The roots false media instrumental

The roots "false media"

Starving and hungry until I make it
Most others will rob you naked
Risk the take of the news making them famous
And buddying up with the plaintiff
Defending your right for liberty can't shake it
Jobs out here are everywhere but placements 
vacant 
Surviving hatred
From the next nigga who'd rather not see you 
adjacent 
From the graves we placed in
Watching you struggle 
Instead of helping you make it
Try to be humble but that bubble burst before 
you even clear the dust from the rubble
But wait
Because they swear they love you
Feeding you lines 
That patronize while the whole time they on the 
sidelines
Looking forward to your decline
In front of your eyes lies disguise the nature of 
their climb
Onto your back while you squirm wiggle and slide
Go thru mine fields for your pride
Trying not to take ambien for your sleepless 
nights
Marching thru diversity like a soldier
Many arms open looking for the one who will hold 
ya
Optimism on the walls of places as pictures and 
posters
But the barrel from they lips is holstered 
When you follow the rollercoaster
That's been holding you down and other peoples 
success provoking
Make the right turn you've chosen
Hoping 
That your life isn't already written
Put in position other people think your kidding
Probably the only thing your wishing
That everything your living is a script and 
Your the main character in this position
Until you've found the transition thatll pivot you 
into Gods grace and forgiveness
