Lecrae – Rise 歌詞

I know it’s difficult, but
You know, the odds really are in our favour, man

Things just ain’t the same for gangsters
The whole world ‘s changed, everybody’s a stranger
All they do’s running round, saying bad things
Quit the law offenders, the click in vengure
And I didn’t seen too many teens chasing their dreams
End up blood in, contaminating the scene
And I didn’t lean on any words that she said
That she said, we said, look at him, he’s dead
See, we ain’t ever know Mark Luther King
Most of us probably couldn’t take much about a dream
We like our complex, ‘cause I can make a movie
With his arms stretched up with the AK’s and uzzy’s
So excuse me, I’m tryin’ to connect, a whole generation is raised by gangsters
Who probably never knew pops, had two packs
And all boom box, chilling in our tom socks
And place straights on a sided on the 64
And Snoop Dogg thought us how to roll a sticky drow
So if they wanna reach us with Jesus
They gotta do it better than scream in preaches
So homie, we don’t believe ya, we’ve seen grandmas,
Raw bodies, cold knees with heels
So we’re skeptical, it’s easier to believe
That there’s a Heaven for all than there’s a message
It’s hard to rise

Listen to the melody
Because we’re together

Now shut up and wonder, now you ain’t gotta ask
We both know the same page like a paragraph
And all music, and the talking and discussion
But it seems the radio has got it fine in playin’ substance
Listen, partner, they’re lying to us, they’re selling cars to us
They teach us how to be gang bangers and night shooters
I’ve been where you’ve been, seen what you’ve seen
Group up with old dawg, looking mean on the screen
But now it’s the street dream, a biggy it was still green
And the cash rolled everything around me, cream
The folks tryin’ make the hood life a good life
While they get the birds wishing us a good night
And some rappers teach us how to jam, check them
But I still haven’t heard a song about being movie directors
We ain’t your hood, man, we’ve been where you’ve been
Listen, I’ve been you’ve been better than here
Difference now is when we picked up the pen
And I sing you later, God has made us a better man
I’m a college graduate, yes I got to be role models
But daughters who do not inspire to be all models
You are not what the media shows you
God made you any roles for you
So you rise
