    I know a silent nation in dislocation
    Frustration from legislation
    Led to demographic in isolation
    Another participation in decapitation
    10-4 die river deep mountain high
    Is a wall stuck between dying and doing time
    Cant ignore smack dab border war
    As the beat goes on, words flowed on
    I caught the law
    Pyramids machu pichu
    Things they don't teach you
    Don't apologize
    You were here first on this earth
    Before these millennial cowboys claimed their turf
    Now who's 1000 miles and ran
    Deserted in the desert
    Wild wild west hurt to the dirt
    Anti immigration
    Against brown swkin
    Sounds like brown shirts
    Silenced by so called legal violence
    Somebody had permission
    To put humans in this condition
    This land is who's land??
    They must've forgot
    Kicking the black in the ass
    While keeping the brown out
    This one sided law makes me scream and shout
    I. c. e. is what I'm talking about

    [Sgt Hawke]
    Sgt hawke and I'm found where the cop be
    I get on illegals like I'm a paparazzi
    You see the flash but it ain't a camera
    Gunfire shells hot enough to damage ya
    No trafficking no drug smuggling
    I.c.e and we came in thugging
    Straight off the wire like snoop and chris
    You get rush like limbargh we get at you quick

    [Sekreto (translated in english)]
    What will they do when they find out about this
    Come for me, for what I represent
    This is my accent and I'm proud of it.
    We're bunches and cannot be stopped
    Absurd laws with racist intentions
    Benefit only to these classifiers
    They insist, I insist - so here we go
    Broken chains, jumping borders
    Thrive or die, we're no longer satisfied
    Its time for power to change hands
    More righteous humans, is more human rights
    They say, they owners, but we were here first
    The world is free and without fear we broadcast
    Multi-color race, is how we're painted
    I have a dream and that dream has become my desire
    Power to my peoples, not power to the governments

    [Chuck D]
    Car radios highway hoes
    Motorbike types
    Skateboard whores watch em close them doors
    Clap them hands and stomp them feet
    To more government wars
    Good man bad government
    Great driver wack car
    So I seen it before
    Marxism dual citizens
    China support
    Meaning yall go get a passport
    Slavery is americas past sport
    Homeland security
    Against my homeboys securing me
    Chained brains diaspora
    Comin nafta
    The same idea of the united states of africa
    Bering strait
    Before palin and paleface
    Waiting for the ice to break
    70% of americans ain't been no place
    So the human race gets displaced
    While the greedy man
    Sees the land
    His plan
    Seize the land
    To feed his face
    A child lost in the wild
    Picked your food
    Built your house
    While still on exile
    Barbed wire and cactus the new middle passage
    To a person
    This new whirl odors just rehearsing

    [Marcus J]
    By the time I get to the end of my verse
    Calisthenics of the tongue exercising the first
    That's freedom of speech so I speak my right
    Seems to me there will always be powers to fight
    So chuck let them know that the bulls break ice
    With the power of these words that we put within a mic
    Like those in the past put power to pen
    It was number 13 made us all equal men
    Now arizona back to legislate the hate
    Guess freedom ain't free on this side of the gate
    But everything changes if I look a certain way
    Securing the homeland from how it was made
    Now the ice that we skate upon is definitely thin
    But we got to break bad to let the good begin
    A cold flag pole grabbed a hold of my tongue
    5-0 froze and we all got dumb

    One man's terrorist, another's freedom fighter
    Future tech molotov cocktails and a lighter
    Legalized gang shit, federal b.i.
    You wanna buy a weapon, they won't hesitate a second
    Wether african, mexican, middle east of haitian
    They'll slaughter the indigenous and plunder your nation
    Petition the u.n. to gain legal traction
    Then call you the enemy to justify the action
    The brown in this world is to draw ire
    Of the secret society soul sucking vampire
    Either I come from a long line of liars
    Or a degenerate senator's pants are on fire
    Surround you with walls to protect freedom
    Over-lapping laws to ensure confusion
    Protect your neck in the 2012 season
    Then bounce a check in the bank of illusion

    [Professor Griff]
    Home grown terrorist, for the benefit
    Can't find a title or a name that truly fits
    These land jackers, pale face land grabbers
    Caught in a border war, the stench from the border whores
    Real demons, feinin for a real reason
    Can't truss em cause they always fuckin schemin.
    Broke treaty's wit the redman, they said dam
    Klan disqized as fam, fuck uncle sam

    Pause for the cause, open the mental doors
    Foreign invaders, human traffic traders
    Un-documented worker, want it back
    Panic when the brown man link wit the pro blacks

    Who's the real citizen, have you ever been
    You raped and robbed every people that ever let you in
    Legalized theft , of the natives land
    Speak with a fork tongue, rum and gun in hand

    The I c e,
    Who get's deported and who goes free
    Who get's detained and remains
    Who get's a card and who gets the blame
