Shackles

LYRIC

Shackles on our legs. Whips to the back of ya
Oh you mad - we giving it back to ya
We ain't seen freedom since we left Africa
To the mother land know im coming back for ya


Hand up - black lives matter
Look, the patterns in the data
I welcome you into the here after
No longer niggers we now masters
Fear no man fear no gavel
Just fear being chattel for the shadows
Dead man walking
Head inside the gallows
Headless like Ichabod Crane - sleepy hollow
And I know that's it's a hard pill to swallow
But they'd gladly put you on a boat home tomorrow
I'm not sorry, hardly ever am
The truth is self evident - I am just a man
They say the word is heaven sent - this is what I am
A lyricist with hope and vision fighting 'til the end
And I'ma keep it going 'til the earth is what I'm in
But let my music play until the sun don't rise again

Shackles on our legs. Whips to the back of ya
Oh you mad - we giving it back to ya
We ain't seen freedom since we left Africa
To the mother land know I'm coming back for ya
No - black - bodies
We just - want - black - lives
And if - you - want - peace
Stop - tellin - them - lies


Never will I ever give up heaven for the devil
Peek into the fire like yo get up on my level
Curse them damn liars making terrorists of rebels
Molotov cocktails, rocks, guns, pebbles
Ready for the battle turning Babel into rubble
Never been afraid swear I'm ready for the trouble
If you really want war just die
I am not about the talking
And i never been shy - spirit high
Do you hear it? Do you feel it? Just forfeit
Lyrically gorgeous. Mental is a fortress
I can’t even price it and you cannot afford it
Hip-hop died on the day it went corporate
Listen while I’m giving you the details of the portrait
The poor get nada - it's heaven up above when she holla
Living for a dollar. Forgiveness is a dream
The struggle living day to day enough to make you scream

Shackles on our legs. Whips to the back of ya
Oh you mad - we giving it back to ya
We ain't seen freedom since we left Africa
To the mother land know I'm coming back for ya
Shackles on our legs. Whips to the back of ya
Oh you mad - we giving it back to ya
We ain't seen freedom since we left Africa
To the mother land know I'm coming back for ya

No - black - bodies
We just - want - black - lives
And if - you - want - peace
Stop - tellin - them - lies
No - black - bodies
We just - want - black - lives
And if - you - want - peace
Stop - tellin - them - lies

No - black - bodies
We just - want - black - lives
And if - you - want - peace
Stop - tellin - them - lies
No - black - bodies
We just - want - black - lives
And if - you - want - peace
Stop - tellin - them - lies

Shackles on our legs. Whips to the back of ya
Oh you mad - we giving it back to ya
We ain't seen freedom since we left Africa
To the mother land know I'm coming back for ya
No - black - bodies
We just - want - black - lives
And if - you - want - peace
Stop - tellin - them - lies
