lyrics

Try to keep it positive and play it cool…

Keep it positive, don’t give in to the nihilism
Beat the Mobb Deep pessimism with the primal rhythm
When I'm tellin' a story it's so epic
I get my positivity from De La Soul records
But art-official intelligence wont save us
The stakes is high for today’s civilizations
Stuck in an ego-trippin’ balloon mind-state
The ocean’s about to be three feet high and rising
It’s time for a grind date, say no go
We gotta get that baby fat under control
And it starts with me, myself, and I reduce emissions
Where I can in this dog-eat-dog competition
So the kids don’t face a stone age instead
Of a daisy age after De La Soul is dead
But De La Soul is still alive
So there's still time for humanity to survive
