"Who Stole The Soul?" lyrics from "ameriBLACKKK"

written by L. Marshall for Heat Lamp Music (ASCAP)

Dialogue:
GOD - F.Y.I.
F.Y.I. - Yes, GOD
GOD - I have an assignment for you
F.Y.I. - Ok
GOD - Are you up to the challenge?
F.Y.I. - I got you
GOD - You're going to hear a lot of stories from the past to the present
F.Y.I. - Alright
GOD - But you the only man that I can help me find out, who stole the soul

Verse 1:
It's not a fluke that my name is Faruq / My heritage Arabic / Means knower of the truth / But in the 8th century I refuse / You either master or a servant / Rather steal kill and murder / Than die like my baba / A goat herder / Enslaving black bodies got me further / As far as I can see / They just beasts / In this land I called Zanj / My chaotic action / Took their peace / It was planned

Verse 2:
Could give a Allah damn / When n*ggers became barter / For years been eating / High on the hog / From they harvest / My hate swims in poisoned waters / For them black bulls / Eyeing my woman / Have they balls for souvenirs / Every single year / I pappy two mulattoes / They fix me supper in the house / I rape they mamie by the cabezo / Parnoid of revolt / I'll cut a pregnant n*gger's throat / In case she carrying the symbol of black hope

Verse 3:
Brothers and sisters / I'm in the struggle too / In the United Hate of America / What can a black leader do? / Raise a flag to the whites? / We bleeding with the red / Singing all the blues / Been castrated / Incarcerated / Highly sedated / It's '92 / Whole decade / Of crack babies / Felt the plague / Of AIDS / Gangsta Rap rage / Now I need your vote today / I feel your pain / But um keep me paid

Verse 4:
I won't deny your / Thirst for a black messiah / You drink up my celebrity / To keep your life interesting / On your head / Constantly / More than a widows peak / Selling shoes / Promoting Cars / My lifestyle's the centerpiece / I bring to the table / What the hood is not able / That's economic prowess / The revolution makes me coward/ For criers of freedom / My success is a pacifier / When they need one

Verse 5:
If they don't assume the position / I'll break their neck on the curb / I serve the state's interest / Protect blue brothers / To collect all of my pension / Love my wife / To f*ck my mistress / Three bodies / In two years / Over 17 suspensions / Never seen the court / That's why I'm called the force / Taxpayer endorsed / Blue code silence / Triple pay when it's riot / Even with a body cam / I'll still be the son of Sam

Verse 6:
Hey man / Hey bro / I like good vibes / I just wanna know / I'm a sunny Angeleno / Looking for the snow / Bought a gentrified house / Insanely low amount / Bi-sexual spouse / That my cool friends turn out / I'm less of a man / More like a mouse / Addicted to the trap / Turn up turn up / To the ounce / Riding on the wave / Till my soul is the grave

Dialogue:
GOD - (laughter)
GOD - Now that you heard all these stories, and you been able to put it all together, tell me who stole the soul?
