    When the Sun comes out so do I
    though my skin can't handle it
    my ancestors could not understand the darkness
    & they had no candles, so they had to keep the torches lit
    our skin is a curse, we want to be darker
    so you can oftern find us out in the Sun
    but our skin is a curse, we can't handle it's 19 rays
    so you can often find, that we got cancer and died out in the Sun
    we didn't understand astrology, or have knowledge of time
    until the Sumerians showed us but we were still totally lost
    this is why twice a year
    you have to turn your clocks back and forth
    we were kicked out of the Garden of Eden
    because living the righteous life was too hard
    so we were forced to travel across the hot sands
    and ended up in the land of Nod
    where we created the first wreck-creation park
    ever seen in History
    where we planned our revenge on God's people
    for we knew the knowledge of who was God was no mystery
    when we came back we knew we would have to re-write the books
    & claim we brought civilization which was all nonsense
    but in order to survive
    we had to to deprive the rest of the world of all it's contents
    we walked on all fours
    in the caves & hills of West Asia
    Eating Juniper roots & each other
    and the mirror image of G.O.D. (dog) was our only savior
    we used to sleep in the trees
    but the beasts of the field used to eat us
    the onlyu friendly animal was the Dog
    and with a bark is how he's greet us
    he stood in front of the cave
    just for extra protection
    his bark now became a warning
    and we'd kiss him in the mouth jsut to show extra effection
    some of us even took it further that that
    we were so deep in sin
    but like the bible we put together, I'll give you half the story
    the rest, I'll let you fill it in
    we grew hair on our face and backs
    to protect us from the freezing atmosphere
    we were cannibals of the wors kind
    & with no fire, our food we had to have it rare
    the way we like our steaks today
    because yesterday is still in our nature
    our language was full of grunts and gestures
    so we couldn't ask our women for sex, so we hit her on the head and raped her
    then a miracle happened
    and something started to change inside us
    a man named Moses came to the caves
    he said he was sent to civilize us
    he brought us lessons on how to live
    then he disappeared for forty days
    we lost the faith and just like that
    returned right back to our wicked ways
    we hated those who didn't look like us
    so subconciously we made them rivals
    though our non melinated skin
    often made us feel suicidal
    we didn't know the earth was round & knew the true gods didn't favor us
    so in rebellion, we set up rituals to worship the Sun
    then set up a Supremecy system on earth
    because we knew we were outnumbered at least 11 to 1
    we created guns to protect our selves
    stole everything from the lands we were visitin'
    after they showed us how to live off the land
    we gave blankets infested with smallpox to the Indians
    we lied and said Columbus dis-covered this land
    stepped off his ship and took it for his booty
    though there were people already here including some blacks living with the Indians
    Columbus re-named after one of his Italian senders named Amerigo Vespuci
    we traveled back to the East & found the God's
    with skin like burnish brass, & they knew the birth dat of the stars
    they had hair like lamb's wool
    & they even told us who built the pyramids & put the face on Mars
    After many years they finally took us into their schools and civilized us
    gave us 33 degrees and stayed on top of me
    but with our wicked nature, we stole their knowledge
    went back home and called it Greek Philosophy
    with what we brough back
    our people developed a higher yearning
    so we sent back Alexander the Snake
    to raid their halls of higher learning
    while he was there he found scrolls
    if applied properly they could help to guide you
    their names were "Enuma Elish & The Gilgamesh Epics"
    after we watered it down & let Shakespear re-write it we called it the By-Bill
    we set up a system so bias and strong
    we thought God himself coundn't contain it
    so then we infiltrated Law, Religion, Sex
    Sports, Politics & Entertainment
    we told our slaves that we were God
    then forced them to bow down and worship us
    but we must have missed a verse that said "one day your slaves would join an enemy of yours"
    come back and end up hurting us
    We tried to prevent the rise of a black Messiah
    By Killing X, Evars, Turner, King, Newton, Michael Manley & Lumuumba
    the list goes on when it comes to male blacks
    we gavi God's children all types of diseases created in labs
    God's people gave us life & in return we gave God's people The Bush family, Clarence Thomas, Aids & Crack!
