Look, I just shed tears homie and now I ain't too proud to admit it Just seen my father for the first time in a minute And when I say a minute I mean years man Damn, a whale could have swam in them tears fam 'Cause as I left them I reflected on my younger days When it was just me and my brother and my mother played Father, 'cause no other man bothered Not even my biological, it never seemed logical But I accepted it 'cause I ain't know no better Thought I was brighter than a Polo sweater No pops was like Martin with no Coretta So many things you could have told me And saved me the trouble of lettin' my mistakes show me I feel like you barely know me And that's a shame 'cause our last name is the same That blood type flowin' through our veins is the same My mama left you and maybe your anger's to blame But that's no excuse, only you and God know the truth And why you only call monthly, barely ever saw me Spend some summers with you and played with my cousin Maury Maybe I should be tellin' you fuck you 'cause you selfish But I want a father so bad, I can't help But break down, I break down Can't help but break down I break down I never thought I'd see my mama on that shit man It's fuckin' with her body, now she sick damn I wanted a big house with the white picket fence and a pool Who would have ever thought that it would come to this, man? Quicksand is what this life feel like That shit these rappers kick is nothin' like real life You made a milli off of servin' hard white, yeah right My mama tell you what addicted to that pipe feel like Stupid niggas, I heard the cops be shootin' niggas I swear to God, wish I could bullet proof my niggas Can't get no jobs, but they still recruitin' niggas We tryna stand tall when it gets to crucial niggas Break down We break down, we break down, we break down He's servin' time, locked down And she don't want nobody to know, His daughter twenty five pounds By the time he get out, she gon' be four Now will his girl stay down? Ain't no doubt, she love him yeah that's fo sho But temptation stays 'round And if she strayed, how could he ever know? Never know and so, she goes to the club on the weekend A little freakin', but them niggas holla But she never speakin', but tonight I see the devil creepin' 'Cause she been lonely, she ain't felt a man in seven seasons Damn! She do the best that she can Her mama tellin' her to find another man She college educated with a felon boyfriend That's what she thinkin' tonight Maybe she's right, but please Stay down mama! Gotta be strong, don't break down mama! Please, stay down mama! Gotta be strong, don't break down mama! Don't break down, don't break down, don't break down, don't break down
