Who Wrote It: Pantera or Maya Angelou?

1. “Who might stop me/ My strength is in number/ And my soul is in every one.”

2. “It’s the fire of my eyes/ And the flash of my teeth.”

3. “You may write me down in history/ With your bitter, twisted lies/ You may trod me in the very dirt/ But still, like dust, I’ll rise.”

4. “Educate, reinstate, educate/ A thing of the past/ The trouble in the states/ It’s time to rise.”

5. “New life in place of old life/ Unscarred by trials/ A new level of confidence and power.”

6. “Your mouths spilling words/ Armed for slaughter.”

7. “Belong/ You can’t be something you’re not/ Be yourself, by yourself.”

8. “He’s watching, say your prayers/ ‘Cause God is everywhere.”

9. “In my life/ All I wanted/ Was the keeping/ Of someone like you.”

10. “A caged bird stands on the grave of dreams/ His shadow shouts on a nightmare scream.”
