lyrics

I grew up in a small town where the trees bend towards the south, skipped church because I knew too much to sit and shut my mouth. Every body loved their guns and government in god, They wouldn't call it a lynching just as long as they didn't get caught. I remember all the riots when the president was black. They said a n— couldn't live in a house built on his people’s backs. I don’t think I saw color until I was taught that I should, and it’s a shame because I'll never get shot for just wearing a hood. • What primal creatures posing as divine like it’s alright. It’s alright. Brother your pigment ain’t the same as mine so they’ll stack the deck and play thew victim; don’t do much to keep it hidden, that tribal nature. • The white man burned the holy land, the white man stole the promised land. Spread the faith, preserve the race, block the pay and say it’s manifested. It’s about greed, mama, we are their machines, mama, that’s what I see, mama. Assign a role to every color every type and use the media and law to keep them straight inside the lines. • What primal creatures posing as divine like it’s alright. It’s alright. Brother your pigment ain’t the same as mine so they’ll stack the deck and play thew victim; don’t do much to keep it hidden • when every black kid gets a gun to the head — Arab in the streets, shoot him down till he’s dead — Leave a generation of the Japs mutated — Burn all of the kikes but strip them naked. All under arrest! Bomb the East! Digress past the rest of the world trying to say what’s best. Keep a white man in the oval office, you won’t go to jail, he should have been picking cotton. • {Click, click, boom goes the sound of explosions; people on the ground soon to drown from emotion. They say around town it’s going down so we’re posted, waiting on the outcome. Why they pop Malcom? Heard they want to MLK me, JFK me. Look how they’re trying to play me, like I’m crazy. Guess I’m super psychotic, a byproduct of my environment. Diabolical plots, shots firing. Cops sirens. It’s getting hot. Call the fireman. Called us tyrants, came to make a New America; it’s bullshit when you’ve got to get your truth from terrorists. Guess I’ll wake you up again, let me take you further than...down the rabbit hole where they’re grabbing souls from the capitol. Shrapnel. Killing our kids and kidnapping them. What’s happening? All across America it’s mass hysteria. They’re scared of us, we’re young, black, and aware of the nonsense in the content. On the conscious, digest. In the projects we’re living in the mindset: ‘you live by the gun, you die by the gun’, ‘cause not where you’re from but what you become, so be free.} • What primal creatures posing as divine like it’s alright. It’s alright. Brother your pigment ain’t the same as mine so they’ll stack the deck and play thew victim; don’t do much to keep it hidden, that tribal nature. • (Show me what democracy looks like! This is what democracy looks like!) • From presidential elections to war overseas, taking out my taxes just to shoot bullets at me. Culture keep me complacent with pussy, money, and weed. Face it, we’re in the matrix; what’s it gonna take to see? Maybe another body lying out in the streets. Maybe another body, 10, 20 at least. Maybe another body shot by the police. Maybe another body, some looking like me.
