    Lyrics: Medicine for the People – Risk it

    Every cell is transforming and returning to original concepts to construct
    And then I started to shapeshift… and the animals within me grew tails and the talons
    I hitched a ride on the back of a whale, to the darkest of the ocean and ate off the bottom
    And then I traveled dimensions… in the places I rode upon elephants and zebras…

    Elephants and zebras…

    Well I dreamed of my future big time, yeah
    What it would be like to always have clean water
    And if you left the trees standing…and they filtered the air and we breathed it in deeply
    Well I traveled across Native America and saw the sickness taking form in all the small children
    Well if I could give you my people, yeah, well a piece of my peace will be with you always…
    If I could give you my people, yeah, well a piece of my peace will be with you always…

    Be with you always…

    I never thought I needed medicine but I was spiritually dying, I needed some healing, so I opened my mouth and took a dose of the music
    Then I stopped and prayed for guidance now teach me to use it
    I prayed for guidance yeah teach me to use it
    I prayed for guidance now give me the music

    And it definitely matters how you look at it and it definitely matters how you look at it
    So if you think you can risk it, well, what an opportunity to be free of it
    Well if you think you can risk it, well, what an opportunity to be free of it

    I heard, I heard yeah the wild horses were blazing trails through uncertain territory
    I run as fast as the cheetah is… and I catch a ride on the back of the great and mighty Condor
    And then I took my place in the choir, was singing the songs of freedom and progress
    And we’re delivering the babies yeah, and we’re birthing up the next generation
    Said we’re delivering the babies yeah, and we’re birthing up the next generation

    I never thought I needed medicine but I was spiritually dying, I needed some healing, so I opened my mouth and took a dose of the music
    Then I stopped and prayed for guidance yeah teach me to use it
    I prayed for guidance now teach me to use it
    I prayed for guidance now give me the music

    And it definitely matters how you look at it and it definitely matters how you look at it
    So if you think you can risk it, well, what an opportunity to be free of it
    Well if you think you can risk it, well, what an opportunity to be free of it

    Every cell is transforming and we turn into original concepts to construct
    And then I started to shapeshift… and the animals within me grew tails and the talons
    I hitched a ride on the back of a whale, to the darkest of the ocean and ate off the bottom
    And then I traveled dimensions… in the places I rode upon elephants and zebras…

    Elephants and zebras….

    Well I dreamed of my future big time, yeah
    What it would be like to always have clean water
    And if you left the trees standing…and they filtered the air and we breathed it in deeply
    So I traveled across Native America and saw the sickness taking form in all the small children
    Well if I could give you my people, yeah, well a piece of my peace will be with you always…
    If I could give you my people, yeah, well a piece of my peace will be with you always…

    Be with you always…
    Be with you always…

      Sometimes people enter your life, and are able to change little things about your thoughts, perhaps even your beliefs. For my husband and I, all of you are our friends. You all have energized our thought process, through your music and really made us look at life- with our children, our parents, friends, non-friends, and Mother Earth- with an entirely different perspective. As if we are breathing in life, for the first time.

      Mad Respect,
      Sarah

      Sorry, I was so quick to think this was a different web page. When I saw the lyrics to MFTP- Risk It- I thought it was their website, oops ;)

      Isn’t the lyric “It definitely matters how you look at it” and no “it never really matters how you look at it?” that’s a very different message! because it definitely does… matter… how you look at it!

      I LOVE YOU, MEDICINE FOR THE PEOPLE BROTHERS & SISTERS!

      what an opportunity to be free!

      The chorus says

      “if you think you can risk it well, what an opportunity to be free of it”

      Im sure its just an honest mistake but several of these lyrics have been changed and kind promotes the exact opposite idea so I took some time to ensure clarity. Thanks!

      Love these guys! Can’t believe they haven’t hit mainstream yet but I’m happy to keep them to myself for a bit!
