    Looking through this mirror
    of my ancestors tree
    wondering what this image i see
    trying to understand
    how can it be
    as blacks where's our unity
    what happen to you and me
    can't we see , we still not free
    washed in the cycle of dreams

    Did we lose our way as tormented soul
    was this our common life goal
    did this journey take a divergent path
    into another universe age ole to last
    has perception of deep oppression
    set the tone in secondary american way
    these images like a game we play

    The blur upon my eyes
    never seem to surprise
    how we aim to pass da blame
    and never seem to act and claim
    leaving this mirror reflecting deep shame
    yet recognizable of enlightment
    still struggling wit inflicked past pain
    in da archway of bloody stain
    becoming a creed infection
    mental mind lost direction
    stones of steel and none compassion

    Forefathers and ancestors
    what a price they paid
    being the alimony payment laid
    that we rise and bond as powerful as da sun
    be a voice so strong but we turning out wrong
    but i see the breeze of da wind
    the way it kickin in sin
    i only can catch a glimpse of kin
    my people and broken friends
    curved around this mirror image
    looking at link by link snapping

    I may not be here to celebrate da closure
    from this chewing and sour exposure
    our children my be in contempt
    from watching how we have slip
    into the pit of destruction , beating each other
    rarely do the face show through da smoke
    tyme we stop da war of black on black
    looking into this mirror wondering where we went !
    in a stormy fight to not do what's right
