Night, descends, as the sun's light ends And black comes back, to blend again And with the depth of the sun Night blackness become one Blackness being you Peeping through the red, the white, and the blue Dreaming of bars, black civilizations that once florished and grew HEY! — WAKE UP, NIGGERS or y'all through! Drowning in the puddle of the white man's spit As you pause for some drawers in the midst of shit And ain't got nothing to save your funky-ass with! You cool, fool — sipping on a menthol cigarette 'round midnight Rapping about how the Big Apple is outta sight, when you ain't never had a bite Who are you fooling? Me, you Wake up, niggers or ya ALL through! In Uptown, two roaches are drowned in each other's piss In Downtown, interracial lovers secretly kiss While junkies are dreaming of total bliss Somewhere in the atmospheeeere, far away from heeeeere Beyond realms of white dimensions, gathered by suppressed intentions As their CRIES, cries, cries go unrecognized Except by their keeper, the Grim Reaper «SAVE ME!, «a carnity shout, as the lights go out 'cause you ain't paid your 'lectric bill And the rats and roaches move on in for the kill As your lips struggle the Grain, that last drought from the wine bottle And you roll snake eyes, never to realizing that you BLEW WAKE up, niggers or ya all through! Sitting in the corner with your minds tied to your behinds Bonafied members of Niggers Anonymous Never knowing which way you're going — pimpin' off life Turning tricks to slick dicks, with candy asses «All masses are behelding a mind mourning for the Late Great black maaaaaaan... (Ahhhhhhh-meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeen...) YOU NIGGERS UNDERSTAND?! UP AGAINST THE WALL Black male and farmers, are a-blow you away And you'll never live to see the light of day And the nightstick, the nightstick it glides GRACEFULLY upside yo' head That's right, brothers and sisters, YOU livin' dead When the cock crows, and the night goes And it saves your ass in the nick of time As you wake up and you start to find Yourself, laying up in bed — scratching your ass in hand Trying to remember where you recall this veneer nightmare That always leave you feelin' blue But you still can't place, The Man face, as hard as you try to HEY! — WAKE UP, NIGGERS OR WE ALL THROUGH!
