I TOSS MY PEOPLE UP TO SEE WHERE THEY LAND, ON TOP OF THIS MESS WE SHALL STAND.

SEE DEM POLICE BOI, DEM WANT FA CHASE I, BUT I NEVER RAN, ON TOP OF THIS MESS WE SHALL STAND.

MY HEART GOES OUT TO ALL BLACK PEOPLE ON THIS OUR LAND, ON TOP OF THIS MESS WE SHALL STAND.

WE RIGHT HERE AS “MEN”, LET’S PROMISE TO HAVE OUR WOMEN’S BACK AND TAKE HER HAND, ON TOP OF THIS MESS WE SHALL STAND.

LET’S US GUIDE OUR YOUNG AND KEEP THEM INBOUND AND AWAY FROM THE PLAN, ON TOP OF THIS MESS WE SHALL STAND.

CAN YOU HEAR ME AND DO YOU UNDERSTAND? ON TOP OF THIS MESS WE SHALL STAND.

YES WE BE OUT GUNNED AND EVEN OUT MANNED, ON TOP OF THIS MESS WE SHALL STAND.

    I salute you sir…You sure do know how to play with words and make them into something heartfelt and beautiful that speaks loud and clear.

  5. thank you very much and I really do enjoy playing with words when I can get a grasp of them. Believe it or not, I’m not really that good with words. The meaning, the speelings and such.
