Joy denalane - Change
Overige artiesten: Lupe fiasco

There's so many things to say right now
I got so much on my mind
Look at what is going down
How much higher can we climb
The system that we're living in
Depends on poverty and greed
But people don't need charity
It's justice that we need

There's disrepair
It's surrounding you
And it's worse than it's ever been
We'll overcome
Overcome the things they do
We're halfway there
Cause we know the truth
But living is another thing
We'll overcome
Overcome the things they do
Lift your voice and sing

A change is coming our way
Step by step and day by day
We'll live by all that we say
Step by step now come what may

There's war all around the world
In the name of democracy
Can't tell the rouge from the just
When they bring hypocrisy
I see my sisters on the move
Making sure we all contend
Must've lost something on the way
We reduced ourselves again



Before we go forth
We gotta take 'em back, back
So we can know what we did
Cause if we never know what happened in de past
Then we can never know, that's what it is
If we don't do it for us
We gotta do it for our kids, kids
So they don't gotta relive
See, there's so much happening, it ain't gonna get fix
With singing and rapping and we gotta take action
And turn that preach into practising
Cause what happen back then, will be right back again
But each one teach one, cause we only as fast
As the last one straggling, so help 'em out

Step by step day by day
Said it won't be long, it won't be long
Step by step come what may
I feel it coming on strong
Step by step day by day
We gonna overcome
Step by step come what may
As long as we are one

Can't tell the rogue from the just
