Beautiful Death

[Verse 1: Ab-Soul]

My only fear is fear itself

I ain't afraid to die, more afraid of myself

Niggas looking at me like I don't hear myself

Like I don't know pain -- I been here myself

(This life will drive you crazy)

Only if you let it

I'm just an American expressin' - Just give me credit

Won't be surprised if before I rise, I'm beheaded

These are the days of our lives

Nightmares of a thief comin' takin' my life

I go to sleep thinkin' I may never wake up

In this reality, at least I keep my bed made up

I just wish they all could see what I can see

If we could stop it with the violence and apply a lil' logic I believe

We could thrive to be a promise, see -- Civilization

We may die individually, but as a nation

We'll rise, nigga, change lives, nigga

Break ties from the everyday lies, nigga

It's not time, until it's our time


(Don't be so afraid to die)

Until it's our time

(Don't be so afraid to die)

It's our time, 'til it's our time

(Cause we'll never die)

[Verse 2: Ab Soul]

All I see is confusion and chaos

Blatant disorder, authorities pickin' on the minorities

Unfortunately, the land of the free has little to offer me

And got me awfully thinkin' about offin' me

I wake up in the morning and I ask myself

Is life worth living, should I blast myself?

I'm tired of being broke and even worse

The upper class acts like they want me off this earth

(This life will drive you crazy)

Only if you allow it

That's only if you a coward and you're sure to get devoured

To no avail, tuck your tail, and all you do is give them power

Who's gonna take a stand, who's gonna be a man?

Who do you work for? Please help me understand

You could be the victor in a situation

We may die individual, but as a nation

We'll rise, nigga, change lives, nigga

Break ties from the everyday lies, nigga

It's not time, until it's our time


[Verse 3: Punch]

Pardon my immortality

I'm Martin Luther shooting back on the balcony

Escapin' the Lorraine until they call in the cavalry

Alpha 184, oh lord, nobody blast for me

If it takes me to be a martyr to push the envelope farther

Nigga show me to the slaughter

I gladly sacrifice what is percieved

Sow my seed, so my seed can live its dreams

My spittin' image, see my stitching in his genes

According to my likeness, his breath of life is priceless

My enlightenment's the ancient Chaldeans

Penetratin' America's culture, to its very being

It's not political though, it's more critical

Spiritual warfare, you can murder me in the physical

But I advise y'all to keep me alive

In the event of my demise, I'll be bigger than life

Beautiful death, nigga

[Bridge: Ab-Soul]

Tragedy after tragedy, it's sad to see

America killin' her babies like Casey Anthony

We try, we try to cope and hold on to our sanity

Poppin' ecstasy will surely shorten life expectancy

We travel the seven seas in hopes for a little peace

We promised pie in the sky, I'm dyin' to get a piece

Put down your piece, I'm wish you all a beautiful death
