 Struggling with I Believe? Become a better singer in 30 days with these videos!

So disappointed
We all disappointed
All disappointed

Now, I believe in a lot of things
Believe karma real, believe Allah King
Believe the bible is re-written,
The preacher be bullshittin'
So when they speak, believe not a thing
Believe ML King had a dream, for real
He in Heaven, and we be dealing with demons, still
Like a episode of Pinky And The Brain, for real
Wanna run and rule errthing, for real
Well, Goddamn (Hol' up, hol' up)

Whatchu think gon' happen when you die, my man (die, my man)
Even better, whatchu gon' do when they push you in the fire, my man

Well I'm a sinner (true) but not like you
I ain't been malicious in the shit I do
Well, I might smoke me a blunt or two (uh)
Ménage every month or two
Sell dope to get some money, shit I wanna do law
But I can't go to school, ain't go the money to
Rather give me fifty years than a scholarship
Anything to keep me outta politics
I believe politicians pull a lot of tricks
The war on drugs, crack epidemic, all o' 'dat
The death of Bob Marley and Malcolm X
'Pac and Biggie too, but I ain't really sure wit dat

Believe Jesus, die for my sins
Don't need no fake image for me to hide behind man
The KKK and the USA got a thang
Like Superman got for Lois Lane

Uncle Sam lifting Lady Justice dress up
Grabbing on the pussy yelling, "Show that thang"
Now be clear, I ain't tryna this ain't no black thang or white thang
It's a dead wrong and right thang

Believe white supremacy, think I'ont see
Everything they tryna bring down on me
Like the stop and frisk, mass incarceration
That perpetuation of recidivism
That mean they create a system hard to break
That why millions still behind bar today
Columbus Day you believe a holiday
What about Capone and Doc Holliday
Lucky Luciano, John Gotti day
Bumpy Johnson and Larry Hoover day
Happy Meech day, Happy Tookie day
Happy Hitler day, sounds stupid, eh?
That's 'cause hypocrisy more American than democracy
Far as I can see the Constitution wasn't for folk that look like me
And that what I believe

Wanna be better, but you down at the moment
Give that shit to God, it be better in the morning
Still think your skin make you way more important
Nah (hol' up)
All this money but you still can't afford me
Gotta sell your soul just to get up on the Forbes list
Leader of the generation, I'ma get us all in

Ok, all your plans ain't worth for damn
'Cause in front of God, you are just a man
Wanna take advantage of a lesser man
Build a wall, keeping out the Mexican
Go to Standing Rock and wanna poison water
Just like Michigan, now ain't this a bitch
If I learned anything, I've seen any bitch can be president (hold up)
I say, that nigga hostile, get the yellow flare in they nostril (hold up)
God never said weapons wouldn't form, he just said they wouldn't prosper

Stand for your people, yup
Stand, lift your brother up
It's time, lift your sister up (ya, ya, ya)
Stand for your people, yup
We can't give another f*ck
Message to America

So disappointing, we all disappointed
'Bout to do some more play, Oh you want that O-A?
How you doing numbers very similar to my case
Neighborhood like a battlefield, we are not safe
I believe we are not safe, I believe we are not safe
I believe, that what I believe, that what I believe, we are not safe
I believe we are not safe, I believe we are not safe
That what I believe, we are not safe
That what I believe, that what I believe, ay
