Born To Die Lyrics
Not a human, not afraid
I will not comply, I will not obey
See the plan is to depopulate
But the body can overcome anything, f*ck what a doctor say
Fans shaking me like Bobby wake up
Chip on my shoulder, I was holdin' a grudge
I wanted to be loved more than I wanted to love
But hey, what can I say, fame's a hell of a drug
Born a slave to a tyrant
It's goin' take more than just petitions and riots
Are we headed for a future of being indebted to credit
Hopin' the next leader elected will trump the one we beheaded
Words the wealthiest rappers will never utter
'Them checks they throwin' to niggas a motherf*cker'
Seems like the future was brighter when I was younger
(Seems like the future was brighter when I was younger)
I'm torn between performing and rewriting the norm
Am I born to transform or just to die and move on
Be the life that people mourn while reciting all my songs
To the battle I am sworn [?]
Beaten down to the pulp for being different
You question old tradition they just say you superstitious
Like a snake that eats its own tail, the economic system
Public schools the babysitter, health care is the modern day Adolf Hitler
Fact check, ever since the internet
Molestation multiplied by a million percent
Your aunts and uncles, niece and nephews all align with the shit
History shows for speaking up my whole life is at risk
Yeah I'm cocky, kamikaze, who gon' stop me? [?]
Illuminati? Neo-Nazis? They do me how they do Cosby
When you winnin' they gon' love you till you lose like Ronda Rousey
Every revolutionary they execute 'em proudly
It go JFK, nope, MLK, nope
Since Lennon got smoked, it's clear they don't want us to have hope
They tore down our houses, replaced it with dope
And say that it's our fault, false!

You wanted to fight
So you wanna be brave
So you found the line and you've seen the truth and you feel betrayed
Well it comes with cost
A price too large
Cause if we're really just born to die
I'd rather never been born at all

Stay in school they said, use your tools they said
But being on TV looks pretty cool I said
That's true I said, must I remind myself
These corporations aren't your friends, you should've signed yourself
They, they, who are they? They are us
We are they, the pyramids started at the top, we just mimic and behave
The same way, Babylon brainwaves
Human incarceration's the modern day slave trade
Cost of college, cost of living so high you can't maintain
All you can do is sell pills, drink tea, and [?]
Struggle to make mortgage and re-up by payday
And the wealthiest families split it up eight ways

You wanted to fight
So you wanna be brave
So you found the line and you've seen the truth and you feel betrayed
Well it comes with cost
A price too large
Cause if we're really just born to die
I'd rather never been born at all
