You gotta stand up to sorrow, before the darkness
this music's my only accomplice
I swear I'll never feel alone
You gotta face your tomorrows, never look back
a heartless colossus, looming in the black
I swear I'll never feel like home

I venture through these rainy days in technicolour dreams,
they said that the grass was greener, when its not what it seems,
I left my loved, my life, in search of myself
yet there was only one that came to me when I called for help,
music was my soul, my mind, reminded me of life when my mind unwinded -
desperate, I was confined and blind, I found solace in Tupac and Jurassic five -
cypress hill, dead prez and Busta rhymes, I longed for the stage man, every night,
no one related, said Hip hop was dead,
yet they spoke the words my father never said, yeah

You gotta stand up to sorrow, before the darkness
this music's my only accomplice
I swear I'll never feel alone
You gotta face your tomorrows, never look back
a heartless colossus, looming in the black
I swear I'll never feel like home

I venture through these winter days searching for a place
some might say the life of a wanderer is the path he chooses to create
the road fate carves aint narrow and straight but I aint got no time to stop and wait,
cause I gotta believe my dreams await, it’s like lookin at a star and see it fade from space
Most spend their whole lives searching for someone to trust,
and when they couldn't find love, only turned to lust
so go figure that they fuck themselves to death
and it's the word they'll be shouting with their dying breath
I turn to the beats when I near the noise of thunder
no one ever told me that my days were fuckin numberered
no one ever told me that hip hop was a way of life
and I gotta fuckin tell you now that music is a state of mind

You gotta stand up to sorrow, before the darkness
this music's my only accomplice
I swear I'll never feel alone
You gotta face your tomorrows, never look back
a heartless colossus, looming in the black
I swear I'll never feel like home

I know there'll be a time when I'm not around
and I know there'll be a time when my voice will resound, singing

You gotta stand up to sorrow, before the darkness
this music's my only accomplice
I swear I'll never feel alone
You gotta face your tomorrows, never look back
a heartless colossus, looming in the black
I swear I'll never feel like home
