Power To The People

[Intro]
Day to day the king sits on his throne
The laws of the land got me locked in the zone
The African drum resurrect the lost souls
I’m the god I trust from my head to my toes.

[Verse 1]
The land of the lost, attack a the clones
Wall street pirates out serving dirty loans
Invisible ink on the mortgage for the home
It’s a jailhouse sentence over thirty years long
Poison in the river, dead fish on the bank
A bag full of money and a closet full of bones
A trailer load of lies, the economy sank
It’s a new regime, the old king was over thrown
Snatched the crown and his body was stoned
Mahogany coffin outlined in chrome
Power to the people, raise your digital phones
Power to the people, raise your digital phones!

[Speech]
Day to day the king sits on his throne
The laws of his land got you locked in a systemic zone
I say let the African drum resurrect the lost souls
For I am the god I trust from my head to my toes.

[Verse 2]
Spain’s inquisition, paranoia’s atcha door
Colonized people for their strength and their gold
The French took the west, but they couldn’t take your soul
Portuguese sailors, British flags on the pole
The Dutch had New York before the boroughs and tolls
The codes of life removed from the scrolls
The African drum resurrect the lost souls
I’m the God I trust from my head to my toes
Freedom of speech is the last of the pearls
Stand your ground or get lost in the maze
White on black crime printed on the front page
Black on black crime is the real outrage
Analogue news in a digital age
A suicide culture, no snitchin’ in the streets
Murder ya’ self or get shot by police
Stop and frisk, oh shit, what’s this?!?
A hoodie on your head? A watch on your wrist?
Weed on your breath? Alcohol in your piss?
Money in the bank if you try to resist
Free health care while you locked in the sys’
The laws of the land got you caught in a twist
The laws of the land got you caught in a twist.

[Outro]
We’ve got to rise my people!
Rise my people!
I say rise my people!
