Divo & GMJ – Soldier

1st Verse

Time reveals the truth but only some understand it
Reach a higher plane, the rest get left stranded
Hoping they’ll be saved by their faith in God
Faith in fate or good luck to face the odds
The race is hard like Po trying to chase your squad
Half the faces around me be fakes and frauds
Only around feeding off of my strength and shine
If I didn’t hustle with graphic things and rhyme
They’d stop calling, appalling, nope I’m not falling
You’re looking at a made man, made plans to haul in
The big stacks of cheddar, back with better than ever
Tracks to settle vendettas, cats could never forget it
Rats forever regret it, stepping on my toes
You couldn’t walk a mile inside my sapatos
Most of these vatos they ain’t mind friends
Never there when I need them so I can’t pretend

Chorus

Hey soldier when it’s time to ride
Will you fold under pressure or be by my side
Hey soldier we can split the dough,
Why you really want to stick me for? Huh!
I held it down for you, you wasn’t down for me
So now I see you clowns is weak
Keep your friends close and your enemies even closer
Nowadays they don’t do what they’re supposed to

2nd Verse

Think about yours homie don’t it sound familiar
Cuz you feel what I’m telling you is bound to fill ya
With the questions and answers that ya’ll should ask
Like my suggestion that cancer was spawned in glass
Test tubes, the best dudes we care about good fades
Never gave a damn about a job with good pay
I guess we’re all hood slaves wherever we go
Cuz it’s always inside us and never lets go
And it’s sad cuz I don’t chill with those that I grew with
They’re too slick for those reasons I ain’t cool with them
But they don’t know it, cuz I don’t show it
Keep my enemies close so I don’t blow
Cuz the industry is about showing face
And I’m tired of this beef shit, some don’t know their place
Still, you never know when you might need a favour
So don’t burn your bridges and be a good neighbour

Chorus

Hey soldier when it’s time to ride
Will you fold under pressure or be by my side
Hey soldier we can split the dough,
Why you really want to stick me for? Huh!
I held it down for you, you wasn’t down for me
So now I see you clowns is weak
Keep your friends close and your enemies even closer
Nowadays they don’t do what they’re supposed to
