"ABRAHIM"

Verse 1 [Rap]
A cold night, but hot with passion,
We danced with such satisfaction.
My people warmed by the fire,
To love God was their greatest desire.
Suddenly the laughter was broken,
From the woods appeared the unspoken.

Verse 2 [Rap]
So swift was the blade of their sword,
So evil the intent of this horde,
They killed us for loving our God.
They said our happiness was a fraud.
"To love God and others," is all we ever said,
So for this they cut off my head.

Chorus 1 [sung]
The words we spoke, the way we lived,
Was tearing up their System by the roots.
They can kill me and burn my trail,
But they'll never change the truth.
Don't be afraid, don't shed a tear,
We're all watching over you.
It is your time to make a change,
So come what may, hang on 'til the end!

Verse 2 [Rap]
Life for you may have gotten kinda hard,
May seem at times you've been dealt the losing card.
It sure seemed that way to me as I faced unexpected death.
Perhaps you've thought of giving up instead.
But if you let God help you hang in this revolution,
You're not part of the problem, but part of the solution.

Chorus 2 [sung]
The words you speak, the way you live,
Is tearing up their System by the roots.
They can kill you and burn your trail,
But they'll never change the truth.
Don't be afraid; don't shed a tear,
We're all watching over you.
It is your time to make a change,
So come what may, hang on 'til the end!

Chorus 3
The words we spoke, the way we lived,
Was tearing up their System by the roots.
They can kill me and burn my trail,
But they'll never change the truth.
Don't be afraid; don't shed a tear,
We're all watching over you.
It is your time to make a change,
So come what may, hang on 'til the end!
