    Yo, you believe when they say we ain't shit, we can't grow?
    All we are is dope dealers, and gangstas and hoes?
    And you believe when they be tellin you lie, all on the media?
    They make the world look crazy to keep you inside?
    Why you listen when the teachers at school
    know you a young single parent out strugglin, they think you a fool
    Give your kids bad grades and put 'em in dumber classes
    Killin shorty future, I wonder how do we last it
    Underground in they casket? Ancestors turnin
    I'm learnin somethin every day, there is no Lazareth
    Words like God is Greek or Latin
    So if you study Egypt, you'll see the truth written by the masters
    My niggaz is chillin, gettin high, relaxin
    Envisionin, ownin shit, yo it can happen
    What do we own? Not enough land, not enough homes
    Not enough banks, to give a brother a loan
    What do we own? The skin on our backs, we run and we ask
    for reperations, then they hit us with tax
    And insurance if we live to be old, what about now?
    So stop bein controlled, we black zombies

    [Chorus: (sung)]
    Walkin talkin dead, though we think we're livin (black zombies)
    We just copy-cat, followin the system (black zombies)
    Walkin talkin dead, though we think we're livin (black zombies)
    We just copy-cat, followin the system (black zombies)

    Aiyyo we trapped in our own brain, fuck behind bars
    We've already gone insane
    They've already gave up, cut our own heads offs
    Stab our own backs and dream too much
    without fulfillin reality; too greedy and
    can't have one or two chains, we need three of dem
    Can't have one or two guns without squeezin 'em
    on our own people and, fuck black leaders
    cause whites ain't got none leadin them, the rhythm is cosmic
    Nas is divinity, the deity's prophetless
    All get down and get up
    Victims walkin 'round with Down's Syndrome, all stuck
    Faintin, shoutin, catchin Holy Ghost in church
    Scared to do it for ourselves 'less we see somebody doin it first
    We begged, we prayed, petitioned and demostrated
    Just to make another generation - black zombies


    You scared to be yourself, cause you in a trance
    Feel free, hear the music and dance
    If you cared what they think, why wear what they wear, just for you
    Dumb niggaz with long beards like they Arabs or Jews
    or from Israel, Bismi-Allah Al-rahman Al-raheem
    Islam's a beautiful thing
    And Christian and Rastafari, helps us to bring
    peace against the darkness, which is unGodly
    So what's the black man's true religion, who should we follow?
    Use your own intuition, you are tommorrow
    [roaring] .. that's the sound of the beast
    I'm a Columbia record slave, so get paid
    Control your own destiny, you are a genius
    Don't let it happen to you like it did to me, I was a black zombie


    Wake up! Black zombies in a spell for more than fo'-hundred years
    Ghetto niggaz won't have it no mo', can I get a witness?
    Why listen to somebody else tell you how to do it
    when you can do it yourself; it's all in you, do it, do it
