L.I.F.E. Long - Move! Get Up! Lyrics

Move! Get Up!

L.I.F.E. Long - “Move! Get Up!”
[Emcee(s): L.I.F.E. Long]
[Producer(s): Black Panther]

[Intro: Sample from [?]]
[?]: Hello! We’re standing on a street corner in New York City. Few moments, you’re gonna hear all the sounds of this street through binaural reproduction

[Interlude 1: L.I.F.E. Long]
Yeah, yeah. Come on. What? [?] word, word. Yeah. Jah bless, y’all. Yeah, Jah bless, y’all. Jah bless your life

[Verse 1: L.I.F.E. Long]
It’s just
Another New York story of pain and struggle felt
Worldwide. Shout-out to those who hustle to get their
Name up productively, staying alive, survive
Through whatever you do, working to survive. Some get
Caught up in 9-to-5’s, wasting time. Plus bills
Unpaid and other talents can’t shine, so I’ll
Balance both like I’m supposed to. Long nights
In studios. Can’t sleep—rent’s due. Twenty-
-four hours, seven days a week walk the streets
Even without a disc, man, I’m hearing beats
At my job, on the low, crafting rhymes. Knowing now’s
My time. [?] defined. My exact
Calculation of coordinates of my movements
Improvement is my daily task, traveling on cement
Of foreign grounds, leaving marks, putting it down
Proper like no stress, arrived lost, now found

[Hook: L.I.F.E. Long]
This is my presentation. No time wasting
Forget turning back. There’s much more facing
Get up, move. It’s time to show and prove
Balance your scale, never quit, never lose
This is my destination. No time wasting
Forget turning back. Yo, there’s much more facing
Get up, move. It’s time to show and prove
Balance your scale, never quit, never lose

[Verse 2: L.I.F.E. Long]
This is my
Autobiography of my views seen. Letting the
Listener hear the message in between. The concept
I converse with hip hop fiends. Truth is
Days getting shorter as we move. Destined to create
Hits to show and prove. Many verses rocked
That left impressions to few. Holding it, never quitting
Studying lessons, paying dues. We all got
Blues sung in different tones. I’ve grown to under-
-stand negative unfortunately blown out of
Context, searching for rites of existence. I’ll pump
My fist as a reaction against foolishness
This government stay with their politricks, corruption, lies
Trillion-dollar missiles built to blow up skies
There’s no question that these are the time we got
To go out for yours and mine, stay organized
We can’t be stopped if combined

[Hook: L.I.F.E. Long]
This is my destination: hard work and dedication
No time wasting. There’s much more facing
Life’s lessons given for reasons—no choice
To each his own, shine like expressed voice

[Verse 3: L.I.F.E. Long]
This is the
Sequel to the end story. Not televised or
Seen on VHS or DVD. Definitely
Far from many unsolved, fictitious mystery
This country was built on bloodshed. It’s stormy
Confusion in the paragraphs taught to student bodies
This whole world economy fluctuates off the minority
Putting in works and shackle to steal slavery
We’re corporate now but to a working-class society
The main priority is for Babylon to get richer
We stay poorer while problems be getting thicker
The sick even sicker ‘cause we can’t afford healthcare
So many negatives seen, the eyes can’t bear, so I’ll
Stay close to God with no fear, move each
Day, reacting on actions brought forth, travel
Like a guiding star from the north, feeding on
New grounds, directing people towards that next-level course

[Hook: L.I.F.E. Long] (x2)
This is my presentation. No time wasting
Forget turning back. There’s much more facing
Get up, move. It’s time to show and prove
Balance your scale, never quit, never lose, yo
This is my destination: hard work and dedication
No turning back. There’s much more facing
Get up, move. It’s time to show and prove
Balance your scale, never quit, never lose, yo
