lyrics

i was down and needed you so
inspired me to control
in spite of what folks had said
inspired me to control
past constraints had left me cold
inspired me to control
in spite of what folks had said
inspired me to control


hey… i see them from the bold
to the wise now
keeping the source of love
around live
help me pass on spirits alike now

you've inspired me
to be like you
you’re trying to teach me to be me

good friends talk!
when the war goes down we talk
distort the locomotion
find a process
to be honed in
recover from lust
vengeance wishes
there is no bad
from the freshest to the old school greats you all got me
running i'm running no need to be siding we all got this

Marley, Marvin, Wonder, Stones
inspired me to control
keep me pushing for my craft
inspired me to control
conscious music is where it's at
inspired me to control
satisfied with what i have
inspired me to control

you've inspired me
to be like you
you’re trying to teach me to be me

oh you, inspired me
to create
to be… oh

Marley, Marvin, Wonder, Stones, Simone, Lennon, Hathaway, Michael Jackson, Robinson, Sam Cooke, Otis Redding… yeah!

la, la, la, la, la..

inspired me to create
pioneering soul before me
dancing, rhyming
dedication to all the greats!
