Verse 1:

3 days before my birthday, it’s beautiful outside

Watchin’ the sun rise, barely opening an eye

When the orange meets the yellow and the sun seems to dwell low

I hit you wit’ a Ruby, nice to meet you, and a hello

While I dream about the days up in Eastern Leyte, lately

Raised in San Lorenzo, but Tacloban City made me

Knew my life would change from the album mama gave

Magalona to this day, and the poetry that saved me

Like Uzumaki when I spiral with the skill

If you take away this body's just a vessel for the real

Destination to the moon like I’m Heinlein, in my mind

Watch the thoughts bloom, ‘cuz if I rhyme, then I find

Writing monsoons from my bloodline, in due time

Owe it to my mother, lines deep like her smile lines

The womb too the moon every tune make you miss this

Summa cum lyricist, tell me who da realest is!

 

Hook:

Hit em with realness one time, one two

I hit em with realness one time, one two

Gotta hit em with realness one time, one two

Come look into my eyes, I got a bird's eye view

Hit em with realness one time, one two

I hit em with realness one time, one two

Gotta hit em with realness one time, one two

Come look into my eyes, I got a bird's eye view

 

Verse 2:

And when the sun go down, do you feel that moon?

I was that seed in the dark that no one thought would bloom

The places that I’m from, people gone too soon

So like a fly on the wall, I try to gauge my room

Like what you wake up for when the dawn breaks?

When everythings at stake, how you work with that mindstate?

You wish for a clean slate, I’d rather have a full crate

Of drum breaks and heart breaks, my one plate, can bear weight, that might make

You less of an enemy, we feed off the energy

M E before M C, i.e. you get all of me

Fools dream of fools gold, I won’t be a fool, so

Drown me in a pool of Atomic 79, “aye you,” can you remind how gold and ruby be divine?

But if the object is to shine, I wanna brighten up this mind

There's a picture bigger than this, emcees that’s better than me

If we talkin’ ‘bout the realest then it better be me! Aye!

 

Repeat hook

 

Verse 3:

Mama look at me, this the person I become

Half beast, half girl with a sword for a tongue

Oddly, being this godly, take my prey and disembody

I gotta drop it and rock it to top its more than a hobby

But, ain’t no "deal" for "I" like I talked to a Shinigami

My rhymes are "death notes," how many beats I gotta body?

I’m a “mad villain,” I relapse and “do miles”

Y’all “Doomed MF’s” can’t mask your used styles

These idioms I’m sendin ‘em to idiots and simpletons

Don’t pity ‘em, I sentence ‘em, opinions, depending when

We role models so the stage like runways

We tryna run away to one way, the sun’s rays

Focus on our daughters and the way our son’s raised

Uh, Ruby Ibarra, I’ma make it one day, yuh...

Ruby Ibarra, I’ma make it one... way, uh...

Yuh, Ruby Ibarra, I’ma make it some... day
