To your brother, to your sister, to your misses, to your mister.
To your friends, to your foes, give the love around and back around it goes.
It all comes from the top and it spreads right round  Treat a man wrong he's gonna pass it on down
To the next in line, who's probably his wife bringing up his kids
Now watchin' mamma cry
And they pick it up, cause they learn everything
Life has a funny way of going in a ring,
End up growing up in trouble with the law
 Standing in the cuffs that the father once wore
Now it seems that every brand new generation 
Have all been growing up with cracks in the foundation  Their trying to fill the holes of a whole damn nation 
That's lost its trust (that's lost its trust)
We gotta change before the train leaves the station 
And realize the revolution ain't a revelation it takes blood,sweat, tears, innovation 
It starts with us, it starts with us.

[Chorus]
Yeah, it starts by giving love to your brother,
 Giving love to your sister,
 Giving love to your misses,
Love to your mister  Giving love to your friends,
Love to your foes,
Give the love around and back around it goes 
Give the love around and back around it goes 
 Round it goes, round it goes,
 Round it goes goes goes

Give the love around and back around it goes
Oh we're all just folks working in a wheel  Spinning all around life's cruel battlefield
Draw circles in the sand on a rainy day,
 Watch it wash away
I bet it shows up on a sunny beach a thousand miles away
 Flutter from a butterfly forms a storm 
Over half a million people die
Oh we don't care because we're all desensitized 
We don't realize we're putting all this shit before our children's eyes
Now every brand new generation 
Have all been growing up with cracks in their foundation
We're tryna fill a holes of a whole damn nation 
That's lost it's trust (that lost it's trust)
We gotta change before the train leaves the station 
And realize the revolution ain't a revelation 
It takes blood, sweat, tears, innovation 
It starts with us, it starts with us.

[Chorus]

Give the love around and back around it goes (around it goes)
Give the love around and back around it goes (around it goes)
Love to your friends (around it goes)
To your foes (around it goes)
Give the love around, back around it goes
See the thing about Karma is she loves a bit of drama, yeah
 Loves to hunt you down and pay ya back for the things you did
 Before you turn a positive to a negative  Better pray before you know exactly who the fuck you're dealing with
This is not a dress rehearsal, let me tell you kid
 Whatever you put out there is coming back again  Years may burn (ohh)
 Tables gonna turn
Karma's coming back around  Either way you're gonna learn
To give love to your neighbor, love to yourself 
It don't matter bout your status 
Man your health is your wealth 
We can all point a finger but there's four pointing back at yourself 
I'll be the bigger man now
Give a little help

[Chorus]

Give the love around back around it goes 
 Around it goes (x2)
Give the love around back around it goes 
 Around it goes (x4)
Give the love around back around it goes
