lyrics

i see there’s working to be done
and so i put away my pride
in this struggle for survival
we’ve got to stay alive
some dreams are full of maybes
so i push them to the side
and face this trouble everyday
and i take it all in stride
set my eyes on the horizon
straight steady for the sun
with this love light burning bright im gonna keep my family warm
and so there’s bread upon the table
and there’s rice upon the shelf
because i’m livin everyday
for something greater than myself

this is everyday work for the bread
currently i'm out for currency
accordingly to the livity
we do this on our own terms
my kids livin fresh
my wife hella fresh
dare i say it hella blessed
sacrifices
but self is not self when self needs common wealth
and youth need good health
if i waited for my fans to pay my bills
i'd be skinny bones jones in this bitch
stomach groans in this bitch
while some artist got they momma
some got they daddy to buy'em
a nice caddy supply'em
with a life that's cavi
we be hustlin n bustlin
time card scan the clock while we muscle’n
just "to get by"
word to kweli my struggle so beautiful
i'm a realist my pretty thangs ain't delusional
workers feel this I've never given up on artistry
a cross between Mike and Joe
it's just another part of me

i see there’s working to be done
and so i put away my pride
in this struggle for survival
we’ve got to stay alive
some dreams are full of maybes
so i push them to the side
and face this trouble everyday
and i take it all in stride
set my eyes on the horizon
straight steady for the sun
with this love light burning bright im gonna keep my family warm
and so there’s bread upon the table
and there’s rice upon the shelf
because i’m livin everyday
for something greater than myself

i'm on some
rappity rappy yes yes y'all
i don't sip the lean or mumble when i talk
i ain't fitting in with trends to well
ima west side original
opposite of frail
big dog big troofy
big dreams held loosely
we prioritize differently
strategize simply
teenage daughter shouldn't worry bout a father
young boys become men
so I'm ten toes in
i mean grounded like I'm supposed to be
we are the roots
baring fruits for our branches
to become they own kinda tree
beyond scholarly
soul power everything
focus on the spirit and energy
soul everything
when I think about 'm Omni
so everything
father
husband
teacher
lover
brotha
son
worker
writer
artist
provider
i'm peace but for family
a protecta
a ridah

i see there’s working to be done
and so i put away my pride
in this struggle for survival
we’ve got to stay alive
some dreams are full of maybes
so i push them to the side
and face this trouble everyday
and i take it all in stride
set my eyes on the horizon
straight steady for the sun
with this love light burning bright im gonna keep my family warm
and so there’s bread upon the table
and there’s rice upon the shelf
because i’m livin everyday
for something greater than myself
