Lyrics:

Distinguished guests
Brothers and sisters
Ladies and gentlemen
Friends and enemies

Malcolm X
No sell out

White, black, brown, red, yellow
It doesn't make any difference what color you are

The only thing power respects is power

They take one little word out of what you say
Ignore all the rest
And then begin to magnify it all over the world
To make you look like what you actually aren't

Much of what I say might sound like it's stiring up trouble
But it's the truth
With the truth
We don't care who likes it or not
As long as we know it's the truth
No, either this or that, this or that
If you're wrong, you're wrong
And if you're right, you're right

There is no skullduggery
No flim-flam
No compromise
No sell out
No controlled show

Malcolm X
No sell out

You can't deny that
You may not like my saying it
But you can't deny it
If you're afraid to tell the truth
Why you don't even deserve freedom

You can't say that you're not going to have an explosion
And you leave the condition
And as long as those ingredients, explosive ingredients, remain
Then you're going to have the potential for explosion on your hands

Malcolm X
No sell out

I'm not the kind of person who'd come here to say what you like

I've got a plate in front of me
But nothing is on it
Because all of us are sitting at the same table
Are all of us diners?
I'm not a diner until you let me dine
Then I become a diner

I was in my house last night that was bombed in Harlem
It isn't something that made me lose confidence in what I'm doing

Brothers, sisters, friends
And I see a few enemies...


MALCOLM LIVES!
