    Day ONE

    What seem to start off like in illusion
    seeing and feeling inner deep confusion
    there's a goal str8 ahead
    a journey on da pathway of my realism
    a bigger struggle with hurt n' pain
    just too many to be named

    yet bleeds in da depth of my mind
    like da third world or some other kind
    I have a mission a purpose and places
    that will valley between da many faces
    this hurdle like running a race
    da poverity I ask where is this grace

    pitted on da shelf or way back of da line
    I look up high wit a brighter shine
    my fight becomes a battle
    a war that really matters
    I compromise unto me to be da bridge
    da walks of all seasons for untold reasons

    weather storms/blizzards and death heat
    nor will i lay down or submission in defeat
    I plan to take what set forth on my plate
    go out here with what's in my heart and my faith
    O' how i know what is instored against me
    lies/betrayal and some hate
    but i will break down da devils red gate

    take back my peoples and help restore
    fine this unity and wash down da floor
    bond wit every soul i may cross
    help bring back what we truely lost
    come out da shadows of our past
    to a better today and greater morrow
    I will stop and feed da lonely sorrow
    all my foes against me i will share my love

    da system has a hold on me
    yet my soul and mental spirit is flying free
    seeking freedom , a freedom well known
    this freedom that's deep in our song
    one that's been written in blood stain stone
    first, da task is to get us home

    I won't split da red sea
    nor cage a ball of fire for da world to see
    i will have with me a powerful mind
    a hope and will like no other man kind
    three sixty five str8 ahead ---->
    these dreams alive and never dead
    come to far to turn back now
    yet so far away to this goal i seek

    tired, weary and blisted sore feet
    my hands covered in da clay of shame
    when i speak of my own by da very name
    beatin individualism, pride and egos i blame
    nor will i seek solo fame
    I compromise to never be tame
    wit da knowledge and wisdom around me
    I'll fight and fight and fight !!

    I may not see da other side
    history will know why i had to ride
    my people will understand why i died
    don't cry , don't cry !
    just let me fly spirit free
    because da love i had deep in me.
