lyrics

This one's for all my people
Goin against the grain
And feelin the struggle
I said we must maintain
Fighting for freedom
In a babylon game
This system's staying the same
We're bringing about a change

This one's for all my people
Goin against the grain
And feelin the pressure drop
Said we must maintain
Holding down our position by breaking the chain
With a brand new rendition cause this world needs change

Gotta get away from the day to day
Workin till your soul is gray
Can't seem to find a way
To try and ease your pain
Because every day you're feelin drained
But you just can't complain
Cause you've got to make your pay
No matter what they say...
