Lyrics

"If I go into a studio and I find my truth of the moment - there are a number of people in the world that can relate to what I'm saying and that's gonna buy into what I'm doing.  Not because it's the new thing of the moment, but because it's my genuine emotions.  That's how I feel.  This is how I articulate the world."
- Sean 'Jay-Z' Carter

HOOK
Live hard truths, or get comfortable in lies/
most of us incapable of bridging comfortable divides/
you're a crazy person if you say Resource-Based Economy/
well... I ain't trying to be normal - it don't bother me/

VERSE
This isn't background music, it's a verse for the frontlines/
and I don't mean war, I'm talking lifting up minds/
the Hop never stops, barz for everyday the sun shines/
fathers - make sure your sons shine, don't keep them confined/
knowledge is the key, it necessitates movement/
families were torn apart, a President clueless/
I heard 3,000 kids had no parents to get 'em through it/
these pro-stars don't give a shit about your life/
all these sports rivalries just like little children fight/
we're passing on sick things to these future generations/
they say "Ponte las pilas." ... but who ain't elevating?/
government and big business selling poison to your families/
and y'all still support the Walton fam happily/
low-price for your pocket, huge planetary cost/
see, y'all don't wanna hear that but you're mad at me of course/
c'mon son... I'm 'bout to go Yoda - 'adults let's be'/
y'all still buying bottled water, even worse - it's Nestle/
well now they're probably wondering "Hold up.  What's wrong with Nestle?"/
ignorance is neVer bliss, it's ignorance - you get me?/
environmental disregard - that isn't too sexy/
fifty shades of brown, Flint-tap lyrical frenzy/
we all love to hear good news about our bad habits/
you're lookin' Elmer as Fudd tryin' to catch wabbits/
no matter how many punchlines I jam-pack in.../
...without participation, change - it can't happen/
Pac spit about "...the way we eat, ...live, ...and treat each other."
WE know WE need to change ourselves but we don't really want to/
live hard truths, or get comfortable in lies/
most of us incapable of bridging comfortable divides/
you're a crazy person if you say Resource-Based Economy/
well... I ain't trying to be normal - it don't bother me/
