I look at the moon so full and so bright And then at the fireplace with it flickering light And realised why this world would never be right Then I through another lump on the fire We be, uh huh We be, hmm hmm We be Travelling down the highway of the enemy We be Joining the endless convoy of cultural hegemony We be Missing the forest for the trees 'cause We can't see the evils that men do on TV In the movies, overseas and right here on our streets We be Opting for vain glory over humility We need, we need to break the convoy line Get the hell off the highway Take the road less travelled 'Cause that moral fiber you thought was so tightly woven It's unravelling, it's unravelled I hate to tell y'all, it's unravelled Why do you insist on keeping us caged You know all that does intensified rage The world know this is the time And all power to the people Power to the people We be Say, I'm standing on my soapbox again Say, I'm one of those conscious artist Talking that "change the world" shit again Say, I might be just a bit too dramatic Slash overzealous about what I see As the human spirit's dive into uncertainty Say what you like, say what you like 'Cause I'll be all those things you say All night and all day Before I allow myself and soul To wither away into, indistinctness Live a half-life of blissfull ignorance Never take another chance, another chance Do the latest dance with the devil And lose my dreams for all we could be Lose my dreams for all we could be We be Why do you insist on keeping us caged You know all that does intensified rage The world know this is the time And all power to the people Power to the people We be Many, so many Many, like the number of death threats That now come used to get We be Many, oh so many Many, like the multitude of souls lost in the wars of men Over gold, over power, over die and hate We be Many, so so many Many, like the lies of pell the truth The coward lies of profits and power bungers Told to a cryer faith To steal land to oppressed people We be, the oppressed peoples We be We be Why can't we be More peaceful Why can't we be Nicer to one another Why can't we be We be What we were meant to be Love Why do you insist on keeping us caged You know all that does intensified rage The world know this is the time And all power to the people Power to the people We be We be, uh huh, hmm, hmm
