lyrics

It’s like life keeps on going
even though it just stopped
for the faithful, my friends,
and black men on the block
shot at by the cops, hands up, they never dropped,
it never stops
we ain’t gonna solve this
through hip-hop
just bring attention, mention it, hoping in the end
the tension gets lighter,
that the light gets brighter,
that we learn to be fighters
for rights as well as what is right
but still lovers of one another
cause who here’s not my brother? On Earth, but one mother.
So why smother each other? Gotta let a brother breathe
we can do better than deceiving, bereaving, leaving others grieving
Let’s start believing
in society’s patches
working together …
to start weaving something, achieving something,
giving to the greater good, receiving something

You ever wondered what type
of legacy we’d leave ?
Or thought about how much greatness we’ve achieved ?
Even with faith
how can anyone believe
in you and in me
and in who we be?
You ever wondered what type of legacy we’d leave ?
Or thought about how much greatness we’ve achieved ?
Even with faith
how can anyone believe
That God still believe in us ?

What the hell
we doing fighting this war for?
Budget deficit
but keep paying for more.
We’re getting screwed,
still sore from the night before
told more lies than before
Nixon resigned or feeling fine,
see no problems, we’re blind
until we follow our whole soul instead of our minds

You ever wondered what type of legacy we’d leave ?
Or thought about how much greatness we’ve achieved ?
Even with faith
how can anyone believe
That God still believe in us ?
