  • Searchin' every corner of my mind
    Lookin' for the answers I can't find
    I have my reasons and life has its lessons and
    I tried to be grateful and count all my blessings
    But heavy is the head that wears the crown

    Amen, in Jesus' name, yes I declare it
    Any little seed I receive, I have to share it
    Bruddas wanna break me down, I can't bear it
    But heavy is the head with the crown, I still wear it
    You can't hold me down, I still cope
    Rain falling down at the BRIT's, I'm still soaked
    Try to put a hole in our shit, we'll build boats
    Two birds with one stone, I'll kill both (what?)
    Pray I never lose and pray I never hit the shelf (two)
    Promise if I do that you'll be checkin' on my health (cool)
    If it's for my people I'll do anything to help
    If I do it out of love it's not to benefit myself, ooh
    Gotta stay around but make a comeback too
    I know my only mother wants her son back too
    They sayin' I'm the voice of the young black youth
    And then I say "Yeah, cool" and then I bun my zoot
    And now I'm

    Searchin' every corner of my mind
    (Search every corner, look for the answers)
    Lookin' for the answers I can't find
    (No, I can't find 'em, no silver lining)
    I have my reasons and life has its lessons
    I tried to be grateful and count all my blessings
    But heavy is the head that wears the crown

    Amen, in Jesus' name, oh yes I claim it
    Any little bread that I make I have to break it
    Bruddas wanna break me down, I can't take it
    I done a scholarship for the kids, they said it's racist
    That's not anti-white, it's pro-black
    Hang me out to dry, I won't crack
    All these fancy ties and gold plaques
    Never had no silver spoons in our mouths, we sold, like
    Don't comment on my culture, you ain't qualified
    Stab us in the back and then apologize
    If you knew my story you'd be horrified
    The irony of trappin' on a Boris bike
    Gotta stay alive and save my brother as well
    Look at all these legends on the cover of Elle
    Long time comin' but we come to prevail
    I guess a little bit of heaven has to come with the hell, you know

    Searchin' every corner of my mind
    (Search every corner, look for the answers)
    Lookin' for the answers I can't find
    (No, I can't find 'em, no silver lining)
    I have my reasons and life has its lessons
    I tried to be grateful and count all my blessings
    But heavy is the head that wears the crown
