(Intro)
Uh yea, yea, yea, yea, yea

(Chorus)
What am I here for?
I'm a man so I cannot let them tears fall
But understand trynna get my head clear ya'll
This shit is on my mind

Asking for the lord to show me all my signs
Show me something
Cause I'm trynna find something
I'm lost can you show me something
I'm lost can you show me something


(Verse 1)
I sit and reminisce on them niggas no longer here
And how I used to hit the mall and ya was always there

I sit and think how I didn't grow up with my father there
No need to cry cause it only made me stronger yea

I watched my brother get in trouble with the law and yea
That shit cut me like I was sitting in a barber chair
Cause I don't want to see them locked up in them bars in there
And I don't want to see him stretched out in a coffin yea

I'm wishing I can move my momma out so far from here
I know that she deserve much better and she worked hard as hell
That's why you never see me settle
cause they want us here
I'm trynna side step the devil but he heartless yea
But just know that I'm a rebel and yo it's almost here
I'm talking bout the revolution
I am paul revere
So dry your eyes momma please you can pause them tears
Cause I promise I'm gon get us outta here
I'm gon get us outta here


(Chorus)
What am I here for?
I'm a man so I cannot let them tears fall?
But understand trynna get my head clear ya'll this shit is on my mind
Asking for the lord to show me all my signs
Show me something
Cause I'm trynna find something
I'm lost can u show me something
I'm lost can you show me something


(Verse 2)
I swear I'm praying for my niggas when I say grace
I know them niggas don't care who they hit they spray strays

But lord please protect my family cause if they graze
Niggas is loading up that ammi and them A-K's

I know it's wrong and that revenge is all in your hands
But last night I heard they robbed and killed an old man
Now if they cold enough to take a life that's innocent
I know that they could give a fuck whether I live and shit

And so I'm asking you if you can hold me down lord
Be my umbrella-ella-ella in this down pour
I know you never ever ever let me down or
Won't let that devil ever ever win this round naw
And though I stray for you, you know that my heart is good
And I know I ain't exactly living how I probly should
And I'm a try to act better like it's Hollywood

Niggas congratulate me I just tell them God is good
God is good


(Chorus)
What am I here for?
I'm a man so I cannot let them tears fall?
But understand trynna get my head clear ya'll this shit is on my mind
Asking for the lord to show me all my signs
Show me something
Cause I'm trynna find something
I'm lost can u show me something
I'm lost can you show me something


(Verse 3)
Yea, huh, yea my niggas drug dealing in the trap
I'm tellin you wake up nigga it's a trap

You set up and to them young mothers fed up
Just keep your head up
Don't let up
You fall you get up

You make your bed up that you sleep in
Fake rappers ain't practicing what dey preaching
Hey tell you hit the trap while they relaxing on the beach and
I'm here to spit the facts
A nigga backflipped off the deep end

I smell this shit for what it is
Not kells but I love the kids
And so I make the song to let em know that they important
Cause them racist teachers couldn't give a fuck bout wat they score is

So they try to get them hands up on them grants like horace
Now slanging for you knoe it cops is knocking they got warrants
Damn!, uh, and how he running for it
Damn!, yea and now the cops is running for him damn!
And now he finally slowing down
Hands behind your head, lay down on the ground, nigga


(Chorus)
What am I here for?
I'm a man so I cannot let them tears fall
But understand trynna get my head clear ya'll this shit is on my mind
Asking for the lord to show me all my signs
Show me something
Cause I'm trynna find something
I'm lost can u show me something
