  • [Chuck D]
    I occupy this state of mind
    Like I'm born a second time
    The masses ask the question why
    Them asses spend a life behind
    On the mic the pic
    Against this prison industry
    Where most of them look just like me
    Mf'-k the tea party
    Made you pay for education
    Got no money got you waitin
    Tricks to keep the people fooled
    Something in the food my dude
    About your future where you rank
    Who you think and who you thank
    Behind the banks and all them tanks
    New whirl odor on the brink
    Revolution stop the feds
    Count the homeless under fed
    Sue the pharmaceutical off the meds
    Leavin people left for dead
    Look back 80 years instead
    Simply blamed it on the reds
    Pay close attention to what is said
    But while you listen watch your heads.
    You chase the money you chase the fame
    The human race is what they're playing
    A game of life is what I'm sayin
    Split em up call them names
    At the age I am if I can't teach
    I shouldn't open my mouth to speak
    Talking loud and sayin nothing
    And frontin like they doin something
    Feel the people
    Heal the people
    Power goes out
    To the people
    18-35 is grown
    Cant afford to leave the home
    Can't afford to buy a home
    Can't afford to keep a home
    Boarded up foreclosed cribs
    Based on whatcha bank did
    Yet see these guys advertise to the poor for clothes
    The doors are closed
    They slam the doors on your nose
    Who the hell is telling you
    What the hell they selling you
    Why the hell do you believe
    Where we headed when we leave

    WTF?
    WTF?
    WTF?

    [Flavor Flav]
    From barack obama to flavor flav
    We both be a first till we get to our grave
    I'm the first hype man in music
    He's the first black president
    He's the first black resident
    To be ever come president
    Free your mind your ass will follow
    Flavor flav all the way to the apollo
    Freeport li to la
    Throw a frito olay off the dock of the bay
    You wanna know why a kid goes to school?
    And in his book-bag he carries a tool
    Because hes trying to be like his idols in the streets
    Gang warfare to the raw fare
    Don't even try to go up there
    Penalties that you cant bear
    You lose your sight your ass cant hear
    It weighs so much it'll crush your life
    Don't play with god he gave you live
    The last man standing he hopes to behold
    His weight in stature his weight in gold
    What goes in your wash comes out in your rinse
    Back down so tight that you call it condensed
    Cant stand the pressure, cant stand the pain
    My life is so dry I wish it would rain
    Just like the temptations not just the singing group
    I'm here to tell you now so don't ignore the scoop
    I been in this rap game for 25 years
    If we made the rock and roll hall of fame
    We deserve our chairs
    To what we fought the power to who stole the soul
    Brothers gonna work it out
    From the ground we hold
    God says to man ima let you live
    God says to man ima let you live
    God says to man ima give you power
    Not for the intent to misuse your power
    If you wanna dance you got to play the bands
    People die by other hands
    The innocent, the ku klux klan
    Iraq and iran an afhganistan
    They go to war they don't come back
    The note comes home killed in attack
    All the medals from fort bragg
    Collected by a widow along with the flag
    41 gun salute 4 jets in the air
    Now thats going out of style the
    Contribution was fear
    What you reap is what you sow
    A man got killed for what he know
    If you wanna be a -- and get a good wife
    Stay the fuck offa skype and don't believe the hype

    WTF?
    WTF?
    WTF?
