Mo blood gonna half 2 be shed We seem to think our freedom came via the stroke of a pin Ignoring the enemy within Two am calls seeking the next of kin Happens with alarming frequency ---- We allowed mass Media to erode our since of decency I never knew a people tricked so damned completely We put trust in leaders selected in shrouds of secrecy Anti-American feelings enflamed Young folks look at ministers with rims and mansions with distain Moral authority they can no longer claim Don’t trust em Is more than an hip hop refrain With each passing day We put to shame Heroic names Do you think Harriet Tubman would be tamed? Like the aftermath of Katrina We spread the blame Rainbow warriors and bean pies merchants Spitting game Both modern day Cains Yet try to explain That on their watch Our pain Tripled Along with our misery Block after block white powder is the prevailing industry It used to be that to get paid One would seek the ministry Or get a corner store and sell Hennessy So now an unholy trinity Has become our enemy Our energy is expanded in fueling the negative It has been suggested That our sub conscious minds Have been arrested Developments in mind control Enhance the role Of the television, Sparking the divisions Set tripping causing collisions Brainwashed by history’s revisions Elders and ancestors look on with derision Fueling the suspicion The blood on our streets Is fuel to the American economic system? Black men in prison **** how the numbers have risen As I said in my poem Black Power, On the watch of William Jefferson Clinton Black men on death row still filled American’s prisons And just for the record Ron Brown was murdered, is anybody listening? We see the world through our enemy’s prism Thus we see only the difference In Muslim, Jew and Christian Dark clouds of the apocalypse Gather in the distance America plays a game of chicken With countries that have the power to deliver mushroom clouds Our leaders are aroused By power thus they espouse An agenda with dangerous repercussions This has become much more than us v the Russians 80-year-old men in the shadows Giving instructions They’ll be first to seek the underground bunkers To survive the destruction I say that to say we are mistaken in seeking political solutions We get pimped by one party and ignored by the other Politically smothered voters fly to the polls but still they suffer We have yet to discover Republican and Democrats Are skull and bone blood brothers political games create the illusion masking the collusion in the confusion they are taking new world orders increasing the slaughter of first world lives desecration of tribes spreading lies 535 elected officials – so what? democracy is a mere disguise but will it matter when the dirty bombs start to fly toxic fumes poison the sky our greed is destroying mother earth but giving birth to karma that we aren’t prepared to handle administration scandals a mindless president on television rambles his policy in shambles on a gamble going to war over manipulated data the chickens continue to gather coming home to roost will we stay blind to the truth they say that the love of money is the root was it love of money in 63 that gave orders to shoot a man down in broad daylight the power of dark over light to live by the sword cuts both ways so if history is repeated and a puppet gets wet and his associates sprayed will we finally have justice and a chance for better days?
