    Is it too late?

    Is it too late?
    Can I escape now? People are on my tail
    Along with schizophrenic-attitudes
    It's up to me to choose
    I've got so much to lose
    With this cocaine in my brain
    I've got nothing but the blues

    I'm going insane
    Who, can I blame?
    Neglecting myself
    Neglecting my children
    Is it too late?
    Or can I escape?

    I got this insane thing
    Runnin' round in my brain
    I've got bad thoughts I never had before
    Every day I get them more and more
    It's got to be the cocaine it's driving me insane
    I must throw away the pipe
    And get into another lane.

    I'm in a misplaced land
    No whiteman and very few blacks can understand.
    The pain and suffering of the Afrikan
    Stolen from a distant land
    One way tickets, no round trips
    Double standards
    Double laws
    Double jeopardy
    Double punishment
    With hangin's in their jails
    Then dying and going to hell!

    I will no longer have a "dream"
    I will lose my self-esteem
    I will steal from my mother
    I will rob and kill my brother
    It will cause me to abuse and kill the children
    I must escape the pipe
    I must stop this free basin'
    I must love and respect myself
    If I don't. ? there's nothing left

    No love from the things above
    I hope’s it’s not too late
    If someone can understand?
    A black mis-educated Afrikan!
    Inner, this misplaced land.
    He's on my trail the pusher man.
    His plan or God’ plan?
    I must escape
    Or is it too late?
    To turn back now?
