    Thanking of giving sweet yet sad
    bitter hope dreams crash
    hit by da pilgrims dash

    are u thankful

    for the pie when it baked fill wit lies
    mixed of defeat lost wit bitter sleep
    how can we eat the pie

    they serve us ,curb us
    lable us and toss us
    mentally tricked us

    are you really thankful

    coz the job u sight making 50k in da light
    a piece of da pie yet leave a sistah/brutha
    helpless to die , can you hear da cry!
    my my my !!!!!

    then at night turn ya back cross ya own just to bite
    what's not home made but bought from poverty
    cooked wit shame baked at 450 degrees
    half burned yet at a death mental freeze

    what about the cake no chocolate half baked
    just white cream cut deep many years of screams
    killing the heart of true dreams

    so many died, I can hear there cries
    so we can rise from da pilgrim pride
    but in the oven we fall
    killing , stealin , mixin in all
    breed like it was our best mixing black & white
    da seed of creed til da deed is done

    u thankful for that !
    this smack that's whack a slice of the cake
    that drips like yoke but beatin whip to thy backz

    the treat of feast within the harvest that has no end
    unity in our community they sin again and again
    stuck together yet cut confused of what we get
    as it crumble no bond pocket tight man on da run
    laughter all night as millions cry for a piece of the pie

    are we really thankful

    for the food before us, did we bless a verse
    to the millions that's very worse
    or give a dime spend a little time
    help others so they shine, offer some hop
    as winter clash
    cold will not pass so the heat is real
    inside our struggle that we feel

    are we thankful !

    think of the time years behind
    the teaching is on the plate,skoling is set still we late
    are we mentally thinking yet have we giving our best
    to give and be thankful break bread and harvest
    knowing a soul is saved while our great ancestors
    rest not turn in da grave blood tears dry asking why

    one whole feed a village spreading nation wide
    home is our mother land from this crazy ameri-kan

    to be thankful is to be wise
    use the wisdom of knowledge as it plies
    we was bless and we rise
    the power at hand and help stop our sorrow
    and deep struggle so pass the thanksgiving pie

    may i have a piece, let everyone taste the treat
    of sweetness and heed black on black crime
    sheld the false fruits of oppressors lies

    so are we really thankful for all the wrong we do
    born into a promise of hardship beleive it's true
    still we dip cheat and lie just to get by and look down
    on our own u thakful for this wrong

    if u try and wake up to the reality of life
    cast no stone and judge not
    remember everything oven cooked is hot
    when the cake & pie is done share it
    to every mouth and ear that come

    please please don't make me beg!!!
    give and be thankful and not off da tribe
    this pie is not real just what was place before us
    so before u bite remember our true fight

    before you eat just think of the cries of Indians
    why this day lie of feast is hurtful.

    FREE YOUR MINDZ
    and know we are thankful for life
    but thankful for what it is sad us deeply
    through da depth of the double edge sword
