It's a shame when somebody shows,
Diamonds and pearls to those you don't,
This goes out to the wealthy homes,
That under the moonlight there's a road,
To a place for the struggling,
Where people treat you like a human being,
Free of racism and other things,
Free from money and the imagery,
Why oh why has it come to be?
People look up to celebrities,
They do nothing for you and me,
They should be giving it up to the community,
And this ain't just domestic man,
This is a world wide problem and,
Still people kill for the oil ya,
Why you ask?
Well 'cuz there's demand,
But stay on top says the businessman,
And let the world be left to strand,
Hey next month I'll make twice the grand,
Things they are going just as planned,
And he'll spend most of it on what he sees,
Maybe buy something he may never need,
See now this is the mentality,
Wake up call this is reality

You see now this is the mentality,
Wake up call this is reality

Yesterday I saw a man explain, why he bought his seventh car to date,
How does it feel to live the life you like, with millions of us left without a ride?
And yet we look up to the stars and dream,
What's it's like to live among elite,
I see the future in a rut, with the poorest of the people in the mud
Well here's a message Mr. Business man,
The more you make the more the gap expands,
The more you give the more the love you land,
The more you take the more we suffer man,
But he'll spend most of it on what he sees,
Maybe buy something he may never need,
See now this is the mentality,
Wake up call this is reality

You see now this is the mentality,
Wake up call this is reality
