    We are living in the middle of a Melting Pot.
    That meaning at the border rid yourself of everything you got.
    Then pass it down the line of mass production,
    now it can be bought.
    And you won't get no respect, No mention,
    like Jazz, soon Hip Hop.
    See, you ignorant of ALL my culture,
    still you wear them braids...
    I'm empowered, rhythm showered,
    rise up where you lay.
    What you got me for be only what you
    dont have at birth...
    Creator of the drum, my Father,
    Mother heal the Earth.
    And you KNOW you don't know Bob Marley.
    Never heard before today of Marcus Garvey.
    Yet you wrap your stringy head and alarm me,
    what my people built you'll turn against me and harm me...

    If God elect US, somehow effect US
    Break into our mentality and correct US
    Spirit erect US, if Earth reject US
    Return our original nature
    RESURRECT US......

    RESURRECT US
    from the stench of our
    MISPLACED TRUST
    and all the love we claim to have
    FOR US
    that allows our head to be misled
    by greed and lust

    RESURRECT US

    let the river flow.
