I am waiting in the darks of the deepest jail cell
Zapatista political prisoner
Fighting for my people's autonomy
The right to control the land that we grow
The right keep all our knowledge alive
The right to learn, to eat, and to pray
I am, I am...

And so I know that
Your struggle is my struggle
Give the people food and water
Your struggle is my struggle
Stop the teaching of the white lies
Your struggle is my struggle
And the right to choose for ourselves
Your struggle is my struggle
May the light grow and burn the darkness

You are 16 yrs old black lost in inner cities
Burdened by the weight of the beast around you
Murder, violence, and greed, dollar science
Black man denied the chance to survive
Drugged and sucked and devoured alive
Another slave of the 21rst century
You are, you are...
