They know our power
Were not our enemy
But we are seen to be
What a big ass masquerade we decided to not know truth because we're afraid of fear
So we go back to ignorance and continue doing what we question
Is it because that's what we are told?
It enters into our subconscious and we blindly believe it
Since we're told we are nothing but niggas and threats, we believe it because that's all we know
But whose fault is that?
A blame can be justified but we can also take responsibility for what,we have not done to COME TOGETHER when we speak about our children falling off
Not only that but stop taking the high road
Heavens stairways isn't always the answer
Sometimes devils advocate is the righteous way
We get mad for the things being done to US but we accept those people in OUR world
Is it fear of not being accepted?
Fear of being painted as what they did to us?
Blacks are racists, by what system?
Sugar coated lied can only run us dry and leave us begging for sweet fruits we've neglected
Were the only ones told and majority listens,
When they say we accepted you, or be vermin
And were confused as to what our next move is
That's because they know our power
And we don't
We don't because we follow behind them
We seek help from them
We forgive them before we forgive our own
We accept them to take our culture and get more praise for it than,we do when we created it
We allow them to educate our children
Were fighting a system that'll never be fixed
Were so stuck on being the same as them that we forget or neglect that we are being hunted and preyed on like a mantis to a bug
They know we're we came from
They know who we were/are
They know what,our people did
They know we were FIRST
But we don't
And that's why most of us are lost like atlantis, but I have hope we can return
I'll let that sink in so you can finally THINK
