One, two
She was only fifteen, in love with bad R&B
She had to have vision because she saw the star in me
 Encouraged me to write about the drama in my life
To most it seemed strange like something wasn't right 
I used to fall a victim to them lunch room comedians  Something like an Outkast, started smokin' weed and then
I sorta fell into my own
 Kinda felt at home when behind a microphone 
But on the bus ride home
That didn't mean a thang  Harassed by thugs, on the corners they would hang
I got banged on
I got beat down
 Carrying a golf club, walking up the street now
They respect me
They call me crazy 
At least I'm not gettin' punked out on the daily 
And when I look back I wouldn't change a thing at all
 Where do you think I found the strength to be speakin' to y'all?

I take everything 
Your hopes and your dreams and your hate and your lies
Mmm, mmm, mmm, in this life
I'll join everyone 
From the old and the wise to the young as they fly
Ooh, when I die

God is love then hatin' is Satan 
Zen-type patience, got me sittin' here waitin'
On the day when it's okay to love
When black men won't pretend that they are thugs 
When teachers and doctors are treated like celebrities 
You can get a job even if you got a felony  Check out my melody, let's live in harmony 
We in this together, no man has autonomy 
No man is an island, immune to the violence 
This rap race is no place to raise a child in
What's wrong with smilin'? What's wrong with peace?
What's wrong with squashin' beef before they label you deceased?
 Swallow your pride before you choke on your issues 
I know you got family and folks that'll miss you
So don't misuse this gift you've been given 
This life's but a dream you are blessed to be livin'

I take everything 
Your hopes and your dreams and your hate and your lies
Mmm, mmm, mmm, in this life
I'll join everyone 
From the old and the wise to the young as they fly
Ooh, when I die

And basically man, I'm just a dude who tries to do right 
You know I try to make my tomorrows better than my yesterdays  Without hurting anyone else in the process  Cause if you leave the world a better place than it was when you got here, then we all win

Now, there's birth and there's death but the space in between 
Is where the journey takes place and you give it all meaning 
There's waitin' on us all, there's no need to pretend 
No feet are in the feeling where you fear in the end
All good things come to it, walk, don't run to it
At times you want to end it all yourself, don't do it
Be original, be different 
Be the one that stand up and shocks this system 

I take everything 
Your hopes and your dreams and your hate and your lies
Mmm, mmm, mmm, in this life
I'll join everyone 
From the old and the wise to the young as they fly
Ooh, when I die
I take everything 
Mmm, mmm, mmm, in this life
I'll join everyone 

 Cause all men die
