BLOOD.
Kendrick Lamar Lyrics


Is it wickedness?
Is it weakness?
You decide
Are we gonna live or die?

So I was takin' a walk the other day
And I seen a woman, a blind woman
Pacin' up and down the sidewalk
She seemed to be a bit frustrated
As if she had dropped somethin' and
Havin' a hard time findin' it
So after watchin' her struggle for a while
I decide to go over and lend a helping hand, you know?

"Hello, ma'am, can I be of any assistance?
It seems to me that you have lost something
I would like to help you find it"

She replied
"Oh yes, you have lost something, you've lost your life"

Is it wickedness?

Uh, Lamar stated his views
Uh, Lamar stated his views
Uh, Lamar stated his views
Uh, Lamar stated his views

Uh, Lamar stated his views on police brutality with that line in the song
Quote "and we hate the popo, wanna kill us in the street fo' sho'"
Oh please, ugh, I don't like it

I’ve grown up to Kendrick’s music, and each album directly seemed to correlate with me during the time it’s been released. Each of them took tome for me to fully grasp because I had to mature and wisen up to have a full grasp. That being said. I finally understood this album when I became saved. And that’s what it’s about: the struggles of being a Christian on earth.

The Christian struggle is self vs God, or flesh vs spirit. The body we live in rather pleases itself. We rather seek pleasure from other sources than God. And that’s because we’ve been cursed because of the original sin. Satan promotes self worship which Christians calls living in the flesh. This is living to do only what you want to do. Living in God is called being of the spirit. And those born again decides to ignore what their body, their flesh, their self wants and follow what the spirit of God tells them.



“ what happens on earth stays on earth” this means exactly that. The earth is corrupt. We humans are sinful. God wants to create a new earth because it’s contaminated. It’s like a virus that we are unaware of because we are accustomed to living in it. It’s like that saying that says we might be in the matrix, to the average, this is life. But to the believer they are woken out of slumber. the only people who can leave this earth are the people who choose him over self. Which means give up your earthly desires, your worries, fears, lust. Everything that is not of God and follow him. Because we are birthed into the sinful world. We will still sin while we here because that’s embedded in our DNA. The Bible says “ the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak”. But the blood of Jesus saves us from being a prisoner of self. When you understand that the battle between what you desire and what the lord desires is spiritual. That’s when you are saved. And everyday becomes a fight between battling your self, self being Satan. The battle between self and God is actually a battle between God and Satan. That includes what you do, to what you consume to your thoughts. If you are glorifying yourself, your are following Satan. There can’t be two masters. The only way we can escape this earth and the human condition is when we go to heaven. If we do not we will be damned.

Their are soo many more layers to this. But this is just the basis.

Here’s a scripture that directly correlated with this albums.

Galatians 5:19-26

19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

24 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.


I advise anyone to listen to the album with the information I gave you. It will really enlighten you once it clicks.

Is it wickedness?
Is it weakness?
You decide
Are we gonna live or die?

So I was takin' a walk the other day
And I seen a woman, a blind woman
Pacin' up and down the sidewalk
She seemed to be a bit frustrated
As if she had dropped somethin' and
Havin' a hard time findin' it
So after watchin' her struggle for a while
I decide to go over and lend a helping hand, you know?

"Hello, ma'am, can I be of any assistance?
It seems to me that you have lost something
I would like to help you find it"

She replied
"Oh yes, you have lost something, you've lost your life"

Is it wickedness?

Uh, Lamar…

[Intro: Bēkon]
Is it wickedness?
Is it weakness?
You decide
Are we gonna live or die?

[Verse: Kendrick Lamar]
So I was takin' a walk the other day
And I seen a woman—a blind woman
Pacin' up and down the sidewalk
She seemed to be a bit frustrated
As if she had dropped somethin' and
Havin' a hard time findin' it
So after watchin' her struggle for a while
I decide to go over and lend a helping hand, you know?
"Hello ma'am, can I be of any assistance?
It seems to me that you have lost something
I would like to help you find it."
She replied: "Oh yes, you have lost something
You've lost… your life."

[Outro: Eric Bolling & Kimberly Guilfoyle]

With that line in the song, quote:
"And we hate the popo, wanna kill us in the street fo' sho'."
Oh please, ugh, I don't like it

So I was takin' a walk the other day
And I seen a woman, a blind woman
Pacin' up and down the sidewalk
She seemed to be a bit frustrated
As if she had dropped somethin' and
Havin' a hard time findin' it
So after watchin' her struggle for a while
I decide to go over and lend a helping hand, you know?
"Hello, ma'am, can I be of any assistance?
It seems to me that you have lost something
I would like to help you find it"
She replied
"Oh yes, you have lost something, you've lost your life"

Damn.

People brush this off as just an intro song, but this is for real one of the best tracks of the entire record.

Man... I really slept on this album when it first came out. I’m older and wiser now and I have grown to truly appreciate this album, Kendrick and his incredible storytelling. This album gives me goosebumps. Please come back Kendrick, the world needs you 🙏
