Lyrics

Verse 1
Open your eyes/tell me/what do you see/is the vision/yo/we envisioned of life/suppose to be/reality struck/a quarter to three/I woke up/living a life/unfamiliar to me/not apart of my dreams/though it seems I fell short/had to take/what was given to me/and change my course/but in the back of my mind/I really wondered/if this world would take me under/my mind/can only wonder/so I wonder/will we ever learn to love again/and if we ever find peace/in this world again/just some thoughts/in my mind/that gets deep/like a twelve year old kid in the streets/packing that heat/semi-automatic/ready to blast/dreams get smashed/such a lonely road/yo outside is real cold/better bundle up/cause these people will eat you up/like a lunch special/every mind seems disheveled

Hook 4x
We gotta have love, peace, and understand/living life/in this world full of greed/is too demanding/

Verse 2
I'm taking time/while I'm writing my lines/ayo/thoughts from my the mind/of a world defined/logic/rational thought/from the heart that sparks/emotion/things fall apart/separating/we're lost/I'm hoping/for better days/in a future that's fading away/no more blue skies/everything's turning to grey/when will you realize/they speaking true lies/ain't no fantasy island/vanilla skies/they say that hope dies young/that's why there's none/cause we killing hope/everyday the sun rise/a blessing in disguise/to see/our kids eye/the scope is elemental/like cobra's deadliest venom/they hypnotize us with green/plant nocturnal seeds/in the mind they sprout like weeds/to carry out vicious deeds/trust and believe/the seed/they call it greed/bring people down to their knees/believe

Hook 4x
We gotta have love, peace, and understand/living life/in this world full of greed/is too demanding/

Hook 4x
We gotta have love, peace, and understand/living life/in this world full of greed/is too demanding/

Verse 3
To understand/the understanding of peace/we must cease and cease fire/beef we must retire/I'm tired of seeing/all our blood in the street/fighting over an occupation/built to kill us with heat/for the love of the bread/made by the bakers hand/supply and demand/yo/controlled by the same hand/so who's the man/yo/the one they call ruler/the head corporate cats in the business/the Lex Luther's/our futures falling/like the Dow and Nasdaq/deprivation/yo/depletes a whole nation/smart minds/away's pass the test of time/cause they see the bottom line/take heed to every sign/yo walk with caution/knowing every profit has loss/every profit and good/yo peace within our hood/we gotta have/a new code in the streets/cause times is getting hard/everybody must eat

Hook 4x
We gotta have love, peace, and understand/living life/in this world full of greed/is too demanding/
