    I've seen old blackface
    Refracted through white lawns
    Saw welcome wagon cross burnings
    Reflected on black farms

    Telling dirty secrets...
    Master Jeff's other kin
    Akin to exploitation ~
    Wet dog's skin-
    Checked 'em in

    Looking glass do pity
    Expose them if you dare
    Blackness feels so pretty
    I'm stained glass over here

    The view's no longer free
    HOMELAND wants a peep
    Thought being regulated...
    Get the picture-
    Hear that beep?
