More We Can Do
Ft. Rainman, Molly Apirana & Focus
It’s easy to just kick on back and acknowledge that what we get up to on a daily basis is somewhat destructive and just accept that. I guess the bigger picture is so grand its overwhelming and we are kind of obliged to play in this money driven pollution spinning cycle. It’s kind of necessary in a lot of ways for us to contribute in this way. We don’t have money and we don’t have time to take on this dragon, “you don’t stand for me, I won’t fall for you” – speaks Rainman on the struggle of looking after oneself in this world. Although there is lots to do, we can always take it slow. “In a minuet we can change, there is more we can do in a day” – that’s Me on the Hook. Even if its just a little bit more, change is necessary. At the end of the day “we’re all the same, just some got a bigger ball and chain…..the format’s all crap, some are falling away” – That is Focus rounding it up… some people are copping it for what the majority are mindlessly doing.
Verse 01 (Zelus)
This one goes out to the kids
all in a mix in a sense they know
but they are innocent
hey yo there’s more we could do
play doh like the stock exchange
lay low cause planes be loaded
news paper says we gotta cover up
but are we dumb enough
to believe the news
gotta laugh it up
what they trying prove
in china the medicine you buy
the diner food
the advertiser for the appetite
its all news
satellites bought by the savage guys
trying touch the sky with money
free energy ain’t nothing
until it can make money
some reason, we all gotta pollute
some people just gotta lose
life is hard, there is more we can do
fighting with what
can’t wash blood with blood
killing who will make what right
this ain’t brain science scratch your head
support the place
where you lay your bead
there’s more we can do now take a step
Chorus (Molly Apirana, Zelus)
In a minuet we can change
there’s more we can do in a day.
Wake up yo whose in a race?
is it too in ya face?
if you can’t see which ways up.
Can you even see whats odd?
everyone’s to blame but its no ones fault
Verse 2 – Rainman
I was just talking to this dude
the other day man.
He was frustrated, I dunno.
this is what he had to say.
I woke up feeling sick
like I caught the flu.
I wanna quit just forfeit and lose.
I feel small like I’m four foot two.
I feel stuck like they poured on glue.
Seems like they open the door for a few,
and you gotta money to afford the view.
Gotta have time to absorb the truth,
but I don’t,
I got a payment on the mortgage due.
I got two kids and two more that’s due.
See the wife got fruit that’ll fall in June,
but I think
what world will they walk into.
If there’s a will there’s a way
to find more I could do.
Mainstream TV I’m appalled at the news,
appalled at the rubbish
that they pour onto you.
So I dig deeper, there’s more its true,
you don’t stand for me
I wont fall for you.
Verse 3 – Focus
Yeah lets just chill for a minuet,
and forget about
our views and opinions,
and just be in harmony
and jam under the mulberry tree.
With a soulful beat and a cold VB
with our closest peeps
on the coastal streets.
Faith and hope all up in smoke.
Paper notes rolled up in loafs.
Pass the marge
I can’t believe its not butter.
Its all done up, the cars that are done up
get the girls that are done up.
In the end whose one up?
Where all the same just just some gotta
bigger ball and chain
still we all complain
wheres there’s other cats
in the pouring rain
conform to form a lane
formulate a formulate in a formal way
the formats all crap
some are falling away.
