Akira The Don – The Greatest Year Lyrics (feat. Gary Vee)

it was dark and cold outside
We just get used to shit so fast
And in our speed
Of getting used to how f*cking awesome it is
I’m just desperate
For you to not lose perspective
(Chorus)
This is the greatest year
To ever be alive
In the history of mankind
This is the greatest year
To ever be alive
In the history of mankind
This is the best
This is the best
This is the greatest year
To ever be alive
In the history of mankind
Both my grandfathers had the same exact thing that I had
And because they were Jewish in communist Russia post-World War II
Their communism put them both in jail
For 10 years in Siberia
Like, just think about that
Timing, opportunity, yes
Life is binary
It’s either offense or defense
You’re either sitting in your seat right now
On the offense, or you’re not
There is no f*cking half pregnant
There’s no in between
You’re either this or that
(Electronic Voice)
This is the greatest year
To ever be alive
In the history of mankind Let’s welcome to the stage
Mr. Gary Vaynerchuk
All right, let’s go, let’s go
Sit down, let’s do   this
I   wish
I wish we   had better perspective
I wish that there   was some weird genie
That could take us back into time
So   that   every   one of you   could live one   f*cking day
In your great-great-grandparents’ shoes
And understand how f*cking good you have it
Understand how f*cking good you have it
Like, if you really, really understood
Really, really understood
I’m not naive to what’s happening in our society
Let me just say this very clear
So, everybody gets it through their f*cking dome
(Chorus)
This is the greatest year
To ever be alive
In the history of mankind
This is the greatest year
To ever be alive
In the history of mankind
This is the best
This is the best
This is the greatest year
To ever be alive
In the history of mankind
Fascinated by this
Fascinated by f*cking mindset
It’s a binary decision
If you’re gonna be positive or negative about shit
When you bet on optimism
When you’re on the offense
When you were playing towards intangibles
You do something super-duper interesting
You start suffocating excuses
If you asked me
What the number one thing is
That I’m thankful for that my parents gave me
Taking me from a communist country
And moving me to the US
Parenting me well, roof and clothes
If you asked me the number-one thing
I wake up every morning
And thank that my parents did
Is I never saw either one of them complain about jack shit
And it basically created learned behavior for me
I’m incapable of
Actually complaining about shit
(Chorus)
This is the greatest year
To ever be alive
In the history of mankind
This is the greatest year
To ever be alive
In the history of mankind
This is the best
This is the best
This is the greatest year
To ever be alive
In the history of mankind
This is the best
We have it the best
And all I see is people sitting around
Dwelling around dumb shit
What they don’t have
Instead of focusing on what they do have
The Internet is a f*cking miracle
It’s a f*cking miracle
The Internet is a f*cking miracle
It’s a f*cking miracle
There was no side hustle for your great grandparents
When it was 9:00 p.m.
