We could work together like salt and vinegar, shampoo and conditioner, mani/pedi, Wilma Betty, Angel food and confetti, but rather 280, these character limitations, show limits in our character, too many frustrations, how we crave understanding but we lack the patience, I guess we fake patrons, we activists for the hate crimes, but we espouse all the hate lines, we campaign for regulations, to keep us more safe but then turn around and show hate on our own Twitter page
(Whoa) We've got to be better than that (2x)
Still we there talking that hate though, why we be actin' so fake though? Should be united we Ain’t whoa, we just assigning that blame (oh, oh), action is not the same thing as being reactive, it's not as impactive, opinions are not the same thing as an action, so stop with the inaction, I can lift you and you can lift me without you a part of my faction, so get off the screen eventually, we've got to start the unmasking, I'm on that messaging-ish, you on my messaging list, let's let intelligence in and realize the blessing this messaging is People are harder to hate up close, we've got to self-elevate, expose, places where we can relate, stop tryin' to deflate and imitate miracles, bright as the sun, hey we marigolds, emulate love like we merry souls, I want my mediums full of encouragement, focused on nourishment, so it goes All I see trending is outrage. Manufactured, some well-meaning, you always be at the protest homie, but where you at when your neighbor needs feeding? Forget your political leanings, the court of opinion proceeding, we should take note that we're all human beings, and that's what the world's needing
(Whoa) We've got to be better than that (2x) We've gotta be better, better, better, better than that (2x)
We've gotta be ONE!
