lyrics

Verse 1:
This world, I'm tryna treat her like a girl
Always make her shine like diamonds and pearls
Never make her cry, like B.P. oil spills
Or force her to shave her bush, forestry don't kill
I know theres a few who feel how I feel
Seen that mother nature is the baby maker of sex appeal
Jungles in brazil, to islands unreal
I can't help but stare, cus damn it's all there
No words compare, no way to concur,
If you've gone for the search, tried to tackle the earth
Think this girls here to flirt, til you wrap round her curves
And come to find out, that her body's at its worst
All cus of these jerks, who put money first
Save a penny right now, don't care who they hurt
As the world suffers, they just run from the truth
Acting like some fucking kids, I did that shit in my youth....“ya'll should grow up”

Verse 2:
Man, this world kinda got me tripping
Last week I heard a story about some blatant racism
Kid named Trayvon died, white man pulled the trigger
Somehow he got off, white jurors, go figure
And I only know, if that happened in my city
I woulda packed my bags and got the fuck out quickly
Cus even though I spread peace an love like a hippie
Sadly for my skin, thats just not in my history
Go back to 43, zoot suit'as on the scene
Not starting trouble, just weren't giving nothing free
But those white servicemen, who look the same as me
Felt like they were kings, men picking on teens
Left a riot in these streets, thank god no one died
Sadly can't say the same for 1965
Losing 34 lives, over a D.U.I.
And racial injustice we'd see get worse in time


Verse 3:
Ah damn everybody's got there fix
Walking through this world, seems we all need a lift
Can I get a bit, can you give a hit of this
All I need is a sip, get me thru this current ditch
Like everywhere I turn, I can't escape this shit
Cigarettes filled with death, hard liquor by the fifth
And then your fridge is fulla energy for your kids
Guess thats just how this system wants us to live
Try to play it off so they prescribing it medically
Adderal, Ritalin, legal amphetamines
Gots me wondering who's the chef behind this recipe?
Making these teens think codeine is a necessity
No dissin weezy, we all need self relief
But I ain't tryna add another piece to this insanity
Why I home-grow trees, eat foods organically
And only leave my actions, not my trash in this masterpiece
