Lupe Fiasco - Ayesha Says (Intro) Lyrics

  • Hijabs, hoodies, afros, locks
  • Teddy bear, liquor bottle shrines, rocks
  • Tanks, prayer rugs, church pews, Mexican corn stands
  • Blood, sweat, and tears, police batons
  • Gas masks and bullets create graffiti on corners
  • Murals that salute freedom or death for liberty
  • Be it Inglewood or Egypt, Bedstuy or Baghdad
  • Syria or Liberia, the west bank or the west side of Chicago
  • Where food and liquor stores still occupy the block
  • While police and community watchmen justify why they shot
  • Emmit Till and Malice Green, Rekia Boyd and Trayvon Martin
  • Better not wear that hoodie while shopping for a carton
  • Or whatever they sellin’ in your food desert
  • Cause your soul is dessert and will be dissected and consumed
  • On the Fox evening news while we sing the blues
  • The new Jim Crow caged bird sings
  • Cause he’s tired of occupying his misery and of our marching
  • He wanna fly to a higher consciousness
  • But his school on academic probation
  • They gave him medicine, diagnosed him with a felony and mental retardation
  • So he refuses to cease the firin’, nobody’s hirin’
  • In Illinois, 67 is the new age when you retirin’
  • Class lines have blurred, those who used to have, have not
  • Pensions bein’ snatched
  • Those who never have keep their hands stretched
  • Social services being cut
  • Sterilization clinics giving out pills to numb the womb
  • Young girls referring to their vaginas as tombs
  • Thinkin’ protests are temporary and trendy
  • Well rock a t-shirt and carry a poster
  • And two weeks later it’s back to normal
  • But they say times are changin’
  • The revolution is becoming second nature, causes are combining
  • People carrying torches, hope burning from their hands
  • Attaching explosive devices ‘cause they keep stealing their lands
  • In the name of freedom
  • Hijabs, hoodies, afros, locks
  • Teddy bear, liquor bottle shrines, rocks
  • Tanks, prayer rugs, church pews, Mexican corn stands
  • Blood, sweat, and tears, police batons
  • Gas masks and bullets create graffiti on corners
