2Pac: Panther Power
[Tupac]. As real as it seems the American Dream. Ain't nothing but another calculated scheme. To get us locked up shot up or back in chains. To deny us of the future rob our names. Kept my history a mystery but now I see. The American Dream wasn't meant for me. Cause lady liberty's a hypocrite she lied to me. Promised me freedom, education, equality. Never gave me nothing but slavery. And now look at how dangerous you made me. Calling me a mad man cause I'm strong and bold. With this gun full of knowledge of the lies you told. Promise me emancipation in this new nation. All you gave my people was our patience. Fathers of our country never cared for me. They kept my answer shackled up in slavery. And Uncle Sam never did a damn thing for me. Except lie about the facts in my history. So now I'm sitting here mad cause I'm unemployed. But the government's glad cause they enjoy it. When my people are down so they can screw us around. Time to change the government now panther power

[Chorus]. Panther power. Panther power. Panther power

[Tyson]. Panther power from the strength that resides within. Go toe to toe with a panther and you just can't win. Suffered fame bats suppressed the rest. The rich get richer and the poor take less. The American Dream was an American nightmare. You kept my people down and refuse to fight fair. The Klu Klux Klan tried to keep us out. With signs drew they know no blacks allowed. With intimidation and segregation was a way for our freedom. But now we're impatient. Blacks the other skin: dead or sell outs. Freedom, equality, then I'll yell out. "Don't you ever be ashamed of what you are. It's ya panther power that makes you a star". Panther power

[Chorus]. Panther power. Panther power. Panther power

[Tupac]. My Mother never let me forget my history. Hoping I was set free chains never put on me. Wanted to be more than just free. Had to know the true facts about my history. I couldn't settle for being a statistic. Couldn't survive in this capitalistic. Government cause it was meant to hold us back. Using ignorant, drugs, to sneak attack. In my community they killed the unity. But when I charged them, tried to claim immunity. I strike America like a case of hard disease. Panther power is running through my arteries. Try to stop oh boy you'll be clawed to death. Cause I'll be fighting for my freedom with my dying breath. Do you remember that is what I'm asking you?. You think you living free don't let me laugh at you. Open your eyes realize that you have been locked in chains. Said you wasn't civilized and stole your name. Cause some time has passed seem you all forget. There ain't no liberty to you and me we all ain't free yet. Panther power

[Chorus]. Panther power. Panther power. Panther power

[Tupac]. As real as it seems the American Dream. Ain't nothing but another calculate schemes. To get us locked up shot up or back in chains. To deny us of the future rob our names. Kept my history a mystery but now I see. The American Dream wasn't meant for me. Cause lady liberty's a hypocrite she lied to me. Promised me freedom, education, equality. Never gave me nothing but slavery. And now look at how dangerous you made me. Calling me a mad man cause I'm strong and bold. With this gun full of knowledge of the lies you told.
