    the real right here
    feel me

    A tree grows

    This is what it is, not a perception
    So much deception, like a youth’s question
    Manufactured war, A.R., surveillance from a star
    Pebbles is the mind, but stones we are
    Grasp the component, 40, postpone it
    Sense of cents, then condone it
    Wet pads on the face, there was ten faced
    Census number suddenly erased
    Stick to the script, don’t write your own story
    Built up from swollen hands, hand me attire
    Act like ain’t no fire, children lack desire
    The manuscript was deemed .6, three-fifth’s
    Uphold the truth, truly giving gifts

    Under siege, how can you breathe
    Babies don’t cook, they teeth
    Can I get the hook up?
    The note is just a look up
    Keen in the streets, but not the walled in streets
    If education was more like the beats
    African drums, kingdom come, origin or come from
    God’s son, never done, was spun off those hung
    Many gave they life, choice was worth the pain
    Our downpour is over, we still remain slain
    Houses we never build cars we never mix
    Obscene views when you pushin on six

    Foundations, cracked procreation, impact a nation
    Rolling thunder, cries insist inspiration
    For a people to stand demand whats been bland
    Put that G in your hand, let’s land
    Design a floor plan, who will understand
    One man scaled to many in crook’s land
