What America do you sing to?
not the America I live in
Do you sing America because every day
We still fight America
Do sing America when
You sit in the sun trying to get my color the very color that you
so do despise
Did you sign America?
When we picked, racked, and plowed
The fields of what is now
Did they sing America
When they walked the trail of tears
Did they sing while you sold there
Souls for profit stole, century of culture away
Bashed in the heads of hundreds
of babies with the heal of American boots
Cause you wanted to save bullets
rob, plunder, and burn their homes
Did you sing when you raped our women?
Beat our men, or loaded us upon ships
to be used as cattle
Did we sing?
God shines his grace on thee
On a selective few
Cause he didn't shine his damm grace
Upon I, Shleeam, Juan, Raquel, Uchie or Ms. Jones
America told us who god is to
be when they conformed our minds
So Jesus is god and Mother Mary is a St.
Who came to Africa and killed
In the name of God.
Cleanse the savage said America
Who killed the African God?
What happened to
Haile Selassie I, Alaha, Ra,
and other African Gods
And crown thine hood
Brotherhood of who?
The brotherhood of the
Fat cat's sitten on top Capital Hill
Embezzling money, wasting taxes
From sea to shining Sea
The only thing I see is our pages missing
in the history books
We fought for this land and died
for this land
received exclusion for our noble acts
Do you still wan to sing America?
