lyrics

Oh, got world fucked up for no damn reason
Its true It's a bit of me a debit of you
I know it's hard to hear you don't hear it but
I hear there's bliss and ignorance

I don't wanna hurt nobody
Or be alone
So take me back to Africa
Or Barbados
Take me to the motherland

Take me to the motherland
Take me to the motherland

Damn, been so still, so stagnant
Trying to love, but being judged
No they don't know your damages
And you don't know there heart
How could you understand it?
Appreciate perpespective 

See, I don't wanna hurt nobody
Or be alone
So take me back to Africa
Or Barbados
Take me to the motherland

No I don't wanna be ashamed
Of who I am
Don't encroach for any reason
On where I stand
Take me to the motherland

When you look at us
We don't fit your code
Of what you'd expect
Given code of conduct

Can't afford to assume
In a world with such medians

Like a fire
I will rise from the ground
Ill be the light in the darkness

Like a fire
You can’t put out
I will rise, I will rise, I will rise

Like a fire
I will rise, I will rise, I will rise

Wont you take me, take me (vamp)
To the motherland
