Lyrics

No Circumstances

Written By: Stefano Nguma

Day to day I can't tell you how I feel
Sometimes I'm up, sometimes I'm down
All I know it's real down here
I and I surviving in a lion way
Livin' for the moment like I'm hunting every day
True in life there is no promise for the future
But things in life don't necessarily have to suit ya
There's a peace that transcends all understanding
But first you got to learn to be anxious about nothing.

Then we can be what we want to be
Then we can do what we want to do
Said you gotta seperate potential from your circumstances
Live big dreams to do bigger things
To limit the mind is to limit the means
Don't you know it's all in the mental
Not your circumstances.

Easier said than done, sweating in need since time begun
Some working and some sweating in the long hot sun
It's plain to see why some be running away
Running from their memories as their life seems to be slippin' away
Yoked to their situation, choke blur the vision
As they stumble in a hopeless mission
To bring back a piece, a very little piece
Of a pie that was to be shared at the very very least.

Yet we can be what we want to be
Only then we can do what we want to do
Said we gotta separate potential from your circumstances.
Live big dreams to do bigger things
To limit the mind is to limit the means
Don't you know it's all in the mental, not your circumstances.
