"The Lie" lyrics from "ameriBLACKKK"

written by L. Marshall for Heat Lamp Music (ASCAP)

Does it love me / Or love me not / I done played the fool / For the very last time / My pastor says be strong / I can't keep holding on / To living a lie

Verse 1:
They fake it / Till you make it / Success is not regretted / But when people make it / It's prosthetic / Lying to self / Becomes natural / For the wrong reasons / Cheating Jesus / For devil's hand outs / They still reaching / What factual? / Is bae's attitude / Connected to / A solar system / She on a yoga mat / High on plants / Stretched for wisdom / Popped a Xanny / Deserted family / Party girl statistic / Implanted lies / About her image / Gives a different picture / Paranoid politicians / Create panic / For the right to bear arms / Guns up everyone's sleeve / How much freedom is ours? / If you in the gym listening / You best believe in these bars / Criminalize my history / Had me guilty as charged / Until I unveiled the mystery / About my story from God / I'm valuable because of Him / Money talk is mirage / Ask Vegas / Nothing sacred / You see it / But you rubbing your eyes / Blinded inside / Loving a lie


Verse #2:
Please God / Protect this unborn child of mine / To lead the nation / To the Truth / In a world of lies / The CIA / Can't deny / Cooking cocaine pies / Till everyone in LA / Was strung out / Pulling knives / For a slice of the American cheese / Scranton Judge doing life / Because of American greed / This is business as usual / Destroy a man / While he juvenile / Now he on parole / Burning dabs / Writing raps / Another high high kid / Living in low standards / More alert than Amber / Forever lost / Searching for dad / In the fam / Foolish pride is scam / Murderers test life / When prison's the exam / Missing your son's birthday celebrations / To protect a reputation / For a block / You don't own / 4th grader thoughts / Shouldn't school a man's that's grown / You see it / But you rubbing your eyes / Blinded inside / Loving a lie


Verse #3:
The road to the upper class / Did you finish the course? / Entry-level job / Where's a choice / When student loans / Enslave the poor / At UCLA / Cooking Ramen Noodles / With tour de force / Freshmen / Bounced credit cards / Debt is hefty / Sallie Mae talking trash / To box you in / You fighting right / They want an advantage / Going lefty / Continue to write lines full of truth / Over these n*ggas / Yelling death speech / Over trap beats / In the hood / It's body over brains / For kids to entertain / Dreams of being a baller / More than espy / That's lie / No disrespect / To the OG Iverson / He wasn't the answer / Jersey sales / Don't stop the ghetto / From being in handcuffs / Cross dressing boys congratulated / Society says it's elevated / Girls mad / When they have to man up / No comedy / It's time to stand up / You see it / But you rubbing your eyes / Blinded inside / Loving a lie
