"Until The Lion Learns To Speak"


[Verse 1:]
Until the lion learns to speak
The tales of hunting will be weak
My poetry hales within the streets
My poetry fails to be discrete
It travels across the earth and seas
From Eritrea to the West Indies
It knows no boundaries
No cheats
It studied in parts of Greece
(Runtaa hadii kale waxaan lahaa aaheey)
I am sick as far as lyrics
Not with as far as gimmicks
I spit barrages no limit
The shit they talk I rip it
I'm hip the hop is living
I skip the obvious woman
Don't get what I am presenting
No rims my mind spinning
(Runtaa hadii kale waxaan lahaa aaheey)

[Verse 2:]
I was born and raised in a place
Where torn of flame would blaze
Where the foreigners not embraced
Where they warn you jog and pace
Where the loners lower they gaze
Where the corners slow at a chase
Where they twist and turn in the maze
With a pistol upon your face
(Runtaa hadii kale waxaan lahaa aaheey)
So come with me to my longs
The death and be overrun
With passion see how I come
No cash I'm free in the slums
The past can we overcome
I'm asking we be the ones
To actually be the ones
To free our people from guns
(Hadii kale waxaan lahaa aaheey)

[Verse 3:]
I was born and raised in a place
Where torn of flame would blaze
Where the foreigners not embraced
Where they warn you jog and pace
Where the loners lower they gaze
Where the corners slow at a chase
Where they twist and turn in the maze
With a pistol upon your face
(Runtaa hadii kale waxaan lahaa aaheey)
So come with me to my longs
The death and be overrun
With passion see how I come
No cash I'm free in the slums
The past can we overcome
I'm asking we be the ones
To actually be the ones
To free our people from guns
(Hadii kale waxaan lahaa aaheey)

[Verse 4:]
Until the lion learns to speak
The tales of hunting will be weak
My poetry hales with in the streets
My poetry fails to be discrete
It travels across the earth and seas
From Somalia to the West Indies
It knows no boundaries
No cheats
It studied in parts of Greece
(Hadii kale waxaan lahaa aheey)
Say I am sick as far as lyrics
Not with as far as gimmicks
I spit barrages no limit
The shit they talk I rip it
I'm hip the hop as living
I skip the obvious woman
Don't get what I am presenting
No rims my mind is spinning
(Runtaa hadii kale waxaan lahaa aaheey
