hidden
see hes organized
and he's on the ball
never miss a day at school
and he's the under dog
he wanna learn more and more
cause his mama taught him good
he's bout to change the face
of your ghetto neighborhood

walking to school today
saw a brotha on the street
seem like everything was cool
cept the brotha was packin heat

...then everything changed
cause he saw his own wings
and his mother was sad
time will pass
pain will last

STOP
what am I talkin about
everybody know what the songs about
they be trying to hide the history
but they know who we are
do you want to see
everybody rise to next degree
raise your hands high if you agree
just say YES SIR-REE...

now to folks that think they livin' sweet
they (powers) gone fuck around & push delete
to my girls on prescription pills
I know how you feel
to my folks in lraqi fields
this ain't no time to kill
to my girls in therapy
Im 'ma tell you this for free
to my boys up on the hill
with the cake & the dolla bills
you need to watch the dirty cops
they the ones you need to watch
I'm talkin bout the dirty cops
they the ones you need to watch

STOP
you got the wake up call
when you saw the buildings fall
bow ties with the Final Calls
get yo money, dollar bill yall
bow ties with the Final Calls
get yo money, dollar bill yall
to my folks on the picket line
don't stop till you change they mind
I got love for my folks
Baptized when the Levy broke
we gone keep marchin on
till we here that freedom song
and if you think about turnin back
I got the shot gun for your back
and if you think about turnin back
I got a shot gun on ya' back
(harriet style)

BACK BLACK!!!
what am I talkin about
