    Verse 1: Noname]
    Opportunity knockin', a nigga was out for coffee
    Inadequate like my window, the Grammys is way too lofty
    And I could stay here forever, I could die here
    I don't have to try here; Can I get my two sugars please?
    Jesus made an album, I'm still waiting in the line for cream
    She dream in techni-color, live black and white
    Opportunity knockin', a nigga just got her nails done
    Skeletons in my closet gon' open the door when Yale come
    They ain't gonna wanna see my silhouette rap
    He's fucking cognac, my smile in all black
    Mississippi vagabond; Granny gon' turn up in her grave
    And say, "My granny really was a slave for this?
    All your uncompleted similes and pages ripped
    You know they whipped us niggas; How you afraid to rap it?
    You went to heaven after so we could free them now
    Ain't no ocean floor when you can be a Yeezus now."
    [Hook: Eryn Allen Kane]
    Don't fear the light that dwells deep within
    You are powerful beyond what you imagine
    Just let your light glow
    [Verse 2: Noname]
    Seventeen moments and cloudy days on my snap
    Mysterious aberration, illuminated the trap
    My telefone-calications synonymous with the sunrise
    Mountains against the foreground forever me coming back
    I ain't gonna cry; the last time Ali marched Chicago
    Twenty four and a late mojo teaching me how to drive
    Whole world inside my rear view
    This feeling, me so alive
    This feeling, me so alive, enjoy the joyride
    Opportunity knockin', it's finally time to answer
    The doorbell was only broken cause auntie was fighting cancer
    And cigarettes on my mantle keep callin me by my first name
    Loving me when I'm lonely, pretending they really Noname

    At 0:30 you can start to hear the gradual what I feel is a sense of anger and disgust that never actually reaches its highest point especially when she she says "they really whipped us n**gas, how you afraid to rap?" and when I sing alone my facial expression automatically change and I stop taking breathes. It's so hard to explain but I love this song.

    Damn, this song makes me cry every time. Its so sad how some the greatest voices in the black community get the lowest amount of Acknowledgment in the music industry, but people like lil pump get millions for talking about drugs. Its sad man. Well, Besides Beyonce her voice is almost perfect.
