"Rise" as written by Sylvester Gordon and P. Hall....
RISE Lyrics – The Martin Luther Experience

What’s happnin’ little brother / are you (still) getting by?
On the corner everyday, you like to pay / are you still (are you still), getting high?
Now I’m only your reflection / deeply by the chocolate soul complexion.
But here we go to rise again / would you please tell a friend / to come on in.

Take your time and make sure that you do it right….

Chorus-
While the Cadillac leans from side to side while I’m hangin’ with my friends.
Just to be alive is a reason to ride, especially with my kin.
Hit a little something that will feel it right / just might hit it again. (just might hit it again).
Open your eyes don’t you be surprised, when we start to win.

Sometimes I want to feel like I’m the one in control (nothing to loose yea)
And take back every element of me that they stole (so hard)
I’ll be fine when I heal my mind, body, and soul. (Until then)

Take your time (take your time) and make sure that you do it right….
(we’ll be makin’ moves)
Makin’ moves while knowing God is on our side.

Chorus-
While the Cadillac leans from side to side when I’m hangin’ with my friends.
Just to be alive is a reason to ride, especially with my kin.
Hit a little something that will feel it right / just might hit it again. (just might hit it again)
Open your eyes don’t you be surprised, when we start to win.

(in case you didn’t know)
I feel you all the time (when is it gonna work out, I have no doubt)
Yes I do, I do (this song is a dedication to the inspirational.. )
I know your grindin but I want you to keep in mind

Take your time and make sure you do it right…. (make sure that you do it right yeaaa)
Makin movies while knowing God is on our side.
(you gotta know, you just got to believe yea)
No one can make you want it more than you, so rise. (don’t you ever)
Don’t give up the spirit of the phoenix, rise! X 3
