Black is Time lyrics

Time, time is a ship on a merciless sea [tik-tak
Drifting toward an abyss of nothingness [tik-tak
Until it can be recharted for its own destiny [tik-tak]

Time is an inanimate object [tik-tak
Paying and paying and paying [tik-tak
For no justification for belief [tik-tak]

Time is dancing [tik-tak
Boogalooing away all memories of past experience [tik-tak
Dancing away all thoughts [tik-tak
Of personal and collective manifestations [tik-tak
Dancing, dancing, dancing [tik-tak
Until you become a slave of rhythm [tik-tak
Ain′t no longer seek freedom [tik-tak
Dance, dance, dance, dance [tik-tak
'Til there′s no more time to dance [tik-tak
Time is being caught up in a web of fеtal self [tik-tak
Until you become inhuman [tik-tak
Somеthing to be controlled [tik-tak
Time is nothing to niggers and negroes [tik-tak
Time is nothing to y'all [tik-tak
Time is gettin' high [tik-tak]

Go on to a foreman thinking [tik-tak
That the next time you can do it again [tik-tak
Time is running, time is running [tik-tak
Time is running out on black power advocates [tik-tak
In the day and white thighed supporters at night [tik-tak]

Every time you see them [tik-tak
They′re chasin′ some white woman [tik-tak
With their tongue hangin' out [tik-tak
Time is running and passing [tik-tak
Passing and running [tik-tak
Running and passing, passing and running [tik-tak]

Like Hollywood niggas [tik-tak
Who ain′t got nothing better to do with their time [tik-tak
Than keep their heads [tik-tak
Glued between the thighs of some Holloywood bitch [tik-tak
Who has gonorrhea of the mouth [tik-tak
And syphilis dripping from their mind [tik-tak
Time is running, time is running [tik-tak
Time is running, time is running [tik-tak
Time is comin' to, time is comin′ to [tik-tak
Time is coming to an ain't no more [tik-tak]

Give me five more minutes, baby baby [tik-tak
Please, give me five more minutes [tik-tak
I just need five more minutes [tik-tak]

Niggers and negroes, y′all and all better get right
At this time, while the time is good
'Cause there might not be no next time
