You see the playing field was never really that even
We just let you play the game but you dropped the ball

from J. Cole – Miss America Reprise Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Life isn’t fair but that doesn’t mean you can’t make it fairer than it is right now. It doesn’t mean you just sit around and let things happen to you. You have the opportunity to do something for yourself and make changes to the world, but you’re just sitting there on your couch doing nothing.
