​Lead The Way

This song is by Sweatshop Union.

Ain't nobody gonna lead the way
It's up to you and me to make the differences we're trying to see
And take control of our own minds
(How many people got control of their minds?)
Take control of our own minds
Stop letting them shape and mold until we go blind
Unlock your brain and set your mind state free.
Set your mind state free

(Verse One)

Once you open the door, their ain't no closing it you're
A soldier at war, living within the core of the storm
Just like the war on CNN, a war where these men send
Missiles at innocent victims and swore to defend them
I'm talking about the war for your soul and the core of the goal
Ownership of everything and total control
Over every facet of life that we live
Hell, that's the reason that we rap on the mics to these kids
Trying to reach them so they'll stand up and fight to resist the system
Help their minds get equipped quicker cause the cycle just gets sicker
The more that we sip liquor and hope that it gets rid of
The problems and makes life better, it's more video
I'm not a bullshitter man, everything that glitters can't
Be gold, we sold our souls for so little land
Now, we gotta stop following these fake leaders
And stand proud and stop swallowing what they feed us

Ain't nobody gonna lead the way
It's up to you and me to make the differences we're trying to see
And take control of our own minds
Stop letting them shape and mold until we go blind

(Verse Two)

Yo,
Once you open your eyes, there ain't no going back to closing your mind
It shows in the shine, not knowing you're frozen in time
From Atlantis to Suma
Babylon to Rome and
To the avid consumer who just travels on the road from
Plato to NATO, to the gavel that they hold
To the billions of children, like cattle that they sold
Every day it's like a battle for your soul
Be aware of all the weapons that you have at your disposal
Know, without a doubt in your heart and soul that
No man can stop you from reaching the hardest goal but
You, allow it to happen
Cowards, you got the power to stop them
The power to trap them and lock them in
They can't live without your fear, like it was oxygen
So breathe in deep and expel the fear and toxins
Stand with me, you might feel the sand shifting
And step away from the sins of our ancestry

Ain't nobody gonna lead the way
It's up to you and me to make the differences we're trying to see
And take control of our own minds
(How many people got control of their minds?)
Ain't nobody gonna lead the way
It's up to you and me to make the differences we're trying to see
And take control of our own minds
Stop letting them shape and mold until we go blind
