Promise Land

[Verse 1: Malik Yusef] Now whatcha finna hear is an update On what we been on as of late See I was reading a late notice on the date that I wrote this, you hear Time flies in the Leer And you wonder where the day went See I'm a leader in my field, but I'm behind on my truck payments So this is something that could help you raise your head like hello See this is not brown red or yellow Not a white or black poem This is a prayer to a guardian angel To protect our fathers. mothers, sisters, brothers, sons and daughters Until we bring our troops back home Cause it feel like we all in the same platoon And we'll all be extinct soon If we continue to suffer from other people's crimes I think we well overdo for change This time And I know they don't wanna see me cooped up in a Benz They'd rather see me cooped up in these pens Therefore I release the ink that's cooped up in these pens And let my art-ticulate People are so slow to love, but so quick to hate Now some things finna change because we say so Let's stop looking at how bad things are And focus on how well they may go And this is a declaration That we'll be fair again Especially to those Americans Who were Americans, before there were Americans This is to a small young family that's booming out of space There's room in outer space This is to my people The human race

[Hook: Adam Levine] I need you to Take us to the promise land Don't just make us promises It's too late to let go of our hand

[Bridge: Kanye West] They say we need a prophet that can touch on the topics And make it hot as the tropics. Well you got it (you got it)

[Hook: Adam Levine] Take us to the promise land Don't just make us promises It's too late to let go of our hand

[Verse 2: Kanye West] Everybody saying please don't let go I hear it over and over and over like a echo I see it in my dreams, I feel the effect though People drowning in debt Somebody to the rescue Everybody's saying we need something special Nah man, we need something extra terrestrial Outta this world, speak for us Be the vessel Outta the box, reach for it through the threshold Uh, through all of the stress though What's best of all, people screaming like a festival Just applaud, this moment is special y'all

[Outro: Adam Levine] I need you to And I need you to And I need you to I need you to I need you to
