J Cole – Be Free “All we wanna do is be happy”

06 Feb

Can you tell me why
Every time I step outside I see my people die
I’m lettin’ you know
That there ain’t no gun they make that can kill my soul
Oh no

“No disrespect, in terms of change I haven’t seen any_Maybe he had good intentions but was stifled by the system”

Forget this chain, cause this ain’t me
Though I’m eternally grateful to Jay Z
We so elated, we celebrated like Obama waited until his last day in office to tell the nation, brothers is getting their reparations, hey
A man can dream, can’t he?
No disrespect, in terms of change I haven’t seen any
Maybe he had good intentions but was stifled by the system
And was sad to learn that he actually couldn’t bring any
That’s what I get for thinking, this world is fair
They let a brother steer the ship
And never told him that the ship was sinkin’

“Forget that watch, you paid too much for_You ‘ought to be ashamed”

But I got other shit to think about, like my bank account
Forget that watch, you paid too much for
You ‘ought to be ashamed
When brothers back home be dreading when the seasons change
Cause they ain’t got no heat and they ain’t got no AC
WalMart distribution fired my homie, he just had a baby
You wonder why it’s been so many B and E’s lately
While brothers from the hood shooting like this is TNT lately
And since all the ballers leaving college early
I turn on the TV and don’t see no brothers with degrees lately

“I turn on the TV and don’t see no brothers with degrees lately”

 

Song by J cole performed at at the Late Night Show with David Lotterman
