It's all in the language


Sometimes you have to speak
to people in their own language
just to make them hear you
say it loud and proud
sometimes you have to speak
to people in their language
for them to fully understand you
so tell them what you know
sometimes you have to talk
to people in their own language
to make them fear you
back the hell up
sometimes you have to speak
to people in their own language
or anyway you know how
it's the only way
they will pause and make an effort
to really understand you
sometimes you have to shake them
shock them, wake them up
just watch the language
