  • We are here
    We are here for all of us
    We are here for all of us
    That's why we are here, why we are here
    We are here

    Bombs over Baghdad, tryna get something we ain't never had
    Let's start with a good dad
    So real but it's so sad
    And while we burnin' this incense, we gon' pray for the innocent
    'Cause right now it don't make sense
    Right now it don't make sense

    Let's talk about Chi town
    Let's talk about Gaza
    Let's talk about, let's talk about Israel
    'Cause right now it is real
    Let's talk about, let's talk Nigeria
    In a mass hysteria, yeah
    Our souls are brought together so that we could love each other
    Brother,

    We are here
    We are here for all of us
    We are here for all of us
    That's why we are here, why we are here
    We are here

    No guns made in Harlem, but yet crime is a problem
    He wanna shine, they wanna rob him
    Single mother, where they come from?
    How we gonna save the nation, with no support for education
    'Cause right now it don't make sense
    Right now it don't make sense

    Let's talk about our part
    My heart touch your heart
    Let's talk about, let's talk about living
    Had enough of dying, not what we all about
    Let's do more giving
    Do more forgiving, yeah
    Our souls were brought together so that we could love each other
    Sister,

    We are here
    We are here for all of us
    We are here for all of us
    That's why we are here, why we are here
    We are here
    We are here for all of us
    We are here for all of us
    That's why we are here, why we are here
