【Cole通过这首歌讲述了自己从男孩成长到男人的心态变化。在outro中,Cole讲述了他的朋友James的故事。James在一场街头火拼中被枪杀,而Cole当时并没有选择留下,而是慌忙跑回了家。当最后发现James死于街头时,Cole感到非常内疚。】
[Intro]
我的直觉告诉我世界将会变得更好
My intuition is telling me there’ll be better days
没错,我的直觉告诉我世界将会变得更好
Yeah,my intuition is telling me there’ll be better days
我喜欢这个调调~
I like this tone—

[Verse 1]
耶,我的直觉告诉我这世界将会变得更好
Yeah, my intuition is telling me there’ll be better days
我发现每当我静坐冥想的时候
I sit in silence and find whenever I meditate
我的恐惧会逐渐消散,泪水会渐渐蒸发
My fears alleviate, my tears evaporate
而我的信念不会偏离,灵感没有期限
My faith don’t deviate, ideas don’t have a date
随着我的每一次呼吸,我都在变得更加强大
But see I’m growing and getting stronger with every breath
每一步的前进都在拉近我与天堂之门的距离
Bringing me closer to heaven’s doors with every step
就像我所说,我现在心态平静,不再惧怕死亡的降临
As we speak I’m at peace, no longer scared to die
大多数人都不是真正的信奉上帝,所以他们畏惧死亡
Most niggas don’t believe in God and so they terrified
要么是这样,要么就是他们只是害怕堕入地狱
It’s either that or they be fearing they gon’ go to Hell
恳求上帝的原谅-上帝,我已心疲力竭(求您了,我想去天堂)
Asking the father for forgiveness—God, I’m overwhelmed (Please God, I want to go to Heaven)
仿佛上帝就像掌控监狱的那些白人一样满怀恶意,另眼相待
As if he’s spiteful like them white folks that control the jail
我相信如果上帝真的存在,他绝不会对任何人妄下断语
See I believe if God is real, he’d never judge a man
因为他了解我们的一切,因此他会理解我们的所作所为
Because he knows us all and therefore he would understand
是无知与愚昧让我们自相残杀
The ignorance that make a nigga take his brother’s life
是苦难与痛苦让他对自己的妻子拳脚相加【在这段verse中,Cole主要想告诉大家,那些伤害他人的兄弟们真正需要的是帮助和引导,而不是惩罚。上帝也会理解的。】
The bitterness and pain that got him beating on his wife

[Hook]
我知道你在极力通过笔尖寻求改变【在这里,Cole通过笔尖的滑动(pen glide)喻指两件事,一是Cole之前极力想通过签约来拥有财富。二是Cole想用自己写下的歌词成为最著名的rapper。】
I know you desperate for a change at the pen glide
但真正的成长源于内心
But the only real change come from inside
但真正的成长源于内心
But the only real change come from inside
但真正的成长源于
But the only real change come from—
在墓碑旁或在铁窗内才能看到人们真正动情的眼泪
In cemeteries or in chains I see men cry
但真正的成长源于内心
But the only real change come from inside
但真正的成长源于内心
But the only real change come from inside
但真正的成长源于
But the only real change come from—

[Verse 2]
耶,这是我选择的信仰:耶稣像在我的颈上被罪恶冻结【A Jesus piece是指cole戴的项链上的耶稣头像坠饰,因为镶有钻石,所以像被冻住一样闪闪发亮。这个耶稣像看到过许多cole不为人知的罪恶,因此也“冻住”了他对自己信仰的怀疑。】
Yeah, my chosen religion: Jesus piece frozen from sinnin’
当我胡作非为之时,希望上帝能理解我的真正意图
Doin’ dirt hoping to God He know my intentions
在我入棺之前希望看到的是无尽的财富
To see a million ‘fore I see a casket
我有一个出生便可能成为独生子的孩子即将降生【bastard这里指生于未结婚父母的孩子。cole怕他的罪恶会使孩子的妈妈离他而去。】
I got a baby on the way know he gon’ be a bastard
我的生活节奏快如直线竞速赛,那绿油油的现金味道怎么样
I’m living fast like I’m in a drag race, how that cash taste
在高中的时候,我的球技可是十分了得
When I was a senior I was ballin’ on my classmates
有人向我的车开了三枪,一枪击中了油箱
Niggas put three bullets in my car one hit the gas tank
知道我有天使的守护,我注定该被光环环绕【Cole想说嫉妒已经成为街头最大的祸源,他差点就因为球技高超就被射杀。】
Know I got a angel cause I’m supposed to have a halo
现在,我的生活方式注定会通往联邦监狱
Right now, my lifestyle destined for a federal facility
因为我可以放飞鸟儿,让它们自由飞翔【Cole的很多朋友都在监狱关着,像被关在笼子里的鸟儿,无法飞翔。一块可卡因经常被毒贩暗指成bird,这里的birds fly也可能是贩毒的意思。】
For my ability to make them birds fly
恶魔们想要飞到比鸟儿的视野还要高得地方
Fiends wanna get higher than a bird’s eye view
那我又何德何能去告诉别人该怎么做呢?
And who am I tell a nigga what to do?
我只是供货,一切都是生意
I just supply, it’s economics
我的生意并不需要西装革履
My business ain’t got the suit and tie
身上一直配着一把枪,别人都在觊觎我所拥有的一切
Keep a pistol at all times, niggas want what’s mine
兄弟,我不会轻易施舍,我走到今日,付出了太多
I can’t oblige dog, I work too hard
所以谁想抢走它,那就去问问上帝吧:我要继续奋斗了!【refered to god意思是他们会被残忍地杀害,接着上帝会去决定如何处置他们。】
So reach for it, get referred to God; I’m going hard nigga

