about

This is the second volume of a three volume series of mixtapes where I try to do something that I haven't heard anyone else do; rap over indie rock/electro/dubstep/alternative/folk/indie songs, while leaving the original tune intact and integrating my rhymes with the theme of the tracks. This one has a bit of a spiritual/political/conspiracy/truth type of lean, which is something I'm mad passionate about. I hope y'all dig it.

Track Name: The Truth Is In The Dirt x Karen Elson
[Verse 1: Cee]
She a devil woman, with an angel's tongue,
But be careful with her, she could make you done,
A Charlotte complex, and a troubled past,
A kind heart with a mean streak that'll raise the dust,
She feels like she's owed something coz she lost so much,
The world is indebted so to her, she already won,
Instead of channeling energy into building up,
She shutting those who closest to her down, a fucking righteous cunt,
The bitch is not a good look but she makes it work,
Every friend she ever had stay evading her,
And she living inside of her minds image,
So caught up in herself she doesn't understand the difference but the truth is in the dirt on the ground

[Verse: Karen Elson]
The truth is in the dirt on the ground
The truth is in the dirt on the ground
Not in your gilded cage with your rusted spoon
When the ground splits open it will swallow you
The truth is in the dirt on the ground
The truth is in the dirt on the ground
Not in your poison tongue or your acid tears
Let the truth howl in your ears

[Hook: Karen Elson]
Here she comes, it's killing time
Flames are burning behind her eyes
Here she comes, it's killing time
Flames are burning behind her eyes

[Verse: Karen Elson]
The truth is in the dirt on the ground
The truth is in the dirt on the ground
Not in your claws, drawn-out scratch 'til it bleeds
Knocked down dead gets what she needs
The truth is in the dirt on the ground
The truth is in the dirt on the ground
Not on the blazing horse from the midnight sun
The fire will turn your bones to dust

[Hook: Karen Elson]
Here she comes, it's killing time
Flames are burning behind her eyes
Here she comes, it's killing time
Flames are burning behind her eyes

[Verse 2: Cee]
I see em burning, I see em burning, I see em burning, and dog she looking murderous,
But she about to learn the hard way the story goes

[Verse: Karen Elson]
The truth is in the dirt on the ground
The truth is in the dirt on the ground
Not in your gilded cage with your rusted spoon
When the ground splits open it will swallow you

[Verse 3: Cee]
And it will, man the dirt is where the truth at, she knew that,
And she could never hide, long as the earth is where she breathe at,
But she never let a grudge escape her,
Because a little vindictive bitch is what became her,
So she tried to play a little game, make these fuckers see what happens,
And just like she said it was on,
Ain't It Funny, let's Vamos, In Time I'll See It Through,
Just like it went in the song,
She making moves with no intention of the latter,
And just like the wind, she was gone,
And poof, she fuckin' outta there, feeling kinda proud of her,
Self, she fuckin' showed em, yeah,
Feeling kinda rowdy her,
Self, coz she thinks she pulled a fast one on 'em,
And so if payback's a bitch then revenge is a motherfucker,
But as time went on, the guilt grew inside her,
Because the truth is in the dirt, lies can't never hide her,
She's a stubborn one and tried to keep the truth away,
But it's stronger than the body, the devil decayed,
And as they placed her lifeless back to whence she came,
It occurred to her we're really all the same coz the truth is in the dirt
Track Name: Sea Legs x The Shins
[Verse 1: Cee]

You know the feeling, yeah it always come in waves,
It's like you've been on, yeah, been on a ship for days,
Standing's hard as shit, stomach doing backflips,
My words is fumbling, tongue is doing gymnastics,
And you could call it lust, I think it's more attraction,
Another half who be balancing everything you lacking,
And all I want is to be caught up in her web of passion,
And get eternally lost wandering through her labyrinth,
It's a blessing coz in her presence, it makes me better,
Her glowing soul brightens every room, she effervescent,
And when the dead moon rises again,
Her gravity remains hemming me in, let it begin

[Verse: James Mercer]

Of all the churning random hearts
Under the sun
Eventually fading into night
These two are opening now
As we lie, I touch you
Under fuller light

Girl, if you're a seascape
I'm a listing boat, for the thing carries every hope
I invest in a single light
The choice is yours to be loved
Come away from an emptier boat

[Hook: James Mercer]

