lyrics

Verse 1 (Neak):

Yo, I change the world simply when I bare a little soul, my upbringing through the fire analyzing woes, naive slave to my lineage I can't control, momma' baby poppa's maybe bastard child goals, I didn't ask for, so we clash more, when my identity's is fronting like a dashboard, they say the root of happiness is through a White Jesus switcharoo, despising our ancestors voodoo, cold treason, cult reasons, foul tyranny, Native Soul Brothers they ain't hearing me, FBI rented the balcony at Audubon the day Malcolm got called home don't keep the blinders on, realist shit I prolly ever wrote, if it take my life address the poison like a keynote, everything that's tailored from the truth will come and set you free, under pressure won't fold less pursued by Free, my 106 crush, huh, energetic my flesh, heavy is the crown keep the cranium test-ed, the best years, subjected, fill a prison, we don't fall flaws and al, never quitting, got damn!!!

Chorus:

It's a war going on that no one outside is safe from, I say it again...
It's a war going on that no one outside is safe from, uhhh huh...
It's a war going on that no one outside is safe from, I say it again...
It's a war going on that no one outside is safe from, yo chi yo.....

Verse 2 (Rashid Hadee):

Time to bring back the deadline it's get up out your head time, If you're legendary ain't a bullet that can dead lives, Living for the longevity, going steadily, Dedication is the recipe, Dealt with inner demons for years, so what is you telling me, You too petty with your pedigree, The world rejected me and it felt worse than the death penalty, But I got the drive that caused frienemies, Narrow lines between friends and enemies, Want me assassinated like John Kennedy/Martin Luther, How we 'sposed to be kings, Too many tattered souls covered in shattered dreams, The Hood got us trapped in a fantasy, Whole world hidden in plain sight for half to see, I'm just trying to hold it down like gravity, In these crazy times of bloodshed and blasphemy, Know it have to be the past that's put in back of me, Just to remain a strong young mayne with plain sanity, Progress we better see, it's like we protesting everything, Just let me slip freedom the wedding ring...

Chorus:

It's a war going on that no one outside is safe from, I say it again...
It's a war going on that no one outside is safe from, uhhh huh...
It's a war going on that no one outside is safe from, I say it again...
It's a war going on that no one outside is safe from, yo chi yo..... 2x
