Kendrick Lamar - Sing About Me, Iím Dying of Thirst (Lyrics - Paroles)
[Intro]
When the lights shut off
And its my turn to settle down
My main concern
Promise that you will sing about me
Promise that you will sing about me

I said when the lights shut off
And its my turn to settle down
My main concern
Promise that you will sing about me
Promise that you will sing about me

[Verse 1]
I woke up this morning and figured Iíd call you
In case Iím not here tomorrow
Iím hoping that I can borrow a piece of mind
Iím behind on whatís really important
My mind is really distorted
I find nothing but trouble in my life
Iím fortunate you believe in a dream
This orphanage we call a ghetto is quite a routine
And last night was just another distraction
Or a reaction of what we consider madness
I know exactly what happened
You ran outside when you heard my brother cry for help
Held him like a newborn baby and made him feel
Like everything was alright
And a fight he tried to put up, but the type
Of bullet that stuck had went against his will
As blood spilled on your hands
My plans rather vindictive
Everybodyís a victim in my eyes
When I ride its a murderous rhythm
And outside became pitch black
A demon glued to my back whispering, ďGet emĒ
I got em, and I ainít give a fuck
That same mentality I told my brother not to duck
In actuality its a trip how we trip off of colors
I wonder if Iíll ever discover
A passion like you and recover
The life that I knew as a youngín
In pajamas and ?

Dumb niggas like me never prosper
Prognosis of a problem child
Iím proud and well devoted
This piru shit been in me forever
So forever Iímma push it, wherever whenever
And I love you cause you love my brother like you did
Just promise me youíll tell this story when you make it big
And if I die before your album drop I hope Ė

[Hook]
Promise that you will sing about me
Promise that you will sing about me

I said when the lights shut off
And its my turn to settle down
My main concern
Promise that you will sing about me
Promise that you will sing about me

[Verse 2]
You wrote a song about my sister on your tape
And called it section .80, the message resemble Brendaís Got a Baby
Whats crazy was, I was hearin about it
But doubted your ignorance, how could you ever
Just put her on blast and shit
Judging her past and shit

A nigga behind me right now asking for ass and shit
And Iímma need that 40 dollars even if I gotta
Fuck, suck and swallow in the parking lot
Cause I was ? and followed by a married man, a father of three
My titties bounce on the cadence of his tingling keys
Matter of fact he my favorite cause he tip me with Eís
He got a cousin named David and I seen him last week
This is the life of another girl damaged by the system
These foster homes, I run away and never do miss em
See, my hormones just run away and if I can get em back
To where they used to be then Iíll probably be in the denim
Of a family gene that show women how to be woman, or better yet a leader
You need her to learn something, then you probably need to beat her
Thatís how I was taught
Three niggas in one room, first time I was tossed
And Iím exhausted
But fuck that ďSorry for your loss shitĒ
My sister died in vain, but what point are you trying to gain
If you canít fit the pumps I walk in?
Iíll wait
Your rebuttal a little too late
And if you have a album date, just make sure Iím not in the song
Cause I donít need the attention bring enough of that on my own
And matter fact did I mention that I physically feel great?
A doctorís approval is a waste of time, I know Iím straight
Iíll probably live longer than you and never fade away
Iíll never fade away, Iíll never fade away
I know my fate, and Iím on the grind for this cake
Iímma get or die trying, Iím eyeing every male gender with intentions of buying
You lying to these motherfuckers, talking about you can help with my story
You can help me if you sell this pussy for me, nigga
Donít ignore me niggaÖ

[Hook]
When the lights shut off
And its my turn to settle down
My main concern
Promise that you will sing about me
Promise that you will sing about me

I said when the lights shut off
And its my turn to settle down
My main concern
Promise that you will sing about me
Promise that you will sing about me

[Verse 3]
Sometimes I look in a mirror and ask myself
Am I really scared of passing away
If itís today I hope I hear a
Cry out from heaven so loud it can water down a demon
With the holy ghost till it drown in the blood of Jesus
I wrote some raps that make sure that my lifeline
Rake in the cent of a reaper, ensuring that my allegiance

And if Iím doomed, may the wound
Help me mother be blessed for many moons
I suffer a lot
And every day the glass mirror get tougher to watch
I tie my stomach in knots
And Iím sure not why Iím infatuated with death
My imagination is surely an aggravation of threats

Cause the tongue is mighty powerful
And I can name a list of your favorites that probably vouch
Maybe cause Iím dreamer and sleep is the cousin of death
Really stuck in the scheme of, wondering whem Iímma rest
And youíre right, your brother was a brother to me
And your sisterís situation was the one that put me
In a direction to speak of something thatís realer than the TV screen

Her personal life, I was like ďit need to be told
Cursing the life of 20 generations after herĒ so
Exactly would have happened if I hadnít continued rappin
Or steady being distracted by money drugs and four
Fives, I count lives all on these songs
Look at the weak and cry, pray one day youíll be strong
Fighting for your rights, even when youíre wrong
And hope that at least one of you sing about me when Iím gone
Now am I worth it?
Did I put enough work in?

[Hook]
Promise that you will sing about me
Promise that you will sing about me

I said when the lights shut off
And its my turn to settle down
My main concern
Promise that you will sing about me
Promise that you will sing about me

[Skit]

(Dying of Thirst)

Tired of running
Tired of hunting
My own kind
But retiring nothing
Tires are steady screeching, the driver is rubbing
Hands on the wheel, who said we buzzing?
Dying of thirst
Dying of thirst
Dying of thirst

Dope on the corner
Look at the coronoer
Daughter is dead
Mother is mourning her
Strayed bullets, AK bullets
Resuscitation was waiting patiently
But they couldnít, bring her back
Who got the footage? channel 9
Cameras lookin, itís hard to channel your energy
When you know youíre crooked
Banana clip split his banana pudding
Iím like Tre, thatís Cuba Gooding
I know Iím good at
Dying of thirst
Dying of thirst
Dying of thirst

How many sins?
Iím running out
How many sins?
I lost count
Dreams are balled in like Spaulding
But only shotty bounce
The reaper calling
Iím cottonmouth
Money is power, yours is ours
Lay with a snitch, die with a coward
Hope we get rich, hope we can tower
Over the city with vanity with the music louder
The same song
A black flower
Iíll show you how to
Dye your thirst
Dye your thirst
Dye your thirst

What are we doing?
Who are we fooling?
Hell is hot, fire is proven
To burn for eternity, return of the student
That never learned how to live right just by how to shoot it
Tired of running, choirs is humming

Now back to business, loading the guns in
Back of the Buick, your hood is viewed
And the beef is bubbling
Itís no discussion, hereditary
All of my cousins
Dying of thirst
Dying of thirst
Dying of thirst

Too many sins
Iím running out
Somebody sinned
Me a wealth of the draught
See, all I know, is taking notes
On taking this life for granted
Granted, if he provoke
My best days, I stress days (Lord forgive me for all my sins for I not knowÖ)
My best days, I stress days
Say ďFuck the world,Ē my sex slave
Money, pussy and greed was my next crave
Whatever it is, know its next grave
Tired of running, tired of running
Tired of tumbling, tired of running
Tired of tumbling
Back once my momma say
ďSee a pastor, give me a promise


You dying of thirst
You dying of thirst
So hop in that water, and pray that it worksĒ
