    Making Progress

    We keep embellishin upon a new uncharted path
    Expressin what we see and how we comprehend the math
    So there's enough for everyone we gotta make it last
    We gotta make it last..


    As I embark on life's journey from the point where I'm at
    Peace to everyone I know or who I go way back wit
    Every pimp every mack, every gangsta to jack
    Every hustler feedin babies, anybody pro-black
    Every sister raisin kids without the help of a dad
    Wantin for they children all the things that they never had
    All the brothers handlin business even though shit's hard
    Wakin up at five A.M., holdin down three jobs
    All my rasta brethern gettin insight from trees
    To my brothers up in college gettin Ph.D's
    Or any other degree, even if you just read
    For mental health, see you're concious that your mind is free
    All my people locked down, for your past mistakes
    Mentally and spiritually, dwellin past the gates
    You could change your ways, elevate today
    To all recovered alcoholics chillin up in AA
    Every black-owned business, keep doin for self
    Helpin out the community and spreadin the wealth
    Understand that help ain't gonna come from nowhere else
    Revolutionaries makin the unjust get dealth wit
    Head on black people got to meet the task
    Educate, keep learnin, gotta question, ask!
    And let your light keep shinin and remember the past
    By any means necessary, we'll be free at last




    As I embark on life's journey from the point where I'm at
    Peace to everybody strivin to live right and exact
    Even though anxieties try to pull you down
    See your troubles as a blessin and you're homeward bound
    Everybody gotta struggle, that's the way of the world
    Can't develop biceps if you don't do curls
    Can't achieve a a garden if you never water your crops
    If you never paid your dues, then you don't get props
    Couldn't eat a proper meal without cookin it first
    Can't receive a paycheck if you don't do work
    If it wasn't for the rain, then the trees won't grow
    When the spring came around, what a sight to bestow
    When you face adversities, dark clouds won't last
    If you never study, how do you expect to pass?
    The grasshoppers laid around while the ants did chores
    When the winter came around, he was left outdoors
    See the cycle keeps moving like a big machine
    Evolution of the mind, soul body and being
    God'll never put upon you more than you can take
    Sometimes you even gotta learn from OTHER people's mistakes
    So head on black people got to meet the task
    Educate, keep learnin, gotta question, ask!
    And let your light keep shinin and remember the past
    By any means necessary, we'll be free at last
