J. Cole - Be Free (Live on The Late Show with David Letterman) lyrics

[Verse 1] And I'm in denial And it don't take no X-Ray to see right through my smile I know, I be on the go And there ain't no drink out there that can numb my soul Oh no [Hook] All we wanna do is take the chains off All we wanna do is break the chains off All we wanna do is be free All we wanna do is be free All we wanna do is take the chains off All we wanna do is break the chains off All we wanna do is be free All we wanna do is be free [Verse 2] Can you tell me why Every time I step outside I see my people die I'm lettin' you know That there ain't no gun they make that can k** my soul Oh no [Hook] All we wanna do is take the chains off All we wanna do is break the chains off All we wanna do is be free All we wanna do is be free All we wanna do is take the chains off All we wanna do is break the chains off All we wanna do is be free All we wanna do is be free [Verse 3] Forget this chain, cause this ain't me Though I'm eternally grateful to Jay Z We so elated, we celebrated like Obama waited until his last day in office to tell the nation, brothers is getting their reparations, hey A man can dream, can't he? No disrespect, in terms of change I haven't seen any Maybe he had good intentions but was stifled by the system And was sad to learn that he actually couldn't bring any That's what I get for thinking, this world is fair They let a brother steer the ship And never told him that the ship was sinkin' But I got other sh** to think about, like my bank account Forget that watch, you paid too much for it You 'ought to be ashamed When brothers back home be dreading when the seasons change Cause they ain't got no heat and they ain't got no AC WalMart distribution fired my homie, he just had a baby You wonder why it's been so many B and E's lately While brothers from the hood shooting like this is TNT lately And since all the ballers leaving college early I turn on the TV and don't see no brothers with degrees lately [Bridge] Are we all alone, fighting on our own Please give me a chance, I don't wanna dance Somethings got me down, I will stand my ground Don't just stand around, don't just stand around [Outro] All we wanna do is be free All we wanna do is be free All we wanna do is take the chains off...
