"The Promise" as written by Brian D Casey, Brandon D Casey, Jermaine Mauldin Dupri, Bert Young, Gary Smith and Bryan Michael Paul Cox....
This is America, yeah it's true
Everything else is false that was taught to me and you
But I'll try to sort it out
I'll try to sort it out with you

Did you promise the world that you'd change it?
Sounds like the way that I feel
One brick thrown, one vote alone
Won't take back everything they steal
We'll take back everything they steal

This is America, yeah it's true
Everything else is false that was taught to me and you
But I'll try to sort it out
I'll try to sort it out

Shake it up, shake me til I awake from the coma
All the distance, distorted and lonely too
So out of the target
So out of the target I'm pushing you

Promise the world that you'd change it
Sounds like the way that I feel
One brick thrown, one vote alone
Won't take back everything they steal
Everything they steal

We're all walking forward
For every treaty broken
Annihilation tokens
For every treaty broken
We'll take back everything they steal

    General Commenti think this is about trying to change to someone(or America) but its not gonna take one person you need to do it wiht someone you can trust.
