lyrics

As soon as Smoove sent it, my head start to knocking
I ain't talking dance moves, I'm thinking how they out pocket
I'm watching
Ducking and dodging
Peaceful protestors while I march in the riot
3-piece suit while I'm fighting Goliath
Friendly game of fetch only feel safe with the lions
They say a good tree can't bear no bad seeds
But I barely see any tree of good
They try to rip out great and replant our fate
They disguised our love and dressed it as hate
Now they picture is painted and the image is tainted
Now our weapon of choice is voice of complaining
Lord, forgive me for what I'm about to do
Lord, forgive me for what I'm about to do
In these streets now
Fully loaded now
War ready now
Let's get together and let's tear this bitch down

How long, how long, will we wait for our time to come?
And our song, our song, is too hard to sing
Will it ever bring the dawn?

Blinded
Lacking in the faith part
Face paint, war-ready, Braveheart
It's about to get dirty, no safeguard
Stronger then I ever been, what you think I pray for?
I see the fire on the street burns
I'm walking in the flame like I don't feel nothing
And I'm gonna fight the fight until justice in our sight
Until these wrongs are turned right, until these kids is free to fly they kites
Freedom is all I really ever wanted
Waving my flag and it got my symbol on it
No surrender, it means victory!
Yeah, victory
Scream "Victory!"
Champagne toast with me
I got that flaming sword and it's close to me
And war-ready
Brave, ready
Go against me and I promise you ain't really ready
Promise you ain't really ready even if the devil goes against me

How long, how long, will we wait for our time to come?
And our song, our song, has been lost

Hail to the victory
I see his eye is on the sparrow
Got the fire in my spirit
Toast the spirits in the air tonight!

How long, how long, will we wait for our time to come?
And our song, our song, has been lost

Hail to the victory
I see his eye is on the sparrow
Got the fire in my spirit
Toast the spirits in the air tonight!
