This song never fails to make a gloomy day bright! I encourage you all to listen to this song, see if you understand the lyrics. What is the message of the song?
This is real talk
This is nonstop
It is loop now tongue and mind
Played off the sidewalk straight to your boom box
How it travels from here to memory
Well this is medicine
There’s a message from within
And each will find them in their own time
Well this is music
This is how I use it
It makes you move and move the movement
This is how I focus
Knowing it’s not hopeless
But it sure starts with me and ends on a whole note
Musical medicine, this is my healing, for past and present future things to come.
I see people stressing over space and possessions
Out of fear of need for visualate (visualize)of our abundance
Give me examples or something tangible
Something I can get my hands on and find real meaning
Where is the medicine, well I’ve been searching
I suppose each will find their own kind
Well everything’s at stake
It makes it hard to concentrate
There are men who see a war and see a paycheck
Such different programming
To live so fearfully
Terror this and terror that terrible reality
There is no medicine on the television so turn it off and turn yourself around.
Let’s just face it, the world’s fucking racist
Even the most peaceful of us gets caught in the trend
To live cohesively is almost a fantasy
And we ought to know it starts with humbling our egos
What is the medicine for cultural wounding?
Has its moments, has its melodies, has its time.
Well I was listening to the outgoing seasons
About climate change and other reasons
When the sky opened like I had been hoping
And there came horses by the thousands and there was thunder on their tongues and lightening on their minds
And they were singing this old melody from some other time.
They sang don’t waste your hate
Rather gather and create
Be of service
Be a sensible person
Use your words don’t be nervous
You can do this you’ve got purpose
Find your medicine and use it.
