    What I've never understood
    Is don't people understand
    We are all like a plate of food

    You can separate your rice, vegetables, and meat
    But when it hits your stomach it gets mixed
    Like when we'll hit the ground at six feet deep

    I don't understand peoples "prefix"
    Cause 100 years from now we all be together poor or rich
    Money will do no good
    We are all like a plate of food

    You the **** wit all dem diamonds on your plate
    But we are creature of traits
    Controlled by a terminal fate
    So see you at the wake

    Make no mistake
    Life is only temporary
    Cremation or the cemetery
    Burn or bury
    The choice is yours

    As we race for the technological
    If effects the psychological
    It's almost mythological
    Hey we all will return to the particles
    That composed our composition
    And no I'm not tripping
    Just listen

    People need to stop harping on the petty
    Stop that bull till your dying breath
    Fix this mess

    And pray that the day will come
    That my brothaz and sistaz won't fight for crumbs

    Cause if a black is making 10 million
    The white man is making 10 billion

    So don't lose sight
    Of the fight

    So look at dem uppity bastards like fools
    Cause you know is the end
    We are all like a plate of food
