lyrics

At the end of space
The beginning of time
Esika embandaka
Esika pe ekosuka

Bo koluka nzela ya bomengo
Kasi mosala bo kosalaka te
Basi baluka nzela ya libala
Kasi bolingo ba koyebaka te
Ba koloba makambo eleki eh
Boya makombo eyi minene

Run, run, run
Kima, Kima, Kima

Moninga soki olingi, kolemba te
Ya rien de pire que l'abandon
Soki pe ba pasi, kolela te
Ya rien de pire than giving up
Ata baboyi, ko lemba te
Ya rien de pire than giving up
Soki pe banguna baye, kokima te
Ya rien de pire than giving up
Mbala liboso mbala mibale mbala misato
Komita te

Run, run, run
Kima Kima Kima

I wake up with the plan, gripping bands, mind expand
Fly to foreign lands, getting cake with all my mans
What's the recipe, Chef a key, Mack a fee, Jackin’, trappin’ D
These facts are stated by the G, who made it gambling to believe my style is ice
Passion played precise, manage risk with rolling dice
Ideas pronounced, instincts flaunted
Cream separates clowns from who really on it
Slinging sonnets place you in the style gauntlet
Them setbacks reveal how bad you really want it
I'm there when the sparks fly
Riding golden dragons
Thinking lavish, steaming cabbage, dreaming savage
Never average, to the victor go the spoils
To the hustle loyal, if you want to kick it royal

Run, run, run
Kima Kima Kima

Run, run, run
Run
Lift yourself up
Give in to fate
See it through at any rate
Stay focused
Don’t procrastinate
Release, relax, elevate
Elevate
Don’t complicated
Embrace your fate
Refuse to turn away (x2)
Run

You got to go through to get to it
You can’t just show it
You must prove it

Run, run, run
Kima kima kima
