(16) (Chorus) (Antonia Marquee) Do you hear me? Tell me do you hear me I’m in need of purity There’s nothing pure for me to drink Why you tryin’ to own the water? Who do you think you are? You better give us what we deserve We need it as pure as our hearts (Verse 2) (Talilo Marfil) knees weak arms heavy they say they care about us, but they don’t just cuz I’m poor don’t mean that I’m not ready to give my body to greater good of yours, of course a war is breaking out so... i see the drought through the windows but it stained with the pain of the chains that have stayed even tho back in the day they was broke i wrote and put my broken soul into the ink of the pen paint a picture of this vision, the Picasso of men i see a throne built on power and the greed at the head of its sheep, is a wolf in its skin in the middle riddle civilians belittled by the mighty men that are witful that says, your basic needs aren’t fitfull to grip a pistol your water contaminated your race is not superior you don’t know your history we flippin this pyramid (Bridge) purify, purify me in my reach, swear that I got it life that i thirst, death surrounds my whole body as I open the bottle, I aint finding no water purify, purify me i can’t believe what I’m seeing i been trying 't find a reason why my family is bleeding in a land full of water but can’t drink it (Chorus) (Bridge) (Quincy Davis) purify me need to find a way to live for my seed m’ni wichoni, water of life so holy, sacred what will it take us... to remember, never take it for granite tell me what they search for when they look at the planets yeah, water is life to grow the seed into the trees we need the trees to breathe
