    Take this as a sign and warning
    Get your dam foot off my neck
    i'm being good to you this morning
    Letting you know i intend to collect
    Everything that's due me
    Everything i'm owed
    Yeah you tried to screw me
    Keep me for reaping what i've sowed
    It's just a time thang
    If you'd been wise you'd have know it
    Then you wouldn't have had to get your bell rang
    Nor would you have had to get lit
    i still have mercy on your soul
    For the good you were created to perform
    As i rise and inherit my role
    i extend to you refuge from harm
    Your original chance to do right
    Is ever in front of your face
    Even though you failed and inherited your present plight
    You still have a chance to erase
    Your deceitful thieving ways
    Maybe you will or maybe you won't
    Check out closely what it is your Master says
    This will determine what you do or you don't
    This is your last chance to get off me on your own
    To see that the tide has changed
    Your spell over the planet is gone
    Everything has been totally rearranged
    This aint no "I have a Dream" speech
    Nor singing of "We Shall Overcome"
    That dream is already well within reach
    We're already rising and coming on home.

    Wake up call

    rasheed, It is really sad for they do not see it and most people are tired of the abuses and you are right a change is forthcoming and it won't be fun!
