up way past my bed time
f it I’m in my prime
hours creep by like tumbleweeds
i’m riding on the energy of the winds

of a past life filled with whens
filled with wins
that we’re committed with lessons
taught by the shackles ofoppression

we work harder than we’ve been ground black
harder than we’ve been browned black
and with a sincerity true like heart attacks

fueled by lost ones
i am a lost son
falling short of those lost sons
who never had one

so complacency is shunned
we’ve come so far
look what we’ve done
only to get to the end and realize
the race has just begun
