Hilltop Hoods – Hip Hop

Its been so long – Lyrics

It’s been so long we’re glad we came before
We gathered fame or had a name our story hasn’t changed with accolades
We’re still standing and we’ll be back again

It’s been so long
We’re glad we came before we gathered fame or had a name
Our story hasn’t changed with accolades
We’re still standing and we’ll be back again

Standing in line fifteen couldn’t wait couldn’t fathom any talent in rhyme
Had to get mine, granted in mind was my rapping that I thought would never happen in time
Odds stacked to reject us, attacking the hecklers, reckless with rap till they had to respect us
Laid tracks, never asked for jack for my efforts
Cause everything we do comes back to affect us
And as long as I got lungs I’m a say this
As long as we get love we got some that will hate us
We’ll never change it’s done for the faithless I don’t care for favourites on somebody’s play list
Aint enough paper for the names I gotta mention, without them no way I would of made it a profession
I wouldn’t trade it for a day of my obsession, we’re staying dedicated to perfection

It’s been so long we’re glad we came before we gathered fame or had a name
Our story hasn’t changed with accolades
We’re still standing and we’ll be back again

It’s been so long we’re glad we came before we gathered fame or had a name
Our story hasn’t changed with accolades
We’re still standing and we’ll be back again

(I’m still standing), fuck it
One of us had to, though I’m not standing still like a statue
Man, I can tighten loops like a lasso
You see my blood runs blue like a cut up a tattoo, it’s ironic
Some say it’s even confusing that I’m sill standing cos‘ I’m keeping it moving and I’m
Still champion we keep on improving and I’m
Main Source man, I’m breaking and moving atoms
What we spit is absurd, since a kid, I’ve always loved the rhythm of words
The beauty of language and spewing the anguish
All over the canvas like the riff was a curb
Now if you live by the word then you die the pen
The critics can criticise but we’re the crème dele crème
Me and P-Dela we blend what they’re calling the standard
Still standing while they’re screaming when will it end
It’s been so long, we’re glad we came before we gathered fame or had a name
Our story hasn’t changed with accolades
We’re still standing
And we’ll be back again

It’s been so long, we’re glad we came before
We gathered fame or had a name
Our story hasn’t changed with accolades
We’re still standing and we’ll be back again
The whole crowd’s like

How long you been here
(Ive been here for years)
How long you been here
(I’ve been here for years)
How long you been here
(I’ve been here for years)
How long you been here
(I’ve been here for years)

We still sharp, still craft Hip Hop that they played in the park
Still jamming, still paving the path
Still making our mark
Still aint for the faint of the heart, still standing, still state of the art

We still sharp, still craft Hip Hop that they played in the park
Still jamming, still paving the path
Still making our mark
Still aint for the faint of the heart, still standing still state of the art
