    Lyrics

    There's no such thing as a government
    There's only people rulin over people
    People jerkin around people
    People lendin a hand to people..
    What part of the system do you play?

    Who do you oppress? .. Uhh!

    [Chorus]
    What kinda world are we livin in? Yo
    What kinda world are we livin innnnnn?
    Can I get with my people? Can I sit with my people?
    Break bread with my people? Move ahead with my people?

    [Chorus] - 1/2

    [KRS-One]
    When every day, seven thousand kids are gettin locked up
    When every day the justice system seems to stay stocked up
    When every day they cuttin 'em down 'fore they even pop up
    When every day you gotta duck 'fore you get shot up
    What kinda world are we livin in, spinnin in
    Winnin in, sinnin in, let us begin again
    Churches are ran like corporations makin me holla
    Corporations are ran like churches praisin the dollar
    There's no way out, or is it? Release your doubt and live it
    Teachin metaphysics don't listen to these critics hear it
    What kinda world are we livin in?
    Believe in yourself, achieve for yourself, see for yourself
    Speak for yourself, never weaken yourself, by deceivin yourself
    Believe in your wealth, see'mon!

    [Chorus]


    [KRS-One]
    Yo, yo, yeah
    What kinda world are we livin out, we move about
    in fear and doubt, tryin to get more clout
    Just check it check it out, we took the wrong route
    to a morality drought, basically I'm callin 'em out
    What kinda world are we livin in, when a song
    will not get on, unless it talks 'bout thongs
    Now where did we go wrong? We don't have long
    Preference all torn all worn not norm and all gone
    What kinda world do we live around, when we lay around
    Let me break it down, they shuttin us down
    while we play around, we fallin, stallin
    while God's callin, all in to fall in

    [Chorus]

    [Chorus] - 1/2

    [KRS-One]
    When every day another unwanted pregnancy ends
    When every day another person is betrayed by a friend
    When every day it never ends, and the people pretend
    like the President is there cause of them, let me ask
    What kinda world can we really trust
    when the cops they can shoot at us? Bo bo!
    What kinda world can we really grow (ohh)
    when our daughters want to be hoes (ohh)
    and a father that nobody knows (ohh)
    and a mother wearin them sexy clothes (ho)
    What kinda world are we livin in, yo
    What kinda world are we livin in, uhh

    [Chorus] w/ variations

    [KRS]
    Can I get with my people? Can I sit with my people?
    Break bread with my people? Move ahead with my people?
    Can I sit with my people? Can I get with my people?
    Break bread with my people? Move ahead with my people?
    Can I sit with my people? Can I get with my people?
    Break bread with my people? Move ahead with my people?
    Fresh.. for two-thousand-one.. you SU-CKAZZZZZZ!
