Kendrick Lamar – Pride. Lyrics

(Intro – Steve Lacy)
Love’s gonna get you killed
But pride’s gonna be the death of you and you and me
And you and you and you and me
And you and you and you and me
And you and you and you and me and

(Chorus – Steve Lacy & Kendrick Lamar)
It wasn’t all to share, but there
In another life, I surely was there
It wasn’t all to share, but there
I care, I care

(Verse 1 – Kendrick Lamar)
Hell raising, wheel chasing, new worldy possessions
Flesh making, spirit breaking, which one would you lessen?
The better part, the human heart
You love em or dissect em
Happiness or flashiness? How do you serve the question?
See, in the perfect world, I would be perfect, world
I don’t trust people enough beyond they surface, world
I don’t love people enough to put my faith in men
I put my faith in these lyrics, hoping I make amend
I understand I ain’t perfect
I probably won’t come around
This time, I might put you down
Last time, I ain’t give a f**k, I still feel the same now
My feelings might go numb, you’re dealing with cold thumb
I’m willing to give up a leg and arm and show empathy from
Pity parties and functions and you and yours
A perfect world, you probably live another 24
I can’t fake humble just cause your ass is insecure
I can’t fake humble just cause your ass is insecure

(Chorus – Steve Lacy & Kendrick Lamar)
It wasn’t all to share, but there
In another life, I surely was there
It wasn’t all to share, but there
I care, I care

(Refrain – Kendrick Lamar & Anna Wise)
Maybe I wasn’t there
Maybe I wasn’t there
Maybe I wasn’t there
Maybe I wasn’t there

(Verse 2 – Kendrick Lamar)
Now, in a perfect world, I probably won’t be insensitive
Cold as December, but never remember what Winter did
I wouldn’t blame you for mistakes I made or the bed I laid
Seems like I point the finger just to make a point nowadays
Smiles and cold stares, the temperature goes there
Indigenous disposition, feel like we belong here
I know the walls, they can listen, I wish they could talk back
The hurt becomes repetition, the love almost lost that
Sick venom in men and women overcome with pride
A perfect world is never perfect, only filled with lies
Promises are broken and more resentment come alive
Race barriers make inferior of you and I
See, in a perfect world, I’ll choose faith over riches
I’ll choose work over bi**hes, I’ll make schools out of prison
I’ll take all the religions and put em all in one service
Just to tell em we ain’t s**t, but He’s been perfect, world

(Chorus – Steve Lacy & Kendrick Lamar)
It wasn’t all to share, but there
In another life, I surely was there
It wasn’t all to share, but there
I care, I care

(Refrain – Kendrick Lamar & Anna Wise)
Maybe I wasn’t there
Maybe I wasn’t there
Maybe I wasn’t there
Maybe I wasn’t there
