Lyrics

Verse:

They say nothing last forever, hope that includes the struggle.

Overflowing tears in a puddle, better run for cover.

Apparently I'm in trouble, pain and misery seem like I'm seeing double.

Still gotta push, flex my mental muscle.

Darkness my surroundings, survivor of the habitat.

My skin only add to my endangerment, hmm imagine that.

Mom couldn't make a man, father used to beat me.

Sick and tired of the bullshit, confidence sleepy.

Only seeking love, but they say that I'm needy.

Just want more out of life and they label me as greedy.

Been alone for so long, just the company of silence.

Running to the streets, just thoughts of committing violence.

Nobody really cares, so why pay life attention.

Feeling like time is up and no hope for extensions.

No amount of persistence would even make a difference.

Clearly another lost soul, please forgive me for my ignorance.

Robbed from my childhood, forced to be a man.

To the back of the bus, forced to take a stand.

Hip hop gave me a voice, put a mic in my hand.

Patent a strategy, and came up with a plan.

Adapted to failure, transition to success.

Give everything my all, and nothing my best.

Reach the mountain top yet I won't rest.

Swear it ain't arrogance when I'm poking out my chest.

Hook:
(Kimi)

Submerged in the dark.

This way, that way, where do I start.

Doomed from the beginning, what sets me apart.

Is that I got heart - and I can finally see the light.

Childhood stolen, dreams completely gone.

How can I do right when I was brainwashed with wrong.

But a new found home gave me my throne - and I can finally see the light.

Verse:

Head held high cause I realize I'm the shit.

Rose from the gutter, difficult as it gets.

Humble beginnings, possess no regrets.

Traumatizing past but my future ain't set.

No where to go but up, looking forward to what's next.

The wool removed from sight, conscious mind damn right.

Reflection of the sun, shining brightly day or night.

Trapped with my eyes closed, but I can finally see the light.

So I give it back to the people.

Promote positivity but all they see is evil.

Complexion of skin, categorize as lethal.

Better start thinking before they make it illegal.

Only righteous vibes, can't pull me down.

Found the king within myself, invisible crown.

Nappy hair culture, symbolic to my roots.

Fist in the air, power to my troops.

I done been through hell and back, I ain't afraid.

My inner G everlasting, just my flesh in the grave.

Lion heart full of courage and brave.

Broke every chain, I'm no longer a slave.

Black and proud, January through December.

Suppress by oppression don't match my agenda.

Unity is power, ain't no contenders.

Welcome to the jungle, you know who King Simba.

Hook:
(Kimi)

Submerged in the dark.

This way, that way, where do I start.

Doomed from the beginning, what sets me apart.

Is that I got heart - and I can finally see the light.

Childhood stolen, dreams completely gone.

How can I do right when I was brainwashed with wrong.

But a new found home gave me my throne - and I can finally see the light.
