    see i be
    way back
    back before
    sitting in the back
    of busses
    old glory?
    neva trust it
    back before
    slave ships
    musket grips
    hateful whips
    see i be
    way back back before
    civil wars
    boston tea parties
    i was around
    when moses
    parted the
    red sea
    see i be back before
    a castrated month
    to celebrate
    me...see
    i be in the breeze
    rustling leaves
    in the garden of eden
    with adam and eve...
    actually...i be adam and
    my queen be eve
    see i be back
    way back at the beginning of
    time rearranging
    constellations
    more powerful
    than city hall demonstrations
    and sit ins
    see me and my queen
    we be where life begins
    we be where life ends
    we be glorious histories
    to soothe all miseries
    it ain't a mystery
    where we be
