How Many Times
Lyrics by M. Dayao & LANSKY

we wake each day to find out they choose not to change a damn fuckin’ thing // cause they believe that life in greed is a life worth pursuing // so they forget who they affect those we neglect you can see what happens next // the truth be told we’ll never learn from our mistakes we will never grow // this time we live in is so uncertain and so cold // I wonder someday how this story will be told // 'til then I’ll stand and sing of peace for our children I beg you please // challenge the system and ask yourself

how many times do we have to go on through this painful situation // and how many lives will it take before we build, build a better nation // and how many leaders do we have to follow to find the right direction // oh how many times how many times how many times

I’ll stand and fight for you - we gonna fight stand up and fight (3x)

you ask how I ask why and what will it matter when we all realize // that they lie but I rise they try to hold me down like I don’t know the time, huh // yeah right, wow, no shit, when the levy break and earth shake that’s when they take notice // and then they throw the book at ones who take action //
they give the youth shows about kardashians // but i’m caught up i love fly shit // feel me when i say i earn a check just to buy shit // what’s more important homie ask yourself // look why corporations got you spending more for your health// shit i smoke // yeah i got asthma // obama i’m sorry but i’m moving up to Canada // this is my story yeah i’m sticking to it lansky and my peoples we the truest like uh // we the truest like uh // we the truest like uh

now put your hands up
now put your hands up // rock with it rock with it
now put your hands up

this time we live in is so uncertain and so cold // I wonder someday how this story will be told // so then I’ll stand and sing of peace for our children I beg you please // challenge the system and ask yourself

how many times do we have to go on through this painful situation // and how many lives will it take before we build, build a better nation // and how many leaders do we have to follow to find the right direction // oh how many times how many times how many times

stand and fight with me // we gonna fight stand up and fight
stand and fight with // we gonna fight stand up and fight
we gonna fight here tonight
