Nahko & Medicine For The People – Make A Change lyrics

If I make it out alive, I will make a change

[Verse 1]
I need a change, it’s evident
A transformation imminent
A chance for my soul’s intelligence to redefine lines of indifference
I ride past the spirit with the well scratched pad
Always looking at my poetry for the reasons I had
Never stopped and let someone else take the wheel
Now i’m in the backseat like "what the f*ck is real?"
Got to bury the hatchet
Bones no casket
The dead don’t dance to a liars message
So restless
Cross it off my checklist
Poetical warfare, a bear with horse hair
He’s reckless, acts like he’s got a deathwish
True hey hoka, tricking the trickster
Laws of nature, loyal creature
Son of the most high, willing to wager my plan
And imma stick to it
And imma ultimately liberate my consciousness
I want the change
I will make a change

[Chorus]
If I make it out alive, i’ll come out on the other side
If the sacrifice I owe is the reason that I die
And I know this too shall pass, so I put it in the past
And of all the things I fear, it isn’t now and it isn’t here
I’ll make a change, I will make a change

[Verse 2]
Well it comes at a cost, and that’s obvious
My list of distractions is infinite
My delusions of grandeur are all equipped
With dark lords, back doors, and some wizard sh*t.
Well I did not know they were gonna choose me
And I oughta take myself more seriously.
Cause what comes through me no it ain’t no trick
And I know that all of us are born with different gifts, so
Lift yourself from darkness take a couple steps back
On an abstract attack I fell beneath the cracks
I didn’t come here to drone out and drag my feet
Stand in quicksand both hands and accept defeat
I got work to do, let me get back at it
The clock is tickin’, I can hear it through the static
Now i’m not being dramatic, enemies don’t sleep
In fact some aren’t human and that’s hard to believe
Cause i’m such a visual person, my third eye don’t lie
He’s a wise guy inside, even fooled himself twice
Thinking maybe i’m not ready to be leading the way
I mean f*ck, I’m only human, bound to make some mistakes
An earthquake took place within my lifetime of fear, I hear this too shall pass, the beginning is near

I want the change
I will make a change

[Chorus]
If I make it out alive, i’ll come out on the other side
If the sacrifice I owe is the reason that I die
And I know this too shall pass, so I put it in the past
And of all the things I fear, it isn’t now and it isn’t here
I’ll make a change, I will make a change

[Verse 3]
I wanna walk in righteousness
But I keep tripping over ditches of my selfishness
I wanna pass a fist to a pacifist
I keep beating round the bush instead of facing it
So i’m facing it, some gladiator sh*t
Yeah i’m rippin' over rhythms, yeah i’m healin' it
But it’s non-stop knocks from the mountain top, to the city block. To the tanks: stop and block
Another brother got shot dead on the sidewalk
While the cops doing inside jobs and I'm shocked
So my hands are stretched out to the sky
Got some poems in my left and a gun in my right
And my eyes’ll cry over bulletproof pride
Cause I know I didn’t come to make it out alive
And I thrive in the midst of a battle
Front lines you can see me in the struggle
These are the songs of a walk towards revival
Even brave men can put down their rifles
I got my orders, and imma follow them
You can find me kickin back inside the lion’s den
I’m making friends and amends with some evil men
Gonna bring them in and inject them with the medicine
Imma do no harm, but i’m a take no shit
And i’m a build a bridge out of the emptiness
And then potentially well imma live to be the hardest working bear in the f*cking industry
I will make a change

I will make a change
I will make a change
I will make a change
