[Robin Thicke talking:] We are at war with the universe, the sky is falling And the only thing that can save us now Is sensitivity and compassion [Singing:] Daa da da, da da da daa da da Daa da da, da da da daa da da [Talking:] But I know one thing's for sure I'm gonna get my kicks before it all burns down [Lil Wayne:] Yeah Some say tragedy's hard to get over But sometimes that tragedy means it's over Soulja, from the academy, league of rollers I deny being down Though they seem to hold us My shoulders are strong I prove 'em wrong I ain't doing nothing but moving on Let the truth be known But they talked that freedom at us And didn't even leave a ladder, damn [Robin Thicke:] I work at the corner store We all got problems, problems No one's gonna fly down low No one's gonna 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 [Chorus: Robin Thicke] You tie my hands what am I gonna be? What have I done so bad? What is my destiny? You tie my hands what I am I suppose to see? What have I done so bad? What am I gonna be? [Lil Wayne:] I, knock on the door, hope isn't home Fate's not around the lucks all gone Don't ask me what's wrong Ask me what's right And I'ma tell you what's life And did you know? I lost everything, but I ain't the only the one First came the hurricane, then the morning sun Excuse me if I'm on one And don't trip if I light one I walk a tight one They try tell me keep my eyes open My whole city underwater, Some people still floatin' And they wonder why black people still voting 'Cause your president still choking Take away the football team, the basketball team And all we got is me to represent New Orleans, shit No governor, no help from the mayor Just a steady beating heart and a wish and a prayer [Robin Thicke:] These friends they come and go But I got family, family These kids so fast they grow They learn so quickly now That there's nowhere to go That there's no future, future Don't make this seem so low And we can't overcome, no [Chorus: Robin Thicke] You tie my hands what am I gonna be? What have I done so bad? What is my destiny? You tie my hands what I am I suppose to see? What have I done so bad? What am I gonna be? [Lil Wayne:] And if you come from under that water Then there's fresh air Just breathe baby God's got a blessing to spare Yes I know the process is so much stress But it's the progress that feels the best 'Cause I came from the projects straight to success and you're next So try they can't steal your pride it's inside Then find it and keep on grinding 'Cause in every dark cloud there's a silver lining I know... [Outro: Lil Wayne] Yeah, yeah, yeah See right now we just riding on love A shine in the dark We aint tryna do nothing be at the heart We need love That's all now [Chorus: x2] You tie my hands what am I gonna be? What have I done so bad? What is my destiny? You tie my hands what I am I suppose to see? What have I done so bad? What am I gonna be? Yeah, born right here in the USA But, due to tragedy looked on by the whole world as a refugee So accept my emotion Do not take it as an offensive gesture It's just the epitome of my soul And I must be me We got spirit y'all, we got spirit We got soul y'all, we got soul They don't want us to see, But we already know
