[Spoken Intro – Nelson Mandela]
I am privileged to be here today at the invitation of the campaign to make poverty history.

[Verse 1 – Tedical]
I know I’m broke but I got a penny for your thought,
Is complicated is like my whole life has been explored,
By the two faced demons that I had to ignore,
Everything that I touch crumbles when I stand I fall.
Is me against the world is me against time and everyone who got
a lot of it, I feel like giving up,
I feel the world on my shoulder, I feel my wrath and is colder,
I’m breathing life on a clover, deteriorating I’m over.
I know the pain of being unemployed I know the strain,
I know the shame, they say you ain’t a man enough till you get the coin.
You feel the paranoia penetrating, you suicidal.
You got dead hopes and positivity aloof,
You and death is like the difference between a fact and the truth,
I wanna be 45, single and childish.
What’s the point of being in prison when you outta prison? Shii,
See I been betrayed that I’m even scared to be close to Jesus,
I got trust issues, when I cry I don’t trust tissues.
I hate questions like a fake pastor,
You hate on me cause I’m straight past ya.
Gimme the mic and I’ll touch your soul with these rhymes.
Incredible minds in a single being just to make your pain eight extra,
I rap the truth and it ain’t a lecture,
I know your home affairs and I’ll prolyl jot em down with a pen and inspire the world.

[Spoken Bridge – Nelson Mandela]
The very right to be human is denied every day to hundreds of millions of people
as a result of poverty and the unavailability of basic necessities.

[Chorus – Tedical]
Black butterfly (pru pru pru pru), Black butterfly (pru pru pru pru),
Black butterfly (pru pru pru pru), Black butterfly I’m a black butterfly.
Black butterfly (pru pru pru pru), Black butterfly (pru pru pru pru),
Black butterfly (pru pru pru pru), Black butterfly I’m a black butterfly.
Black butterfly.

[Verse 2 – Tedical]
I rap for the kids in the streets who got nothing to eat,
I rap for the priest on his knees who got nothing to preach,
I rap for the girls who do nothing for money but strip,
I rap for the models who sleep with their judges to win.
I rap for the wicked, I rap for the cursed and the bleak,
I rap for the weak and I rap for the blessed and the meek,
They said what I rap will never play on the radio
Cause they don’t know the name of my city but now they gotta know.
Yeah, a blessing is not a car, a blessing is not a job,
A blessing is no quap, a blessing is not a brand new crib or a new wife,
A blessing is not a material presentation of nothing.
A blessing is a spoken word into your life with the master key to
open all the doors you desire.
I’m from a world of jealousy, hatred black to black they only love you when
you gone dead.
Destiny awaits don’t be late getting laid,
Some people gonna hate and you gotta tolerate
their negative energy cause they aiming at your faith
and if you let em take a shot then you proly gonna fade.
I’m not gonna listen when you tell me that my dreams are impossible to reach and it seems like
I’m not gonna listen when you tell me I ain’t gonna make it because of the colour of my skin, right.

[Chorus – Tedical ]
Black butterfly (pru pru pru pru), Black butterfly (pru pru pru pru),
Black butterfly (pru pru pru pru), Black butterfly I’m a black butterfly.
Black butterfly (pru pru pru pru), Black butterfly (pru pru pru pru),
Black butterfly (pru pru pru pru), Black butterfly I’m a black butterfly.
Black butterfly.

[Spoken outro – Nelson Mandela]
I will continue to entertain the hope that has merged the cater of leaders in my own country and region, on my continent and in the world
