    When I was young I used to be
    "O saying" like
    O say can you see....in a
    misguided broken harmony
    I was only a kid trying to survive elementary
    /schools/ create fools out of
    children told to comply / submit
    to the lies remit your soul for
    freedom in diss-guise

    constantly getting "dissed"
    and didn't even know it
    I was a CON ditioned negro child
    hand placed over my heart to
    pay homage to a country that
    tore my people apart / left us all searching
    for our historical light in a
    confused deluded mental plight /
    we exist as the mentally dark / pitch black existence
    searching for an on switch on a nasa created back pack
    to zoom up out of this chaos /

    O say can you see???
    open your eyes see lucifers child
    in the water / smell the spoiled
    milk from the tit of miss libertease /
    Uncle Sams inbred daughter /
    with the ashes of the twin towers
    in her back pockets /
    now the rockets are burning rubber
    dycks hard waiting to be fired /
    at our enemy...enemy...enemy...supposed enemy...
    our minds need enemas to clear our mental banks
    of this bullshyt that stanks to
    the high heavens...

    nine eleven?

    lucifers child smiled when we were attacked by
    terr (her) ists on these soils / beaten with
    billy clubs / bitten by shepards / where is our remembrance day?
    where is our love?/ continually treated like lepers /
    O say...O say...can you see...
    this lands lasting plight ? Reparations is just
    yet, creating separation among us / why?/

    some still be backwards / preservatively conservative
    trying to live another man's life / with white wives
    and white minds whose time is on the line?

    ours who be still be O saying O saying...
    O saying..
