The Basics (Reprise) Lyrics

The Basics (Reprise) ft. Andrea McLean

Chorus1, Andrea McLean:
He walked on water, still the nails met the cross
He brought us hope, seven hundred and fifty shots went off
The trails They blazed
The cross They bore

Verse, Karim Rushdy:
Some people praise Muhammad, some people praisin’ Jesus
Some people praise themselves and somehow war is where that leads us!
The air is filled with x-rays, there’s children livin’ as sex slaves
And the upper class in that rat race are still just livin’ as tech slaves
They say that life is what you make, but it can make you
So break through that fake you and make unity
Because it’s faith that will take you to the place that never left you
It’s spiritual and it’s mystical but it’s simplistic: it’s the best you.
Some people never say God, some people say Allah
Some people pray everyday and end their prayers with Baha’u’llah
Some atheists might claim that religion is all just vagueness
Religionists might claim that atheism is makeshift
But nobody’s right if they’re livin’ a life full prejudice and full of hatred
How can we live in a world where some people don’t eat but some live in a spaceship
Corruption was never this blatant, look on the news there’s a rape or a racist
In between you and me that’s where the blame is
So with a unified voice so I can’t take this
That’s just the basics, that’s just the basics

Chorus 2, Andrea McLean:
He said unite the people, was sent to prison with a smile
He said all peoples are equal, and we gave Him exile!
The trails They blazed
The cross They bore
