I was born in squalor, bred in pain
Taught to misunderstand the things I can’t explain
I was schooled to believe what will be, will be
To accept my lot in life for that’s my destiny

‘cause it’s just the living, it’s just how the thing set
Mi nah go scream, mi nah go bawl, mi nah go sit down and fret
Mi nah go lie, mi nah go tief, mi nah go kill for what’s mine
I will accept that ‘truth’, I will accept that line

But how do I reconcile the ‘truth’ in my head
That says go and be great, even though you’ll probably get dead
I’m so conflicted; I don’t know what to think
My heart is telling me yes but my mind says I will sink

I think I’ll hold a meds, to gain some understanding
To overcome this predicament that I find myself in
I just can’t accept that my life course is pre-ordained
For I am Yendor Sivad, the world should know my name

‘cause it’s just the living, it’s just how the thing set
Mi nah go scream, mi nah go bawl, mi nah go sit down and fret
Mi nah go lie, mi nah go tief, mi nah go kill for what’s mine
I will chart my destiny, for it is my time

I was born to be great and great I will be
My name will be carved in the annex of history
I will stand proud, as only I can
As I have the added advantage of being a black man

They tell me pride cometh before a fall
But like the Phoenix I will rise elevated and tall
Because my convictions won’t allow me to fail
So if I’m to be crucified, I will proudly wear my thorns and my nails

For it’s just the living, it’s just how the thing set
Mi nah go scream, mi nah go bawl, mi nah go sit down and fret
Mi nah go lie, mi nah go steal, mi nah tek what’s not mine
For I have the strength of my God and that makes me divine

This life’s not easy, but I’ll take it as it comes
All the challenges and trials I will overcome
And when I do, that’s when you will appreciate
The little things in life that makes this living great
Like the sun and the sea and the mountain and trees
Good friends, good food, great vibes and family
For we are Kings in our palace and we don’t even know it
So like Royalty stand tall for the world to see it

‘cause it’s just the living, it’s just how the thing set
Mi a go scream, mi a go shout , mi a go stand up and flex
Mi a go tek charge of my life ‘cause its mine
I’m going the full course, I’m taking the whole nine
