Sunstep (Mars Ill)

[Verse #1] It's a common theme. The world is monotone and mean It's grown into a full-blown bag of bones that holds reserves of self-esteem And it's worse to melt a dream away with nothing there to replace it with Smashed hopes never heal and when it peels away, his faith is stripped The paces trip the walk and talk is cheap but still in stock Public outrage screams for justice, looting shops and killing cops The wheels can't stop because it's downhill and the music's up to loud Fingers plug their ears, now shouts rang out and reason's not allowed Believers got to proud 'cause we held the magic backstage passes Now they act like fascists, blocking all the gates to heavenly access And that's just when the package has no doorstep left to land on Blacklisted seekers wander wondering what it means to be transformed They can't see because the pastor's lingo wasn't made for their people White-collar congregation makes contributions to his ego And it's evil and it hurts and it tears us all apart And I swear a man can blind you with the blackness in his heart The shattered parts of speech are hard to reach in times of need The cuts are deep, but I can't bleed unless I think it helps you see I'll stand against oppression although they claim it sets me free 'Cause even when I'm speaking life I know that death is deaf to me.. [Hook] Gather in together where the sky meets the basement Gotta make the world a better place where you take it Face to the sunrise, feet to the basement Walk everybody, just walk, walk Gather in together where the sky meets the basement Gotta make the world a better place where you take it Face to the sunrise, feet to the basement Walk everybody just walk, walk...[Repeat] [Bridge] Go for the uprise, huddled in the playground Cuddle the women and kids. Tell 'em to stay down Fellowship with anybody willing to work Then sell a bit of land between heaven and Earth Catalog the converts. Carry cross for the crippled Bury every soul that falls anywhere inside the middle Bang your head against the backdrop. Block out the bad thoughts Cut out the trash talk, ready for the blast off Bang your head against the backdrop. Block out the bad thoughts Cut out the trash talk, ready for the blast off Bang your head against the backdrop. Block out the bad thoughts Cut out the trash talk, ready for the blast off.. [Verse #2] I wanna be a better man. I wanna strip the flesh from spirit I wanna write the songs that people sing that inspire them to be fearless Never changing my appearance for moments edited and altered Full of awkward things to say today for the lucky seventh caller I've considered every offer on its merits before I refused it And that's mainly on the basis of their generic brand of two-cents If there's land beneath the cruise ship, then it's time to rock the boat If your label is a nuisance, then it's time to let 'em go If it's time for execution, make sure to protect your throat If you're losing your grip, hold tight to the end of the rope If you're broken or you're broke, take a breath and count your blessings slow It's feast or famine. Sometimes you starve, sometimes you choke Sometimes you think, sometimes you know Sometimes you pay, sometimes you owe Sometimes it burns a hole inside but you're too proud to let it show Reap or sow, keep breathing slow because we need to know the difference There's a time to walk on the sun, but there's a time to keep your distance.. [Hook] [Bridge]
