Lyrics

(Chorus - William and Martin Luther King)

(I am happy I Have a Dream) I got a Dream
(That One Day ) We're gonna work it out out out
(That One Day ) We're gonna work it out out out
(That One Day ) We're gonna work it out
(I Have a Dream) I got a Dream
(That One Day ) We're gonna work it out out out
(That One Day ) We're gonna work it out out out
(That One Day ) We're gonna work it out
(I Have a Dream) I got a Dream
(That One Day) That one day
(That One Day) I'ma look deep within myself
(I Have a Dream) I gotta find a way
My Dream Is To Be Free
My Dream Is To Be
My Dream Is To Be
My Dream Is To Be Free

(Verse 1)

In search of brighter days, I ride through the maze of the madness

Struggle is my address, where pain and crack lives
Gunshots comin' from sounds of Blackness
Given this game with no time to practice
Born on the Black list, told I'm below average
A life with no cabbage

That's no money if you from where I'm from
Funny, I just want some of your sun
Dark clouds seem to follow me
Alcohol that my pops swallowed bottled me
No apology, I walk with a boulder on my shoulder

It's a Cold War - I'm a colder soldier
Hold the same fight that made Martin Luther the King
I ain't usin' it for the right thing

In between Lean and the fiens, hustle and the schemes
I put together pieces of a Dream
I still have one

Chorus

(Verse 2)

The world's seen me lookin' in the mirror
Images of me, gettin' much clearer
Dear Self, I wrote a letter just to better my soul
If I don't express it then forever I'll hold, inside

I'm from a side where we out of control
Rap music in the 'hood played a fatherly role
My story's like yours, yo it gotta be told
Tryna make it from a gangsta to a godlier role
Read scrolls and stow slaves

And Jewish people in cold cage
Hate has no color or age, flip the page
Now my rage became freedom
Writin' dreams in the dark, they far but I can see 'em
I believe in Heaven more than Hell
Blessings more than jail
In the ghetto let love prevail
With a story to tell, my eyes see the glory and well
The world waitin' for me to yell "I Have a Dream"

Chorus
