Lyrics

Preach, preach, preach, preach, preach,
Preach, preach, preach, preach, preach

(Verse 1)
I've been thinking about the right way to enter the kingdom/
It led me to wonder what's my definition of freedom/
So many demons in my head making sure I don't free them/
Everyday they say that we're here so I can go and feed them/
It sounds good kind of deep but for real I'm shallow/
Maybe my heart is just full of hollows/
I want it easy so I chose to follow/
It's too damn hard to embrace my shadow/
I love options I don't wanna settle/
Hip-hop for Blacks is like heavy metal/
I think critically and they say I'm a rebel/
I understand everything in life is a battle/
I'm full of flaws, I break the laws/
I fight for Peace cause Love is war/
No I'm not sure your smile is pure/
But time will tell what's all that for/
How you act behind closed doors/
Shows what you're really standing for/
Show how you're feeling in your core/
like you I have much in stores/

(CHORUS)
You don't have to present yourself as someone you're not (PREACH)
You don't have to pretend that you have what you don't got (PREACH)
It's not failure if you gave everything you got (PREACH)
I'm not here to preach
I'm not qualified to teach

(Verse 2)
It's funny when it's sunny suddenly they want the rain/
And When the rain get to come in town they celebrate just for two days/
At what point do we get to appreciate the beauty of today/
I'm not trying to put your imperfections or mine on display/
Pick up the pace, don't hide your face don't act in haste they need to know this is our way/
This is how we operate, and calibrate when things are about to go the other way/
Do you have to spread the hate, to separate, to share the cake we all had to pay/
I'm here to communicate, to have a date with the fate or at least say hey/
Close your eyes see the vision/
It's so complete it don't need no revision/
They need to know we won't have no division/
We all go in no circumcision (HEYYYY)
Money won't be sufficient:
representation is more efficient/
Where's reparations in the conversation/
Til then there's no fair compensation/

(CHORUS)
You don't have to present yourself as someone you're not (PREACH)
You don't have to pretend that you have what you don't got (PREACH)
It's not failure if you gave everything you got (PREACH)
I'm not here to preach
I'm not qualified to teach

Verse 3)
My culture is my treasure why you wanna take it/
I don't talk I don't walk like you why you want me to fake it/
My creation is now yours you know you did not make it/
But my soul is made out of steel you'll never break it/
Knees on the floor/
knocking on Heaven's door/
I've been misled by what they said/
About the highest score/
My one and only goal/
Is to remain original/
But you want me to be another monkey on the show/

CHORUS) X 3
You don't have to present yourself as someone you're not (PREACH)
You don't have to pretend that you have what you don't got (PREACH)
It's not failure if you gave everything you got (PREACH)
I'm not here to preach
I'm not qualified to teach
