Faheem we can see the throne from here
I may never sit there but brother you’re the heir
This is the throne in the kingdom where there is peace, love, and world unity. Though Ali may not live to see it — his child, Faheem, is the heir.
This is the same concept Ali also notes in other songs — that we are fighting for a better future for our children. A future where we don’t have to be just “…well adjusted to injustice and well adapted to indifference…*” to survive.
(*Cornell West contribution on Letter To My Countrymen on Ali’s Mourning in America album.)
