What do we really need
In this life
I look at myself sometimes
And it's not right

People out there with no
Food at night
And we say we care, but we don't
So we all lie

What if there's something
That you'll be paying
At the end of the life
Not the end of the day

And we end up in
All the shit that they're in
And roles are reversed
And it were different

And we were the ones
With nothing to eat
And we were the ones
With blood in our streets

We were the ones
With all the offspring
And they were the ones
Just watching on TV

We were the ones
Broke down and torn
With our life on our back
And our wife in our arms

And they were the ones
Like oh that's so sad
We were the ones
Like OH...

Nothing ever changes
The only thing I know
Nothing ever changes
Looking down this road
Nothing ever changes
Nothing ever changes

Look at your dreams
And your aspirations
How selfish it is
To need to mention

Turning a thousand zin
To millions
Marry a model
Have some children

Well they've got dreams too
I can imagine
What if it all comes back
To kill them

Sleeping at night
Without a murder
And somebody tells you
That's something they've never heard of

Now look at your nightmare
All of your worst fears
You're calling your house
And girl it stops there

All these things
We can't imagine loosing
Like oh no
What if it happens to me

Well what you've got
They've never had
To be like you
To have your chance
To be like you
Before they're gone

Nothing ever changes
At least that's how we act
Like nothing ever changes
Like god has got our backs
And nothing ever changes
I'm looking down this road
And all I see is pain, yes

Maybe we need more
Shoes on our feet
Maybe we need more
Cash and jewelry

Maybe we need more
Cars and TV's
Maybe we don't know
What we need

Maybe we need
To want to fix this
Maybe stop talking
Maybe start listening

Maybe we need
To look at this world
Less like a square
And more like a circle

Maybe just maybe
God's not unfair
Maybe were all his kids
And he's up there

Maybe he loves us
For all our races
Maybe he hates us
When were all so racist

Maybe he sees us
Down here so selfish
Takes this whole planet
And just tries to melt it

Maybe the meat
Will inherit the earth
'Cause it was written before

So everything changes
Nothing stays the same
And everything changes
And if you feel ashamed
Maybe you should change this
Before it gets too late
Maybe you should change this
We're standing at the gate
Maybe you should change this
Because everything changes
You should change this
Because everything changes
Everything changes
Everything changes

    General CommentDon't be selfish, and change the world by changing how you treat others because roles could be reversed and you could be in a less fortunate position by the next morning. Treat other how you want to be treated regardless of their situation and don't judge. Lyrics are pretty straight forward.

    Most excellent message. We should all be free to be ourselves without fear of judgement and recognize that everybody on this earth is going through their own struggle..
