Let me spit some...
God knows we need new fresh wisdom
From the blind of the ego we need some
Clarity to see the bright shining of the Sun
Know what I say...
When the best of us get led astray
How do we expect to grow at all this way
Dunno why we hold our noses high
When all we got was a clap not a Grammy
Where's the heart
Would somebody tell me?

What happened to the days when love for music was all that was played
And the pride and joy
Simply came from expressing your soul
Way more precious than silver or gold
Can somebody tell me what went wrong
Did society glorify the wrong damn song
And leave us with the mess we have?
I think it’s time to stand up and face the music
Cos this is how we should do it

I don't care what you say cos
I'm gonna keep this art (pure)
I don't care what you say cos
I'm gonna keep my art pure

How did it feel my friend?
When you stopped keepin’ it real my friend
Did it feel good?
Does it still
When the vanity's taking over all that will?
To keep it true
And stop hustling me and you
For extra mention
Did really need all that attention?
God knows you got plenty more to give

But it could happen to me as much as you
if like you I fall into the brew
Of insecurity that's constantly bugging me
Stealing me from clarity, killing creativity
Did you forget how you began
When off to that glory all of you ran?
When did that soul so pure leave you wanting more
When all you had to do was keep your damn art pure?!
