It Was Written

This song is by Dead Prez and appears on the Mixtape Turn Off The Radio (2002).

And it was written
Up in the book of lights
There's and mansion and your forever more
And it was written
Up in the book of lights
There's and mansion and your forever more

Well did you know the pen was stronger than the knife
And they can kill you once but they can't kill you twice
Did you know destruction of the flesh is not the ending to life
Fear not of thee anti-Christ
Did you know that I exist before the earth
And did you know my eyes are windows to the world
Did you know you can't go a Zion and a wear jerry curls
Can't tell the boys from the girls
Ya body just a vehicle transporting your soul
It's what inside the people is beauty to behold
Fear not of evil
Everyday them fleshed growed
Changes of the times they get told

And it was written
Up in the book of lights
There's and mansion and your forever more
And it was written
Up in the book of lights
There's and mansion and your forever more

Me say me want
Freedom, justice, equality
As it was written on the book of lights and sociality
Me want fa big up Marcus Garvey say me big up Huey P
Me na want no brutality in a me reality

I can see it in the signs everyday I live
Its clear to ma mind somthin getta give
The system is the problem but it ain't just gonna change
The people got to fight as one and break free from the chains
We livin' in a time where whitey got us corned
Shackles on the brain police on every corner
They lookin' for some soldiers but they so hard to find
My elders say be patient cause things come in time
Not fast enough because

They want fa rewrite ma history and make the motherland a mystery
'Cause we to strong fa them to dis we
Because if it wasn't how it is then it would definitely be
Because the days is up
Blaze it up
AFRICAN WARRIOR raise it up
Push it up
Fill up ya cup
We had enough so we're gonna buck
Now is the time open ya mind
Then you will find it's a design
You matter what you do no one can stop the time
Don't want no KKK no CIA no brutality
Ghetto youths and RBG we ridin' fa liberty
Been here before the start still here after it's over
And its written in the heart of every soldier

And it was written
Up in the book of lights
There's and mansion and your forever more
And it was written
Up in the book of lights
There's and mansion and your forever more
