When I get older I will be stronger They'll call me freedom Just like a wavin flag Born from a throne Older than Rome But violent prone Poor people zone But it's my home All I have known Where I got grown But now its gone Out of the darkness In came the carnage Threatening my very survival Fractured my streets And broke all my dreams Now Feels like defeat to wretched retreat So we strugglin' Fighting to eat And we wonderin' If we'll be free We cannot wait for some faithful day It's too far away so right now I'll say When I get older I will be stronger They'll call me freedom Just like a waving flag (And then it goes back x3) Aho aho aho So many wars settling scores All that we've been through And now there is more I hear them say love is the way Love is the answer that's what they say But were not just dreamers Of broken down grievers Our hand will reach us And we will not see ya This can't control us No it can't hold us down We gon pick it up even though we still struggling Au nom de la survie (In the name of survival) And we wondering Battant pour nos vies (Fighting for our lives) We patiently wait For some other day Thats too far away so right now I say So we strugglin' Uh, well alright How come when the media stops covering And there's a little help from the government We forget about the people still struggling And assume that its really all love again nahh See we don't have to wait for things to break apart If you weren't involved before it's never too late to start You probably think that it's too far to even have to care Well take a look at where you live what if it happened there? You have to know the urge to make a change lies within And we can be the reason that they see the flag rise again When I get older I will be stronger They'll call me freedom Just like a wavin' flag And then it goes back And then it goes back Then it goes back So we strugglin' When I get older When I get older I will be stronger Just like a waving flag
