Won't They Be Surprised When They Get To Heaven?

In the beginning was he and he created Adam and Eve
In Africa, by the Euphrates it all came to be
Not in Europe nor in America
Sit back and let me enlighten ya
It wasn't because of "Big Bang"
or the evolution of some primitive tribes
All theses centuries they have convinced themselves
into believing in their own manifested lies
White washed and washed white
Propaganda in the worst way to justify their bite
Twisting and turning reality to fit
Taking ownership in America
when they ain't done shit
Pick that cotton, till that land,
and when ya get finished strike up the band
You can't read and you can't write
And if ya get too uppity,
I'll hang you on sight
Won't they be surprised when they get to heaven
Physical slavery was the forte'
Now they attempt to enslave
us through prisons, drugs and our pay
Killing off man, woman, and child
their tactics aren't even mild
Taken from our native land
Stripped of our culture
Brainwashed by the master adulterer
An ignorant attempt to dilute our color
by raping our women and murdering my brother?
Don't you know the strength of our genes
We reign from a race of Kings and Queens
Don't be deceived, God is not mocked
How dare you think that
you are his chosen flock
Won't you be surprised when you get to heaven?
Feet likened unto bronze and hair like wool
Is it all a lie or are you just a damn fool?
A fool trying to hold on to
what you have stolen, bamboozled, and plotted for
When and if you get to heaven,
what do you think you shall
see behind its door
It wont be blue eyes and blonde hair
The truth of the matter being,
it will be probably be something
you can't even bear
So, you may try to kill me
with your prejudice and your lies
but like Maya Angelou said..."and still I rise"
Enlighten yourselves while there is still time
Time to understand the "truth
behind the master lie
so you won't be surprised when you get to heaven
