mankind ft. nova (aka supanova) * “owen hart”
[emcee(s): !llumin@te, sciryl, and nova (aka supanova)]
[producer(s): [?]]

[verse 1: !llumin@te]
rest in peace to my family tree with deceased roots
your name lives on until the day my receipts due
i ain’t mad at god, i saw the pain he released you from
i met my equal, about to make some sequels
for mankind, extend the line of my people
look ‘em in their eyes just to see you. might name him
regal, might name him james. if i have a baby
girl, maybe carol or rayne. just to know that our
blood and bone marrow’s the same, a full house ain’t
a home, family matters remain, but we’re never divided
if it was given, you better provide it. i looked that
child in the face—there’s no way we could ever deny it
the meek shall inherit the earth
that’s the reason crybaby was a blessing at birth
so respect’s due ‘cause nothing could make it less true
and i put that on my nephew

[hook: mankind] (x2)
i see that
flame in your eye, i feel that
pain from your heart, you got some things on your mind, i
i’ll write your name in the sky
[verse 2: sciryl]
i got a magic marker, a parachute, and a bag of chalk
f*ck it. jump in, use the sky as a pad to offer this
crockett jones, harold and the purple crayon
draw the clouds, get my “purple rain” on, fresh prince
jada’s kiss, 2pac play the whip
bad boys like martin nae nae out this b*tch—uh!
she said, “there’s no good men.” i said, “looking for
bad boys, you gon’ stay with the sh*ts. write your name in
the sky, take a page out the script. i see the rage in
your eyes, i feel the flames from your lips.” she smiled and said
“yeah, yeah, i’m kind of young, so i don’t have to panic
just seems like black men lack the passion, so i
find a nice white boy, then i have to sn*tch him. i hear
y’all talking, but y’all lack the action. y’all either athletes
or trapping, rapping.” i had to sit back, catch the flak
take them scars like captain jack ‘cause, really, even if
i had the facts about the ways we get harassed and trapped and masked
clapping back, we would still be going back*to*back
on the inside, i ain’t mean it, but told shorty, “have a
great weekend,” yeah, and walked away, thinking
don’t get your head clogged in great shame, caught up thinking
‘bout what they think and they say, make change
make mistakes and make way for the babies ‘cause
they may be the saviors, the world’s finna change
as they age. make a name for yourself. drought?
make rain. cold? make flames
put the lame sh*t aside, put your faith in your mind, know that
god is you, and put your faith in the god

[verse 3: nova (aka supanova)]
yeah, i’m trying not
to cry, i’m trying not to pray for your demise ‘cause, mommy
she wouldn’t like that, but f*ck it—you ain’t my child
i’ve been the bigger man, but f*ck it—i ain’t that now
been swallowing my pride for years, ain’t going down no more
right now, i’m proud, i pour moet to the ground, i put
loud in the air, i mourn all those gunned down
and all the moms who ain’t here, your pops gone too soon
all in the still of the night, her baby born too soon—true
i feel the pain, i’m an aries, a raging
bull in a cage, now i’m a monster, i’m caught
between a rock and a hard place, i’m wrastling with thoughts
this gun could go off both ways. i’m too passionate, dawg
but lost my passion for bars unless the cash was involved
i cannot ration ‘em off, i might just spaz on you all
i’m more ‘bout guns than them roses, i might just slash up your jaw
or just might crack you a smile. no, i ain’t laughing at all
bold*faced, stone*faced, n*gga, heart cold
only move with them nightwalkers and gargoyles
only talk with the old heads and young n*ggas
small victories, broke bread, take dumb pictures
the company i keep? i see the pain in their eyes
but it’s comfort when we speak. me? i feel their pain
gotta be kidding. i got siblings that’s estranged
my momma crying, lord knows i feel the rain, know i feel ashamed
