How much a dollar really cost

The question is detrimental paralyzin my thoughts

Parasites in my stomach keep me with a gut feeling y

Gotta see how I chillin once I park this luxury car

Hopping out feeling big as Mutombo

20 on pump six dirty Marcellus called me Dumbo

20 years ago can forget

Now I can lend all my ear or two how to stack these residuals

Tenfold the liberal concept of what men do

20 on 6 he didn hear me

Indigenous African only spoke Zulu

My American tongue was slurry

Walked out the gas station

A homeless man with a silly tan complexion

Asked me for ten grand

Stressin about dry land

Deep water powder blue skies that crack open

A piece of crack that he wanted I knew he was smokin

He begged and pleaded

Asked me to feed him twice I didn believe it

Told him it

Contributin money just for his pipe I couldn see it

He said son temptation is one thing that I defeated

Listen to me I want a single bill from you

Nothin less nothin more

I told him I ain have it and closed my door

Tell me how much a dollar cost

It more to feed your mind

Water sun and love the one you love

All you need the air you breathe

He starin at me in disbelief

My temper is buildin he starin at me I grab my key

He starin at me I started my car and tried to leave

And somethin told me to keep it in park until I could see

A reason why he was mad at a stranger like

I was supposed to save him

Like I the reason he homeless and askin me for a favor

He starin at me his eyes followed me with no laser

He starin at me I notice that his stare is contagious

Cause now I starin back at him feelin some type of disrespect

If I could throw a bat at him it be aimin at his neck

I never understood someone beggin for goods

Askin for handouts takin it if they could

And this particular person just had it down pat

Starin at me for the longest until he finally asked

Have you ever opened to Exodus 14

A humble man is all that we ever need

Tell me how much a dollar cost

It more to feed your mind

Water sun and love the one you love

All you need the air you breathe

Guilt trippin and feelin resentment

I never met a transient that demanded attention

They got me frustrated indecisive and power trippin

Sour emotions got me lookin at the universe different

I should distance myself I should keep it relentless

My selfishness is what got me here who the f I kiddin

So I tell you like I told the last bum crumbs and pennies

I need all of mines and I recognize this type of panhandlin all the time

I got better judgement I know when nigga hustlin

Keep in mind when I was strugglin I did compromise

Now I comprehend I smell grandpa old medicine

Reekin from your skin moonshine and gin

Nigga your babblin your words ain flatterin I imaginin

Denzel be lookin at O

Cause now I in sad thrills your gimmick is mediocre the jig is up

I seen you from a mile away losin focus

And I insensitive and I lack empathy

You looked at me and said potential is bittersweet

I looked at him and said nickel is mines to keep

He looked at me and said the truth it set you free

You lookin at the Messiah the son of Jehova the higher power

The choir that spoke the word the Holy Spirit the nerve

Of Nazareth and I tell you just how much a dollar cost

The price of having a spot in Heaven embrace your loss I am God

I wash my hands I said my grace what more do you want from me

Tears of a clown guess I not all what is meant to be

Shades of grey will never change if I condone

Turn this page help me change so right my wrongs
