"Get Up, Stand Up"

Get up stand up, make a difference
one shout is louder than a thousand whispers
each breath bring death closer
what breath u got left make the most of
till your life is over
see the time, life don't pause that record
slow rewind, one time to hear that section
hear opinions, but you gotta rule in your kingdom
make choices that cause you to realise your vision
you don't show it, but you can do it, blood I know it
don't flow it but we still both thug poets
raise my momma, nuff cut offs, gas and electrics
certain birthdays and get shit, but it's cool mums
forget it, your love, the only reason that I ain't asleep
only reason that these pricks all be poppin' off clips
got families and friends that I’d lay down and die for
forces in my head, but in my heart I’m still for the life force

get up oh stand up
stand up and make a change
get up oh stand up now
get up and make a change woah

however you hurtin', situation worsens by lack of earners
system only workin' for certain persons
a man'll get caught tryn’a keep the rent up
but a paedophile 'll spend less time bent up
next time you pick up blood, think of the consequences
someone's daughter or son cracked out on park benches
can't do it i know, can't afford to have a soul
cuz if you thinkin' you slippin' and not on ya toes
genocide turned suicide, it's not coincidental
no chains, but it's worse when the shackles are mental,
scared to shine, self hate, breed like rabbits,
feed abusive habits, and the situations get drastic
kick in more, sure that it's soon to be you
we enterin’, it's hard to be strong
when the lifestyles so temptin', fat pockets
getting money, grabbin’ hoes away
but if we don't change today our kids grow the same way

get up oh stand up stand up
get up and fight
get up oh stand up now
don't just survive and live your life

however hard shit gets, try and maintain focus
cuz god always side with the most hate and the brokest
I know there’s a god cuz all the times I should of died
impossible circumstance, somehow I survived
plus there’s the fact that the universe is the same
blood circulates like we earth in the same time
stars and cells born and I erase so you can't count
body earth water solid exactly the same amount
are everything, it's so insignificant
earth not even cell sized compared to total existence
eighteen years ago, I weren't even visible
now I spit lyrical syllables through spiritual criminals
nothin' worse than potential that remained hidden
don't look back could of, would of, should of, to late I didn't
while most of us struggle to strive for what we believe in
imagine the strength of those who died for what they believe in

get up, oh stand up
stand up and make a change
get up oh stand up now
get up and make a change woah

get up oh stand up now
don't just survive
live your life, live your life
