Rainbow Children

With the accurate understanding of God and His law they went about the work of building a new nation:

The Rainbow Children

Just like the sun, the Rainbow Children rise,
Flying upon the wings of the New Translation
See them fly, fly
The covenant will b kept this time
Just like the sun, the Rainbow Children rise

Rainbow children, it's time 2 rise!
Rainbow children, it's time 2 rise!

As prophesied, the Wise One and his woman were tempted by the Resistor. He, knowing full well the Wise One's love 4 God, assimilated the woman first and only. Quite naturally, chaos ensued and she and 5 others were banished from the rainbow.4ever.

Just like the sun, the Rainbow Children rise
Flying upon the wings of the New Translation
See them fly, fly
The covenant will b kept this time
Just like the sun, the Rainbow Children rise

Just like the sun, the Rainbow Children rise
Flying upon the wings of the New Translation
See them fly, fly
The covenant will b kept this time
Just like the sun, the Rainbow Children rise

Who is ur real father'
The everlasting one
The one who came from nothing
And yet from this one, everything comes

The one who commands ur momma
With the simple phrase "I am"
And every time that she obeys
She gives birth 2 the Son of Man
Who is this'

Reproduction of the new breed leader/Stand up and organize!
Reproduction of the new breed leader/Stand up and organize!

The Agreement -
With every birth, we keep it so/Never changing one piece of it
In fear of what would unfold/The scales would then become unbalanced
And thus would begin the fall/The sin of one would become
The sin of one and all

Rise, rise, rise.
Rise, Rainbow Children, rise
Rise, Rainbow Children, rise

The Wise One who understood the law that was handed down from God long ago, held fast in his belief that the Lord would bring him another one who loved him so.

Muse to the Pharoah

If she could b Muse 2 the Pharoah
Then one day she might b Queen
If like Sheba, she then could bring presents/presence and wine
The helix he might get between them
In other words, intertwine
With the ebony and milk of her thighs
If she could be Muse and let him decide
Perhaps she'll let him decide

If she could b Muse 2 the Pharoah,
There is nothing he wouldn't give her c
4 the future of the nation rests in her belly
And if the Proverbs of the 31 and verse 10
Becomes the verse she sings again and again
She might b Queen

Take a load off, sweetie darling
Let me run agenda thru ur hair
There's so much information 4 the next generation
Who's gonna drop it if u're not there'

And whether the enemy makes a run on the palace
Or whether the enemy does not,
The children will be laced with the protection of the word of God
The opposite of NATO is OTAN
And if the number 13 is such a bad luck number
When there's no such thing as luck
Then the berries, talons, arrows and stars
Are all superstitions, what the ...

Get busy big baby cuz when dem devil come
Dem devil come dressed as light
Maybe they gon' fool the untrained mind
But nobody eye know gon' bite

Like a thief in the night
My Lord come and strike
Leave nothing but ashes to the left, dust 2 the right
Holocaust aside, many lived and died
But when all truth is told
Would u rather b dead or b sold'

Sold 2 the one who can now mate the displaced bloodline with the white jailbait.

Thinkin' like the keys on Prince's piano will be just fine

So there it is - 4 all 2 c
Now what's beyond u and me
Depends my friends primarily
On how u view ur role in Eternity

If she could b Muse 2 the Pharoah/One day she might b Queen

Digital Garden

Love, like a rose in bloom
All of the Rainbow Children will feel it soon
2 the east, word traveled about this energy
Until it reached the Banished Ones
Who just wanted this love 2 cease

They now fallen in2
The Resistor's dream
And they built a Digital Garden
Or so it seemed

In this brilliant darkness
So-called angels of light
"Lies, lies, lies, lies, lies"

And all the Rainbow Children
Will stand and fight
4 everlasting, everlasting life
4 the one who sits on the right
4 Him we're willing to do the work

