    Blak man
    standing on the corner
    of your
    permonition /
    of what would come to
    this Society
    in a place where
    DKNY
    Gucci
    Tommy Hil
    Sean John
    FUBU
    don't meant a **** thing...
    They should've listened /
    minds open instead of opening purse
    strings to purchase things
    that don't mean a **** thing...to
    the good of us all....
    ...too many walk blindly brother
    bumping their heads on real words
    you drop like iron rain drops
    from a burning roof
    and you'd think they'd listen
    ...then maybe some of the pain
    would stop...
    this tragedy occurred well before
    the skies rained planes
    and the atmosphere gave birth to attitudes
    insane...
    foreign policy has been a twisted fallacy
    in this "moral" democracy
    check the hoods that are bombed by
    an unequal equality the hoods
    in NYC...Liberty City...
    east side detroit.....the projects in
    chicago..the sets of Cali...
    you name we got it
    you name it this govenment
    bombed it / not
    just bosnia / rwanda / or iraq
    but all the lands of the blak
    all the "hoods" of the blak
    .....it's just now that
    a "hood" got tired...
    but the planes landed a long time
    ago and no one was listening
    to YOU my brother...
    SO continue to stand
    on that corner and let your words resound so
    profound that even the ignorant
    will buy admission to get down to the truth....
    before the planes land again and screams saturate
    the grounds.......

    beneath all our feet
    from the ivory coast
    to the west coast......

    teach 'em
    preach 'em
    reach 'em
    MY BROTHER
    your horizons stretch
    farther than you can see

    YOU are the descendant of those
    THEY could not kill / a survivor of a
    heinous history / with the blood of
    warriors (SO'JAS) flowing
    through every orifice of your
    being...so
    TO MY BROTHER...
    keep your head up and know that
    "I" am "WE"
    and you are not alone.
