Better Days

I'm hoping for better days
with better ways of living
we all on a paper chase
lookin for better ways to get it
but the only figit our digits make
is droppin, to put food on our dinner plates
but there isn't always enough to cover
the covering of our heads after dinner's ate
but we are survivalist, we don't panic
we don't hypervenilate, we with stand it
cause you can't fight the struggles in life and not get damaged
but when will we get bandaged instead of banished
and instead of slammin
when will we lift those that surround us
see, if we stand to lift those that down us
then we'll reach that point that even our downs are up
and our ups are more higher, more flyer
thats what we should try to aquire
but it takes cooporation, everybody to chip in
if we are to have better days
with better ways of living
