"Shackles"


[Verse 1:]
They sayin' wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, Mr. Walker
It's niggas out here hatin' and these bitches steady talkin'
They wanna see me in the sky, but rather view me in the coffin
'Cause they know this nigga's I'll as if I'm sneezin' and I'm coughin'

But we give 'em reminders
We wouldn't think twice when you critics define us
Got the lead in this race, so you can get behind us
They just tryna find us
I'm with a girl who got a ass, boy, the size of ehonda

That's big
You'ont know who that is
Street fightin' with my writin'
Go and grab your glasses
Or your magnifyin' glasses
See this shit I'm tryna to kick
I got love for everybody, but with a 10-foot stick

Oh and Poe, here I go, Jay-Z said, "bubble on the low"
This is my Comin' of Age, and in a second I'm a blow
To be the biggest in my city since that nigga Al Jarreau
I got these shackles all around with no fucking place to go

[Chorus:]
Somebody take 'em off
I got these cuffs on my brain
I'm just tryna maintain
I just wish someone would come and help me take 'em off (uh huh, uh huh)
'Cause I swear I'm tryna break 'em off

Now will somebody help me take 'em off
All these cuffs and these chains
'Cause I'm ready for a change
I've been tryin', but I swear it's hard to shake 'em off (uh huh, uh huh)
Now will somebody help me break 'em off

[Verse 2:]
Sayin' wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, Mr. Walker
Old friends start to hate, extended family steady talkin'
How he hooked up with a bunch of college kids out there in Austin
How Cardo and Sledgren got these women tryna stalk 'I'm

Oh no, swear I'm only focused on my promo
The way I turn bitches down, you would think that I was homo
Far from it!
I just know it's money to be made, my mom 'bout to retire
And I'm tryna have a babe

That's the reason why I'm focused and I'm workin' like a slave
I keep my trust in God when shit get hard
You know, you probably feel it too, that's why you stayin' on your guard
But when life throws you a curve ball, you knock it out the park

I'm just tryna spit the real, tell you how I feel
And before I die, not leave a thing unsaid
'Cause honestly rap needs another nigga stuntin'
The way I need a hole in my head
I'm Gerald Walker

[Chorus:]
I got these cuffs on my brain
I'm just tryna maintain
I just wish someone would come and help me take 'em off (uh huh, uh huh)
'Cause I swear I'm tryna break 'em off

Now will somebody help me take 'em off
All these cuffs and these chains
'Cause I'm ready for a change
I've been tryin', but I swear it's hard to shake 'em off (uh huh, uh huh)
Now will somebody help me break 'em off

Somebody take 'em off
I got these cuffs on my brain
I'm just tryna maintain
I just wish someone would come and help me take 'em off (uh huh, uh huh)
'Cause I swear I'm tryna break 'em off (uh huh, uh huh)

Now will somebody help me take 'em off
All these cuffs and these chains
I'm ready for a change
I've been tryin', but I swear it's' hard to shake 'em off (uh huh, uh huh)
Now will somebody help me break 'em off (break 'em off, break 'em off...)
