Blue Scholars

Blue Scholars - Opening Salvo

rate me

Now, it's the opening salvo

Where poet's scope the people like Mohammad and Malvo

A sample of the battle we wagered against an animal

Made to snuff us out like the wick of a candle

And all the youth dressed in camo, we're ready to handle

And no this war was not scripted, can't change the channel

We canceling all subscriptions, this is the last issue

When the casket closed can't take the cash with you

No most-mortem residuals

We individuals who

Indivisible become the most invincible

But that is not the issue at hand

We demand the simple right to question y'all people

Where the fuck is freedom at?

It's all we ask but instead we get our asses

Assassinated fast

If they catch you talking trash

Then the first shall be last

It's time to prepare

Black clouds, sky falling, put a hand in the air

And my people building monuments to weather the flood

I'm a leave how I came screaming covered in blood

Died once born twice both times we knuckled up

Along side our people we gon struggle with love

So struggle with love, struggle with love, struggle with love

Now this here's for those who choose fights whose fruits might

Never not ripen until after they life

It's not right how they martyr our leaders and target our children

Disrespect the sisters and wonder why we militant

Peace to my third world equivalent

Even if I can't fight beside you

I write what I can

To get our fam in other lands to understand your pain

Cause your beef is mine and we one and the same

And I know about this privilege

But if you're from where I'm from

Then you know a bigger burden comes with it

And that's what I carry when you see me on a hustle

I talking as a walking document of our struggle

Kasambas? hold me down and remember that I love you

And Johnny hold your head up if they ever take me from you

And please tell him that I tried, don't cry

Cause no matter where you are, a struggle's near by

And my people building monuments to weather the flood

I'm a leave how I came screaming covered in blood

Died once born twice both times we knuckled up

Along side our people we gon struggle with love

So struggle with love, struggle with love, struggle with love

Right now I want to thank God for being me

My soul won't rest until the colony is free

1896 revolution incomplete

Silence is defeat my solution is to speak

Resurrect a legacy of martyrs I beseech

Time to choose a side it's the might vs. the meek

My big brother Free brought the word from the East

Where the bullet in the middle of the belly of the beast

Hey
