Nahko And Medicine For The People - Build A Bridge lyrics

Said prepare me for, for long battle
I am a witness, hold crystal bullets
I drop the hatchet, you won't forget this
Said prepare me for, for long battle
I am a witness, hold crystal bullets
I drop the hatchet, you won't forget this

Said, mine eyes have seen nothing but trouble
You must make peace with them gods and the devils
I can be rude, boy, I am not subtle
I tend to sneak in and burst all them bubbles
We are the ones, we been waiting to rumble
I torch my enemies out with a candle
Music is the weapon make empires crumble
We bring them bankers and wealthy to tremble

What we know is what we're owed
Can't be too careful, shoot flaming arrows
Hitting them wicked, burning them bridges
Said, what we know is what we're owed
Can't be too careful, shoot flaming arrows
Hitting them wicked, burning them bridges

I said I rep the misfits, (not the[?]) society
We struggle with housing, d**, and sobriety
We're not from here, but born here respectively
Immigrated cause America raped my country
My bridge 'ain't built with no white-man money
I'm on Indian time, you know you cannot rush me
I can be vicious, malicious, and ugly
A danger to darkness, to better run quickly

What we know is what we're owed
Can't be too careful, shoot flaming arrows
Hitting them wicked, burning them bridges
Said, what we know is what we're owed
Can't be too careful, shoot flaming arrows
Hitting them wicked, burning them bridges, said

I've come to build a bridge
So come, let's build
Build, build, build
I have come to build a bridge
So come, let's build
Build, build, build
I have come to build a bridge
So come, let's build
Build, build, build
I have come to build a bridge
So come, let's build
Build, build, build

I said, life was pretty crazy, I was 9 months old
Yeah, mama gave me up - 14 years old
Said, I don't give a sh**, grandmother, she was so bold
Son of that rape, my mama's body got sold
Not to say poppa didn't have a good soul
Cause he did give me the anger, I was born so cold
[Lyrics from: https:/lyrics.az/nahko-and-medicine-for-the-people/dark-as-night-hoka/build-a-bridge.html]
Raised white Christian in a white neighborhood
There was no bridges for me and my indigenous blood
I said I'm confused, identity crisis
Indigenous mastery is so timeless
Now I'm building bridges so that it will all make sense
Why I'm here with the music, so pa**ionate
Got to ride hard or die trying
Said, I am a rain cloud, storm white lighting
I am relentless stop at nothing
I'm el coyote, bridges building
Building, building, building
Building, building, building
Building, building, building

I said, I rock the one feather on me next head
Must stay humble, never be like chief headdress
Hang the flag upside down, I'm in distress
Never take no title out of deepest respect
Welcome to Aquarius, son, you're a legend
Guardian of the gate, it's gate number seven
I tame that beast and I ride the dragon
I reincarnate as a wild stallion

What we know is what we're owed
Can't be too careful, shoot flaming arrows
Hitting them wicked, burning them bridges
Said, what we know is what we're owed
Can't be too careful, shoot flaming arrows
Hitting them wicked, burning them bridges, said

I've come to build a bridge
So come, let's build
Build, build, build
I have come to build a bridge
So come, let's build
Build, build, build
I have come to build a bridge
So come, let's build
Build, build, build
I have come to build a bridge
So come, let's build
Build, build, build

Said, my people my earth, my country, my heart
In service for ever, a mission to better
My pa**ion, my fist, my heart, open it
Reclaim, recover, protect clean water
Said, I've come to live in peace
So come, let's live
Live, live, live
Said, I've come to live in peace
So come, let's live
Live, live, live
I have come to live in peace
So come, let's live
Live, live, live
I have come to live in peace
So come, let's live
