Lyrics:

Verse 1 (Mogli the Iceburg):

Another tragedy and we just seem so numb /
Need the peace humanity is dumb /
In the streets we see police, don’t freeze but run /
And the next thing that you know somebody reach for the gun? /
Then the murder gets reciprocated /
Man I swear that our culture discombobulated /
All these people pickin sides, I’m just tryin to circumnavigate it /
Got me thinkin, man the situation gettin complicated /
Let me tell you all the 90’s babies got the juice now /
Maybe we’re the generation that can understand /
That the content of the character’s the measure of a man /
If you got breath up in your lungs, then the future’s in your hands /
We dont stand for no put downs /
Let em know we still fam if you pale or brown /
We would like to welcome you into the tribe now /
Cause we ain’t with no movement that gon’ die down or lie down /

Hook:

This ain’t a flex but the tribe is up next/
We live in freedom cause /
We put our faith in the One that has cancelled our debts /
People might say we too young /
But that’s cause they see us as threats /
We hold the power and change gonna come /
As soon as we lock arms to connect /
What you waitin for?

Verse 2 (Jarry Manna):

I tried to chill, holy weapon’s here for the pride and guilt /
Slaps on the wrists, 12 tryin to kill /
Too many lives lost, I’ve cried for real /
I’m from a state where they never let it go /
Black Wall Street, that’s on everybody’s dome /
It’s not about the race, gotta focus on the hate /
It’s on everybody’s face but we never let it show /
So won’t you please take me back to the motherland /
As of lately I’ve been dreamin bout another land /
There’s a village in the leafs /
You won’t ever want to leave, if you do /
You gon’ still be my brother man /
So let me be the salt in your soul food /
Oh he made Vegeta? I like Goku /
And that is not a shot that’s the whole truth /
Givin you the real like whole foods /
Man I told you

Verse 3 (nobigdyl.):
What’s young a villain to do /
They tell me that my mellanin it make me a fool /
I need to keep arm ligaments and 10 and at 2 /
And maybe then my pigment will not convince him to shoot /
(wait a minute hold up)
What’s a young villain to do /
They tell me that I hate em cuz my uniform blue /
They won’t listen to my statements say I’m racist and rude /
Nobody loves death I’m afraid of it too /
I’m available too /
We could talk about it /
But the news gotta keep us at odds about it /
You know how every story on Fox go down /
Cuz they just wanna sell tix (Celtics) like Boston now /
Look he pulled me out the lost and found /
Then replaced a red dot with an awesome crown /
You know if our God’s about it /
We could take any sin and put chalk around it
