Yeah
2gether

Ur boy got popped n a drive-by yesterday
He'll b lucky if he makes it thru the night is what the doctors say
U can take revenge or U can b the 1 2 break the chain
U look up n the sky 4 an answer and it starts 2 rain

What r we if we're not 2gether?
How do we make a life that's better? (Yeah)
Cuz when we b killin' 1 another (Take each other out)
How do we call each other brother? (Huh, how? Mm, check it)
U tell me

What's the chance of a brother gettin' off the block?
What's the chance, not a damn
If all he wanna do is sell chicken wings and the rock?
U can blame the system, U can b the 1 2 even the score, huh
Yeah, huh, U look up n the sky 4 an answer and it starts 2 pour
Drop it, huh

What r we if we're not 2gether?
How do we make a life that's better? (Yeah)
Cuz when we b killin' 1 another (Take each other out)
How do we call each other brother? (Huh, how?)
U tell me (Tell 'em)

Why is slangin' them thangs, coppin' a stroll, flashin' a sign
Key topics on a young black mind?
Cuz it's the picture that we give 'em and they illustrate
Black on black genocide has started 2 escalate
Every brother ain't a brother cuz of color, this is true
But I can still say 2 my brother, "Much love, boo"
Please Lord, give me the strength and make it quick
Cuz my people won't take another nightstick
T'huh

What r we if we're not 2gether?
How do we make a life that's better? (Yeah)
Cuz when we b killin' 1 another (Take each other out)
How do we call each other brother? (I don't know)
U tell me

What r we if we're not 2gether? (Yeah, the New Power Generation)
How do we make a life that's better? (Straight up 4 '93)
Cuz when we b killin' 1 another (C'mon, c'mon c'mon)
How do we call each other brother? (I don't know)
U tell me (Yeah)

Yo, hmph, it's simple
From the old 2 the young, 2 uplift we must give the gift
Gift of knowledge, that is, huh
Teach our young, huh, that all n life ain't fun, huh
And 2 make a life that's better, my people must stick 2gether
The choice is urs

What r we if we're not 2gether?
How do we make a life that's better?
Cuz when we b killin' 1 another
How do we call each other brother?
What r we if we're not 2gether?
How do we make a life that's better? (2gether)
Cuz when we b killin' 1 another
How do we call each other brother?
U tell me
2gether
2gether
