This Is Dee

"Out of the huts of history's shame, I rise. Up from a past that's rooted in pain, I rise. I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide. Welling and swelling, I bear in the tide. Leaving behind nights of terror and fear. I rise. Into a daybreak that's wondrously clear. I rise. Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave. I am the dream and the hope of the slave. I rise. I rise. I rise.

Doctor, doctor won’t you please prescribe
A day in the life of someone else? 
Cuz I’m a hazard to myself 

Don’t let me get me 
I’m my own worst enemy 
Its bad when you annoy yourself 
So irritating 
Don’t wanna be my friend no more 
I wanna be somebody else
