Written by Michael with Edward Riley, Claues Forbes, Roy Hamilton, Samuel Hoskins and Carmen Lampson, song originally scheduled to feature on Michael's Invincible album in 2001, before it was replaced by You Are My Life.
It was included on the B-side of Cry, released in December 2001 in the UK (no USA release), and listed ahead of Cry and Streetwalker on the 12" single.
Version reportedly recorded by Backstreet boy, Nick Carter, for his
debut solo album NOW OR NEVER in 2002, but failed to make the
final selection. Bootleg versions of the Backstreet Boys performing the
song in concert have appeared on the internet.
Sampled by independent artist, Kameko, on Down And Out – a track
featured on his debut album, issued in 2006.
- based on the Teddy Riley beat of the song 'Do It' by Guy 
Shout - Lyrics
Ignorance of people purchasing diamonds and necklaces,
And barely able to keep the payments up on their lessons,
And enrolled in a class and don’t know who the professor is,
How low people go for the dough and make a mess of things,
Kids are murdering other kids for the fun of it,
Instead of using their mind or their fist, they put a gun in it
Wanna be a part of a clique, don’t know who’s running it,
Tragedy on top of tragedy you know it’s killing me.
So many people in agony, this shouldn’t have to be,
Too busy focusing on ourselves and not His Majesty,
There has to be some type of change for this day and age,
We gotta rearrange and flip the page,
Living encaged like animals and cannibals,
Eating each other alive just to survive the nine to five,
Every single day is trouble while we struggle and strive
Peace of mind’s so hard to find.
I wanna shout, throw my hands up and shout
What’s this madness all about
All this makes me wanna shout
You know it makes me wanna shout,
Throw my hands up and shout
What’s this madness all about
All this makes me wanna shout, c’mon now
Problems, complications and accusations
Dividing the nations and races of empty faces
A war is taking place.
No substitution for restitution, the only solution for peace
Is increasing the height of your spirituality.
Masses of minds are shrouded, clouded visions
Deceptions and indecision, no faith or religion, how we’re living.
The clock is ticking, the end is coming, there’ll be no warning,
But we live to see the dawn.
How can we preach, when all we make this world to be
Is a living hell torturing our minds.
We all must unite, to turn darkness to light,
And the love in our hearts will shine.
We're disconnected from love, we’re disrespecting each other
Whatever happened to protecting each other
Poisoned your body and your soul for a minute of pleasure,
But the damage that you’ve done is gonna last forever.
Babies being born in the world already drug addicted and afflicted,
Family values are contradicted.
Ashes to ashes and dust to dust, the pressure is building and I've had enough.
