Lil' Wayne - Tie My Hands

rate me

We are at war

With the universe

The sky is falling

And the only thing that can save us now

Is sensitivity and compassion

But I know one thing's for sure

I'm gonna get my kicks before it all burns down

Some say tragedy is hard to get over

But some time that tragedy means it's over, soulja

From the academy, league of rollers

I deny being down though they seem to hold us

My shoulders are strong, I prove them wrong

I ain't doing nothin but movin on, let the truth be known

But they talk that freedom matters, and didn't even leave a ladder, damn

I work at the corner store

We all got problems problems

No one's gon save us now

How you feel, you're not alone

We're all just jealous jealous

We don't reach the sky no more

We just can't overcome no

Tie my hands

What am I gonna be

What have I done so bad

What is my destiny

Tie my hands

What am I supposed to see

What have I done so bad

What am I gonna be

I, knock on the door, hope isn't home,

Fates not around, the lucks all gone

Don't ask me what's wrong, ask me what's right

And I'm a tell you what's life

And did you know?

I lost everything, but I ain't the only one

First came the hurricane, then the morning sun

Excuse me if I'm on one, and don't trip if I light one, I walk a tight one

They try to tell me keep my eyes open

My whole city under water, some people still floatin

Then they wonder why black people still voting, cause your presidents still chokin

Take away the football team, the basketball team

Now all we got is me to represent New Orleans

No governor, no help from the mayor

Just a steady beatin heart, and a wish and a prayer

These friends they come and go

But I got family family

These kids so fast they grow

They learn so quickly now

But there's no way to go,

But there's future future

Don't make this seem so low

That we can't overcome

And if you come from under the water then there's fresh air

Just breathe baby, gods got a blessing to spare

Yes, I know the process has so much stress

But it's the progress that fills the best

Cause I came from the projects straight to success

And your next, so try they can't steal your pride it's inside

Then find it and keep on grinding

Cause in every dark cloud there's a silver lining

I know...

Right now we just riding on love

And shining dark, we ain't tryna do nothing be at the heart

We need love, that's all now

You tie my hands, what am I gonna be

What have I done so bad, what is my destiny

You tie my hands, what am I going to see

What have I done so bad, what am I gonna be

Born right here in the USA

But due to tragedy, looked on by the whole world as a refugee

So, accept my emotion, do not take it as an offensive gesture

It's just the epitome of my soul

And I must be me

We got spirit y'all

We go spirit

We got soul y'all

We got soul

They don't want us to see, But we already know
