Why Be Tripping

By Songbird

(Intro Chorus)

So why be tripping on me

When our world has enough problems as is

So no need to be stripping me of my humanity

We’ve already got so much indignity

That it has become our vanity

That you don’t need to be tripping on me

{Verse 1}

As we’ve become conditioned by our systems

Imprisoned by our criticisms and our lack of wisdom

Living on the edges of a double edged sword

In the fears of our Gods and their judgments and laws

In the contradictions of trying to settle our scores

While giving a pass to the rich and overlooking the poor

Forgetting to feed the hungry because we are all about the money

And dropping bombs on countries, instead of trying to unite

And accept that all hearts beat alike

No matter if we are black or white

As we all should be given the same rights

Despite our differences, our sexuality and our creeds

Because we all breathe the same air no matter where

(Chorus)

So why be tripping on me

When our world has enough problems as is

So no need to be stripping me of who I am

We’ve already got so much indignity

That you don’t need to be tripping on me

{Verse 2}

As our world always seems to be in crisis

Not just because of the rise of ISIS

But due to all of our many vices

And how we let our arrogance

Not just blind us but entice us

As it seems that we spend more time

Worrying about the rising of gas prices

Than the lack of kindness showing niceness

As we’ve become more bound to trying to find

Whatever ways that we can give into our vices

(Chorus)

So why be tripping on me

When our world has enough problems as is

So no need to be stripping me of who I am

We’ve already got so much indignity

That you don’t need to be tripping on me

{Verse 3}

See you can flip on the news and it will unveil

How we went from schools, to theater shootings, oil spills,

Rioting and looting, to so much blood being spilled

To giving more love to babies who are born as royals

To finding a way or giving into blackmail,

To lack the will to be educated

Or to intercept all the cyber bullying on the internet

As we’d rather be dedicated to being jaded, over medicated

Leaving our jails filled and our children spoiled

While putting guns or pills in the hands of everyone

As nations soil gets tainted by the innocents who are killed

As refugees get turned away because we are to afraid

To open our borders, so let them be slaughtered by mortars

So we can use it as fuel to hate and segregate than to heal

Our lands, rivers, oceans, great lakes and our heartbreaks

While routing, voting, instilling and excusing ignorance

By excluding those who we assume as being immigrants

Just to be avoiding and distorting the truth

And that should make our blood be boiling

(Chorus)

So why be tripping on me

When our world has enough problems as is

So no need to be stripping me of who I am

We’ve already got so much indignity

That you don’t need to be tripping on me
