Various Artists – Braided Hair lyrics

From the same dirt from the heels of my ancestors
The naked roads and the fields where the pain festered
And I wonder where the hold came from
In the deeps of my heart make me yearn for the drum

It's the same place where the cross is burned
The same place where the loss was earned
It's the place where the floss was yearned
Gold teeth and bling ice on the ring baby sure

We've all got things that are hanging about
Things that make us cool
Things that make us whack
Things that make us mad
Things we wish we never had done

But they're just the things that make us real
Not the maps to guide where we go from here
The road twists and braids our hair
Until we all get there

I like that I don't know some mysteries
Ancient things and beginnings
Excited about the day
When I don't have to hear all the theories
My scalp needs some grease

It's the same place where the crosses burned
The same place where the loss was earned
The only way we all can learn
Is if we have these braids with the twist and turns so

We've all got things that are hanging about
Things that make us cool
Things that make us whack
Things that make us mad
Things we wish we never had done

But they're just the things that make us real
Not the maps to guide where we go from here
The road twists and braids our hair
Until we all get there

Walking in the race of life
Looking for my own pace
Not always wanting to but I have to
Sometimes feeling like I've bitten off
Much more than I could chew

But the wind goes though my hair
Lifts me up with ease not a crease
Hair full of grease no weave embracing me
It's you I see
I am you and you are me I see, yeah
I am you and you are me I see

We might survive as brothers, yeah
Or perish here as fools
Go place your bets
Don't bet too soon

Yeah, you might find me in another
Feels like someone you once knew
You know that face yeah, we all do
Braided hair

You know that face yeah, we all do
You know that face yeah, we all do
You know that face yeah, we all do
What's it all for? What's it all for?
