Our society is fucked up, they're fucking our brothers and sisters up
These white motherfuckers have fucked us up...

Cameras, action, lights
What, lookout, civil rights
Whiplash, po-po, fed-lillers, killin' kids
Crisis, c'mon, get it now, sound

Projects, pop offs, issues, payback
Sickness, lockdown, get it

Low tempo to go off, COINTEL better go to hell
Bout that time hear the bell y'all .. (c'mon)
Gotta lotta nerve never knowing Assata
Gotcha mind wading in the water.. contract.. Gotcha!
