C
Well this is real talk
              C7
This is non stop
        F              C      G
It is looped now tongue and mind.
                   C
Played off the sidewalk,
                    C7
straight to your boombox,
          F                 C   G
how it travels from ear to memory.
                C
Well this is medicine,
             C7
there's a message within,
        F              G              C
and each will find it in their own time

Riff

 C                      C7
well this is music, this is how I use it
        F               C       G
It makes you move and move the movements
                C                       C7
this is how I focus, knowing it's not hopeless
        F                       C       G
but it sure starts with me and ends on a whole note
        C               C7
musical medicine, this is my healing
        F                       G       C
for past and present future things to come
        
Riff 

C                       C7
I see people stressin' over space and possessions
        F                       C               G
out of fear and a need for visual aids of our abundance
        C               C7
give me examples or something tangible
                F                       C       G
something I can get my hands on and find real meaning
                C               C7
where is the medicine? well I've been searching
        F                       G       C
and I suppose each will find their own kind

Riff

C                               C7
well everything's at stake, it makes it hard to concentrate
                F                       C       G
and there are men who see a war and see a paycheck
        C                       C7
Such different programming, to live so fearfully
                F               C       G
terror this and terror that terrible reality
                C               C7
there is no medicine on the television
        F                       G   C
so turn it off and turn yourself around

Riff

C                       C7
and let's just face it, the world's fuckin' racist
                F                       C       G
even the most peaceful of us gets caught in the trend
        C               C7
to live cohesively is almost a fantasy
                F                       C       G
and we ought to know it starts with humbling our egos
                C               C7
what is the medicine for cultural woundin'?
                F               G    C
has it's moments has it's melodies has it's time

Riff


C
Well I was listening,
                  C7
to the outgoing season
         F                            C  G
about climate change and some of the reasons,
                C                     C7
when the sky opened, like I'd been hope'n
                  F            C -  G
and there came horses by the thousands
                 C
and there was thunder on their tongues
       C7
and lightning on their minds
            F                G
and they singing this old melody
        
 C
from some other time
            F     G        C  C\B  Am
They sang don't waste your H - at  - e.
          F    G   C   C\B   Am
Rather gather and  cr - ea  - te
        F                     G
Be a service, be a sensible person.
           C        C\B        Am
Use your words and don't be nervous.
         F        G           C
You can do this you've got purpose.
  F            G       C
Find your medicine and use it.

            F     G        C  C\B  Am
They sang don't waste your H - at  - e.
          F    G   C  C\B  Am
Rather gather and cr - ea  - te
        F                     G
Be a service, be a sensible person.
           C        C\B        Am
Use your words and don't be nervous.
         F        G           C
You can do this you've got purpose.
  F            G       C
Find your medicine and use it.
