gabriel commissaris – arts integrated lyrics

Loading...

[intro: gabe]
its time we attain value from our education
let art be the catalyst for this new creation
a system that teaches the youth on the streets aspiration
and shuts off the pipeline to m-ss incarceration
return culture to the curriculum through artistic expression
end the repression with rhythmic comprehension
consolidate -n-lysis and creativity into this equation
hip hop shall be the salvation for the next generation

[verse 1: gabe]
reasoning and intuition are about to collide
left brain right brain thinking combined
modern education about to be redefined
through an art form that’s constantly vilified
hip-hop a way of expressing yourself honestly
the people’s voice against inequality
preaching important values through positivity
encouraging change in our society
through the use of five elements
were proliferating academic achievements
literacy through creativity coming alive
self confidence in one’s voice is what we gotta revive
teaching kids to question everything they’re told
to chase knowledge of self rather than gold
so let our education flow like a game of chess
thinking outside the box is the key to success

[verse 1: big murph]
we done fought tooth and nail
you can bet we ain’t gonna be letting the youth fail
no more just talking that ship has sailed
got a plan on track won’t be derailed
can’t spell smart without a-r-t
knowledge is here to start the party
give me a soul clap and bounce to the groove
of straight a’s and honor rolls making you move
taking it back to the old school cuz i’m an old soul don’t need an ipad
to stimulate the brain, cause i could spend all day practicing piano playing minor triads
and writing haikus and free verse poetry
hopefully somebody is noticing
that these programs are making a difference, if you don’t know now i suggest you listen

[hook: gabe and big murph]
“fusing logic and art to unite the mind and heart”
(mind and heart) that is a pair you’ll never find apart
utilizing both parts of the brain
not to entertain but to ensure everyone has something to gain
arts integrated education that’s what we’re bringing
3 positives 1 negative that’s what we’re spitting
revolutionizing the way that we learn
the thirst for answers has made a return

[verse 2: gabe]
set to fail by no child left behind
domination of the left side while keeping kids blind
to the sk!lls that they need to survive
how else these private businesses able to thrive
designed for the success of only certain individuals
while the rest are cast down to a life in shackles
let the music free the body and mind from these chains
so they won’t be slaves to these games

[verse 2: big murph]
neurons firing, endorphins rising
i’m a real deep thinker, should it come as surprising?
in the cl-ssroom inspiring, to help these kids go beyond what the school is requiring
do more than bubble in on the standardized test
let your voice and ambition exhibit your brightness
if they got a horn to play or a brush to paint with
i bet that’ll relieve frustration and anguish

[verse 2: gabe]
no more of this common core fallacy negating the methods in which we educate
this culturally biased curriculum leaving the minds of youth in a wretched state
but through the conversion of art we can create a better fate for the young minds at stake
making the right moves in life is key to avoiding checkmate
make solidarity your policy
and poetry your philosophy
spoken word teaches the true history
and how to survive in the work industry
if you wanna make your dreams a reality
then sign up for rap force academy(2x)

[hook: gabe and big murph]
“fusing logic and art to unite the mind and heart”
(mind and heart) that is a pair you’ll never find apart
utilizing both parts of the brain
not to entertain but to ensure everyone has something to gain
arts integrated education that’s what we’re bringing
3 positives 1 negative that’s what we’re spitting
revolutionizing the way that we learn
the thirst for answers has made a return

[outro: gabe]
bringing you progress
through hip hop congress
americas number 1 education
hip hop chess federation
