So Far Gone
See they don't think I sleep I used to turn on hard rock and go to sleep when I was younger I can sleep through anything I, I, just couldn't go to work I, I was depressed, I was down, I was I came out here, ummmm I said f*ck and I just laid down and covered myself up It's a shame You gotta wake up it ain't gonna change, nope If you want better you can get better They trynna downplay where we from Overlooked our section now watch as we overcome Shelter home evictions, family members lost to drugs To ease the pain The first resort was always call the plug (What's good) That's ironic ain't it Church hymns and diatonic phrases Broken homes, CPS Investigations Fridge full of items that passed they expiration This cycle's been continuing for generations Ima break it This our time to shine try to take it And you'll be another star lying on the pavement For my nephews and my nieces who in line waiting I'd give everything I own just to see y'all make it If this don't stop now Tell me when will it 23 running deep enough to be a village Half of them ain't got they father so I'll step into position We ain't never had role models but we got visions nigga I don't want to live like this I don't I don't I want to live by myself I don't want to be homeless again I want the dogs to have a yard and be happy That's what I'm trynna do for you but it's hard They trynna downplay what we worth As if we didn't rise from that crack that's on the curb Momma sold her body cuz rent was due on the first, hmph I'm offended, get defensive cuz it's hurts To ease the pain We did the opposite of go to church That's diabolic ain't it pseudonyms and hyperbolic statements DCFS and foster care placements This cycle's been continuing for generations Ima break it, huh Ima break it, yuh Just be patient With this time I'm taking
