    Father Time (Live on SNL)

    [Intro: Miles Teller]
    Once again... Kendrick Lamar

    [Verse 1: Kendrick Lamar]
    I come from a generation of home invasions
    And I got daddy issues, that's on me
    Everything time them four walls had taught me
    Them habits bury deep
    That man knew a lot, but not enough to keep me past them streets
    My life is a plot, twisted from directions that I can't see
    Daddy issues ball across my head, told me, "Bump a foul"
    I'm teary-eyed, wanna throw my hands, I won't think out loud
    A foolish pride, if I lose again, won't go in the house
    I stayed outside, laughin' was my friends, they don't know my life
    Daddy issues made me learn losses, I don't take those well
    Momma said, "That boy is exhausted," he said, "Go ____"
    If he give up now, that's gon' cost him, life's a bitch
    You could be a bitch or step out the margin," I got up quick
    I'm chargin' baskets and falling backwards, tryna keep balance
    Oh, this the part where mental stability meets talent
    This the part, he breaks my humility just for practice
    Tactics we learned together, sore losers forever, daddy issues

    [Chorus: Sampha]
    Early mornin' wake-ups, practicin' on day-offs
    Tough love, bottled up, no chaser
    Neat, no chaser, neat, no chaser
    Neat, no chaser, neat, no chaser

    [Verse 2: Kendrick Lamar]
    I got daddy issues, that's on me
    Lookin' for "I love you", rarely empathizin' for my relief
    A child that grew accustomed, jumping up when I scraped my knee
    If I cried about it, he'd surely tell me not to be weak
    Daddy issues, hid my emotions, barely expressed myself
    Men should never show feelings, being sensitive never helped
    His momma died, I asked him why he goin' back to work so soon?
    First reply, "Son, that's life, bills got no silver spoon"
    Daddy issues, bump everybody, get your money, son
    Trust yourself, trust nobody, only your momma'nem
    This made relationships seem cloudy, never attached to none
    So if you took some likings around me, I might reject the love
    Daddy issues kept me competitive, that's a fact
    I don't give a fuck what's the narrative, I am that _____
    When Kanye got back with Drake, I was slightly confused
    Guess I'm not mature as I think, got some healin' to do
    Egotistic, zero-given ____ and to be specific
    Need assistance with the way I was brought up
    What's the difference when your heart is made of ____
    And your mind is made of gold
    And your heart is made of _____, but it may weaken your soul?
    My homies ain't got a daddy, grow up overcompensatin'
    Learn somethin' 'bout bein' man, learn something' 'bout bein' gangsta
    I love my father for helpin' me to take off the gloves
    'Cause everything he said I ____ was everything I was
    And to my partners that figured it out without a father
    I salute you, may your blessings be neutral to your toddlers
    It's crucial, they can't stop us, you see the mistakes
    'Til then, I give the women a break, grown men with daddy issues

    [Chorus: Sampha]
    Early mornin' wake-ups, practicin' on day-offs
    Tough love, bottled up, no chaser
    Neat, no chaser, neat, no chaser
    Neat, no chaser, neat, no chaser
