Vic Mensa – REBIRTH Lyrics

REBIRTH By Vic Mensa

Hey
How you doing
Folks been saying they see your Mugshot on the news
Well I’m not looking at that you know
I had surgery – I got a lot of pain
But we all do
I know you need to know we’re gonna get through it
Everything is going to be okay

Hurt a lot of people cause we hurt
Been in the game a long time a nigga feet hurt
We all get doubted sometimes as believers
But shit don’t change until you feel the pain of a rebirth
Rebirth

In the same month my debut album drop my pops had surgery on his neck
It left him paralyzed I saw the fear in his eyes, reflected in mine
Next to my mom watching him grieve
Wiping tears from her face with my heart on sleeve
Throwing up the Roc as I stood on stage with Hov
While my own father could barely walk like he’s two years old
And I’m gone on the road so mental state feels like the interstate
All of the travelling took its toll
Guru had a DJ set first night in Toronto
I was off the D’usse swimming in ace of spades
I hit the club with owner’s brothers over the head with the bottle
I was at my breaking point I couldn’t contain my rage
All the aggression that I was reflecting was just depression
Looking at album sales lower than I expected
I wrote my Odyssey on The Autobiography
Felt like Capitol ain’t pull through with all that they promised me
Tatted Alexandra name on my arm as a promise ring
Then I broke it like a joke, now I’m laughing at myself
It’s easier to place the blame on everybody else
I’m yelling fuck the world but it’s really a cry for help

Hurt a lot of people cause we hurt
Been in the game a long time a nigga feet hurt
We all get doubted sometimes as believers
But shit don’t change until you feel the pain of a rebirth
Rebirth

Drowning in controversy I made it my identity
I could be guilty of lack of empathy
Tryna play the hero it made me a public enemy
On point with message but too blunt with my delivery
I should’ve learned not to mix award shows with Hennessey
Point a finger that’s three fingers back in your direction
Sometimes you gotta take a L or two to learn a lesson
I dissed a mother’s dead son I’m sorry Mrs. Jackson
I’ll take the heat I gotta let it burn with my confessions
In the midst of the madness my baby sister had a psychotic break
Spent Christmas in a psych-ward not knowing if she’s in good hands like all state
That was a tall order for the fam she’s only 5’4″
Now I got my personal all tangled in my mic cord
Could either make you or break you or make you appreciate life more
The only difference is perspective you witnessed my crucifixion now welcome to my resurrection

Rebirth (rebirth, rebirth, rebirth, rebirth)
Oh oh oh
We will fly away oh oh oh oh oh
We’re still alive oh oh oh oh oh
Back from the dead oh oh oh oh oh
We’re still alive oh oh oh oh oh oh
Back from the dead oh oh oh oh oh
I’ll pick you up when you’re drowning I’ll hold you down
I’ll be your sun and provider and your protector (your protector)
I’ll be the one that you follow when you feel down (down, down, down)
We’ll fly away to the sun and we’ll fly away

Fly away
We’ll fly away

Fly away (We can go high high high high high high)
We’ll fly away

Fly away (We can go)
We’ll fly away

Fly away (We can go high high, go right now)
We’ll fly away

Fly away
We’ll fly away

Fly away
We’ll fly away

Fly away (higher and higher)
We’ll fly away

Fly away
We’ll fly away
Until God comes

Fly away
We’ll fly away
Higher and higher

Fly away
We’ll fly away (fly away)

Fly away
We’ll fly away

Fly away
We’ll fly away
