14. We Shall Overcome

Unite
by The O.C. Supertones



 

I've been holding back my rhyme to long
Let it go and unleash the fury of my old school flow
I'm no superstar more like a John Doe
But I'm badder then the water down in Mexico
Oh no, a rock n' roller man who's not allowed to be rap
But I write what I like and I like the boom bap
The rhyme's in the front and the beat's in the back
A trunk full of funk and a page full of fact

Chorus
Right about now I'd like to hear everyone say
Yes oh yes we shall overcome
My fans got a job
Are we gonna get it done?
Yes oh yes we shall overcome

I can't be shy I've gotta come with it
No fear here I sing and bring it
In Christ you've got no right livin' timid
He's light in the dark and hope for the wicked
There's a land of the dead called planet earth
And a race called man walks dead from birth
And the beast and man both bear the curse
Come from the womb but retrun to dirt

Chorus

Here's what I do I hope I get through
So cling to what's true and tell the world too
Cause some live in fear, oppression from peers
These kids that smoke weed, these kids that drink beers
Who don't want to hear what you got to say
And they shut their ears and laugh cause you pray
But don't be afraid, that used to be me I used to mock God
But I was empty

Chorus


2004 The O.C. Supertones / BEC Recordings

Behind the Song:
'I've always liked the phrase 'church militant' it sounds so tough. It's difficult to believe when we see the sorry state of the church, but the church is still the manifestation of the kingdom of God on earth, against which 'the gates of hell shall not prevail.' - Matt Morginsky (The O.C. Supertones)
