The Long March


The Long March EP
Blue Scholars
Producer: Sabzi
2005

Verse 1:

Left, right left, check it out

It goes left, right, left and we're marchin' on

Ya'll can pop your collars, Blue Scholars poppin' collarbones

Molotov cocktail party at the White House

Fire in the hole of the Oval Office, it's lights out

Alpha to Omega, Genesis to Revelation

The meek shall inherit but they're still miseducated

By the colonized mind idolized in America

New people's era once again break the barriers

To crush, kill, destroy

Stressin' over trying to find a job or just keepin' the one you got

Now war? Huh? What the fuck's it good for?

Absolutely everything that America has stood for

Some read a book but can't overstand one love

Like Radio Raheem's right hand

Two mics, two turns, two cats and no others

My hypeman's the spirit of my still-born brother

 

Hook:

Goin' left, right, left and we're marchin' on

Left, right, left, keep it up ya'll

Left, right, left, keep marchin' on

Left, right, left (check it out)

 

Verse 2:

It goes left, right, left like a pendulum

Swingin' the momentum in the people's direction

I learned lessons never taught in textbooks or chalkboards

Sittin' in the back of the class, the teacher talked more

Cock back this hammer to sickle-cell up you amateurs

Skills below average, you will always be a challenger

I walk like a champion, talk like a champion

Want to be somebody? Better get yourself some discipline

I spit good medicine, listen to the antidote

Clean the Clear Channel out your eardrums and throat

I wrote this manifesto for folks who can't afford most luxuries

And not those who boast that they're broke when they're not

Walk now, proud and tall, the occasional fall

It keeps me humble through it all

Now Geo's chillin', Sabzi's chillin', what more can I say?

We keep marchin' to the rhythm

 

Hook:

Goin' left, right, left and we're marchin' on

Left, right, left, Blue Scholars ya'll

Left, right, left, it's the long march
