Right Now Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Hey...stay...nappy roots....yeah...hey...
Now if the world was my oyster
Baby girl everyday could be red lobster
And you would be draped in pearls
But it's not read the front page herald we need help
Sometime I wish I could save the world
Till death I wonder if there's any heroes left
Quiet is kept won't hold my breath
Land of the slaves, home of the graves
Of war aids, young aids, gone crazed
These military ways in a flak scene
Verse 2
Love and basketball
Blood and alcohol
Cryin' my eyes out
As I watch the tower fall
Nowhere is safe, comfort is a coffin man
Lookin' out the window duckin' and crawlin' man
Daddy your son is callin' man
Look at this broken man
With broken plans
Thankfull as hell we holdin' hands
Now I'm feelin' love used to livin' it up
Not givin' a fuck, livin's enough
Verse 3
You got to stand for something
How about some hardcore
Save the world
Around the globe in ninety days
Hell on earth they say its nintey-nine ways
To meet your maker, dare the devil and I bet you be brave
It's just a phase
Like in puberty at school to be crazed
I got the classroom bully on my list to behave
And if he can't then I'ma show him what it means to be saved
I'm just a nerd on my last straw
Bout ten of this my last call
My self esteem extended like this planet bout to blast off
Three- two-one
Feel the black planet
I'm like damn is that granite
That I could be a rapper, a hobo, or some mechanic
That I could be a failure, in fact that's how I planned it
'Cause I could never say the whole world is too demanding
And I could never video shoes I couldn't handle it
So what if I tried to just do scales and not dibs
And I settled every god in the crib until then
Just prepared for this war to begin so you could stand up
Verse 4
You got to stand for something
(so you can stand up)
You got to stand for something
You got to stand for something
(but nothing)
Verse 5
Mentally still they whippin' us
Thirty lashes
Ain't no love, ain't no sympathy
Them dirty bastards
Be washin' our brains with chemicals
Insubliminal leaving our sight impaired
But its right there
In plain view claim you
Pack a pistol already but the missiles are already aimed to shoot
One push of a button and this whole ****** game is through
All of a sudden there's mushroom clouds
Evacuate the crowd
It's too late, it contaminates the (?)
The symptoms are maliable contagious
Without protection its infecting all ages
Soon your body's going through stages
All at once the machine rages
Verse 6
Right now
(contaminate the planet, do it)
Right now
(no time is better than the present)
Right now
(we got to see some homie make it)
Right now
(im tired of this now)
Right now
(exterminate the planet, do it)
Right now
(no time is better than the present)
Right now
(we got to see some homie make it)
Right now
(the time is now)
Verse 7
You got to stand for something
