    land of the slave
    home of the mentally illusioned
    and the pretty pictures
    on the matrix walls
    become more hypnotizing

    sad to say
    but martin’s dream
    is so far away from my reality
    that they will probably never
    cross paths

    cause the way to the crossroads
    has been blocked off
    one way street walk to wonderland

    where athletes become million dollar assets
    to multi-million dollar masters
    put a black face on white corporate ideas

    and watch black bodies in inner cities
    go mad wild
    manipulative media stategies

    in my mind and reality
    i be tearing the matrix down
    block by block

    yelling to my people
    from harriet’s route to
    come get free

    but most of them laugh at me
    cause my hair is too nappy
    and my thrift store ensemble
    ain’t quite flashy enough

    freedom is too expensive
    for poor souls
    so they accumulate white faces

    pack them safely away
    in pale face owned and operated banks
    but no one recognizes this irony

    interest in
    low interest rates on loans
    high interest on investments

    but spiritually uninterested
    cause fulfilling the flesh feels fine
    and finally

    when it’s all over
    and babylon’s walls fall
    the realization that pale faces
    don’t spend well on freedom’s side

    will crucify the pride
    of those who chose not to know
    welcome to reality
    but i know this ain t where you wanted to go
