Shout outs 2 Kingdom Culture (www.facebook.com/kingdomcultureapparel). A song about what it means to stay fresh...

lyrics

1/2 speed intro chorus 0:00-0:17
If they try to tear me down? I'll build it right back up
If they try to push me out? I can take it, I won't budge
That's the kingdom state of mind (i - i)
That's the kingdom state of mind

Verse 1 0:17 - 0:51
You were labeled as an outcast, you heard that you would not last
And even if you finished, that you'd be dead last
You didn't dread that, you stayed on the path
Ignored all the ill talk, AND you stayed fresh
Never stale, never went bad
Took two steps forward, never went back, bent back
Your hat brim and stepped into the wind
Situation that was grim, but you turned it to a, grin
Cause they said you couldn't do this
You are, too young, too foolish, too stupid
But you never gave up, now they're lookin you up
Real soon, to catch up, they'll have to Google that
This is not a song, it's a dedication
To everybody who lives without a reservation
When they said you should wait you still went forward
You'll have everyone singing along with your chorus

Chorus 0:52-1:10
If they try to tear me down? I'll build it right back up
If they try to push me out? I can take it, I won't budge
That's the kingdom state of mind (i - i)
That's the kingdom state of mind

Verse 2 1:10
Others had a wishlist - you have a footprint
to leave and a thousand years of rain won't ever rinse it
You won't convince them to change their conditions
But that's OK: your path and theirs are just different
Is it instinct? Or conditioning?
Or were you given a gift that uplifted?
Either way, you didn't do what the others would
Not just a diffrent path, a whole other neighborhood
Stayed strong even when the naysayers
Came around and tried to make you mayday vacate it
But life is not a vacation
It takes a lot of strength just stayin calm in the crazy
So when I say stay fresh, I mean that
Not just a slogan that I repeat that
This is the lifestyle, fight for it, right now
Burnin with that fire even when they turn the LIGHTS out

Chorus x2

Spoken Outro
I see you in the dark, [and] you're glowing
And that flame, they'll never blow it out
You're a fire, you're a fire
Growin' brighter everyday - every day
