    half the people dpwn here dont wanna make a difference
    they stand from a distance not showin their existence
    people sellin drugs, people takin drugs, deciet, trickery- its all apart of business
    its not hard if u try, it only takes resistence
    half the people down here complain about it
    never make suggestions, only doubt it
    money takes control and if power is our only role than we're ruined
    it happens, i accept it, we aint tryna help, i know im young but im not stupid

    half the people down here fail to see
    they aren't blind, they just refuse to see
    we walk these streets with our eyes closed, hands folded
    gotta make a change soon, life dont last foreva, rememba- our destiny is beholded
    half the people down here gave up on these diseases
    dont give up,there's a cure somewhere, everything has a weakness
    sex sells and if we cant control our desires w/o protection than we're ruined
    it happens, i accept it. we aint tryna help
    i know im young but im not stupid

    most people talk about their religion
    whether it be muslim, budism, or christian
    criticize every one when u urself dont know discipline
    we're only human, tell me one person who can live w/o sinnin
    makin rules, predictin other's destiny just cuz they dont always go to church
    let the lord judge us as long as we walk this earth

    if we dont try to help each other than face it we're ruined
    i know im young, but im not stupid.

    this take place cross da globe
    many blind to take hold
    only our handz reach out
    yet so many can't see
    what is wrong thee
    ova taken by the game
    life today just not the same
    we offer and give a prayer
    to help the blind see
    it a daily thing of me .............

    speak the truth forth it don't hurt
    just wake many up with reality pain
    keep flowin'

    I may be young but I'm not stupid
    I may be strong but I'm not timid
    He may be wasteful but it's all intrepid
    She may be tasteful but it's all insipid
    Young, strong, and erected
    Cool, calm, and collected
    The journey of a man respected...
