AfricAryaN

Album: Everybody (2017)
  • I feel the Aryan in my blood, it's scarier than a Blood
    Been looking for holy water, now I'm praying for a flood
    It feel like time passing me by slower than a slug
    While this feeling inside of my body seep in like a drug
    Will you hug me, rub me on the back like a child?
    Tell me you love me, need me
    Promise me you'll never leave me
    Even though my daddy, you know he blacker than the street
    With a fist to match, more solid than concrete
    Tell white people I'm black, feel the need to retreat
    Like I should be ashamed of my granddaddy Malik
    But my beautiful black brothers and sisters
    Want to act like I'm adopted
    Go back in time to when my nigga daddy
    Impregnated my cracker momma and stopped it

    My oh my (My oh my)
    Oh my (My oh my)
    I said oh my (Oh my)

    Somebody pinch me
    Black man screaming, trying to convince me I'm not black
    So why the white man wanna lynch me?
    Damn, my skin fair but life's not
    And I'd be lying if I said I didn't care what whites thought
    Or black people said, shit
    Maybe it's in my head
    Like a single mother praying In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida
    Looking around on the ground for a serpent to feed her
    Praying to God, wondering why her baby daddy beat her
    Feeling like the devil finna come and defeat her
    All alone in the wintertime, close to the heater
    Wondering what's gonna happen
    And how the world gonna treat her
    How could her momma mislead her
    And her daddy just leave her?
    Like abracadabra when that magician pull on the lever
    Oh my

    (Oh my) Oh my
    (Oh my) Like the white women said oh my
    Oh my, my, my, my, my
    Ohhh
    Oh my, my, my, my, my
    Oh my
    I don't feel right deep inside
    Feeling like I need to hide
    Everybody wonder why I get high
    'Cause I can't fight the feeling inside
    Oh my, my, my
    Oh my, I said oh my, yeah

    Feeling innocent in a sense has got me feeling on the fence
    And all this shit is so intense
    Don't wanna go to this event
    Just wanna stay home and invent
    And somehow, yeah, that let me vent
    I'm taking shots and drinking liquor
    But that shit don't make a dent in how I'm feeling
    And yes I'm willing to keep chilling on this shit
    I know there's someone out there far away
    Who's feeling all this shit
    And yes I know that when I'm low
    There's so much further I can go
    And so I look up to the sky
    Oh my, oh my

    (Oh my, oh my) Oh my, oh my
    (Oh my, oh my) Oh my, oh my
    (Oh my, oh my) Oh my, oh my
    (I said oh)

    I feel the Aryan in my blood, it's scarier than a Blood

    Sometimes I can't get you out of my mind
    Baby, no I just can't find, I just can't find
    Such a beautiful state of mind
    Beautiful state of mind, such a beautiful state of mind
    Beautiful state of mind

    Sometimes everyday right on time
    But right now in my mind
    It feels like I'm living on borrowed time

    Oh my

    So what now?
    What advice can you give me?
    What advice can I give humanity?
    I suppose so
    Live your life
    Don't waste your days on the negative energy of others
    Remember that you're not your salary
    You're not your house you're not your car
    And no matter how big your bank account is
    Your grave is six feet under just like everyone else's
    So enjoy the days you have
    Worry not bout the days that came before you
    Nor the ones that will follow you in death
    Remember that right here in this moment is all you are guaranteed
    And the fact that you are living is what life is all about
    So live your life to the fullest
    According to your happiness and the betterment of all

    Damn man, we've been walking forever
    Well, Thalias tracking system says we'll be there in just over an hour
    Shit, at least we got good walking music or is that it?
    Oh no, man
    I'm cueing up the fourth album now, his final one

    One, two, three, four
    One, two, three, four, listen
    Look into my eyes
    Tell me you could see beyond the smile that I'm puttin' on
    This front that I'm puttin' up for you
    I spill my soul into a microphone
    With poems written in blood
    In hopes that it's enough for you
    Do you love me yet?
    Do you love me yet?
    No? Okay
    I'll go harder for you
    In fact, I rap till I collapse
    All I wanted was acceptance, my latest lesson
    I'll never feel your approval till I accept my own
    Come from a messed up home, destitute and less informed
    About the ways to raise a child up
    To not become a product
    Of his environment, I need to cry and vent
    But I done built this wall up
    Actin' like everything's all good
    But in reality I'm lookin' for something
    Through bumpin' my favorite rappers I came up after
    Nas, Cole, and Hov
    Eyes closed, I zone till five or so in the morn'
    I'm used to being alone
    Shit, you know how long I've been out on my own?
    Chasing dreams, fantasies of a throne
    One day I wake up and see that it didn't exist all along
    Till then I will pen verses that fans consider brilliant
    Boosting my ego with every million that spills in
    And still then
    I won't find solace, so where's the logic in that?
    Worrying 'bout if they think Logic could rap
    When it all goes back to a childhood, need to be loved
    By parents that was in too deep with the drugs
    Nigga, my advice, fuck the black and white shit
    Be who you are, identify as a star
    No one tells you you're that
    It's something that you just know
    The world be stealing your glow
    Your mama did what she could
    Her life was miles from good
    Your father fell in the trap
    They set for you when you black
    They met when they was low
    And therefore you a product of that
    And so your trauma is deep
    Don't bury it you should weep
    And clean it out of your system, then truly forgive 'em
    Just my opinion, only then can you find peace
    Just start to notice happiness don't come from album release
    I've been through it before
    Can only share with you what I know
    To be true, but at the same time, I'll never be you
    And you'll never be me, no matter how hard that you try
    This is for youngins out there wondering how far you can fly
    The truth is that you could go further than the stars and the sky
    But if you want to then you ought to know why
    Are you running from something
    With hopes of becoming someone
    That's finally worthy of love
    Let me tell you now, you're worthy enough
    Fuck approval from strangers, that shit is dangerous as hell
    Find God, learn to accept yourself
    And I'm gone, accept Him Writer/s: Robert Hall, Arujun Ivatury, Jermaine Cole
