A real life tale of street survival and life inspiration!
With a fire hip hop beat and real down to earth strong lyrics reminiscent of Chuck D from Public Enemy, in a spoken word cadence, Soul Survivor is about the triumphs of a man grinding and persevering through all of the traps and obstacles that are set before him in life and succeeding! It’s about keeping God first regardless to whom or what! It honors the spirit of determination and winning!
I’m more than a conqueror I’m a soul survivor
You shouldn’t be hearing my voice right now
The enemy has been coming for me since I was a child
I was let loose into a world of abuse and crack vials
Pimps, prostitutes, con men, pranksters
Hostile gangsters, best friends ending up dead with lead in they heads
They were blood brothers
Cause they discovered anothers turf
Alcohol, coca colos and blunts
Shocking cribs, bullying exploiting punks
Running from popo, scaling fences and walls
Like the world would never end but most of us would fall
Our world was spinning so fast in this land of the lost
I remember fat rob saying “Stop the world I wanna get off”.
Later on I got a wifey and my child was born
Then unemployment and the bills came marching on
Causing tension and stress in my rest
Now I’m hard pressed to get out of this mess
Somebody said try Jesus
So I did my best
And pressed my way
Taking it day by day
Through the aches, pains and storms like hurricanes
I kept my faith and the sunshine came
Through the fire
I rose higher
And I’m here to let you know. The devils a liar
The devil couldn’t take my soul
I’m a soul survivor!
Stranger in a strange land
Trying to be the man that I am
But the enemy got a plan to break down my fam
So every day I turn the bible pages
And get divine light from saints and sages
From genesis to revelations
So although I deal with this business worlds cubicle nation
I’m totally aware of my soul salvation
You can’t break me down
I’ve been unemployed, underemployed and got back up now
The world frowns, but the angels applaud
Cause I’m aligned with the king of kings the lord of lords
I know you was told that religion is a fraud
But a personal relationship with God is the greatest reward.
I was supposed to be dead or in jail but I prevailed
With Christ I rose higher
I’m a soul survivor
