[Sweet Sable] Living in this world What's happening? Living in this world What's happening? [Guru] What's happening... Check it out It's critical; the situation is pitiful Bear in mind you gotta find somethin' spiritual We never gain 'cause we blame it on the system You oughta listen, whether Muslim or Christian Or any other type religion or creed 'Cause what we need is less greed We can't continue to kill ourselves We gotta build and expand our wealth So one more time, I'll design a rhyme divine To educate and elevate your mind Nowadays we gotta fight to live Human means we got a right to live Without the homicide, without the genocide Don't tell me "let it slide." I'm feelin' ghettofied So be a soldier of truth Protect the lives of our youth [Sweet Sable] Living, in this world What's happening? Living, in this world What's happening? [Guru] What's happening... In the land of the free, home of the brave Too many of us reach such early graves They tell us to behave, but they don't know About the neighborhood drug flow They don't know about the drama, or about the guns I ask how many politicians steal our funds And how many officers will turn up corrupt The governments don't care; they pass the buck I'm growin' tired of the trickery And the misery; it's makin me kinda sick, you see But now I meditate, so I can get it straight My thoughts penetrate, so I control my fate So be advised by the wise and conscious one We take the easy way out, too often, son We better get some kind of work ethic Realize it, and correct it [Sweet Sable] Living, in this world What's happening? Living, in this world What's happening? [Guru] What's happening... From New York to L.A., dead children lay Victims of an unfair society But for those who are blessed We must correct this mess, or disappear into nothingness We're living in the age of doom How many teachers reach all the kids in the classroom? The beast is stalking us, but there's no stopping us As long as we maintain the strength within us 'Cause we're winners, descendants of the kings They try to hinder us from doin' our thing So get the money, but spend it wisely I get ill when the beats hypnotize me Realize that the key Is for each to master his own destiny Deal with reality, and keep a tight focus 'Cause there's a lot we got to cope with [Sweet Sable] Living, in this world What's happening? Living, in this world What's happening? Living, in this world What's happening? Living, in this world What's happening? Living, in this world What's happening? Living, in this world What's happening?
