Paroles Interlude: Pedestals

Le - Par .

But man, I done been through it all, so I, I said
"I wanna tell my story." 'Cause I never cried or nothing
And that's where the "Make 'em say uhh uhh," that's like my pain
That's basically what it is. That's my battle cry
Think about it. None of us are perfect. We live in an imperfect world
You know, only God can judge me, that's how I look at it
The people that's sitting around pointing their fingers
Imagine all the stuff they're probably doing
Whether you're police officers, doctors, lawyers, presidents
Whatever, you got good and bad in everything
You know, we're putting people on a pedestal
That's just a human like us. You know
I mean, they got more drugs in the rich neighborhoods
Than they got in the hood. A lot of their kids dying
From overdose and things like that, think about it
Black kids have to figure it out! We don't have rehabs to go to
You gotta rehab yourself. But for us
You can't pull the plug on us and tell us it's over. Not me!
