I am the sum total of my ancestors I carry their DNA We are representatives of a long line of people And we cart them around everywhere This long line of people That goes back to the beginning of time And when we meet - they meet other lines of people And we say: Bring together the lines of me When I look back over the years At the things that brought tears to my eyes Papa said "We have to be wise To live long lives" Now I recognise What my father said before he dies Vocalize things I've left unsaid Left my spirit unfed for too long I'm coming home to my family Where I can be strong Be who I planned to be Within me my ancestry Givin' me continuity Would it be remiss to continue in this way Would you rather I quit? Come with that other shit Making people's hips sway Lip service I pay, but I'm nervous I pray for all the mothers who get no sleep Like a lifeline, I light lines 'Cause my compassion is deep For the people who fashioned me, my soul to keep And this is who I happen to be And if I don't see that I'm strong, then I won't be This is what my daddy told me I wished he would hold me A little more than he did But he taught me my culture And how to live positive I never want to shame The blood in my veins and bring pain To my sweet grandfather's face In his resting place I made haste to learn and not waste Everything my forefathers earned in tears For my culture Fall back again Crawl from the warm water (For my culture) Water to air You're on your feet again Your feet again Hello, dad Remember me? I'm the man you thought I'd never be I'm the boy who you Reduced to tears Dad, I'd been lonely for 27 years Yeah, that's right My name Rob I'm the one who landed the popstar's job I'm the one who you told "Look, don't touch" I'm the kid who wouldn't amount too much I believe in the senses that I sound I have always been too loud Won't you help me drown it out? And when I feel What I'm feeling is so real I'm a massive spinnin' wheel Always digging in my heels Now I got the faith to Fall back again Crawl from the warm water Water to air You're on your feet again Your feet again Ha, lace up your booty Going back to the roots, continue my interlude Feed freakin' for loot And my spell's been to check what your future brings is now And your forefathers further know how But now, what happened to the world without the hatred Use your head, if the needle is wise, be the thread And weave ancestral wisdom, yours by best Spreading the Lord's word over this broad Earth This is what my Daddy told me I wished he would hold me A little more than he did But he told me my culture And how to live positive I never want to shame The blood in my veins and bring pain To my sweet grandfather's face In his resting place I make haste to learn and not waste Everything my forefathers earned in tears For my culture Fall back again Crawl from the warm water Water to air You're on your feet again Your feet again (For my culture) Fall back again Crawl from the warm water Water to air You're on your feet again Your feet again (For my culture)
