    Lyrics

    Yo, just feeling the way that I do
    Hope lives on, if not through me through song
    I'm getting the long, take deep breaths and hold on
    I write like I realize I could be gone

    I'm here, is the true meaning of love clear?
    If love is pain, is love really fair?
    Is the meaning of life just to breed?
    Is death losing all of your precious things?

    Some think men don't cry, well, here's tears
    Been told all these lives for these years
    It's unclear why truth is untold
    But hold fast and truth will unfold

    I know but it's kinda hard to believe
    That a whole generation will die over greed
    And that most of our young will die overseas
    But it all remains to go unseen

    We are living for today not the past, trying to hold on
    Cause the trouble won't last
    We are showing that the roots run deep
    And the hope won't cease 'cause everyday we believe

    We will, hold on and hold out, put it together
    And make it work somehow
    This is, this for Malcolm and music
    My story, my movement, never forgetting the children

    Keep your head to the sky
    The only way that you fail is if you never ever try
    Where I come from, I'm there for you, care for you
    You don't have to worry I'm gonna always be there for you

    Doing what, laying the foundation 'cause we gonna make it
    But it's gonna take dedication
    And what and hope and love and peace
    I hope one day you'll see and then you can join us

    Listen if you love me say the words to me
    I'm surrounded by so many things that hurt to me
    You know you'll always come first to me
    This is music, it ain't nothing but a verse to me

    Remember after the pain there's sunshine
    It's not in vain we all feel it sometimes
    Stay strong, hold on, we gonna make good
    Every member [Incomprehensible]

    We are living for today not the past, trying to hold on
    Cause the trouble won't last
    We are showing that the roots run deep
    And the hope won't cease 'cause everyday we believe

    We will, hold on and hold out, put it together
    And make it work somehow
    This is, this for Malcolm and music
    My story, my movement, never forgetting the children

    This is for the mothers single handed
    For all the ghettos way to dammit
    Hey, the world, don't you panic
    Let courage lead you right

    Darkness is temporary
    Even though the future's looking scary, yeah it is
    The most I don't make mistakes
    When your chosen us the light

    I know we're a long way from home
    On this land that they stole, took it all
    Gave us drugs after gold
    Incarceration to a fold

    To raise the murder toll
    What else, to divide communities
    Do away with unity
    Where the strength is human beings

    We are living for today not the past, trying to hold on
    Cause the trouble won't last
    We are showing that the roots run deep
    And the hope won't cease 'cause everyday we believe

    We will, hold on and hold out, put it together
    And make it work somehow
    This is, this for Malcolm and music
    My story, my movement, never forgetting the children

    We are living for today not the past, trying to hold on
    Cause the trouble won't last
    We are showing that the roots run deep
    And the hope won't cease 'cause everyday we believe

    We will, hold on and hold out, put it together
    And make it work somehow
    This is, this for Malcolm and music
    My story, my movement, never forgetting the children
