Oh yeah
Oh no
Oh yes

was born & raised on the same plantation
N the United States of the red, white & blue
never knew that was different
Till Dr. King was on the balcony
Lyin' N a bloody pool
Expected so much more from a loving
A loving, loving society
A truthful explanation but U know what?
got another, another conspiracy

If it was just a dream
Call me, call me a dreamer 2

With more rewards & accolades
Than any1 b4 or after
21st century, oh what a shame, what a shame
That race, huh, race still matters
A race 2 what & where we goin'?
We R N the same boat
But 'm the only 1 rowin'

Last time checked U were sleepin'
Hmph, but U can call me a dreamer 2


Peanut butter logic
Served on a bed of lies
Don't go down 2 easy
When U seein' ur father cryin'
Have U ever clutched the steering wheel of ur car 2 tight?
Prayin' that the police sirens just pass U by that night
While the helicopter circles & the theory's gettin' deep
Think they're sprayin' chemicals over the city while we sleep?

From now on 'm stayin' awake
So U can call me a dreamer 2
Aw, got 1 eye open 4 the separatist fool
Oh yeah! Oh yeah no!
Help me! Whoo!
C'mon, c'mon!

Wake up
Please wake up
So what's it feel like?
What's it feel like?
U must B kidding
It's time 2 wake up
Wake up, wake up

I pledge allegiance 2...
