New Music! Sho Baraka – Their Eyes Were Watching

Lyrics

[Intro: Choir Sample & Ekemini Uwan]
Lord, I keep so busy praisin’ my Jesus
Keep so busy praisin’ my Jesus
Keep so busy praisin’ my Jesus
Ain’t got time to die
Their eyes were watching

[Chorus: Choir Sample]
Ain’t got time to die, Lord
Ain’t got time to die, Lord
Ain’t got time, praisin’ my Jesus
Ain’t got time to die, Lord
Ain’t got time, praisin’ my Jesus
Ain’t got time to die, Lord

[Verse 1: Sho Baraka, Choir Sample & Ekemini Uwan]
Hello, America
Please stop with the eulogies
I wrote my own narrative
You don’t know what to do with me, yeah
I was once broken
Now I’m a working collage
I’m the thief on the cross (Ain’t got time to die, Lord)
I’m still hanging with God
My Savior walked on water
My ancestors can fly
My skin, it doesn’t crack
My art travels through time
Jesus slept in the grave
But he rose, feeling fine, ’cause
Ain’t got time to die, Lord (Wake up)
I’m Palace roaming
I’m Moses in most of my moments
It’s hard to find yourself
In the land of your opponents
Your brothers might trip you
So keep your feet stable
Avoid walking with canes
Everybody ain’t able
I catalog my losses
But I’m walking in victory
I see what you love
By where you’re putting your energy
What’s your identity
Apart from white supremacy (We black)
Do you love yourself
Or do you just envy your enemy?
Let me suggest, I am far from oppressed
I am nobody’s inferior
Joy’s in my interior
Liberation in spirit love
I see life in the mirror, ’cause
Ain’t got time to die
Their eyes were watching

[Chorus: Choir Sample & Sho Baraka]
Ain’t got time, praisin’ my Jesus
Ain’t got time to die, Lord (See for ourselves)
Ain’t got time, praisin’ my Jesus
Ain’t got time to die, Lord
Ain’t got time, praisin’ my Jesus (The clock is ticking)
Ain’t got time to die, Lord (But I don’t listen)
Ain’t got time, praisin’ my Jesus (Think for ourselves)
Ain’t got time to die, Lord

[Verse 1: Sho Baraka, Choir Sample & Ekemini Uwan]
When you live in the valley
Every hill looks steep
When you scared to walk on water, yeah
Everything looks deep
I been broke into pieces
But I still got peace
I got 99 problems
And one lost sheep
It takes some dark hours
For cowards to feel empowered
My clock was at Tuskegee
Your clock probably was Howard
Your eyes on the times
You woke, ready to speak up
But with so many problems (Ain’t got time to die, Lord)
You’re exhausted tryna keep up
I hit my knees and I prayed
To the Jesus of Norway
I said “I’m all yours
Please Lord, have your way”
He said “the Jesus of Sudan
Would better understand”
But my man looks so poor
He can’t pay for my sins
But he looks like my kin
I grinned, I’m black as Heaven
I’m made in God’s image
Nobody can change my settings
Amen, got off my knees
And put it into my search
It’s easy to sell your soul
When you don’t know what it’s worth
And now for the benediction

[Outro: Sho Baraka & Ekemini Uwan, Choir Sample]
You can dance in your depression
You’re rich in a recession
You belong here
Your name is on the guest list
I been feeling restless
Me and God been wrestling
Ain’t got time to die, Lord
We turning bane into blessings
Learning life from the lessons
I have a few answers
But a whole lot of questions
What’s life in the chaos
I’m taking suggestions
Ain’t got time to die
