Tie My Hands Lyrics

We are at war with the uni
The sky is falling
And the only thing that can save us now
Is sensitivity and compassion

Dah, de dah, dah dah dah
Dah, de dah
Dah, de dah, dah dah dah
Dah, de dah
Ooooh

And I know one thing is for sure
I'm going to get my kicks before it all burns down

(Yeah!)
Some say tragedy's hard to get over
But sometime that tragedy means it's over, soldier
From the academy league of rollers
I deny being down though they seem to hold us
My, shoulders are strong, I prove them wrong
I ain't doing nothin' but movin' on, let the truth be known
But they talk that freedom matters
And didn't even leave a ladder, damn

I work at the corner store
We all got problems, problem
Who was goin' fight alone
No one's goin' save us now

How you feel, you're not alone
We're all just jealous, jealous
We don't reach the sky no more
We just can't overcome no

You tie my hands, what am I gonna be
What have I done so bad, what is my destiny (oh oh)
You tie my hands, what am I supposed to see
What have I done so bad, what am I gonna be (oh)

I, knock on the door, hope isn't home
Fate's not around, the luck's all gone (that's right)
Don't ask me what's wrong, ask me what's right
And I'm a tell you what's life, and did you know?
I lost everything, but I ain't the only one

First came the hurricane, then the mornin' sun
Excuse me if I'm on one
And don't trip if I light one, I walk a tight one
They try to tell me keep my eyes open
My whole city under water, some people still floatin'
And they wonder why black people still votin'
'Cause your president's still chokin'
Take away the football team, the basketball team
Now all we got is me to represent New Orleans, shit
No governor, no help from the mayor
Just a steady beatin heart, and a wish and a prayer
Let's pray

These friends they come and go, but I got family family
These kids so fast they grow, they learn so quickly now

But there's no where to go, but there's a future, future
Don't make this seem so low, and we can't overcome (no)

You tie my hands, what am I gonna be (what am I goin' to be?)
What have I done so bad, what is my destiny (what have I done)
You tie my hands, what am I supposed to see (what have I done)
What have I done so bad, what am I gonna be (oooh)

And if you come from under that water then there's fresh air
Just breathe baby, god's got a blessin' to spare
Yes, I know the process has so much stress (oh)
But it's the progress that feels the best
'Cause I came from the projects straight to success
And your next, so try, they can't steal your pride that's inside
Then find it and keep on grindin'

'Cause in every dark cloud there's a silver lining, I know

Yeah, yeah, yeah (oooh)
See, right now we just ridin' on love
And shine in the dark (take that money, make that money)
We ain't tryin' to do nothing be at the heart (take that money, love someone)
We need love, that's all now (I can't wait to stop the way.)

You tie my hands, what am I gonna be
(Yeah, bar right here in the USA, but)
What have I done so bad, what is my destiny (what have I done)
(Due to tragedy, looked on, by the whole world as a refugee)
You tie my hands, what am I supposed to see (what have I done)
(So, accept my emotion, do not take it as an offensive gesture)
What have I done so bad, what am I gonna be (oooh)

(It's just the epitome of my soul, and I must be me)

We got spirit y'all
We got spirit
We got soul y'all
We got soul
They don't want us to see

But we already know
