Good Intentions Lyrics

I've seen a lot things in life that words can't explain
See we ain't any different but we just ain't the same
They never listen when we tell 'em, tell 'em
All they understand is venom, venom
People only use you when you let 'em, let 'em
Well...

    I think he's saying no matter what he does, no one understands him. He tries doing the right thing but no one listens. When he says, "if there's a man in the clouds, well tell me where the hell is he now", he's saying he doesn't feel God in the hard times in his life. I relate to this song so much and it makes me cry every time

    I think that he is saying that Althogh his intentions are good people still don't understand him unless he tell them the hard way .

    i think that Dappy is talking about how we as people just think that we are better than other people and would even care to think about others. he is talking about how people will try to be nice to the big shots out there that they will make it when we just let people walk all over us. we should start to help people instead of breaking them down

    i think that he is talking about how we are so easy to judge people and let people walk over us when we really want to fit in. People are letting us feel so bad for having good intentions(exactly like the song says). The world is telling us to stop what we are and change for them.

    I think Dappy is talking about event that took place between two spirits that is Satan and God.here Satan is trying to convince man that he is not different from God just that they are not the same and anytime he tries it men refer him to the garden of Eden (venom).he continued to say that someone is in trouble but God won't do anything about it (a man over board...)but Satan is having the good intentions to help. Listening to Beautiful Me is a same massage Satan is blaming God for not loving him and if he did he wouldn't have care about his mistakes to push him away

    I think that when Dappy sings, 'all they understand is venom, venom', he is referring to the shit we all say to each other. When he mentions the man in the sky, he's clearly interpreting God into this beautiful song. Dappy seemed to have believe in God but seemingly lost it as he grew older because he found out life is not what it seems at all. And he feels somewhat ashamed and pissed because he's surrounded by silence and because all he wants to do is good but how can he when people don't listen?

    I think in fisrt verse dappy is talking about the spirit i don't know if is talking about good spirit or bad why!bcoz he siad i've seen alot things in life that what can explain,what's that_see we ain't any difference but we just ain't the same it means all of us we are made by GOD but we are not the same why_bcoz they are spirit and we are humain being.they never listen when you tell them but all they understand is venom venom. all of us we knows very well that we can undestands to each other by our languages and by signs but he said all they understand is venom venom, what's the meaning of venom venom? that's where the secret it is. the so far he say if there's a man in the cloud tell me where the hell is it now,which maens he don't believe in what the coran and the bible told us? all of us we knows that the person is in the cloud is GOD but he said... if what the meaning of if we were in the school we knows that we us that ward only when you have some doubt which he have some doubt about the man in the cloud! where the hell is it now to whom is he asking to! so for me i think dappy he knows very well what is talking about. thanks my name's SMART DJABIR i hate this song.

    I think this song represents that even when something bads happening and when god cant help you, you can still do something about it.
