Lyrics Shed Tears – Killer Mike, Mozzy

If you weren’t so eager to please the white man
And send the grading curve up
There’d be three times as many of us here now
What kind of Tom are you, anyway
Same as you, I guess
Except that I don’t try to have it both ways
Are you calling me a ‘Tom’, man

Well, none of us were picked for our militancy now, were we
Now why don’t you go away and let me alone
Why don’t you join the team, man
Team Man, I’m not playing any games
Come here now, come
This fool is crazy, man

Ayy, brother, brother
An enemy .. mothers
Just know that your days are numbered
And life might be filled with troubles
Your troubles may come in doubles
In form of your former lovers
They use your kids for revenge
‘Cause you dug her but never loved her
Never loved her, but drug her
Drug her and made her suffer
Left her a single mother
No malice since I was younger
Barely filled with that hunger
Barely could help my mama
How could I be father
Daily, keep gettin’ harder

Have mercy
Every week, somethin’ hittin’ me adversely
I remember dropping my babies off at the church nursery
I remember seeing hurt all alone in the church service
Asking God to reveal me a plan and a higher purpose
Was a boy, now I’m grown
Immaturity gone
Lying, scheming, and dreaming in queue is gettin’ your own
Ask anybody that know me, I suffered slowly for years
And now I’m like Kobe grippin’ that trophy closely and I shed tears

I’m right here waiting to give you rest for your soul
When your soul needs peace, come unto me
I’ll give you rest you rest
Today is the day you find rest
Trust in me, I will give you rest
Rest, rest
Rest for your soul

Yeah, ayy, love nothing
We ain’t just we come from it, we cut from it
Troubled youngin, .., they think nothing of it
Product of my environment, I am nothing but it
We prepare ourself for the penitentiary, it come with thuggin’
Ayy, mama told me it get lonely in that cell
But she ain’t tell me it’ll break you, sis, I thank you for your mail
Poppin’ pills ’til I can’t feel, somebody save me from myself ..
‘Member granny grabbed the belt and went berserk about us smokin’
Get teary-eyed about them moments, they was golden
Yeah, rainy days approaching, we was sheltered, do they help her
Wish I could hit your cellular, without you here, I’m helpless

I’ll give you rest for soul
I’m standin’ here waitin’
Come unto me, I’ll give you rest
Don’t be afraid to rest

I shed tears every morning in the bathroom mirror
Face to face with fate, had to face my fears
It was me, I’m the reason that I fell
That was hell, locked in self-guilt like jail
Lord, I cried, almost died, empty inside
The devil whispers in your ear, you contemplate suicide
I tell you I know, promise, honest, been there before
And it’s pride before the fall, it’s how it usually go

Lookin’ at me, I was struttin’, proud as can be
Couldn’t tell me nothin’, I was hushin’ people, peak of the G
I heard my a*s after voices, now they speakin’ through me
Sometime my faith get fully shaken, I get weak as can be
Pray and repent, gather my strength, that’s like it’s meant
The devil sent the storm to break me, but I didn’t buy a Bent’
Won’t buy a bin, I’ll suffer, then will do it again
Made it to the mountaintop straight from the valley of sin

When you’re feeling tired
When you’re feeling broken
When you’re feeling burdened
I’ll give you rest
Rest, come unto me
I’ll give you
I’m your refuge and until you can find me

Oh, rest
For your soul, for your soul
Rest, oohhh
Rest, rest for your soul
I’ll give you rest, rest for your soul…
