    I think that some folks just
    Plain ole scared of the truth
    don't want to rock the boat
    "make no waves"
    just stand in line next to da man
    afraid to represent like the spirits
    tell them, brainwashing is amazing
    subliminal spin cycles dry out
    even some of the blackest souls
    leaving those idolizing micheal jackson
    ...or what's left of him....
    I guess fear will prevent some from looking
    in the mirror, asking questions, and testing
    the hypothesis of thier catharsis when
    they emote while they revolt...
    I heard that "freedom is the road seldom travelled by the
    multitudes"....

    :cool: BRING IT!!!!!!!!!THE FUNK AND THE FLAVOR OF OUR HERD MENTALITY AND INABLITY
    TO LISTEN TO GOD GIVEN PRIMORDIAL SENSES! SOMETHING
    IS WRONG......REVOLT.....REVOLTING.......REVOLUTION
    NOT ACCEPTING THE STATUS QUO IS THE WORDS OF AN INSURRECTION YA DOES KNOW.........THE WORDS OF A LESSER MAN WOULD BE SCRAMBLED BEFORE WE BEGIN TO UNDERSTAND.
    THAT ONE WOMAN STANDING ON A BUS, CHANGED A WORLD, ONE MAN WHO SPOKE THE PRIDE OF HIS PEOPLE AND WORSHIPPED A GOD WHOSE NAME WESTERN CIVILIZATION DOES NOT RESPECT OR RECOGNIZE.......HELL, WE ARE ALL GUILTY OF TREASON
    FREEDOM, AND LIBERTY???????????AMERICA SILENCES THOSE
    WHO DO NOT ACCEPT THE STATUS QUO, AND THOSE WHO ARE
    AWAKE ARE A THREAT......TO BE AWARE IS TO SURVIVE! AND TO
    QUOTE GIL SCOTT HERON,POET AND ARTIST EXTROIDINAIRRE`

    ...continued

    scared cause blending in with the rest is easy
    scared to be scarred for truth's sake
    cause truth has a short life expectantcy in flesh
    but it s immortality lives soulfully

    and most scared folks
    ain t aware of soul
    cause soul moves you to be true
