lyrics

If you're white you're alright/ if you're brown stick around
If you're black then get back/ and you know its a fact
It's the way that they act/ and the slavish attack
And the knowledge they lack/ which is holding them back now. First they had us in physical slavery/ now they have us in mental slavery/ and we know they could never save we
We have to wake up and face them with bravery.

If we only knew our history (yea yea yea yea yea)
We could see through the lies and solve the mystery
If we only knew our royalty (yea yea yea yea yea)
We would sit on our throne just like the king of kings

First they had us in physical slavery/ now they have us on mental slavery/ and we know they could never save we/ that's why we wake and face them with bravery
Cuz I'm captured in the world of frustration.
Lack of hope all misdirection.
I call out at all the destruction.
Running from the terror and the corruption.
Fleeing the beast with seven heads.
Angels blowing on their trumpets.
Calling out priest melchizedek
When H.I.M. Come he has to get respect!
Chorus:
Negus negus negus Negast/ ancient Ethiopian from the past
From Madagascar to Sudan (oh yea)
He is the first and he is the last

If we only knew our history ( yea yea yea yea yea) We can see through the lies and solve the mystery. And if we only knew our royalty (yea yea yea yea yea) We would sit on our throne just like the king of kings)

Negus Negus Negus Negast/Ancient Ethiopian from the past/From Madagascar to Sudan (oh yea) Coming from the shores of Alkebulan Alkebulan

Negus Negus Negus Negast/Ancient Ethiopian from the past/
From Madagascar to Sudan (oh yea) he is the first and he is the last!
