lyrics

Yeah, uh
Five Steez, Mordecai
As a child, you have dreams, y'know (Ooooohhhh)
Sometimes, you put them on the back burner
But no matter what, you have to go after what you believe in
Let's go

Since a little kid, wished to be fly
Here's what I did, start to get high
It's hard where I live, just to get by (I survive)
So my all I give, just to survive (Yeaaahh, yeeeaaaah)

Times is rough so my rhymes is tough
I'm trying to size it up, count a thousand bucks (uh huh)
Ride a round wid us, a whole pound we puff
My mic loud enough, the whole crowd erupt (yeah)
From the words that I share
With the persons in here with the herb in the air
Pour me a drink, I prefer me a beer
Till I talk so slick, get girls by the pair (yu zimme)
The good life, that's what we all want
Good wife, consigliere, confidante
Blinded by the dream since our teens
From the screen to the dons that we seen
I remember thinking we was untouchable
'cause my bredrin fada used to run a crew
He went to school, now a corporate youth
I'm doing music, he ask why I still do this

Since a little kid, wished to be fly (yeah, yeah)
Here's what I did, start to get high
It's hard where I live, just to get by (But I'm a dreamer, I'ma survive)
So my all I give, just to survive (Yeaaahh, yeeeaaaah)

It's not just about the fascination though (uh huh)
It's about the words and how I make 'em flow (yeah)
Everybody has a little thug in their heart
So they listen rap but I had love for the art
I used to play ball, music took over
Used to be a cadet so I coulda been a soldier
And fight for what cause? I could be studying laws
Like Norman Manley, UWI probably ban me (whoo)
RIP John Maxwell, Aggrey Brown
We carry Macs, SG I was hanging round
Repping BP, at GH, banging sounds
Peace Wall$street, the legacy handed down (yeah)
The dream is still alive, we can feel the vibe
They pay attention now, time to build and rise
I said 'First Coast', that became the banner
Let's put in the work and just save the chatter

Since a little kid, wished to be fly (yeah, yeah)
Here's what I did, start to get high
It's hard where I live, just to get by (But I'm a dreamer, I'ma survive)
So my all I give, just to survive (Yeaaahh, yeeeaaaah)

And thrive
Keep your dreams alive
Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
