Now let's talk about self expression, true expression,
Open your minds without question,
No doubt, tell me what you're thinking about,
Let's try to set aside pride and clout,
Can you believe I feel the same exact way you do?
You truly do believe these modern ways have fooled you,
Systems exist so we never meet each other,
Pretty soon from now that I'll long the word "brother",
And that's true if they see you walking with a crew,
If you don't know, that means more than two,
I'll tell you what they'll do,
They'll pull over, hunt you over,
Kick your ass, nightstick to your shoulder,
I know it's unjust, as if it wasn't enough,
If you try to fight back they're locking your ass up,
And Chuck already told you that a cell is hell,
But I'm waiting for the phone so I'll sit for a spell,
Call the guard, tell him I'm a piece of God,
With no beliefs in his streets or his boulevards,
I eat, read so my mental is hard,
And the heat from my anger just melted the bars,
They reach for their guns so I put them to sleep,
Break the chains and put the shoes back on my feet,
He's on the loose with no discernible scars or marks,
Just the mind of Mandela and the heart of Rosa Parks,
So I dip, time to see the governor and mayor, Tell them life ain't fair and see if they care, Well they do, but only if they are the heir, So they appear to have a heart and make a flair, But they haven't done shit for us and that's a fact, Their only function is to keep the funny money where it's at, And it causes pain, stress, Ask me if we need a different way of life (yes), Headline: Bush steals the presidency, He needs the backing of the media what could the remedy be? The country's headed for recession reminiscent of the Great Depression, Are lives worth a world of power? Easy question, Planes hit the towers and the Pentagon, Killing those the government wasn't dependant on, It's easy to control the scared so they keep us in fear, With their favorite Middle Eastern demon named Bin Laden this year, Bush disguises blood lust as patriotism, Convincing the living to love "Operation Let's Get 'Em", But when he realized we don't support their attacks, They needed something to distract, hmm, anthrax, This further demonizes Afghanis, So Americans cheer while we kill their innocent families, And what better place to start a war, To build a pipeline to get the oil that they had wanted before, America supported the Taliban, To get Russia out of Afghanistan, That's how they got the arms in, They're in a war against the Northern Alliance, And we can't build a pipeline in hostile environments, Here's what your history books won't show: You're a dead man for fucking with American dough, They killed several birds with one stone, While you're at home with anti-terrorism up in your dome, But my eyes are wide open and my TV is off, Great, 'cause I save on my electricity cost, And you can wave that piece of shit flag if you dare, But they killed us because we've been killing them for years.
