    our struggle is unrivaled
    survival is the name of this game
    it's enough to drive the average white boy insane
    that's why they're blowing up our buildings
    killing our children
    clouding our vision
    with thoughts that are saturated with murder and pain
    sometimes i feel the rain will never end
    our elders seldom remind us about the revolution that they began
    and though the cycle of life is infinite
    homicide plus genocide equals black lives returned to dust again
    but nevertheless
    to trade the skin that i'm in
    would be in complete violation of the creation of the original man
    almost as deadly as original sin
    when we got drunk from the sea of forgetfulness
    and lost our lineage
    now we wear struggle like appendages
    miseducation is causing our brain to hemorrahge
    i've witnessed this
    they're feeding us psychopathic bullshyt
    saying everything black is wicked and devilish
    yo what the hell is this?
    and white means incapable of evil intent?
    their definition, not mine, i've seen the crimes the caucasoid commits
    everyday living won't let me forget
    our ghetto commerce emerced with artificial unintelligence
    we can't see the forest for the mental thickets
    our eyes are beaten black and blue
    because of who?
    this ****'s ridiculous
    collectively, we have forgotten our strength
    and the struggle has captured our soul
    so the question now becomes can you resist?

    resist oppression.
    resist miseducation.
    resist self-annihalation.
    resist degradation and despiritulization.
    resist idle frustrations.
    resist neo-colonization.
    resist, resist, resist.....
