Tie My Hands Submit Correct Lyrics

We are at war with the universe, the sky is fallin
And the only thing that can save us now is sensitivity and compassion
But I know one thing's for sure
I'm gonna get my kicks before it all burns down

Yeah, some say tragedy is hard to get over
But sometime that tragedy means it's over, soulja
From the academy league of rollers
I deny bein down, though they seem to hold us

My shoulders are strong, I prove them wrong
I ain't doin nothin but movin on, let the truth be known
But they talk that freedom matters
And didn't even leave a ladder, damn

I work at the corner store, we all got problems, problems
No ones gon fly that low, no one's gon save us now
How you feel? You're not alone, we're all just jealous, jealous
We don't reach the sky no more, we just can't overcome, no

You tie my hands, what am I gonna be?
What have I done so bad? What is my destiny?
You tie my hands, what am I supposed to see?
What have I done so bad? What am I gonna be?

I knock on the door, hope isn't home
Fates not around, the lucks all gone
Don't ask me whats wrong, ask me whats right
And Ima tell you whats life

And did you know I lost everythin? But I ain't the only one
First came the hurricane then the mornin sun
Excuse me, if I'm on one
And don't trip if I light one, I walk a tight one

They try to tell me keep my eyes open
My whole city under water, some people still floatin
And they wonder why black people still votin
Cause your president's still chokin

Take away the football team, the basketball team
Now, all we got is me to represent New Orleans, shit
No governor, no help from the mayor
Just a steady beatin heart and a wish and a prayer, lets pray

These friends they come and go but I got family, family
These kids, so fast they grow, they learn, so quickly, oh
But there's nowhere to go, but there's future, future
Theyll make this seem so low and we can't overcome, oh

You tie my hands, what am I gonna be?
What have I done so bad? What is my destiny?
You tie my hands, what am I supposed to see?
What have I done so bad? What am I gonna be?

And if you come from under that water then theres fresh air
Just breathe, baby, Gods got a blessin to spare
Yes, I know the process has so much stress
But it's the progress that feels the best

Cause I came from the projects straight to success
And youre next, so try, they cant steal your pride, it's inside
Then find it and keep on grindin
Cause in every dark cloud theres a silver linin', I know

Yeah, yeah, yeah
See right now we just ridin on love and shinin in dark
We aint tryna do nothin, be at the heart
We need love, that's all now, thats all

You tie my hands, what am I gonna be?
What have I done so bad? What is my destiny?
You tie my hands, what am I goin to see?
What have I done so bad? What am I gonna be?

You tie my hands, what am I gonna be?
What have I done so bad? What is my destiny?
You tie my hands, what am I goin to see?
What have I done so bad? What am I gonna be?
