Risk It Nahko & Medicine for the People Song Lyrics

Risk It Lyrics
by Nahko & Medicine for the People

Every cell is transforming
And returning to original concepts to construct
And then I started to shape shift
And the animals within me grew tails and talons
I hitched a ride on the back of a whale
To the darkest of the ocean and ate of the bottom
And then I traveled dimensions
In the places I rode upon elephants and zebras

Elephants and zebras
Well I dream of my future big time, yeah
What it would be like to always have clean water
And if we left the trees standing
And they filtered the air and we breathed it in deeply
So I traveled across native America
I saw the sickness taking form in all it's small children
Well if I could give to my people, yeah
Well a piece of my peace will be with you always

If I could could give to my people, yeah
Well a piece of my peace will be with you always
Be with you always
Be with you always

I never thought I needed medicine
But I was spiritually dyin'
I needed some healin'
So I opened my mouth and took a dose of the music
Then I sat and prayed for guidance now teach me to use it
I pray for guidance now teach me to use it
I pray for guidance now give me the music

And it definitely matters how you look at it
And it definitely matters how you look at it
So if you think you can't risk it, well
What an opportunity to be free of it
Said if you think you can't risk it, well
What an opportunity to be free of it

I heard the herd, yeah, the wild horses
And we're blazin new trails to uncertain territory
I take a toke and reflect with coyote
And we're dreamin' up new ways to bring all the outcasts home
I take my place in the choir
And we're singin' new songs of freedom and progress
And we're deliverin' the babies, yeah
And we're birthing up the next seven generations
Said we're deliverin' the babies, yeah
And we're birthing up the next seven generations

Seven generations

I never thought I needed medicine
But I was spiritually dyin'
I needed some healin'
So I opened my mouth and took a dose of the music
Then I sat and prayed for guidance now teach me to use it
I pray for guidance now teach me to use it
I pray for guidance now give me the music

And it definitely matters how you look at it
And it definitely matters how you look at it
So if you think you can't risk it, well
What an opportunity to be free of it
Said if you think you can't risk it, well
What an opportunity to be free of it

Mouthing off
Such aggressive behavior
I'm sounding off
Holding my temper
It comes in waves
My enemies swim close to me
My heart's displaced
Connected to such bravery
My hunger waits
I cannot swallow
I cannot swallow
I am all over the place
My spirit bellows
My spirit bellows
I am on my way
My body follows
My body follows
Written on my face
Well do not follow
Do not follow me
