I'd be like water
Slaughtering earthly ways
Eroding all organic decay
To rebuild our life like new clay/
On bedrock from outer-spaced sources

I'd fall down a cavern of heated extremes
Sweatin' dreams of memories
Exhausting my enemies thoughts
Floatin' to the surface to breathe

Smiling heavily within myself
Laughin' within my head immensely
Trippin' on my giggled words
Hoping that no one heard me cry

I am not ashamed of my history
My past is well beyond the numbered trees
4000 years compared to that of 150 years ago
I tread thin water between what I don't and do know

I awoke yesterday
To kick light like tommorow
I feel what I think
Therefore I'm thinking positive energy
I'm building my nation from a seed
So that the branches will not sway/
in polluted air collecting oiled water

I keep wanting to put up my defense
Standing in a crowd of "who-sayers"
Spraying me with ill spit
Throwing me out with filthy skits

Our sisters and brothers are selling out to money
shaking/Fast-money-famed dreams that just won't quit
Until they get burned out by new flames of tomorrow

I want more than what's revealed
I want
I don't want your signature on a new deal
I want
All I want is to be heard just like you
My dreams I like to reveal
There is no set in my ways