The Banished Ones approaching the palace shouted obscenities. They tried 2
confuse the Rainbow Children and dethron their king. Using the lies promoted
by the whosepapers, hellavisions, and scagazines- The Banished Ones
constructed a Digital Garden around the palace that extended throughout the
world. Furthermore they demanded compensation 4 their time spent in the
palace b4 the exile. This was noise! "So be it," said the Wise One, and
gladly obliged with an INVISIBLE DEED. The Banished Ones accepted and
returned to their place of birth in MendaCity. As 4 the Rainbow Children,
they began deconstructing the Digital Garden. Door to door they went in
search of those willing to do The Work

The Work Pt 1

Every time I watch the other people news
I c a false picture of myself, another one of u
They try 2 tell us what we want, what 2 believe
Didn't that happen in the Garden
When somebody spoke to Eve'

But I'm willing 2 do The Work
Willing 2 do what I gotta do
I'm willing 2 do The Work
Tell me now- what about u'

Look around and tell me ur Sun is Risen
When ur brothers and sisters r in the Fall
What is left give when r work is done'
What do we own besides the right 2 crawl'

C we're living in a system that the devil designed
And suffering from this devil's most heinous crime
He's tried 2 keep us from the reason we were born
That is 2 b the living truth in human 4m.

But I'm willing 2 do The Work
Willing 2 do what I gotta do
I'm willing 2 do The Work
Tell me now- what about u'

This work is not an easy task
But this is the work we must do 4 Revelation2 come 2 pass
This work is the kind that turns ur back on the Ruling Class
By putting them in their place just like the past

Taste it, ain't it sweet sweet'
Gotta lotta work 2 do
Taste it, ain't it sweet sweet'
Gotta lotta work 2 do

Nothing can stop us/Whatever's in r way
We got 2 go thru it 2 get 2 it
I head somebody say,

"I'm willing 2 do The Work
Do what I gotta do
I'm willing 2 do The Work
Tell me now- what about u'"

Thank u

From all over, the people came 2 do The Work. And with every phase of the
deconstruction the Everlasting Now became evermore reality. Everywhere the
people were witnessing a change, but the alchemy occurred most in the Muse.

Everywhere

"There's a place I want 2 go
Where the milk and honey flow
Without God it wasn't there
Now I feel it Everywhere"

When I was lost and couldn't c my way
I used 2 follow what everybody say
Now I know that it's written in the heart
Now I'm ready, ready 2 start

Without God it wasn't there
Now I feel it Everywhere

We were always meant 2 b
In paradise eternally
B4 the truth I did not care
Now I feel it Everywhere

Feel it, feel it Everywhere
Feel it, feel it
Can u feel it'
This might good feeling Everywhere
We've got so much work 2 do.Everywhere

The Sensual Everafter

2 all his good brothers the Wise One spoke highly of his Muse, because her
love 4 the one true God was growing with every passing day. So he said, "2
all a good night", sent them 2 bed early and invited his Muse 2 join him in
the Sensual Everafter

Mellow

Wanna get lost in the mellow Mellow of my mind
Chop a tree, pay the cost
I rather have a glass of u that's fine
Come on over baby 'round 7
Chill in ur favorite chair

U can watch a tape of this mellow afterparty
Macy and Common were there
Besides, u know... it takes... awhile... 4 me... 2 do... my... hair

Come on get lost in the mellow Mellow
Come on get lost in the mellow Mellow

How's that feel'

Where you wanna eat 2nite baby'
I know this dope spot called one another
Or maybe we might swing by the Egg
The perfect place 2 play house
I could smother u
I just might be runnin' lines
There's just so much u can find
In the mellow of my mind

This rainbow psychedelia
Come and get lost in the Mellow
There ain't nothin' 2 b afraid of
Just u and me in the mellow of my mind

I wanna get lost in the composition of u
Learn the rhythm and play only the notes u want me 2
I'm a good learner and once I understand
I'll stand under u and let u show me how u want ur man 2 b
I could dance 4 u- a little comical minuet
If u desire I'll shed my attire
Anything 2 get u wet.

