Intro:
(Aneka)
You say they came and they took all we have possessed
They that have to take the abuse that they have caused
Our present state with their intruding history…

Verse 1:
(Wisdom Simone)
We the reason willows weep uprooted like a lifeless tree
Lost our identity by force of plank across the open seas
Grand Turk, Dobson, and Jesus brought us to shores as merchandise
Weakest of our nation enslaved, traded as corn or rice
No deity, no dignity was spoiled of all of that
My ahkuth was sold as mammie’s by massa forced on their backs
My ahky was robbed of manhood, words held to tongue for fear
Wife plump with Satan’s seed, manifest in labor’s tears
Branches of backs’ trees told stories of attempted freedoms
Murdered and maimed any man with hope within to free us
Ain’t no place like home, we was stolen like Dorothy’s shoes
Grasping for our history, ‘cause our enemy, he knows no rue
Now we sell like Swift in Madison for Square fame
With no understanding of purpose so we’re carelessly slain
Runnin’ circles like a class pet, tryna be a class act
Curriculum not yours and you wonder why you held back
Land nourished by our blood, limbs strength gained from bodies
Strange fruit tainting the wind tryna choke to hope inside us
Tryna wipe us off the aratz, we way too strong for that
Backed by Alahym we stand so know we got our bearings back


Hook:
(Aneka)
Lied to us, blinded enslaved us, misplaced us
Strengthen us, hardened us then they replaced us
Now we got to learn from the pain
(Wisdom Simone)
Truth Hurt, real eyes recognize real lies
(Aneka)
Now it’s time for us to gain some recognition
(Wisdom Simone)
Yahudym stand up!
(Aneka)
If we stop blaming, we could get a better condition
Wake up world

Verse 2:
(J. Rich)
Real eyes recognize real lies
They tried to wipe us off of the map we still thrive
From the time of Masha and U Alah Shamuth
To Herod when he took the boys all under two
Of the Abarym the plan's in motion who can stop it
Ordained of Alahym it was written in the prophets
YaramYahu verse 15 chapter 31
Rachel weeping, blood leaking when they murked her sons
It's burdensome, mothers still crying ain't nothing changed
2016 Slavery by another name
And even though you're not physically cuffed in chains
Your mind's shackled you lack truth and covet things
Run with gangs and let fire from the gun exchange
Reject the only son who came down to come and save
Stop tryna penny pitch, raise ya hands clinch ya fists
Black Pride and break the syndrome of Willie Lynch


Hook:
(Aneka)
Lied to us, blinded enslaved us, misplaced us
Strengthen us, hardened us then they replaced us
Now we got to learn from the pain
(Wisdom Simone)
Truth Hurt, real eyes recognize real lies
(Aneka)
Now it’s time for us to gain some recognition
(Wisdom Simone)
Yahudym stand up!
(Aneka)
If we stop blaming, we could get a better condition
Wake up world

Outro:
(Aneka)
Now it’s time for us to gain some recognition