Cause when the dead moon
Rises again
We've no time to start a protocol
To hem us in
And when the dog slides
Underneath a train
There's no cry, no use to searching for
The mutt's remains

Throw all consequence aside
The chill aspire, people set alight

[Post Hook: Cee]

It's a blessing coz in her presence, she make me better,
Her glowing soul brightens every room, she effervescent,
And when the dead moon rises once again,
Her gravity, it stays hemming me in, yeah, yeah

[Verse: James Mercer]

Of all the intersecting lines in the sand
I routed a labyrinth to your lap
I never used a map sliding off the land
On an incidental tide
And along the way you know, they try
They try

And we got sea legs
And we're off tonight
Can I've that to which they've no right?
You belong to a simpler time
I'm a victim to the impact of these words
And this rhyme

[Hook: James Mercer]

Cause when that dead moon
Rises again
We've no time to start a protocol
To hem us in
And when the dog slides
Open the door, and where'd she go?
There's no time, no use to searching for
The mutts remains

Throw consequence aside
And the chill aspire, people set alight

[Verse 2: Cee]

Set it alight, my soul burns for this woman who's the world to me,
Her fourth finger ain't laced yet but it's sure to be,
When I saw her, wasn't looking for a partner y'all,
Was tryina get involved but this was more than what I bargained for,
The woman in her is the worry in me,
Her beauty so unparalleled, just quit the hollering, please,
And although we of a different shade, it matters not to us,
And we were told that love is colour blind, in that we trust,
She my lover and my best friend, she hold my attention,
My muse whenever music at a dead end,
She give me so much happy, my face is hurting,
From the smiling and it's like every minute waiting, it's worth it,
And I'm genuinely sad when she not around,
I personally prefer it when her purpose is putting it down,
And on the real, her mind is as fine as her physical,
Her body is a miracle, her booty is the pinnacle,
And I could write a whole damn song about it,
But I'mma keep that just for us, dog she mine, I'm proud,
To have a strong, independent, motivated woman walking with the kid,
And when I look into her eyes, I see the mother of my kids,
And so, feeling like I'm the luckiest dude breathing,
Coz I found my queen when I wasn't even looking to see her,
And as time goes on, my love keeps on growing,
My heart still beats faster when I fall into her arms, she give me sea legs
Uh uh uh uh, she give me sea legs, yeah yeah yeah yeah, she give me sea legs
Track Name: Make You Feel x Bekah x Pretty Lights
[Verse 1: Cee]

So how it make you feel? Everyday you negotiating the lies that,
Impeding you from just living your fuckin' lives and,
You'll lose your appetite when y'all can realise that,
Nothing's as it seems so open your fuckin' eyes man,
Look around, it's all apart of the plan for,
A modern day slave, they chillin' so they demand more,
The debt never quit, from the school to the mortgage,
Moving up and you borrow, you a frightened subordinate,
Egyptians knew the deal, life's a pyramid scheme,
Either you working for the man or you pursuing your dreams,
Plod on for an hourly wage,
Or stand strong with a powerful gaze, negative thoughts never phased,
So it's on, even though the whole system set us up to fail,
I visualise and manifest, nothing less than real,
So every time ya hear em talking like you can't do it,
Turn the system up with this 'Fuck 'em, I say we can' music

[Hook: Bekah]

How does it make you feel when nothing goes according to plan when,
You feel like everything is slippin' from your hands, ow ow ow,
How does it make you feel when you're in control, look deep in your soul, yeah,
The choice is up to you, o-o-o-only you

[Verse 2: Cee]

So how it make you feel? When the bossman holla coz you a minute late,
Or you can't take a shit unless you on a break,
When you deserve it and denied your promotion,
Coz the new guy been kissing more ass than you been holding,
And it's wrong, when they ask you to stay on, you do it,
When they call you on your day off to roll through, you do it,
All take and no give,
Wanna vacay? Denied, shift swap? Yeah I tried, so fuck it, I gotta live,
And how it make it you feel? When the job kinda consumes you,
Selling your time for some shit that ain't the whole truth,
Survival tickets, legal tender, it's debt and,
No matter what you do, you can't escape the power it's reppin',
But it's a wonder what some knowledge'll do,
We coming out the dark age so y'all can see a little light poking through,
And I have a lotta faith in my fellow human beings,
We can never let a new world order control the species,
Nah, we all apart of one consciousness,
Physical divisions illusions, they disempower us,
So as we march on forward as one spiritual being,
There's nothing else for us to do but succeed and how that make you feel?