[Hook]
我知道你在极力通过笔尖寻求改变
I know you desperate for a change at the pen glide
但真正的成长源于内心
But the only real change come from inside
但真正的成长源于内心
But the only real change come from inside
但真正的成长来自
But the only real change come from—
在墓碑旁或在铁窗内才能看到人们真正动情的眼泪
In cemeteries or in chains I see men cry
但真正的成长源于内心
But the only real change come from inside
但真正的成长源于内心
But the only real change come from inside
但真正的成长来自
But the only real change come from—
[Verse 3]
耶,挥霍无度的年轻人们,我已经找到一种新的武器
Yeah, prodigal son, got a new gun,
这武器永远不会打光弹药,最近我也在一直磨炼我得技巧【通过gun来喻指Hook中的pen glide。Cole现在有了新的武器(pen),而墨水永远不会耗尽。】
This one don’t run out of ammo ,lately been working on my handles
当我成为明星之后,还能继续保持本真
Can I ball, become a star, and remain my self
如果我跌倒,拍掉尘土继续出发
If I fall, dust it off and regain my self
去他妈的,他们才不知道我受过的所有痛楚
Fuck ’em all, they don’t know all the pain I felt
我现在怀有敬畏之心,经历过这一切名利之后,我感到我已逐渐成熟
I’m in awe, after all the fame I felt I evolve
我不再埋葬恶魔,我将成为盛满真理的容器
I no longer bury demons, I be a vessel for the truth
直到我难以呼吸之时,我还会继续歌唱
Until I’m barely breathing, I’m singing

[Bridge: Ari Lennox & J. Cole]
成长是生活点滴的真谛
Life is all about the evolution
我放弃,我屈服,我后退一点点
I give up, I give in, I move back a little
我快活,我敬畏,现在我退的更多
I live up, I look up, now I’m back for more
你可以继续梦想,但不要忽视行动
You can dream but don’t neglect the execution
我放弃,我屈服,我后退一点点
I give up, I give in, I move back a little
我快活,我敬畏,现在我退的更多
I live up, I look up, now I’m back for more
有人曾告诉我人生苦短
Time is short that’s what somebody told me
我放弃,我屈服,我后退一点点
I give up, I give in, I move back a little
我快活,我敬畏,现在我退的更多
I live up, I look up, now I’m back for more
短到难以陪伴你的兄弟
Too short to keep following your homies
我放弃,我屈服,我后退一点点
I give up, I give in, I move back a little
我快活,我敬畏,现在我退的更多
I live up, I look up, now I’m back for more

[Verse 4]
追忆以前的时光,当时大家还在用拳头来决定胜负
I reminisce back to a time where niggas threw they hands
而现在谁要从后备箱拿出枪,我们就只能抱头鼠窜
All of a sudden niggas pop a trunk and then we scram
时刻手握扳机的生活让小屁孩明白
Finger on trigger make a little nigga understand
最终成为“男人”之后的世界是多么的残酷
What it’s like to finally be the motherfuckin’ man
懦夫看到手里的枪顿时充满了力量
Eyes wide that’s from the power that the coward feels
人们单单因为女人,金钱和缺少尊重就丢掉性命
Niggas die over bitches ,disrespecting, dollar bills
流血复仇会让城市变为战场
Bloodshed that turned the city to a battlefield
我认为这是毒药,你们却说这才是真实(啪,啪,啪,啪)
I call it poison, you call it real (pop, pop, pop, pop)
你们就是这么想的吗?
That’s how you feel?

[Verse 5]
枪声四起,大家都不知所措
Pistols be poppin’ and niggas drop in a heartbeat
如蟑螂般四散,一具尸体倒在了地上
Scattered like roaches, a body laid on the concrete
尸体就那样横在了地上
Body laid on the concrete
快看,有人倒在了地上
Look, somebody laid on the concrete
我可没时间看,绝不回头,因为我也在拼命逃跑
No time for that, ain’t no lookin’ back, cause I’m running too
我跑回了家,睡醒之后看到早间新闻
I made it home, I woke up and turned on the morning news
克服了一种难以解释的感觉
Overcame with a feeling I can’t explain
因为被杀害的是我的兄弟James,他才22岁啊
Cause that was my nigga James that was slain, he was 22
(昨晚大概在…)他才22岁啊
(Last night at around…) He was 22
(22岁黑人男性,嫌犯…)
(22 year old black male, suspect, poor…)

[Outro]
(兄弟,我向上帝发誓)
(I swear to God bruh)
我们今天聚集在这里
We’re gathered here today…
(我向上帝发誓)
(I swear to God)
来哀悼James McMillan Jr的死亡
To mourn the life of James McMillan Jr
(我向上帝发誓—哥们,我要杀了那些混蛋)
(I swear to God—nigga, I’mma kill them niggas man)
一次悲剧,又一个黑人社区的悲剧
A tragedy, another tragedy in the black community
(我跟你保证,哥们)
(I promise you bro…)
各位,我们必须振作起来
We got to do better, people
22岁啊,这孩子还太年轻
22 years old, this boy was too young
(我向你保证,哥们,我要杀了这些混蛋)
(I promise you bro, I’mma kill them niggas yo…)
我们的吊唁与祈祷会传达到他的家中
Our condolences go to his family, our prayers
(我要自己杀光这些混蛋…)
(I’mma kill them niggas myself…)
我们知道他已经在一个更好的地方了
We know he’s in a better place
我们知道他已经在一个更好的地方了
We know he’s in a better place
但女士们,先生们,这一切都该停止了
But this has got to end, ladies and gentleman
现在我们必须团结起来,这,这是无法用语言形容的力量
We’ve got to come together, this is—this is beyond words
我想用一段致辞来开始这场祭奠
Now I’d like to open this ceremony with a verse fro—
