Let Me Tell You
Let me tell you
Something 'bout my biggest fear
It's not a fear of dying
Has much more to do with living
A life that's uninspiring

Our world is broken
But I know a change is near
I crave a revolution
Energy that risks electrocution
And just a tad of evolution

Don't wanna wake up
All dejected in the morning
Yearning for a spark
That might have sent my senses soaring

I won't be missing my purpose
Or just skimming the surface
I'd rather risk it all
And end up dead

It's not a fear of dying
It's a fear of just surviving
A fear of never trying
To get what I deserve
Rather not have had what it took
Than acted too by the book
To think I've come this far
But never had the nerve

People talking
Never really say a thing
We're more than cell divisions
Nobody ever got nowhere by wishing
You've got to execute your vision

So many reasons why I began to sing
(Alleluia)
I sing for Jesus and for pa**ion
(Alleluia, alleluia)
Don't care what's going in and out of fashion
(Alleluia, alleluia)
I sing 'cause music's everlasting
(Alleluia, alleluia)

Don't wanna wake up
All dejected in the morning
Yearning for a spark
That might have sent my senses soaring

I won't be missing my purpose
Or just skimming the surface
I'd rather risk it all
And end up dead
It's not a fear of dying
It's a fear of just surviving
A fear of never trying
To get what I deserve

I'd rather not have had what it took
Than acted too by the book
To think I've come this far
But never had the nerve

Now this is what I like to call living
Seizing every day that I'm given
Wish that I could promise you
Tomorrow will be free of pain and sorrow, but
That would be fibbin'

There's always
More to do
More to give
More to serve
Karma doesn't have to be a curse
I think that generosity's a sign of self-worth (yeah)

Did I mention that I'm living while Black?
We should take a moment to unpack that
Sometimes survival is a goal
And thriving is the toll
If you're living while Black
A lot of us begin to wonder
Why it is we even bother
If and when the crackers attack
They try me, they gon get smacked
I was born to fight back

Now dance
I'm living
Do your thing

Girl, do your dance
Boy, do that dance
We're dancing, mm

Woo!
