Break Free lyrics

Title: Break Free

Album: Slave Music

Producer: Mr. J

 

Intro

They said I was too old. Too fat. Too dumb. Too black,

For someone other than mother to love me.

Too bold. Too white. Too limited in sight.

To break free and see everything that was me 

 

Hook 1

I am not alone. There are many who are like me.

I am not your enemy unless you came to fight me.

I'm proud of who I am, and who I might be.

No bond can hold me. I will break free. 

 

Verse 1

Heard a lot of labels in my day, and I talking Arista.

Don't stereotype me. I'm not a stock character.

I turn around it's something else they compare us to.

I'm not daring you, but don't make me embarrass you.

I'm not a token or some showpiece for diversity

And personally, your little pigeon-hole doesn't work for me.

My all black college where my actions were affirmative

Slayed my self-hate, confidence became permanent

3,000 brothers putting death to the myth

That a cultivated mind was some other people's gift.

I can see it in your eyes. You aint trying to hear me.

I'm just saying what most don't articulate as clearly.

Judge me by my actions, not the sag in my slacks.

Don't hype my achievements due to the fact I am black

That's the type of simple thinking that's holding us back 

Or perhaps racism or some mental handicap.

 

Hook 2

I am not alone. There are many who are like me.

I am not your enemy unless you came to fight me.

I'm proud of who I am, and who I might be.

No bond can hold me. I will break free. 

I am not alone. There are many who are like me.

I am not your enemy unless you came to fight me.

I'm proud of who I am, and who I might be. 

Burden me with your labels, but I will break free.

 

Verse 2

You can make excuses, or be one who chooses

To break free from the users, the clueless, the losers

I've been called many things, but only answer to a few.

Every chance I get I prove they couldn't dance up in my shoes.

Hard work is a habit so when hard times came.

I played hard to get with haters and went harder for the fame.

Don't get caught up in the game where your only role is victim.

If those bugs are in your system take this moment to evict them.

Mad at the world. I know how that flick goes.

But you did it to yourself, like Plaxico.

Now I aint Malcolm X, but I'm about respect.

You can't act like a toddler then holla bout smaller checks.

You hear the organ, but I aint trying to preach.

I just had something to say and I threw it on a beat.

Figured it's the best method, for those I want to reach.

So before this album ends let me go on with my speech.

 

Hook 3

I am not alone. There are many who are like me.

I am not your enemy unless you came to fight me.

I'm proud of who I am, and who I might be.

Burden me with your labels, but I will break free.

I am not alone. There are many who are like me.

I am not your enemy unless you came to fight me.

I'm proud of who I am, and who I might be.

Your cages won't work. I will break free.

 

Bridge

I aint just talking them, I'm talking to us.

Looking lost still sitting on the back of the bus

Of opportunity. You're soon to be obsolete.

You can't expect to win if you can not compete.

And I aint talking about your jumpshot player.

Gotta score another way if the dunk's not there.

Do better than get by, get over.

But first, we gotta get sober.

 

Hook 4

I am not alone. There are many who are like me.

I am not your enemy unless you came to fight me.

I'm proud of who I am, and who I might be.

No bond can hold me. I will break free. 

I am not alone. There are many who are like me.

I am not your enemy unless you came to fight me.

I'm proud of who I am, and who I might be. 

Burden me with your labels, but I will break free 

I am not alone. There are many who are like me.

I am not your enemy unless you came to fight me.

I'm proud of who I am, and who I might be.

Your cages won't work. I will break free.

I am not alone. There are many who are like me.

I am not your enemy unless you came to fight me.

I'm proud of who I am, and who I might be.

No bond can hold me. I will break free.
