Lyrics by Richard Green

"This is my attempt at spoken word. This is my phone call to the president. (That's why I have that effect on it) I get right into it immediately, tell me what you think".
Everybody suffers from struggles,
some of us know it and some of us don't even show it,
the ones that show it are stressed the fuck out,
working 9-5 trying to sort their lives out.
To provide and provide
and keep on providing
and while the government taxes their lives and
they be living in low income housing
and while the rich gets richer
and the poor gets poorer
no one tries to intervene to help the people in the lower class,
and ya'll can kiss my ass,
and while ya'll be getting rich fast,
I'll be helping the people make some cash of their own
and help them get that bank loan
that they always desired
and their the same people that you made redundant and fired,
now how the hell can that be?
You must be an ignorant CEO dumee,
how the hell can you have a man with a PHD
living below the lines of poverty?

I see too many struggles in my life time,
people on their life line
trying to make a single dime..
I see too many struggles in my life time,
people on their life line
trying to make a single dime..

What's the point of war? I just can't understand
why a man
in his right mind would spill the blood of another man
over some stupid shit like gaining a piece of land.
It seems to me that the country
that claims to be the land of the free
are just in it for the money.
They take the lives of the innocent to kill the potentially bad,
these people make me so sad, – so sad,
they create a widow out of loving wives creating nothing but strife,
tell me who the fuck gave them that right.
Man, we should be like Che Guevara and help each others who are struggling,
we can start by helping street people who are huddling
close together sleepless nights and who are torn away from reality,
but sadly – we see them everyday but don't even have the decency to say: 'Hey'.


I see too many struggles in my life time,
people on their life line trying to make a single dime..
I see too many struggles in my life time,
people on their life line trying to make a single dime…
