EVERY DAY MY SOUL BLEEDS
BODIES LAYIN IN THE STREETS
THE EARTH FERTILIZED IN BLOOD
WHEN IS ENOUGH GONE BE ENOUGH
FOOT SOLDIERS FOLLOWING ANOTHER MAN'S PLAN
BRINGING ABOUT YOUR OWN DESTRUCTION
LEARN HOW TO BE YOUR OWN MAN
NOW DON'T GET ME WRONG
JUST CUZ I AM TIRED OF HEARIN IT
DON'T MEAN THERE AIN'T TRUTH IN THE SONG
BUT WE MUST GET PASS THIS AND CONTINUE TO RISE
SO, CLOSE YOUR MOUTH AND OPEN YOUR EYES
BECAUSE, THE REVOLUTION WILL NOT BE TELEVISED

YOU WILL NOT FIND SALVATION IN ANYONE ELSE
MAKE A CHOICE TO MAKE A CHANGE
IN THE WAY YOU VIEW OTHERS AND YOURSELF
TRY TO BRING A LITTLE SOLIDARITY
AND UNITY WITHIN THE COMMUNITY
SEE YOUR REFLECTION WITHIN
YOUR BROTHER'S EYES
THE LIFE TAKEN MAY BELONG TO ANOTHER
BUT A PART OF YOUR SOUL DIES
EVERY TIME YOU WRONGLY TRANSGRESS
OR WOUND YOUR BROTHER
AND WHEN IT IS GONE THERE WILL BE NO OTHER
EDUCATE YOURSELF THEREIN LIES THE SOLUTION
KNOW YOURSELF THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK
DON'T SUCCUMB TO VERBAL POLLUTION
LET THE SAD TALES OF SELF-PRODUCED DEMISE
GO THE WAY OF ALL HALF-TRUTHS AND LIES
AND KEEP IN MIND
THE REVOLUTION WILL NOT BE TELEVISED
PEACE!

It's a lot going on and I know I have not been here for a long time but it is about to change.
