Pot Roots of My Creation

Salaam Alaikum, hola, or hello
Donít matter to I,
Thereís no color to a manís soul
Some of us were born, with money to spend
And others were born, with plastic spoon in hand
I canít afford no silver, Iím struggling to live
You talk about money, but really itís funny
Back in the day we used to know whatís happening


I canít find the answer to the problems that Iím facing.
Spend my days running, searching for the roots of my creation.
Yeah, the roots of my creation, roots of my creation


I rhyme nice and Iíll say so much.
My tongueís sharper than the knife Cain was Able to clutch.
Like Moses Iím taking the people on an exodus.
I donít mean to preach, but knowledge is what Iím aiming to bust.
And no, Iím never resting. I want to be like Gandhi, a vehicle for the message.
I speak of equality like Selassie, and for as long as thereís a breath in my body,
Thereís no stopping me. Whereís the unity? Weíre all one people like Pangaea
Thatís the idea, but people seem to forget.
Why gay marriage is still illegal is something I donít get.
They say itíll ruin the sanctity, as if there was any left.
The government man will only tell lies,
He will sensationalize, but we must arise.
Itís a problem of policy that makes the youth distrust police.
Theyíre supposed to protect and serve the people.
Not the purpose of the wicked and evil.
Itís got to stop, like a urine drop.
Invasion of the peopleís privacy,
To control the publicís priorities.
Weíre the revolution.
From Tokyo all the way to Houston, it starts.
Letís burn it down, take part.


I canít find the answer to the problems that Iím facing.
Spend my days running, searching for the roots of my creation.
Yeah, the roots of my creation, roots of my creation


Letís roll one up; I got King Solomonís wisdom.
One for those held in camps in concentration,
And one for those working the plantations,
And one for my people, facing poverty and starvation

Pretty damn good.
It manages to get the point across pretty nicely.

Thanks, the music for this will be reggae-rock based. The chorus is sung, the second verse is rapped, and the first and last are somewhere between rapping and singing (kind of a dancehall style). If anyone has any specific criticism it is more than welcome. C4C
