This Bitter Land Lyrics

This Bitter Land (《The Land》电影插曲) - Nas (奈斯)/Erykah Badu (埃里卡·巴杜)

Written by:Jongnic Bontemps/Nasir Jones/Erykah Badu/Steven Caple

 

This bitter land

 

Watered with my soul

 

The fruit it bears

 

Leaves me so cold

 

This bitter land

 

Does nothing for love

 

This bitter land

 

Brings pain from above oh

 

Running on the concrete across the train tracks

The devil is behind me

In the ghetto where's you'll find me

It's where I stays at

 

Cop shot us up he get a medal then retire

 

But it never will define me

 

Write a letter to the president

Whoever in control of the society

Tell 'em stop riding me

Stop driving us into a suicidal ideology

Tryna feed my seeds

Getting high on w**d study my degrees

 

Stay fly getting paper

With some dead white people faces

In the circle of spaces around the green

 

I'm lean taking percs as a bit of earth

Is a ni**a cursed am I blessed see what I mean

 

It's a test life is a test

 

Life is like a hood hard

 

Trying not to fall between the cracks

 

In the cracks it's so dark and the dark

 

Seems more appealing than the light in the land

Where you gotta fight

Catch a body in the night we need a plan

 

To survive to survive the land

Survive the storm when it comes through

 

Either you're busy living or busy dying

Look what it's come to

 

Look what it's come to so what you're gonna do

 

This bitter land is far too real

 

This bitter land it does not heal

 

Cause in the land skies are grey

 

But we fight the storms that come our way

 

A boy who strives to be a man

 

Must push to lead with all he can

 

Oh this bitter land

 

Oh bitter land

 

Oh oh oh oooh

This bitter land can't stop my fight

 

This bitter land

 

Look what it's come to

 

And I so what you gonna do

 

What you gonna do

My land
