So True...

This is some excerpts of the lyrics of the rap song "Remember This" by NF. It is by far one of my favorite songs, mostly because of how true it really is.

handouts create lazy people I'm not impressed with You want something in life, then why don't you go and get it? Actions speak louder than words do, it's pretty quiet, isn't it? Look at the world we live in, defined by comment sections. Surround yourself with people that challenge how you think Not people that nod their head and act like they agree. Those people will cut you open just to watch you bleed, Always be yourself, not the person that you pretend to be! These people gon' tell you that you will never make it, Then when you do, they gon' say they knew you were goin' places. That's just how it works, next thing you know you'll be overrated, Hearing people say they miss the "old you, " it's crazy, ain't it? And perfect people don't exist, so don't pretend to be one. I don't need pats on the back from people for my achievements. When I die I wanna know that I lived for a reason, Anyone can take your life, but not what you believe in
...
don't take opinions from people that won't listen to yours. If money's where you find happiness, you'll always be poor. If you don't like the job you have, then what do you do it for? The cure to pain isn't something you buy at liquor stores. The real you is not defined by the size of your office. The real you is who you are when ain't nobody watchin'. You spend your whole life worried about what's in your wallet. For what? That money won't show up in your coffin! Yeah, anger's a liar, he ain't got no respect, I fell in love with my pain and I slept with my regrets. Happiness saw it happen, maybe that's why she up and left, Joy called me a cheater, said she ain't coming back. I've always had a problem with relationships, But that's what happens when you see the world through a broken lens. Mistakes can make you grow, that doesn't mean you're friends. Who you are is up to you, don't leave it up to them.
...
I heard that life's too short, don't let it pass you by. We waste a lot of time crying over wasted time It's not about what people think, it's how you feel inside. My biggest failures in life are knowing I never tried. I look at the world from a different angle. People change, even Satan used to be an angel. Think twice before you're bitin' on the hand that made you. Don't believe what you believe just 'cause that's how they raised you. Think your own thoughts, don't let them do it for you. Say you want a drink, don't wait for people to pour it on you. Cut out the lies, stay close to the people you know are loyal. Grab your own glass and fill it, don't let your fear destroy you.

(I edited some of the lyric excerpts to make it sound like someone is talking to you, not like lyrics. See the full lyrics here, and the song here.)

You can find that often in music, but most people don't pay attention. I like the ones that make me laugh, like bizkit rollin urban or some of the all I do is win remixes. Some of the language is really course though. But those guys can be serous, or sometimes really funny. And since I have 15s in my car sometimes its just the bass tracks are good, really bad part is they wont fit in my new car.
