Perspective lyrics

[Verse 1 - Blueprint]
Ten girls stapped on a collage campus
Twenty school-kids gunned down in Sandy Hook
A black teenager is murdered over skin color
It feel like the chaos is everywhere you look
Thirty afghans killed at a family wedding
Sixty Iraki killed trying to vote
A woman gets gang-raped down in India
Five kids' lifes get ended by a drone
I don't care if you living in a high-rise
You're no different from a man in a hut
Every single life is sacred in God's eyes
You ain't worth more cause you got more stuff
I don't care what the color of your skin is
I don't care 'bout your fortune and fame
I just want for us to have more perspective
And understand that everybody's pain is the same
Bird's eye view
It's beautiful up here

[Verse 2 - Blueprint]
Understand that the empathy for all others
Appreciation as a have or a have-not
Recognize that people's worth is decided
By the content of character, and not what they got
I get upset cause it seem so hard for us
When we lie to ourselves we sound so crazy
We tell ourselves that they don't work as hard as us
They could be like us if they just weren't lazy
I think it's just an excuse
That allow us to treat them as less human
Cause once we begin to take it as the truth
It justifies all the evil things that we do to them
Some people work hard and barely stray by
Others work hard and end up rich
It doesn't mean you shouldn't celebrate success
But understand the systematic hurdles that exist
Bird's eye view
It's beautiful up here, might shed a tear

[Verse 3 - Blueprint]
A man with no shoes stands on a corner
Sad about his circumstance of being on the street
Then realize it weren't that bad
When he was joined by another man that had no feet
A woman makes a post on facebook
About how she and her brother got beef
Unaware it was read by a friend of hers
Who's own brother passed away just last week
Boston get's hit by a dirty bomb
Hundred people injured, three people died
Rare for us but for many that's the norm
The daily threat of an attack is part of their lives
I ain't sayin' what we feel ain't real
But understand just what it means to be privileged
That's when you ignore the circumstances of those
Less fortunate then you, that you don't have to live in
Bird's eye view
It's beautiful up here, might shed a tear
