What is love without sacrifice
its why God's son had to paythe price.
see, the pinnacle of tolerance is dying for a world full of ignorance,
and they provokedyour demise and one of your very own denied you thrice.
it's why M.A.U M.A.U showed the bravery
M.A.U M.A.U Had the white man caving in.
i seen a lotta folk get brought down
i seen a lotta folk rise back up.
For the love of your own keep on pushing till you get back up.
These are mental minerals i dug deep to getthesedeep thought is the sacrifice.
And the words are just part of it, 
The very long hours that i put in it
