    Got the attention,some sending no message at all.
    Rappers getting caught in a new game,creating turmoil.
    In the position to turn some things around.
    Missing the big picture,covering no ground.
    Not realizing a certain power they hold.
    And the awareness which they can unfold.
    Notice they're already running out of things to say.
    With no beneficial thoughts their following becoming prey.
    Out of the streets into a castle,some lack the knowledge,refusing to change.
    So they act the part from which they came.
    Filling minds with material dreams.
    Rewarding listener to small pleasures,and ways to act out violence to the extreme.
    Sending some into unpredictable rage.
    Others blinding themselves,unaware of the hidden cage.
    Money making it hard to see the truth.
    Blinded by materialistic things,false achievement only penetrating you.
    It's best you get a clue.
    And take some responsibility for the things you say and do.
    More than ever you have a chance.
    To send out positive messages,putting confusion in a trance.
    The doors have opened,a sure way to communicate.
    But with prolonged hesitation,the doors will rotate.
    You can be the influence to be the provider of knowledge or the divider.
    Make a statement,adjust your atttitude.
    That you may be a rapper,but surely no fool.
    The choice is up to you,just don't let the income distract you from the outcome.
    Because if it does,what you create,you'll never out run.
