Now you know
You know just how the whole story goes
Just against the real and the proudest who laugh
Thought i let you know what i'm giving back

Confusion, Difussion
Just show it, You know it
Come'on you can discover (Discover)
You know you can recover (Recover)
You'd be (arriving)
At new (Horizon)
It will be (Surprising)
To me (Keep rising)
Keep rowing (Keep rowin')
Keep showing (Keep showin')
Keep it true and strong in your heart
And you'll get by
But only if you'll make it real

Real, Make it real

We live the lie, deny the love
Hangin' on, with a push and shove
Possession is the motivation
That is hangin' up the whole damn nation
Looks like we always end up in a rut (everybody now!)
Tryin' to make it real compared to what?

Slaughterhouse is killin' hogs
Twisted children killin' frogs
fool dumb bigots gainin' power
Tired old ladies kissin' dogs
Isn't the human race above them all? (I can't use it!)
Try to make it real compared to what?

The President, he's got his war
Still don't know what it is for
They change the game with no rhyme or reason
Drop the mans flag ang they call it treason
We're chicken-feathers roasting like a nut (ooh baby now)
Tryin' to make it real compared to what?

Church on Sunday, sleep and nod
Tryin' to duck the wrath of God
Preacher's fillin' us with fright
He never wondered if he's really right
Iv'e got a fire buring in my gut (I can't kill it)
Tryin' to make it real compared to what?

confusion, difussion
Just show it, you know it
Discover, recover
Surprise'm, keep rising
Surprise it, realize it
Keep rowin', keep showin'
Keep show'em, keep flowin'
Come'on with me baby bat this
And you'll get by
And you'll get by
But only if you'll make it real
Make it real...

Tryin' to make it real compared to what?
