Snow On Tha Bluff - J. Cole Lyric

Niggas be thinkin' I'm deep, intelligent
Fooled by my college degree
My IQ is average
There's a young lady out there, she way smarter than me
I scrolled through her timeline
In these wild times, and I started to read
She mad at these crackers
She mad at these capitalists, mad at these murder police
She mad at my niggas
She mad at our ignorance, she wear her heart on her sleeve
She mad at the celebrities
Lowkey I be thinkin' she talking 'bout me

Now I ain't no dummy to think I'm above criticism
So when I see somethin' that's valid, I listen
But shit, it's somethin' about a queen tone that's botherin' me
She strike me as somebody blessed enough
To grow up in conscious environment
With parents that know 'bout the struggle for liberation
And in turn they provided her with a perspective and awareness
Of the system and unfairness that afflicts 'em

And the clearest understandin' of what we gotta do to get free
And the frustration the fills her words
Seems to come from the fact that most people don't see
Just 'cause you woke, and I'm not
That shit ain't no reason to talk like you better than me
How you gon' lead
When you attackin' the very same niggas that really do need
The shit that you sayin'?
Instead of conveyin' you holier, come help get us up to speed

Shit, it's a reason it took like 200 years
For our ancestors just to get freed
These shackles be lockin' the mental way, more than the physical
I look at freedom like trees
Can't grow a forest like overnight
Hit the ghetto and slowly start plantin' your seeds
Fuck is the point of you preachin' your message
To those that already believe what you believe?

I'm on some "fuck a retweet", most people is sheep
You got all the answers, but how you gon' reach?
If I could make one more suggestion
Respectfully, I would say it's more effective
To treat people like children
Understandin' the time and love and patience that's needed to grow
This change is inevitable, but ain't none of us seen this before

Therefore we just gotta learn everything as we go
I struggle with thoughts on the daily
Feel like a slave that somehow done saved
Enough coins to buy his way up outta slavery
Thinkin' just maybe
In my pursuit to make life so much better for me and my babies
I done betrayed the very same people
That look at me like I'm some kind of a hero
Because of the zeros that's next to the commas

But look here, I promise, I'm not who you think
Ran into this nigga outside of the store yesterday
He said something that had me like "Wait"
He was like "Cole, 'preciate what you been doin my nigga, that's real"
But damn, why I feel faker than Snow on Tha Bluff?
Well, maybe 'cause deep down I know I ain't doing enough

The sun is shinin' today
The sun is shinin' today
The sun is shinin' today

Can you walk with me?
I hope we'll find the reason why we often sob, go on cry
Painful memories fuck up the vibe
Though I be tryin' to let the time heal my mind
I was once a child, I've gotten older
Still, I know I'm just a boy in God's eyes
Fill me up with wisdom and some courage
Plus endurance to survive, help mine thrive
