I'm afraid That I can't grab it all with my bare hands That's how it shoulda been And I'm ashamed Cuz I can't tell my daughter where I've been Cuz I'm her Superman Verse 1: And I've been kinda... Really trippin Kinda tempted to kick it My Lois Lane with me I'm grateful she's here with me I've been Cold-blooded Torn, rough, and rugged I try to keep it clean But now my hands are so dirty They like Its a bird, its a plane Its Superman, drunk, and he ain't focused on a thang I gotta heart of gold, my intentions are the same But my actions and mistakes will make you question everythang And i was taught to Love my neighbor like my relative Then my Neighbor broke into my mama crib I'm numb, I can't speak Stressed, I can't eat Tryna get the ground back under my feet I'm bout to go up (yeah) Let the ones in need know whats up (yeah) The talk is low, the truth is out But going out to save the day is sounding stupid now I wanna show you what I'm talkin bout Hook: But I'm afraid That i can't grab it all with my bare hands That's how it shoulda been And I'm afraid Cuz I can't tell my daughter where I've been Cuz I'm her Superman Verse 2: And I've been feeling Outdated Drinking under the table Reality hit hard, like bats, Jose Conseco And I'm Dead guilty City trying to kill me I'm trying to be real It's like don't nobody feel They like He's a fool, he's a lie Ain't nobody perfect, but it doesn't hurt to try I carry all my flaws in a bag on my back Wear my heart right on my sleeve And my socks don't ever match And I was taught to Pay my respects to the society But I'm Black and they don't really like me A target is on my chest Still doing my best Trying to succeed under all this stress I'm bout to blow up (yeah) Cuz they act like I'll never be enough (yeah) My demons tryna get me now Destroying everything i learned is sounding stupid now I wanna show you what i'm talkin bout Hook: But I'm afraid That I can't grab it all with my bare hands That's how it shoulda been And I'm afraid Cuz i can't tell my daughter where I've been Cuz i'm her superman
