My last name is the Universe

 

univers

Oh! Yeh angelic forces that dwell in the blessed star

Of our God and our Allah and our Buddha and our

Krishna and our Modimo, and Utixo and the deities

that are as multitudinous as the desert sand;

Send down to this planet earth a message of peace and tranquility to combat the evil force of destruction that

threatens to send all of Gods seven days creative impulse

into the doldrums of dooms day;

 

Send down your rays to this planet earth and I will instill self reliance

to a million souls to utilize their own potential and rise

against the tide of false hope of a brighter future from

politicians who promise a pie in the sky

While a cry of a million live in a stream of poverty

That can only be alleviated by your own latent power

To be a humane change agent of changing the world

until all our last name be celebrated in the universe

as a community of people who rapped and produced a better life for all

into the doldrums of dooms day;

 

Send down your rays to this planet earth and I will instill self-reliance

to a million souls to utilize their own potential and rise

against the tide of false hope of a brighter future from

politicians who promise a pie in the sky

While a cry of a million live in a stream of poverty

That can only be alleviated by your own latent power

To be a humane change agent of changing the world

until all our last name be celebrated in the universe .
