lyrics

Verse 1 (Neak):

Lord knows, I'm so sedated in sorrow save me with prayer it's precious the soul, it's days prayers like the pliers compressions the woes, and days slipping like that rapper Earl's covering lows, cover girls coveting the simple time we froze, in time idolizing moments she mumbling it's your world when crumbling, emotions no vocalists not a trio to cover this, deficits tumbling, like tumble weeds cut the shit I tell me when tailoring to dysfunction this society publishing, the pain so humbling, at times I'm amazed at the ways that stomach it, the phase is separation from all the days commeth, a maze that our sight see effected by rubish that we created, the disdain embedded inside beloved, yet we show it on our sleeves no denying it, got it face it all to succeed or die trying it.....

Chorus (Spq-Her):

When you're faced with adversity, remember, hold on....life has its ups....life has its down......remember, remember, straighten up your crown (straighten up your crown yeah yeah yeah yeah), remember remember (remember), remember, remember...

Verse 2 (Neak):

The saying goes you cannot slow up with God's timing, you miss the blessing if depression got you Phyllis Hyman, internal demons that's painting pictures that paint you on edge of defeat, simply fall out of alignment, dreams a fill your soul up, preparation for shining impeccable grinding, a la cart buzz co-signing never needed, not from broken elites, leave me soaking like Peters, robbed from Paul's to earn my stripes Addidas, since a fetus I was made for a throne, Senoritas guarantee us love tell from the tone, all poison, appreciated doubled when on, now fake love real poison turn to Nina Simone, need a Mars need some outer space, uh no, I gotta face the scars out of place to bring greatness, to be here for a long time, pardon my lateness, and pressure make a diamond....pray I make it count with these great gifts....

Chorus (Spq-Her):

When you're faced with adversity, remember, hold on....life has its ups....life has its down......remember, remember, straighten up your crown (straighten up your crown yeah yeah yeah yeah), remember remember (remember), remember, remember...

Verse 3 (Neak):

The world's changing, see the strangers, scared of success cause old friends will see it, internalize it, the feeling's raging, they say they love you but love you for what you're doing for them, a thin line between clapping for em and seeming foreign, when you're appointed, apparent, the pressure boiling, symbolism for angel wings, flapping through life's poison, death around the corner, greatness allure her, the Malcolm/Martin/Kennedy saga continue on ya, crazy when all you wanted was seeing California, Sade I need, momma these demons run amuck on ya, the hypocrisy of loving thyself, when sleeping with different souls and laying hearts on the shelf uh huh, this world's crazy yet we want what it gots, we want whatever it gives, within forgiving me nots, apologetic no, we just wanna live righteous, a sacifice coming when ya life is priceless wha what....
