    We da people
    the color hush
    born into struggle
    like a gold rush
    strip, beaten, stolen
    rape, killed,
    hung at will
    we the people
    skin 2 skin
    burning thrill
    to defeat the odds
    that they lay
    silent whispers
    how we pray
    the war of hope
    the screammin call
    to stop the self
    destructional wall
    we unite and stand
    as black women & men
    we the people
    form a perfect union
    wit common defense
    bonding unity as one
    community
    time to stop the pain
    live in harmony
    wit no shame
    fingers pointed low
    time we not blame anymore
    but free the mind
    to claim the fame
    that the man has taken & tame
    bring back the true fight
    freedom speech and people rights
    we the people
    in da land of a place call american
    yet our hearts souls and minds
    still hear da cries of african
    africa sweet motherland
    great worriors
    great pride
    no longer subside
    we stand in da will
    of our tru nation
    as we shut down the helm
    of slave plantation
    taking back our direction
    no time to feel da man's
    compassion
    but the affection
    of the cry
    open ya eyez
    see who we are
    look high to the starz
    so bright see the KINGZ
    in the twinkle delight
    radiant shine cross the
    landz to let them know
    we making this stand
    we now in whole as one
    full body & soul
    they call us names
    brand us a lost
    but now we stand
    at all cost
    no boss ruler
    no mista
    no mo beaten
    no mo drivers
    only the weak
    lost and liers
    betrayal ,hate
    some deep desires
    to continue our
    struggling fire
    we da people
    marching in millions
    feeling the struggling
    billions of our own
    time we now take back
    our home of free
    not this so call liberty
    God we trust paperback
    the rule of all evil dis be
    whack !
    hear the call from the sea
    as waves splash bangin
    rocks cring to be free
    like we the people of the
    street some wit no food
    to eat some wit no
    shoes to their feet
    sleeping where ever
    struggling to stay alive
    and broken promises
    strip dreams
    young bruthas doing
    they things bringing
    in the bling bling !!
    feeding da vains
    not the brains
    sistah's of the night
    selling a gifted treasure
    at extreme measure
    for a hour pleasure
    but left wit a life long pain
    nickle , dime mutha
    twisted minded brutha
    who pay the cost
    so many at this lost
    we the people
    we the people
    we the people
    time we stand
    bond unite in unity
    save , teach , speak
    inside our community
    be that night angel
    keep our children
    from harm & danger
    feed a soul
    cloth a body
    shelter one heart
    this where
    we the people
    must start
    STAND up
    coz i am
    wit tears in my eyes
    to river a ocean
    blood boil & bleed
    for the life we deceed
    cast all cares
    bare da war
    it our struggle
    door 2 door
    we have to face the tides
    and stop this mesmerized
    bleep of self defeat
    so we all someday get
    a peaceful; sleep
    we the people
    we the people
    we the people
    this struggle
    our struggle

    NO MORE !
    PEOPLE STAND UP!
