Lyrics: 

Need a Leader

Look at yourself
Ya' got nothin to lose
Shoot, stab, kill
Then blame da blues
Attitude in the gutter
Self destruct, despise
Who ya' are
Thinkin' nigga
When ya' should ask why?

Need a leader to expose what we really do
To our own when we blame, ain't nothin' new
Callin' everybody racist who don't tolerate
Community behavior that defines our fate
Drug addicts, womanizers, on the down low too
Welfare checks some now wanna coup
Nothin gonna change till we look in the mirror
If we lucky then in time we see ourselves clearer

Look at yourself
Ya' got nothin to lose
Shoot, stab, kill
Then blame da blues
Attitude in the gutter
Self destruct, despise
Who ya' are
Thinkin' nigga
When ya' should ask why?

NEED A LEADER, NEED A LEADER
NEED A LEADER NOW
NEED A LEADER, NEED A LEADER
NEED A LEADER
SOMEHOW

Empty space
No Martin Luther King
No momma no daddy
Teach us to sing

NEED A LEADER, NEED A LEADER
NEED A LEADER NOW
NEED A LEADER, NEED A LEADER
NEED A LEADER
SOMEHOW

Oh, thank you very much. What a nice compliment. I guess you can say my experiences have been fairly wide and varied and that influences my writing.
