Family Name Lyrics
Album: The Rainbow Children
Welcome. U have just accessed the Akashic Records Genetic Information
Division. This program is required 4 those wishing 2 obtain a marriage
blessing from The Kingdom. When u wish 2 begin this program, place ur right
hand on the scanner and tightly clench up ur buttcheeks as u might feel a
slight electrical shock. Please select the race history u desire. U have
selected African-American. This is your history:
First of all, the term "black and white" is a fallacy. It simply is another
way of saying "this or that". Let's examine the term "this or that" in its
ultimate form which is: "this" means the truth or "that which is resistant 2
it. When a minority realizes its similarities on a higher level- not just
"black"- but PEOPLE OF COLOR, and higher still "INDIGENOUS", and even higher
still, "FROM THE TRIBE OF.", and yet higher- the "RAINBOW CHILDREN". When
this understanding comes, the so-called minority becomes a majority in the
wink of an eye. This action will cause a Reaction or Resistance. The source
of this Resistance must b banished as it is in direct conflict with the
initial action. It cannot be assimilated, 4 its very nature is resistance.
In other words, ONE CANNOT SERVE 2 MASTERS. U r either "this" or "that"
which is not "this".
End of part one. 2 continue, select the program Family Name and type in the
current government name u wish history on.
(London, England sometime in the early 1600s)
"We have the God-given right 2 run out of our colonies anyone who does not
bow down 2 our law. Hear, hear?"
"Come on, come on keep it moving here. What's your name boy?"
"Well it ain't now; it's Tom Lynch."
Mirror, mirror what u see?Have I still got those dark clouds over me?
Or am I really feeling what I feel?The last days of the Devil's Deal
Mirror, what u see?
Devil, devil what u know?/U been here since 1914, but now u got 2 go
U been hidin' behind corporate eyes
U wanna war, but u can't fight/Devil, u got 2 go
U might say, "what u mad about?"/But u still got ur Family Name
Pleased 2 meet u, Mr. Rosenbloom/I'll b John Blackwell just the same
What's ur Family Name?
Teacher, teacher what u say?/Did we really come over in a boat?
Did it really go down that way?/Or did I arrive b4 and ruin Thanksgiving Day?
Teacher, what u say?
Preacher, preacher is it true?/That Jesus wants me 2 give my money 2 the likes of u?
Ride around in ur Lexus Coupe/Drive us 2 the cleaners in a pinstripe suit
Preacher, that ain't truth!
U might say, "what u mad about?/But u still got ur Family Name
Pleased 2 meet u, Mr. Pearlman/U can call me Clay. can I play?
People, people what's ur name?/Maybe we should start all over
Let everybody get in the game/Put up a one-gloved fist
Make a sound, Violet Brown
U might say "what u mad about?"/But u still got ur Family name
Pleased 2 meet u Mr. Goldstruck.
We found this tape in the Akashic records. This is Thomas Jefferson:
"My fellow Americans, if there is a just God, we're gonna pay 4 this!"
"Black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics will
b able 2 join hands in the words of the old Negro spiritual:
"free at last, free at last, thank God almighty we are free at last!"
