Alright Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Alls my life I has to fight, n***a
Alls my life I
Hard times like God
Bad trips like "God!"
Nazareth, I'm f****d up, homie, you f****d up
But if God got us we then gon' be alright
Verse 2
N***a, we gon' be alright
N***a, we gon' be alright
We gon' be alright
Do you hear me, do you feel me, we gon' be alright
N***a, we gon' be alright
Huh, we gon' be alright
N***a, we gon' be alright
Do you hear me, do you feel me, we gon' be alright
Verse 3
Uh, and when I wake up
I recognize you're lookin' at me for the pay cut
Behind my side we lookin' at you from the face down
What Mac-11 even boom with the bass down
Schemin' and let me tell you bout my life
Painkillers only put me in the twilight
What pretty p***y and Benjamin is the highlight
Now tell my mama I love her but this what I like
Lord knows, twenty of 'em in my Chevy
Tell 'em all to come and get me, reapin' everything I sow
So my karma come and Heaven no preliminary hearing
So my record and my motherf*****g gang stand in silence for the record, uh
Tell the world I know it's too late
Boys and girls, I think I gone cray
Try and decide my vices all day
Won't you please believe when I say
Verse 4
When you know, we been hurt, been down before, n***a
When my pride was low, lookin' at the world like, where do we go, n***a?
And we hate Popo, wanna kill us dead in the street for sure, n***a
I'm at the preacher's door
My knees gettin' weak and my gun might blow but we gon' be alright
Verse 5
N***a, we gon' be alright
N***a, we gon' be alright
We gon' be alright
Do you hear me, do you feel me, we gon' be alright
N***a, we gon' be alright
Huh, we gon' be alright
N***a, we gon' be alright
Do you hear me, do you feel me, we gon' be alright
Verse 6
What you want, your house, your car
Forty acres and a mule, a piano, a guitar?
Anything, see my name is Lucy, I'm your dog
Motherf****r you can live at the mall
I can see the evil, I can tell it, I know when it's illegal
I don't think about it, I deposit every other zero
Thinkin' of my partner put the candy, paint it on the regal
Diggin' in my pocket ain't a profit, big enough to feed you
Everyday my logic, get another dollar just to keep you
In the presence of your chico, ah
I don't talk about it, be about it, everyday I see cool
If I got it then you know you got it, Heaven, I can reach you
Pet dog, pet dog, pet dog, my dog that's all
Pick back and chat I shut the back for y'all
I rap, I'm black, on track so rest assured
My rights, my wrongs are right till I'm right with God
Verse 7
When you know, we been hurt, been down before, n***a
When my pride was low, lookin' at the world like, where do we go, n***a?
And we hate Popo, wanna kill us dead in the street for sure, n***a
I'm at the preacher's door
My knees gettin' weak and my gun might blow but we gon' be alright
Verse 8
N***a, we gon' be alright
N***a, we gon' be alright
We gon' be alright
Do you hear me, do you feel me, we gon' be alright
N***a, we gon' be alright
Huh, we gon' be alright
N***a, we gon' be alright
Do you hear me, do you feel me, we gon' be alright
Verse 9
I keep my head up high
I cross my heart and hope to die
Lovin' me is complicated
Too afraid, a lot of changes
I'm alright and you're a favorite
Dark nights in my prayers
