    I just wanna say
    welcome to the part of the show
    where the base drum hits hard and slow
    your face becomes aware that Im starting to flow
    and it sounds like a song that you already know
    you might have heard it at 11th and Fillmore
    A sort biggish building with a littlish a billboard but
    Whats everybody staying still 4,
    3,2,1 If youre happy, Gillmore
    then act like youre knowing it clap
    And move like youre in a kayak and youre rowing it
    And if you dont wanna clap then snap
    Whatever floats your boat just go with it
    Cause Im hoping thisll get you open
    Its a bit of spoken word a little joking heard hear and there
    Lemme clear the air
    This is not a competitionLord, hear my prayer
    So if anybody listening is feeling scared
    We wanna make your spirit aware that
    You are not alone
    You are not alone
    You are (you are) not alone
    You dont have to do this on your own
    One Love Agape One Love Agape
    Solo(w) it can feel like were coming apart
    Together were much more than the sum of our parts
    One Love Agape One love Agape
    Some of out parts are just about busting
    Some of our parts are rusty but these
    Lips voice sentiments begun in our hearts and
    Heal wounds with the songs that are sung in the dark
    So if youre feeling like a Pimp take a moment just to hold it off
    My role model will not only brush ya shoulders off
    But wash your feet, give his life as the soldiers watch
    And forgive his torturers below the cross
    So when youre slapped and youre told to fight back
    And they taunt you over the phone to incite smack
    Get back! Get back in the zone despite that
    And rely on the strength that the bonified have
    But if you act like you know me like that
    Call me cheesy like macaroni I might snap snap
    But only like that and get on the microphone and recite raps
    You are not alone
    You dont have to do this on your own
    You wont have to prove yourself to get through this
    Dont have to lose yourself to this music
    In fact you might find yourself
    In a room full of strangers trying to help
    In a flashback to the last time you felt
    The presence of something divine well, this is
    Hip-hop its not just for profit anymore never was
    Its too easy to live your life waiting for change to arrive if it ever does
    It will come from a source thats infinite, not from a middle man
    You cant measure its force but youve got a sense of it, and its bigger than
    Hip-hopits larger than life/death.much greater than us/them..
    Everybody One love/agapeCHORUS
