Can Anybody Hear Me (feat. Punch)


I've tried to do right

Seems as though the only way is selling my soul

Its getting hard out here

Does anybody feel me?

Cause I'm drowning in shame

Trying to maintain

Wide awake chasing my dreams

Is anybody out there?

Can anybody hear me?

[Verse 1:Ab-Soul]

Sometimes I gotta ask myself what do I do it for

Is it to cover up the fact I'm really insecure?

See music made it possible for me to be somebody

So if you had to say yourself

Is my intention pure?

Am I the next Shakur?

Or an attention whore?

Am I Big in his prime or am I premature

Does anybody feel me or am I too far to reach

Like the edge of the world, from Redondo beach

Some say I manifest destiny when I'm on these beats

Others say I ain't flashy enough to shine

You need a chain at least

And you can be more hood

You got niggas on both sides

You acting like you ain't good

Well you from Carson right

Ras Kass was tight

And you hot

But can you make another soul on ice

Everybody trynna tell me what I shouldn't and should

But will they still wanna chop it up when I go 'wood


[Verse 2:Punch]

While niggas searching for a pot o' gold

I compose the God particle my heart is stone

Pumping cement through my veins

Taking everything for granted

Who can recognize my pain

Y'all niggas never did hear me

So I quit calling out to niggas

Let y'all deal with it, I figured

Why cast my pearls to swine

If you don't know about grapes

I couldn't tell you 'bout wine

I couldn't tell you 'bout these lines

They just hit me like rain

Without a cloud in the sky

On a summer's day

Ay, I guess it's how I was raised

Acquired knowledge, while my peers frolicked and played

My Prodigal Son ways, disrupting my coming of age

Future looking dim and Ab-Soul wear shades

I'd never cover my face

I look death in the eyes, I didn't blink one time

I never felt more alive than that day

But who's to say I'm different

And when I speak niggas scared they ain't listening

And that's beyond me

But I believe it's far more menacing

And the truth was stranger than fiction once reality get to kicking in

It's like the modern day Noah's Ark, they took no note

Their bad heart came back and bit them no their hope floats

That's why I'm fishing through a sea of niggas

They don't hear me and I don't see 'em niggas


[Verse 3:Ab-Soul]

You see, it's like the Titanic scene

With the rescue boats

It's less dramatic in that

I can save y'all with quotes

I dropped the gym adrenaline accelerated my pulse

And I can say it's dope but what do I really know

Currently the word is that I'm too abstract

I can barely get my engineer to mix my tracks

I'm trynna provide you with facts

Trynna keep it real

But y'all not interested in that

You're more concerned with my appeal

You rather see me on YouTube, unconcealing the steel

Or on WorldStarHipHop, with diamonds in my wristwatch

Or a media take-out

Victim of a media stakeout

Cursing them out so bad

Most of my words were blanked out

I hate it when my name is mentioned with the same niggas

Who other than their DNA are the same niggas

They in the same circle, fuck the same bitches

Shake the same hands, man I'm trynna expand

For me its gotta be to catch a flight back to Carson

I'mma need a passport for it

If you don't wanna hear me do your boy a favour

And press fast-forward, and listen to the emotion in the chorus

No this ain't a song outfit

But if it was I wore it

Come from a different cloth, rippin my bars


With my bare hands I can move the earth

Just cause I said it in my verse

That's the power of words

You may not ever get what I was trying to accomplish

I might not ever get to do a song with Jay

And hear him brag on Hot97 about how I'm so honest

I'm ready to throw in the towel like laundry day

But I feel as though I've reached the point of no return

Like an expired thirty day warranty

And I deserve to be the best artist you heard like cattle

And I put that on, Herb the 3rd

That's my word
