This is a message to the world
To each and every boy and girl
No matter your age there’s nothing to fear
Young or old, you have to be bold
I ain’t saying its fine to play mind games
Ones that give the world creepy bloodstains
All I sayin is that you can stand up with words
To make something great outta this round turd
People tell me I’m too pessimistic
While trying to be a kind of optimistic
I dunno its more realistic
If every bod is opportunistic
There was once a water filled glass
“What to do?” the people asked
Argue about the terms of containers
Or ask questions of even greater value?
“How’d the water get here?”
“Can we get some from over there?”
“Is there enough for everyone to share?”
Lose-win, Win-lose, lose-lose, win-win
Scenarios where answers come from within
But only in a win-win do all the people win win
Do ya’ll get what I’m saying tho?
Do ya’ll feel me? Do ya’ll feel me yo?
If we ever wanna have them safe streets
We’re gonna have to think about the people that we treat.
