    Ain't no more raised fists in the air
    no more brothers to raise no "real hell"
    for no "real causes" cause real
    seems so abstract now

    so one dimensional //
    sides are blurred into a smeared
    hue of transparency
    yet no one seems to be able to
    see through the obvious

    Ain't no more raised fists in the air
    the mission is complete
    more brandy fifths
    and blunted spliffs are raised than
    children /

    stunted they will be / trapped
    in a mental state
    with a population of thousands
    of lost people /who have yet to
    grow up beyond a menial
    acceptance of their existence

    Ain't no more raised fists in the air
    cause all the fists are used to
    beat mates into sub/mission
    intentional destruction of their
    foundation is against the laws
    of self preservation

    weak they will be backbones
    pulverized in a social mortar
    with a pestle of pessimism
    and tomorrow brings
    more rain

    or are children crying
    are the women crying
    are the men crying

    Ain't no more raised fists in the air
    biochemical warfare has
    left the afro nappy
    yet the minds have been processed

    and the screams of intransigency
    have been turned so far up
    that the people cannot here them
    but the dogs wail in misery

    cause the screams are not of
    revolution but of a compromise
    a position retreated
    to no longer raise fists in the air
