lyrics

Transcending light
creativity it shines bright and
understanding is key
and to a child its a necessity
but your mamma yells no child
don't do that
selling drugs on the corner to make your wallet fat and you you
you thought you'd escape this hell
that you have grown on to know so well
and as the times go by
all that you could do is try
A hum, the light a spark whoa little one
well your parent stifled your imagination
well they tried to stifle your imagination but child that can't be done
and as the times go by
all that you can do is try
get one foot in the door
you gotta keep you gotta keep on movin on
cuz it seems everyone
well they all want to
divide and not conquer our fears
and prejudice learned from our parents lasted way too many years
my eyes
well you know they, shed a tear
and as the times go by
all that you can do is try
get one foot in the door
you gotta keep you gotta keep on movin on
cuz all the world is your oyster and you
you are the master of your own destiny
don't you know ya need to break free
of all these chains of hypocrisy
and ignorance is bliss they say
until it comes to haunt you one day
until it comes to haunt you one day
and as the times go by
all that you could do is try
and all that you can do is try
and all that you can do is try
and all that you can do is try
