lyrics

riot the juvenile prison "they"
divide the youth by religion
you fine if yous a christian
to the fire with tribe provisions
inspired a new division
ice against civilians
to entice a new collision
blueprints for ethnic cleansing
arm yourself they recommendin
if you ain't from wealth descendants
everyone just in ya
in ya business
callem social politicians
black n white
i ride the gray
i might just fuckin die today
police is shoootin
agents raid
the kids fear that they goin away
them actions cause a ricochet
the anchors steady getting paid
just to spew they fuckin opinion
political minions abusing the system
media fu fuckem
i'm reluctant never trust'em
ima rudy streets i lovem
shoot your television you suckas
ain't no okie dokes

rain clouds forming over there it’s a warning
they say a big storm is coming in the paper this morning
pictures of people they looking scared and they worried for once the rain it starts pouring now who can say when it’s stopping
the drops fall and they fall and the people they scatter they feel the thunder is clapping and look the windows they shatter and now they try to find shelter but they surrounded by water they wonder will it end the wind blows harder and harder

i see the people them suffer each and every day and i wonder how and when them gonna find a better way see when the one is subjugated ain’t nobody free then they go and throw fire and then the flames they grow higher
o’lawd

me nah liberal
me cool
we nah gentrified
no coon
we nah march wit silver spoon
we know tribal livin come soon
burn illusions
burn buffoons
burn statistics
burn the news
turn the odds against the evens
as the fool becomes the muse
radicalize the poor despised
antagonize with culture lies
i recognize the plot for suicide
i'm trippin conspiracy theorized
i'm livin proof of civil rights
or civil thoughts unbroght to light
i'm still a dream of Luther King
or further back a Garveyite
soon forward and back toward
unknown agendass
we rap for it
imprisoned souls they trap for it
Fox News still cookin the crack for it
the people rushin to buy
information televised
segregation on the rise again
i'm standing firm with fam n kin

in the news they are claiming they say they know what they saying they got the facts and they start blaming see the way they are framing: it’s us and them
ours and theirs
the sane and the crazy
the propaganda pumping in so that the truth starts getting hazy
politicians makes faces
turn up the fear to win races
i see they playing their part
in the palace insulated
now they pushing up war like it’s the only solution
everybody knows that war it was the start of this confusion

right now the people them suffer each and every day and i wonder how and when them gonna find a better way see when the one is subjugated ain’t nobody free then they go and throw fire and then the flames they grow higher
o’lawd

open up the mind’s eye to see a new proposition: a world that doesn’t include a single dominant human
each and every living soul in a respected position and the happyness of all is guiding every decision
when the health of the earth is never ever a question
every action the result of a meditated intention
the walls of the world they come a-tumblin’ down and in their place a peaceful people dancing feet on the ground

‘till then the people them suffer each and every day and i wonder how and when them gonna find a better way see when the one is subjugated ain’t nobody free then they go and throw fire and then the flames they grow higher
o’lawd
