I wish the way I was living could stop, serving rocks
Knowing the cops is hot when I'm on the block and I
Wish my brother woulda made bail
So I won't have to travel 6 hours to see him in jail and I

Wish that my grandmother wasn't sick
Or that we would just come up on some stacks and hit a lick and I
Wish my homies wouldn't have to suffer
When the streets get the upper hand on us and we lose a brother and I

Wish I could go deep in a zone
And lift the spirits of the world with the words with in this song and I
Wish I could teach a soul to fly
Take away the pain out cha hands and help you hold them high and I

Wish my hommie Butch was still alive
And on the day of his death we had never took that ride and I
Wish God could protect us from the wrong
So that all the soldiers that were sent over seas come home

We will never break, though they devastate, we shall motivate
And we gotta pray, all we got is faith
Instead of thinking about who gonna die to day
The Lord is gonna help you feel better, so you ain't gotta cry today

Sit at the light so long
And then we gotta move straight forward, 'cuz we fight so strong
So when right go wrong
Just say a little prayer, get ya money man, life go on, let's hope

Though I'm hopeful, yes, I am hopeful for today
Take this music and use it, let it take you away
And be hopeful, hopeful and He'll make a way
I know it ain't easy but that's okay, 'cause we hopeful

I wish that you could show some love
Instead of hatin' so much when you see some other people comin' up
I wish I could teach the world to sing
Watch the music and have 'em trippin' of the joy I bring, shit

I wish that we could hold hands
Listen instead of dissin' lessons from a grown man and I
Wish the families that lack, but got love, get some stacks
Brand new shack and a lack that's on dubs and I

Wish we could keep achieving wonders
See the vision of the world through the eyes of Stevie Wonder, you feel me
And I hope all the kids eat
And don't nobody in my family see six feet, ya dig

I hope them mothers stand strong
You can make it whether you wit' him or your man's gone and I
Wish I could give every celly some commissary
And the po po bring the heat on them priest like they did R Kelly and I

Wish that DOC could scream again
And bullets could reverse so Pac and Biggie breath again, shit
Then one day they could speak again
I wish that we only saw good news every time we look at CNN

I wish that we could never get the blues
Wish I could bring back the people that died at E2
I wish that we could walk a path, stay doin' the right thing
Hustle hard, so the kids maintain up in the game, let's hope

Though I'm hopeful, yes, I am hopeful for today
Take this music and use it, let it take you away
And be hopeful, hopeful and He'll make a way
I know it ain't easy but that's okay, 'cause we hopeful

Wish the earth wasn't so apocalyptic
I try to spread my message to the world the best way I can give it
We can make it always so optimistic
If you don't listen gotta live my life the best way I can live it

I pray for justice when we go to court
Wish it was all good so the country never even went to war
Why can't we kick it and just get em on
And in the famous words of Mr King, "Why can't we all just get along"

Or we can find a better way to shop and please and I
Hope we find a better way to cop a keys and I
Wish everybody would just stop and freeze
And ask way are we fulfillin' these downfalls and prophecies

You can be wrong if it's you doubting
With the faith of a mustard seed you can move mountains
And only the heavenly father and ease the hurt
Just let it go and keep prayin' on your knees in church and let's hope

Though I'm hopeful, yes, I am hopeful for today
Take this music and use it, let it take you away
And be hopeful, hopeful and He'll make a way
I know it ain't easy but that's okay

Though I'm hopeful, yes, I am hopeful for today
Take this music and use it, let it take you away
And be hopeful, hopeful and He'll make a way
I know it ain't easy but that's okay, 'cause we hopeful
