lyrics

It's bad news, everywhere ya look,
Seems like everybody you elect, elects to be a crook.
Selectin' making some bucks over taking care of the stuff,
That they swear they gonna cherish 'fore they're sweared in as a judge,

Mayor or politician they all caught in a system
The time honoured tradition of the rich gettin' richer while pitching,
The rest of us this vision of God clean honest living,
At least until they audited or caught on camera bingin',

Man I'm through with bitchin', but what you can do but mention,
The fact that fat cats passin' laws that limit expression,
They try to control opinions and turn men into minions,
and don't even get me started on objectifying women.

Now not that I'm perfect but don't you think we deservin',
More out of our civil servants than me spittin' verses,
They payin' lip service to, living with purpose,
But if you only playing words you sayin' are worthless.

It's really not that bad,
Look on the bright side
In the light up there's a silver lining.
Oh it's so pretty, oh it's so pretty
when the lights shine on your back.

It's bad news, but with the silver lining,
That honestly this time they gone too far to keep compliance.
From all these bees that's dying, to keeping people applying,
For bail when they be non violent to sayin' not speak your mind, and
Share with your peers online, wake up, these are the times,
Get with it or admit it, you obsolete past your prime,
I'd say last of your kind, but that would be a lie,
Cause there always gonna be some leeches somewhere down the line.
But as for now I'm fine with failure of politicians,
To regulate resources, corporations forced submission,
To the point where how we're livin' directly affectin' children,
From crippling debt we give em, to crazy climate conditions.
It's bad news but the good news is that crises lead to change,
The catastrophe of apathy's the worst up in the game,
Cause when you don't feel the pain then ain't nothing gon' change,
But when shit done gets this frigged up then nothing stayin' the same,
so its,

It's really not that bad,
Look on the bright side
In the light up there's a silver lining.
Oh it's so pretty, oh it's so pretty
when the lights shine on your back.

Ooh it's not so bad,
It's not so bad,
It's not so bad.

Oh it's not so bad,
Look on the bright side
In the light up there's a silver lining.
Oh it's so pretty, oh it's so pretty
when the lights shine on your back.

Mmm it's not so bad,
It's not so bad,
It's not so bad.

about

The New Groovement

The New Groovement is funk band that seemlessly blends R&B, soul, and hip hop to create a funk-i-fied feast for the ears. If Jamiroquai had the soul of Aretha Franklin or The Roots had the energy of Sharon Jones, then you'd have The New Groovement. Local TV and radio have dubbed the sound as "the epitome of live music," and "a super-band." ... more
