"Respect" as written by Salaam Remi and Quame Byron Riley....
The time has come
To see yourself
To realize
Your actions act for someone else
Now feel the ground
Inside your hands
It all is one
Include it all into yourself

YOU'LL BE ALRIGHT, YOU'LL BE ALRIGHT
YOU'LL BE BETTER TODAY
YOU'LL GET AWAY, YOU'LL GET AWAY
JUST AS LONG AS YOU STAY
You're feeding yourself all the lies that you already know

Reject the lie (THE LIE)
That power brings (IT BRINGS)
Its falsity
Don't live your life by majority
Make each choice (EACH CHOICE)
Ends to a mean (THE MEANS)
We might survive (SURVIVE)
If we can only learn to see

YOU'LL BE ALRIGHT, YOU'LL BE ALRIGHT
YOU'LL BE BETTER TODAY
YOU'LL GET AWAY, YOU'LL GET AWAY
JUST AS LONG AS YOU STAY
You're feeding yourself all the lies that you already know
Another dimension of life

Another dimension of life
There's a world around you
Not for you and no one else
So please respect it
And tell yourself
You'll be alright
You'll be alright
You'll be alright
You'll be alright

The time has come (HAS COME)
To see yourself (YOURSELF)
To realize
Your actions act for someone else
Now feel the ground (THE GROUND)
Inside your hands (YOUR HANDS)
It all is one (IS ONE)
Include it all into yourself

YOU'LL BE ALRIGHT, YOU'LL BE ALRIGHT
YOU'LL BE BETTER TODAY
YOU'LL GET AWAY, YOU'LL GET AWAY
JUST AS LONG AS YOU STAY
You're feeding yourself all the lies that you already know
