    After hundreds of years
    still fall the sorrow tears
    of the wise from da wicked
    of eyes slam in da cage
    stuck in the system of da law
    that holds millions cross da land
    of A-me-ri-can
    jailed , dreams screams
    struggle rise by number suprising
    in the foolish game that's lame
    ancestors turn wit shame
    graves rumbles as life crumbles
    under false hope battered dreams

    Born into a depression of the people
    life dismay as they study our actions
    knew how to shatter the common bond
    after altered sons and daughters labled
    to be of destructional worlds
    the cries of bitter tears and salty blood
    runs like the river black souls captured
    from the path of learning from the wisdom
    that awaits instilled in the cage i hear da
    nightly screams and the pools of tears weep
    in my slumber of my sleep and cross the walls
    of my chamber the hollow shell of souls rise
    movin in spirit i vision the forefather's coming

    birth from da womb of woman second rib of man
    the cry of freedom is heard unto the life of new
    masked by the govormental laws to strike forth
    a new worrior born a savior a KING !!!
    action taken to fracture the life new meannings

    inside these lands of none free and no so sweet
    liberty i sing , i sing where thy father died and
    da souls that cry from the lack of unity to unite
    from communities and the nations cris upon the
    folks of color the cry i sing
    FREEDOM LET MY PEOPLE GO !!!!

    limb grow on my mirror
    as if involved with it's own image
    so i sit sheltered in the stained glass
    making art in the memory
    the cries of the orchestral hearts proceed
    conducting sounds as cage doors slam
    judged at birth to struggle as our forefather
    did
    but yet we trun cold heart death ear and
    blind eye from the altered life we was delt
    by the man who set da laws upon unjustice
    to kill the great africa spirit by judgemental
    but we may lay thy body down
    we may weep in the silent of mindz
    but we rise and rise
    from the graves we rise in spirit and stretch out
    in bonding hand n' hand for slavery is over
    so let my people go !!!!
    said the cries
    of teary eye
    supporting
    reaching
    giving
    loving
    holding
    all in transistion
    from cities to battle ground to
    peaceful surroundings of mother land
    we rise from the cries

    from the many years the fight continue
    blessing more our da people for the people
    we have to free our mindz
    free our souls from this mental hold
    free our ways of darkness to da beauty
    of reasons
    allow the open path to be a rejoice
    as we enter to better days ahead
    many may never see it i may never see it
    but somewhere ova the hill top into the deep
    valley the people will get their not by the power
    of death but the faith , knowledge and wisdom
    upon our wisemen
    time we join together to war off the prey that
    lurks under the cracks of our enteral everlasting
    from the Cage of mental vision
    stop the bleeding , the jailing, and bailing from da
    hood stop the killing the stealing , da raping
    and dope pushing robbing homes they knew this
    would bring us down make the great worriors frown
    cage in the 6 x 6 cell
    life dewell da cry for freedom ring !
    struggling today like yesterday and yesteryears
    just in a different way it all spell DEPRESSION!!!

    freedom freedom !
    let my people go .

    they cry , they cry !!!
