The Fallen
Written & Produced by Xolisa

[Intro]

Woke up to this mornin’ feelin' something wasn’t right
tried to put my finger on it
but my heart it say, don’t fight
my spirit tell me to be still
but I’m feelin' darkness creep
I woke up to this mornin'
as you went to sleep

[Verse 1]

& as you went to sleep
we opened up our eyes
we watched your body hit the dirt
we watched your spirit rise
& as we tried to piece together what the fuck was goin’ on
i felt my lungs collapse
as i was told that you were-
gone were the days we said we’d rule this world
& get it side by side
spread the message to the masses yeah
& take em high
two homies from the block just tryna take a stand
bring the riches of the world back to the hood nigga
that was the plan
we said we’d pile that shit up on our backs & ride the way
you crazy muthafucka, we was s’pose to pave the days
& now I’m s’pose to excavate a grave?
I will not dig a whole for you to lay
this can’t be all
no
God you got the wrong one
he wasn’t supposed to fall
so bring em back, bring em back
it’s hard to hear
when the sound of fear it fills your cap
& when your mama’s tears they drown your lap
no — she hasn’t stopped screamin’
I wonder how long you was bleedin’ for…

[Pre-Hook]

so when you arrive up at heaven’s door
you tell them angels you was one of the best, to rock this core
when the people they be calling out for more
I’ll hold this bottle to the sky & pour
yes I will
you know I will
hold it high
& watch it spill
all over the ground you walked on
let it wash over the footprints that were left upon this world

[Hook]

(one time for the fallen)

bring em back
bring em back x3

it’s hard to hear when the sound of fear it fills your cap

bring em back
bring em back
yeah

[Verse 2]

& as you went to sleep
we opened up our eyes
for once we saw the reasons why we live the stories of our lives
so others can read the pages we’ve written on
leave a trail of the wisdom that we've embarked upon
& fucked up on, n on
you’ll forever be honoured by the dream
I will proceed
but after dark the taunt of death still breathes
whoever said you can’t see in the dark, was clearly wrong
'cause I’ll forever see your face upon these lids
when I bring em down at night
what a sight
no rest for the wicked &
no sleep for the grieving hearts
within my life, you truly played a part
held it down
from the start
saw my truth — ugh, this can't be all
no, God you got the wrong one he wasn’t supposed to fall
so bring em back, bring em back
it’s hard to hear
when the sound of fear it fills your cap
& when your mama’s tears they drown your lap
I said she hasn’t stopped screamin’
I wonder how long you was bleedin’ for…

[Pre-Hook]

so when you arrive up at heaven’s door
you tell them angels you was one of the best to rock this core
& when the people they be calling out for more
I’ll hold this bottle to the sky & pour
yes I will
you know I will
hold it high
& watch it spill
all over the ground you walked on
let it wash over your footprints that were left upon this world

[Hook]

(one time for the fallen)

bring em back
bring em back x3

it’s hard to hear when the sound of fear it fills your cap

bring em back
bring em back
yeah

[Ride Out]

one time for the fallen
one time for the fallen
(bring em back, bring em back) x3

& you will never be forgotten
no you will never be forgotten, no
yo one time for the fallen

[Outro]

woke up to this mornin’ feelin' something wasn’t right
tried to put my finger on it
but my heart it say, don’t fight
my spirit tell me to be still
but I’m feelin' darkness creep
I woke up to this mornin'
as you went to sleep
