“so it be”

if we all get together we can all get paid

we can all get high we can all get laid

with just a little comp*ssion we can all just shine

no kids go hungry no child left behind

why every time a leader steps outta line

we find cut down early before he hits his prime

bob marley never saw 35

jfk and martian luther both lost their minds, literally

seriously read between the lines

lincoln got a hot bullet parked from behind

so stay on the grind, pick up on the sign

gotta let the devil know that i’m taken back what’s mine

now ain’t n*body here def dumb and blind

you we can see the clock is ticking we running out of time

these f*ggots ain’t listening, they afraid to die

so they lie, what, lie, what, lie, what, lie

let’s work it out

yeah can we get together

let’s work it out

come on lets get together

let’s work it out

yeah get yourself together

let’s work it out

you know we got to get together

so it be and so it is

so it be and so it is

so it be and so it is

black magic

as the day gets shorter and nights grow bigger

why on cops they always chasing a n*gg*

and why on fox they always selling us fear

twenty-four seven three six five a year

in the light of an *n*lytical political mind

hard line hard line after hard line

and like a runaway, runaway slave

with a taste of the freedom i don’t know how to behave

if we can all get together we can break these chains

run with harriet tubman on the underground train

like kunta kenai trying to save his name

like marcus starry i fear no man

now ain’t n*body here def dumb and blind

you we can see the clock is ticking we running out of time

we can hear the call we not afraid to die

so we get high so high we can kiss the sky

let’s work it out

yeah can we get together

let’s work it out

come on lets get together

let’s work it out

yeah get yourself together

let’s work it out

you know we got to get together

so it be and so it is

so it be and so it is

so it be and so it is

black magic

bring the m-16’s the tools of war

the blood that runs so red stains us all

cold steel turns so hot so fast

when the young soldiers switch off safety and blast

will they ever see the light again? i hope so

will they ever sleep at night again? i don’t know

will their mother ever see her son again?

they need to show that sh*t on abc or cnn

here we go again i’m-a enter this battle to win

i’m a show the devil exactly how this battle begins

with a spliff a couche some juice and gin

don’t sweat my technique let the zodiac spin

more money more problems right with my life

like with the rent twice they turned off the lights

now ain’t n*body here def dumb and blind

you we can see the clock is ticking we running out of time

let’s work it out

yeah can we get together

let’s work it out

come on lets get together

let’s work it out

yeah get yourself together

let’s work it out

you know we got to get together

so it be and so it is

so it be and so it is

so it be and so it is

so it be and so it is
