The day after, the day after
Are we on the air?
Yes, we are live at the scene of this tragic accident
Where a car has ran into a building
The person in the car was positively identified as rap star Twista
Apparently, he went Kamikaze
The big question is will the rapper survive?

You're gonna make it, you're gonna make it
You got to fight to survive, oh, you're gonna make it
You're gonna make it, you've got to fight

Now it was a war it was like I was in Vietnam
But I kill 'em all, 'cause Kamikaze was the bomb
Got a strap to my back and I ran in if I was a terrorist
Got 'em all scared and the president said everybody be calm

Die for my belief but got out the rubbish because it
This cup of death, death was not yet meant for me to drink from it
Thinkin' how could I ever survive, I knew I was ready to ride
I even had C4 duct taped to my stomach but
You got a right to survive

But you gotta have will and always be ready to come off the wall
They gonna be willin' to test you and catch you if you talk the talk
But I'ma keep on with the struggle fuck leavin' my body in chalk
You're gonna make it

Look at me now cause I'm standin' on top of the globe
Makin' big money for spittin' my popular flow
Now look at the swagger of a platinum veteran servin' 'em medicine
It's not a given to work 'cause I'm choppin' them O's

Can't fuck with the swagger the haters just look at me nigh
I'm stickin' them daggers in haters just look at them cry
The shit don't affect us effect us they wanna imagine
They take us lay 'em on the back, I'm makin' 'em look at the sky

If I think they cool, I give 'em a dutch
If they break the rules, I give 'em a crutch
If they on the come up and I feel 'em I give 'em some dust
If they talkin' shit I'ma bust at 'em and get 'em to hush

Get away clean, go high on the meter, I got the street sweeper
A creeper believe I get deep as the word of a preacher
Lyrical retriever but good with them heaters
When I'm full of passion and fury like when you listen to Syleena

Went multi-platinum when I stepped on enemy grounds
Now bodies all over the world is fin' to be found
And Kamikaze was successful now c'mon and feel 'The Day After'
Twista done blew up and tore the whole industry down

You're gonna make it, you're gonna make it
You got to fight to survive, oh, you're gonna make it
You're gonna make it you've got to fight
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

You're gonna make it
If you believe it, you can get it
You're gonna make it, you've got to fight
