Change to Come
(Here we are in this day and age still loyal to the state of confusion. Why is it only tragedy when harmony unites the people of this nation. We must learn to break this cycle of hate and disrespect among our brothers and sisters and we must stop asking the question: why? Start spreading the message of one love) [Verse 1: J.Flexx] My heroes catchin 3 or 4 through they corridor They blast on em, hit the gas on em, last call A bullet make a life shatter like a glass jaw Look like the devil gettin just what he axe for when the gas draw They want to blame it on the gangs but it's a bigger picture 'cause why we're steady dyin somebody gettin richer Listen to what I'm spittin, who you think benefittin while all these heads splittin they money-gettin See the gangbangin ain't all about the red and blue 'cause some many's corporations is gangstas too They rub you out in a minute gettin greedier and greedier Buyin out major labels and pimpin the media Orchestratin beef between the west and east Kill a superstar, blow up his next release We got to put them straps down 'cause if you let them stay dead Every death in black America is gang related Yeah [Chorus:] A change is gonna come to our lives (A change to come) I'm not sayin it's wrong (A change to come) We've reached a point and we have to decide (A change to come) if we should go on (A change to come) [Verse 2: Tenkamenin] I'm fallin from the heavens screamin out "Lord please! Let me go so I can check up on my younger seeds" To show em right so they won't reach these penetentiaries 'cause over the years that's what them folks want us to turn out to be, and just release you When I was young I wanted to be a thug hang on the corner, smoke my weed and try to sell my drugs and show no love In '97, all this had to change So many murdered behind unnecessarily petty games, it's all a shame Doin crimes as a past time Tryin my best to stay alive is all that's on my mind I hit my knees and drop my head between and ask the Lord "Please let me make it through this struggle" even though it's hard Jealousy got us hatin it, wantin to kill each other though What ever happened to the sayin that we are all bro's Keep it up and best believe you, I will finally see it's gang related So we best to let the killin cease, now rest in peace [Chorus] [Verse 3: J.Flexx] Tell me how many Haiti bottles I gotta empty before I wise up and stop lettin the devil tempt me Usin materialism to jealousy to pimp me Live by the gun, die by the gun, to put it simply it's gettin shady They got me mad like rabies, headed for Haiti's Sellin they soul for a Mercedes and fly ladies All this dirt being done ain't gang related We got to take our former glory why'all, reinstate it (People are in trouble in America. As a matter of fact, people are in trouble throughout the Earth. We have returned into a force of death and destruction on ourselves. We were never meant to be trapped in this darkness, but there's always light in the midst of the darkness if you know where to find it. Nothin is impossible. If you know who you were you wouldn't want to be anything but who you are. We have one change but one cause and that's to frown one love) [Chorus to fade]
