lyrics

Intro/Chorus
We got a long way to go
And there's no going back
To life we lived
The life we used to know
We got a long way to go
I'll give you everything
There's nothing left
There's nothing left to lose

Verse 1
I got a father that holds grudges
Mother I see struggling
Brothers that need nudging
And as for me well
I'm sure I'm in need of something
Generations of hurt
An entire world that all I see just needs loving
So that would have to make me something
STRENGTH
My size might be small
But I stand tall
Bring peace to the world
Through songs, Psalms
We got qualities about us
And that might cause somebody shame
But that don't make you bad
It doesn't have to be a belief
Or a reason to seek only in the end to make yourself mad
Maybe some people should try and understand
Or be a human enough to understand that they don't understand
Defining yourself can be hard when only change is constant
They say a man who puts anyone before himself is just too dishonest...To Trust
And Oh...

Chorus
We got a long way to go
And there's no going back
To life we lived
The life we used to know
We got a long way to go
I'll give you everything
There's nothing left
There's nothing left to lose

Bridge
Yeah, I know
Seems like a tough road
I swear we've been here before
We got a long way to go
Yeah, I know
It seems like a tough road
I swear we've been here before
Still, we got a long way to go, yo

Verse 2
Look for the good in bad then it gets better
Some days are longer than others and some are sped up
It's hard to spread love, trust, I know you fed up
But a wise man once said, gotta keep ya head up
Up, up, up, up and away
Today you look them demons all up in their face
And while you're up, up up in their face
Tell'em I got to keep it shining when you're throwing me shade
And Hey, it's no offense and no coincidence
that we can't come up off the fence with all them politics
Cause now it's politricks, and there are piles of it
We gotta bag our shit, we gotta bag it quick
Or make use of it and then get use to it
We're creatures of habit and I hope that we don't forget
It's time to get this show on the road
Although the episode looks like a long way to go
I know

Bridge
Yeah, I know
Seems like a tough road
I swear we've been here before
We got a long way to go
Yeah, I know
It seems like a tough road
I swear we've been here before
Still, we got a long way to go, yo

Chorus
We got a long way to go
And there's no going back
To life we lived
The life we used to know
We got a long way to go
I'll give you everything
There's nothing left
There's nothing left to lose
