Education is spoiled by the rotting brains
Disseminating by the television cell membranes
As learning decreases
Society let's ignorant fame and material things sink in
Getting rich quick is more motivation
Than the motto of Knowledge is Power
Violence, drugs, sex, and riches
Turn young men & women to niggas & bitches
Today study hard ceased to Facebook & Loitering
Reading books and writing crumbled
To tweeting and "Please double tap me"
Cities that once thrived on unity
Are now dead and deceasing
Just because "He rep M.O.B"
Churches that were once full
Are now vacant
Now the night clubs a re consistently full
Music 'bout peace, love, and unity
Re-written into songs of things at night between you & me
-because everyone forgot the word "Privacy"
Didn't know sharks could walk on land
Know what I mean?
I thought a lady had elegance, and elegance
Not opened legs and always trash talking
And what about the characteristics of a gentleman?
Thought they did not sag and disrespect woman
So I looked to the generations to come
I asked them what they knew
Some answered some said none
I told them the truth
I let them know society gave up and they're waiting on you
But its up to them, they had to pick and choose
The girls could either be the best or plain and simple ratchet
And the guys could either be successful with a job
Or making license plates all their lives
I even showed and gave them examples
Told they could idolize stupidity
Or emulate successfulness
One little girl looked up to me
What am I to do?
Because am I really the future?
