Lifesavas - Freedom Walk lyrics

Freedom Walking - Walk the talk
Real Recognize Real
Lifesavas, Dead Presidents -Worldwide Freedom Walk-, Vernon Reid, RBGs up

Yeah, you got to walk with me

(Chorus, x2)
Freedom walk
Walk the talk with me, walk with me
Everybody's still a prisoner
Walk with me
Walk the talk with me, walk with me

Step by step

(Verse I)
A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step
But it's not vote or die dog, it's freedom or death
Cuz without no struggle, there is no progress
We can't vote our way up out of this mess, we oppressed
My old ?? always tell me to pray
But a nigga need a vest these days
In the streets we the prey
And I can't eat no sermon, can't live no lecture, can't drive a scripture
We need food, clothes, and shelter
Is a million men walking, but where are we going?
When the leaders changing sides like the flip of a coin
Money talk, bullshit walk, that's what I heard
That's why we stay G'd up giving George Bush the bird
All I got is my balls and my word, real talk
But it's not just what you say, it's the way that you walk
I don't want to be that MC just talking the talk
I want freedom in my lifetime, cuz life is too short

(Chorus, x1 now)

(Verse II)
Remember strange fruit hung from the Mississippi tall trees
Nowadays brothers hang from their chains and car keys
These ghetto celebs, they sentenced to life
11th hour pardons give em back they civil rights
Freedom sound like when thunder be threatening to strike
But freedom don't come free, freedom comes with a fight
See we programming, fighting for freedom is treason
Free your mind and your cash will follow the reason
There's a black tomorrow, being a slave is in season
Even freedom of speech aint free
When you got beef with me, better let beats be bygones
Cuz you don't decide whose side death will ride on
My people, black people, Muslim to Mason
Rastifari, Christain, we facing
A nation shamed for the sweet thrill of killing
The face of a black man is free blood spilling
Little children inherit scars of hatred
Clubs spit whip, ?? stripped naked
Erase that shame ?, son we love being black
Now walk that talk when we be screaming that

(Chorus, x1)

(Verse III)
Black Malcolm when he went back to Africa
Let me show you what I just was a captive of
And if I pop ja?, homie I can back it up
Every day a new way that's spectacular
We fighting two wars, internal and external
I'm on the front line in my camouflage thermal
Shooting at the other side, I'm on a spiritual high
Ready to ride or die, either way I'ma fly
Any way you want to put it, I'ma be in the sky
Amongst the stars, so the world will remember who we are
Give thanks and praise, and be humble in your ways
Till your dying days, If you afraid you fade away
Better walk like a Zulu Shaka, Tupac Amaru
Scream warrior if somebody asks who are you
Better yet, ask them what side is they reppin
And if they start stuttering, tell them to keep stepping

(Chorus, x1)

(Verse IV)
Let the prison gates swing open for the innocent men inside
Black genocide, it's so called justice
A system corrupted, won't admit it
How many locked down just cuz they looked like the nigger that did it?
Inmates wait years for parole hearings and such
We on the outside, trying hard to get locked up
We need ya all on the street for when we rebel
The backbone of the revolution,
it won't do us no good from a cell
When freedom walk, it shut down Washington with a speech
Walk without a bus ride for over 54 weeks
Force the issue
Us gotta support us is ours for the taking
Cuz freedom don't come with an invitation
Demand it, shoot give ?? for it
Let em riot and sue for it
Woman and man, but let's plan to get property
Hush that corner buffoon mockery
Now is the season, by any means freedom

(Chorus, x2)
Walk with me

If you afraid to tell the truth
Then you don't even deserve your freedom
