Lyrics

[Intro - News segment]

"Reuters is reporting on the situation in Detroit today. It turns out the authorities recently cut off the water to Detroit residents and... and because of some international pressure, they actually turned it back on for a brief amount of time and I think it was about thirty days they turned the water back on and, you know, the international news story kind... new stories kind of quieted down for a little bit. Well now, they just turned it off again."

[Verse 1]

Ayo, whats going on out here?
I'm seeing things coming to a head
Y'all bubble 'bout to burst
It's bigger than religion
Shit getting worse
It's time to make a decision
Pick a side, choice is live or die
Let your soul be the guide
It's more than just pride
Divide is the downfall
No more talks at your town halls
Times are wasting, my summation's this
Build up your arsenal
What the world's coming to we can't undo
From what I'm seeing is
The government is triggering a race war
Can't be settled by a friendly game of base ball
Nations clashing
First it was Al-Qaeda now it's ISIS
Who's wicked and who's righteous?
I'm on the fence about who's really real
And who's shifty
My trust level is reduced to paranoia
Below the standards of a lawyer
Losing a case based on the defence of Tom Sawyer
Extinction agendas with devils in attendance
Marked for death 'cos of my past and descendants
My passion I vent it
Giving y'all images and flashes
Of what's on the horizon
In this game, my name on a blacklist
For speaking my piece
Many assassin's bullet wanna put me to sleep

[Interlude - News segment]

"Chicago's south side. These streets are home to some of the most dangerous gangs in America. Last year there were more murders here than in any other city in the United States"

[Verse 2]

Yeah, my gusto's fuelled by talk later but shoot now
Anything else is just futile
If it's useless, frivolous
Or don't serve a cause for me and mines
It's a waste of time
Live by merit if it's worthy of the effort
If not, I'd rather die from thirst out in the desert
In real life certain things just can't be prevented
So while I'm here I'll serve my penance
Praying for absolution, my brain is a weapon
The doctor plans and plots
Hoping I don't lose it
Anti to the system
O's not a christian
Fuck self pity 'cos I'm far from a victim
Mars ain't my mission, listen
People are told if they're not saved
They on a road to perdition
My drive's like an engine
If being self sufficient is a sin, then
Straight to hell I'm descending
This new world criminal [?]
Mischievous and foul and wild like gremlins
Bombs hit Syria
Wiping out men, women and kids in the area
The bully is America
Will benders
Never thought about enlisting
No disrespect to soldiers but false pretences under
Evil regimes, controlling resources
Using the armed forces for war endorsements
