What's going on 'cross seas Every minute a child dies by this disease In

Got us trapped souls

Nas:
I can feel what was bothering Marvin Why his words forever remain Dealing
With these modern day problems 'Cause of ignorance surrounding me And my

Fight We better unite As genocide chemical war And the rich and the poor
Know that God delivers a cure

Eve:
It's a shame our reality is devastating People praying for a cure Dying
While they're waiting Ask the Lord for the comfort And strength to face it
All the kids with dreams Won't get the chance to chase it Makes me sad Think
About the lives they would've had Think about the orphan babies Got no moms
And dads How can we sit back and not try to make it right We gotta come
Together We gotta fight for life

You feeling me, right? (Right) I can't be watching people die (Die) And
Watching people cry Let me break it down for a minute If there's enough room
Here for you and for me There's plenty of room for some humanity

All:
Tell me what's going on You got to tell me (What's going on) Tell me (What's
Going on) Tell me (What's going on)
