(Intro)
(Robin Thicke)
We are at war
With the universe
The sky is falling
And the only thing that can save us now
Is sensitivity and compassion

Da Di Da, Da-Di-Da Da Di Da
Da Di Da, Da-Di-Da Da Di Da
But I know one thing’s for sure
I’m gonna get my kicks before it all burns down

(Verse 1)
(Lil Wayne)
Yeah, some say tragedy is hard to get over
But sometimes that tragedy means it’s over
Soldier from the academy league of rollers
I deny being down
Though they seem to hold us
My shoulders is strong I prove ‘em wrong
I ain’t doing nothing but moving on
Let the truth be known
But they talk that freedom matters
And didn’t even leave a ladder, damn

(Robin Thicke)
I work at the corner store
We all got problems, problems
No one’s gonna fly that low
No one’s gonna save us now
How you feel
You’re not alone
We’re all just jealous, jealous
We don’t reach the sky no more
We just can’t overcome no

(Chorus)
You tie my hands
What am I gonnna be
What have I done so bad
What is my destiny
You tie my hands
What am I supposed to see
What have I done so bad
What am I gonnna be

(Verse 2)
I knock on the door
Hope isn’t home
Fate’s not around
The Luck’s so gone
Don’t ask me what’s wrong
Ask me what’s right
And I’m a tell you what’s life
And did you know I lost everything
But I ain’t the only one
First came the hurricane then the morning sun
Excuse me if I’m on one
And don’t trip if I light one
I walk a tight one
They try tell me keep my eyes open
My whole city under water
Some people still floatin’
And they wonder why black people still votin’
‘cause your president’s still joking
Take away the football team
The basketball team
Now all we got is me to represent New Orleans
No governor, no help from the mayor
Just a steady beatin’ heart
And a wish and a prayer
Let’s pray

(Robin Thicke)
These friends come and go
But I got family, family
These kids so fast they grow
They learn so quickly now
But there’s nowhere to go
But there’s some future, future
Don’t make this seem so low
And we can’t overcome yo

(Chorus)

(Verse 3)
And if ya come from under that water
Then there’s fresh air
Just breath baby
God’s got a blessing ta spare
Yes, I know that the process is so much stress
But it’s tha progress that feels the best
‘cause I came from tha projects
Straight ta success and your next
So try they can’t steal your pride, it’s inside
Then find it and keep on grindin’
‘cause in every dark cloud there’s a silver lining
I know

Yeah, yeah, yeah
See, right now we just ridin’ on love
A shot in the dark
We ain’t trying nothing but be at the heart
We need love
That’s all, that’s all

Yeah, born right here in the USA
But due to tragedy
Looked on by the whole world as a refugee
So accept my emotion
Do not take it as an offensive gesture
It’s just the epitome of my soul
And I must be me
We got spirit yall
We got spirit
We got soul yall
We got soul
They don’t want us to see
But we already know
