  • Lie down, (fair one, pheromone), and come away
    Till the rain is over and gone
    G-G-Gimme the beat now (Face the music)
    Lead line (Face the music)

    If the air is a little thick in this room tonight
    I reckon it's the result of an onslaught of separatist rookies
    Overcome by this colorful sight

    Talkin' so fast that even they
    Talkin' so fast that even they
    Don't know what they mean

    Of all the things that base a rhyme
    How is it that you every time
    Regurgitate the racist lines that keep us apart?

    Thank God this ain't Monopoly
    You'd make us all go back to start

    Race
    In the space I mark human (Face the music)
    Race
    Face the music
    We all bones when we dead

    Race
    In the space I mark human (Face the music)
    Cut me, cut you
    Both the blood is red

    I gotcha

    Race
    Race

    Check it

    Three seats over there's a lady black
    Entrusted to her care is a little white girl
    And the fact of the matter is

    Before her momma or another kid at school
    Tells her about the fallacy that one race rules over the other
    She'd be a much-better-off-left fool (Face the music)

    If we never heard about the evils that those before us committed
    Then how my dear, tell me now how my dear, tell me now how now would we know

    And then the band say

    Race
    In the space I mark human (Face the music)
    Race
    Face the music
    We all bones when we dead

    Race
    In the space I mark human (Face the music)
    Cut me, cut you
    Both the blood is red

    I gotcha

    Race
    Race
    (Face the music)

    D-d-down with h-i-s-t-o-r-y and all this BS propagandi
    Keepin' you from me and me from you as we grow
    I don't want to know (I don't want to know)
    Why those before us hated each other

    I'd rather believe they never did
    I'd rather believe (I'd rather, I'd rather believe)
    That there's hope for a kid

    And if he imitates the best
    I guess that's what I'll try to be
    And I will let the rest dissolve with my guitar underneath the sea

    Race
    (Face face face face face)
    Face the music (Face the music)
    Face the music

    Race
    In the space I mark human (Face the music)
    Race
    Face the music
    We all bones when we dead

    Race
    In the space I mark human (Face the music)
    Cut me, cut you
    Both the blood is red

    Get it?
    Race
    Got it

    Race
    Face the music
    Race race
    (Face face face the music)
    Race race
    (Face face face the music)
    Race race
    Race race
    (Face-F-Face the music)

    Race
