lyrics

We Can Overcome

Chorus - Ras Jahn / Ian I
when will it end? oh lord
never gonna see us fall, never no
love some more and
we can overcome it all
but when will it end? oh lord
never gonna see us fall, no
not in this time as we coming with the rhymes now

1st Verse - Ian I
I man know that in time
we can come back to the light
and all of their evilous thoughts
will go down in a fire so bright
and all their wars and illusions
them division is system confusion
so if you wanna live your life
we can do it but some things will have to change now

Chorus

2nd verse - Force
This is your moment take it most of your time is wasted
on diamond rings, finer things  and a gaudy bracelet
or lord I gotta make it I was raised to praise
so every day I fill a page with phrases every word I say is sacred
and this world is glaciers in the race no one can save ya
face to face with the reality it’s human nature
my whole crew’s equators hottest things around the globe
impossible to stop us. Watch us as we rock a show.

Chorus

Bridge - Ras Jahn
corruption so high, you can't get over it
corruption so low, you can't get under it
corruption so wide, can't get around it
corruption so deep, you'll never get through it no

Chorus
