lyrics

[Hook: Bekah]
Even though we don't get our love,
You know we're gonna do our thing,
And we're never, ever giving up,
So the music's never going away,
Plus the people can't get enough,
You know The Fam is finna set it again,
We breakin' every rule in this game,
Yeah, yeah

[Verse 1: Cee]
Uh yeah, Understudies, Movement Family, worldwide collab bitches
If you see me and I'm smilin', it's a grin that can't be smited by the elements,
Coz my life is enlightened by the mic and my brethren,
I'm a, dedicated young man, goddamnit,
With a hustle that's matching with my California compatriots,
Fuck a track, this a statement, I'm sayin',
If they ain't about us at home, we finna hit a plane kid,
The Movement Fam, bitch, and yeah we be smokin',
On pipes of the purple at Vlad's out in Oakland, gyeah,
It's on seethers, dog we next level,
Independent soul delegate, Barack with out the pig-a-ment,
Melbourne, Australia, you know it's me,
The kid Big Cee, words in the flesh, I'mma be Livin' Poetry, what

[Verse 2: Livin' Poetry]
When I roll with Cee, so deep up in this open sea,
Understudies and The Movement three, we make beats out of broken dreams,
Yup yup, if you don't believe, come see me bro and I'll show you steez,
P to the O to the E, we to the be to the floating free,
Pay to no attention to whether or not you were listening when I delivered the message,
It's better for me if you didn't, see, coz if you had you might get the impression,
I do care what you think and say, may one today but it's not today,
OK? But don't go away, there's more to explain on the roll I play like this,
Wanna fight with fists? Or give more to a violent his-,
-tory, why so much hate in a place of faith's a silent mystery,
Don't sit with me, I'm all love, East Bay folks hit the ganja club,
Arms up if you want our love, why? (coz it's inside me)

[Hook: Bekah]

Even though we don't get our love,
You know we're gonna do our thing,
And we're never, ever giving up,
So the music's never going away,
Plus the people can't get enough,
You know The Fam is finna set it again,
We breakin' every rule in this game,
Yeah, yeah

[Verse 3: Self Advocate]
What up fam?
We keeps it, we keeps it, we keeps it mooooving (2x)

Everything is everything and bumping's truly something,
Essentially it centers me and severs these assumptions,
That enter rings and questions wings instead foolishly fronting,
Adventures that I'm capping while enunciating wonder,
Straight trying to trap that draft at which I call upon my thunder,
But fail to cross the welcome mat I keeps on placing under,
The sorest at the poorest heels soaring to discover,
The way of a will working it's way up the hill,
CEE we LIVING by the NOTION that this POETRY'S devotion,
BEKAH set the emotion, COBBO the instro-duction,
Enlivened under the sun, where GodCast the sum,
CITIZEN and DEMZ ONE o' four point one

[Verse 4: Citizen]
One, two, three, verse four, ain't got time to be waitin',
Gotta slide down the block to the MacArthur station,
Huh, scoop the Movement, Cee & Bekah with Notion,
Show 'em we got intellects as well as dummies in Oakland,
What, sippin' Full Sails' LTD,
Bekah layin' down the hook, we across the hall cyphering,
Off the top, we do it, sink or swim,
It's the Studies Down Under, man reverse your brim,
Like, it ain't a party 'til we step in the door,
On the grind, all the time, man you know the repertoire,
Huh, up at the bar, I'll take a rum on the ropes,
And kick back, smoke a lil' somethin' somethin' with the folks

[Hook: Bekah]

Even though we don't get our love,
You know we're gonna do our thing,
And we're never, ever giving up,
So the music's never going away,
Plus the people can't get enough,
You know The Fam is finna set it again,
We breakin' every rule in this game,
Yeah, yeah

[Verse 5: Notion]

Uh, & still playin while most of y'all bench warming',
And Im overwhelmed when i open my eyes in the morning',
Coz we chillin, Oakland City, and peoples is fuckin wimme,
Movement Fam & Understudies formin much more than buddies, come on,
Hella fresh, we the best, in the flesh,
Better yet, brush my shoulders off like your President, uh-huh,
Yep its evident, pro-fesh when we rollin',
Not peaking', you're hearing' our mere minimum at the moment, hold up,
The blood, sweat & tears, runs everywhere,
Raw passion when we rappin' we relaxin every ear,
Profilac's never there, fuckin' those that still hatin' please,
My doggie Cobbo, got something for y'all fake emcees,

[Verse 6: Fly Cobb]

Yup, well yeah basically, flow no latency,
Ozone coastin', man most of these roaches hatin' me,
Most folks testin' the kid, and end up tasting me,
I stepped out back of California, my mates and me,
Yo, when Melbourne in this place get to swingin',
Well formed out rhymes go burst, Bekah singin',
To the weekend come, baby throw that shit in reverse,
Real lies submerged, the fact is you're used to the worst,
We'll groove 'til it works, Citizen, we push to be first,
And not a fuckin' one can tell us any different,
Like word up in this bitch, yo this here be my niche,
And it goes off the deep end where everything is twisted to bits,
Understudies and Fam bitch

[Hook: Bekah]

Even though we don't get our love,
You know we're gonna do our thing,
And we're never, ever giving up,
So the music's never going away,
Plus the people can't get enough,
You know The Fam is finna set it again,
We breakin' every rule in this game,
Yeah, yeah
