FOR MY PEOPLE

Joey Bada$$

Lyrics

You know

Yeah

Always wanted to have super powers

You know, uh

It's for my people, tryin' stay alive and just stay peaceful

So hard to survive a world so lethal

Who will take a stand and be our hero

For my people, yeah

It's for my people, tryin' to stay alive and just stay peaceful

So hard to survive a world so lethal

Who will take a stand and be our hero

Uh, not all heroes don't wear capes

And all villains don't get away

But all limits eventually fade

I don't wanna be good, nigga I'm tryin' to be great

It's hard when your back's against the wall

And if you got an order keep your feet up on the floor

That's why I thank the Lord when I wake up in the morn'

'Cause through him you can see every reason I was born

You can see the power when the mic is in my palm

When I storm across the room, hit the stage and perform

Word is bond, don't be alarmed

Don't let me have to sound a horn, and drop a bomb

Want to get my mom a crib, with a lawn

Something that my future kids, can run up on

That's why I always do my best to carry on

Heaven's like game of chess, don't be a pawn my nigga

It's for my people, tryin' to stay alive and just stay peaceful

So hard to survive a world so lethal

Who will take a stand and be our hero

For my people, yeah

It's for my people, tryin' to stay alive and just stay peaceful

So hard to survive a world so lethal

Who will take a stand and be our hero

Look up in the sky, it's a bird it's a plane

No, it's the young black God livin' out his dreams

What you mean I been up on an ultralight beam

They don't wanna see you fly, they just gonna shoot your wings

Everything, ain't what it seem

Wishing all these dirty cops, would come clean

Still swerving on these city blocks, for one thing

I may just cop the 30 shot, protect the team, know what I mean?

Music is a form of expression

I'mma use mine just to teach you a lesson

Rule one: this microphone's a weapon

I'm shootin' out the actions manifested in my passion

Influencing and surpassing, they expect to see a life in my direction

Man that section 8 depressin'

Hard to be progression through recession and oppression

Not to mention that they had our soul blocked ever since an adolescent

It's for my people, tryin' to stay alive and just stay peaceful

So hard to survive a world so lethal

Who will take the stand and be our hero

For my people, yeah

It's for my people, tryin' to stay alive and just stay peaceful

So hard to survive a world so lethal

Who will take the stand and be our hero

Oh, mm
