lyrics

VERSE 1
It could've been me wrapped around that pole
if I got into that vehicle, another statistical road toll
on that drenched October day
it could've been you in that white van, someone's prey
you living that life fetching water for miles
you spinning that Nike shoe, on that dial
exploiting, exploitation, the world can be so sad
make me shed a tear, for a fallen comrade
or with that welfare, a deadbeat dad
seein' your mum sniffing lines with a rolled up ad
so there's no money this week for groceries
scarred, can never see yourself earning trophies
the only life you know, isn't the only life that shows
few can glow, but everyone should be able to grow
could've been you or me, can't choose our start
our life, our plight, luck of the draw is right

CHORUS
I feel blessed...
schools on each corner, shelter over the scone
I feel blessed...
my nation isn't war torn, Israel, Iraq, Iran
I feel blessed...
no biscuit by my side as I go to sleep
I feel blessed...
never lost a loved one, wood touched, had to weep
blessed (blessed, blessed blessed)
blessed (blessed, blessed blessed
blessed (blessed, blessed blessed)
blessed blessed blessed blessed

VERSE 2
It could've been you in the car that that drunkard hit
with those cancerous cells in, take your pick
you hit with that stray bullet in that drive-by
you in that cafe at an unfortunate time
in one of the towers, on a vacation
living on a tectonic plate, I find it fascinating
and ask the question of why do people live there
always being worried and workin' to repair
is it just because houses are cheaper there
Look at N Z, they're normalised, a fucking' nightmare
not too mention underneath active volcanoes
ruins, no chance for, any potatoes
did these people not get, the fuckin' memo
hearing it raining red through the echoes
could've been you or me, can't choose our start
our life, our plight, luck of the draw is right

CHORUS

VERSE 3
I may seem to whinge on songs, rap like that
but I just tell it like it is, no doormat
everything can be improved and their is plenty wrong
but I still feel blessed, still here, mentally strong
physically too, recently been through some shit
but no complaining, got my limbs and my wit
got my eye sight, I can see Shakira
sunsets, Vic Falls, hearing for Ether
those rhymes, those times, get your hand off mine
those songs, Jigga tryin' to take Nas' shine
can try to knock down a seven-ten split
create this music, no counterfeit
all me, sometimes I'm too honest
on paper, in person, but, life be my song
could've been you or me, can't choose our start
our life, our plight, luck of the draw is right

CHORUS

about

Joe March Australia

I'm passionate about music and have been making it for a minute. I mainly create conscious hip hop where I can vent by putting my opinions down on 'wax'. Many other songs are tracks about the fairer sex.
