ah, ah, wooooo, yo, active i...
somma dem live fi die
somma dem live fi i & i

what happened to the people?
none of em ever equal
they been teachin' from a steeple
you can reach without knowing the way
freedom goin' away but greed stay
but don't ya know
the seed that mek it grow
is blowin away
somma dem eye go blind
but somma their minds can see
the reason they ain't findin' what they need
they focused on the green
and just proceed
with goals they don't need
not hungry but they feed
their mind bleed, but...

i feel no way
i feel no way
i feel no way
that's right i feel no way
i keep seein' shades of green
beginning to fade to grey
no one sayin' what they mean
nobody knowin' the way

well be that as it may
I still feel no way
take no sides in this game they play
we supersede that way
dem say stay, we run far away
been down that straight and narrow
now some might say we stray
you see dem talkin' about the worth and the gain
but green shades of green beginning to fade to grey
it's a shame that the same ones we hate dictate the day to day
and the ones who make a change dem assassinate, but still...


Bridge - (Paradame):
It's funny how people think that they see with their eyes
but little do they know reality breeds in their mind
motivated by money, power, self, and ego,
but we know possession is an illusion, a light show
ultimate end isn't external
it's inside, internal
you are eternal
what is greed if everything we observe is the same?
already own the moon, the sky, says Paradame

the middle man dividend limited by the vision they livin'
we givin' a bit of a different opinion, need none, na, one love ya

(J.Lee and Paradame):
if you knew what you were, would you feel the same?
some of these people think that this life's a game

i feel no way, wha ahh ah...
