Lyrics
We all need help from each other sometimes Depending on me, I can still do just fine But we can do better if we just work together We all gotta make it, so lets make it right First devise a plan, next you need to have a goal Third you need to have heart fourth you need to have soul If not then you just an empty shell, face that Cuz blanks are only good for movies and stage acts Rewind then playback, listen and lay back Recap, wind up, sit back and watch it unwrap But think before you speak, and look before you leap Pay less attention to your enemies more to the friends you keep So weak, but we pretend to be diamond hard With wounds that have healed but permanent scars Imperfections in the flesh, blemishes of the skin That protected our chest, from the world’s cruel wind Eaten alive from within, by hate and evil Such strong people turned faint and feeble Opportunity’s knocking… so check the peephole Take this chance to revamp each and ev’ry approach If you want it you can have it if you need it You can take it, gotta do it, gotta get it, gotta live it gotta make it But face it… aint nobody gonna do it for ya So open your doors and let the energy pour and Grow up to soldiers, grow up to be real men, Somethin they can feel and risin up above the ceilin Down into the earth into the core and steady drillin Don’t stop hip hoppin til u get that holy ghost feeling Now check it… HOOK Gotta make it… for my moms Gotta make it… for my dad Gotta make it cuz this is the only life ill ever have Gotta make it… for my folk Gotta make it… for my peeps What it boils down to is Gotta make it… for me CHORUS We all need help from each other sometimes Depending on me, I can still do just fine But we can do better if we just work together We all gotta make it, so lets make it right We all need help from each other sometimes Depending on me, I can still do just fine keep getting by getting by cuz this life is rough But sometimes getting by just aint enough… See ive been down and ive been up And Ive been sh** ted on and f*** ed But I aint never given up when I was down on my luck cuz when I start to think im washed up and sh** is over I find a 4 leaf clover And a leprechaun on my shoulder So ima pass some of this fortune on to yall Cuz my people are a team and Im just passin the ball Like its been passed to me… a chain blessing With no hesitation and no second guessing HOOK Just tryna get made, like lemons to lemonade On a hot day sweatin and you cant find shade Just come round my way… and I got you babe There’s power in numbers just don’t be afraid
