    We need
    To know indeed
    We were born
    To succeed
    So many spermatazoa
    Only one made the score
    That one plus egg was you
    You mated and continued true
    In spite of all odds
    Beat the negative nods
    Got started
    Was not aborted
    Got ahead
    Beat every thread
    Of contrary plottin'
    Came on in to this world
    And was not in
    A hurry to leave
    Though your enemy did weave
    A plan to make you fail
    Already had your jail cell
    And your slaving chains
    And the dope to fry your brains
    Stand tall young warrior
    Don't fall, you're far from inferior
    Young queen, don't be lost
    The throne is yours, we've payed the cost
    Yes, the snare
    It's there
    But if you get knowledge and prepare
    You're gon' control
    That's your created role
    If your enemy can't deceive you and break your concentration
    Break up your future Nation
    Inflict you with amnesia
    Make you forget the one who sees ya'
    Guiding you on to be Victorious
    Past the traps and on to Glorious
    To the way that's yours with your name on it
    You've gotta make your claim on it
    You got to feel it
    Don't let the Devil steal it
    Don't go out like that at such a young age
    Don't leave a vacuum on life's stage
    Don't allow these vultures who've already planned our demise
    Who are already spending our wealth right in front of our eyes
    Kick you to the curb and get you out of the game
    With you in the picture they can't keep on doin' the same
    Young Brother and Sister
    And you old ones with the right mind
    Don't just follow the script and be blind
    Change it up, use your own mind
    Take your own place
    In the race
    Run your race
    And return to Grace
    Be who you really are
    And TAKE YOUR PLACE.
