“All You Are” – Rhema Soul

2009年7月8日にリリースされたIn Ya Mellow Tone 3のアルバムの5曲目に収録されてる「Rhema Soul – All You Are」。ほとんどHipHop一色ではあるんですが、In Ya Mellow Toneシリーズに収録されてるだけのことはあると納得出来る1曲です。是非、聴いてみて下さい♪

Cause all you are, is all I want, always

Yes, yes, uh, yeah

You’re so good Lord, uh

Yeah, uh, uh, uh, you’re all I want, uh, yeah

You see I been hit with some hard blows but I keep on standing
When the opposition gets heavy I keep on jabbing
Cause my towel I ain’t just gon’ hand in
I gotta keep advancing, move my feet, keep on dancing
If life is a test, yes, I’ma keep on cramming
And if life is a game, I guess I’ma keep on gambling
But I hate to be misunderstanded, understand this
He didn’t just put us here for just the average
We were placed here to touch the planet
To help those dealing with famine to embrace the masses
So I’ma do everything within my power to meet with the standards
Even though I’m as big as a man gets
This racist deficience this is as much as expanses
Should’ve been a blind white boy the way that he got me in hands
And it’s enough to leave my mind blown
He’s the only one that I see better whenever my eyes are closed

Cause everything you are is all I want, and all I need
I gotta stand strong, I gotta proceed
I gotta keep moving, and I gotta hold tight
I gotta run the race, and fight the good fight

Cause everything you are is all I want, and all I need
I gotta stand strong, I gotta proceed
I gotta keep moving, and I gotta hold tight
I gotta run the race, and fight the good fight

Cause everything you are is everything I’m not
So I stop to ruminate on everything I got
Then I fall back, and sing a lot
Cause you put a song inside, in this beautiful music, the way the sinners can abide
In a brokeback mountain of a culture full of have-nots
Chasing illusions of redemption in a stash box
I feel it in my chest, I feel it every day
The way my people relish in the feeling of a penny saved
Tough to bear it, but there’s no eternal merit in things that man made
Souls full of band aids, trying to shake the pain
Can’t escape the chains
My knees falter when I’m fed up and expressed as dame
My little brother’s back split I nearly lost my brain
See the son of God came to give him a name
Look up and embrace the change
Tell your friends God mends the broken life
Not to mention flat lined to rise again

Cause all you are, is all I want, always

Cause everything you are is all I want, and all I need
I gotta stand strong, I gotta proceed
I gotta keep moving, and I gotta hold tight
I gotta run the race, and fight the good fight

Life is a journey, and as I begin on my mission
I’ve caught a glimpse of your vision and now my life is in remission
A little more folks now reaching that broken child
With words that emerged to heal the hurt I speak them loud
You’ve called us tenacious but we’ve started right here
And life as we know it needs to change right here
While some chose to leave I took heed to the call
In the midst of these storms to my knees will I fall
These generations damaged, they’ve been programmed and
They walking through this world in a spiritual famine
It’s time to examine, take a look at my heart
Search me father God I want to be where you are
My praise is genuine I aim it at you daily from the moment of your sunrise back to the moment of your sunset
Don’t fret I say to you your debt’s been paid in ways forget your past embrace the change

Cause everything you are is all I want, and all I need
I gotta stand strong, I gotta proceed
I gotta keep moving, and I gotta hold tight
I gotta run the race, and fight the good fight