[Hook: Bekah]

How does it make you feel when nothing goes according to plan when,
You feel like everything is slippin' from your hands, ow ow ow,
How does it make you feel when you're in control, look deep in your soul, yeah,
The choice is up to you, o-o-o-only you
Track Name: Sleepyhead x Passion Pit
[Intro: Cee & Sample]

[Sample] And everything is going to the beat, and everything is going to the beat, and everything is going

[Cee] Oi wake up. Yo wake up

[Verse 1: Cee]

Uh, it's time you sleepyheads woke up,
TMF in this bitch, 2012 what's up?
Dropped 20 plus discs, a hundred thousand hits,
K-Nott signed the kids yet y'all still catch Z's,
Huh? Am I hearing it right?
Nah son coz we only gotten sicker since the Canada flight,
And our dues paid in full, my dudes made it, cool,
I'm through taking bullshit, too late, we movin',
I took a break just to catch my breath,
Five years straight and I ain't even pause a sec,
And now I'm more motherfuckin' focused than I've ever been,
Attracting what I need so the kid can be living the dream,
Yeah, I never felt so on it,
This time around, dog, game's a goner, honest,
And the mixtape's an audio no dose,
No time for sleeping in, if we slip, the door closed and you say

[Verse: Passion Pit]

And you said, it was like fire around the brim,
Burning solid, burning thin the burning rim,
Like stars burning holes right through the dark,
Flicking fire like saltwater into my eyes,
You were one inch from the edge of this bed I dragged you back

[Hook: Passion Pit]

A sleepyhead,
Sleepyhead

[Verse 2: Cee]

Yeah this a wake up warning,
Coz these kids sleepin' on us like it's Sunday morning,
So this year the kid gon' get his,
Stack some chizips, a thousand bizeers,
And show the whole GTA we don't play,
I'm on my fourth decade so there's no time to wizaste,
Started off as an indie experiment,
But now the shit is looking like a motherfucking testament

[Verse: Passion Pit]

They couldn't think of something to say the day you burst,
With all their lions, with all their might and all their thirst,
They crowd your bedroom like some thoughts wearing thin,
Against the walls, against your rules, against your skin,
My beard grew down to the floor and out through the doors,
Of your eyes, begonia skies like

[Hook: Passion Pit]

A sleepyhead,
Sleepyhead

[Verse 3: Cee]

Uh, one time for the old heads,
Who been with The Fam since SD or '06,
Movement jumped off, we proved we got raw,
And if y'all wanting real Hip Hop Soul, we got y'all,
No more snoozing, rise and shine,
Back with intelligent rap, supply your mind,
The alarm done gone off, the calm is all gone,
Welcome to a new era of music, let's go
Track Name: Sugar Pill x Ambulance LTD
[Intro: Cee]

Turn it on, open it up,
Switch it on, pour another cup,
Clock in, do what you s'posed to,
Pay the bills, consume a little more too,
Turn it on, believe every word,
Turn the page, believe every word,
It must be for real, why would they lie to us?
It's gotta be true, it's gotta be...

[Verse 1: Cee]

Ah, yeah and the lies keep coming still,
It's like everything I see is a sugar pill,
Never regretting the time that I shoulda killed,
Looking back upon the empire that I woulda built,
Every event is a plan in disguise,
In a world that's a stage, they distracting your mind,
We a threat if we actually think for our damn selves,
Mind makes a man, in the end we a damn shell,
Uh, it's so hard to stay focused man,
With royal weddings and consumer holidays to plan,
We getting caught up with their tickets to survive,
That we ignore what's in front of us, and pay it no mind,
Now we truly broke, what we are we doing, yo?,
We better than this, we the many, just remember though,
Nothing's real so we controlling our destinies,
Just turn it off, close it up dog, and then you'll see

[Verse: Ambulance LTD]

Slip into the warmer touch
When the photograph of so much
Once you're gone
I came home, put my key in and locked the door

Took a million for everyone
Time should have overcome
With your luck and my word
But I didn't have one

[Pre Hook: Ambulance LTD]

So I'll be on my own
You're more than I can lose
I love you for the time that you killed
My sugar pill

[Verse: Ambulance LTD]

Seven stories they'll have to climb
To find out what we've done
To let them all be gone
But can't you read the sign?

