    Why are we here on this land
    do we know our beings as africans
    will we ever return home
    or will we forever stay and roam

    This not our true place
    as we still look to da sun God in da sky
    asking for reasons why
    who do we follow and believe

    In this whate wash life of greed
    mixing our nations wit half breed
    killing the true nature of our seed
    are we complainting or uplifting

    What's going on inside our heads
    as we revisit the graves of ancestors dead
    are we mentally still enslaved
    by what da white man gave

    We no longer slaves
    yes we have come a very long way
    in this corrupted liberty stay
    how long do we wait and lay

    In americkka death slay
    continue to be there prey
    when we stronger to this day
    why are we here ?????

    if

    we weren't here this country AMERIKKKAN would have NEVER had the

    promenience it did, by our ancestors providing "free" labor all those

    centuries, it did wonders in building an EMPIRE

    we are here and we're still standing

    standing tall

    don't let people fool you/us

    we are very strong

    we are here, yet, in this land,
    tho' we remain true africans.
    whether we stay here, or yet roam.
    hate here? maybe. yet i call it home.

    this may not be our true place.
    yet here is a truth that i must face:
    i've sown sweat here--blood and tears.
    i've earned my place here--thru the years.

    yes, this is a land that's filled with greed,
    murdering the nature of my seed.
    but yet, i hesitate to believe
    that all my struggles i should cede.

    when i visit the graves of ancestors dead,
    what should be going thru my head...
    is every drop of blood they shed...
    so freedom could become my bed.

    to the white man, no more credit i'll give
    for mental shackles. instead, i'll live
    to destroy anything that keeps me enslaved,
    or anyone that gets in the way

    of my liberation. and brother,
    i further do pledge,
    that i will be here.
    when you're close to the edge,
    your struggles i'll share.

    (does that answer the question?)
