Bryant Dope – Raw From The Soul Lyrics

(Verse 1)
Now feel the pain of a young nigga
Live from the tombs of my soul
Flow grave digger
Lung cancer took my father figure
Ironic, cause I smoke
So I don’t remember that day
Fuck the chill of a cold world
Chemo too expensive, had to sit and watch his life curl
And what you know about that
A permanent tint, so my mind all black
My heart too, after what I’ve been through
Couldn’t walk a mile or an inch in his shoe
Couldn’t tie a tie until he showed me how to
So how I’m supposed to grow as a man without you

(Hook)
You always said I’d be a great man
I keep that in mind when I plant hope
Inside the holes in my soul
Cause every diamond started with some coal
And this is raw, from the soul
And this is raw, from the soul
And this is raw, from the soul
And this is raw, from the soul

(Verse 2)
Every morning that I wake up
Blessed from my rest
I put an L in my chest
While I dress, exhale next with finesse
I told moms, that’s how I deal with my stress
And lately I’ve been stressin’
Is God still real
I’m in need of some blessin’
Sometimes lookin’ at the sky for direction
When I’m still lost
It leave me second guessin’
Is anyone hearin’ this
Not just me, but the souls of the spirited
Mirror it, that picture of society
Preacher lookin’ at my paper like it’s his property
But this soul don’t need savin’
If that means I gotta give you weekly payments
Frame it, that picture of the church
Still talkin’ to God
I hope this time it works

(Hook)
