lyrics

verse 1

try to say that it was better
but i think i always knew it not be
early morning class cover the heart praise flag
youth tainted
by option of the optical
reducing my approach to an unstable domino
topple over
helping to better fall in line
the good times
before cell phones could spot crime
when i couldn’t walk a block without fitting the description
friends lost
due to cost of our surroundings
no one to show the way out
and funds never stay stout
chose the lame route
fast food to gain clout
covered in greasy from head to toe and felt so despicable
making less than minimum on a job that leads me nowhere
no cares left
a silent breath seeks more
but how do i get up when i can only see floor
want to explore but ignored in the vast allure
memory searching
down to it’s very core

hook

when i was thinking back in the day
i’m glad it isn’t how it use to be
expose the nonsense
and unify through united
u - n - i - t - y
that's a true brief
let's make it happen for the youth to see

verse 2

seen it in a different light
and the plight to move along was a choice made to fight by night i was a traveler
using my surrounding to better shape the future
walk without a purpose
till the sun chose to surface
schooling made me nervous as i’m bullied down the hall
before the yes yah i guess i had to take a fall
use my legs to walk
yet i’m back to learning crawl
the memories are viscous but now i’m standing tall


hook

when i was thinking back in the day
i’m glad it isn’t how it use to be
expose the nonsense
and unify through united
u - n - i - t - y
that's a true brief
let's make it happen for the youth to se
