sima lee – what is freedom? lyrics

Loading...

[sima lee: verse 1]
this land is not your land, this land is taino
inuit, mexican, turtle island
africans was kidnapped by the white man
who were settlers not immigrants
now you wanna flight plan, tell me that’s not ignorance
my diligence keeps me militant
the us presidents, they was always terrorists
the pigs chase us so much we stays h+lla fit
pour out the liquors for the dead and then the l is split
they bust the shotty in his chest when his mama cried
now tell me what is freedom when we always traumatized
i watch a boy bleed through right in front of me
the life expectancy for black youth is troubling
at times we’re stumbling show me where the money be
ain’t in our bank accounts but corporations bubbling
what is freedom?

come with me as my ligaments dip through tenements
where ignorance is bliss and braille but still not feeling it
what the h+ll the cells so filled with pigmentation
still operating as plantations
i’m from virginia where ain’t ish to do but burn the plantation down
for the overseers come and leave your mans facing down
hit the underground amtrak, you call it a railroad
we just want that land back, supremacist’s nemesis
won’t let us prosper but keep it proper, drink your water
and clean your choppers, see actors quick to notice if you have a cloudy chakra
be hunting all the rich folk but not up in your opera
fist up in the air, bullets in the chamber
kings sniping black messiahs trying to stop them in their mangers
what is freedom?
[hook]
i can’t explain with so much pain it’s weighing heavy on my mind
put us in chains and then you wonder why we’re running out of time
i want my babies to be free so they can glow and they can shine
freedom for me and mine, freedom for you and i

[sima lee: verse 2]
they’ll never take me alive although they try with their 45
but me no worry my ancestors got me fortified
my little homie caught 45
but that’s ok cause we gonna set sail and set you free when the water’s high
told you before we ain’t marching no more
prisons in paris burning learning we ready for war
sure, the garcon, maroons, the mau mau, the seminole
the yamacet, the ghost dance, the pow wow
the gullers, the reparation, repatriation
then we dropping, mili raw when we get our liberation
what is freedom?

[hook]
i can’t explain with so much pain it’s weighing heavy on my mind
put us in chains and then you wonder why we’re running out of time
i want my babies to be free so they can glow and they can shine
freedom for me and mine, freedom for you and i
