Donda
Kanye West Lyrics


There can never really be justice on stolen land
Are you really for peace and equality?
Or when my car is hooked up know you wanna follow me
Your laws are minimal
'Cause you won't even think about looking at the real criminal
This has got to cease
'Cause we be getting hype to the sound of the police
Now here's one little truth, open your eye
While you're checking out the boombox
Check out the exercise, take the word overseer
Like a sample, repeat it very quickly in a crew for example
Overseer, overseer, overseer, overseer
Officer, officer, officer, officer, yeah
Officer from overseer
You need a little clarity? Check out the similarity
The overseer rode around the plantation
The officer is off patrolling all the nation
The overseer could stop you from what you're doing
The officer will pull you over just when he's pursuing
The overseer had the right to get ill
And if you fought back he had the right to kill
The officer had the right to arrest
And if you fight back, he'll put a whole in your chest, woop
They both ride horses
"After four hundred years", says KRS-One
"I have no choices"

Can I hear me a little bit louder?

They will overcome

The Devil is using you, confusing you
Our job is to understand who is who
Righteous indignation in this nation
We gon' start a revolution in this basement
And at the end of the day it's truly restless
Y'all had y'all statistics and all them goofy questions
Y'all had y'all fake leaders don't worry we got it
And plus it's only twenty-one days to break a habit

Mama I need you to tuck me in
I done made some mistakes and they rubbed it in (boy)
I know you and grandma had enough of them (boy)
Why I gotta be so stubborn then? (boy)

I'm doin' this one for y'all
So we can end racism once and for all

How many prisons they gon' make? (all)
Watch the safe, one hand wash the other
Both hands wash the face

Lyrics
[Intro: Kanye West with Stalone]
Forever, yeah
Can you hear me? Yeah
Forever, yeah
Forever, forever, no
Oh yeah, glory, glory, glory
Glory, glory, glory, glory

[Spoken Word: Donda West, Kanye West, Kanye West & Stalone]
It feels good to be home
And to all of you, I thank you so much for your support
For your support of me for so many years
And more importantly, for the work you continue to do
What do you want me to talk about?
Well, he said something that was a little bit dangerous
He told me I could talk about anything I wanted to
And you know, I am my son's mother
The man I describe in the introduction as being so decidedly different
My son (When you're runnin' outta timе and you're not outta time)
And what made thе project extra special to me is
I got a chance to share not only what he has meant to me
But what he has meant to a generation (Change the time)
As one writer said, we came from somewhere
Not just from the wombs of our mothers and the seeds of our fathers
But from a long line of generations who came before us

[Chorus: The World Famous Tony Williams & Sunday Service Choir]
It's the kingdom (It's the kingdom)
And the power (And the power)
And the glory (And the glory)
Forever (Forever)
It's the kingdom (It's the kingdom)
And the power (And the power)
And the glory (And the glory)
Forever (Forever)

[Outro: Kanye West & Stalone, Donda West]
Forever, yeah
Forever, yeah
Forever, forever, no
Oh yeah, glory, glory, glory
What did I teach him? (Glory)
And why Kanye ain't scared?

I'd rather deal with the shame than take the weight of the lie
Every time we talk I just wait for the lies
Every time I get the food, I just wait for the flies
Look, just send your prayers up, they'll be waitin' in the skies
My, my, my, Miss American Pie
Was a hero after Katrina but that levee went dry
Mom met my dad back in '75
Two years later, the chosen has arrived
Holy, Holy, Holy Father
Hold me in an ocean worth of Holy Water
And David's slingshot, hope it throws you farther
You brought church to stadiums built for only soccer
When the world built on lies, the truth is a threat
Faith over the fortune, it kept you outta debt
It's snakes in money pits that you ain't found yet
Crooks behind the scene like, "He ain't drown yet?"
Rain bills from the ranch 'til the whole town wet
God's grace rains down, that's the holy fountain
Got twelve thousand acres full of holy mountains
See, you almost didn't make it, who are you without Him?
Holy, Holy, Holy Father, hold me in a ocean the size of Holy Water
Man, if plan A worked, you wouldn't know your daughter
For every tear you cried in South Carolina

@Ishmeal 'never abandon your family' came in the deluxe

Go listen to "DONDA (SNIPPET VIDEO) - Kanye West" - Kanye Tweeted this a few years ago, and then did nothing with it. It's missing from Donda. I'm so sad he never dropped that song. "By the blood of the lamb" sings the choir in the background, as his mom recites some verses from KRS one. It's an amazing track. I put that at the beginning of my Donda.

His mother sounds like she was a powerful lady. That can leave a gap in anyone’s soul. Praying for you Kanye 🙏🏾
