"Crowd Mentality"

[Spoken Intro]
Now we’re gonna talk about something
serious

Yo! M.I., Yo! Chocolate City,
Yo! Rythchus Era

Verse:
If you don’t have a mind of your
own
Don’t be disappointed, this
is fine, be a clone
Listen to me rhyme, I’m done trying
to be mine all alone
And to make things connect like
a spine to a bone
I’ve changed my mind I’d rather
be the same as
All these fake ass entertainers
Make bad music just to rock in
arenas
Use words like… (no bad language
on radio)
‘Cos I tried hard to make the difference
Make the kind of music youse can
use as reference
Everybody else say: let’s dance
Who am I to tell them otherwise?
That’s a job for Reverends
So I’m ready now to join the movement
Together press for negative
improvement
Everybody or not
To forever end the search for
life

[Hook]
So when I say jump (jump)
Everybody in the place dance
(dance)
Everybody in the place move (move)
Everybody in the world just scream
(scream! scream!!)
When I say jump (jump)
Everybody in the place dance
(dance)
Everybody in the place move (move)
Everybody in the whole world
stop (scream? Huh? Oh-uh?)

Verse:
If you don’t have a mind for yourself
Don’t be disappointed, this
is good for your health
It’s the road to riches and to
diamonds and wealth
Redesigned it myself, to all
Black people put your mind on your
shelf
It’s Ok to be poor, be needy
Better yet still care for more,
be greedy
Everybody get mis-educated
Be lazy, fat, stupid with your
mind sedated
No matter how many songs I sing
About truth, honesty, it’ll
never change a thing
I just wanna be rich and famous
The world is screaming out: Please
entertain us!
Yo, the whole world is glass or
plastic
It’s split like refraction,
need action drastic
So forgive me I’m a tad sarcastic
These venomous lyrics on my lips
like chopsticks

[Hook 2]
So when I say sit (sit)
Everybody in the place stand
(stand)
Everybody in the place jump (jump)
Everybody in the place scream
(scream! scream!!)
When I say sit (sit)
Everybody in the place stand
(stand)
Everybody in the world just jump
(jump)
Everybody in the world be yourself
(be yourself, be yourself)

Yeah, break it down, break it
down, break it down (x3)
Here we go!

Verse:
So the moral of this song is
There are people walking around
just like zombies
And it’s so strange, how people
are afraid of change
Afraid of what would happen if
we re-arrange
So most Black people are just
doing what the crowd do
Doing what the system say, that
we’re allowed to
So break free from the crowd mentality
And then we can start to build
a new reality.

(Now you’ve got to know
Said you’ve got to know
And you’ve got to know
Who you are)

[Hook 3]
So come on, everybody in the place
fly
Everybody in the place dream
Everybody in the place be yourself
(be yourself, be yourself)
When I say shine (shine)
Everybody in the place fly (fly)
Everybody in the place dream
(dream)
Everybody in the place be yourself
(be yourself, be yourself)
When I say sing (sing)
Everybody in the place speak
(speak)
Everybody in the place c’mon
shout (shout)
Everybody in the place be yourself
(be yourself, be yourself)
When I say sing (sing)
Everybody in the place speak
(speak)
Everybody in the place shout
(shout)
Everybody in the place be yourself
(be yourself, be yourself)

Be yourself

Yo! Be Black / Beautiful / Strong
/ Correct / Nice / Good / Right
/ Tight / Alright / Creative /
Native / Real / Have Skills, Stand

Tall
And be all you can be

(Now you’ve got to know
Said you’ve got to know
And you’ve got to know
Who you are)

This song is from the album "Talk About It"
