Goodness Sake

I'm not okay for goodness sake
When I'm around you I can see you’re the snake
I got hopes to relieve my pain
I got problems and substances won't solve’m
People talk behind my back then act like I never saw em
Pull up and ask what’s the problem
They replied you don't belong here
You got lucky this year
Blood, sweat, and tears
That's what i gave to be here
In this game it’s eat or be eaten
I'm afraid I cannot be beaten
My mind is the only one that defeated me
It done broke me
Snapped me into two
I thought it’d be different with you
I'm not okay for goodness sake
I'm awake now and can differentiate the real from the fake
Wow how many people i thought were cool
Were truly evil and cruel
Yall are see through
You can look at me
But I cannot see you
They keep telling me to
“Be You.”
Yall don't want me to speak the truth
