Lupe Fiasco: Resurrection (feat. Kenna)

[Kenna]
Like a phoenix, from its ashes, we will rise
Follow angels, into heavens, we will rise
Nothing's gonna take you down, we are everlasting now
We are everlasting now (now)


[Chorus: Lupe Fiasco]
Now I've been shaking, but I'm not broken, I won't be breaking, anytime
I have fallen but I'm not ruined, I keep on movin' into my, resurrection (my resurrection)


[Verse #1: Lupe Fiasco]
Urgency emergencies among us
Life is in a crisis, tragedies upon us
And we won't leave you stranded, rapidly we cometh
To take you out the darkness, show you where the sun is
Cries from the rubble are the voices this is sung with
And those that have stopped singing, we can still hear you under it
Right up out your worrying, right into the wondrous,
Right up off the ground, right to where the thunder is
And it's where your sisters and your mothers and your brothers is,
Aunties and your friends and your fathers and your husbands is,
Watchin' with the rest of the world in astonishment
Live from up above, us via news coverages
Seeing even more than the misery that happens is the love,
the strength, the history, the passion,

The courage of an impoverished, people that the world once abandoned,
shining, infinite, everlastin'...



[Chorus: Lupe Fiasco]
Now I've been shaken, but I'm not broken I won't be breaking, anytime
I have fallen but I'm not ruined, I keep on movin' into my, resurrection (my resurrection)

[Lupe Fiasco]
And we pray, we pray every prayer we know...

[Kenna]
We will rise up, we will rise up, we will rise up...

  2. Minor correction:

    "Right about your worrying, right into the wonderess" should be,

    "Right up out your worrying, right into the wondrous"

  18. i wish there was some way that we could actually tell Lupe how much his music means. what he's doing is very honorable and i respect him for it. our generations has been dumbed down so much that we cant even see whats in our face. it's time to open your eyes everyone he's giving you more then just good music he's letting you know something big is coming thats not in our best intrest and we need to try to stop it.
