Kendrick Lamar – The Heart Part 5 Lyrics


The Heart Part 5 Lyrics by Kendrick Lamar


As I get a lil’ older
I realize life is perspective
And my perspective may differ from yours
I want to say thank you to everyone that’s been down with me
All my fans, all my beautiful fans
Anyone who’s ever gave me a lesson
All my people

I come from a generation of pain where murder is minor
Rebellious and Margielas’ll chip you for designer
Belt buckles that cloud overzealous and prone to violence
Make the wrong turn, be a will of the will alignment
Residue burn, mist of the inner city
Miscommunication to keep homi’ detector busy
No protection is risky
Desensitized, I vandalized pain
Covered up in camouflage, get used to hearing arsenal rain

Analyze, risk your life, take the charge
Homies done fucked your baby mama once you hit the yard
That’s culture
Twenty-three hour lockdown
Did somebody call? Said your little nephew was shot down
The coach is involved

I done seen n***** do seventeen
Hit the halfway house, get out and get his brains blown out
Lookin’ to buy some weed
Car wash is played out
New GoFundMe, accounts will proceed
A brand new victim will shatter those dreams, the culture

I want, I want, I want, I want…
But I want you to want me, too
I want, I want, I want, I want…
I want the
I want me, babe
I want the hood
(Look what I done for you)
Look what I done for you
Look what I done for you

I said I do this for my culture
To let y’all know what a n**** look like in a bulletproof Rover
In my mama’s sofa
Was a doo doo popper, hair tricker, walk up closer
Ain’t no photoshoppin’
Friends bipolar, grab you by your pockets
No option if you froze up
I always play the offense
N***** goin’ to work and sellin’ work, late for work
Workin’ late, prayin’ for work, but he don’t pay for work
That’s the culture, point the finger, promote ya
Remote location, witness protection, they gon’ hold ya
The streets got me fucked up, y’all can miss me
I wanna represent for us
New revolution was up and movin’
I’m in Argentina wiping my tears, full of confusion
Water in between us, another peer’s been executed, history repeats again
Make amends to find a n**** with the same skin to do it

But that’s the culture
Crack a bottle, hard to deal with the pain when you’re sober
By tomorrow, we forget the remains, we start over
That’s the problem, our foundation was trained to accept whatever follows
Dehumanize the sensitive
Scrutinize the way we live for you and I
Enemies shook my hand, I can promise I meet you
In a land where no equal is your equal, never saying, “Told ya”
In a land where hurt people hurt more people
Fuck callin’ it culture

I want, I want, I want, I want…
But I want you to want me, too
I want, I want, I want, I want…
I want the
I want me, babe
I want the hood
(Look what I done for you)
Look what I done for you
Look what I done for you

(Take the drums out)

Celebrate new life when it come back around
The purpose is in the lessons we learning now
Sacrifice personal gain over everything
Just to see the next generation better than ours
I wasn’t perfect, the skin I was in, I truly suffered
Temptation and patience, everything that the body nurtures
I felt the good, I felt the bad and I felt the worry
But all in all, my productivity has stayed urgent

Face your fears, I always knew that I would make it here
Where the energy is magnified and persevered
Consciousness is synchronized and crystal clear
Euphoria is glorified and made his
Reflecting on my life and what I’ve done
Paid dues, made rules, changed out of love
Them same fews made schools change curriculums
But didn’t change me staring down the barrel of the gun

Shit, I feel resentful, I didn’t see my full potential
Should I feel regret about the good that I was into?
Everything is everything, this ain’t coincidental
I woke up that morning with more heart to give you
As I bleed through the speakers, feel my presence
To my brother, to my kids, I’m in Heaven
To my mother, to my sis, I’m in Heaven
To my father, to my wife, I’m serious, this is Heaven

To my friends, make sure you countin’ them blessings
To my fans, make sure you make them investments
And to the killer that sped up my demise
I forgive you, just know your soul’s in question
I seen the pain in your pupil when that trigger has squeezed
And though you did me gruesome, I was surely relieved
I completed my mission, wasn’t ready to leave
But fulfilled my days, my creator was pleased

I can’t stress how I love y’all
I don’t need to be in flesh just to hug y’all
The memories recollect just because y’all
Celebrate me with respect, the unity we protect is above all
And Sam, I be watchin’ over you
Make sure my kids watch all my interviews
Make sure you live for our dreams we produce
Keep that genius in your brain on the move

And to my neighborhood, let the good prevail
Make sure them babies and the leaders out of jail
Look for salvation when troubles get real
‘Cause you can’t help the world until you help yourself
And I can’t blame the hood the day that I was killed
You had to see it, that’s the only way to feel
And though my physical won’t reap the benefits
The energy that carry on emit still
I want you
