This track was written with the mission of the organization, Planting Justice in mind. It centers around urban food issues and tries to bring light to the plight of people without food sovereignty.

lyrics

A hand reaches out asking for a bite to eat, you ever been feeling the pain while you're trying to sleep, the land is trying to grow but there's something wrong, man is harvesting more but enough has gone to waste, fraud, and abuse, the truth of the IMF, you get a little bit of money just for trying death, petro, agro, capitalistic, that seed will only grow if you got money to spritz it with round-up ready, or ain't no seed sowing, years later now we wonder where the bees going, G-M-O, we got a mono crop food system, man we dying just to get some nutrition, look, corporations aim to make us think we need a store, when mama nature gives us all we'd ever what and more, a billion people tonight who should be eating more, dog they just trying to feed the war not the poor

(Chorus)
We gotta plant some justice, grow some seeds, dig in the earth for our groceries, we gotta promote the culture for those in need, cause the world's got folks to feed (x2)

Walking through the hood seeing all the vacant lots, up in my head thinking we should scheme to make a plot, grow a crop for the block, we'll be full soon, now the little kiddies doing good in the school room, a hand reaches out asking you to show him how he can touch the earth so that he can feed his people now, take his hands out the cuffs, put'em in the ground, steal him back from the Man, get him back to his land, man we fighting it just for the space, right!? to plan a seed so tat we can get a safe bite, food organically grown so it tastes right, now food deserts growing faster than a race stripe, the lake levels getting lower than my waist hieght, world hunger's growing higher than a space flight, a revolution now, growing in their face might be the thing to set the place right for the light

(Chorus)
We gotta plant some justice, grow some seeds, dig in the earth for our groceries, we gotta promote the culture for those in need, cause the world's got folks to feed
We gotta plant some justice, grow some seeds, legalize hemp, decriminalize weed, we gotta promote the culture for those in need, cause the world's got folks to feed
