J. COLE - Tears For ODB

rate me

Yeah, straight up, hey

Tears for ODB, drug induced poetry

What's the use?

Strung out from that drug abuse

80s baby, so I know my pops was getting high

In the 90s, me and mama barely getting by

2000s I was concentrating more on getting fly

Getting bitches, getting rich to get the shit I couldn't buy

You know the story, you know my allegory

I was sent from Heaven with a set of horns,

They'd better warn y'all!

I'm here for more than just to kick some witty metaphors, dawg

This more of the type of shit you spit to set a war off

Cause niggas be poor, get money, they still don't know

Why the fuck they can't cop a house,

The system meant to lock us out

But I'm knocking down the door, strapped up with a four-four

Robin Hood, shit and yeah, I'm hood rich

That's good enough to stay in new kicks and a good...

Get good head from a good bitch,

I give two shits, I'mma tell you straight up:

Hook:

Hey straight up, straight up!

Ain't any chance I'mma take it

Rather die before I fake it

They say life is what you make it, bitch

But I'm just tryna make it

Straight up, straight up, straight up!

Ain't any chance I'mma take it

Rather die before I fake it

They say life is what you make it, bitch!

But I'm just tryna make it

Straight up!

Lord, have mercy on my soul!

What I've done and what I've seen

My life has tumbled into that which only you could intervene

I put my heart in senseless things

Money, bitches and street shit

Fascinated by beef, sad to say I won't be shit.

Grew up in this bitch without a pot to piss, no toilet

How ironic, I took a lot of shit,

Like a bottom bitch or a model chick,

High off coke, they locking sons up for less,

I don't care how y'all cope!

But yet I still peddle this dope and these pills

I'll never know how sitting comfy on that... seat feels

More than likely be on "most wanted" posters, we steal

Holding on to old dreams of being... be real

We the forgotten souls, bottom of the totem poles

Left for dead, some niggas fled,

People said they sold their souls

I just think they found a better way,

Lord knows I never pray

But sometimes I be wishing I could levitate,

I'll take it straight up!

Hook:

Hey straight up, straight up!

Ain't any chance I'mma take it

Rather die before I fake it

They say life is what you make it, bitch

But I'm just tryna make it

Straight up, straight up, straight up!

Ain't any chance I'mma take it

Rather die before I fake it

They say life is what you make it, bitch!

But I'm just tryna make it

Straight up!

[Outro:]

Yeah, straight up!

My niggas' gotta learn something

It's 2012 nigga

And I still got a lot to say

You all know...

A nigga never know

Real!
