my brother, why you drag your feet?
hey sister, do you feel your incomplete?
and mother, where did we go wrong?
we're losing faith, it won't take us long
there comes a time, when you must decide
to break free from the crowd,
to be your own person now
and time can't be bought,
don't cave under pressure like you've been taught
rise above the gravity, and keep your chin up

i tell you, seek the truth
it will not come find you
people say, they know the way
but you have to find your own

there are others all along our path,
they will test you, stop and keep you slow
some will love you, and want to let you go
if you teach yourself to just let go

my brother, the morning sun will come
and sister, try to have some fun
and children, don't waste time, use your mind
and you will find

that our mother can sustain us,
but she cannot live in vain for us