Shower, my flower'
So much 2 do, so little time
So choose wisely and u can find thee
In the Mellow of my mind

Can I sing 2 u while u bring urself 2 joy'
I'll go slow at first, while u quench ur thirst
Wet circles round the toy
While u bring urself 2 joy

As she fell in2 the Sensual Everafter, out of bodyout of mind,
she stroked her hair a hundred times.
And as she fell deeper in2 the hypnotic unwind, he counted his way in2 the suggestive mind.
Planting a seed that bears fruit on the tree,
he said, "Repeat after me. Repeat after me. Repeat after me. 1+1+1 is 3"

1+1+1 is 3

If u ain't got no place 2 stay
Come on baby 'round this way
Stay with me baby
But let me tell u how it's gonna b

There's a theocratic order.
There's a theocratic order now

This is how it's gonna b
If u wanna b with me
Ain't no room 4 disagree
1+1+1 is 3

Take ur time and think it thru
If this is what u wanna do
I ain't really that hard 2 please
Cuz 1+1+1 is 3

Stroke ur hair a hundred times
Let me c what I can find
D u know about the order.
Do u know about the order, now'

The Banished Ones:

"We are the Banished Ones and we have come 2 dance
If u will not let us, we'll have 2 kick ur pants!"

Who's that knockin' on r door'
Didn't we throw u out b4'
I'm 'bout 2 get rowdy!
I'm 'bout 2 get rowdy, now!
Make me wanna do something.

We could b surrounded in the palace
"Everybody wants 2 get u!"
I don't care

How many y'all just came 2 dance'
Let me c u shake ur pants
We don't give a duck what u got on
U just need 2 work that sexy body all nite long
Come on

Where them Banished Ones at'
"Said they 'round the back"
Don't cut 'em no slack
"I'm gon' tap, tap, tap"
But should I keep this party going'
"Brotha u know that!"

Moneyapolis, sing-Rainbow Children, raise ur hands
If we can't do it, nobody can!

Here they come y'all
Rally 'round the palace now
U know what we got 2 do!

How'd that fool get up in here'

Deconstruction

One after the other, the Banished Ones fled as they watched from the distance the destruction of the Digital Garden. With no more fruit 2 bear from its trees, the Haze was finally broken. With the rains came the awareness that NEVER AGAIN WOULD ANYONE EVER LAY CLAIM 2 THE TREASURES OF THE RAINBOW CHILDREN! As though awakened from a dream, the Muse opened her eyes.this time as Queen.

Wedding Feast

"Brother dear brother, I came as quickly as I could
The Digital Haze is broken,The Banished Ones r gone 4 good, gone 4 good"

Now there must b a wedding
Now there must b a feast
A feast, a feast
A smorgasbord at least
A brunch, a munch
Of cake if just a piece

Not just a vat of chitlins
Or turkey meat u c
We r what we eat
So we must eat a leaf
We'll dine under a tree
Unless it snows!

She Loves Me 4 Me

With this one I can b what I wanna b
I don't have 2 live up 2 no one's fantasy
I could write another 300 melodies
2 her it's just 3, cuz this one.
She Loves Me 4 Me

With this one I don't even have 2 comb my hair
I can wear what I want 2
Or nothing she don't care
I don't even have 2 take her on the rollercoaster c
Cuz this one, She Loves Me 4 Me

In the morning,
When I rise and c her eyes
Look deep in2 mine
I find a better place

This one I can tell all my secrets 2
I don't have 2 make her swear she would never tell anywho
Besides I'm the only one she ever wants 2 c
Cuz this one, honestly, She Loves Me 4 Me

When the night falls
And she calls
I run 2 her side
Cuz she got the ride I like 2 ride

This one I can take over my momma's house
And I don't have 2 worry what goes in and out her mouth
All she needs is a little gratuity
She don't like no beef, she just loves me 4 me
This one, She Loves Me 4 Me

Family Name

Welcome. U have just accessed the Akashic Records Genetic Information Division. This program is required 4 those wishing 2 obtain a marriage blessing from The Kingdom. When u wish 2 begin this program, place ur right hand on the scanner and tightly clench up ur buttcheeks as u might feel a slight electrical shock. Please select the race history u desire. U have selected African-American. This is your history:

