Wake Up Call

Do you remember at all what Malcolm and Martin died for?
So our black sister wouldn't have to be called a Whore.
So we can walk strong and proud through the front door
Without our blood being spilled all over the damn floor!

Or do you really think that our heroes of the past
died so we could shackle our brain using dope,
and walk around with our pants fallen off our ass,
Discarding our brothers and sisters like old trash
Sellin' our souls for a video pose and a little cash!
