Verse 1

It was war, it was war

About a week ago

They shot my man

I was with him about a week ago

In my city round the city we should stop that

Keep losing trying to win with the get back

Don’t you see, don’t see where that gets us

Who's cooler?

There's a body

There's a shooter

There's a man without a future

Now his homies out to get ya

And the cycle just continues

If we only just remember

 

Hook

That We stronger together

We was made here to give

We was made here to love

We was made here to live  (2x)

 

Now get ya money

Get success

And live a good life

Need to put the guns down

And get ya mind right (2x)

 

Now won’t you make something…

Make, make peace

Won’t you make something of yourself

Make peace

Won’t you make something…

Make, make peace

Won’t you make something of yourself

Make __________

 

Verse 2

Revenge ain't sweet

Not when you gotta watch ya back

And you just can't sleep

It's a lot of other things that you just could be

A Better man

A Better woman

Better human being

Instead of building one another

We killing up all our brothers

Consoling them crying mothers

They got us in front of judges

They got us in orange jumpers

Cuff us and put us under

This ain't the life for none of us

We need every one of us

                                                            (Over)

Hook

We stronger together

We was made here to give

We was made here to love

We was made here to live (2x)

 

Now get ya money

Get success

And live a good life

Need to put the guns down

And get ya mind right (2x)

 

Now won’t you make something…

Make, make peace

Make something of yourself

Make ________

Won’t you make something of….

Make, make peace

Won’t you make something of yourself

And make peace

 

Bridge

 

Put aside all your pride

Try to focus on right

When you go eye for eye

Then we all end up blind

We were put here to fly

We were put here to shine (2x)

 

Hook

 

Now won’t you make something of yourself

Make, make peace

Make something of yourself

Make, make _____

Won’t you make something of yourself

Make, make peace

Won’t you make something of yourself

And make peace

 

We stronger together

We was made here to give

We was made here to love

We was made here to live  (2x)

 

Now get ya money

Get success

And live a good life

Need to put the guns down

And get ya mind right (2x)

 

Make something of yourself

Make, make, make something of yourself

Won’t you make something of yourself

And make peace
