Testo Freedom

Growing up in the South
Where we get it how we live
Looking for a way out
So show a young boy pity
Momma told me trouble wouldn't last always
Baby keep on living there'll be brighter days
Can you tell me when the pain will go away?
That's when I heard the preacher say
Do you really want to know about freedom? (Yes, I do)(x2)
I never knew that I was living, I was living (x4)
Until now

We come from the land of bullet holes and gold teeth
Where blunts be full of dro that they roll as we blow trees
But I was raised in South Atlanta we never seen palm trees
No vacations all that they tell us is just palms means
But knowing that these Pharaohs ain't never could hold me
And in the end we win, kings is what we gon be
But I'm walking through my life and never knew that I was living
We ain't poverty stricken, but man you gotta be kidding
Saying make the best of opportunities you given
Man I gotta better chance at scratching lottery tickets
Stay in school for twelve years, diploma freaking worthless When school shootings don't make the news it ain't working
I repeat myself so you can know about the realness
I got smoke all in my lung boy, I don't know about forgiveness
Introduction to the Father now I gotta be a witness
Every spirit that's inside of me I'm feeling kind of fearless
Yeah

Growing up in the South
Where we get it how we live
Looking for a way out
So show a young boy pity
Momma told me trouble wouldn't last always
Baby keep on living there'll be brighter days
Can you tell me when the pain will go away?
That's when I heard the preacher say
Do you really want to know about freedom? (Yes, I do)(x2)
I never knew that I was living, I was living (x4)
Until now

I crashed landed now I'm live from the south side
It ain't about the money then they know they wasting my time
The school system, police and city government been under serving so all of my people struggling
Homies that ride with me who ain't never made it further than the ninth grade or got locked on charges, but they hurdle them
Living for the bass in the trunk and loud weed
Pour liquor, another life taken just last week
Cigarettes and beer we just reduce it to the villain
Taking everyone around me the companies making a killing
This is deep south rebel flags and camo outfits
Chevy pickups and impalas you know its crowded
Saying that you better put your money where your mouth is
Don't ignore the floss baby this is what the south is
Bloodlines stand tall to oppositions
Trusting in the only Son who purchased my position
Yeah

I mean when I say pride we just raised that way
I never knew what life really was
My man came over there we just making conversations talking about life and what it really is
Knowing now that freedom is found in God. And He's the source of what life really is

Growing up in the South
Where we get it how we live
Looking for a way out
So show a young boy pity
Momma told me trouble wouldn't last always
Baby keep on living there'll be brighter days
Can you tell me when the pain will go away?
That's when I heard the preacher say
Do you really want to know about freedom? (Yes, I do)(x2)
I never knew that I was living, I was living (x4)
Until now

Do you really want to know about freedom? (Yes, I do)(x3)
I never knew that I was living, I was living (x2)
So everybody say
Yes i do(x8)
