M-1 - 'Til We Get There

rate me

[M1]

'Til we get there

'Til we get there

'Til we get there

[K'naan]

Yowego, from the poorest and blackest of people

To survive in the streets of Modesho

The most dangerous armed and lethal, yet peaceful

We no evil, I come from the slums that's run down

Spit native intelligent tongue sound

Would rather get gunned down than dumbed down

So come down ...

[M1]

Much success to you comrade

To who I wrong, if it's never been said before, my bad

I took a page from the book of Martin Luther

And decided that it's better to hug ya than to shoot ya

I'm sorry homie if it's not what ya use ta

But the way that we livin' these black lives is beautiful

All the things we've been through and the tree we done bloomed

We probably family but we never knew

[Chorus: Stori James]

'Til we get there, I'm on your side

'Til we get there, I'm on your side

And it can take some time, 'til we win this fight

'Til we get there, I'm on your side, yeah

[M1]

That's what's called solidarity

When we struggle it's therapy, after chaos we get clarity

My enemy's enemy is my man remember?

I ain't tryin' to be endin' up in this man's dilemma

We only here for a minute, it's what you make it so live it

See, I'm a ryder and I'm gon' be remembered

For those of you not born, to those of you not here

I wish you the best and that's real

[K'naan]

This ain't ya average, when they portray us they say "all savage"

Coz we have it, blast it, won't stash it

Coz we fight to the death and manage

To makes songs of struggle and to habits

And dammit, if I don't get even

It's chant down Babylon season

Die for Nee Orleans to Cleveland

'Til we even, we not believin'

[Chorus: Stori James]

'Til we get there, I'm on your side, yeah

'Til we get there, I'm on your side

And it can take some time, 'til we win this fight

'Til we get there, I'm on your side, yeah

[M1]

I love when we makin' plays

I love all our brilliant ways

I love when we get paid and never move away from the hood

We keep gettin' while the gettin' is good

You right at home in our neck of the woods

Coz we people, momma said treat others like you want 'em to treat you

We just wanna live and be peaceful

Long as it makes sense, I'm a have patience

Especially with my brothas I go back in the day with

We speak the same language, suffer the same dangers

Coz our children are victims of lead paint chips

Out in L.A. they put the black against the Mexicans

Old rivaling's is throwin' up they sets again

They put the short against the tall and the old vers the new

Pretty soon it's gon' be me against you

All the things we been through and the tree that we bloomed

I wish you much success and stay true

[Chorus: Stori James]

'Til we get there, I'm on your side

'Til we get there, I'm on your side, yeah

And it can take some time, 'til we win this fight

'Til we get there, I'm on your side

'Til we get there, I'm on your side (I'm on your side)

'Til we get there, I'm on your side (I am on your side)

And it can take some time, 'til we win this fight

'Til we get there, I'm on your side, yeah

'Til we get there, I'm on your side

'Til we get there, I'm on your side

And it can take some time (it can take some time), 'til we win this fight (till we win this fight)

'Til we get there, I'm on your side, yeah

'Til we get there, I'm on your side, yeah

'Til we get there, I'm on your side

And it can take some time, 'til we win this fight

'Til we get there, I'm on your side (I am on your side)
