[INTRO] Bbm
[VERSE]
Bbm
This is called being high as shit

That's the name of this song nigga, 
Bbm
"High as Shit for Hours"
Bbm
Here we go, yeah

[VERSE]
Bbm
American hypocrisy, oh let me count the ways
Bbm
They came here seeking freedom 
Bbm
and they end up owning slaves
Bbm
Justified it using what Christianity would say
Bbm
Religion don't mean shit, 
Bbm
there's too much ego in the way
Bbm
That's why ISIS is in crisis
Bbm
But in reality this country do the same shit
Bbm
Take a life and call it righteous
Bbm
Remember when Bin Laden got killed, supposedly
Bbm
In a hotel lobby after a show
Bbm
Was noticing these white ladies watching CNN
Bbm
Covering the action
Bbm
They read the headline 
Bbm
and then they all started clapping
Bbm
As if Lebron has just scored a basket at the buzzer
Bbm
I stood there for a second 
Bbm
watch them high five each other
Bbm
For real? I though this was thou shalt not kill
Bbm
But police still letting off niggas in the Ville
Bbm
Claiming that he reached for a gun
Bbm
They really think we dumb and got a death wish
Bbm
Now somebody's son is laying breathless
Bbm
When I was a little boy my father lived in Texas
Bbm
Pulled up in Toyota, drove that bitch like it was Lexus
Bbm
Put my bag in his trunk and headed off for Dallas
Bbm
Out their for the summer feeling just like I was Alice
Bbm
Lost in the wonder land where niggas still suffering
Bbm
Just like they was back home and that's wrong

www.chordzone.org
Bbm
So now its fuck the government, 
Bbm
they see my niggas struggling
Bbm
And they don't give a fuck at all 
Bbm
and that's wrong, yeah

[HOOK]
Bbm
The type of shit that make you wanna
Bbm
The type of shit that make you wanna let go
Bbm
The type of shit that make you wanna
Bbm
The type of shit that make you wanna let go

 [VERSE]
Bbm
I had a convo with the president, 
Bbm
I paid to go and see him
Bbm
Thinking bout the things I said 
Bbm
I'd say when I would see him
Bbm
Feeling nervous, sitting in a room full of white folks
Bbm
Thinking about the black man plight, 
Bbm
think I might choke, nope
Bbm
Raised my hand and asked a man a question
Bbm
'Does he see the struggles 
Bbm
of his brothers in oppression?
Bbm
And if so, if you got all the 
Bbm
power in the clout as the president
Bbm
What's keeping you from helping niggas out?'
Bbm
Well I didn't say nigga, but you catch my drift
Bbm
He look me in my eyes 
Bbm
and spoke and he was rather swift
Bbm
He broke the issues down 
Bbm
and showed me he was well aware
Bbm
I got the vibe he was sincere 
Bbm
and that the brother cared
Bbm
But dawg you in the chair, 
Bbm
what's the hold up?
Bbm
He said there's things that I wanna fix
Bbm
But you know this shit nigga, politics
Bbm
Don't stop fighting and don't stop believing
Bbm
You can make the world better 
Bbm
for your kids before you leave it


Bbm
Change is slow, always has been, always will be
Bbm
But fuck that, I'ma bust back, till they kill me
Bbm
Change is slow, always has been, always will be
Bbm
But fuck that, I'ma bust back until they kill me
Bbm
You feel me?

[HOOK]
Bbm
The type of shit that make you wanna (Aight third verse)
Bbm
The type of shit that make you wanna let go
Bbm
The type of shit that make you wanna
Bbm
The type of shit that make you wanna let go

[VERSE]
Bbm
Here's a thought for my revolutionary heart
Bbm
Take a deeper look at history, it's there to pick apart
Bbm
See the people at the top, 
Bbm
they get to do just what they want
Bbm
Till after while the people 
Bbm
at the bottom finally get smart
Bbm
Then they start to holla revolution, 
Bbm
tired of living here, destitution
Bbm
Fuck that looting, 
Bbm
can you tell me what's the best solution?
Bbm
I used to think it was to over throw oppressors
Bbm
See, if we destroy the system that means 
Bbm
we'll have less of greed
Bbm
But see, it's not that simple
Bbm
I got to thinking bout the history of human nature
Bbm
While this instrumental, play
Bbm
Then I realized something that made me wonder 
Bbm
if revolution was really ever the way
Bbm
Before you trip and throw a fit over these words I say
Bbm
Think about this shit for second, you heard the way
Bbm
The children in abusive households grow up 
Bbm
knocking girlfriends out cold
Bbm
That's called a cycle
Bbm
Abused becomes the abuser and that how life go, 
Bbm
so understand
Bbm
Look at the power, but you know what power does to man
Bbm
Corruption always leads us to the same shit again
Bbm
So when you talk about revolution dawg, 
Bbm
I hear just what you saying


Bbm
What good is taking over, when we know what you gon' do
Bbm
The only real revolution happens right inside of you
Bbm
I said
Bbm
What good is taking over, when we know what you gon' do
Bbm
The only real revolution happens right inside of you

[HOOK]
Bbm
The type of shit that make you wanna (High for hours nigga)
Bbm
The type of shit that make you wanna let go (Volume one)
Bbm
The type of shit that make you wanna
Bbm
The type of shit that make you wanna let go
