Watch Us Fly (Generation)
"Sincerely," EP (2012)
NAK & Elyon Beats

lyrics

How is it possible that God Himself adopted me
And audibly, He called me to an odyssey that altered me
Full autonomy, responding to the prophecy
To stomp upon hypocrisy, and squashing all idolatry
Armor agape, no Karma could stop me
When Grace is upon on me, face it, my faith is alarming
t takes failure to know success
The coldest death is best to provoke His breath
It’s a story of antiquity and former glory
An empty catacomb had lifted up his category
I saw my shadow and it offered me an apple
So I traveled to the ground with my back to the gravel
(I will) Spread faith with every sample on the fader
My destiny is great but the battle’s even greater
”Conducting” metamorphosis of “maladies and felonies”
(To “melodies”) resounding from the balcony to mezzanine

This song is dedicated to the one who’s broken hearted, now...
Get up get up, just get up, get up
To the victim of injustice, the hopeless, and guarded
Get up get up, just get up, get up
To the brother trying cover his corruption and addictions
Get up get up, just get up, get up
To the sister with syringes; stripped of her significance
Get up get up, just get up, get up

And when they tell you that you’re nothing, better drop those lies
Look em’ straight into the eye... (tell em) “watch me fly!”
When they tell you that you’re nothing, better drop those lies
Look em’ straight into the eye... (tell em) “watch me fly!”
Watch me fly! Watch me fly!
Let it shine, let it shine, now watch me fly!
Watch us fly! Watch us fly!
Let it shine, let it shine, now light up the sky!

I used to question my identity like “was I ever meant to be?”
Infested with the sentiment of severing my destiny
I always thought I had a purpose but I never saw it
I always thought I had a meaning but I never sought it
Camaraderie is hardly a commodity
When trust is your “issue,” your “volume” and novelty
Fought to guard my secrets. I don’t want your peace.
I’ll keep my depression. Keep pornography.
I won’t open up. I won’t break it down.
My yoke isn’t tough. I don’t need you now.
But deep down... my very soul lived a lie.
“Nak, how you doing?” I’m doing just fine.
Countless torrents a soundless torment
While my heart was pouring but my mouth was dormant
Now... Sorrow praying and my body started aching
God, hallowed be Your name, sorry Father, make this pain end
Like an orphan in garments who’s home is his carpet
Broken in darkness, alone and so heartless
Could you open up my heart without a question or a comment?
Could you tell me that there’s hope and could your message be honest?
Could you look into my mind without the nausea vomit?
Could you love me like a brother and for forever, and promise?
How is it possible that God Himself adopted me?
Through my brothers and my sisters who stopped for me!
Thank you for caring... it gave me life.
Thanks for your love.... you saved my life.
I won’t stop now. I’m made to fight.
I won’t drop now. I’m made for flight.
Watch me fly now! Do I make you proud?
Watch me rise now! I ain’t coming down.
It’s the beginning, now I shout with my arm flexed
Conquering the darkness! Peace and God bless.

Watch me fly. Watch me fly.
Let it shine, let it shine, now light up the sky
