lyrics

[Jamil:]

I'm on. Let 'em know what it is right now.
Push forward, can't quit right now. Stay grinding 'til my light' out.
They doubt us, tell 'em pipe down. You'll never get in my head.
I'm eating my daily bread. It started when I was bred.
My goal has always been highest. They'll conquer and they'll divide us.
They'll say they love us, but fight us. These demons can't get inside us.
And yeah they want to get you. Nah, you cannot let them.
See, God is always beside you. He wants to see you heaven.
So we're pushing, keep pushing. Everybody has enemys.
Watching everything you do like they're measuring.
And you only get heat like anitfreeze.
If you let them cruise in like Penelope [Cruz].
If you want to give up, please remember me.
When I tell you these words: Yo, God is always at work

So hold on. Get ready to go on.
These words that I teach you haven't failed for no one.
So lace up your sneakers, and turn up your speakers.

'Cause we're about to get it, get it, get it.
Ain't nobody messing with it.

(Can't nobody hold us back, they can't hold us down.
They can't keep us trapped, tie us to the ground.
Told y'all people that we don't mess around.
When we turn it up, please don't turn us down.)

(Ooh. Let me see your hands up!)

[Fanaticus:]

Wake up, down and out. Hoping somebody sees me if I shout.
Crying out for the people around me.
To see what I see and collect the bounty.
Praying meditation keeps me ready.
But you can never really be truly ready.
Your eyes on the prize, on the ball, on the call.
They throw a curve ball, and you hit the wall.
Slump to the knees. You know I'm getting weak.
Keep my hands ready 'case they sneak attack through the trees.
Gun ready, my ammo in the tommy.
Machine Gun Kelly can't compete if he's around me.
Didn't find me, I hope they don't find me.
Can't cover up these tracks 'cause I'm grinding.
Got the gears turning, 'cause I'm burnin the track made for me.
Hot fire I'm blazing.
And even when I thought I couldn't do it,
You were there in my corner saying I'm grooving.
And even when they told me I couldn't,
My homie came through with the track, now I'm booming.
And even when them demons were fluent,
Invading my life, trying to take me off my current.
You were there, just assuring I was safe for the present.
Now my confidence back, and it all seems so certain.
When I was younger, I wasn't even a somebody to a nobody.
But everybody's never a copy.
I was told that I was never gonna make it.
And your homebody struggled with his life, but he couldn't take it.
Pretty jaded, but you know I never fake it.
Nah I wasn't worth saving.
'Til I got on my knees, and I screamed for change.
My momma came running, saying, "It'll all be okay".
My savior and my life support.
The other kids gunned me down, but she never pulled the cord.
In school, teachers said I was gonna shoot 'em up.
5'1 Tyrell? Nah, I let it beat me up.
But no Chris Brown when I say look at me now.
Another troubled kid who's now proud of his smile.
Music saved me, it can save you too.
Nas said the world is yours, man I thought you knew.

(Can't nobody hold us back, they can't hold us down.
They can't keep us trapped, tie us to the ground.
Told y'all people that we don't mess around.
When we turn it up, please don't turn us down.)

(Hands up, reach for the sky.
Hands up, get 'em up high.
Hands up, if you really feel alive.
Live it up, live it up!)
