lyrics

(Intro)

(1st Verse)

I have a youth to feed, that's why I'm on the road,
Appearances can be deceiving, believe me, I should know,
Judging by what you see on the surface, you would never know,
About the pain and the suffering lurking deep within my soul.

'Cos I've had enough-my cup runneth over until it overflows,
Regurgitating flows over rhythms until I overdose,
Delivering killer lyricism until I'm comatose-
Until the Babylonian system is overthrown.

The younger generation is over-exposed and overgrown,
Influenced by the media, but then again, I suppose,
If you don't know any better, that's how the story goes.
And if the truth be told, I know I shouldn't smoke weed or drink liqour,

But when I'm buzzin' I'm in the zone,
Dropping that knowledge for everybody in the 'hood to know,
If only you had been willing to read a book you would've known
And you can tell I mean what I'm saying, you feel it when I flow.

(Chorus)

See me rise, from the ashes of the fire,
Cah, the passion and desire inside of me never dies,
The light I carry inside of my heart will shine bright,
Illuminating the sky on perilous dark nights!
(I said)
See me rise, from the ashes of the fire,
Cah, the passion and desire inside of me never dies,
The light I carry inside of my heart shine's bright,
Illuminating the sky on perilous dark nights!

(2nd Verse)

I said, see me rise, from the ashes of the fire and bounce back,
Stronger than ever, forever aspire to be the greatest alive,
There's no mistaking my rhymes for anybody else's
I'm way ahead of my time, forever deh pon ah grind.

I'm riding on the money train until the end of the line,
And hanging out on the corner until the end of the night,
Still I'm wondering why,
I'm on a rocky road when I'm reading all of the signs,

But am I reading them right,
In order to be able to decipher the meaning of life?
Enlightened, the very essence of my being is I,
Your frightened, blind, unable to see through the light,

Covering up your lack of self-esteem with meaningless lies,
Your on a meaningless hype, that's why i reach for the stars, you only reach for the sky
'Nuff o' dem are licky,licky, becoming greedy and die,
And my slice of the pie is all I need to survive.

(Chorus)

(Outro)
