What's wrong with Humanity,
Can't believe what me a see
We need more love and unity,
What's wrong with humanity,
Them a worship vanity,

Track Name: YT - In The Streets
Who's gonna care for us?
they never left a share for us
and now they live in fear of us
We're out here in the streets,
Trying to make it happen
The youths are packing it
And anything can happen
Out here in the streets
Trying to make it gwaan
Youths with fire arms
And they're too quick to turn dem on
In the streets, the whole places o insecure
to see tomorrow morning
some of them don't feel so sure
In the streets right now
Things are getting deep right now
