Blue Scholars - Second Chapter lyrics

(Here we are)
(Here we are)
(Here we are)

Now from the longest to the shortest 24 in a year,
From the verses to the chorus you've been longing to hear
The talk, story transmitted through verses, we persevered
We the presently last and future first from the spear
To the slingshot, we rock upon the solid rock of granite
We stand over the plan to hold the weapon with the fist and heal it with an open hand
Feelin' focused on the promise of a liberated land and I'm just a simple man
Gettin' caught crossin' the fire,
More often than not the fire crosses us,
And the cross is on fire
We martyrs it's not enough it's been time to dig and find the diamonds in the rough
And then refine them into weapons to cut up the belly open 'til we all fall out
'Cause the end of what it was is what it is right now
It's a great leap forward kinda different from Mao
Still drop it on the one like elevators to the ground
Now it's the turning of the page to the second chapter
A tragedy and comedy so cue the blood and the laughter
To survivors of economic and natural disasters livin' for the right here and not the here after
A handful of tracks each a snapshot to capture the trials and tribulations
And smiles since you've been waiting a while
We graduated in style, congratulations people of the word gather
Thank you all for your patience
