"Stay Woke" (Jessica Lá Rel)


Redbone remix (New Lyric by Jessica La Rel)

Daylight 
I woke up feeling like I ought to fear life 
I used to feel that way but now I know right 
I try to muster up my pride 
So long 
We waited for a place to call our home 
We got outlined in chalk outside of our homes 
Thinking we could change their minds 
If I want it I can have it 
If it's freedom I gotta make it my own 
If I want it I gotta take it 
So stay woke 
They'll be creeping 
You stay ready 
Or stay dreaming 
But I stay woke 
They'll be creeping 
When you close your eyes 
Too late 
We seen it all before, so it's just too late 
The past is but our proof so we can now say 
To trust is just a waste of time 
If I want it I can have it 
If it's freedom I gotta make it my own 
If i want it I gotta take it 
So stay woke 
They'll be creeping 
You stay ready 
While freedom dreaming stay woke 
They'll be creeping 
When you close your eyes

Mark 13:37 --  And Jesus said to them, “But what I say to you I say to all: Stay woke!”
