Hip-Hop for grown folks

Said I'm not gonna say, "You" y'all I'm gonna say, "We."
Sometimes I sit and think about it, yo how numb can we be?
How could it go so far, how'd it get so funky?
That we could walk a mile in footsteps of a porch monkey.
That we could break a barrier without one key.
Then turn around and try to imitate a mob flunky.
We're not together y'all. And most of us have forgotten,
Those at the top don't want nothing to do with those at the bottom.
And that's bad when you put a price tag on sad.
Had aspirations of a kingdom but the plans gone bad.
And every man's gone mad, I'm feeling so defeated,
Wasted so much time chasing what I never needed.
'Til I heard an echo, "Let go!"
You'll be richer when you stop chasing crumbs,
Cuz the cakes a bigger picture.
Got too many penny's in our hands to hold the dollars.
Got too many problems in the world to kill the scholars.

Said I'm so numb,
I really couldn't care in the end,
That I'm so dumb.
I plot against myself never depending, on no one.
Sometimes I need to pray I find a way,
But I'm so numb and I'm so dumb.

And I'm so lost,
I never thought to put it on a scale,
What my soul cost.
The crime, I've got no money for my bail.
Set for no course.
Sometimes I need to pray I find a way,
But I'm so numb and I'm so dumb.
