Akeen – Haitian Revolution lyrics

So it started before it started
Cause slavery was reason
Didnt like infected wounds
Or the whipping and the beating
Maroons went
To mountains to plan to weaken
Ones who put us through hell
And treated us like heathens
Blood was shed from
The heads of the beheaded
But we knew it had to happen
Cause we knew we were headed
To Revolution
Ask me
Thats the only solution
For this all to end
And get the right resolution
Boukman was first
The spearhead of it all
Importance of
Spiritual in rise or fall
That led him to his demise
So then came Toussaint
He was more liberal
His only constraint
He died in prison
Dessalines moved in
The radical to finish
You ain't tougher than him
Now because of that
Haitis the first black Republic
Second free nation
Thats known to the public
