-Lyrics- 
 
Solo, I'm a soloist or a solo list 
All live, never on a floppy disk 
Inka, inka, bottle of ink 
Paintings of rebellion 
Drawn up by the thoughts I think 
 
It's set up like a deck of cards 
They're sending us to early graves 
For all the diamonds 
They'll use a pair of clubs to beat the spades 
With poetry I paint the pictures that hit 
More like the murals that fit 
Don't turn away 
Get in front of it 
 
Chorus: 
Brotha did ya forget ya name 
Did ya lose it on the wall 
Playin' tic-tac-toe 
 
Yo, check the diagonal 
Three brothers gone 
Come one 
Doesn't that make it three in a row 
Anger is a gift 
 
Chorus 
 
Yo, check the diagonal 
Three million gone 
Come on 
'Cause they're counting backwards to zero 
 
Environment 
The environment exceeding on the level 
Of our unconciousness 
For example 
What does the billboard say 
Come and play, come and play 
Forget about the movement 
Anger is a gift 
 
Freedom, freedom, yea right
