We survived, we here, we got this, which I think is out of sight”
[Verse 2: Chuck Strangers]
First me and Robi break up
Now every day I wake up, with more bullshit as I arrive to the pulpit
Pro Era apostle (preach), nigga droppin’ gospels
Chucky be a reverend, Psalm 47
God is the king of all on earth
But after him know that the Era is first (know that)
Know it’s all about knowin’ your worth
Thank Christ for savin’ my life today
Know I have the right of way
I’m blessed to see a brighter day (blessed)
Keep me away from ruthless
You can teach a man a lesson, but don’t make him feel stupid
Put me on, don’t put me down, my g
We all out here just tryna be
Fine lines between egos and insecurities
You ain’t less of a man if you don’t squeeze (if you don’t squeeze, don’t squeeze)
You not necessarily a man if you do
Chalk it up to human nature, ’cause it’s just what men do (it’s just what men do)
Self-destruct with no fucks, all of to give up
I’m Chuck, Strangers
[Outro]
“And like I see a whole new future opening up for me and like I really don’t want to do all the things I’ve done over the years before. ‘Uhh Joey, look these guys are doin’ somethin’ they have no reason to be doin’, I mean, what’s goin’ on here?’
Joey, he’d go out there and talk to ’em and they’ll listen, suddenly Joe will go crazy, you know?”
[Verse 1: Joey Bada$$]
Hold up
What’s life like now? And when nobody knows, word don’t get out and you don’t get busted.” I really don’t want to do them again. Shots of the expresso
Gettin’ star bucks been the basic manifesto
I’m up early mornin’, breakin’ fast through the thresholds (uh-huh)
They tell I’ma wear myself out, but that’s the dress code (swag)
Unlock the swag and nigga let’s go
We securin’ bags, you niggas insecure and mad
One hundred thirty on the dash, that’s if my nigga Lex drove
Keep the heat, the stash, if you got
Usually we positive, just tryna stay blessed though
I’d rather to be safe, never know what to expect yo
In the streets, we livin’ in, niggas invidious, serious
And ’cause of this, inside of me, kept hidden, it’s hideous (uh)
And that’s ugly truth, I’m speakin’ from my troubled youth
To whom I try to give a mental boost when I’m in the booth
Been through the struggle, made it out, I’m the livin’ proof
I took the pain like I pull it from my wisdom tooth (nigga)
[Interlude]
“We’re still surviving, you know we took our bruises and we came out. [Intro]
“I mean the reason they call him ‘Crazy Joe’ he goes off once in a while. But, like if I do them, like in the past, I don’t go around bragging ‘I done this, I done that,’ to myself so nobody knows about it. Uhh, but he’s the type of guy you can go to and talk to, you know?

Lyrics Joey Bada$$ – Land of the free

Can’t change the world unless we change ourselves
Die from the sicknesses if we don’t seek the health
All eyes be my witness when I speak what’s felt
Full house on my hands, the cards I was dealt
Three K’s, Two A’s in Amerikkka
I’m just a black spade spawn out the nebula
And everything I do is and say today is worthwhile
Went for showing and inspire action in your first child
I’ll begin my verse now.(land of the free)

Sometimes I speak and I feel like it ain’t my words
Like I’m just a vessel channeling inside this universe
I feel my ancestors arrested inside of me
It’s like they want me to shoot my chance and change society
But how do I go about it? Tell me where I start?
My destiny rerouted when I chose to follow heart
You told to follow suit, but tell me what it do for you?
Except weigh you down, now you trapped inside the cubicle they built for us
The first step in the change is to take notice
Realize the real games that they tried to show us
300 plus years of them cold shoulders
Yet 300 million of us still got no focus
Sorry America, but I will not be your soldier
Obama just wasn’t enough, I just need some more closure
And Donald Trump is not equipped to take this country over
Let’s face facts ’cause we know what’s the real motives.

In the land of the free, it’s for the free loaders
Leave us dead in the street then be your organ donors
They disorganized my people, made us all loners
Still got the last names of our slave owners
In the land of the free, it’s for the free loaders
Leave us dead in the street then be your organ donors
They disorganized my people, made us all loners.

Can’t change the world unless we change ourselves
Die from the sicknesses if we don’t seek the health
All eyes be my witness when I speak what’s felt
Full house on my hands, the cards I was dealt
Three K’s, Two A’s in Amerikkka
I’m just a black spade spawn out the nebula
And everything I do is and say today is worthwhile
Went for showing and inspire action.

Trickery in the system, put my niggas in prison
All our history hidden, ain’t no liberty given
We all fit the description of what the documents written
We been lacking the vision and barely making a living
We too worried to fit in while they been benefitin’
Every time you submittin’, we all guilty admit it
The lord won’t get you acquitted, but you still ask for forgiveness
Put opiates in syringes then inject his religion
How many times do I gotta tell you I’m a man on a mission
Many times I gotta tell you I don’t need no permission
Or human with supervision, ain’t no livin’ condition
I’m reaching out to my children, just hoping that they will listen
Start a new coalition against corrupt politicians
It’s not enough pots to piss in, too many murder convictions
Another family evicted, another black man a victim
That’s as real as it’s getting, you should take recognition.

In the land of the free, it’s for the free loaders
Leave us dead in the street then be your organ donors
They disorganized my people, made us all loners
Still got the last name of our slave owners
In the land of the free, it’s for the free loaders
Leave us dead in the street then be your organ donors
They disorganized my people, made us all loners.

Can’t change the world unless we change ourselves
Die from the sicknesses if we don’t seek the health
All eyes be my witness when I speak what’s felt
Full house on my hands, the cards I was dealt
Three K’s, Two A’s in Amerikkka
I’m just a black spade spawn out the nebula
And everything I do is and say today is worthwhile
Went for showing and inspire action in your first childdd.
