Kendrick Lamar’s Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers remains in constant rotation following its Friday release, and today, we’re back with another track for you – “Mr. Morale” featuring Tanna Leone, which also happens to boast production from Pharrell Williams, who K-Dot previously collaborated with on “Alright.”

Over the three-and-a-half-minute-long tune, listeners hear the father of two reflect on generational trauma and living life in excess, citing both R. Kelly and Oprah Winfrey as two famous faces that have been in close proximity to abuse throughout their own lives.

The album’s sixteenth track closes with a poignant quote from German writer and philosopher Eckhart Tolle, who reminds us, “People get taken over by this pain-body / Because this energy field that almost has a life of its own / It needs to, periodically, feed on more unhappiness.”

Other Lamar tracks that we’ve spotlighted this weekend include “We Cry Together” featuring Taylour Paige, “Silent Hill” with Kodak Black, and “Purple Hearts” featuring both Summer Walker and Ghostface Killah.

Lyrics

[Intro]
It was one of the worst performances I’ve seen in my life
I couldn’t sleep last night because I felt this shit–
Ooh, ah, ooh, ah
Ooh, ah, ah, ooh, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yee

[Verse 1: Kendrick Lamar]
Enoch, your father’s just detoxed, my callin’ is right on time
Transformation, I must had a thousand lives
And like three thousand wives
You should know that I’m slightly off
Fightin’ off demons that been outside
Better known as myself, I’m a demigod
Every thought is creative, sometimes I’m afraid of my open mind

[Chorus: Kendrick Lamar]
Shit on my mind, and it’s heavy
Tear you in pieces ’cause it’s way too heavy
My diamonds, the choker is heavy
More life to give on demand, are you ready?
Who keep ’em honest like us?
Who in alignment like us?
Who gotta heal ’em all? Us (Us)
When there’s no one to call

[Interlude: Sam Dew]
Don’t need no conversation
If it ain’t ’bout the business, shut the door now
Bitch, it’s a celebration
And if this shit ain’t bussin’, what’s it for now?

[Bridge: Tanna Leone]
Steppin’ out when the weight lifts
Floatin’ on ’em (Ooh-ooh-ooh, da-da)
Floatin’ on ’em (Float, float, ooh-ooh-ooh, da-da)
Floatin’ on ’em (Float, float, ooh-ooh-ooh, da-da)
Floatin’ on ’em (Float, ooh-ooh-ooh, da-da)
Steppin’ out when the weight lifts
Floatin’ on ’em (Ooh-ooh-ooh, da-da)
Floatin’ on ’em (Float, float, ooh-ooh-ooh, da-da)
Floatin’ on ’em (Float, float, ooh-ooh-ooh, da-da)
Floatin’ on ’em (Float, float, ooh-ooh-ooh, da-da)

[Verse 2: Kendrick Lamar]
Uzzi, your father’s in deep meditation
My spirit’s awakened, my brain is asleep
I got a new temperature
Sharpenin’ multiple swords in the faith I believe
I think about Robert Kelly
If he weren’t molested, I wonder if life’ll fail him
I wonder if Oprah found closure
The way that she postered the hurt that a woman carries
My mother abused young
Like all of the mothers back where we from
SSI bury family members
At the repass, they servin’ Popeyes chicken
What you know about Black trauma?
F&Ns, kickin’ back is another genre
Tyler Perry, the face of a thousand rappers
Using violence to cover what really happen
I know somebody’s listenin’
Past life regressions to know my conditions
It’s based off experience
Comma for comma, my habits insensitive
Watchin’ my cousin struggle with addiction
Then watchin’ her firstborn make a million
And both of them off the grid for forgiveness
I’m sacrificin’ myself to start the healin’ and…

[Chorus: Kendrick Lamar]
Shit on my mind and it’s heavy
Tear you in pieces ’cause it’s way too heavy
My diamonds, the choker is heavy
More life to give on demand, are you ready
Who keep ’em honest like us?
Who in alignment like us?
Who gotta heal ’em all? Us (Us)
When there’s no one to call us (Us)

[Outro: Tanna Leone, Kendrick Lamar, Eckhart Tolle]
Say, “Hydrate, it’s time to heal”
Say, you’re frustrated, I can feel
Huddle up, tie the flag, call the troops, holla back
Huddle up, tie the flag, call the troops, holla back
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
People get taken over by this pain-body
Because this energy field that almost has a life of its own
It needs to, periodically, feed on more unhappiness