Burn me up and mix me with salt
Bluegrass and a walk on the sun
And the one visiting those
Just where they go

[Pre Hook: Ambulance LTD]

So I'll be on my own
You're more than I can lose
And now I'm taking more than my fill

[Refrain: Ambulance LTD]

My sugar pill
My sugar pill
My sugar pill
My sugar pill

[Verse 2: Cee]

Uh, wash it down, now my mind is as numb as shit,
I don't give a fuck, I ain't feel a thing,
Yeah cool doc, hit me with that flu shot,
Gimme more pills to pop, shit I see a blue dog,
I'mma work my lil' job and keep the debt piling,
It's all I have so I need to get respect by it,
And live it up on the pension 'til my dying day,
That's how it is, man, life has always been that way

Uh, wash it down, gotta swallow hard,
The feelings coming back, I think I give a fuck,
Nah it's cool doc, I ain't need a flu shot,
I'm good for pills and I don't wanna see that fucking dog,
I'm still working but the debt keep rising,
And I don't understand it, but the banks keep lying,
And the pension won't cut it, man I really gotta save the day,
Shit is hard, why the fuck it gotta be that way?

Uh, wash it down? I'mma spit it out,
The feelings never left, I know what this about,
Fuck you doc, keep your damn flu shot
Glorified dealer, I ain't need a fucking thing you got,
I quit the job, and now I'm working for my family,
The debt was never real and only now I'm understanding that,
Switch it off and throw them sugar pills away,
Open your mind and shit'll never have to be that way
Track Name: Spirits x Jamie Woon
[Verse 1: Cee]
Yeah, yeah, uh, uh
I've lived a blessed life,
And it's a trip coz I'm 'bout 30 years in and the kid is yet to get it right,
But it's a path I gotta follow, whether left or right,
I feel the spirits guiding me with every step and text I write,
I'm not an atheist, but I'm close though,
Nothing else makes sense, like it's s'posed to,
So I go with my gut feeling,
And give thanks to the universe man, fuck kneeling,
Uh, I need a reason to dance in the moment,
The freedom to be what I need when I want it,
I believe that I'm we when I'm conscious,
The mind that I seize is the key that I'm holding,
In control and afraid that I'll lose it,
But thanks to the peace that I found in the music,
I realised that it matters not what they tell you,
The spirit is inside so it's yours when you want, dude,
I almost gave it all up, everything that I worked for,
Direction that I strived and searched for
The team that I built was changing,
It just wasn't the same but we were moving to a whole new stage and,
A whole new game plan, but man I was bitter,
Coz I couldn't understand why my family was dipping,
When we made a commitment to stick with it and get this shit,
As far as we could in a land where we was mad different,
But everybody has their own road to follow,
At first you couldn't tell me nothing at all though,
I was only 'bout collective dreams,
When I guess all I should've been worried 'bout was me,
So a break was essential, escaping the stressful,
And straight disengaging the mental,
Still I figured it's a wrap for me, dog,
But nothing worth achieving really happens for free, y'all,
Yeah, I'mma hold on to my time,
Breathe, look up and raise my hands to the sky,
My experience in this realm is just that,
So I ain't tryina get caught up and just live, man,
Ladies and gentlemen, surely you're hearing me,
Take the long road, fill your souls with our blessings,
When it's closing time, my spirit is free,
Let your heart go with the wind and just dream,
Yeah, coz when its closing time, my spirit is free,
Let your heart go with the wind and just dream

[Verse 2: Jamie Woon]
While we have oceans
Rivers that still bring us life
Reasons to live in the moment
Hold onto your time
Let your heart go where the wind takes it
Pure like the raindrops of time
Follow the path where it takes you
Straight down the line

[Hook: Jamie Woon]
Ladies and Gentlemen
Surely we're here in mind
Watching our spirits dance on the
On the backs of our lives, yeah, yeah, yeah

[Post Hook: Cee]
Uh, I need a reason to be in the moment,
To love what I see, and achieve so I'm growing,
I believe being me is important,
So I'mma stay Cee through the words in my poems,
I need a reason to breathe in the morning,
To feel that I'm free and release all the boredom,
I can see that the dream is evolving,
I ride with the change while I'm heeding the warnings,
I need a reason to live in the moment,
To love what I see, and achieve so I'm growing,
I believe being me is important,
So I'mma stay Cee, just stay Cee

