Track Name: Idols
We've been held hostage for way too long/
but Christ is our ransom so we sing this song/
No more worshiping the throne of the 9-to-5/
'Cause christ pays the bills that keeps us alive/

Wake up oh sleeper and rise from the dead/
And let Christ light shine upon my head/
my body's walking around but my spirit in bed/
I can't even start the day until my spirit is fed/

Chorus
So we call on Jesus
And the idols come tumbling down/
And the idols come tumbling down/
And the idols come tumbling down/
And the idols come tumbling - LET OUT OUR SHOUT! (x2)


Climbing ladders of ambitions quickly gets old/
You could gain the whole world at the cost of your soul/
Now that's a good question 'what's the cost of your soul?'/
'Cause sitting on your own throne, quickly get's old/

wake up oh sleeper and rise from the dead/
and let Christ light shine upon me/
wake up oh sleeper and rise from the dead/
and let Christ light shine to set me free/

CHORUS

Outro
wake up, oh sleeper,
rise from, the dead,
and idols come tumbling,
idols come tumbling down.
Track Name: Black Tax
Don’t let your head fall black man.
Hold it up.

When you walk like you a king
they can’t ignore it.
When you know your worth
you gon’ pay for it.

When you talk like you a queen
they can’t ignore it.
When you know your worth
you gon’ pay for it.

It’s the Black TAX

You can go to school if you want to,
you still gotta pay it.
You can hide in corporate buildings,
you still gotta pay it.

You can run for president.
You can jump for higher heights.
But no matter where you go,
you’ll be running for your life.

if you a king, gotta pay for it.
that’s the Black Tax

They wanna take my down.
They wanna cut me down.
They wanna string me up.
Put my head in the ground.

that’s the Black Tax

Jesus Paid it.
Martin Luther King Paid it.
Obama Paid it.
Eric Garner Paid it.

It’s the black tax.
Pay it in full, or they commin’ for you.

Black America Paid it.
Ali paid it.
Panthers Paid it.
Malcolm X Paid it.

It’s the black tax
Pay it in full, or they commin’ for you.

Bodies swinging’ paid it.
Jim Crow Paid it.
War on drugs paid it.
Justice system paid it.

It’s the black tax
Pay it in full, or they commin’ for you.

Fear bating made it.
Racism played it.
Bad Religion faked it.
Only fools obey it.

if you a king, gotta pay for it.
that’s the Black Tax

If you’re a king and you know it,
If you’re a queen to some effect
If you Hold your head up high,
Don’t forget, protect your neck.

I gotta give a little bit more.
I gotta try a little more long.
I gotta do a couple more things,
Or I’ll be gone by the end of the song.

if you a king, gotta pay for it.
that’s the Black Tax
