I
simply remember all these kinds of things And
then I don’t fear so bad Black…

rage is founded who fed us self hatred Lies
and abuse while we waited and waited Spiritual
treason This
grid and it's cages Black
rage was founded on these kinds of things Black

rage is founded on dreaming and draining Threatening
your freedom To
stop your complaining Poisoning
your water While
they say it's raining Then
call you mad For
complaining complaining, Old
time bureaucracy Drugging
the youth Black
rage is founded on blocking the truth Murder
and crime Compromise
and distortion Sacrifice
sacrifice, Who
makes this fortune Greed?
falsely, called progress Such
human contortion Black
rage is founded on these kinds of things So

when the dog bites And
the ceilings And
I’m feeling mad I
simply remember all these kinds of things And
then I don’t fear so bad Free

enterprise Is
it myth or illusion Forcing
you back into purposed confusion Black
human trafficking Or
blood transfusion Black
rage is founded on these kinds of things Victims
of violence Both
psyche and body Life
out of context IS living ungodly Politics
politics, Greed
falsely called wealth Black
rage is founded on denying of self Black
human packages Tied
and subsistence Having
to justify your very existence Try
if you must But
you can’t have my soul Black
rage is founded on ungodly control So
when the dog bites And
the beatings And
I’m feeling so sad I
simply remember all these kinds of things And
then I don’t feel so bad
