GENKiDAMA
Arkh Zeus Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Everything after 17 has been a blur
Roller coasters really reiterated my worth
The only way that I'm gonna make it is with my words
I told the gang, no complaints, and they all concur
Still not trying hard to be heard
So respect the energy or lay in the dirt
Yours isn't needed so might as well give it back to Earth
Write on your tombstone something from me that you learned
It's probably something that you ain't deserve
But I guess that you live and learn
I never said that I got all of the answers
Plus, who's to say that I ain't still hurt?
And I still bear the burden
Who gives a fuck if I'm hurting?
I got a much bigger purpose
Yeah...
I got a much bigger purpose
Who gives a fuck if I'm hurting?
I got a much bigger purpose
Energy, energy, energy
Energy, energy
Energy, energy
I got translations, so the people stand with me
I got translations, so the people stand with me
I got translations, so the people stand with me
I'm tryna save the world, so won't you share your chi with me?
I got translations, so the people stand with me
I got translations, so the people stand with me
I got translations, so the people stand with me
I'm tryna save the world, so won't you share your chi with me?
How badly do you want to save the world?
How badly do you want to save the world?
How badly do you want to save the world?
How badly do you want to save the world?
How badly do you want to save the world?
How badly do you want to save the world?




How badly do you want to save the world?
How badly do you want to save the world?
