Do Better Lyrics by KID X


Looking through the mirror
I see the face of every man throughout the earth
And evidently come to strip it of it's worth
Look for ways to try and pimp it for a nickel and flourish
Then later deny having a hand in how it is written
I'm conflicted in my words
Do my best to never mince 'em or
Stand at a distance, pointing fingers
At the blurry reflection of this self-destructive way 
That I'm depicted

It's a gift and its a curse
Still, I'm yet to come to terms with the wisdom in these pearls
That glisten and obscure the optics of a being 
Who was once innocent and pure
With the thirst for knowledge 

When certain things cannot be taught
Need a different school of thought 
If you aim to cure what's toxic
My dreaming is through the roof
I'm flawed as a man, everything that needs healing 
Is the thing that I'm concealing
When I grip the paintbrush and explore
The many shades of my genetic make-up
Know I barely say much but in truth

I can tell you how I came up from the mud
All the times I could've given up
Spent way too many hours in the club
Ten thousand ain't enough
Progressing from when I was paranoid, I ain't know enough
Things change, count my blessings, yeah I woke up
And stop stressing about the pressures I have growing up
The streets say as a man you make your own luck
That's when I left to do better

If you knew better, you do better
Or stay in ignorant bliss to give you new measures
Tailor my life to turn me super hero
That's shoulder pads, a cape, a pair of buckle up boots
And a super ego

I've often wondered what the job of a black widow is
Managing the Hulk it gets intuitive
Fears of what happens if sun is getting real low suddenly fails her
And doesn't turn them human from her touch or her favour
Not enough hung banners in the rafters
What is consequence to mammoth?

Idols and privilege
Talent gets a pass male advantage
The birthright from demons in our past
I say this to say, I still believe Lady Zamar
And if it ricochets, it's proof of what I think about stars
To me, it's all the same I'm often told I'm taking it far
And if she's found her peace, it's nothing else but praise be Allah

I can tell you how I came up from the mud
All the times I could've given up
Spent way too many hours in the club
Ten thousand ain't enough

Progressing from when I was paranoid, I ain't know enough
Things change, count my blessings, yeah I woke up
And stop stressing about the pressures I have growing up
The streets say as a man you make your own luck
That's when I left to do better, do better
Do better, do better, do better

What you thought mattered just don't add up
When you know better you gotta do better
Do better, do better
Do better, do better, do better
What you thought mattered just don't add up (Do better, do better)
Now you know what you gotta do (Do better)
