Lyrics

Lion of the TRIBE

You’re really not a man till your father dies
Cause reality hits you different on this other side
When you put aside the aching that you feel inside

Just to focus on the desolation in your mother’s eyes
Her tears dropping off her elbow like a water slide
Hear the pieces of her heart breaking from another mile
Back at the hospital
Monitor was beeping loud
Devastated told him that she loved him like a thousand times
Wiped his face with her tears & her voice choking
Peas in a pod through the years now that pod broken
It ain’t a damage unless it’s irreparable
It ain’t a loss until it’s irreplaceable
You were best and the brightest of all your own kind
Reverend Ozuruonye Lion of the whole tribe
Oh what a blessing to have ever found a role model
And that person just happen to be ma own father
This life is harder than you probably ever know
Some truth is harder for the teller than the told
I’m told you never question the Lord and that’s the code
They ain’t tell me that the lord can drop a pain up in your soul
Force you to deal with it and deal with it all alone
No answer to all these questions that welling up in my dome
Killing myself with blames over things I can’t control

No I can’t control the tears
And I can’t control the pain
So I’m looking on to you who has control of everything
See me now I am helpless as a child
With you now is the Lion of the Tribe
Lion of the Tribe

January 31st 2021
Our lives changed the moment I got that awful call
Should’ve seen your daughters screaming till their lungs sore
Your mother balling out her eyes on that cold floor
Her devastation’s only proportional to the love
Who would’ve thought that you’ll leave this world before she does
Consoling her is still the hardest thing I ever done
Cause nothing can replace the passing of her only son
I promise to never major on minor
I promise to refrain from things that’ll bring you dishonor
And from the day that I finally put a ring on her
I promise you I’ll always love her like you did momma
You took the time to tell us all the things you wanted from us
Stick together love each other like you did love us
I’ll make sure we stick together dad
We love and miss you so much

No I can’t control the tears
And I can’t control the pain
So I’m looking on to you who has control of everything
See me now I am helpless as a child
With you now is the Lion of the Tribe
