about

This is my wife's favorite song from the first album and it might become yours too, enjoy the tale of so many ages deceived by their uninformed predecessors

lyrics

Hands of Time
If only I could turn back the hands of time
I would ask Abraham what was on his mind
Putting all my people’s lives on the line
But I can’t so I wrote this to ease my mind
If only you could turn back and press rewind
Relive every moment that you have in your mind
You could take your regrets and make them fine
But you can’t so I hope this will ease your mind (Chorus)
Spinal tap vertebrae draw the fluid
They want us pacified I’m exposin you to it
Freedom its our right but really not conducive
To life in a system when we breed to consume shit
Before we ever leave the womb life’s a tomb
Of products designed for gender specific rooms
For boys there’s building blocks in baby blue
A pink tiara for your princess they got that too
Training school begins before kindergarten
With a brand new rockin cradle or have you forgotten
Brand new life equals brand new cotton
Remember the seeds of America’s trees are rotten
Whatever I’m doin breathe truth into it
Shock them onlookers with their safe distance viewin
Forget the shepherds and what they claim to be doin
Cause everything around us is bathed in confusion
(Chorus)
Nursery rhymes in the reverse order
Deprogram the brainwashed are my orders
As a child I would always push the social borders
Singin Christmas songs in the middle of august
I didn’t want toys I wanted less chores
Wash the dishes scrub the tub sweep the floors
And no TV before I’d go outdoors
Now this has stayed with me and my life don’t pause
Play all day long like a work song charter
Magnet school I’m attracting good karma
My past mistakes become my future’s armor
I’m protected by Yahweh, Allah, Buddha, and Dharma
Divide and be conquered or unify them all
They separate the stories and feed us the fall
Tell us before we can walk we have to crawl
But the universe is yours you just have to call
(Chorus)
Are you going to buy into system or will it buy into you?
We complain that they holding us down but who’s who?
They could be you it’s all a point of view
Perspectives prove that there are many lanes to choose
So don’t get bruised too badly by opinions
My influence makes it better for my children
So I enter this to lift your hands to the ceiling
Until we’re all so hot from Hip-hop we’re kneeling
Peeling at layers of truth until it hurts
Give me back my skin my religion my church
When I was young other kids would call me Lurch
But now I’m respected because of my girth
Wide body of knowledge experience is key
Before me lies a vast sea of possibility
The expanse of which most of my peers will never see
Just ask yourself a question do I work for them or for me?
Ask yourself a question do I work for them or for me?
Ask yourself this question do I work for them or for me?
Emancipated…
Emancipated…
Emancipated.
(Chorus) ©
