    Under their influences
    As we are gathered in their confluences
    Not knowing the affluence of inflamed consequences
    And
    These consequences are distorting our rising sequences by
    Building monuments and installing agenda of nothingness in our dome piece
    Nothingness leads to excuses of why we
    Can’t verbalize our native tongue
    And
    Can’t recognize our original script
    We can’t feel the essence of her presence
    And appreciate the thickness in her phenotype
    Can’t salute to the command in her voice
    We can’t submerge with our inner sensitivity
    So we loss executive function
    Instead we are cross-matching our genetic pool
    Wondering how and why she’s got Indian in her family cause of her nice hair or fair skin
    We still suffer from the effects of that lesion from our past
    Instead we are comparing who push the latest whip
    And who’s got the hottest chrome
    Our men are still counting the number of skins they can testify to prove their manhood
    Sisters are counting how many mics they’ve blessed in order to get a shout out
    And still…
    We are under their influences
    Gathered in their confluences
    We still can’t verbalize and idealize our native tongue
    We continue to nurture that lesion from our past
    Ooh natives of Alkebulan
    Beware that the blood of the greatest Kings and Queens runs through your veins
    Be cognizant and rebuke every fiber of commercial slavery
    Because we are presented with suspect infomercial
    That deteriorates the curvature of our legacy
