[Goo Goo Dolls Sample]
Don't want the world to see me
Don't think that they'd understand
Everything's meant to be broken
Want you to know who I am


[Lil B - Verse 1]
My lifetime came from struggle
All I've seen is what I follow

My skin color, automatic transaction
I'm already classified, no second chance

Taught to feel nappy hair, little grade
Why can't I sag when it's just a style
Little beard, black hoodie, and I'm all good
People judge before they even know me

Stare at me, don't know I'm lonely
Outside's from these stares from police
And I get the bad rep because another man that just looks like me

Think life's a movie like Spike Lee
Too cool like Ice T

Yeah, I move with Life's Peace, and he move with the gun piece
So there's no peace
I gotta go to the hood, all I see is
Divided, the freshest schizophrenics
Men pimping women, people losing vision
Given choices before she started living
I hate myself

[Lil B - Hook]
I see myself in the mirror, but I don't see nothing
If you understand what I'm seeing please tell me something
When you black, the media make you wonder why
I just need my history, because I hate myself


[Lil B - Verse 2]
It makes me sad to see pimping like I'm at a battle with my surroundings
Everybody do it, but not really

And I couldn't imagine my momma
Universal knowledge is karma
I see young girls hanging off the corner
And they searching for love in the wrong space
Gave her mind to a pimp, now he's changing faces

Sometimes I just wish I could trade places
I hate myself for being taught the rules of the hood
Which don't matter, no respect and no love
Ain't got jail for the real thugs

And I'm sorry to all the innocent in prison
You get a second chance when you free or in heaven

I promise if you really love and you watch your steps
Respect everybody, man you will get blessed

Get your point across without violence
The black dying by the gun, I'm tired of crying

I hate myself

[Lil B - Hook 2]
For real man, this been in my heart for a long time
And if you understand, please tell me something
When you black, the media make you wonder why

[Lil B - Verse 3]
I'm ready to give up my old thoughts
I'mma move past what I saw
I'mma do what I want and be happy

I'm not gon' rob or kill to survive
Everything I've seen was a lie
I'm not ready to die, I love myself
I said...
Everything that I've seen was a lie
I'm not ready to die, I love myself

Break that mental

You know we are free now man
Break that, uh, mental blockage
Don't think too hard, free your mind
