The Body - Lyrics

He blessed you with arms, He blessed you with legs
He blessed you with blessings for blessings they beg
And you got them all they went straight to your head
You never gave thanks the words stuck in your neck
All that blood that you bled, that ran through your veins
While the hands that you shake
Of these randoms and fakes
Who just rant and complain
About how standards have changed
That's what they think all us mans are the same
If you look at my hands, you can't see my future
They can't see potential and tell you who you are
But still I. put my faith in the stars
Even when this world is tryna take me apart
If the pain in my mind was scars on my skin
That you could read like bars from my pen
Would you show love? or would you be far from a friend?
Or would you see me as a piece of art to defend

It's the body, see it's the body
They don't care about the body of work
They just want a song it's what they prefer
They don't care about the body
It's the body
See they don't care about the body of work
They just want a song it's what they prefer

Fathers, we need Fathers
We need role models, more artists
More of us encouraged to take chances
Not chasing after money just follow what's in your heart then
You won't need to take these pictures
Baby girl they like 'em cos they want to get in your knickers
You're more than just your body that you recently discovered
How do you believe a boy who says he's different than the others?
I don't know, maybe he is
Or maybe you should focus on yourself and handle your biz
Those likes are addictive, you try to resist it
But this isn't how you had your life envisioned
If the pain in your mind was scars on your skin
That they could read like bars from your pen
Would they show love? or would they be far from a friend?
Or would they see you as a piece of art to defend

It's the body
They don't care about your mind they're just staring at your body
It's the body
See they don't care about your mind they're just staring at your body
It's the body
They just want to get a little piece of your body
It's the body, it's the body

Have you ever seen a body in a real life?
Had it send shivers down your spine
Had to stop yourself from crying
Lying, telling everybody that you're fine
You looked like you were sleeping
When they wheeled you in
I touched your face and it was so
cold where my hands would feel your skin
Your hands still rough cos you worked so hard
Learnt that from you, never hurt no heart
No pain in your face just peace
Don't worry about Mum, Dad I've got this you can sleep
21 grams. that's how much they say your soul weighs
I wish you could've seen old age
But I thank God that you didn't feel no pain
In your body

When the soul dies all you're left with is the body
All you're left with is the body
All you're left with is the body
When the soul dies all you're left with is the body

It's the body
