[Verse 1: Ab-Soul] What's your life about, enlighten me Is you gonna live on your knees, or die on your feet Fire in the street, fire in my swisher Fire in between the two legs of your little sister Just get a sip of this elixir, before they crop us out of the picture I've never seen a crop circle but I've seen a cop circled the block I puff squares, but I swear one day I'mma stop my nerves itch On the brink of my career, while my peers struggle for employment Can you hear these screams (Uncle Sam ain't no kin to me) One two, three four grams and a fifth of Hennessey A bad b**h, f** the penitentiary [Bridge] Section 80's babies, blame Ronald Reagan, we raising hell [Verse 2: Ab-Soul] Lord forbid, the homie got wet, so we trying to soak it in The president is black, but you can't vote for skin, you vote for the better man Come to our show you can see the diversity Unify people they going to peep it universally We might not change the world But we going to manipulate it, I hope you participating Ayo Dot, won't you let these cats know We knew we'd be here, like back in 04' Started HiiiPower because our generation Needed a generator and a system, meant to disintegrate us And all we do is a**ist them We're not victors, we're victims The bigger picture hasn't developed yet Like what if Keisha were celibate What if Tammy came across a real man Who didn't play games like children My n***a cheated on his girlfriend with his girlfriend's girlfriend Let the world end And everybody tripping off 2012 And the extraterrestrial presence as well (Odd Future's aight) But our future is not, that Martial law sh** dropped, we gonna all get got So keep that question mark on your face Eat that fast food, and use that flouride toothpaste Hide your feelings from the public Work a little nine to five, don't forget to pay your tithes And to thank God you're alive (HiiiPower) And on another note, we focused like the Hubble Telescope, Soul [Hook] Life is a traffic jam, life is a traffic jam Life is a traffic jam, life is a traffic jam Life is a traffic jam, life is a traffic jam Life is a traffic jam, life is a traffic jam Life is a traffic jam [Verse 3: Kendrick Lamar & Ab-Soul] I wrote this because I was ordered to People say I speak for generation Y Why lie, I do, Section 80 Your son will play me if the radio won't Daughters that just turn one to twenty one listen to Kendrick For instance What's your life about, enlighten me Is you gonna live on your knees, or die on your feet Take out that student loan, and pay off your college degree And do exactly what you see on TV True story, hmm Can you repeat that for me, Soul? What's your life about, enlighten me Is you gonna live on your knees, or die on your feet Is you gonna plead the fifth, or sound the horn The time is now my child, come on See a lot of y'all don't understand Kendrick Lamar Because you wonder how I could talk about money, hoes, clothes God and history all in the same sentence You know what all the things have in common Only half of the truth, if you tell it See I've spent twenty three years on the earth searching for answers 'til one day I realized I had to come up with my own I'm not on the outside looking in, I'm not on the inside looking out I'm in the dead f**ing center, looking around You've ever seen a newborn baby k** a grown man That's an an*logy for the way the world make me react My innocence been dead So the next time I talk about money, hoes, clothes God and history all in the same sentence Just know I meant it, and you felt it cause you too are searching for answers I'm not the next pop star, I'm not the next socially aware rapper I am a human mothaf**in' being, over dope a** instrumentation Kendrick Lamar Now f** 'em up Terrace (Soul!) [Outro] I watch this fire that we're gathered around And see that it burns similar to the fire that's inside you Section.80 Section.80 babies A generation of bliss and disobedience Know they can't control us Know they can't control you Know they can't control us But we can control each other We build our own world If you don't leave with nothing else tonight, you will leave with knowing yourself You will leave knowing that you represent something thats bigger than all of us Our family Heart, honor and respect This is you, this is me And we are HiiiPower
