“I’ll have to tell everybody about-about-about myself”

From the same dirt from the heels of my ancestors
The naked roads and the fields where the pain festered
I wonder where the hold came from
In the deeps of my heart make me yearn for the drum
It’s the same place where the cross is burned
The same place where the loss was earned
It’s the place where the floss was yearned
Gold teeth and bling ice on the rings baby, sure

We’ve all got things that hang at the back
Things that make us cool
Things that make us whack
Things that make us mad
Things we wish we never had done
But they’re just the things that make us real
Not the maps to guide where we go from here
The road twists and braids our hair
Until we all get there

I like that I don’t know some mysteries
Ancient things and beginnings
Excited about the day when I don’t have to hear all the theories
My scalp needs some grease
In the same place where the crosses burned
The same place where the loss was earned
The only way we all can learn
Is if we have these braids with the twist and turns so

We’ve all got things that hang at the back
Things that make us cool
Things that make us whack
Things that make us mad
Things we wish we never had done
But they’re just the things that make us real
Not the maps to guide where we go from here
The road twists and braids our hair
Until we all get there

Walking in the race of life
Looking for my own pace
Not always wanting to but I have to
Sometimes feeling like I’ve bitten off much more than I can chew
But the wind goes through my hair
And lifts me up with ease, not a crease
Hair full of grease no weave embracing me
It’s you I see
I am you and you are me I see, yeah
I am you and you are me I see, yeah

We might survive as brothers, yeah, or perish here as fools
Go place your bets
Don’t bet too soon
You might find me in another
Feels like someone you once knew
You know that face, yeah, we all do
Braided hair (braided, braided hair)

We might survive as brothers, yeah, or perish here as fools
Go place your bets
Don’t bet too soon
You might find me in another
Feels like someone you once knew
Braided hair (braided, braided hair)
Braided hair (braided, braided hair)
Braided hair (braided, braided hair)
Braided hair (braided, braided hair)
Braided hair (braided, braided hair)
Braided hair (braided, braided hair)
Braided hair (braided, braided hair)
Braided hair (braided, braided hair)
Braided hair (braided, braided hair)
Braided hair (braided, braided hair)
