lyrics

Now or never I doubt it’s ever that dire/
only motivated when I get close to the fire/
Who knows why a me on the ropes is a noble fighter/
Associating hope with providing/
I come from a long line of barley trying and getting by/
You won’t be surprised if you apply and you get denied/
Children of compliance got defiant and this is why/
It’s hard to sympathize crackers dying from getting high/
When crack was in its prime drug abuse was a kin to crime/
America’s design on who do and don’t get to lie/
In front a grand jury or or a choir of people crying/
Somewhere in between a you and I and the you is silent Or obtuse/

How far how far how far will you go/
How far how far how far will you go/
How far how far how far will you go/
How far how far how far will you go/

not using an excuse just correct truth/
I was sent to upset you/
I got your children standing next to where you left ooh/
Move away from me but to the music you step to/
Black flight the only non white in front row/
Amir’s feared in light when’s it night they want O/
Show full good girls hype when I come close/
She said she use my vinyl surface to blunt roll/
Edison ain’t know it would be medicine/
Peddled in by the melanin to European’s fleeing their skeletons/
In need of a reconning we’ll I recon I’m selling them/
Addiction in a civil suited garment I settled in/
Live from colonies of cotton, tobacco, sugar and rotten planning/
Harvesting a promise t@wasn’t rooted when I was planting/
Equity not equality I’m demanding/
Your past or my future, who wants it more/
Panic/

How far how far how far will you go/
How far how far how far will you go/
How far how far how far will you go/
How far how far how far will you go/
