WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT THE HATE

 

 

NO NEED TO HESITATE, INTEGRATE, SEGREGATE OR DETONATE

IT’S NOT TOO LATE TO SAVE OUR FATE AND SEE THAT WE DON’T DISINTEGRATE

SO WATCH YOUR RHYME AND CHECK THE DATE

I GUESS THAT I MEAN TO IMPLICATE

WE’RE RUNNIN’ OUT OF TIME IT SEEMS WE CAN NO LONGER WAIT

 

WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT THE HATE

 

WILL WE BE IN COMFORT OR CALAMITY

A MISINFORMED HUMANITY

BLEEDS FROM EVERY DISTANT SHORE

YOU CAN’T IGNORE OUR NEEDS

FLOATING IN AND OUT OF VIEW

SEA TO SEA YOU AND ME

WHAT WE GOING TO DO WITH YOU AND I

 

WHAT’S THE REASON WHY WE RIOT IN OUR MIND

AND FEEL THE NEED TO DEFY IT

MAKE THE NUMBERS COUNT TAKE A FULL ACCOUNT

OF WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT

CLEAR THE AIR REMOVE ALL DOUBT

AND THEN GET OUT FROM  BEHIND IT

 

WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT THE HATE

VIOLENCE IS OVERRATED

THE PAIN IS UNDERSTATED

SO BEFORE WE’RE VIRTUALLY ELIMINATED

WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO

 

WHAT WE NEED IS A SMOOTH REVOLUTION

TO RESPOND TO THE EMERGENCY

AT THIS STAGE OF EVOLUTION

WE NEED TO A

NSWER WITH ALL URGENCY

MONKEY SEE MONKEY DO

IT’S A WAY OF LIFE IT’S TRUE

A SUCKER’S BORN EVERY SEASON

GIVE ME ONE MORE GOOD REASON WHY

 

WE’VE BEEN RUNNIN’ OUT OF PATIENCE

SINCE ANCIENT TIMES

MANNING OUR STATIONS

WHILE CLOSING OUR MINDS

WE NEED FOR EACH ONE TO TEACH ONE

SO MAN AND WOMAN CAN AMAZE

THERE WAS NEVER SUCH A THING

AS THE GOOD OLD DAYS

 

CHORUS

 

TAKE A MESSAGE TO THE MEDIA

YOU DON’T LIKE WHAT THEY’VE BEEN FEEDIN’ YA

NETWORK SWEEPS MAKE ME WANNA WEEP

INTEGRITY IS OUT MAKES ME WANNA SCREAM AND SHOUT

FILLED WITH DOUBT ALL WE’RE LEFT WITH IS EFFING BLEEP

WE’RE ALL GONNA HAFTA QUIT GET OFF OF IT

DON’T BE SOFT ON IT

WE ALL SUFFER THE COST

JUDGING PEOPLE BY THE RACIAL CLUE

SHOULD BE MADE TO BE TABOO

WE ALL NEED TO MOVE TO A HIGHER POINT OF VIEW

 

IT ALL COMES DOWN TO THE RESPECT OF ANOTHER

WHAT WE KNOW NOW AS EXISTENCE

DEPENDS ON OUR VERY OWN INSISTENCE

‘CAUSE ANYTHING ELSE LESS IN THE END

WE CANNOT DEFEND

AND COULD TURN OUT TO BE QUITE APOCALYPTIC

 

YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE JUST ANOTHER STATISTIC

IT COULD BE YOU WHO COULD MAKE THE DIFFERENCE

 

WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT THE...

WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT THE HATE

NOW THAT IT’S DOWN TO ME AND YOU...

WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO

 

YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE JUST ANOTHER STATISTIC

 

 

 

CHORUS

 

HERE WE GO - WILL THE DIRECTION BE HIGH OR LOW?

THEY SAY THAT IT’S A RACE BETWEEN AN

EDUCATE AND ANNIHILATE

PEOPLE SPECULATE

AS THE BODIES COMPILATE

‘CAUSE WE DON’T HESITATE

TO DENIGRATE

OR VIOLATE

AS THE FRUSTRATION BOTH ENSLAVES US

AND EMANCIPATES

 

WELL THE ANSWER’S NOT TO ASSIMULATE OR DIFFERENTIATE

WE ALL IMITATE

ALLOW ME TO INDICATE

IT’S A SHOUT OUT TO Y’ALL - ‘YO WORLD IT’S FOR YOU

THIS SONG THAT I DEDICATE

THE REASON THAT I PONTIFICATE

IS TO SEE THAT WE DON’T SEAL OUR FATE

 

WE OUGHT TO SAVE OUR FATE

JUMP AT THE CHANCE TO GET IT STRAIGHT

DON’T JUST WALK AWAY

WE MUSN’T END THE DEBATE

‘TIL WE REMEDIATE

GIVE AND TAKE TO OUR FACE

ELEVATE,NEGOTIATE FOR HEAVEN’S SAKE

DON’T JUST BLAME THE STATE

AT ANY RATE, BY THE WAY

WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT THE HATE?

 

YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE JUST ANOTHER STATISTIC

IT COULD BE YOU WHO COULD MAKE THE DIFFERENCE

 

WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT THE...

WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT THE HATE

NOW THAT IT’S DOWN TO ME AND YOU...

WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO

 

YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE JUST ANOTHER STATISTIC
