Change


Change that's what I see
we still living worse
thinking money is the be all
I know we have to use it
to pay our bills
people being abject
corrupted inside a world of abomination
using money to erase unhappiness and pain
young people we still can change.


We can change
change the way we talk
always cussing
change the way we eat
always eating unhealthy food
change the way we treat each other
no matter who's dark or light
change the way we look at money
use it to build and make big businesses
we must change.


Change is hard I know
but it's within you
everybody living in pain
but we still can change
I see hop
I see a change for the better
we all should come together and share a bond
as I breathe each and everyday
we can change in the now
making the world a better place.
