Album: Deal With This

Song: Revelation

One two We don't stop Huh [ VERSE 1 ] A revolution of mass confusion, brothers killin each other Robbin their mother, father, sister and brother They don't wanna get a job, or go to school They think it's cool, but they're playin the fool It's now 1984, five hundred years later We're dominating both sides of the Aequator In sports, music, and makin love But yet we still have trouble rising above It's said that in the later days People shall be movin in different ways There'll be many false prophets, devils in disguise Performin illusions before your very eyes Some have eyes to see, and ears to hear But they cannot utilize them because of fear You have sell-out brothers who will sell their heart For fame and fortune or to get a head start But in the long run they will see That they are nothin else but victims of prophecy Time is running short, the world is in damnation Refuse to follow the laws of creation You can not all be Jesus Christ But you still can make some sacrifice If not for anyone for yourself Cause you have nothin to prove to anyone else We don't longer have a sheperd now, we're lost sheep Have to open your eyes, you can't afford to sleep And a major factor is jealousy Which stops us from obtainin the unity Come on You don't stop [ VERSE 2 ] Times are hard, and people are chillin You can't get a job, but you know you're willin So you go down to the unemployment line And the man throws you out on your behind Then you find some transportation, and you go back home And find your wife cryin on the telephone The police called to say that your job is ill She tried to o.d. on a bottle of pills Now you're mad as hell, and can't take it no more So you grab your gun and walk out the door You find another brother and you take their check And deep down inside you know you're riskin your neck How do you know they don't have a knife? But you have your gun, so then you take their life Now your pocket is full, but can't you see That your soul will burn in hell for eternity? See, I remember back in Brooklyn, when I was a child Actin wild, cause that was the stlye But as I grew older, I learned the deal Because my old lady told me, "Son, be for real You have a chance to be an architect or scientist So why do you choose to be like this?" You have to get yourself together before it's too late It's up to you to be a bum or someone great We all have it in us, and that is why They tell us lies to cover our eyes So we are not able to see the light And differentiate wrong from right You see, the road to vanity is filled with flowers You better be careful of its hypnotic powers While the road to truth is long and full if distress But if you make it through, you're truly the best Come on
