Emancipate yourself from mental slavery None but ourselves can free our minds - suggests that the people he were singing to have the opportunity to break free from any bonds. These lines were taken from a speech given by Marcus Garvey, a Jamaican political leader who was a proponent of the Pan-Americanism movement

Have no fear for atomic energy Cause none of them can stop the time - Modern technology is not all powerful

How long shall they kill our prophets While we stand aside and look - This referrers to the death of MLK, and JFK.

The song is inspirational and pro civil rights talking about freeing from mental slavery.
