Kid Cudi & Dot Da Genius
I hate when it rains... all I really do is sit on my ass
Thinking of the next scheme just to double my cash
If I ain't thinkin about cash, nigga I'm thinking bout' life
Making a change, no winners do the same shit twice
Rain dayz and the pain, just rest on my veins
Can't go to sleep, somebodys looking through my window pane
Mane, I swear I'm going catch em' but maybe I'm trippin like scarface
My minds playing tricks on me homie, will it
Rain, shit! I just wanna know where do' is
Is he safe, warm and out the elements, mommy let him come home
I think a niggas done doing wrong I get scared of the days when the soul will be gone
It's spoken word but thoughts never been spittin in vein
Seems like the only way to sunshine is through the hard rain
I need to find a path leading the change, ask God if he feels my pain
And please would you stop the Rain...
Please Stop The Rain
Ask God If He Feels My Pain
Grey clouds started forming,
Gathered around my father's homecoming,
When his soul, on this earth, was summoned.
I remember a white church,
And my lips had a salty taste
From the tears runnin' down my face.
Can't erase the hurt.
Watchin' my father's body lowered in dirt,
While my uncle and cousin passed too.
What's life worth?
If it rained,
Sometimes I would just sit there and cry.
At recess, didn't wanna play, I just wished I would die.
Rushed through my head back when I was eleven,
Praying and hoping that my dad had made it to heaven.
It was hard being the youngest,
And no one helped me.
Everybody seemed happy,
And no one felt me.
But regardless of the fact,
I did the best that I can.
Making the transition from boy,
Straight to a grown man.
But understand, I felt the shame.
And I feel the same, that God just needs...
To stop the rain.
Please Stop The Rain
Ask God If He Can Feel My Pain
Back then I was young,
Now I'm grown here to fend on my own.
I'm speaking and bringing the truth through this lyrical poem.
And it's hard cause these niggas can't see...
Open up your eyes you can recognize me.
I felt the rain like every other nigga did,
Nigga always slip and stand up so I slid.
It's part of the life,
While every thing seems trife.
And everything wrong very well may be right.
It's just confusing and some people can't handle.
There mind breaks down, and their hearts start to dismantel.
But I'm that boy to use the hand of evil dreams.
God realize that this life is way more then it seems.
It's just somthin you learn on the daily as your mind matures.
Can't ruin the life with a heart so pure.
And since I realize that things won't change,
God you can keep with the same.
Cause I'm a just deal with the rain!
I'm a Deal With The Rain
Tell God Just To Keep It The Same
