lyrics

LYRICS
Oh my goodness! shoulda seen this
the scenes that flow through my being be incredible
Oh what a genius Puzzled about life
They say believe in something though I trust in nothing
Stuck with the tragedies
And we focus on the positive
We just trying to live 2x

Biological weapons in the air in our food identical
Infatuation with murder
GPS track your phone every hour
Do planes disappear Into another dimension of time
Nothing really adds up
World gone cuckoo
Keep your head up show what you made of

chorus
Why do we treat each other with so much hatred
we were born naked
Yet we quick to cover how we truly feel inside

Rise to the occasion
Be the change you wanna see
Spread love, lets live in harmony

Living broke with shitty chores
got caught yet I didn't rob
yeah we were meant to be special
where heaven went, don't know
brother gotta have some hope
cos brighter days go go come my way
Child of Fate somebody put a smile on my face
said it gone be alright
we go walk out them trials
cos you too good when they say that you not
you too good when they say that you not
you should prove em wrong, no doubt

chorus
Why do we treat each other with so much hatred
we were born naked
Yet we quick to cover how we truly feel inside

Rise to the occasion
Be the change you wanna see
Spread love, lets live in harmony

Bridge
I'm tired of blaming the next man bout my problems
if I want problems I just go dey find am
Ridee I try to solve dem 2x

chorus
Why do we treat each other with so much hatred
we were born naked
Yet we quick to cover how we truly feel inside

Rise to the occasion
Be the change you wanna see
Spread love, lets live in harmony
