LYRICS:

on the good ship
JESUS
lawd please
it was 4 score
7 more
hells kitch
@
heavens door
moors
can tell the tale
of when our bodies
hit the seas
truth
before strange fruit swung
vertically
from that poplar tree
before Socrates
PLEASE
allow me just a minute
of your time
as I
die-sect
this f*ckin legacy
of n*ggas
spades
pickaninnies
jigga-boos
and
coons
spearchuckers
n*gga lovers
love
a
n*gga
so
who's
BLACK
when
BLACK
was just a
social construct
the foundations
for plantation labor
birth of a nation
facing
itself
to gain wealth
RACE
was created
but God shaped it
as
sacred
then
YALL
named it as
hatred
wait a minute
mulatto
tinted
mixing
pigment
with
MASSA
seed scattered
that's why
BLACK LIVES DONT MATTER
n*gga
I AM WE
I tell my daughters
and my son
U
see
a race
is
just
some
sh*t
that you run

#weaintblack

VERSE 2:

Our brothers
fathers
mothers
daughters
crossed waters
lost name
seeded
old world order
wrought by a
HOLLOW - COST
cost ( cost )
less than
some
quarters
and since
we couldn't go
back
they called us
BLACK
the only cure for
hardened
slaughter hollas
is
tomorrow
our AFRICAN roots
are fragments
restrain
past tense
masked
accent
so OUR
brothers
from
the MOTHERLAND
see US as
carbon copies
is
my
KEMET
pigment
IGNT( ignorant )
sloppy
sex machine
milk
cocky
BLACK
and
NEGRO
replaced
GODLY
melanotic body
one drop
of
SUN
semen
turned the skin
BROWN
raised in the south
get down
get down
I'm
INDIGEOUS
X
on
BLOOD
ground
not
an antonym
for
WHITE
when
my darkness
growls
loud
BUT
why
U
neva
hear
JAMES ( Brown )
say
HE
BLACK
and
PROUD

about

The Cornel West Theory Washington D.C., D.C.

The Cornel West Theory is a band born in the belly of the beast, Washington DC. inspired by the struggles of DC's ghettoes, Hip Hop, and the center of world politics, our music is rooted in hip hop, but smashed into a firebrand sound containing elements of punk, go-go, blues, jazz, and industrial noisescapes. No one genre can define or contain us. This is Type 1 music. ... more
