Beleaf - Explain lyrics

[Intro] Uh, hello Mr. Melanin This is Dr. Steve Maddix I'm just calling to let you know all the tests were negative And you are in perfect health So there is really no good reason why this album is not out yet So I expect it to be out as soon as possible And a free copy You can bring it when you come back in the office for your next checkup Peace [Verse 1: Ruslan] I don't wanna hear no more trap beats Feel like I'm racing with the groove like a track meet Even though I've trained like an athlete So you don't wanna catch a 90's fade like it's Blackstreet Homie that's deep Did Kendrick tell you Backstreet Boys to go ahead and take a backseat Freestyle, meanwhile I continue lasting I continue gaining weight even when I'm fasting Wait, I don't know if that's something to brag about Haters in the house, Dream Junkies went and ran 'em out I ain't rich or famous but I can say that it's panning out And I don't really care if Don Cannon got his cannon out See I don't need a co-sign Especially when the average consumer seems so blind And what's the point of getting rich if then you have no time I'm on my way to getting both, and life feels so fine Oh my, God We did it on His terms and did it on our clock Did it the way we wanted while these other rappers watched While they keep playing they Barts, I don't mean to sound harsh But it seems like very few were really speaking from they're hearts [Hook: Ruslan & John Givez] When the debt seems stacked and the money feels low And my corner saying yes but the crowd is yelling no And they don't mean to offend me I get it the odds are against me When the debt seems stacked and the money feels low And my corner saying yes but the crowd is yelling no And they don't mean to offend me I get it the odds are against me But I don't need to explain myself No, I don't need to explain myself I don't need to explain myself No, I don't need to explain myself to you [Verse 2: Beleaf] I desired the fan, this lyrical fire, the flame The blaze the torch to 'em, wildfire uncontained I'm more than human I am restrained by the flesh, the blood, the bones, organs and veins Still I refrain from using profane speech And setting unrealistic goals I can't reach There's a thorn in my flesh, it feels like a beast And I would meet my d**h if only you would increase Let me be the deceased, I fall into a grave Into a pit, into a ditch, into a casket I behave just like a slave, freedom seemed unsafe But I rather felt the security than to need faith And I'd rather be the minority then to make haste I put beats to d**h and resurrect the great Gallica in a fruit, bite wasn't more than a grape Put a mallet to your mind, watch the lies dissipate This a pace I embrace, peek-a-boo hide your face Hide your kids, hide your wife Watch your legacy erase I put my family first And punctuate the face of anybody offended with a freaking exclama-tion Point taken, chewing on turkey bacon and avocado I'm part of the beard gang bravado What's worse, being full of it or just as hollow? I'm elevating my mind but not higher like Colorado Come on [Hook: Beleaf and John Givez] [Verse 3: John Givez] And man I swear these boys were true poppers Hanging and slanging on the corner dressed in blue Johnny law got involved, I was only just a youth And then it hit me, I gotta find a better way to move Met up with some dudes named Beleaf the other Ru Brang me around the church and introduced me to the crew Fell in love with the Lord, He told me I was something new And then I knew immediately what I was supposed to do Now I'm standing on stages Tryna encourage all of my brothers that's trapped in mazes The truth really I'm amazed at the way that the fable lays on my shoulder And when I hit the pearly gates I'm gonna praise Him for opening up the doors See the story may not be yours but the chorus that was in-store Is a portion of plenty more than I ever had thought before Pray to God that my mother be blessed for many moons All the nights she stayed up wondering what I was doing But now she know where I'm goin', my granny had called it yonder Headed up heavens highway to see my Father I'm taking my people farther with this Though at times a broken spirit make it harder for this I'm caught up by when... [Hook: John Givez]
