lyrics

verse 1

starting to feel like the weight is heavy on my shoulders
dodging the bolder
lifes getting colder as i grow older
told to be a man
but what does that imply
to stare a person down as you watch their image die
never cry
hold back and learn how to lie
unhealthy benefits of how to survive
another black man dies
but nobody pays attention to the cop
ready waiting for another life to stop
it’s hard for the normal to see
cause they don’t want to believe
the hidden darkness beyond their precious garden of eve
protected by protection of the brutal kind
from the safety of your home you can kill it’s fine


hook

it seems i lose it all at the drop of a dime
and when i try to climb
i’m right back behind
either way the way is fine
as long as i got time for the rhyme
looking for the love of mankind
blind


hook

it seems i lose it all at the drop of a dime
and when i try to climb
i’m right back behind
either way the way is fine
as long as i got time for rhyme
looking for the love of mankind
blind


verse 2

use the operator
dial 9 eleven
call the cops
than wait for the next life to stop
assisted homicide
and a warning to many others
with color
keep away or be discovered
turn the opposite way
or your body will lay
in the street bleeding out like a product display
so many ways
this plays inside my head on repeat
never growing old being reaped
the future isn’t mine
i provide a stable step for the ones getting over
as i choose to face life sober
truth hurts
and the consequence depends on pigment
i’m not suppose to show that i’m indignant
more than a figment
that just gets poked or prod
i’m a living human being and not close to god
just flesh and bone twist in this in this hyped up facade
waiting on the trigger finger to decide law


hook

it seems i lose it all at the drop of a dime
and when i try to climb
i’m right back behind
either way the way is fine
as long as i got time for rhyme
looking for the love of mankind
blind
