Manifesto (Freestyle)

[Intro: Lupita Nyong’o]
When I look down at this golden statue may it remind me and every little child that no matter where you’re from your dreams are valid.

Cannon!

[Hook]
My manifesto for life is dream big, live large
I imagine the best and feel it deep in my heart
From the earth to the sky and everything in between
I feel the beauty of life ’cause I’m living my dreams
Spread love, get love, yo it ain’t to hard
Metaphysical thoughts, acknowledge the god

[Verse 1]
I traveled deep into my mind just to carve theses lines
It took me a couple a years but now I’m going for mine
Happy Pocket Full of Money ’cause I went for mine
12 Years A Slave – I call that corporate time
Grand slam out the gate, calloused hands from the grind
Fabrics cut and sown for the man in his prime
My names on the climb, deeply rooted in the rhyme
Pour out a little liquor for the jealousy and lies
There’s no love lost for those who didn’t believe
I kept my ego in check and now I’m living out my dreams
One time for your mind if you wanna believe
Every man has the tools if he wants to succeed
Two times for the money that you wanna achieve
Every woman has tools if she wants to succeed
Three times for the gift we call it everyday life
Stay connected to your dreams and avoid the hype
Reservations for my team, we never standing in line
Man made rules adjust to fit mine
Venture capital flow, REITs and IPO’s
Hedge fund money, P & L’s looking lovely
Grade A Honey for my Grade A Honey
My name rings bells in a hundred different countries
I’m the man of the year, the celebration feels lovely
My drive keeps me hungry, I’m enjoying my life
One Earth, one love is the message I write
One Earth, one love is the message I write

[Hook]
My manifesto for life is dream big, live large
I imagine the best and feel it deep in my heart
From the sun to the moon and everything in between
I feel the beauty of life ’cause I’m living my dreams
Spread love, get love, yo it ain’t to hard
Metaphysical thoughts, acknowledge the god

[Outro]
Interviewer: Is this all kind of head turning for you? Or does it feel like you just gotta go with the punches?
Lupita Nyong’o: It’s surreal. It’s surreal and then it’s exciting and then it’s overwhelming and then it’s intriguing…and then it’s um…hard work. You know?
