Kendrick Lamar – HiiiPoWeR lyrics

[Intro]
Everybody put three fingers in the air
The sky is falling, the wind is calling
Stand for something, or die in the morning
Section.80, HiiiPoWeR

[Verse 1]

Visions of Martin Luther staring at me

Malcolm X put a hex on my future, someone catch me

I’m falling victim to a revolutionary song, the Serengeti’s clone

Back to put you backstabbers back on your spinal bone

You slipped your disc when I slid you my disc

You wanted to diss but jumped on my dick

Grown men never should bite their tongue

Unless you eating pussy that smell like it’s a stale plum

I got my finger on the mothafuckin’ pistol

Aiming it at a pig, Charlotte’s web is going to miss you

My issue isn’t televised, and you ain’t gotta tell the wise

How to stay on beat, because our life’s an instrumental

This is physical and mental, I won’t sugar coat it

You’d die from diabetes if these other niggas wrote it

And everything on TV just a figment of imagination

I don’t want plastic nation, dread that like a Haitian

While you mothafuckas waiting, I be off the slave ship

Building pyramids, writing my own hieroglyphs

[Hook]

Just call the shit HiiiPoWeR

Nigga, nothing less than HiiiPoWeR

Five-star dishes, food for thought, bitches

I mean the shit is, Huey Newton going stupid

You can’t resist his HiiiPoWeR

Throw your hands up for HiiiPoWeR

[Verse 2]

Visions of Martin Luther staring at me

If I see it how he seen it, that would make my parents happy

Sorry mama, I can’t turn the other cheek

They wanna knock me off the edge like a fucking widow’s peak, uhh

And she always told me pray for the weak, uhh

Them demons got me, I ain’t prayed in some weeks, uhh

Dear Lord come save me, the devil’s working hard

He probly clocking double shifts on all of his jobs

Frightening, so fucking frightening

Enough to drive a man insane, I need a license to kill

I’m standing on the field full of land mines

Doing the moonwalk, hoping I blow up in time

Cause 2012 might not be a fucking legend

Tryna be a fucking legend, the man of mankind

Who said a black man in the Illuminati?

Last time I checked, that was the biggest racist party

So get up off that slave ship

Build your own pyramids, write your own hieroglyphs

[Hook]

Just call the shit HiiiPoWeR

Nigga, nothing less than HiiiPoWeR

Five-star dishes, food for thought, bitches

I mean the shit is, Bobby Seale making meals

You can’t resist his HiiiPoWeR

Throw your hands up for HiiiPoWeR

[Bridge: Alori Joh]

Every day we fight the system just to make our way

We been down for too long, but that’s alright

We was built to be strong, cause it’s our life, na-na-na

Every day we fight the system, we fight the system

We fight the system (Never like the system)

We been down for too long but that’s alright, na-na-na

[Verse 3]

Who said a black man in the Illuminati?

Last time I checked, that was the biggest racist party

Last time I checked, we was racing with Marcus Garvey

On the freeway to Africa ’til I wreck my Audi

And I want everybody to view my autopsy

So you can see exactly where the government had shot me

No conspiracy, my fate is inevitable

They play musical chairs once I’m on that pedestal

Frightening, so fucking frightening

Enough to drive a man insane, a woman insane

The reason Lauryn Hill don’t sing, or Kurt Cobain

Loaded that clip and then said bang, the drama it bring is crazy

Product of the late 80’s

Tryna stay above water, that’s why we shun the navy

Pull your guns and play me, let’s set it off

Cause a riot, throw a Molotov, somebody told me them pirates had got lost

Cause we been off them slave ships

Got our own pyramids, write our own hieroglyphs

[Hook]

Just call the shit HiiiPoWeR

Yeah, nothing less than HiiiPoWeR

Five-star dishes, food for thought, bitches

I mean the shit is, Fred Hampton on your campus

You can’t resist his HiiiPoWeR

Throw your hands up for HiiiPoWeR

[Outro]

Thug Life! Thug Life!
