    I was kidnapped and whipped with you
    Took that long *** trip with you
    Slept in feces and piss with you
    Mind, body and soul was stripped with you
    Before these savages arrived
    I used to build pyramids and temples with you
    During the middle passage we almost died
    As I layed sick with you
    They brought us to the top of the ship once a day
    I was blinded by the light, then I got sprayed with you
    We heard the screams of our women crying for help
    I closed my eyes and prayed with you
    We took a silent oath
    You cry, I cry with you
    If you jump I’ll come and get you
    You die, I die with you
    Like the Amistaed we planned to start our revolt
    As soon as one of them hit you
    But something is strange now
    The plans totally changed now
    The look from your windows to your soul
    Just isn’t the same now
    I don’t recognize your language
    And your name has been changed now
    Even though your hands and feet are free
    I see chains around your brain now
    The foul meat they fed us on that ship
    You eat it like it’s sane now
    And it’s a shame how
    You love violence and bloodshed when we used to pray for peace
    Now your piece is causing pain now
    I haven’t seen you since I left that plantation
    When I ran away
    I thought you were right behind me, but you stayed
    It was a Saturday
    I remember because they wanted me to go against my religion
    And work on the holy Sabbath day
    I was so happy when I found you again
    But now it seems your mad at me
    I was listening to your music called rap
    And you said you wanted to clap me
    Kidnap and rape our sisters
    After you finished attacking me
    And if I fought back
    You would take out a knife and start hacking me
    have you forgotten psalms 82:6 and John 10:34-35 says, “Ye are all god’s”
    and you keep committing blasphemy
    If you were having a problem
    All you had to do was ask for me
    Like Satan it’s your right to choose the dark path
    But as for me
    I don’t want that type of allergy
    I’ll forever search for the light
    That was stolen by the beast
    When he brought wine and tricknology
    To deceive us in the East
    He brought war to disrupt our peace
    Now you carry a piece to bring war
    And you have now become the beast

    Can’t you hear your enemies laughing?
    At the way that you are acting
    They stole our religion, culture and God
    And this is exactly what they hoped would happen

    You should have stole away with me
    On that Saturday night
    But you didn’t run and became content
    Now your mind isn’t right

    Remember the drums we heard that night
    When the sun went down
    The message was to meet up at the railroad
    But, you had to catch it underground

    I’m just trying to jog your memory
    And bring that godly spirit back
    The government says there is no hope for you
    So they put into effect operation disappearing act
    So please put down your piece and bring true peace
    Cause it’s really the God in you that’s causing all this fear black

    So until your vision clears up and you acknowledge your brothers and sisters in the East
    And you no longer want to jeopardize me
    Just dwell on the middle passage remember the silent oath we took
    You cry, I cry with you
    If you jump I’ll come and get you
    You die, I die with you
    Look, it’s your brother...don’t you recognize me?

    assimilation. too many of our brothers have been assimilated by the enemy...have become the enemy. they no longer recognize the truth of who they are...they only recognize who they've become...and other like them.

    poignant piece of peace.
