    Truth decay brush up on your facts.
    All you gotta do is check them stats
    But what sense is a census
    When they just miss us
    But enlist us to fight for their justice
    Truth decay brush up on your facts.
    All you gotta do is check them stats
    But what sense is a census
    When they just miss us
    But enlist us to fight for their justice

    [Chuck D]
    Truth is truth
    No matter what I think
    Knowledge is power
    But it ain't
    If you cant occupy your own body & mind
    See thru the blind
    In this place full a lies
    Television tellin lies
    To your vision and face
    Seems like more of us in prison
    Than the workplace
    Gettin gadgets
    So it's easy to forget
    Economics
    No money
    Not a damn thing funny
    Some diggin every minute of it
    I'm hatin every second of it
    Driven
    Ever since I heard the lie about thanksgiving
    While in still thankful through all that fibbin
    The truth dies while lies make a living
    History games
    Playing stealing family names
    Slave names turned into government names
    Name of the game is to hide that game
    And them lies living on with no shame ..no lie

    [Chorus]
    Truth decay brush up on your facts.
    All you gotta do is check them stats
    But what sense is a census
    When they just miss us
    But enlist us to fight for their justice
    Truth decay brush up on your facts.
    All you gotta do is check them stats
    But what sense is a census
    When they just dismiss us
    But enlist us to grow and pick their stuff

    [Chuck D]
    Truth is truth
    No matter what I think
    I ain't drunk
    Cause I don't drink
    Don't smoke
    Or
    Laugh at the facts like stupid ass jokes
    Or get lost in my own sauce, I check the source
    I challenge information
    Trace it to the boss
    Refuse to accept the truth
    When it be be lost
    Lies in the key of new songs
    You think it's old news
    How come the young don't know
    It ain't new because you never knew
    I tell them, it's only new to you
    Opinion is what it is and its up to you
    The challenge information
    To see if it's true
    Never have so many been screwed by so few
    You heard I'm using it for this song too
    Damn crooks
    Ask a question get some stupid ass looks
    Truth don't sell a lotta records or books
    To hell with rapes to murder rates
    To lyin on a mixtapes
    I want the truth

    [Chorus]
    Truth decay brush up on your facts.
    All you gotta do is check them stats
    But what sense is a census
    When they just miss us
    But enlist us to fight for their justice
    Truth decay brush up on your facts.
    All you gotta do is check them stats
    But what sense is a census
    When they forget us
    We were here first
    The term indigenous
