about

Based off the idea "Unbutu"

lyrics

I Am, because we are.

Intimidation of the masses holds the cover over your eyes
Provides the guise of fear.
Pulling focus from the means to live for others
Think for yourself and you just may disrupt the system
It's obvious what they're doing here:
Twisting words so that we turn on one another

I see the signs
the tree of life provides for every vine
Why waste our days studying the difference between you and I?
We're playing for the same team
Aren't we striving towards the same dream?
Let's compromise the ride by riding fear with love

I am because we are

Weave the lie
spread it like a virus to the world
Make us obey
Take our minds and strap them to the ride
Make believe it's all okay
Guard us like dogs on a leash
Barking at the freedom that's just out of reach
Step off the ride and recognize that love is all you need.

I am because we are

The ride is a lie which many base their lives
Take the wheel, enrich the mind and shed some light.
