It’s time for us to take a stand, all African American man. We’ve been lied to for way too long (start the revolution). They enslaved our ancestors to build this land, now it’s time for us to take our stand.
We need to STOP selling drugs to our brothers and sisters, God knows we’re killing each other; we need one another to help in this struggle. Great martyrs have died, someone tell me why! Black men Rise~~~~~ Rise~~~~~ Rise~~~(fade)
Ooh ooh black men Rise up, it’s time to take our rightful place. Ooh ooh black men Rise up, you know we are the first race. The prophecy has been told, now it’s time to uphold; put spiritual water in your cup and black men Rise up.
Bob Marley sung a redemption song, Marvin Gaye said: “what’s going on” we’ve heard the message of truth, time is far overdue. The future of our youth is at hand, black men come take your stand.
I’ll give my life, trying to fight, for black men to unite. Let’s teach our children the truth, so they may know our roots. Teach them of the motherland (Africa) and the mystery of God’s plan, now stand up all black American men!!!
ooh ooh black men Rise up, it’s time to take your rightful place. Ooh ooh black men Rise up, you know we are the first race. The prophecy has been told, now it’s time to uphold. Put spiritual water in your cup, and black men Rise up.
