lyrics

I've been searching for purpose since the day I was born
And this is the purpose god has given me
They say if you got lemons you make lemonade
Well... I'm making lemonade

I’m a modern day prophet
Fightin’ against the nonsense
So fuckin’ conscious
I’m a product of the toxins
I’m a modern day prophet
Tired of the nonsense
They wanna see me drop
Throw everything you got, I ain’t ever gonna stop

I feel like a prophet with the life I’ve been given
I spread my knowledge through the words that I have written
I got a purpose, a mission to get rid of the bullshit
They want to hypnotize me but I always resist
I’ve been nailed to the cross, stripped of everything that’s mine
All because I dare defy the norms that keep people blind
But that won’t stop me from doin’ what I’m supposed to do
You can assassinate me and my words will still ring through
You can test my faith, I’ll never lose it
I’m already a pariah cause I act so foolish
Even if you bring me down, I’ll get right up
I’ll never believe your lies so just shut the fuck up
I may not be Malcom X or MLK
I may not be Kapernick but I know I’m brave
I ain’t a sellout or a shrill, I’m motherfuckin’ real
And this ain’t motherfuckin’ spiel, you already know the deal

I’m a modern day prophet
Fightin’ against the nonsense
So fuckin’ conscious
I’m a product of the toxins
I’m a modern day prophet
Tired of the nonsense
They wanna see me drop
Throw everything you got, I ain’t ever gonna stop

I stand for peace and unity amongst everybody
No fuckin’ agendas, fuck the illuminati
And fuck the industry for pushin’ gangsta shit on everyone
White kids trynna be black?, that shit is dumb
I don’t know who to blame for this modern day tragedy
Is it the devil or ourselves, I can’t even believe
That there’s blood on the streets, and they don’t do nothin’
When there’s a riot goin’ on, all the people be frontin’
They say they’re against the abuse but it still goes on
They say they’re against the hatred but it still goes strong
There’s less rights compared to say ten or twenty years ago
Can’t even protest, I’d get arrested by the popo
I’ve had people believe police reports over me
I’ve been treated differently cause my views just speak
For themselves, this world is hell, I’ve gotta shine the light
I got this knowledge so I’m ready for the fight

Bring it on
And I ain't afraid of you motherfuckers
Bring your pitchforks and torches, I don't care
I know I'm going to die, I ain't scared
Is this the price I pay for trying to make a better world? At least I care
