    Get Off !!

    The people have gone to sleep.
    They are wandering around like lost sheep.
    It seems wools have been pulled over their eyes.
    All you hear is their wailin’ cries.

    The blind leading the blind.
    Or do they just control the people’s mind.
    Why do you keep on living the life you are living?
    Just taking all the **** they are giving.

    We have children that’s really off track.
    And it’s because, the before generation is completely wack.
    Slavery was no better then than it is now.
    Only now you don’t have to bow.

    They fought for a basic human rights back then and the right to be free.
    Now all we do is killing, each other. Next time it will be you. Or Me?
    In Church every Sunday we sing the same song. “We shall overcome.”
    How long can this keep going on?

    The children have no respect.
    Why don’t you know the reason yet?
    They have witnessed all your evil feelings and dirty dealings.
    Now all they are doing is a thrilling and a killing.

    You made this mess!
    Now you know what happened. You don’t have to guess.
    You plant what you want to grow.
    And what you planted has begun to show.

    Get off your *** and your mind will follow.
    If you don’t, the children’s mind will be hollow.
    Now you so-called Fathers and Mothers know what to do.
    Stand up for your Rights and your Children will follow you.

    You can be that goat that lead them to the slaughter.
    You are responsible for the future of your sons and daughters.
    You must make the right sacrifice.
    To save you son or daughter life.

    Get up off your *** and your mind will follow.
    That’s all you got to do my friend. That’s all you gotta do.
    Please get real and make the right decision.
    Or our children will perish in the valley of division.
