[Sample]
Go tell em, go tell em
Go tell em, go tell em
Go tell em, go tell em

[Verse 1]
Go tell em, I’m gon’ tell what they don’t tell ’em
We been under water since they threw us in the boat
Sellin cotton pickin’ blues
Rock and roll, real role builders
Serving white America before we was dope dealing
Brick laid the birth of a nation, it’s the Roc
White house, black man, plantation, it’s Barack
But we still can’t cross the street
Without the cops trynna Zimmerman us while the whole neighborhood watch
They chained us to the auction block but now we changin’ the locks
‘Cause even Bill O’Reilly daughter out here drinkin’ Ciroc
Now that’s what I call the 21st Century Fox
Where Megyn Kelly try to tell me Santa’s white
It’s in town
Murder us right?
I just remember rap stars the new Bach
I pull strings like the orchestra, shut down your corporate
Nat Turner
Run up in the doors to your Nordstrom with a hundred niggas ready
And a hundred thousand more for ya
[Hook]
I see the future Martin Luther dreamt when he was a man
I feel the blood my momma fought for
See the scars on her hand
Oh tell me there ain’t no looking back now
Oh lord, as far as I ran
So take these chains or give me death
Either way we coming again

[Sample]
Go tell em, go tell em
Go tell em, go tell em
Go tell em, go tell em

[Verse 2]
Stripped from the family
Ripped from reality
Belly of the beast to the grips of the tragedy
Couldn’t touch my soul so they whipped my anatomy
I re-wrote the script when they thought they had mastered me
1-2-3
Now I’m counting up the casualties
Mounting up the calvary
Riding with a master piece
Shotgun shells show you god when they blast for me
Running like a wolf when they send the dogs after me
Fighting for my freedom, yes I had the audacity
Hangin’ from the trees, black blood on the leaves
Jumping overboard, black bodies in the sea
I die on my feet ‘fore I live on my knees
So you know I’m not begging if I say “Nigga please”

[Hook]
I see the future Martin Luther dreamt when he was a man
I feel the blood my momma fought for
See the scars on her hand
Oh tell me it ain’t no looking back now
Oh lord as far as I ran
So take these chains or give me death
Either way we coming again

[Intro: Raye]
Oh yeah-yeah
Oh-na-na-na, uhm

[Raye]
Concrete bricks, bullet proof vests
I’m proud of these walls that I built to defend
And protect this bold heart
This bold heart
But the way you marched into my home
Not few, big army
With the weapon on your arm
Yes, you struck straight with your cold heart
Your cold heart
[Verse 1: Nas]
I’m like Nat, I’m like Nat
I’m a man of God but where is Christ at?
And even though my name is Nas I am like Nat
Is this me declaring war? White flags
I now know why I was even born
To strike back
A full moon up in the sky, that’s a sign that
It’s time to get my liberation, the perfect configuration
It’s the birth of a nation, midwife black
Mother father, caucasian
My blood Indian, native
So now I’m contemplating being like Nat
‘Bout to show you what I’m made of
I’m what racists are afraid of
No mule and the 40 acres
And despite that
Watch out for the traitors
When they say make America great again, do they mean make us all slaves again?
Don’t be sidetracked

[Hook: Raye]
Is this you declaring war?
No, we will never wave the white flag, the white flag
So you think I’m gonna run now?
No, the time has come to fight back, to fight back
This is me declaring war
This is me declaring war, war
This is me declaring war, war

[Verse 2: Nas]
Don’t want to be a victim no more
Depicted as a criminal, especially when you’re poor
Why doesn’t the government order capital punishment
To officers
Who racial profile and put slugs in us
Makes me think they want us extinct
On the brink of insanity
We screaming for justice, they sending tanks, the man in me
Demand we protect the family, anarchy
Ku-Klux-Klan and him demanding he damage me
So my fantasy is every single one of us
Come against the evil divide of people, it’s common sense
The fury, I hope the whole world hear me
No justice, so I became a revolutionary
No matter if you’re red, white, black
If you want freedom then we’re all like Nat

[Hook: Raye]
Is this you declaring war?
No, we will never wave the white flag, the white flag
So you think I’m gonna run now?
No, the time has come to fight back, to fight back
This is me declaring war
This is me declaring war, war
This is me declaring war, war

[Outro]
Dear America, it’s time for a better America
There’s a little Nat Turner in every one of us
No matter if you’re red, white, black
If you want freedom then we’re all like Nat
War, war (war), war, war
Declare war
It’s time
Let the spirit of Nat Turner live forever

[Raye]
Concrete bricks, bullet proof vests
I’m proud of these walls that I built to defend
To protect this bold heart
This bold heart
But the way you marched into my home not (?)
Army with the weapon and your arm not (?)
Would be cold heart, your cold heart
[Verse 1: Nas]
I’m like Nat, I’m like Nat

And even though my name is Nas I am like Nat

To strike back
A full moon up in the sky, that’s a sign that
It’s time to get my liberation, the perfect configuration
It’s the birth of a nation, men white and black
Mother father, caucasian
My blood Indian, native
So now I’m contemplating being like Nat
Bout to show you what I’m made of
