Let's make change

August 9, 2016

With the world moving like the fastest wheel going downhill I was compelled to write this song to bring awareness to what's going on around us, no matter where we are in this 'now' generation.  The heart of man has put on weight. 

One of my favourite styles of music is educational hip hop that speaks from the heart.  Have a listen on my music/video page. ​

 

Here's the lyrics for my piece 'Let's make change'.

INTRO

Mmmmmm  hey hey o-o-oh

We got to make change

Mmmmmm

Start with you and me

Yea

Yea

 

CHORUS

Can you hold my hand my brother

Can we make peace my sister

We have to walk in unity

And help one another

 

Can you speak the truth politicians

Can we not be selfish leaders (yeah)

It’s time to act like humans and make a change

 

Can you hold my hand my brother

Can we make peace my sister

We have to walk in unity

And help one another

 

Can you speak the truth politicians

Can we not be selfish leaders (yeah I see it is what it is)

It’s time to act like humans and make a change (yeah uh)

 

VERSE 1

My heart bleeds with pain

Tears fallin’ like rain

It’s a dark cloud

I can’t explain

I see a little child

With no clothes on

No shoes on

No shelter

Walking the streets

And the mama died (yeah)

Brothers killing each other

Brainwashed minds

With smoke in their eyes

The rich robbin’ the poor

Like in transit

Taking a tour

The mean getting worse

Like it’s a game of chess

War has become a business

What nonsense

Blood money is the way to hustle

Hunger, jealousy, hate

The heart of man has put on weight

Society

Society is like a maze going round circles

The world system needs to change

No more shackles

We need to go back

To the creator

And ask for directions

That are better

The dark veil has to go

For the light needs to come in more

For this is everybody’s call

Let’s rise and not fall

The dark veil has to go

For the light needs to come in more

 

CHORUS

Can you hold my hand my brother

Can we make peace my sister

We have to walk in unity

And help one another

 

Can you speak the truth politicians

Can we not be selfish leaders (yeah)

It’s time to act like humans and make a change

 

VERSE 2

We have to climb this ladder

Let’s get past the grid

And push harder

We ought to love one another

From the father to the mother

Neighbor to the fellow worker

Smile now and not later

Love me now when I’m still here

Make the best of yesterday

And now come near

Let’s open our eyes and see

And put things back to how they been

The more we climb

The higher we go

The higher we go

The cooler it becomes

And peace returns

Let’s make this world a better place

Leaving it better for the next generation

New born, first leaders,

We have a responsibility

To oppress the oppression

Freedom fighters

Rise up with no fear

No condemnation

We are here for the nation

One love

One God

One humanity

We are here for the nation

One love

One God

One humanity

 

CHORUS

Can you hold my hand my brother

Can we make peace my sister

We have to walk in unity

And help one another

 

Can you speak the truth politicians

Can we not be selfish leaders

It’s time to act like humans and make a change

Let’s make change

 

OUTRO

Wooohoo – ooh oooh – yea
