Length: 5mins

Professional or beginner doesnt matter

Every sinner is a prisoner in a body that is subject to time

Now my entwined mind tries to form a straight line

Not like twised scoliosis of the spinal chord

Construct

Cross eyed carpenters are cuttin' crooked lines

Can't construct

Man-made shrines when the winds and the water move sands of time

Many minds on a deadline, yet live life like a live wire

I'm not tired!

Of blood and fire

Spirit's moving higher than the green grass ever lifted me

Spirit's moving higher...

Than anything else ever lifted you

Mm, see

We got spirituality

It's living in us like one in three

Injustice is concerning me

In the non-linear eternity

I'm speaking paradoxically

But you can nod your head now when you understand me-e-e-ee...

This is for my free men

Whose backs won't bend in the lions den

Now with their eyes on the ending

This is for my free women!

They fight with their love

The bearers of our children

Free men whose backs won't bend in the lions den

Now with their eyes on the ending

This is for my free women

They fight with their love

The bearers of our children

We shine like lights exposing

What lies underneath decomposing

Unearth those chains that are rusted

My sweet Lord, is that what i trusted in?

That sin? That tomfoolery? Ugh!

What it is is mental jewelery that I adorned myself with

The enemy's gifts, the man-made myths, the ignorant bliss

Of marijuana spliffs and alchoholic fifths

I got so sick and tired of it

Delivered and redeemed

By christ i mean

It's time to start livin'

And get a reason for the rhyme

I dont wanna be dead-wrong on the deadline

Standing on the dark side and all out of time...

Like a blind pantomime's fantasize

Climb up his own ladder to the sunshine

Nothin's mine

That hasn't been given

No one's alive here

That hasn't been risen

For 19 years i was trapped in a prison

Feeding my escape by means of derision

But every man-made attempt just failed

When trapped in a jail

Of my own guilt, shame, and iniquity

I was looking for freedom

How'd I find freedom?

Oh! Oh, freedom...

From all of this

He said believe

He said believe

Who are you telling me to belei-e-eve... yea

'Said I'm the Christ

Oh!

...he said I'm the Christ

So I believed

Freedom!
