Album “Peace Beyond Passion”‎

178368 1 f

Un album incentrato su di una trilogia di canzoni che, muovendo da una lettura critica della Bibbia, ‎condannano l’inumanità dell’uomo verso i suoi simili: razzismo, sessismo, omofobia….‎
All I ever wanted was a nigger who would be true, be good to me
While doin' the evil that niggers do
My view of self was that of a divine ho
Like the ones portrayed on the white man colonized minded rap shows
Oh the afro dizzy act of my blak rebel
I am a woman and to this world I accommodate myself
My place is in my blak man's defiance my nigger divine for his Sadness
So well complemented mine
When I look at you so blak and blue
My love for you sad but true

All I ever wanted was a nigger who would be true
All I wanted was a nigger man

One night on a love high we metamorphasized into gigantic blak butterflies
And for the first time I saw the god inside
I realized my nigger redefined was the blak man divine and he could take me higher
And the divine woman was what the blak man desired

But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, you shall not eat;
for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die
To them he said I will greatly multiply your pain and your
conception; in pain shall you bring forth children, and you shall be
dependent on your husband and he shall rule over you
Then god said, let us make man in our image

Let's go back to the time when the mind and soul were divine faith unquestioned
Mother father god said let us make man in our own image god
was not alone as no one should be I search for a righteous hand to rule over me

For you are a holy people to the Lord your god; The Lord your god
has chosen you to be a beloved people to himself, above all
people that are upon the face of the earth

The Lord shall bring a nation against you from afar, from the ends
of the earth, as swift as the eagle that flies; a nation whose
language you do not understand

Your sons and daughters shall be given to another people and
your eyes shall look on, and you shall grieve over them all the day
long and there shall be no might in your hand to do anything

The fruit of your labors shall a nation that you know not eat up and
you shall be wronged and oppressed always
