Propaganda – Raise The Banner lyrics

You know, you it hit me one night I was reading my daughter
A bedtime story and uhm, I noticed something
You know every time I read this story it never fails,
You know the tortoise he always wins

This ain't a game standard, better raise the banner
You should demand better, homie, raise the banner
Testify, rally cry, under the banner
Jaja kiki si, follow the banner
Uh, for your children, for your neighbours, for your communities,
Follow the banner!
Everybody, unashamed, lock your arms, plant your feet,
Look around, they need you! Follow the banner

Eey yo, tнos, tнas, atйis, quнas; consider your influence,
The Lord wants one fнas
This ain't about ego, stop thinking so selfishly
Called to be the best is what's best for our community,
Consistency, change the future of a family,
When one goes to college, it breaks the cycle of poverty
I know a ex-vice lord dropped his flags, and picked up the pulpit,
Put a price on his head
What caught us in a hairstyle, brave in the drought,
And just last week he baptized and got him put the head out!
My cousin Era shootin' kites to aunt Carolin about how he hates his life
And tell me a lil' more about Christ,
Well versed in gang talk, fooled them ogs and them prison guard,
Now he walks a yard he owns, no could'a should'a would'a's,
Ask all my kin, folks, I read the story a million times,
Tortoise always wins

Better husbands, better fathers, more servants, more diligence
No excuses, they are useless
You can do this, follow the banner
It takes discipline, to be dead to sin,
Can't do it alone, you need your kin
Just keep the pace, understand the race,
You ain't gotta be fast, just don't run out of gas
No honorable mentions
Leave no leftovers,
Licked the plate of life clean and thanks to Elohim,
No Ponzi schemes, just excellence, just reverence - He is our banner
Just look around, examine creation, it's beautiful ain't it?
The pictures he painted
B-line the finish line, don't mind if you quote me
Ask why we ain't hot yet? We cookin' ours slowly
