With Some Of Us Blessed

The first thing that I learned
Everything in life is earned
But some can earn more and some can earn less
The second thing that I learned
Is life’s strange twists and turns
Can sometimes affect even the best

With some of us blessed
And some of us cursed
We’re always aware
Of how much we’re worth —

And what we are to the world
And what we are to the sky
So just sit up straight and open up your eyes!

And why are some born
If it’s just to be poor
To be dregs in this world
To be pimped to be whored

With some of us blessed
And some of us cursed
We’re always aware
Of how much we’re worth, how much we’re worth!

Some of us are blessed
And some of us are cursed
Hoping for a place
Where the rules of this world are reversed
