Lyrics
Verse 1: Being hated and discriminated against - I have Been pushed and pulled - dirt thrown on my name while being kicked Forced to listen to them talk - while smellin' their bullsh*t All i'm spillin' is truth - just a rabbit - tryin' to get his tricks A leprechaun wit bad luck - you say you goin' through some sh*t At the bottom of the well tellin' me I can make it out the pit Things are not what they seem to be - and they seem to be legit Believe the tunnel goes as deep as you can dig and get - But nobody ever said - you'd survive to make it out and tell it They want you to be clammed up - Don't shut up - just shell it If they believe it - sell it - if that's the truth they goin' for - then that's the truth you tell them - if they want to be told - then tell them But - am I - victorious - if I fail them Fickle and belittled by unanswered questions Bamboozled by those who chose to not answer those questions But what matters the most is who answers for them Don't even shoot the messenger no more - Just torture them Hook; But Still I Rise - Beat for what you SEE But Still I Rise - Beat for what you TEACH But STILL I RISE - STILL I RISE - STILL I RISE Beat for what you PREACH - But Still I Rise Beat for what you THINK - But Still I Rise Beat for what you HEAR - But Still I Rise STILL I RISE - STILL I RISE Verse 2: Have you ever been depressed - stressed - oppressed - felt reject - regret not impressed - by dress - their stink is the new fresh The older you get - materials mean less - you want the best For your family - future - no fame or fortune - just livin' blessed Knowing everyday - that you can just wake up with the natural stress Knowing everyday - you have earned a well-deserved paycheck The years you have worked ya ass off - refuse to settle for less They can check into this middle finger - Fuck a settlement check Go back twenty-four years check my mama pussy if you doubt my steps Go to Heaven and challenge God if you doubt my breath Live my life with my thoughts and tell me my next step Take care of my kids - baby mamas tell me I ain't did my best Support three sisters - two brothers - twenty nieces and nephews Tell me I ain't the shit - Know how many so-called gangsters say to me they wouldn't go to war overseas - you scary BITCH Hook: But Still I Rise - Beat for what you SEE But Still I Rise - Beat for what you TEACH But STILL I RISE - STILL I RISE - STILL I RISE Beat for what you PREACH - But Still I Rise Beat for what you THINK - But Still I Rise Beat for what you HEAR - But Still I Rise STILL I RISE - STILL I RISE
