300 Days of Summer

Another summer spent on searching for solutions
Another summer spent preparing for the revolution
As eye experience my inner evolution
Praying to my ancestors to see the conclusion

Lately we took some major casualties
Lately we've experienced major catastrophes
We continue to change profile pictures
As they kill us off casually
As eye find myself asking me
Constantly are we truly free?

Poisoned sons and daughters from contaminated Flint water
Oblivious to the New World Order as we're set to be slaughtered
Privatized prisons are disproportionately incarcerating our fathers
Life grows sufficiently harder as we fail to be critically smarter

Not fully aware we're powerful as a nation
Elites are intimidated by our liberation
We've really ran out of patience
Because of our resistance of being annihilated
Time has come to take our rightful place
Time has come once again to be great

It isn't a coincidence
Liquor stores across the street from gun shops
Black people being abducted from bus stops
Off guard by the sound of gunshots
Being disenfranchised in such a tight spot
Reality is not a coincidence

In the back of my mind
There will come a time
Eye have to grab a "9" of the dresser
Because race soldiers have me under pressure

As eye put fear aside eye realize eye have nothing to be scared of
Never be afraid to grab the throat of your oppressor and apply pressure

Eye can see the agenda hidden deeply in disguise
It's not a surprise that eye see the hatred in their eyes

For "400" years we've been the victims
Trapped in such an oppressive system
They disrupt our way of profound living
Then use their privilege to play the victim

It's foul they had the audacity
To challenge the greatness of our tenacity
We can see the tension of their envy
Because they hate what they wish they could be
