One Life One Love (Hieroglyphics)

Energy that we exchange is imperative Intricate so simple Life is the spirit and the body is the temple One Life One Love Tell me this are you prepared to live Energy that we exchange is imperative Intricate so simple Life is the spirit and the body is the temple One Life One Love All they seen was one hand bust through the white sand Illuminating the land with liberation And mysterious, ferociously, serious black man Experience the urban warfare of fully strapped assault As an angel hoping my benevolence will change you Singing folklore of the poor Natural born warrior Since the days of Spain was ruled my the Moors Then again, before your existence Imhotep The presenter of the mystics Geometry, trigonometry statistics It's simplitics embedded in my bloodline Just like the pain of my forefathers The chains of slavery remains Behaviors we obtained in days that we were slained and tortured Tormented and scorned Shackles on my feet, feeding me pork Lashes on my back, lost my family Not to belittle the middle passage calamity I gotta make decisions Cause I keep havin' visions of flight bombing politicians On some midnight marauder missions It gets harder They shut down your energy, cut off your water Close the gas station, food supply shortened Dying of starvation and smoke ventilation I'm coming realer than you fairytale killers We disciplined, that's why no militias can get with us Sure, shot hit us from a thousand meters away All day Tomorrow, what you gonna do? Your past is haunting you You know what, I'ma tell as I'm sipping on this brew You know it's wrong and true So what you gonna do? The truth is long overdue 2X I'm talking bout Demolitions, ammunition No more propositions or petitions Seditions met with lynchings and whippings But they won't crush my wishes into submission Foresight courtesy of 3rd Eye Vision Tells me hit 'em Get 'em before they first force strike Meet in the black of the night Dodging ghetto pterodactyl lights Bring the full gats and precious metals if you true dat Get wise with medical supplies Conceptualize and plan Or get caught with your ass wide open And not get to ask "Why", I'm hoping you hear And I'm hoping your here For the millennium season opener I keep ample degrees up my sleeve For brothers who no longer breathe No reprieves Nothing but memories to retrieve Black babies disease Stomachs distended, arms out stretched For any care extended This is the flock to which I am attended But I'll do it I'm committed, commending All commandants vowing to be uncommon Fuck the promenade Underground and granite-strong, granted The path is jagged and long And we look raggied But I want more than this wall at my back in days Back we would have been mobile It's time to make power moves And put the all in all-powerful, all in all I can't close my eyes And I would be a coward too And so would you, so sir Are yor scared?, no sir I see answers to irradiate Eradicate this cancer They won't catch me playing patty cake with hands up You might catch me spraying But I think you better get them flight masks up I'm ready Yeah, ah huh One Life One Love Tell me this are you prepared to live? I'm ready I'm ready
