Of Course You Can Lyrics

Ya know, one day the indigenous people of the Earth
Are gonna reclaim, what?s rightfully theirs
Really?

Well, lose your mind, misplace your mind
Forgot you even had a mind
?Cause someone told you it?s impossible
To change your mind

A friend of mine made it to twenty-five
We had a celebration, man, I?m glad that you?re alive
I?m happy to see, my man you?re beatin? the odds
And for this on this day we give thanks to the gods

?Cause everyone deserves a shot except you only get one
I hope it?s not through the head my son
But life is short when you?re afraid to cry
Life is hard when you?re afraid to die

But when I feel alone, I sing myself a song
Because wherever I lay a groove is my home

But can you see me in the desert?
Of course you can
Can you see me on the mountain?
Of course you can

Can you see me in the ocean?
Of course you can
I?m just splishin?, splashin?
Jumpin? in the sand

But can you see me in the desert?
Of course you can
Can you see me on the mountain?
Of course you can

Can you see me in the ocean?
Of course you can
I?m just splishin?, splashin?
Jumpin? in the sand

But he remembered memories of walkin? through the puddles
Sayin? gee dad, am I the one who?s wanted by
The federal government doesn?t want me to go to school
I ask too many questions and I don?t play by their rules

In school they tried to tell me that a rock is not alive
But I have seen a volcano growin? up and die
In school they tried to tell me that a tree it couldn?t feel
But I have felt a tree and it was bleedin' for real

In school they tried to tell me animals couldn?t talk
But they can understand it when a dog starts to bark
In school they tried to tell me, man doesn?t have a soul
What happened to his? I say 'cause mine is still whole

But can you see me in the desert?
Of course you can
Can you see me on the mountain?
Of course you can

Can you see me in the ocean?
Of course you can
I?m just splishin?, splashin?
Jumpin? in the sand

But can you see me in the desert?
Of course you can
Can you see me on the mountain?
Of course you can

Can you see me in the ocean?
Of course you can
I?m just splishin?, splashin?
Jumpin? in the sand

Can you see me?
Can you see me?
Can you see me?
Can you see me?

I have the reoccurring dream of a life?s imprisonment
The reoccurring scream of a world and it?s residents
The reoccurring theme of a mind full of finger prints
The reoccurring dream of a knife and a president

Well, would you like to look at Madonna?s book on sex?
Or would you rather Alex Haley?s book on Malcolm X?
Their f**kin? with ice tea but they don?t even care if
Eric Clapton?s singin?, "I Shot The Sheriff"

But how many more books on this subject can I read?
And how many more frustrations must I try to ease?
And how many more days of this bad air can I breathe?
And how many more of my friends must just die and leave?

But you can?t diffuse the ticking time bomb
You can?t refuse the time it has come
You can?t erase our people from the nation
I?ll take a life before they call us 'The Lost Generation'

But can you see us in the desert?
Of course you can
Can you see us on the mountain?
Of course you can

Can you see us in the ocean?
Of course you can
We're just splishin?, splashin?
Jumpin? in the sand

But can you see us in the desert?
Of course you can
Can you see us on the mountain?
Of course you can

Can you see us in the ocean?
Of course you can
We're just splishin?, splashin?
Jumpin? in the sand

But can you see me in Africa?
Of course you can
Can you see us in Asia?
Of course you can

Can you see us in Australia?
Of course you can
Aotearoa? Western Samoa? Eskimoa?

Can you see us in the White House?
No you can?t
Can you see us on the radio?
Hell no

Can you see me with the police
In handcuffs?
Splishin?, splashin?
Jumpin? in the sand
