[Intro: George Bush]
that says fool me once... shame on... shame on you.

I live in a nation that relies on business and crime
Who bullshit like everyone else for a nickel and dime
Using freedom and entertainment just to keep us sedated
All men are equal and that's the way they're created?
And this country still breeds racism, just not as blatant
Cause ain't NOBODY free. We all being watched quietly
Drug Trafficking, conspiracy, murder and piracy
Sometimes violently, open up your eyes and see
It's all backwards like negative split photography
United we stand on this land and we do all crimes

"Facin' a dyin' nation. Listen to the retold lies" (x2)
[Deacon the Villain]
Now it's silent strikes from political insiders
Ran by bloodlines that were dirty before Isis
Confessionals filled with sexual molestations
They don't notice their children freebasin' in their million
Babies having babies in the hood I grew up in
Schools underfunded, graduates retain nothing
Kids like, why should I think about college
And even if I fought and bought the knowledge
Shiiiiit.. So wherever you are
Motivate yourself don't just stand on the side


Somebody dial 9-1-1
At last we losin' Uncle Sam to a mass of tumors
If its true that the beast is soon to decease
That runs through his veins and up thru his brain
If he was low income he'd already been gone
And scandalous friends call to speak
With a pointed hat, where the ointment at?
Woulda had a Catholic priest at his bedside
Temperature stay high but no pain
Product of old age and Alzheimers disease
Looks to the American people to show love
