Ben Harper – Don't Take That Attitude To Your Grave lyrics

You say what's mine is mine and what's yours is mine
Too now you've got more than you can spend but
All of the money in the whole wide world is not
Gonna help you in the end
Now while there's still time to be saved
Don't take that attitude to your grave
Might be too late for you I'm afraid
Don't take that attitude to your grave
Don't you take it there

I hear helicopters over my house
Every day shining their lights and flying low
Treat a child like a criminal from the day that he is born and
You're gonna reap just what you sow now
While there's still time to be saved
Don't take that attitude to your grave
Might be too late for you I'm afraid
Don't take that attitude to your grave
Don't you take it there

So you can move your court case way across town
You can move it across the whole wide globe
But it ain't gonna help your court case up in the sky

When you go to put on your white robe now
While there's still time to be saved
Don't take that attitude to your grave
Might be too late for you I'm afraid
Don't take that attitude to your grave
Don't you take it there

And you dare the children to stay off of drugs
Now I dare you to stop letting them in and how dare you point your finger at a gang out on

The street
While it's you who is committing the sin now while there's still time to be saved
Don't take that attitude to your grave
Might be too late for you I'm afraid
Don't take that attitude to your grave
Don't you take it there
They don't want it there
You know your mother taught you better
Don't take that attitude to your grave
