It don't feel right, it don't feel right
I don't feel, I don't feel, I can't feel it no more
It don't feel right, it don't feel right
I don't feel, I don't feel, I can't feel it no more
Seems to me nowadays things have changed
I don't know if I feel the same

Yo, in the land of the unseen hand and hold trouble
Theorize your game, it's difficult to roll a double
The struggle ain't right up in your face, it's more subtle
But it's still comin' across like the bridge and tunnel vision

I try to school these bucks but they don't wanna listen
That's the reason the system makin' its paper from the prison
And that's the reason we livin' where they don't wanna visit
Where the dope slang and keep swayin' like Sonny Liston

The money missin' and there's mouths to feed
Yet the brain kickin', thinkin' of a thousand things
Remember back in the days when the kitchen had eggs
And pancakes, thicken and greens and Kool Aid

When the fridgerator naked then the cupboard is bare
People got to strip naked, stick em up in the air
Wasn't lies when they told you wasn't nothin' to fear
Somethin' don't feel right out here, know I'm sayin'? Check it out

It don't feel right, it don't feel right
I don't feel, I don't feel, I can't feel it no more
It don't feel right, it don't feel right
I don't feel, I don't feel, I can't feel it no more
Seems to me nowadays things have changed
I don't know if I feel the same

Look, my eyes open cause I'm really a rocksmith
And when inviting me thoughts, I'm really unboxin'
My main adversary in this silly concoction
Freeze your face like bosilium toxin

If you ain't tryin' to get popped, then give me a option
Helicopters choppin' from Philly to Compton
The Jones is the richest since the Smiths and the Johnson's
If you ain't sayin' nothin', you a system's accomplice

It should play with your conscience, do away with the nonsense
I'm overseeing anything within my circumference
This ain't a press junket, I ain't seekin' responses
I stand where the people got the heat in they pocket

You mesmerized by the calm nonchalantness
I spit a dart, rub on some John Hitchcock shit
If you ain't speakin' your life, your rhyme's adopted
If it don't feel right, then stop it, you know I'm sayin'?

It don't feel right, it don't feel right
I don't feel, I don't feel, I can't feel it no more
It don't feel right, it don't feel right
I don't feel, I don't feel, I don't feel it no more
Things don't feel right over here
Lately I ain't been seein' clear

It don't feel right, it don't feel right
I don't feel, I don't feel, I can't feel it no more
It don't feel right, it don't feel right
I don't feel, I don't feel, I can't feel it no more
Seems to me nowadays things have changed
I don't know if I feel the same

Yo, field you work in, weapon producin'
Natural disaster got the planet in a panic
We all gots to make that livin'
Sex, drugs, murder, politics and religion

Forms of hustlin', watch who you put all your trust in
Worldwide, we coincide with who sufferin'
Who never had shit and ain't got nothin'
But most strugglin' and make you wanna run up in the ma' fuckin'

With hots on for a piece of the cake back
I can't work for it, I can certainly take that
I'm fired up, thinkin' about the payback, except
You fuck around and be a enemy of the state, black

Ill, but that'd be too real for TV
It's crazy when you too real to be free
If you ain't got no paper then steal this CD
Listen man, I'll let you know how it feel to be me, it don't feel

It don't feel right, it don't feel right
I don't feel, I don't feel, I can't feel it no more
It don't feel right, it don't feel right
I don't feel, I don't feel, I don't feel it no more
Things don't feel right over here
Lately I ain't been seein' clear

It don't feel right, it don't feel right
I don't feel, I don't feel, I can't feel it no more
It don't feel right, it don't feel right
I don't feel, I don't feel, I can't feel it no more
Seems to me nowadays things have changed
I don't know if I feel the same
