"Do Something With It"

[Chorus]
We been held back from the beginning
System organized to keep us from winning
You can recognize a moment when you're in it
I'm in it and I'm tryna do something with it

Do something with it
Do something with it
Do something with it
Do something with it

Nothing was given to us so we gon' go get it
Winning don't matter if you don't do something with it

[Verse 1]
Let's not be confused about the plan:
They tried to say that I was three fifths of a man
And at least that was an amount
They tried to tell us that a woman didn't count
So why we act surprised by the stacked deck?
We pay for every step: blood, sweat, snapped necks
Mama used to rock a snapback with the X
I didn't get it at the time, I hadn't read his text
He said "By any means," and me, I misunderstood
Sick of being ignored, we wallowin'[?] out in the hood
And I respect it if you venting your rage
But I'ma focus now on trying a change

[Chorus]
We been held back from the beginning
System organized to keep us from winning
You can tell a moment when you're in it
I'm in it and I'm tryna do something with it

Do something with it  
  Wake up!
Do something with it  
  Wake up!
Do something with it  
  Wake up!
Do something with it  
  Wake up!

Nothing was given to us so we gon' go get it
Winning don't matter if you don't do something with it


[Verse 2]
I know you mad, family, I am right there with you
But I am looking at the bigger picture
Ain't picture perfect but I'm pulling out the paint
Tryna put a little colour where it ain't
Feel me?
They say I'm young but I'm old enough to know
That the world ain't the world that I thought it would be fro
And it ain't all bad luck when they weighted the dice you rolling
But you can't win any hands without playing the cards you holding
Feel me?
You used to say burn it down but what changed with that? Maybe we[?]
Lay bricks down every day, just paving the way we[?]
We gotta learn to love the baby steps so maybe
We can make a better world for our babies

[Segue]
And it's time to go to work

[Hook]
Go to work!
Go to work!
Go to work!
Go to work!
Yeah I know you might be tired and I know you might be hurtin'
If you put nothin' in you gon' get nothin' out
Cause this beast we are fighting gotta great big mouth
Go to work!
Go to work
Go to work!
Go to work!
Yeah I know you might be tired and I know you might be hurtin'
Already tried talkin', already tried to shout
Now it's time to go to work and show this beast what we about
Yay!


[Chorus]
We been held back from the beginning
System organized to keep us from winning
You can recognize a moment when you're in it
I'm in it and I'm tryna do something with it

Do something with it  
  Wake up!
Do something with it  
  Wake up!
Do something with it  
  Wake up!
Do something with it  
  Wake up!

Nothing was given to us so we gon' go get it
Winning don't matter if you don't ---

[Outro]
Do something with it
Do something with it
Do something with it
Do something with it

Do something with it  
  Wake up!
Do something with it  
  Wake up!
Do something with it  
  Wake up!
Do something with it  
  Wake up!
Do something with it  
Hey Wake up!
Do something with it  
Hey Wake up!
Do something with it  
Hey Wake up!
Do something with it  
Hey Wake up!

Nothing was given to us so we gon' go get it
Winning don't matter if you don't do something with it
