What People Don't Realize

What people don't realize 

This world is too short for us to be wasting our time

Some of us out here fighting, stealing, and most of us loosing our lives

But what people don't realize 

The bad smoking out their lungs 

And the good dying young 

Mamas out here crying 

Because their love ones out here dying

 

What people don't realize 

We worry about people and what they got to say 

Instead of worrying about us making a change

We blame others for our own mistakes 

Instead of taking leadership and making the world a better place

 

What people don't realize 

There's too many young people just hanging around in these streets 

This world is at war and most of us can hardly see

We don't want violence we want the world at peace

Working together and being able to count on each other as a team

What People Don't Realize

 

What people don't realize 

This world is too short for us to be wasting our time

Some of us out here fighting, stealing, and most of us loosing our lives

But what people don't realize 

The bad smoking out their lungs 

And the good dying young 

Mamas out here crying 

Because their love ones out here dying

 

What people don't realize 

We worry about people and what they got to say 

Instead of worrying about us making a change

We blame others for our own mistakes 

Instead of taking leadership and making the world a better place

 

What people don't realize 

There's too many young people just hanging around in these streets 

This world is at war and most of us can hardly see

We don't want violence we want the world at peace

Working together and being able to count on each other as a team
