Lyrics to "Alright"

--- Produced by Pharrell Williams & Sounwave ---
--- Directed by Colin Tilley ---

--- Intro: Kendrick Lamar ---
Alls my life I has to fight, nigga
Alls my life I...

Hard times like, "God!"
Bad trips like, "Yeah!"
Nazareth, I'm fucked up
Homie, you fucked up
But if God got us, then we gon' be alright


--- Hook: Pharrell Williams ---
Nigga, we gon' be alright
Nigga, we gon' be alright
We gon' be alright
Do you hear me, do you feel me? We gon' be alright
Nigga, we gon' be alright
Huh? We gon' be alright
Nigga, we gon' be alright
Do you hear me, do you feel me? We gon' be alright


--- Verse 1: Kendrick Lamar ---
Uh, and when I wake up
I recognize you're looking at me for the pay cut

But homicide be looking at you from the face down
What MAC-11 even boom with the bass down?
Schemin', and let me tell you 'bout my life
Painkillers only put me in the twilight
Where pretty pussy and Benjamin is the highlight

Now tell my momma I love her, but this what I like, Lord knows
Twenty of 'em in my Chevy, tell 'em all to come and get me
Reaping everything I sow, so my karma comin' heavy
No preliminary hearings on my record
I'm a motherfucking gangster in silence for the record

Tell the world I know it's too late
Boys and girls, I think I gone cray
Drown inside my vices all day
Won't you please believe when I say


--- Pre-Hook: Kendrick Lamar ---
Wouldn't you know
We been hurt, been down before
Nigga, when our pride was low
Lookin' at the world like, "Where do we go?"

Nigga, and we hate po-po
Wanna kill us dead in the street fo sho'

Nigga, I'm at the preacher's door
My knees gettin' weak, and my gun might blow
But we gon' be alright


--- Hook: Pharrell Williams ---
Nigga, we gon' be alright
Nigga, we gon' be alright
We gon' be alright
Do you hear me, do you feel me? We gon' be alright
Nigga, we gon' be alright
Huh? We gon' be alright
Nigga, we gon' be alright
Do you hear me, do you feel me? We gon' be alright


--- Verse 2: Kendrick Lamar ---
What you want you: a house or a car?
Forty acres and a mule? A piano, a guitar?

Anything, see my name is Lucy, I'm your dog
Motherfucker, you can live at the mall
I can see the evil, I can tell it, I know it's illegal
I don't think about it, I deposit every other zero
Thinking of my partner, put the candy, paint it on the Regal
Digging in my pocket, ain't a profit big enough to feed you
Every day my logic get another dollar just to keep you
In the presence of your chico... Ah!

I don't talk about it, be about it, every day I sequel
If I got it then you know you got it, Heaven, I can reach you
Pet dog, pet dog, pet dog, my dog, that's all
Pick back and chat, I trap the back for y'all

I rap, I black on track so rest assured
My rights, my wrongs; I write 'til I'm right with God


--- Pre-Hook: Kendrick Lamar ---
Wouldn't you know
We been hurt, been down before
Nigga, when our pride was low
Lookin' at the world like, "Where do we go?"

Nigga, and we hate po-po
Wanna kill us dead in the street fo sho'

Nigga, I'm at the preacher's door
My knees gettin' weak, and my gun might blow
But we gon' be alright


--- Hook: Pharrell Williams ---
Nigga, we gon' be alright
Nigga, we gon' be alright
We gon' be alright
Do you hear me, do you feel me? We gon' be alright
Nigga, we gon' be alright
Huh? We gon' be alright
Nigga, we gon' be alright
Do you hear me, do you feel me? We gon' be alright


--- Outro: Kendrick Lamar ---
I keep my head up high
I cross my heart and hope to die
Lovin' me is complicated
Too afraid, a lot of changes
I'm alright, and you're a favorite
Dark nights in my prayers


--- Poem ---
I remembered you was conflicted
Misusing your influence, sometimes I did the same
Abusing my power, full of resentment
Resentment that turned into a deep depression
Found myself screamin' in the hotel room
I didn't wanna self-destruct
The evils of Lucy was all around me
So I went runnin' for answers

How do you think about the song "Alright"
