a deeper meaning not just rap.

A friend of mine in college suggested Frank Ocean to me my Junior Year, we were texting and he was trying to make conversation and surprisingly he did a good job haha especially when he suggested this guy – I immediately downloaded his music and not until today JUNE 7, 2011 did I really listen and try to understand the song “We All Try” – I looked up the lyrics online and came across this awesome website that broke the song down line by line and it just BLEW MY MIND AWAY…

here are the lyrics and here is the website that breaks it down đŸ™‚ hope it shakes up your world as it did mine.

I believe Jehovah Jireh
I believe there’s heaven, I believe in war
I believe a woman’s temple
Gives her the right to choose but baby don’t abort

I believe that marriage isn’t
Between a man and woman but between love and love

And I believe you when you say that you’ve lost all faith
But you must believe in something, something, something
You gotta believe in something, something, something

I still believe in man
A wise one asked me why
Cause I just don’t believe we’re wicked
I know that we sin but I do believe we try

We all try, the girls try, the boys try
Women try, men try, you and I try, try, we all try

[Verse 2]
I don’t believe in time travel
I don’t believe our nation’s flag is on the moon
I don’t believe our lives are simple
And I don’t believe they’re short, this is interlude
I don’t believe my hands are cleanly
Can’t believe that you would let me touch your heart
She didn’t believe me when I said that I lost my faith
You must believe in something, something, something
You gotta believe in something, something, something


ohh and just for kicks here is the youtube video:

Astu Mengesha – stay down blaze up.
