Gang Related - A Change To Come (J.flexx F/ Tenkamenin, Bahamadia, Kool & The Gang, Con-funk-shun)

(Here we are in this day and age still loyal to the state of confusion. Why

is it only tragedy when harmony unites the people of this nation. We must

learn to break this cycle of hate and disrespect among our brothers and

sisters and we must stop asking the question: why? Start spreading the

message of one love)

[Verse 1: J.Flexx]

My heroes catchin 3 or 4 thru they corridor

They blast on em, hit the gas on em, last call

A bullet make a life shatter like a glass jaw

Look like the devil gettin just what he axe for when the gas draw

They wanna blame it on the gangs but it's a bigger picture

cos why we're steady dyin somebody gettin richer

Listen to what I'm spittin, who you think benefittin

while all these heads splittin they money-gettin

See the gangbangin ain't all about the red and blue

cos some many's corporations is gangstas too

They rub you out in a minute gettin greedier and greedier

Buyin out major labels and pimpin the media

Orchestratin beef between the west and east

Kill a superstar, blow up his next release

We got to put them straps down cos if you let them stay dead

Every death in black America is gang related



A change is gonna come to our lives (A change to come)

I'm not sayin it's wrong (A change to come)

We've reached a point and we have to decide (A change to come)

if we should go on (A change to come)

[Verse 2: Tenkamenin]

I'm fallin from the heavens screamin out "Lord please!

Let me go so I can check up on my younger seeds"

To show em right so they won't reach these penetentiaries

cos over the years that's what them folks want us to turn out to be, and

just release you

When I was young I wanted to be a thug

hang on the corner, smoke my weed and try to sell my drugs and show no love

In '97, all this had to change

So many murdered behind unnecessarily petty games, it's all a shame

Doin crimes as a past time

Tryin my best to stay alive is all that's on my mind

I hit my knees and drop my head between and ask the Lord

"Please let me make it thru this struggle" even though it's hard

Jealousy got us hatin it, wantin to kill each other though

What ever happened to the sayin that we are all bro's

Keep it up and best believe you, I will finally see it's gang related

So we best to let the killin cease, now rest in peace


[Verse 3: J.Flexx]

Tell me how many Haiti bottles I gotta empty

before I wise up and stop lettin the devil tempt me

Usin materialism to jealousy to pimp me

Live by the gun, die by the gun, to put it simply it's gettin shady

They got me mad like rabies, headed for Haiti's

Sellin they soul for a Mercedes and fly ladies

All this dirt being done ain't gang related

We got to take our former glory y'all, reinstate it

(People are in trouble in America. As a matter of fact, people are in

trouble throughout the Earth. We have returned into a force of death and

destruction on ourselves. We were never meant to be trapped in this

darkness, but there's always light in the midst of the darkness if you know

where to find it. Nothin is impossible. If you know who you were you

wouldn't wanna be anything but who you are. We have one change but one

cause and that's to frown one love)

[Chorus to fade]
