"My Culture"

I'm the sum total of my ancestors 
 I carry their DNA 
 We are representatives of a long line of people 
 And we carried them around everywhere 
 This long line of people 
 That goes back to the beginning of time 
 And when we meet, they meet other lines of people 
 And we say bring together the lines of me
 
 When I look back over the years 
 At the things that brought tears to my eyes 
 Papa said we have to be wise to live long lives
 Now I recognize what my father said before he dies 
 Vocalize things I've left unsaid 
 Left my spirit unfed for too long 
 I'm coming home to my family 
 Where I can be strong 
 Be who I planned to be 
 Within me, my ancestry 
 Givin' me continuity 
 Would it be remiss to continue in this way 
 Would you rather I quit 
 Come with the other shit
 Making people's hips sway 
 Lip service I pay, but I'm nervous 
 I pray for all the mothers who get no sleep 
 Like a lifeline, I light lines 'cause my compassion is deep 
 For the people who fashioned me, my soul to keep
 And this is who I happen to be 
 And if I don't see that I'm strong, then I won't be 
 
 This is what my Daddy told me 
 I wished he would hold me 
 A little more than he did 
 But he taught me my culture 
 And how to live positive 
 I never wanna shame 
 The blood in my veins and bring pain 
 To my sweet grandfather's face, in his resting place 
 I make haste to learn and not waste 
 Everything my forefathers earned in tears 
 For my culture
 
 Fall back again 
 Crawl from the warm water 
 
 For my culture
 
 Water to air 
 You're on your feet again 
 Your feet again
 
 Hello Dad, remember me? 
 I'm the man you thought I'd never be
 I'm the boy who you reduced to tears 
 Dad, I'd been lonely for 27 years 
 Yeah, that's right, my name's Rob 
 I'm the one who landed the pop stars job 
 I'm the one who you told, "Look, don't touch" 
 And the kid who wouldn't amount to much 
 I believe in the senses out of sound 
 I have always been too loud 
 Won't you help me drown it out? 
 I'm what I feel 
 And what I'm feeling is surreal 
 I'm a massive spinnin' wheel, always digging in my heels
 Now I got the faith 
 Fall back again 
 Crawl from the warm water 
 Water to air 
 You're on your feet again 
 Your feet again
 
 Ha, lace up your booty 
 Going back to the roots, continue my interlude 
 Feed freakin' for loot 
 And my spell's been to check what your future brings is now 
 And your forefathers further know how 
 But now, what happened to the world without the hatred 
 Use your head, if the needle is wise, be the thread 
 And weave ancestral wisdom, yours by best 
 Spreading the Lord's word over this broad Earth
 
 This is what my Daddy told me 
 I wished he would hold me 
 A little more than he did 
 But he taught me my culture 
 And how to live positive 
 I never wanna shame 
 The blood in my veins and bring pain 
 To my sweet grandfather's face, in his resting place 
 I make haste to learn and not waste 
 Everything my forefathers earned in tears 
 
 For my culture
 
 Fall back again
 Crawl from the warm water 
 Water to air 
 You're on your feet again 
 Your feet again 
 
 For my culture 
 
 Fall back again
 Crawl from the warm water 
 Water to air 
 You're on your feet again 
 Your feet again 
 
 For my culture
