Black Man White God

Sip from my jar
The juice of life
Sip from it
The opium of wonders

Sip Sip and be like me
Be like me in words
Be like me in steps
Be like me in life

Black man Black God

And that i did
You said him plus him is hymns
So I married your hymns
To seal our friendship for fellowship

Sang with you
Danced your dance
And talked your talk
Becos you gave me the light of your proud

White man White God

Suddenly you stole my name
And I, yours
You pilot my identity
Without morality

You ignited my heart
To cross seven rivers
But now I do it
To restore you back

White man Black God

Come back and lead the way
Come back and take your place
Come back and drop that name
For which I sold a tear
