    the cry of freedom
    left hanging in the air

    leaving frustration pain
    and plenty despair

    i cry for freedom
    freedom from the lies

    a cry in the dark
    please open your eyes

    a cry for freedom
    from a racist system

    that judges my people
    holdin all against them

    lets get free yall
    free from the drugs

    that steal our dreams
    as if they never was

    lets get free yall
    free from this oversexed society

    teachin us to sell our bodies
    then judgin all the young
    daddies and mommies

    dont u want to be free
    free from this capitalist state

    where the rich feed off the poor
    where crime is a realistic fate

    i cry for freedom
    freedom for our babies

    hopin they get the chance
    to become strong black men
    and beautiful black ladies

    lets get free yall
    free from televisions trance

    its killing our sense of self
    leaving us without a chance

    to find out who we are
    to form our own opinions

    lets get free yall

    hope my cry is heard

    i cry for freedom

    but to u its just some

    spoken words....:cry:

    U cry for freedom and I hear you loud and clear.
    My cry for freedom is what's closet to my heart, it's what I hold dear.
    Our cry for freedom is far and in between.
    Most people's cry for freedom involves havin' all the c.r.e.a.m.
    Let's all stop crying for freedom and start fightin' for it.
    Our eyes are being clouded from our tears.
    It's time we start facing our fears.
    And while we're talking about freedom amongst each other.
    Let's talk strategy, make sure our freedom fighting is for one another.
    Cause if my freedom doesn't equal to what you want and need,
    We'll be messed up even more and that's true indeed.


    Nice verse cypher!
