Sirens in the night... a sad lullaby
Try to dignify the tears a people cry
Keeping up faces, saying that the races get along
And the story goes on
Brought to this country in the bowels of a boat
Chained like chattel collars on our throat
Names were changed to deceive the proud.
Swahili not allowed
Made you a nigger in a crowd
Long ago we realized this was not our home
But we can't go back cause our home is gone
Pharoahs of a different kind but the same
A master is a master even if you change the names
The whips fell hard on the backs. CRACK!
But deep inside we knew there'd be a comeback
Hung on a tree by the neck til you die because
you let a white woman cross your eye
Or opened your mouth spoke truth to the lie
You got to go
The truth can kill a man dont ya know
Praying to God, wishin to stars, rollin the dice
every now and then we'd lash out. STRIKE!
Friends are hard to get, hard to hold
When your brain's in chains
from when you're 8 days old. The insanity.
Bigotry... the worst profanity
The paranoia, pain and pride
I still don't know what I feel inside

.
CHORUS: HOWL
............The pain from the whips
............HOWL
............For those who died on the ships
............HOWL
............Who were rounded up in the night.
............HOWL
............Never to see the light
............HOWL
............Who were stopped at the gate
............HOWL
............For profits made from hate
............HOWL
............Our people stripped of their pride
............HOWL
............Who hanged and burned and cried

.
Sirens in the night...a sad lullaby.
Try to dignify the tears a people cry
We built the pyramids but we didn't enlist.
Paid with the lash and the fist
Dismissed from Rome to Spain
From the human race
A ghost with no face
Livin' in the crunch
For the czar we were lunch
Slipped out
Beat the Reaper to the punch
Came over like baggage... stupid with fear
That's how I got here
Sirens in the night
Washed away
Generations of hope
Forever to melt like soap
Barcoded for death with fuckin' tatoos
History endorsed it and twisted the screws.
Back on the run. Never had a chance
Could cater the party but not allowed to dance
If you fight you're a pig, if you don't you burn
After 2,000 years what did we learn?
Paranoia, pain and pride
I still don't know all I feel inside

.
CHORUS
.
Two great peoples grew in parallel lines
Their fates combined and crossed like vines
The two most hated people on earth
Hate like a habit... clings like a curse
Hate like a magnet creepin' like dragnet
Rust on the intellect. Played. EJECT!
Teaching bullshit will just infect
A degree does't give bullshit respect.
The natural family... African and Jew
defeats insanity props where they're due
The bullshit is through
