Lyrics

[Dawidi]
Last night I had a dream
I was shining like a beam
Woke up this morning
and rolled up my sleeves

Last night I had a dream
I was shining like a beam
Woke up this morning
and rolled up, rolled up, rolled up my sleeves

Another day, another rhyme
Another to way to feel alive
Expression of a black thought through bangin speakers
Motions of an old soul in second hand sneakers
It's not a walk it's a cadence
Ok dance
Ok then
Say what?
Son of the black soil, blessed by the sun, cherished by the night
Skin like black oil, smooth like rum, aging like fine wine
Music still my favorite high, I been puffin a lot lately
Trynna find the whys to my hows, reflectin deeply
The more I pay attention to the call, the more get in tune
Vibrations za Nyiragongo, peace, love na ukweli juu
The revolution is live on your feeds
You could hate or emulate, the record keeps spinnin
And I keep winning

[Dawidi]
Last night I had a dream
I was shining like a beam hmm hmm
Woke up this morning
and rolled up my sleeves

Last night I had a dream
I was shining like a beam hmm hmm
Woke up this morning
and rolled up, rolled up, rolled up my sleeves

It's been a long walk coming from the bottom
I'm far from being the only one with problems
Like puzzles, it takes patience to solve 'em
I grew up being told to accept life as it comes
Then one good day I refused to settle for crumbs
Questioned religion, rebelled from the norm
I was born different, no place felt like home
Stranger in my own body, no idea where I came from
Piercings, tats leaving a WTF on conservative faces
Little did I know it's in my genes to create alternative spaces
Shit I believe in is too important for silent treatment
And my energy loud enough to quiet judgements
So I stay on the grind
I write, I perform, I act, I spit
I rhyme, I reform, I tag, I be
Active on these streets
Till my dreams manifest

[Dawidi]
Last night I had a dream
I was shining like a beam hmm hmm
Woke up this morning
and rolled up my sleeves

Last night I had a dream
I was shining like a beam hmm hmm
Woke up this morning
and rolled up, rolled up, rolled up my sleeves

Did my rage sound like I was complaining
About getting wet every time it started raining?
Sorry but not sorry cause I turned that frustration into fuel
Foot on the gas, my worries started to fade in the rearview
I got a few things left unsaid in my interviews
Zoomed out the extra, redirected to my inner views
Daily doses of healing, music my medicine hmmm
On the court, hard to believe this is 40somethin
Homie, ain't nobody sleepin on me
Unless it's consensual
My shit too conceptual
For petty minds
And these ain't empty words
You can tell I'm puttin in work and time
You heard?
