KENDRICK LAMAR lyrics : "Sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst"

When the lights shut off
And its my turn to settle down
My main concern

Promise that you will sing about me
Promise that you will sing about me


I said When the lights shut off
And its my turn to settle down
My main concern

Promise that you will sing about me
Promise that you will sing about me


I woke up this morning and figured I'd call you
In case I'm not here tomorrow
I'm hoping that I can borrow a piece of mind

I'm behind on what's really important
My mind is really distorted
I find nothing but trouble in my life

I'm fortunate you believe in a dream
This orphanage we call a ghetto is quite a routine
And last night was just another distraction

Or a reaction of what we consider madness
I know exactly what happened
You ran outside when you heard my brother cry for help

Held him like a newborn baby and made him feel
Like everything was alright
And a fight he tried to put up, but the type

Of bullet that stuck had went against his will
As blood spilled on your hands
My plans rather vindictive

Everybody's a victim in my eyes
When I ride its a murderous rhythm
And outside became pitch black

A demon glued to my back whispering, ?Get em?
I got em
And I ain't give a $#[email protected]

That same mentality I told my brother not to duck
In actuality its a trip how we trip off of colors
I wonder if I'll ever discover

A passion like you and recover
The life that I knew as a young'n
In pajamas and ?

When thunder comes it rains cats and dogs, dumb
^!$$%s like me never prosper
Prognosis of a problem child

I'm proud and well devoted
This piru %#@! been in me forever
So forever I'mma push it, wherever whenever

And I love you cause you love my brother like you did
Just promise me you'll tell this story when you make it big
And if I die before your album drop I hope ?


Promise that you will sing about me
Promise that you will sing about me


I said When the lights shut off
And its my turn to settle down

My main concern
Promise that you will sing about me
Promise that you will sing about me


You wrote a song about my sister on your tape
And called it section .80, the message resemble Brenda's Got a Baby

Whats crazy was, I was hearin about it
But doubted your ignorance, how could you ever
Just put her on blast and %#@!

Judging her past and %#@!
Well it's completely my future
A ^!$$% behind me right now asking for $$# and %#@!

And I'mma need that 40 dollars even if I gotta
$#[email protected], suck and swallow in the parking lot
Cause I was ? and followed by a married man, a father of three

My titties bounce on the cadence of his tingling keys
Matter of fact he my favorite cause he tip me with E's
He got a cousin named David and I seen him last week

This is the life of another girl damaged by the system
These foster homes, I run away and never do miss em
See, my hormones just run away and if I can get em back
To where they used to be then I'll probably be in the denim
Of family jean that you're wearing

How to be woman, or better yet a leader
You need her to learn something, then you probably need to beat her
That's how I was taught
Three ^!$$%s in one room, first time I was tossed
And I'm exhausted

But $#[email protected] that ?Sorry for your loss %#@!?
My sister died in vain, but what point are you trying to gain
If you can't fit the pumps I walk in?
I'll wait
Your rebuttal a little too late

And if you have a album date, just make sure I'm not in the song
Cause I don't need the attention bring enough of that on my own
And matter fact did I mention that I physically feel great?
A doctor's approval is a waste of time, I know I'm straight
I'll probably live longer than you and never fade away

I'll never fade away, I'll never fade away
I know my fate, and I'm on my grind for this cake
I'mma get or die trying, I'm eyeing every male gender with intentions of buying
You lying to these mother$#[email protected], talking about you can help with my story
You can help me if you sell this #[email protected] for me, ^!$$%
Don't ignore me?


When the lights shut off
And its my turn to settle down
My main concern
Promise that you will sing about me
Promise that you will sing about me


I said When the lights shut off
And its my turn to settle down
My main concern
Promise that you will sing about me
Promise that you will sing about me

Sometimes I look in a mirror and ask myself

Am I really scared of passing away, if it's today
I hope I hear a
Cry out from heaven so loud it can water down a demon
With the holy ghost till it drown in the blood of Jesus
I wrote some raps that make sure that my lifeline
Rake in the cent of a reaper, ensuring that my allegiance
With the other side may come soon

And if I'm doomed, may the wound help me mother be blessed for many moons
I suffer a lot
And every day the glass mirror get tougher to watch
I tie my stomach in knots
And I'm sure why I'm infatuated with death
My imagination is surely an aggravation of threats
That can come about

Because the tongue is mighty powerful
And I can name a list of your favorites that probably vouch
Cause I'm dreamer and sleep is the cousin of death
Really stuck in the scheme of, wondering whem I'mma rest
And you're right, your brother was a brother to me
And your sister's situation was the one that put me
