Marcus Orelias – Fate lyrics

(Verse 1: Marcus Orelias)

A friend of mine ride flipped a few times
He’s fight for his life, I’m tryna loose mine
A landmine, maximum in expression
Misunderstood futurist falling into a depression
Alone right now, need a lone right now
Do anyone have a heart they can loan right now?
Mine sunk into my chest
As I reflect, each moment spent together as kids. It’s crazy
How life changes in a matter of seconds (seconds)
So focused on music ready to make it (make it)
His scull shattered in fragments, his brains shifts
Just when I thought rain shifts, it stood place
At the hospital from status updates
Years passed, I’m thinking what his parents would say
I’m thinking what his parents would say
In the room, I broke down looking at his face
Thinking “we can’t control fate” but to…
I’ll do whatever it takes

(Chorus: Stephen Marcellus)

Dreams while I’m awake
Even when dreams (dreams)
Seem far away
I know I’m gon’ do, whatever it takes
I know I’m gon’ do, whatever it takes
Whatever it takes

[Verse 2 Marcus Orelias)

Another friend, lost his Mom to homicide
He keeps his head up high, it’s hard keeping mine
I fear dying, I fear dying here
“Here” is where darkness ends but where light begins
And you can see it, I could see it for a long time
I was angry and secluded ’til walls tower high
High to know struggle doesn’t know time
Pinpointing parts when my soul died
It was comprehending “why”
I couldn’t comprehend my “why” at the time
I had no real friends, I always felt unloved
I had uncontrolled narratives and never felt good enough
My truth weighed tough, at times considered suicide
In a dark place art became my escape
So I pray for strength to endure tough days
Bound by fate and to understand
I’ll do whatever it takes

(Chorus: Stephen Marcellus)

Dreams while I’m awake
Even when dreams (dreams)
Seem far away
I know I’m gon’ do, whatever it takes
I know I’m gon’ do, whatever it takes
Whatever it takes

[Verse 3 Marcus Orelias)

My closing statement to the senate and the council is…
Youth need art this truth is, not hard to swallow
I see many artistic people wallow in sorrow off belief
They aren’t good enough to be
Give us a chance let us write our own histories
In a world conforming us instead of conforming for us
Kids ain’t dumb just bored of the same old junk
Formulated highlight text, define learning
Is it confined to enclosed spaces eight hours a day?
If it is I know why the caged bird sings
Singing songs coming from a negative space
Stand up, I challenge you to face your situation
No matter how difficult pain is, I relate
The struggle was clear when I heard a high power say
“This is your fate” get them there, do whatever it takes

(Chorus: Stephen Marcellus)

Dreams while I’m awake
Even when dreams (dreams)
Seem far away
I know I’m gon’ do, whatever it takes
I know I’m gon’ do, whatever it takes
Whatever it takes

[Outro]
