Can You See It Now?


Trading resources for paper, what a joke


Something that would make you want to have all the smoke



A brother said they built a white man’s company on black soil


Makes you look at your trials differently when you see their toil



We live in a society that isn’t real


Hypes up the artificial to act like it’s something you can feel



But shouldn’t a feeling be attributed to something tangible


Giving you medicine for the pain to make it more manageable



The problem with our people is we like the dream


But seeing the truth makes you realize nothing is what it seems



A country founded by liberated slaves


Still has people working on a plantation for little to no money most of their days



The Most High is exposing the real problem within


He’s showing us that greed is such a hurtful sin



Because you’re willing to sacrifice the ones you should love


Thinking that what you have just isn't enough



When we start taking responsibility for our faults


Accepting that with The Most High’s love we were bought



Our identity doesn’t amount to a white man’s name


Wake up and see the truth, we’re the pawns in the game



What will it take for us to unify


Maybe another civil war to open up your eyes



But even that didn’t prove to be enough


Our people fought and died and all for what



To continue in this cycle of oppression


We literally own nothing, did you get the lesson


All YAH wants from us true repentance


Maybe then He will end our lengthy sentence
