See Some Change

[verse] - A. Ward
I seen a bum outside the gas station, in a bad place /
Pacin' back and forth, he was hungry, he started trash raidin' /
I walked past fast, avoidin' eye contact /
Cuz I don't have no cash or tips for him, I ignored him /
Got to the whip, started pumpin' my gas /
Sent a text to my chick, thought of somethin' and laughed /
Meanwhile I hear him mumblin', stumblin' drunk /
He got a problem with no answers like he was flunkin' in math /
So I reached out, nah, I ain't holla' back /
Ain't throw a dollar back, my pride I couldn't swallow that /
I just put the nozzle back and dipped off. Plus I had a preconceived notion /
how he'd spend my money I ain't wanna be ripped off /
Reality had set in, carnality's my best friend /
And change don't go together like fatalities and Tekken /
He needed somethin' cheaper, I was thinkin' monetary /
He was thinkin' deeper, I was thinkin' temporary /

Some want change to happen, yet afraid to be it /
Others are too blind by their pride to begin to see it /
But it only takes a single person to believe it /
I know there's someone out there willing to lead it, come on /
If you wanna see some change, then get your hands up /
Let's make a commitment to quit actin' like children, man up /
If you wanna see some change, then get your hands up /
Let's all be the difference we're hopin' to be seein', stand up /

[verse] - Cole
It's so much easier to judge someone than get to know 'em /
It's somehow creepier to love someone than to expose 'em /
Any flaw that someone has, the news REALLY wants you to know it /
They quick to show it and somehow thinks it makes them heroic /
And in our pride, we label others diabolical /
Yet refuse to examine ourselves, that's quite phenomenal /
The foolishness we often exhibit is astronomical man /
I say forget that and come back home like the prodigal, yeah /
I really hate the fact that stereotypes do exist /
We see a muslim on the street and think they 'bout to flip /
We see a bum askin' for change and think he wants a sip /
We see a woman barely dressed and think she prolly strips /
The problem is, we glancin' through our societies' lenses /
They often trippin', and rarely do they seem optimistic /
That's hardly livin', I'm partly livid we often cynics /
Yet we go ballistic when men are pennin' up narcissistic /