[Verse 3: Jamie Woon]
How can one sit back and dream it?
I'd have no peace in my life
Climbing these walls in an hourglass
Prized in our strife
And I have seen worlds filled with wonder
Lost on my own lonely mile
Lessons I wish that I had mirrored
Time after time

[Hook: Jamie Woon]
Ladies and Gentlemen
Surely we're here in mind
Watching our spirits dance on the
On the backs of our lives, yeah, yeah, yeah

[Post Hook: Cee]
Uh, I need a reason to be in the moment,
To love what I see, and achieve so I'm growing,
I believe being me is important,
So I'mma stay Cee through the words in my poems,
I need a reason to breathe in the morning,
To feel that I'm free and release all the boredom,
I can see that the dream is evolving,
I ride with the change while I'm heeding the warnings,
I need a reason to live in the moment,
To love what I see, and achieve so I'm growing,
I believe being me is important,
So I'mma stay Cee, just stay Cee
Track Name: The Omniscient x Aria Zenua x Born Of Osiris
[Verse 1: Cee]
The Omniscient, ever present, energy recipient,
Spiritual being benevolent,
Heavenly resident, planets and the stars activist,
Psychoanalyst, war mongering pacifist,
The soul of the galaxies, reactionist

[Hook: Aria Zenua]
I need for you to feel me,
And you're soaring like the wind,
I've been here since the beginning,
When you gon' see it, when you gon' see it,
Been around the world and back again,
Seen so many things, and I can't pretend,
I am you, I'm The Omniscient,
When you gon' see it, when you gon' see it

Been around the world and back again,
Seen so many things, and I can't pretend,
I am you, I'm The Omniscient,
When you gon' see it, when you gon' see
Track Name: Where Is My Mind? (Bassnectar Remix) x Notion x Tommy Gunnz x The Pixies
[Intro Verses: Cee, Notion, Tommy Gunnz]
[Cee]
Uh, I lost my fuckin' mind again,
It was a while back and I ain't tryna find it man,
The minutes flying and rewinding ain't an option,
So I scooped the fuckin' Fam to lace the track, I know they got me, damn
[Notion]
Damn, in this padded room, thoughts runnin', scattered dude,
I'm challenging my badder moods, battling my attitudes,
Ready for a life change, time to pick the pieces up,
The sky's the beginning, the only way I think is up
[Tommy Gunnz]
In the late night, cusp of the daylight,
Nothing in my vision but the dust and the breaklights,
As long as I say what I feel and you feel what I say,
Then you gotta be feelin' the same way, right?

[Hook: The Pixies]
Where is my mind? Where is my mind?
Where is my mind?
Where is my mind? Where is my mind?
Where is my mind?
Where is my mind? Where is my mind?
Where is my mind?
Where is my mind? Where is my mind?
Where is my mind?

[Verse: Cee]
Ah, this some punch you in the dick music,
Scull a beer, burn a spliff, shelf a bick to it,
Where the fuck I leave my mind? I don't remember shit,
But y'all can have it coz we on another level, kid,
I'm reading Leary and seeing just how it really is,
I'm turning on, and tuning in, and dropping the fuck out this bitch,
I'm baking cookies in the kitchen with the missus,
Add some kush, some Cali Mist and our faces going to pieces,
Shit, but our motherfuckin' brains finna open wide,
The curtains move aside on this reality we know ain't right,
So ya gotta get the fuck up off the fences,
Coz ignorance ain't beget the existential consequences,
Dog, I been taught to only speak on what I believe in,
Instead of being basic and saying just what I'm seeing,
And yo, maybe I ain't that crazy to make this song,
I wonder where my mind's at, I guess it's been here all along

[Verse: Notion]
Uh and yeah maybe that's why I'm discovering,
The other 90% of my brain that's been covered in,
Not functioning on something like autopilot,
I fuckin' yank the wires out and then I gets to wildin',
A brand new person, a stand up version,
A man I am first and down to earth like the dirt,
We on a different channel, and a whole other frequency,
I said I've lost my mind so you can't speak to me,
I'm off the planet, chillin' somewhere like Mars is,
Rollin' up stardust with piff from my jar kid,
If y'all ain't movin' I consider y'all asleep,
And guess the only exception's if you dreamin', give me a reason,
To show you the path to open up your intellect,
I wish you god speed and hope our paths intersect,
Coz this a journey that you seeing through your eyes,
Windows to the soul? Nah I guess it's a gate to your mind

