Livin on Concrete

By. V.L. Hain aka Superbabymama

When yu walkin thru the downtown, and lookin in around, yu see the down of humanity, who was once somebodys baby, layin down on the concrete, street, on the ground

And do ya dare to care, and say what you want to say, step on and stare-

Double standard mind warped thinkin, not my problem, this is where-

Ya got it wrong, think you are strong, move along, but its your conscience layin there-

Cuz it is what it is-what it is-what it is

Livin on concrete-

What it is-what it is-what it is

Livin on concreteÉ

So, call it whatever you wanna call it - at a distance

But in reality, its a casualty of a capitalist existence

Thru the food chain of command, its the plan of the man

So step off- shut the fuck up, walk on by, why take a stand?

And be grateful for what you got, even if ya been just tossed a bread crumb

Cuz the hypocrisy of democracys leavin nothing for that street bum-

What it is-what it is-what it is

Livin on concrete-

What it is-what it is-what it is

Livin on concrete

NIMBYism ideology, no apology, psychology

Havent ya realized, ya been hypnotized, homogenized, desensitized?

To a typical, statistical, egotistical psychology

To accept, the neglect and disrespect your own humanity

What it is-what it is-what it is

Livin on concrete-

What it is-what it is-what it is

Livin on the street.

So call it whatever ya wanna call it!
