In such a time of change in the world and the rise of the voice of the individual - this could easily be an anthem. a rare, positive call to action and empowerment that also happens to be a great song. "Work your plan incessantly, Knowledge is your weaponry" and many other lines could all be their own t-shirts and will bounce around in my head for some time.

Lyrics

[Javier Starks - Verse 1]
Yo
I do what I feel I should
Not what they say or what they would
I would live in this moment forever
But only if time was able to stand still I could
But then again maybe not
(Why?)
Because over the years I changed a lot
Lived in a house of shame, matter of fact
Tried to take me back but I changed the locks
Can't make the same mistakes twice
Life's too short (Yeah, I know that's right)
Paid my dues (Yeah, I know that price, had to earn my keep)
But I love my life
Ain't got no problem with grinding
Through the trials till I triumph I'm tired of being in this place
I'm a write 'till my wrist breaks
'Till I die and I escape
'Till then I'm going to hold my own
Play my part in the role I chose
Giving my max, it'll show I've grown
When I look back say I never sold my soul
No sir!

[G.P. Jackson - Chorus]
This is your moment
You've gotta shine
Time's of the essence
You've gotta find
Inspiration
Determination
To face creation
To change the nation

[G.P. Jackson - Verse 2]
I've spent so much time in life
Keeping myself from taking flight
Not allowing my light to shine bright
(to shine bright)
But this moment changes things
No more do I live attached to strings
Today I stand
I sing
I shout

[G.P. Jackson - Chorus]
This is your moment
You've gotta shine
Time's of the essence
You've gotta find
Inspiration
Determination
To face creation
To change the nation

[Bomani Armah - Verse 3]
No time to play around
Run wild
Check your hourglass
Check your sundial
Ask the Mayans
Check the Zodiac
It's slipping away, it ain't no time for holding back
Time don't stop
Every tick, every tock that rolls off the clock
Is all that you've got before you're underground
You better work your plot
Dreams differed just dry up and rot
This is your recipe
To fulfill your destiny
Work your plan incessantly
Knowledge is your weaponry
Choose your friends carefully
Plan your path cleverly
You'll live life so heavenly
With no regrets at 70

[G.P. Jackson - Chorus]
This is your moment
You've gotta shine
Time's of the essence
You've gotta find
Inspiration
Determination
To face creation
To change the nation

[Javier Starks - Verse 4]
Yeah!
Take chances
Go against the odds
Stay dreaming
Carpe Diem
Live each with a passion
(Passion)
Shine even when the stars ain't gleaming
Be the best you can be
Best of the best
No regrets, never less succeed
Express yourself
Wish the best of luck to the rest and spread your wings
Nothing can stop you, not you, you are too strong
Can't fall because you've got to move on
Now they're calling your name and this may never happen again
Living your dreams, passion and pain
Laugh when they say you won't make it
Hating, not fly like crashing a plane
Guess they never won one
Destiny, you should never run from
Because the sun comes after the rain

[G.P. Jackson - Chorus]
This is your moment
You've gotta shine
Time's of the essence
You've gotta find
Inspiration
Determination
To face creation
To change the nation
