Evolution Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Yo, inhale, exhale
Been a long time coming
Still a long way to go
Evolution of manhood
Evolution, revolution

Born with sight but became sightless
Rehabilitated visions from being frightened
In the dark, just bits of light
When lightning sparks, thunder rumbled

Chasing courage from the heart
Searching for solitude without a solitary card
Knees bleeding but proceeding to pray to God
Forever humble but before a man boys stumble

Before there was peace vast lands had crumbled apart
From the truth a great distance
Met with many guides to provide assistance
To shorten that distance with me and the Maker
The mind was overthrown by the undertaker

The Devil's a faker, see he lied to me
Singing sweet sad songs to mesmerize
But my eyes have seen four dimensions
Now gather your strength for all these bad intentions

That you seem to get when you get a little older
Days a lot colder, used to cry upon my mama's shoulder
Till pop finalized it, I analyzed it, can fantasize
With your manhood, make your plan good

With the back up, unfortunately niggas act up
Seems to be no solution, too many facing execution
Then I know many ready to leave the revolution
On their evolution to manhood, manhood

When a boy becomes a man
Takes time to understand
The ways of the world today

When a boy becomes a man
Takes time to understand
The ways of the world today

Step by step, day by day
Don't let the negative vibes lead the 'Cyde astray
We keep the positive vibes till everything is okay
On the evolution to manhood, to manhood

We realized it then re-devised it then exercised it
Got connected and we checked and it's correct
That the soul extends far beyond this fleshy existence
The rest is still trapped in ignorance, giving resistance

From a distance, interference from far away
But neither Tim nor Anfernee had a harder way
On getting here, I'm spitting clear
Connecting with the energies from near and far away

Karma, karma
Come back like a ricochet
To hit ya so I'm coming with the scripture
For the fixture, get the picture?

Step by step, day by day
Don't let the negative vibes lead the 'Cyde astray
We keep the positive vibes till everything is okay
On the evolution to manhood, to manhood
