Oh, when it all, it all falls down
I'm telling you, oh, it all falls down

Oh, when it all, it all falls down
I'm telling you, oh, it all falls down

Man, I promise, she's so self conscious
She has no idea what she's doing in college
That major that she majored in don't make no money
But she won't drop out, her parents will look at her funny

Now, tell me that ain't insecure
The concept of school seems so secure
Sophomore, three years, ain't picked a career
She like, f*ck it, I'll just stay down here and do hair

'Cause that's enough money to buy her a few pairs of new airs
'Cause her baby daddy don't really care
She's so precious with the peer pressure
Couldn't afford a car so she named her daughter Alexus

She had hair so long that it looked like weave
Then she cut it all off now she look like Eve
And she be dealing with some issues that you can't believe
Single black female, addicted to retail and well

Oh, when it all, it all falls down
I'm telling you oh, it all falls down

Man I promise, I'm so self conscious
That's why you always see me with at least one of my watches
Rollies and Pasha's done drove me crazy
I can't even pronounce nothing, pass that Versace

Then I spent 400 bucks on this
Just to be like nigga you ain't up on this
And I can't even go to the grocery store
Without some ones that's clean and a shirt with a team

It seems we living the American dream
The people highest up got the lowest self esteem
The prettiest people do the ugliest things
For the road to riches and diamond rings

We shine because they hate us, floss 'cause they degrade us
We trying to buy back our 40 acres
And for that paper, look how low we a'stoop
Even if you in a Benz, you still a nigga in a coop

Oh, when it all, it all falls down
I'm telling you, oh, it all falls down

I say f*ck the police, that's how I treat 'em
We buy our way out of jail, but we can't buy freedom
We'a buy a lot of clothes but we don't really need 'em
Things we buy to cover up what's inside

'Cause they made us hate ourself and love they wealth
That's why shorty's hollering, "Where the ballas' at?"
Drug dealer buy Jordans, crackhead buy crack
And a white man get paid off of all a dat

But I ain't even gon' act holier than thou
'Cause f*ck it, I went to Jacob with 25 thou
Before I had a house and I'd do it again
'Cause I wanna be on 106 and Park pushing a Benz

I wanna act ballerific like it's all terrific
I got a couple past due bills, I won't get specific
I got a problem with spending before I get it
We all self conscious, I'm just the first to admit it

Oh, when it all, it all falls down
I'm telling you, ohh, it all falls down

Oh, when it all, it all falls down
I'm telling you, ohh, it all falls down

Oh, when it all, it all falls down
I'm telling you, ohh, it all falls down

Oh, when it all, it all falls down
I'm telling you, ohh, it all falls down

(I's can't keep workin' like this
This grave shift is like a slave ship)
