    Lost in the sea of dispare
    left with weakness that we share
    we slumber

    dreaming dreams that drane
    us of days that we once reigned
    ruled without shame
    but now
    ominous clouds of doubt rain
    where there was obvious strengh
    we're shells of our powerful selves
    patatking in entrees of
    ignorance, fear, and disdain
    with sides of hopelessness and pain

    and after we eat - we sleep

    but aren't we are supposed to wake
    refreshed, recovered, rejuvinated
    ready to restart
    our day
    our night
    our lives
    our fight

    and yet we continue to sleep

    i wanna
    stir us to consciousness
    shake us awake
    scream us to our feet
    whatever it takes
    to end our sleep
    in order to start a new day

    a day in which we return
    to our roots
    regain our royalty
    relish in our rich realm
    of cultrue and beauty
    pride and prominace
    genius and majesty

    so wake up to education
    wake up to inititive
    ambition
    and economics
    wake up to be fathers
    husbands
    brothers
    freinds
    and leaders
    wake up to the privelege
    of black skin
    and the knowledge
    that we are the only ones
    that will give us that privelege

    because it is our blackness
    that makes us strong
    that makes us graceful
    cool, sleek, insiteful,
    and oh so sexy
    don't let their hate
    make us think we're less

    and once we're well rested
    revitalized and have
    seen the real possibilities
    of our perfectly plausable
    night visions
    we will be anxious
    to awake as to be able
    to bambard society with
    bravery that won't brake
    brought about
    because we no longer
    dream those dreams
    of imprisoned slaves
    we see new scenes
    saturated by
    blessed, bright, beautiful
    black kings

    THIS WAS TIGHT TOO BAD SO MANY SLEEP AND AND HATE ON THIS BOARD WELL IT MADE ME WANNA DROP A LITLLE SOME SOME

    Whack thing on the street black kings are asleep no knowledge
    Being reproduce garbage turn to brain juice low grades in college
    Speak jiggy with ambiguity it’s all dignity unable to come true
    At the table sip a brew black kings I have to label you
    This give rise to specualtation surprise that a nation
    Suffer for black kings got a buffer to shine the situation

    and return as reprsentatives
    of God at our best
