"...The things I'm seein' on the news is insane,
A stock broker shoots his kid and throws himself in front of a train,
A mother leaves her baby home for two weeks all by himself,
Three years old, eatin' ketchup and mustard, cryin' for help,
I try to bring the struggle to light,
But labels want a song about a bubbly life,
I have trouble tryin' to write,
Some sh*t to bang in the club through the night,
When people suffer tonight,
Lord knows I try..."
-Talib Kweli, "I Try"
