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
