Home of the Slave

 

 

Land of the free? Home of the brave?

Man this like an autobiography of a runaway slave

Lived with one foot out on the bricks, and one in a cage

Man when you stop to think about it, yea they one in the same

 

With or without the chains, this life drives you insane

Seeing your own brother would sell you out, for a pocket of change

For a medallion and chain, he’ll pop a hole in your brain

All while he saying don’t hate the player, hate on the game

 

But we’re all being played, just like the lottery 

Yea the game of life’s rigged, just like a slot machine

Got everyone chasing the bag, so they can cop a dream

Everybody hooked on GWAP, I just sit and watch them fiend 

 

It don’t matter if you’re a drop out, or you’re ivy league 

Everybody pays, cause nothing in this life is free

Living in misery or in the lap of luxury

There’s only one guarantee, you getting charged astronomical fees 

 

(Chorus)

In the land of the greedy, the home of the slave

Where they will work you to death, for a minimum wage

Where they take from the needy, lock the poor in a cage

Send you to fight for freedom, but nobody gets away

 

In the land of the greedy, the home of the slave

Where they’ve broken every peace treaty, that they’ve ever made

The land of the greedy, the home of the slave

Where they send you to die for freedom, yet there ain’t no escape

 

 

Corporate America is nothing but a modern day slave plantation 

Instead of picking cotton, they got us picking occupations 

You can work in the fields, of law and education 

Architecture, finance, business or entertainment 

 

Instead of pork and grits, now they feed you little pay checks 

instead of slave quarters now they got us up in housing tenements 

Where we’re only objects, a means to produce profits

Hell even higher crime rates, mean a rise in the stock market

 

Instead of masters, now we have bosses 

Instead of the big house, we have corporate offices 

Instead of slave hunters, now we have police officers

Dead or alive it don’t matter, they even profit off our corpses 

 

Now you can pay a small fortune for some college courses 

To get auctioned off to the highest paying owner

Get a signing bonus, maybe some life insurance 

And a paid vacation with some flights to Europe 

 

But your life isn’t yours though, you are bought and paid for

Nah this isn’t what we was created for 

We are so much more, made in the likeness of God

You be saying that you’re woke, but I can hear you snore

 

Won’t wake up, till FEDS kick in your doors

Like the notorious B.I.G. waving the four four

Man I have freed a thousand slaves, could have freed a thousand more

If only they knew that they were slaves, from the day they was born

 

(Chorus 2x’s)

In the land of greedy, the home of the slave

Where they will work you to death, for a minimum wage

Where they take from the needy, lock the poor in a cage

Send you to fight for freedom, but nobody gets away

 

In the land of the greedy, the home of the slave

Where they’ve broken every peace treaty, that they’ve ever made

The land of the greedy, the home of the slave

Where they send you to die for freedom, and there ain’t no escape

 

 

 

The song has been up and running for a couple of weeks now. It's getting about as much attention as I expected. You can't sugarcoat the truth and when it's served in high doses forget about it. Bottom line is the very day the track was released I sent it to a dear comrade of mine who is very active in the struggle. His immediate feedback was all that I needed. Nothing anyone else has to say about this track and it's content means anything. Unfortunately if you don't get what is being said, you are more than likely a victim of exactly what is being talked about. It's one thing to be a slave but know it. It's a totally different thing to be a slave yet being clueless or even worse liking your circumstances like some house negro like Malcolm X once spoke on. 

 The track isn't meant to ridicule or belittle anyone. The track is meant to bring about awareness, to shed light. To become enlightened on a current situation is the first step towards eradicating said situation. It is said that the TRUTH shall set you free. Let it be said that my intention was, is to free ONE person. Of course the more the merrier but if I can open the eyes of just one individual than all the work that went into this project is worth it

 Becoming aware of the facts stated in this track, is the half the battle won. It is the first step towards actually thinking for yourself and exercising your true free will. Just so you know being able to choose from 100 different kinds of breakfast cereals, or being able to choose what PROGRAM to watch out of the 50 some odd channels you may have is not freedom, nor freedom of choice. Understand the current game of life, is like playing cards with a rigged deck. Or like playing dice when the bones are loaded. You are playing to lose! The house always wins.

 I am surely not the only one that sees the world for what it is. More and more people are waking up to realization that they aren't truly FREE! Being "woke" is one thing. I am talking about being enlightened here. I am talking about BEING and living consciously, gaining and having full knowledge of self. Knowing who you are and why you are. Because slaving for someone else's benefit, is not why we are trust me. Anyway as I have said: You can lead a fool to the truth, but you can't make him think. What do you THINK about that? 

 Though this track isn't burning up the charts it was selected as a project by a student attending community college in North Carolina. The fact that a professor will be reading into what I have written is like going gold for me. I may just have to post an update when the student receives his grade for his midterm final project.

 

 It only takes a spark to start a prairie fire and this track right here is definitely a spark and NO, we don't need no water! ThanX for reading.
