Song Meaning
Verse 1
Dear mom, Alana's in her second trimester
Stressed out 'cause I'm gone, she acting all extra
We're happy 'cause she knows it's a girl
But we doubtful if we should bring another one in the world
Verse 2
An' the pic you sent with you, and the kids is da bomb
I'm keepin' all my photos in my 23rd Psalm
My best friend Armani lost her arm at the border
Just tryin' to restore a little peace and order
Verse 3
An' it's strange 'cause she reads the Koran
Torn between what side she needs to be on
Haven't slept for days, I squeeze Visine
'Cause no man's eyes should see what I've seen
Verse 4
Soldiers lost their mind, robbin', pillagin'
Tomahawk missiles into civilian villages
And they ease the pain with narcotics
I'm scared but I'm tryin' to remain patriotic
Verse 5
My father, forgive us
'Cause we know not what we doin'
And my brothers, how we gonna tie up
All these loose ends'
Verse 6
And my mother, tryin' to use
Ev'rything you taught me to keep it movin'
And my brothers and sisters, how we gonna tie up
All these loose ends'
Verse 7
New message from mom, at Bringbackthetroopsdot.com
At home they 'Nam, so sad you had to miss Shavonne's prom
Just some songs off the Marvin Gaye 'what's Going On' album
And her smile lit up the room
Verse 8
She asks me if at night when she stares at the moon
Is it possible at the same moment of time
You're starin' as well' 'Cause you two were in tune
Verse 9
Your dad's Purple Heart now hangs over his ashes
An' Trini's alive and wake up with hot flashes
They say the disease's gastric
Have yet to explain the migraines and rashes
Verse 10
And have you seen what the price of gas is'
We can't afford the property taxes
We just want you back at home
Where you belong with your family
You're the backbone
Verse 11
My father, forgive us
'Cause we know not what we doin'
And my brothers, how we gonna tie up
All these loose ends'
Verse 12
And my mother, tryin' to use
Ev'rything you taught me to keep it movin'
And my brothers and sisters, how we gonna tie up
All these loose ends'
Verse 13
Tell me how can we live this way
We've gone so far astray, no one knows what to say
We got young peoples lives at stake
What is it gonna take for us to find a way'
Verse 14
The world is changin', we in danger
'Cause we ain't changin our behavior
We behave like calm is nothing
Ain't concerned with repercussions, ain't that somethin'
Verse 15
Check 'em out now, pointin' fingers
When they know how we got to this point of terror
Precaution could have made the road clearer
Verse 16
But we stuck with mediocre leadership
So we'll just suffer
Who knows what the hell is going on
With conflicts they keep on growing
Verse 17
It's a fucked up situation
When you ain't got no education
On the problem or know what it's about
You gotta help me out
