"Om Nia Merican" as written by Saul Williams, Tom Morello, Timothy Commerford, Brad Wilk and Zack De La Rocha....
om nia merican born of beats and blood
the concert of the sun unplugged, i'm the
om nia merican born of beats and blood
the concert of the sun unplugged

o say can you - 20,000 negro leagues beneath
the sea foamed clouds laced with ink that stains
when rains. makes books of trees at once
upon a dawn's early light, pawn bishop knight
children of night, may queens take kings
hereafter, thereafter the trickling sands
demand that our decisions be timeless i'm the

om nia merican born of beats and blood
the concert of the sun unplugged, i'm the
om nia merican born of beats and blood
the concert of the sun unplugged, i'm the

offspring of spring reborn, pledged, and
sworn - the risen ash of a flag burned and
torn, i'm the blood of the womb, the risen
tide of the moon, the dark side that the
light cannot hide, i'm the pages of history
read between the lines, the shining truth
behind your symbols and signs, i'm the son
of a minister, love a teacher, my mother
taught me well so i rebel, i'm the bell retolled
yet a story untold, the hidden force behind
a rock that was rolled. i'm the om nia
merican born of beats and blood, the concert
of the sun, unplugged, i'm the om nia
merican born of beats and blood the concert
of the sun unplugged

lift every voice and sing
til earth and heaven ring
