    Lord, make them listen to these acoustic drums as they beat their rhythms
    Into the very soul of America
    Listen the voices in triumph as they sing songs of joy
    Exemplifying the heart of a Negro culture
    Listen the the sounds of blackness coming from my lips
    This teenaged Afro American female
    As they seep into your hearts and settle

    Come-unity, enter with my words
    Into My People
    Love, dissolve in the fluid of Freedom
    And change My People's mind
    As they wade in the Water
    Cymbals crash with fists of power
    While we reminisce the spirits
    Of our Dearly Dark skinned brethern and sistren:
    Martin Luther King, Malcom X, George Washington Carver
    Madam CJ Walker, Sista Soulja, Maya Angelou
    Rosa Parks, Fredrick Douglas, Harriet Tubbman
    You...me

    Black-rest with us before we make our way
    To this nations capital
    Marching by the millions
    We will no longer stand for this beating with rods of shame
    Pride will rebuild our African Kingdoms

    Let us as eagles soar, together
    Above the clouds
    Let us as wolves run, in packs
    Through the densely packed forests of injustice
    Let us as fish, in schools
    Take lessons from our elders
    Let us as ants, colonize
    And work in this Land of the Free
    Let us as African American Peoples, in one Family
    Live in this Home of the Brave
    Let us unite because of Heritage and Pride
    And let us peacefully engage in activities
    That stimulate our hearts to act in love
