Ollie Joseph – Trial & Error (Lyrics | Audio)

Lyrics “Trial & Error” by Ollie Joseph

Fall down, bruised up
Just me myself and I, we gone have to group up
Look up to the sky, howl at the moon cause
I’m alive and I’m feeling like I gotta prove something

This an everyday struggle, I’m asking me if its really worth it
Self inflicted stress got me really nervous, sacrificing
Time with loved ones, for the grind of the come up
Got my mind all f*cked up, feel like a different person

Day job bitter working, like huh, I was born for this
Get a degree, and work a job up on some boring sh*t
Im a creative, I can’t slave, Ideas pouring in
But I need a job, this cost of living is enormous, sh*t

I’m ain’t gonna lie, I’ve cried thinking what if this doesn’t work
What if song that took 3 days to write is just another verse
Something deep up in my cerebral is telling me not to quit it
Gut’s saying shut the f*ck up, don’t complain, go out and get it

Go act on intuition, don’t fall farther behind
The hard work beats out the talent cause it’s harder to find
Now self belief and me work tandem, thats my partner in crime
Was throwing shade up on my self, stopped and starting to shine

Yeah, I gotta risk losing
But I’m grounded, just gotta stick to it
Trial and error proving real, this is hard to get
People who doubt it, surround me, but they ain stopping sh*t

Fall down, bruised up
Just me myself and I, we gone have to group up
Look up to the sky, howl at the moon cause
I’m alive and I’m feeling like I gotta prove something

Don’t follow, can’t stand with the rest of them
Comforts a disease, and this action is medicine
Put it out to the public, showing love to his messages
The plays building up, I’ve got actual evidence

Only boss moves, looking for a desk to put my feet on
I’m out here feeling like i’ve got a hunnid respawns
I’m out here feeling like I’m bout to f*ckin cheat on
Everything we see grown, up I proceed knowing

I could lose it all, the list of consequences stupid long
Feel I’m made for it, I need somebody prove I’m wrong
Artist claim they’re up next, I just laugh at how their que is off
Do to pop, pops want me to get my schooling on

But I can’t stop till the plans finished
Gotta master the vision, get a doctorate in writtens
Staying def to a critic, I’m me, I can’t listen
If they try to set ceilings, Ima push it past limits

yeah, I gotta risk losing
But I’m grounded, just gotta stick to it
Trial and error proving real, this is hard to get
People who doubt it, surround me, but they ain stopping sh*t

Fall down, bruised up
Just me myself and I, we gone have to group up
Look up to the sky, howl at the moon cause
I’m alive and I’m feeling like I gotta prove something

Fall down, bruised up
Just me myself and I, we gone have to group up
Look up to the sky, howl at the moon cause
I’m alive and I’m feeling like I gotta prove something…
