from the ashes
3-15

//minor-chorus//
//from the ashes they left on the ground
comes the chosen for the hopeless as we startin’ to drown
everyday’s another chance with this gift i found
i just hope we live a better life next time around.// x2

1st verse:
ever feel like you try your hardest and end with nothin’?
i often wonder if i’m even meant for somethin’
i’m condemned to somethin’
it’s the pen and crushin’
bars that left me scarred
my hope is jarred
i’m descendant from afar
i’m not meant to live where paychecks are the value of my worth
i was a leader of revolutions before my birth
was it aligned stars or a broken condom that made this legend?
ill thoughts from a nerd rapper just to plague his nation
my words are scripted for your soul to understand
i’ll touch the lives of e’ryone, no matter what’s at hand
i speak for all the souls that are trapped in shadows
only we can free ourselves from our cage and shackles
just believe that you can do it, and then watch yourself rise
you can see that sh-t happen; just stop and close your eyes
it’s a world of opportunity; your own to control
so call the shots and deal the hands cause we grind too hard to fold

//chorus//
//can’t you see all the ruins that we’re building?
it’s behind the sword and shields that we’re wielding
this ain’t imperialism or darwinism
maybe it’s just me with this tree when i drown in wisdom
or maybe i’m the vision… x4//

2nd verse:
i could rap ’bout this and that, but i know i could do better
cl-ssmates rapped about the norm, but i knew better
i wanna break boundaries and set a higher standard
rap’s been a game to newbies and that’s why it’s slandered
my aim’s not for luxury; i’m tryna get my family out
finish with a suit and tie when the crew and i came hand me downs
a diploma’s all i got -but even bill became a billionaire
tony got that tiger; i guess success is in the air
it’s a dream, it’s a must; it’s the thing that i trust
but will it be the thing that leaves me suffering or stuck in dust?
my cards are comin’ to a kingdom, but i feel i’m ’bout to flush
bet my high school teachers think i won’t amount to much
bet my cl-ssmates labeled me a stoner loner goin’ nowhere
i’m a performer -not a poser- and ‘ll show ’em i have no fear
a voice in this universe; a kid who learned to flow
just lightin’ up y’all spirit before mine starts burnin’ slow

//minor-chorus//
//from the ashes they left on the ground
comes the chosen for the hopeless as we startin’ to drown
everyday’s another chance with this gift i found
i just hope we live a better life next time around.// x2

3rd verse:
see, we think we know it all; think we’ll make it last
reality is future generations will suffer from our past
we live it and they lived it; so we pointin’ all these fingers
world issues masked by athletes, suits, and us -singers
but hey, i’m tryna do this sh-t how it’s supposed to
or else a better world ain’t nothin’ we’ll be close to
the life of a starvin’ artist -be happy it never chose you
even van gogh would have an idea ’bout what we go through
all bullsh-t aside, i do this cause it’s worth it
a story without conflict makes the ending far from perfect
in a shallow pool, only the big fish get to surface
we’re not hermit or some vermin -this just life, it just worsens
this isn’t nourishment
it’s discouragin’ -so let’s burn this then
write up another endin’ for the next of kin
salvage mother earth who’s birthin’ them
father time will turn and then
we’ll be doc-mented by the future media
all they’ll say will be, “remember them”

//chorus//
//can’t you see all the ruins that we’re building?
it’s behind the sword and shields that we’re wielding
this ain’t imperialism or darwinism
maybe it’s just me with this tree when i drown in wisdom
or maybe i’m the vision… x4//

//minor-chorus//
//from the ashes they left on the ground
comes the chosen for the hopeless as we startin’ to drown
everyday’s another chance with this gift i found
i just hope we live a better life next time around.// x2
