Guru

Guru (Devanagari गुरु) is a Sanskrit term for "teacher" or "master", especially in Indian religions. The Hindu guru-shishya tradition is the oral tradition or religious doctrine transmitted from teacher to student. In the United States, the meaning of "guru" has been used to cover anyone who acquires followers, especially by exploiting their naiveté, due to the inflationary use of the term in new religious movements. more »

[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?
