The World We Live In

In this world that I live in/with everyday given/where I'm provoked with decision after decision/in a world full of peace, but yet can be so cold/where some try to make peace, but others sell their soul/in this world I've adapted to/with various attitudes/and sharing the latitude/opinions and factual/a world full of love, a world full of hate/where some expect handouts and some pull their weight/and to a big baller, you ain't shit if you're poor/in this world, we should steal from the rich, give to the poor/a world I've grown to know/where I call home and so/I get in my zone and flow/and make the shit known to those/in this world I live in/with everyday given/in this world I live in/with a picture so vivid/in a world that confuses me sometimes/like I'm loosin' it sometimes/express myself and put to use on what's inside/a world full of good, a world full of bad/in this world, get down to biz, save the bull for last/in a world I live in/with everyday given/in this world I live in/lend your ears and listen/in this world nowadays, racism still exists/and screwing over your own kind, what kinda shit is this? /in this world, some will sacrifice their will for greed/and others devote their time to help the ill, in need/like what's this world come to and what has it become? /where every innocent soul is blasted by a gun/this is the world we live in/with everyday given/the world we live in/better days I'm wishin'/the world we live in/from my concocted, mental vision/feel me and listen/this is the world we live in

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
