When there's nothing new under the sun, I wonder how do things change?
I've been locked up 7 years and feel like I haven’t missed a thang.
Black people are still oppressed and impoverished
The males are still drug dealers and robbers
The females are still raising bad ass kids without their fathers
And the ones who indoctrinated us all are still not being held responsible...
Ancient Egyptians were draped in gold too
But the rappers back then were called philosophers and prophets.
That's back when Royal blood running thru your veins meant something iconic.
Money holds more weight than honor.
Greed will make the most honorable man do what's dishonorable.
No one sticks to the code anymore but that’s what they really meant by, global warming.
Because the weather been up and down since the beginning of time.
And there's been snakes in the grass since Eve met Adam and she bit that apple.
And that was way before Cain killed Abel
Ever since we were able to live we were enabled to die.
Some faster than others, some harsher than others
And we still never get answers to why.
If time didn't have a number
If days didn't have a name
We would all understand that nothing ever changes, except our perspective of thangs...
