Lyrics:I'm the sum total of my ancestors
I carry their DNA
We are representatives of a long line of
people
And we carried them around either with
This long line of people
That goes back to
the beginning of time
And when we meet - they meet other lines of people
And we say bring
together the lines of me.

When I look back over the years
at the things that brought
tears to my eyes
papa said we have to be wise
to live long lives
now i
recognise
what my father said before he dies
vocalise things I've left unsaid
left my
spirit unfed for too long
I'm coming home to my family
Where i can be strong
Be who I
planned to be
Within me my ancestory
Givin' me continuity
Would it be remiss to continue
in this way
would you rather I quit
come with the other shit
making people's hips
sway
lip service I pay but i'm nervous
i pray for all the mothers who get no sleep
like
a lifeline I light lines cause my compassion is deep
for the people who fashioned me my soul to
keep
and this is who i happen to be
and if I don't see that I'm strong then I wont
be

This is what my Daddy told me
I wished he would hold me
A little more
than
he did
But he taught me my culture
And how to live positive
I never wanna shame
The
blood in my veins and bring pain
to my sweet grandfathers face
in his resting place
I
make haste to learn and not waste
everything my forefathers earned in tears
for my
culture

Fall back again
Crawl from the warm water

for my
culture

water to air
you're on your feet again
your feet again.
Hello Dad,
remember me?
I?m the man you thought I?d never be.
I?m the boy who you reduced
