The People

Hook
Teacher what you teaching for
Preacher what you preaching for
Reacher what you seeking for
Seeker what you seeking for
Speaker what you speaking for
If you teaching, teaching for the people
If you ain't preaching, preaching for the people
If you ain't reaching, reaching for the people
If you ain't seeking, seeking for the people
If you ain't speaking, speaking for the people
The people the people the people
The people the people the people
The people the people the people
The people the people the people
For all my people

Verse 1:
False doctrines
Taught by false prophets
For profit
Politicians speak to fill their pockets
Need to stop it
My position I was never told all of my option
Ignorant to my potential
My progress was boxed in
Until I found evidence
Of greatness in my DNA
That me to discover the greatness within
You never know you're destination till you know where you've been
False history
Teaching ignorance
It's all a myth me
How we go from slaves to immigrants
It's all meant to be
An unsolved mystery
Step one to destroy you mentally
Think about it
Essentially if knowledge is power miseducated are misled and misguided intentionally
Easy distracted by the simplest things
Or Facebook live post of brothers being slain in the streets
Whether it's your own kind or the police it's a damn shame

Chorus:
Teach what you teaching for
Preacher what you preaching for
Reacher what you seeking for
Seeker what you seeking for
Speaker what you speaking for
If you teaching, teaching for the people
If you ain't preaching, preaching for the people
If you ain't reaching, reaching for the people
If you ain't seeking, seeking for the people
If you ain't speaking, speaking for the people
The people the people the people
The people the people the people
The people the people the people
The people the people the people
For all my people

Verse 2:
They use religion as a form of control
Back and forward we go
Between a friendly smile and a formidable foe
You're trials come in waves
You pay tides then you reap what you sow
At the cross roads your soul is the toll
At this point we can afford to be
Complacent and trust those in robes that impose their own code
I can tell from their body language and posture
You're an imposter
Not an apostle of true gospel
When you really praise the almighty dollar
You can scream and holla
And be the most read snd intellectual scholar
But if your soul is tainted by the greed and the power
You can't be the shepherd when you're lost with the flock
The wolf shall devour
So I keep my third eye focused on the father
Check my shakras
I'm trying to find peace because my soul has been bothered
Since I fell and lost my honor

Hook
Teacher what you teaching for
Preacher what you preaching for
Reacher what you seeking for
Seeker what you seeking for
Speaker what you speaking for
If you teaching, teaching for the people
If you ain't preaching, preaching for the people
If you ain't reaching, reaching for the people
If you ain't seeking, seeking for the people
If you ain't speaking, speaking for the people
The people the people the people
The people the people the people
The people the people the people
The people the people the people
For all my people

Verse 3
They don't teach the youth they program
They dont reach with both hands
They feed you false narratives
A narrow vision so disparaging masquerading as reality
To stream on your next mobile machines
To catch the next scene of
Sirens screaming like weeping mothers
Who have seen obscene visions of her seed in a bloody puddle
No more hugs or cuddles
No more causing trouble
Now she questions all the thing she taught he was little
He fell victim to a failing system
The odds against him
Doing numbers he can't even spell addition
They said an education would save em from this existence
But school system gave him the first mark on his record
A couple more marks in hall halt your ejected
So now he run the streets school of hard knocks he attended
Graduated first passed to apprentice
Someone ran up for the cash and blast and that fast it ended

Hook
Teacher what you teaching for
Preacher what you preaching for
Reacher what you seeking for
Seeker what you seeking for
Speaker what you speaking for
If you teaching, teaching for the people
If you ain't preaching, preaching for the people
If you ain't reaching, reaching for the people
If you ain't seeking, seeking for the people
If you ain't speaking, speaking for the people
The people the people the people
The people the people the people
The people the people the people
The people the people the people
For all my people
