too touchy

Location

you build me up just to tear me down
Society's pressure like a car in a compound
Society maneuvers around things
Things they don't wanna discuss
But rappers can talk about thug life and rolling up
So maybe its just me but I can't quite comprehend how you can go and deliver and produce nonsense but I can't talk about real life things little baby boy brought up into this world little baby boy stressing cuz his father is gone
Drug dealing no ambition life not spent
Because the industry produced nonsense
But OK we can't blame it on the media
Parents need to watch what your kids put in front of them
But tell me this if I was watching TV since three
The only thing a black man portrays
Is the next big thing or NBA or selling rocks on these streets just to maintain
How day you raise up a main with the mindset to
Chase your dreams you can do anything
But statistics says other wise
Half of my brothers will be dead it behind bar
And don't lie
The only time we really get together is when someone like Zimmerman goes and locks his trigger?
HOW MANY BROTHERS HAVE TO DIE
HOW MANY MOTHERS HAVE TO CRY
HOW MANY MINDS PERSUADED
HOW MANY LIFE HAVE BEEN TAKEN
Because the topic was too touchy to discuss it?..
And my sisters we're not making it to see you guys walk around
A heartache continue braking
Mind trapped building insecurities
When asked your goals you tell me you don't know
Mother gives her last for you but u don't understand
Why everybody see the best in you?
We got potential to be doctors and nurses but the only thing we care about is perfecting are twerking?
Come on ! Someone testify
BECAUSE A CHILDA RAISING A CHILD
AND WERE COLLEGE DROPOUTS
WHILE WERE ROLLING UP LOUD
CLEAVGE HANGING OUT JUST TO STAND OUT
You have to wonder how this all could been avoided but the topic was just to touchy to discuss it...
You pray to god hoping for a brighter day
You don't wanna deal so you pray he takes your breath away
When you wake up you check" the book"
Hates comments calling u inhuman
A clear path to hell unwanted is all I'll ever be?
Peer pressure you can't deal ask god to take away the things that you feel
Stop going to church cause people not keeping it real
And when you ask the plaster for clarity
He looks at you like eww
Keep it locked up because who even cares
And it gets to a point when's there's no fighting the tears
Now everybody wanna R.I.P my nigga
And if I would of know your struggle I would of stood with you
HOW MANY LIFES HAVE BEEN ENDED
HOW MANY COMMENTS HAVE AFFECTED
HOW MUCH CAN ONE TAKE TURNED AWAY AND REJECTED ONLY HOPING FOR A BRIGHTER DAY
TURNED AWAY SIMPLY BECAUSE A LABLE
"GAY"
told god couldn't love them because the things he/she felt and the wanted to reach out but nobody had the time of day to ask how there doing and to say that its OK because the topic was just to touchy to discuss it.
HEAR HUMANITY'S CRIES
STAND UP NOW AND TAKE TGE BLINDFOLDS FROM YOUR EYES
UNLOCK WHATS INSIDE
BECAUSE IF NOT THE OUR GENERATION WILL NEVER SURVIVE
COME ON AND HELP ONE ANOTHER
THERE NO TIME FOR HATE
NO TIME TO DISCRIMINATE

BECAUSE EACH SECOND
EACH MINUTE
WERE LOSING A LOVE ONE
BECAUSE U SAID

A TOPIC WAS TOO TOUCHY TO DISCUSS IT
