Still we rise
Rastaman open your eyes, yeah

I rise from the concrete
'Cause the earth was my bed
And the sky was my roof, yes
I rise up from the concrete
Man was searching to find his bread
Yeah, oh yeah

And even though it seems hard
I'm gonna hold up my head
Whoa now, whoa now
And even though it seems hard
I'm gonna hold up my head

And if I'm inna want, you don't know
If I'm inna need, you don't know
My necessities, no cash flow
Hey, where's my next meal coming from?
You don't know

Jah make a way
In desolate places He will find our bread
Be not dismayed, it's that powers that guide
I from ancients of old

I rise, oh, I rose up from that concrete
Whoa now, whoa, 'cause the earth was my bed
And the sky was my roof, aye
Dreadlock rise up from the concrete, Lawd
Searching to find my bread, whoa now

'Cause what? You see my smiling face
And you think all is great
But if you knew the other half
Then bredrin', you would laugh
