    I don't want to just BE
    I want free
    I don't want to just BE
    I want intoto diasporic harmony
    I don't want to just BE
    I want African descendant UNITY
    I don't want to just BE
    I want the village to really raise the child
    I don't want to just BE
    I want child to really raise the smile
    I don't want to just BE

    BEing
    is just
    Being
    is just
    BEing

    standing on the corner
    waiting for
    just somethin'
    that ain't never gon'
    take place

    I don't want to just BE
    I want to breathe........
