    There are those who say
    I've go insane...
    all cause I keep it real,
    and speak off the chain.
    But what can I say,
    bout the way you may feel...
    cause I choose to stand up
    and choose to reveal...
    the lies and the truth,
    to our men and our women,
    and even our youth.
    Cause we are long over due,
    of dumping this garbage
    out of me and of you.
    I say things that keep us shook,
    revealing there's another book,
    and like a fish I'm off the hook.
    Freedom of mind is a serious battle,
    but we act like babies
    when I take away our rattle.
    But we got to deal
    with this historic crook...
    So maybe you too
    should be living off the hook !

    Keita,
    Great Call
    Gotta get it off the hook to answer.....
    push the proper button these dayz.....
    some people will only go where they are smiled at
    and only answer what they think is going to be pleasant
    but somethings we gotzta deal with regardless........

    Peace and Blessings
