Lift Those All Around - Coronavirus

• Written by 

This is it all
Fear been pouring from the sky
Let me lift y’all
God give us strength
So we stand tall
In face of adversity
Fear and uncertainty
Circulating endlessly
Talking with some sense in me
Blame it on the CDC
Prayin that humanity
Embraces love eternally
 
Perhaps just what we need
Something to make us whole
The language of the world
Uplifting young and old
I guess that's why they say
That music heals the soul
The nourishment within
For centuries so told
Bob Marley, Billy Joel
and all those in between
Don’t call me Martin Luther
We all just have a dream
Don’t call me Piano Man
Don’t call me Rasta-far
This is our new salvation
A new redemption song
 
One thing I’ve always known
It stands so very true
No matter what we say
No matter what we do
The people find a way
To persevere in life
There is no doubt, for sure
We’ll overcome this strife
 
Corona got me thinking
a certain type of way
Expression of my mind
Verbose, perhaps they’ll say
It gave me an idea
To write out this for yall
To help us through the pain
A suffering absolved
So I made a remedy
Some would call it poetry
Definitely
Certainly
Now I know you feelin me
Call me the new MC
Jigga man be Jay-Z
Carson Daly, MTV
But I got no mic near me
But it ain't no problem, D
Now we got uncertainty
Didn’t scare those slaves, B
A woman known as Minty
Harriet she broke free
Inspired me, truthfully
Leading through uncertainty
Feelin like a rough sea
God gave me a stiff breeze
Navigate so easily
Ferdinand Magellan, he
Sailed around, was worldly
Didn’t need a compass, see
Now I’m writing hist-ry
Referencing the likes of thee
Franklin gave us Liberty
Pennsylvania, always be
Land of opportunity
Keystone state, it raised me
Blessed me with a family
Not to mention, homies
 
We need love more than ever
To lift those all around
My hope is that you find
Some joy just through this sound
We send these prayers to heaven
Please send some blessings down
We promise to receive them
And pass them all around
