  • Alls my life I has to fight, nigga
    Alls my life I
    Hard times like God
    Bad trips like: "God!"
    Nazareth, I'm fucked up
    Homie you fucked up
    But if God got us we then gon' be alright

    Nigga, we gon' be alright
    Nigga, we gon' be alright
    We gon' be alright
    Do you hear me, do you feel me? We gon' be alright
    Nigga, we gon' be alright
    Huh? We gon' be alright
    Nigga, we gon' be alright
    Do you hear me, do you feel me? We gon' be alright

    Uh, and when I wake up
    I recognize you're lookin' at me for the pay cut
    Behind my side we lookin' at you from the face down
    What mac-11 even boom with the bass down
    Schemin'! And let me tell you bout my life
    Painkillers only put me in the twilight
    What pretty pussy and Benjamin is the highlight
    Now tell my mama I love her but this what I like
    Lord knows, 20 of 'em in my Chevy
    Tell 'em all to come and get me, reapin' everything I sow
    So my karma come and Heaven no preliminary hearing
    So my record and my motherfucking gang can stand in silence for the record
    Tell the world I know it's too late
    The hoes, the girls think I gone crazy
    Try and fight my vices all day
    Won't you please believe when I say

    When you know, we been hurt, been down before, nigga
    When my pride was low, lookin' at the world like, "where do we go, nigga?"
    And we hate Popo, wanna kill us dead in the street for sure, nigga
    I'm at the preacher's door
    My knees gettin' weak and my gun might blow but we gon' be alright

    Nigga, we gon' be alright
    Nigga, we gon' be alright
    We gon' be alright
    Do you hear me, do you feel me? We gon' be alright
    Nigga, we gon' be alright
    Huh? We gon' be alright
    Nigga, we gon' be alright
    Do you hear me, do you feel me? We gon' be alright

    What you want, a house or a car
    40 acres and a mule, a piano a guitar
    Anything, see my name is Lucy, I'm your dog
    Motherfucker you can live at the mall
    I can see the evil, I can tell it I know when it's illegal
    I don't think about it, I deposit every other zero
    Thinkin' of my partner put the candy, paint it on the regal
    Diggin' in my pocket ain't a profit, big enough to feed you
    Everyday my logic, get another dollar just to keep you
    In the presence of your chico ah!
    I don't talk about it, be about it, everyday I see cool
    If I got it then you know you got it, Heaven, I can reach you
    Pet dog, pet dog, pet dog, my dog that's all
    Pick back and chat I shut the back for y'all
    I rap, I'm black, on track and rest assured
    My rights, my wrongs are right till I'm right with God

    When you know, we been hurt, been down before, nigga
    When my pride was low, lookin' at the world like, "where do we go, nigga?"
    And we hate Popo, wanna kill us dead in the street for sure, nigga
    I'm at the preacher's door
    My knees gettin' weak and my gun might blow but we gon' be alright

    Nigga, we gon' be alright
    Nigga, we gon' be alright
    We gon' be alright
    Do you hear me, do you feel me? We gon' be alright
    Nigga, we gon' be alright
    Huh? We gon' be alright
    Nigga, we gon' be alright
    Do you hear me, do you feel me? We gon' be alright

    I keep my head up high
    I cross my heart and hope to die
    Lovin' me is complicated
    Too afraid, a lot of changes
    I'm alright and you're a favorite
    Dark nights in my prayers

    I remembered you was conflicted
    Misusing your influence, sometimes I did the same
    Abusing my power full of resentment
    Resentment that turned into a deep depression
    Found myself screamin' in the hotel room
    I didn't wanna self destruct, the evils of Lucy was all around me
    So I went runnin' for answers Writer/s: Mark Anthony Spears, Pharrell Williams, Kendrick Lamar, Kawan Prather