First of all, the term "black and white" is a fallacy. It simply is another way of saying "this or that". Let's examine the term "this or that" in its ultimate form which is: "this" means the truth or "that which is resistant 2 it. When a minority realizes its similarities on a higher level- not just "black"- but PEOPLE OF COLOR, and higher still "INDIGENOUS", and even higher still, "FROM THE TRIBE OF.", and yet higher- the "RAINBOW CHILDREN". When this understanding comes, the so-called minority becomes a majority in the wink of an eye. This action will cause a Reaction or Resistance. The source of this Resistance must b banished as it is in direct conflict with the initial action. It cannot be assimilated, 4 its very nature is resistance. In other words, ONE CANNOT SERVE 2 MASTERS. U r either "this" or "that" which is not "this".

End of part one. 2 continue, select the program Family Name and type in the current government name u wish history on.

The Everlasting Now

I knew this dude
He was very cool
He used 2 rule
Until he went 2 school

Not a normal school
That breeds a fool
But the ones that teaches
Men aren't fit to rule

That's when he took his pearly crown
He raised it up and spun it 'round
And tossed in2 the deep blue underground

No longer lead by the ways of men
He looked 4 the kingdom deep within
That's when the drums in his head began 2 pound

Don't let nobody bring u down
Accurate knowledge of Christ and the Father
Will bring the Everlasting Now
Join the party, make a sound
Share the truth, preach the good news
Don't let nobody bring u down
The Everlasting Now

Now turn the page, at an early age
This brutha on stage, he was all the rage
He taught an integrated world 2 sing
The color u are don't mean a thing
Everybody's a star all the everyday people sang

He changed the funk, put it in a bag
Then he changed the colors of the flag
But u can't teach a dog new tricks if his tail don't wag
Don't know matter how much money u made
All the cars u got and all the women u laid
Mess with the flag and 2 them u're still a spade

Don't let nobody bring u down
Accurate knowledge of Christ and the Father
Will bring the Everlasting Now
Join the party, make a sound
Share the truth, preach the good news
Don't let nobody bring u down
The Everlasting Now

See this girl in her make-believe world
Plastic boobs and clip-on curls
'Round the pole see her big butt twirl
There r the dreams that do unfurl
Never everlasting

Don't let anybody bring u down
The Everlasting Now

Watch that girl in her make-believe world
Plastic boobs and clip-on curls
'Round the pole see her big butt twirl
Electric beaches skin do bake
Vanilla fudge and wedding cake
If u should die b4 u wake
U got any last requests 2 make'

The Everlasting Now
The Everlasting Now
The Everlasting Now

Johnny, B. Well and bring the beat

From this day forward 'til times indefinite, those who love Christ r the
ones who benefit. All the players' ice melted in2 one platinum chain and in
a downward spiral it dropped down the chain.

"U know, this is funky but I wish he'd play like he used 2, old scragglyhead."

Don't let nobody bring u down
Accurate knowledge of Christ and the Father
Will bring the Everlasting Now
Join the party, come on make a sound
Share the truth, preach the good news
Don't let nobody bring u down
The Everlasting Now

The Everlasting Now
The Everlasting Now
The Everlasting Now
Now, now, now
The Everlasting Now

Last December

If ur Last December came
What would u do'
Would anybody remember
2 remember u'

Did u stand tall'
Or did u fall'
Did u give ur all'

Did u ever find a reason
Y u had 2 die'
Or did u just plan on leaving
Without wondering y'

Was it everything it seemed'
Or did it feel like a dream'
Did u feel redeemed'

In the name of the Father
In the name of the Son
We need 2 come 2gether
Come 2gether as one

Did u love somebody
But got no love in return'
Did u understand the real meaning of love'
That it just is and never yearns'

When the truth arrives
Will u b lost on the other side'
Will u still b alive'

In the name of the Father
In the name of the Son
We need 2 come 2gether
Come 2gether as one

In ur life did u just give a little
Or did u give all that u had'
Were us just somewhere in the middle'
Not 2 good, not 2 bad'

In the name of the Father
In the name of the Son
We need 2 come 2gether
Come 2gether as ONE
