Yoa - is living in the jungle - fighting for survival - but
There's no place to go.

Yoa - there's pressure all around - the walls are crumbling
Down - the walls are coming down on you.

It is time we rectify this now - we got to see it now - got
To see it now - now - now.

They attack you from the right side - down the left side -
Down the middle till you don't know who you are.
Stay around - think it don't really matter - there trying to put
You 6 feet under the ground.

It is time we rectify this now - we got to feel this now - got
To feel this now - now - now.

It is time we rectify this now - we got to heal it now -
Got to heal it now - now - now.

Yoa - is living in the jungle - fighting for survival
But there's no place to go - no place to go - no place to go.

The rich get richer and the poor get poorer
Now there's no place left to go
Got to get off of this rot
Do you want to be born here again?
I don't want to be bored here again
'cause this ain't no existence
Beware of those guys in disguise
Were living in the jungle fighting for survival
Can't wait much longer - hurry

They'll attack you from the right side - down the left side
Down the middle till you don't know where you are.
Stick around - think it don't really matter - there trying to put
You 6 feet under the ground.

It is time we rectify this now - we got to hear it now - got
To hear it now - now - now.

Yoa - youth youth youth youth youth
Yoa - yoa - you you you you
