You've got the power to influence the masses;
You've got the power to make change.
You've got the power to make a difference in someone's life,
So don't underestimate the power of your words.
Someone is always listening;
You've got to be responsible for what you put out there.
People are looking up to you.
They admire you,
Want to be just like you.
So encourage them,
'Cause if anyone's gotta take it to the street,
It better be for a damn good reason.
Set an example,
And never underestimate the power of your words.
