Wa bona ntwana never give it up at all
Man up and stand up
Remember you started a long time ago
Ha gona sepe se se difficult at all
And if they got a problem let em know
(I guess its time to move on)
Wa bona ntwana never give it up at all
Man up and stand up
Remember you started a long time ago
Ha gona sepe se se difficult at all
And if they got a problem let em know
Let em know

[Verse 1: Reason]
I remember being poor
Not so long ago, scrubbing on my grandmama floor
Counting all the holes
That's been there since I was four
Wishing I could eat the chip on my shoulder
To make me strong
It was mean times with grandmoms
And my uncle Raymond
Had a steady day job
Blew it all and it paid off
Worst of all he got laid off
Washed up with no Sta-Soft
I got myself some education
Just so I don't stay starving
Cause I remember when they cut the power off
Fridge was empty anyway so nothing would go off
Living off primus and coal stove
Just to be warm
Fry some chicken feet
And use the oil as gravy sauce
Now, room service at five stars
Puffing joints out the hotel window
In Cape Town or Nairobi
I declare on my invoice
37 calling the room asking to thank God that we on

[Hook]

[Verse 2: Reason]
This is the pain I've endured
I remember being broke son
Pops working to the bone son
My mind telling me flow son
My grind telling me own up
Your ass ain't gon blow up
Don't talk jack just crawl back
In that backpack and get a real Job
Damn, mama told me life was hard
But she didn't say no more
'Cause I never listened at all
'Til I had to borrow money for transport
To record my verse on street music
That minute I got the call (Now I'm gone)
Ah, looking back at all my shortfalls
I Look forward to a lot more
Like world tours and encores
I mean what else is next after
You open up award shows
With bars known by every 16 year old at your mall
So all in all here's to spitting bars
And bottles stores, and moving onto climbing charts
And hanging with the biggest stars
Although it's way bigger than living large
I'm living off the art God gave to my heart
And now I'm feeling more

[Hook]

[Bridge (Poetry): Nova]
Stand as tall as time
'Cause these skies bear witness
To how mere dust can rise to meet God in the air
There lies your story from grime to glory
Struggles turned scripture inscribed into your spine
To remind your backbone of what you've always known
The ground is not your home
Straighten up and fly right
Endure and keep on you are the celebration
Never a funeral march or swan song
This 808 of your heart beats only triumphs from the war
March on 'til life hands you an applause
For the curse and the cause
For the fight and the flaw
For the sleepless nights of dreams
That dance victory to your door
Keep resilience at your core
And a church in your palms
You're the future that is fashioned from
Fight and freedom song
Stay low keep firing
And it wont be too long if you endure
Marry Swagdeline
