    Don't sit, we got to stand
    Cuz as the world turns
    -its gettin out of hand
    we're suppose to make a difference
    Livin in ignorance
    But can't live out the rules of agzistence
    I see you strugglin, but its only a matter of time
    B4 God takes the load off ur mind
    Don't give up, but put up with it, you'll do just fine

    Don't think its a penalty
    Cuz if that was the case, we'd be dead already
    The only thing we can do is rise with God mentally

    I see a lot of us fallin into a lot of pressure
    With constant complaints with a length of bad measure
    But this life we gotta treasure
    Cuz god chose us for some apparent reason, I'm not sure
    But whateva it is, we need to live this crazy world with pleasure

    I'm content just to see some of us rise a little, though its very little
    Many lifestyles we all portray, but what can i say
    This is all a problem and we're caught in the middle

    So stand up, cuz u can't walk if ur down.
