    the law says
    we be free

    the people say
    we be free

    but i ain't free

    who dey be
    to judge me
    say i not a man
    then saying
    IN GOD WE TRUST
    while still owning
    US

    justifying their ends
    trying to cover their sins
    with propaganda
    bullshyt
    now
    here i sit
    racially profiled
    exiled
    to garbage strewn
    neighborhoods
    and they say we up to no good
    coz we don't bow to them
    no mo'

    say it ain't so

    tell me it ain't so

    somebody, tell me i ain't a slave...no mo'

    free by law...to be a slave to da man
    and liberty land
    says it's
    o'kay
    and nothing i say
    will get me free.

    THANKS, C.
    for reminding us to WAKE UP.

    Awesome piece
    Insightful and true

    Free
    To be
    Slaves

    slave me not
    i be free
    under ya spell

    gave in my whole
    yet u claim da soul

    why i can't be free
    to speak openly
    jail me in shackles
    locked in chains
    but my brains be free
    when da man think 4 me
    **** under freedom
    curse
    of da man !
