  • There's a war (there's a war)

    The kingdom's on fire, the blood of a young messiah
    I see sinners in a church, I see sinners in a church
    Sometimes I might be introvert
    There's a war inside, I hear battle cries
    Mothers burying sons, young boys playing with guns
    The devil's a liar, fulfil your wildest desires
    Now I don't wanna be the one to doctor this
    But if you can't feel pain then you can't feel the opposite
    The fight between the Yin and Yang's a fight you'll never win
    I study humans, that makes me an anthropologist
    I'm not into politics but I know it's dark times
    Parts of the world still living in Apartheid (there's a war, there's a war)
    But if I don't take this winner's flight that's career suicide
    Though I should've been a friend when your grandma died
    I see the illness eat my aunt laying in her bed
    I see her soul rising as her body gets closer to death

    Find a way, I'll find a way
    The world's not over
    I will make it, don't you cry
    In God we trust
    'Cause we're not alone

    I need a license to feel (I can't feel)
    Internal wounds and I'm not tryna be healed (no I don't, no I don't, no)
    I sabotage what we are trying to build
    'Cause of feelings I keep inside but it's time to reveal (reveal, reveal)
    I hate the thought of just being a burden
    I hate that these conversations are surfaced
    Simz the artist or Simbi the person?
    To you I'm smiling but really I'm hurting
    I dedicate my life and gave my heart over twenty-something years
    Left wondering how I even feel
    Or was it was even worth it?
    I bottle up and then spill it in verses
    One day I'm wordless, next day I'm a wordsmith
    Close to success but to happiness I'm the furthest
    At night I wonder if my tears will dry on their own
    Hoping I will fulfil Amy's purpose
    Angel said, "Don't let you ego be a disturbance"
    Inner demon said, "Motherfucker, you earned this"
    Like they strip you of everything you're deserving
    Realize there is a prison in us, we are conditioned as fuck
    Man, it's like they can't sleep 'til our spirit is crushed
    How much fighting must we do? We've been fearless enough
    All we see is broken homes here and poverty
    Corrupt government officials, lies and atrocities
    How they talking on what's threatening the economy
    Knocking down communities to re-up on properties
    I'm directly effected, it does more than just bother me
    Look beyond the surface, don't just see what you wanna see?
    My speech ain't involuntary
    Project with intention straight from my lungs
    I'm a black woman and I'm a proud one
    We walk in blind faith not knowing the outcome
    But as long as we're unified, then we've already won

    Find a way, I'll find a way
    The worlds not over
    I will make it, don't you cry
    In God we trust
    'Cause we're not alone

    And so it begins
    The base is an amalgamation of everything
    Rules are not to be played by rebels
    The story of never ending
    Your introversion led you here
    Intuition protected you along the way
    Feelings allowed you to be well balanced
    And perspective gave you foresight
    The top of the mountain is nothing without the climb
    Only the strong will survive
    Only the strong will survive

    Alone but not lonely
    Your truth unveils with time
    As you embark on a journey
    Of what it takes to be a woman Writer/s: Dean Wynton Josiah Cover, Simbiatu Abisola Abiola Ajikawo
