INTRO
Preach x8

VERSE 1
Grown men havin' bandana colour fights
recruiting kids to kill in the night
don't talk to a cop, but killings 'aight
black on black tragedy, let's cite the white
I preach to help cease and hope for peace
of this race blame game, don't let the trigger release
but at times there's a need for holsters emptied by police
the media should stop portraying every victim as golden fleece
as angels, who wouldn't, melt butter, in their mouth
just enrages, the people, to purchase guns from the shelves
I've cursed out Zimmerman because he went looking for it
and because there was enough evidence
to put him away and get beaten up in jail
till he is old, appearing pale and frail
a preacher I am, tell it like it fucking is
preach until there's less kids killing kids

CHORUS
Yeah I preach, cause there's so much to preach about
Yeah I preach, cause there's so much to preach about
[preach]
[preach]
I, preach......
x2

VERSE 2
Social conventions, some be a strange dimension
monkey see monkey do, I've got my apprehensions
I find it amazing the flock of sheep to caffeine
we go without it, then all of a sudden, it becomes our vaccine
to look like a somebody, sipping as we go
not to mention alcohol a fad with a quick tempo
people pouring money down their throat, we must grow
from all this bullshit, it's just one big show
need drugs to wake up? go to sleep 30 minutes earlier
all this inane garbage not be surlier
what example are we setting, dare I even touch on the betting
families ruined, the stories I hear are upsetting
pro sports clubs earning millions from addiction
pokies, gambling, we need some more restrictions
a preacher I am, tell it like it fucking is
preach until there's less kids having kids

CHORUS

VERSE 3
Then there's phones, been a problem the last decade or two
an addiction to some, line up at midnight, in a queue
cause a few to be hit, or, have a close call
walking with them through traffic, worried about an install
causes neck pain in the youth, eye problems in the young
it's so dumb, these addicts, neglecting their lungs
gotta get these thoughts in the air, off my chest
vent my spleen, pray for some of these to be addressed
the loud on public transport, shut the fuck up
take the call at your next stop, and shut the fuck up
talking during a film, shut the fuck up
feel like pulling it out and telling innocents to duck
this be a P.S.A., telling you to stop acting like a pup
you're not the only one on Earth and that's what's sup
a preacher I am, tell it like it fucking is
preach until there's less kids, snorting Wizz Fizz

CHORUS

[Preach]
I preach

about

Joe March Australia

I'm passionate about music and have been making it for a minute. I mainly create conscious hip hop where I can vent by putting my opinions down on 'wax'. Many other songs are tracks about the fairer sex.
