  • Lyrics: Look me in the eye when I’m talking to you Stare me in my soul, don’t just look right through. Don’t just respond with a phrase that’s contrived We gotta touch one another so we still feel alive Too much ignorance with privilege Dumbing down a sacrilege Undereducated Fear that leads to hatred Dignity, what’s that? We got war and combat Telling lies, in disguise, no one tries You got to step up, my brother, You got to step up, my sister, too You got to step up, now people Respect is all you need, if you want to see the world improve You got to give me some respect if you want it back Think before you move don’t just shoot to attack. Open up your heart so we connect man to man Stop living your life just to pull off a scam It’s a quick fix with clichés Disposable, road rage Money hungry, Nations bleed Ghetto speak, high speed Hard work, what’s that? Pompous, pious, selfish brat If we exceed too much greed, we will recede We can have a better life if we reunite Peace, love & laughter should replace the fight Remember a time when there was no fear Now too many mothers are shedding a tear We got to step up, find peace Elevate and release Learn to acknowledge Instead of battle, college Conflict. What’s that? Let’s lay down a welcome mat We can raise glory days in many ways
