[Masta Ace]
I wish the president would stop lyin'
Black babies stop cryin'
And young brothers stop dyin'
I wish the police would stop killin'
Politicians a stop stealin' and actin like they not dealin'
When they know they got bricks in the street
At the country club fixin' to eat
I can see em' now
I wish we'd get this shit figured out
And stop goin' the trigger route
And actin' all niggered out
On the block with the nine cocked
I wish we'd try and stop, (what?) stop wishin' for the prime box
I wish she wasn't so obsessed with death
Tell me is it cuz we blessed with less?
I don't know really
I wish the world was safer, I'm scared to travel abroad
That's why, I travel with the Lord
I wish the cabs would stop for me in the rain
I know you wanna call me insane, I'm a dreamer.

Martin Luther King Jr. : I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice. I have a dream.

[Edo. G]
I wish my pops didn't die when I was seven years old
If there's life after death, is heaven this cold?
I wish I could wipe the tears of all the cryin' mothers
Wish new york niggas didn't start flyin' colors
I wish my people stop avoiding the truth,
BET stop poisoning youth
We need changes for teenagers as they go through phases
More than just a concrete jungle the world got green acres
I wish I'd been more diligent
Smart cats rhyme militant the rest rhyme ignorant
I wish the world didn't give us funny looks
Think we all just dummies and crooks
Athletes and entertainers singin' hooks
We need more black babies, that's in the books
I wish God could take away the pain
I know you wanna call me insane, I'm a dreamer.

[Edo. G]
I wish I didn't get searched when I come through customs
I wish Christians stop beefin' with Muslims
Wish the poor didn't have to take welfare
Wish America had universal healthcare
Cuz there aint' no help here, in a country where we don't fight fair
The American dream becomes a nightmare
It's all hype here, and on this track my soul I might bare
I wish Bush just get outta office
Before he start world war three and try to off us
It won't cost him, but it'll cost us
And right now, believe me you lost us.
