Testo della canzone Man Down (Joe Budden), tratta dall'album All Love Lost

Man Down - Joe Budden


Mic check, mic check
It go

Okay the wait's up, waited up, really don't know where to start
Niggas fresh home want me dead and gone, I'm darin' y'all
It's in arms reach when I'm sleep, I'm prepared for y'all
Niggas bleed, big agree, ain't nobody scared of y'all

Besides, let me summarize, they ain't got to wherewithal
I'm e'ywhere, they never there, when I'm gon' hear from y'all?
Y'all know me as Joe, don't wanna see me as Mouse
Let me address all these rumors so they don't leave out the house

I mean it started with Clue, that's when the bullshit begun
I was the best in my city, niggas knew I was the one
Ain't have a dime to my name, still niggas thought that I won
And niggas that never did it want to tell me how it was done

I'm hearin' some wanna clap, they don't fuck with me, nigga
They say I never go back, well that's a luxury, nigga
It's somethin' I can afford, so what they say get ignored
They pray I'm on the wrong end of that Ford

They want me man down

They want me man down

(Okay) okay, let's start it from scratch, put it all online
My character been defamed, I put it all online
Told 'em that's where we were headed, said I was wrong all the time
And now we finally here, I waited a long ass time

Been called every name in the book, been a liar, a deceiver
A cheater, a woman beater, am I all, am I neither?
Been absorbin' the ether, robbin' Paul to pay Peter
High price to pay to strangers I been offering me to

I've been more than a leader, even with my back to the wall
Thought I was finished forever when I was practicin' falls
Now you second guessin' yourself, you gotta ask what you saw
They fishin', wishin' it's fiction, but ain't no actin' at all

Can't even fathom the gall, they mad I'm appalled
Too much passion to call, nothin' but bars, ain't no fashion involved, how this path ain't adored
How the fuck they laughin', I had a blast through the door
Ain't fathom havin' so much cash in the drawer

First they love me and then they hate me, then they love me again
First it's lovely and then it's ugly, then it's fuck me again
Bitches don't text back and then they suck me again
But still it's none of my business what they think of me again

When we talk about skill, they just me love again
I call 'em out for the kill, they just doubt me again
But I was born for the storm, I mean abnormal's the norm
Maybe they wanna know how long will they mourn

They wanna man down

They want me man down

(Everybody) I'm wishin' this was a dream, maybe it's smoke in this mirror
Wish I could change it all just by blowin' smoke in the mirror
It's been such a long ride, wishin' I was on the side
To get caffeine pills to stay awake with Sean Price

If I was by Eric Garner, I'd have yelled at the pigs
Gave him all my cash, he wouldn't have to sell that cig
Shout to Bobbi Kristina, let her know that I love her
Wish she was alive or didn't die the same as her mother

Maybe my thinkin' is off, when I blink I get thoughts
Of bullets shakin' the door, and tape around Chinx Porsche
See it damaged my heart, I'd be right in Yams' car
To get the purp out his cup, and get his hands off the bar

Tell Stack that I miss him, see we losin' a lot
I wanna hear from Shakir, I still miss Stuart Scott
Chris Lighty, Robin Williams still to this day
I pray nobody ever feel that way, too many man down

Too many man down

Down, down, down
