Testo della canzone IAM (Kendrick Lamar), tratta dall'album Kendrick Lamar

IAM - Kendrick Lamar

Everybody put three fingers in the air
The sky is falling, the wind is calling
Stand for something or die in the morning
Section 80, HiiiPoWeR

Visions of Martin Luther staring at me
Malcolm X put a hex on my future, someone catch me
I'm falling victim to a revolutionary song
The Serengeti's clone
Back to put you backstabbers back on your spinal bone
You slipped your disc when I slid you my disc
You wanted to diss, but jumped on my dick
Grown men never should bite their tongue
Unless you eating pussy that smell like it's a stale plum
I got my finger on the motherfucking pistol
Aiming it at a pig, Charlotte's Web is gonna miss you
My issue isn't televised, and you ain't gotta tell the wise

How to stay on beat, because our life's an instrumental

This is physical and mental, I won't sugar-coat it

You'd die from diabetes if these other niggas wrote it

And everything on TV just a figment of imagination

I don't want no plastic nation, +dread+ that like a Haitian

While you motherfuckers waiting, I be off the slave ship

Building pyramids, writing my own hieroglyphs

Just call the shit HiiiPoWeR
Nigga, nothing less than HiiiPoWeR
Five-star dishes, food for thought bitches

I mean the shit is, Huey Newton going stupid

You can't resist his, HiiiPoWeR
Throw your hands up for HiiiPoWeR

Visions of Martin Luther staring at me

If I see it how he seen it, that would make my parents happy

Sorry mama, I can't turn the other cheek
They wanna knock me off the edge like a fucking widow's peak, uhh

And she always told me pray for the weak, uhh

Them demons got me, I ain't prayed in some weeks, uhh
Dear Lord come save me, the Devil's working hard

He probably clocking double shifts on all of his jobs

Frightening, so fucking frightening
Enough to drive a man insane, I need a license

To kill, I'm standing on a field full of land mines
Doing the moonwalk, hoping I blow up in time
Cause 2012 might not be a fucking legend

Trying to be a fucking legend, the man of mankind

Who said a black man in the Illuminati?
Last time I checked that was the biggest racist party
So get up off that slave ship

Build your own pyramids, write your own hieroglyphs

Just call the shit HiiiPoWeR

Nigga, nothing less than HiiiPoWeR
Five-star dishes, food for thought bitches
I mean the shit is, Bobby Seale making meals
You can't resist his, HiiiPoWeR
Throw your hands up for HiiiPoWeR

+ (Kendrick Lamar)
Every day we fight the system
Just to make our way, we been down for too long

But that's alright, we was built to be strong
Cause it's our life, na-na-nah
Every day we fight the system
We fight the system
We fight the system
(Never liked the system)
We been down for too long
But that's alright, na-na-nah

Who said a black man in Illuminati?
Last time I checked that was the biggest racist party
Last time I checked, we was racing with Marcus Garvey
On the freeway to Africa till I wreck my Audi
And I want everybody to view my autopsy
So you can see exactly where the government had shot me
No conspiracy, my fate is inevitable
They play musical chairs once I'm on that pedestal
Frightening, so fucking frightening
Enough to drive a man insane, a woman insane
The reason Lauryn Hill don't sing, or Kurt Cobain
Loaded that clip and then said 'Bang!', the drama it bring
Is crazy, product of the late 80s
Trying to stay above water, that's why we shun the Navy
Pull your guns and play me, let's set it off
Cause a riot, throw a Molotov
Somebody told me them pirates had got lost
Cause we been off them slave ships
Got our own pyramids, write our own hieroglyphs

Just call the shit HiiiPoWeR
Yeah, nothing less than HiiiPoWeR
Five-star dishes, food for thought bitches
I mean the shit is, Fred Hampton on your campus
You can't resist his, HiiiPoWeR
Throw your hands up for HiiiPoWeR

Thug life
Thug LIFE!
