Intro
Da da da da da da da
Da da da da da da da
Da da da da da da da
Da da da da da da da

Verse 1
Forced my ancestors here on their slave ships
Many lost their lives, it could’ve been a grave ship
Infested with disease, it was a plagued ship
Didn’t know where they were headed, it was a maze ship
Woo’d from our land with their courtship
De-africanized the lamb that we worship
And they trampled on the soil of our kingship
Was once royal, but now our queens and kings shipped
To a foreign land, acquired with false friendship
Separated families and destroyed kinship
And now when we won’t submit to leadership
They forget that we had to watch our leaders whipped
So dear America these are now the fruits
Of forcing cultural compliance, breaking people from roots
But in lieu of trade trips
On your slave ships
We’re still standing to tell you we gon’ make it

Chorus
We gon’ make it for sure
We gon’ make it for sure
We shipwrecked, but we gon’ make it for sure
We gon’ make it for sure
Floating on these broken pieces
We gon’ make it for sure
We shipwrecked, but we gon’ make it for sure
We gon’ make it for sure
Da da da da da da da
Da da da da da da da
Da da da da da da da
Da da da da da da da

Verse 2
Yeah, this the land of the spirit poor and the dollar rich
Profit chips off of work daddy and mama did
Took our books when we tried to improve scholarship
Grandfather clauses took our voice in their politics
So now I’m blindly loyal to a party
But I don’t examine agendas to see if they are for me
But after years of lies it’s all the same words
Left wing, or right wing still attached to the same bird
So now its time to change up the manuscript
Time to take flight from the landing strip
Break bread at the table of companionship
Put together all these pieces that we’ve managed with
Been disadvantaged with
Some mismanagement
But we handled it
And now our hands are fist
Raised to the sky as we all board the mother ship
And dispose of the curses from those other ships

Chorus
We gon’ make it for sure
We gon’ make it for sure
We shipwrecked, but we gon’ make it for sure
We gon’ make it for sure
Floating on these broken pieces
We gon’ make it for sure
We shipwrecked, but we gon’ make it for sure
We gon’ make it for sure
Da da da da da da da
Da da da da da da da
Da da da da da da da
Da da da da da da da

Da da da da da da da
Da da da da da da da
Da da da da da da da
Da da da da da da da

Outro
We gon’ make it
We gon’ make it
We gon’ make it, we gon’ make it
We gon’ make it, we gon’ make it
