President Carter Lyrics

President Carter

[Verse 1]
Sitting on the world, I got life in my hand
So these days I try to think twice when I can
Money on my mind as God as my witness
Love don't live here and it don't even visit
I do this for my Uptown...

    You need to listen to the words more carefully. We all sit on the world everyday with our life in our hand you don't understand how much that's important so I think twice when I can, Money is always on our minds and god sees it, so blinded by greed love don't even visit. The uptown politicians cant decide what americans chase so they send lil wayne to save the American race because who we idolize matters and they're gonna give it to us, you don't need to waste a gallon of water you could walk in the kitchen and find a pot to piss in, we'll act like an asshole until our families left us, sometimes so much we'll be the ones dead, missing. Lil waynes a monster he plays to our inner most desires through this music, were so easy to play with were like mechanisms. The future is always changing so put the past away, we got an appetite for disaster so we'll just keep putting it in play, we can literally change the world from one day to the next if we really wanted to, tomorrows not worried about the days of our lives. we can either get with the times or be left behind so grow the fuck up, when shit gets deep don't be afraid dive, you could let your sorrows drown you til the end of your time. If you really want to listen to music about death and destruction and make that about your life he'll give it to you, used to be you had to pay to do that to yourself, now he'll just let you download it from home you filthy scumbags. Your dead on the earth like brown grass, but I don't need to worry about you youll be back in the earth all I got to do is wait. You feed yourself bullshit all day from when your a kid in school eatin your brown bag food, that's the ugly truth and we all dance with it everyday. A lot of us think we got to be a big scary dude just to get anywhere but hes 140 pounds 5'6 and hes on top, fuckin the world up aint even fun you've got to stop. we are gorillas in suits fighting over things like the holy war saying were spiritual troop, fighting over what we think is real, drowning over arguing whats right and wrong, killing and killing, we don't even know what we've destroyed in the past, but the body count is the evidence. It's all we know and teach its what will keep on killing us

    Nobody gives you a chance, you gotta take chances
    Your family tree, I will break branches Cause I don't give a fuck, I put the ass in assassin
    Smoke you like a blunt then it's ashes to ashes
    The future is born, put the past in the casket
    If real shit is dead then nigga I'm a bastard
    Uh, appetite for disaster
    I want a full plate then another plate after

    If this song doesn't have any hidden message then why the title President Carter?
    I think there's a hidden message behind this song if it's played backwards.

    Well they say that red, black and white represents evil or the Illuminati, not sure why.
    but if so there is much of it here so it has something to do with them,
    the question is is he dissing or praising them, looking at the tattoo Fear God, the cross symbols he reference to MJ and the dropping of the bandanna and the painting showing Tupac he is dissing them.

    I think you as a person alone can know your true self, you and God and when you are looking at the mirror you have to be true to yourself. he is being that he acknowledges his shortcomings, and he also knows that God also knows them and he accepts that as truth, its about change, turning from the bad and self reflection.

    The first four to five lines of the song mean that he has made made a lot of mistakes growing up and as of late he tries to think twice when faced with certain situations. Money is on his mind he doesn't have time for love.

    Lil Wayne's songs are full of amazing lyrics. But he is just talking about how fucked up the world is and the the government...

    in the last message of the song, which I am not going to recite the full length, but it starts off gorillas in suits, what he is trying to say is basically what is so wrong with the world and our own government. I love this song so much it will never get old.

    i think it is more about him and his little crew of celebrities, and i dont think i have to tell you the specific crew, it is about him being so devoted to that crew and their "leader" that he would tell you their plans for this year to come and their partnership with politically powerful rulers of major countries around the world...just go to youtube and type in Lil Wayne itanimulli and from there you will see just what the song means and others as well, but you will mostly see what the "itanimulli's" (spell this word backwards when you're looking it up on youtube) big plan is... and also all you really have to do is really listen to the end of the song.

    I think that basically its a song where Lil wayne boasts about what he has and what he can do. He speaks about being the greAtest and he looks down on everyone else "detrimental on any instrumental" shows that his boasting about his lyrical genius

    He does not like or respect government or wars they cause (probably due to the way the government acted during katrina)
