Kendrick Lamar - untitled 08 (09.06.2014) lyrics

Why so sad? Walking around with them blue faces She said I'm down on my luck And it's something I gotta have Blue faces I hit the bank today and told them color me bad Blue faces Get that new money, and it's breaking me down honey Two tears in the bucket I cry with you But I could never lie with you I could never afford not to afford I could never put my plans to the side with you I could never see a red light Like a deer with a headlight I freeze up when I re-up See I barely have patience And you're relating Only the moment to complete us Why you hate to work for it? The reason I never went to work for it See a nine to five was so jive turkey But when Thanksgiving came that check didn't hurt me You plead the fifth I read the fifth amendment We both criminals with bad intentions They say time heals all But if I can shortcut My success, Corvettes by tomorrow Why so sad? Walking around with them blue faces She said I'm down on my luck And it's something I gotta have Blue faces I hit the bank today and told them color me bad Blue faces Get that new money, and it's breaking me down honey My home girl got a credit card scam She got a scholarship to college but she don't give a damn Intuition she got a broke b**h wishin' She tell me this on the phone with the noodles in the pan I know you, woman, I console you, woman You feel like the universe owes you, woman Oh the anticipation, of hoping you could make it b**hes don't prosper chasing education But you're talented, and can't handle it And your homegirls can't be your manager 365 times four, plus more If yan't get it right, tell me, do you got the stamina? But sh**, ain't no money like fast money Even today I'm considered a crash dummy A rapper chasing stardom, how can I fast forward? My accolades better than all them Why so sad? Walking around with them blue faces She said I'm down on my luck And it's something I gotta have Blue faces I hit the bank today and told them color me bad Blue faces Get that new money, and it's breaking me down honey I wrote this song looking at a broke home baby You know the poverty stricken the little broke boy and babies Somebody yell "Kendrick American, they sho' is crazy" And I said "why?" Then he looked me in the eye, and said "n***a you f**ed up" You're banking on good luck, you wishing for miracles You never been through sh**, you're crying hysterical You settle for everything, complain about everything You say you sold crack, my world amphetamine Your projects ain't sh**, I live in a hut b**h I'm living to keep warm, you living to pay rent I paid my way through, praying to Allah You played your way through, by living in sci-fi Bullsh**ting yourself, you talking to strangers Same thing goes for the ones you came with When y'all came on the boat looking for hope And all you can say is that you're looking for dope These days ain't no compromise And your pain ain't mines half the time A brand new excuse ain't sh** to me b**h I made my moves, with shackled feet Cape Town In today's day and age we practice the self pity of taking the easy way out You wait on them, him and her But when a blessing takes long, that's when you go wrong You selfish motherf**er Why so sad? Walking around with them blue faces She said I'm down on my luck And it's something I gotta have Blue faces I hit the bank today and told them color me bad Blue faces Get that new money, and it's breaking me down honey Pimp pimp hooray
