All music and vocals written, arranged, produced and performed by Stoneman

There’s Jena 6 in every city and state, a system can’t be just when its based on race
Boys becoming men behind prison gates, when they get set free its a bit too late
Over in Iraq everyday folks die, killing is the norm and we don’t know why
Mothers here and there bow there heads and cry , war is truly hell cause it is what it is
Hurricanes and earthquakes Tsunamis, floods and fires
Scientists are warning us but others say their liars
Toys are on the recall cause China paints with lead
Businesses keep selling them till someone’s kid is dead
Billions and billions all go to death and war, Presidents deny tell more lies and ignore
Millions of our children are denied health care but we can’t overide cause it is what it is what

thuggism, it is what it is, liberalism, it is what it is, Welfare, it is what it is, crime, it is what it is, anger, it is what it is, illiteracy, it is what it is, violence, yes it is what it is don’t blame it all on Blacks cause it is what it is what

In the hood a war rages on each day, bullets start to fly cause them boys don’t play
Priests in the church stop and kneel to pray, some molest your children while proclaiming faith
Politicians lie just to get our votes, People can’t survive cause of bills they wrote
The rich and getting richer every hour of the day but don’t even complain cause it is what it is what
You can’t be a patriot if you protest the war, you can’t be a Christian if you like a man like Gore.
Torturing our prisoners without a trials ok, Terrorists don’t have no rights at least that’s what we say.
Abortion is a sin to the Christian right, But executing convicts to them is alright
The hypocrits all stand on the left and right and we all have to choose
Cause it is what it is what


Injustice, it is what it is, genocide, it is what it is, corruption, it is what it is, bigotry, it is what it is, addiction, it is what it is, racism, it is what it is, intolerance, yes it is what it is
Don’t blame it all on Whites cause it is what it is what

The truth will set you free the truth can’t be concealed can’t you understand what’s real is really really yeah
So many try to hide realities of life yeah, but what gets done in the dark soon must come to light
Cause it is what it is

Child Abuse, it is what it is. Hypocrisy, it is what it is, disaster, it is what it is. poverty it is what it is. hopelessness it is what it is, disease it is what it is, judgment, yes it is what it is
Don’t blame it all on God cause it is what it is what

Loyalty, it is what it is. Pure Faith, it is what it is, Humility, it is what it is. Love and Kindness, it is what it is. Tolerance, it is what it is, charity, it is what it is. Sobriety, it is what it is
Don’t claim there is no good cause it is what it is what




Song Comments

Out Tha Box Sound System
I had to add this song for two reasons: One: My home is only a few miles from Jena, I know first hand of how ignorant people can be. Two: IT IS WHAT IT IS.


BjustB - Sounds that move me
It is what it is ... and because it is what it is it made BjustB's keepers ... cuz Stoneman is tellin it like it is cuz It Is What It Is and BjustB don't bother with mindless hip hop no matter how hot the beat is ... If what you're rapping about ain't about nothing but nothing what's good is it? It ain't worth nothing, even if it does fill ya pockets with money.
