Another speaking scene.

lyrics

how many social justice workshops must you attend
before you realize the ultimate question is simple
when are you ready to get this freedom
education is crucial but action is necessary
reading how to books are only as effective when you put it in practice

attention all people of color asians latinos natives pacific islanders black folks
everybody with a little bit of flavor everybody with a little bit of melanin
its time for the coalition of all coalitions
its time where we come together and truly unite
develop a bond so strong even the oppressors might will get goodnight

the moment is now for the liberation your heart has been praying for
the victory is sweeter than you can imagine
the triumph is more beautiful than you can comprehend
the summit of that mountain is such a breathtaking experience
you’ll never be the same
it’s heaven on earth brother and sisters
are you ready to go through hell to enter into the kingdom of god?

finally ready face your fears
finally ready let go what you’ve been holding back
see how fast the snap crack in that slingshot
bust Goliath in the dome piece hear the rock go smack

how many more times must your people die in the streets
how many more times must you lie in defeat
dreading to live another day because you broke but you still have to pay

our destiny is ready for us
and you feel deep down in your heart
that’s when the journey finally starts
