Blue October Lyrics
8. Any Man In America
I only note spending time away I only note the truth is spoken Best when brutally so honestly. I'll let you know you set The standards lyrically for me One single middle finger Say raise it up My speech will always be free Like Martin Luther King You had meaning to me Single handedly saving music starving industry A hip hop legend was skinned like invisible ink Like even though he was whiter than me He was the first to be colorless Speaking for all of us Then you let us into your family Mother father brother sister wife daughter Damn right in front of me That's when I miss my daughter desperately Your mocking bird puts dents in me While touring press and reliving my song hate me I was losing custody I never even saw that shit. How she played me And planned and sought it fit To turn that trick and financially she would benefit My first and probably only billboard hit Was gonna pay for my two year old's college I should have hid that shit So she couldn't spend that shit It took twenty years of working Just to earn that shit Now word for word I've listened, heard and I'm done. Done. [Chorus] Like you don't know. You act like you believe it. That you're in control. It's just your legal system though They don't think about you No they don't care about you. Now every man in America take back your control Like you don't know. You act like you believe it. That you're in control. It's just your legal system though They don't think about it No, they don't care about it Now every man in America take back your control. I kept my business quiet Just like my lawyer said. And I tried to focus on My anger and work instead. I was succeeding at self reliant But inside my soul is dead. I had to be the sole provider But not allowed to be the dad. Literally they took her from me. Legally they did! They did! But I'm not a fucking book So fuck your book and leaking I said fuck the judge. Fuck that county Fuck your family too. Yeah fuck everybody that took my baby girl, Blue I'm way too strong I work my ass off all day long. And I'm gone for months at a time And you keep sitting there in line Bitching "Come back home" I hate you, hate you god. And then you came back home And filed for another fucking divorce. I'm sick of her I'm sick of you I'm not sick, I'm lost up in my head. Any other man in American can get screwed just like me. [Chorus] You won't understand, probably never will. Listen slowly I'll let you know the deal Lying ass play the judge with your crying ass You had your nose wide open when you saw the cash. Grimy bitch growing tired of you trying shit. Women run the courts, men provide the chips. Well eat up bitch until you had enough bitch. But take my kids; you can kiss both my nuts bitch. Telling lies cause daddy's always on the road. But you the one fucking like a groupie at a show. Money hungry so you try to take my youngest from me. You a dummy honey I'll chase you across the country. Bring the drama to you mama and you mama's mama Cause we all know you chasing half the karma. Couple checks few houses and Gucci blouses You changing dicks like you changing outfits. Constitution now a day's got the daddies losing. Lot of fathers getting fucked by the constitution. [Chorus 3x]
