Sivion - Who Am I
(from the album Spring of the Songbird)
© copyright 2006, Hip Hop IS Music


CHORUS 1:
Who am I, a man with a positive plan
Who am I is a stand for the carpenterís land
I am who the same one that mingles with you
I pray this song will be the one that lingers with you
Cuz thereís more to this emcee that just hip hop
Thereís more to the streets than the cars that stop
You gotta pull back the layers to reveal the plot
You gotta look past the surface just to see what we got

FREDDIE BRUNO:
Maintain Freddie doing the dang thing
Insane rapís Coltrane the heads bang what we sang
Hard to move like a grape stain, Sivion songbird here to shake youíre A-frame
Who got lyrics to go like these?
And who got lyrics to show MCís
How to saddle up, ride a beat, taking on your whole fleet
Start beef and weíll serve it up on whole wheat
No sleep for the weary fury Judah fist
Pugilist with the linguist of a novelist
Obelisk 9 to 5 worker and a pacifist
Even wavelab and sound forge couldnít master this
Hereís piece of my heart, MCís got passion for the people like the minister grieves
Divinity breathes through me like the wind on the leaves
Thereís more than meets the eye, homie, hope itís what you receive

CHORUS 1

SIVION:
So just stop, itís my turn to rock the spot
Cuz Deepspace smuggle grace when weíre calling the shots
Bring this bounty to your block though weíve never been caught
We figured out your whole steez like connecting the dots
Thereís so much more to this emcee than just hip hop
It might shock the hard rocks just to know what we got
You can drop it in a box, itíll increase your stock price
Got mics, donít forget to check your clock twice
Thatís right Iím so precise though this life I lead will decrease, set me free to be Christ-like
Godís light can illuminate the dark night
Love conquers all after silly bar fights
You claim this butterflyís supposed to be a star, right
Gotta make some cheddar Ďfore you ever keep your car tight
Who am I, an open canvas in Godís sight
Hand this vessel to Christ before I rock mics

CHORUS 2:
Who am I, a man with a positive stand
Who am I is a stand for the carpenterís land
I am who the same one that mingles with you
I pray this song will be the one that lingers with you
Cuz thereís more to this emcee that just hip hop
Thereís more to the streets than the cars that stop
You gotta pull back the layers to reveal the plot
You gotta look past the surface just to see what we got

PLAYDOUGH:
Much more than Grammyís and cameos with A-Listers I stand below to sit up
And pay some attention to mention
Spirit gotta grow, mineís inching
Shine intervention, see past the wrong words
Itís Deepspace singing soul with the songbirds
Springtime in the meantime, see mine fertile
While I feed mine hurdles to the seed, I circle
With a blessing and a prayer cause the testing
Probably come quicker than Iím guessing
And this is just music begging that we use it right
So nigh life see the light when they choose to fight
Cuz rap words backwards are not the cure
But black birds sing freedom with the dawn for sure
So I use a microphone to microscope
And tied this rope together as I fly this hope
So who am I
