    I heard him...

    I heard that brother scream
    spliced my dreams left me on the floor
    of the dark room of america
    just mere remnants of apple pie
    crust and
    who can I trust?

    I heard that brother scream when that cop
    stop slammed then popped that brother
    upside the head in the back
    beat him 'til he bled tomorrow so
    it would die before that brother met it

    I heard that brother strain the bough
    of the tree as he hung soul strung up
    and quartered...his misery held me
    like an unwanted son upon the breast
    of a beast feeding me spoiled milk...so
    I could feel the ills of this SO CiETee

    from the inside out

    I heard that sister scream as her image
    was raped by history manifested through
    music of minds lost and bought with
    the thirst to have more than the next MAN

    see man
    see man
    see man
    man will mislead you...down the path
    where your mind is halved and you fight
    yourself to find yourself
    but end up by yourself cause miseducation
    leaves you lonely

    I heard this sister scream that she was
    "the baddest *****"

    ****...

    capitalism mental castration denigrating
    sensations make one profess self hatin'
    under the disguise of keeping it real
    and if a brother kept it real he would get
    cussed out and smacked and what kind
    of irrational **** is that....

    I don't know
    I don't know

    all I know is that tomorrow ain't promised
    we have to fight **** near die just experience
    what real peace is.
