Listen
I only know spending time away
I only know the truth is spoken
Best when brutally, so honestly

I let you know you set the standards
Lyrically for me
One single middle finger saying
Raise it up. My speech will always be free
Like Martin Luther King, you had meaning to me
Single handedly, saving music starving industry
A hip hop legend with skin like invisible ink
Like even though he was whiter than me
He was the first to be colorless
Speaking for all of us

And you let us into your family
Mother, father, brother, sister, wife, daughter
Damn, right in front of me.
Just when I miss my daughter desperately,
Your mockingbird put dents in me
While touring press, and reliving my song "Hate Me"
I was losing custody

I never even saw that shit
How she played me, and planned and saw it fit
To turn the trick that financially she would benefit
My first and probably only Billboard hit
Was going to pay for my two-year-old's college
I should have hid that shit
So she couldn't spend that shit
It took twenty years of working just to earn that shit
Now word for word I've listened, heard, and I'm done. Done.

No,you don't know. You act like you believe it
That you're in control
It's just your legal system though
Ya, they don't think about it
No, they don't care about it
Now every man in America take back your control

No,you don't know. You act like you believe it
That you're in control
It's just your legal system though
Ya, they don't think about it
No, they don't care about it
Now every man in America take back your control

So I kept my business quiet just like my lawyer said
And I tried to focus all my anger in my work instead
I was succeeding and self-reliant, but inside my soul is dead
I had to be the sole provider, but not allowed to be the dad
Literally they took her from me
Legally, they did, they did
But I'm not a fucking book, so fuck your book in Lincoln I said

Ya fuck that judge, fuck the county, fuck your family too.
Ya, fuck everybody that took my baby girl, Blue

And I'm way too strong, I work my ass off all day long
And I'm gone for months at a time,
When you keep sitting there, and lying, bitching, "come back home."
I hate you, hate you, god!
And then you came back home,
And filed for another fucking divorce

I'm sick of trying
I'm sick of you instead 'cause
I'm not sick, dope in my head

Any other man in America can get screwed just like me. Ya.

No,you don't know. You act like you believe it
That you're in control
It's just your legal system though
Ya, they don't think about it
No, they don't care about it
Now every man in America take back your control

No,you don't know. You act like you believe it
That you're in control
It's just your legal system though
Ya, they don't think about it
No, they don't care about it
Now every man in America take back your control

You don't understand, probably never will
Listen slowly, I'll let you know the deal
Lying ass, play the judge with your crying ass
Had your nose wide open when you saw the cash
Grimy bitch, growing tired of you trying shit
Women run the courts, men provide the chips
Well, eat up, bitch. 'Til you've had enough, bitch
But take my kids, you can kiss both my nuts, bitch

Telling lies, 'cause daddy's always on the road
But you're the one fucking like a groupie at a show
Money hungry, so you try and take my youngest from me
You a dummy, honey. I'll chase you cross the country
Bring your drama to your mama, and your mama's mama.
Cause we all know, you're chasing after commas
A couple checks, a few houses, and Gucci blouses
You changing dicks like you changing outfits

Constitution's now-a-days got the daddy's losers
While fathers getting fucked like prostitution

You don't know. You act like you believe it
That you're in control
Well, it's just your legal system though
No, they don't think about it
No, they don't care about it
Every man in America can lose control

You don't know. You act like you believe it
That you're in control
It's just your legal system though
Ya, they don't think about it
No, they don't care about it
Now every man in America take back your control

No,you don't know. You act like you believe it
That you're in control
It's just your legal system though
Ya, they don't think about it
No, they don't care about it
Now every man in America take back your control

No,you don't know. You act like you believe it
That you're in control
It's just your legal system though
Ya, they don't think about it
No, they don't care about it
Now every man in America take back your control
