A Tale of 2 Citiez - J. Cole

Since a youngin' always dreamed of gettin' rich
Look at me my n_gga
Fantasize about a white picket fence
With some trees my n_gga
Used to want a pathfinder with some tints
That's all I need my n_gga
Throw some 20's on that b_tch and get it wrenched
But now I see my n_gga
That the worlds a lot bigger ever since
Picked up the paper and they say my n_gga Eddie caught a body, I'm convinced
Anybody is a killer, all you gotta do is push 'em to the limps
F_ck being timid in the Civic
Politicin' with the pushers and the pimps
I'm tryna write a story, can I get a glimpse?
Yeah can I get a glimpse?

Last night I had a bad dream
That I was trapped in this city
Then I asked is that really such a bad thing?
They robbin' n_ggas on the daily
Keep on blamin' n_gga that ain't never had things
Guess not, last night they pulled up on my n_gga at the light like
Uh, nice watch, run it
Hands in the air now, hands in the air, run it
Hands in the air now, hands in the air, run it
Hands in the air now, hands in the air
Hands in the air now, hands in the air

Small town n_gga Hollywood dreams
I know that everything that glitters ain't gold
I know the sh_ts not always good as it seems
But tell me till you get it how could you know
How could you know? How could you know?

Listen up I'm about to go and get rich
F_ck with me my n_gga
We gonna slug around the Ville and hit a lick
Cop some tree my n_gga
And some powder, bag it up and make it flip
You gon' see my n_gga
One day we gon' graduate and cop a brick
And thats the key my n_gga
Listen up I'm bout to go and get rich
Stand back and watch if you want to n_gga
Me I want my pockets fat, badder b_tch
Tired of seein' n_ggas flaunt, I wanna flaunt too n_gga
Watch some rollers in the f_ckin' Crown Vic
Tryna lock a n_gga up, thats what they won't do n_gga
Wanna know a funny thing about this sh_t?
Even if you let em' kill your dream it'll haunt you n_gga

Last night I had a bad dream
That I was trapped in this city
Then I asked is that really such a bad thing?
I look around like do you wanna be another n_gga, that ain't never had things?
Guess not, last night we pulled up on a n_gga at the light like
Uh, nice watch, run it
Hands in the air now, hands in the air, run it
Hands in the air now, hands in the air, run it
Hands in the air now, hands in the air
Hands in the air now, hands in the air

Father forgive me for me, childish ways
I look outside and all the clouds are gray
I need your hands to take me, miles away
Your wish is my command, my command, my command, but
Before you go I've got to, warn you now
Whatever goes up surely, must come down
And you get your piece but no peace, won't be found
So why just take me man, take me man, take me man
Your wish is my command, my command, my command
