There’s more to life than you see
Your thinking what else can there be
Stuck in your own world, naive
To what your mind cannot conceive
Bring it girl at fourteen
Decides to kill her own baby
Kept it quiet, bet you never knew she lived right down the street

What will it take for you to?
Open your eyes and let you
See what is in front of you
See what you’re going to lose
It’s time for you to choose
How yourself will take the news
What will it take for you to?

Living now in the street
Forced into drums just to eat
Go with controversy
Black America is on its knees
See it on the t.v.
Its corporate river still it bleeds
So many victims
Still you don’t care till its you on your knees

What will it take for you to?
Open your eyes and let you
See what’s right in front of you
To see what you are going to lose
It’s time for you to choose
How yourself will take the news

Time counting down now
Count for mine
Crack a rhyme
From the world that just won’t hear now
Tell the families why they lost their
Sons, and daughters, and fathers
Losing hope in one another
Giving up on your own brothers
The killing dead America

What will it take for you to?
Open your eyes and let you
See what’s in front of you
To see that’s what you are going to lose
It’s time for you to choose
How yourself will take the news
What will it take for you to?
What will it take for you to?
The killing dead America
