Kemba – Hallelujah Lyrics

It’s hard to be positive when impoverished, I did it
Involving in politics for a profit
I’m searching for higher learning in hopes for a higher living
You open to different cultures, my opus in hieroglyphics
My nigga
Embarked on an inner search for forgiveness
My nigga
The death of a kid and birth of a cynic
My nigga
We traded our Laurens for foreign women
May the lord see our flaws, and may God be my witness
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
[Hook]
Ain’t no brighter days for a nigga like me
The church don’t pray for a nigga like me
The Lord ain’t saving niggas like me
It’s not likely, nah nah
Ain’t no fairy tales for a nigga like me
The world doesn’t label the nigga like me
Them educated niggas like me
It’s unlikely
[Verse 2]
I’m surely some sort of sorcerer
You flying flags while I flag down a flying saucer, huh
Jesus of Nazareth raps to the non-exalted
It’s Hera’s daughter reviving a dying culture
Live and direct from the fleshes you hide inside
Made of rotten carcasses piled to protect yourself from the vultures
But we survive like the phoenix rise
And arrive like the bronze in Egypt
My bronze people reaching a solstice
Hope to be seen as A Sea of Hope to the hopeless
They go to drink but the oil leaked in the ocean
Formula 40-40 will force the erosion
We taking .40s to 40-40 and posting
A lot of souls are going missing
A lot of goals get lost in prison
A lot of cold in this description
You out of focus, get the picture? And even after all my logic and my theories
I gotta say “my nigga” so my niggas feel me
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
[Hook]
Ain’t no brighter days for a nigga like me
The church don’t pray for a nigga like me
The Lord ain’t saving niggas like me
It’s not likely, nah nah
Ain’t no fairy tales for a nigga like me
The world doesn’t label the nigga like me
Them educated niggas like me
It’s unlikely
[Skit]
[Outro]
You think, that you don’t have to ever quit
You think, that you can get away with it
You think, the light won’t be evident
It’s almost over now, almost over now
Something on your chest, better get it off
There’ll be no-one left, when we send it off
We ain’t going to take it no more
It’s almost over now, almost over now [Verse 1]
I told my mother I loved her just the other week
Said I’m sorry for being weak, turn the other cheek
No villain is ever raised, as if a different breed
To us humans I shed a tear before I did the deed
Father, Father, our personas gone on forever
The grown-ups ain’t show no effort so homies don’t know no better
Of course we gon’ go retarded
Our fathers were tarred and feathered
As targets and all we got is the president
So who riding I’m with it?