[Verse: Tommy Gunnz]
Ah, this some kill you in your face music,
Pump the bass, instigate, make mistakes to it,
Time to wake up, get acquainted with your brain, use it,
Put the pedal to the plate, drain the brake fluid,
Ah yo, where the fuck's my mind? I think it got away,
It must be 'round here, prolly where I left my body ay,
I need a holiday, malaise is setting in,
Wonder how the hell this suit and tie became my second skin,
I mean the stress is big,
It's got me grinding my teeth down in my sleep worse than the bickies ever did,
I'm at the centre of some Palahniuk transgressive thing,
Pass the mescaline and notify my next of kin,
That's it, I'm stepping in, no looking for a meaning,
It's only now I'm seeing that there's lessons in just being,
Drowning in a sea of thoughts, I'll breathe beneath the surface,
Liberate myself and never think about the purpose
Track Name: You'll Find A Way (C.H. Remix)
[Verse: Cee]

Yeah, it's the same story,
You see it all around the world, another vain bombing,
Y'all hear it through the airwaves like when them planes fallin',
And y'all can feel it in your bones that it just ain't normal, it's not too late for them

Let your mind go free and you gon' find a way,
I'm livin' right so it don't matter if I die today,
Never let 'em get the best of me and hide my face,
And I could fly away but I'm gon' find a way

Yeah, it's gettin' wilder by the minute,
And the shit is panning out exactly as they predicted,
From the smog in the skies, Merovingian bloodlines,
Down to World War 3 and the African genocide,
And yo, most the shit that we seeing is orchestrated,
And the heads of state are nothing but actors up on the stage and,
They the puppets for the real agenda happening here,
And you ain't tellin' me that George W is pulling the strings,
The primary motivation is fear,
Coz nothing keeps a mass of people in order like if they mortally scared,
Now we afraid to fly, shook to take the family and jet,
And everyone's a terrorist that look of Arabic descent,
They got us scared of everybody not like us,
But race, age, culture and religion are all illusions to divide us,
And why fight the many so the few can chill?
When the many manipulated to control themselves,
You wanna stay up but fam be like 'Don't do that',
So you hesitating and in the end you don't do jack,
And so it goes, you're just another sheep trapped in the cycle,
And the real shame is mainly in the loss of what you might do,
Democracy is a scam,
It's the illusion of choice that keeps us voting again,
A two party system so who you thinking'll win,
And politicians ain't elected, they selected and damn,
But I ain't worried 'bout it, it's nothing different, it's been like this for years,
Coz when you getting used to something, you ain't questioning shit,
We brainwashed to accept 'That's life', and just get on with it,
Fuck that, I ain't bowing down to cowards in the government,
We waste money but we scared of investing,
And barely afford the mortgage, interest rates is oppressive,
The banks is lovin' it coz the profit, it never quit, yeah,
But how the fuck is they creating money from thin air?
Historically, legal tender's nothing but a holding receipt,
For gold and silver they been holding for me,
And what would happen if we cashed in, demanding our shit back,
The world economy would collapse, we'd have to start from scratch,
Processed foods is killing us, it's physically blasphemous,
Everything we do is practically cancerous,
The air that we breathing is poison unpurified,
Same thing happening in our water with fluoride,
Y'all can feel the tension man, race riots over beaches and,
The people learning but ain't teaching a thing,
And the pigs can't be trusted, no matter your colour,
The wrong place and wrong time, and they macing you for nada,
And the scary thing is none of this is localised,
Same thing happens in every capital worldwide,
So all I'm saying is listen up, coz when the time's nigh,
You're ready for 'em with a vision of hindsight,
Yo, it ain't like there's not a model of hope left,
It's never hopeless if you doing more and you hope less,
So keep the faith and we gon' rise up through it,
And until you see the light you'll find the truth in the music

So let your mind go free and you gon' find a way,
I'm living life like I should've so if I die today,
At least I've given y'all the best of me and I can say,
I'm feeling proud that ay, I think I've found my way,
I think I've found my way,
You gon' find a way,
You gon' find a way yeah
