The Climb Back

Song by J. Cole 
Produced by J. Cole 
Album: Lewis Street 
Released: 22 July 2020 

On “The Climb Back,” J. Cole raps about his journey rediscovering his love for rap. He also raps about a few of his traumatic life experiences and the things that some of his friends have endured.

Two days before releasing this song, Cole published an essay titled “The Audacity” in which he discussed several critical periods of his life and the persistent obligation within himself to achieve his goals. He specifically utilized the word ‘climb’ to describe how he advanced himself in each of these periods, which can be seen as a prelude to this song.

This and “Lion King on Ice” are the first two singles from Cole’s sixth studio album, The Fall Off. They were released together as Lewis Street.

Lyrics:

[Intro]
Are you doin’ this work to facilitate growth or to become famous?
Which is more important?
Getting or letting go?
You can do anything, anything you can do (You can do anything)
You can do anything, anything you can do (You can do anything)

[Chorus]
Everything come back around full circle
Why do lies sound pleasant but the truth hurtful?
Everybody gotta cry once in a while
But how long will it take ‘fore you smile?
This is that come back to life shit
My niggas pick me up and we gon’ light the city up as if the sun had the night shift
And paint the town red for my nigga found dead too soon (Bitch I’m back out-)

[Verse 1]
Yeah
To the left of that decimal, I need seven figures to play the joint
Turn up your decibels, peep how I decimate a joint
Check out my projects like them workers that Section 8 appoints
And you’ll see how I flipped, like exclamation points
My niggas shoot first as if they never played the point, more two guards
Enough straps to fill four U-Hauls
More death than World War II caused
Around these parts we pour the brown just to drown these thoughts
Of black corpses in county morgues, Lord, those images hauntin’
I ain’t been sleep yet, it’s ten in the mornin’
I’m sendin’ a warnin’, a problem with me is like the BET Hip-Hop Awards
I’m startin’ to see you niggas don’t want it
I’m sick of this flauntin’, from niggas I know for sho’ ain’t got mo’ dough than Cole
Trash rappers, ass backwards, tryna go toe to toe
We laugh at ya, staff strapped up on top the totem pole, to blast at ya
Bass masters, look how they tote a pole
Gotta know the ropes and the protocol
Or they gon’ for sho blow your clothes half off like a promo code
Made a lil’ tune called “Foldin Clothes,” and a nigga still ain’t known to fold
Under pressure, well you know what Cole do
Make a diamond, they just rhymin’, me, I’m quotin’ gold
One phone call get you canceled like a homophobe
In this PC culture, address me as the G.O.A.T.
Like they call Chief Keef Sosa, in my sectional like a fuckin’ three piece sofa
I’m known as the chosen one
Another dead body lay frozen, that’s how it go sometimes
When niggas weighin’ coke and not the pro’s and cons
Well I ain’t with that sleepin’ underground like a gopher, so I go for mines

[Chorus]
Everything come back around full circle
Why do lies sound pleasant but the truth hurtful (Yeah)
Everybody gotta cry once in a while
But how long will it take ‘fore you smile?
This is that come back to life shit
My niggas pick me up and we gon light the city up as if the sun had the night shift
And paint the town red for my nigga found dead too soon
Now I know why they call it blue moon (Yeah)

[Verse 2]
Survival at all costs, everyday niggas get logged off
Bodies get hauled off
Passin’ a funeral procession while holdin’ my breath in the car I thought
At times, it be feelin’ the devil be winnin’ but do that mean God lost?
Just got off the phone with my nigga, he back in the kennel, my dog lost
I brought him ’round close to me before but he
Became addicted to clout and all the hoes we’d meet
I slowly peeped jealousy on his breath, whenever he spoke to me
Like on the low, he feelin’ like in my shoes is where he supposed to be
I tried to ignore the signs, but there in the back of my mind, it felt
Like lettin’ a nigga come sleep on your couch and he eatin’ up all yo’ groceries
My nigga repeated this quote to me, I felt its potency
Said, “Most of these niggas gon’ hang themselves, just give ’em the rope and see”
Shit, I heeded that, and what got showed to me
Was screamin’ that, some niggas you gotta leave ’em back
Unfortunately we seen the trap
Niggas be on that demon clock resultantly
They fiend to clap as often as the Genius app misquotin’ me, uh
Meanwhile, I see that yo’ diamonds is glistenin’
I’m glad that you shinin’ but need I remind you my niggas is dimin’ and nickelin’?
Scrapin’ up whatever coin they can find, the pettiest crime they committin’ it
Just to get by for a limited time, the steepest of mountains they tryna climb
I’m here tryna find the derivative
You niggas don’t feel me, you see the clout
You don’t see the real me
If I was sick, you niggas wouldn’t heal me
That’s why I’m healin’ myself, gettin’ in tune with my God
Slowly revealin’ myself, buildin’ my wealth
A nigga touch mine, I’ma kill ’em myself, trust me

[Chorus]
Everything come back around full circle
Why do lies sound pleasant but the truth hurtful
Everybody gotta cry once in a while
But how long will it take ‘fore you smile?
This is that come back to life shit
My niggas pick me up and we gon’ light the city up as if the sun had the night shift
And paint the town red for my nigga found dead too soon
Now I know why they call it blue moon (Yeah)

[Outro]
Bitch, I’m back outside, nigga
I’m back outside
I’m back outside
Bitch, I’m back outside
Everybody mentions suicide prevention
Man, they even made a hotline
To call up when there’s tension but I got a question
What about a fuckin’ homicide?
Need a number for my niggas to call
Whenever there’s a urge to get triggers involved
Need a number for my niggas to call
Whenever there’s a urge to get triggers involved
