    The Reality
    And What is the Reality
    And What will it take
    To really make
    Us see what the Reality is
    We know we were captured
    Taken and put in chains
    But how in hell are we still captivated
    When not one physical chain remains
    We've got to get out of their lines
    And make some lines of our own
    If we need lines at all
    We can't just line up to fall
    Those lines infinitely go into space
    Takin' us way out da race
    We've got to bend 'em
    So we can send 'em
    Into righteous ciphers
    Enscribin' life for
    Our yet unborn babies
    Get away from guessin' and maybies
    Take control in
    Our destined role in
    Plannin' our future greatness
    Check out the lateness
    Of the hour
    Grab on to the power
    Don't fear or shake
    You won't make a mistake
    If you love yourself and work for progress
    Use your resources to correct this mess
    Don't wait for permission
    Or get mired in ommission
    Git to it now and don't stop
    Even when you reach the top
