The new age is upon us.
And yet the past refuses to rest in its shallow grave.
For those who hide behind the false image of the son of man
Shall stand before God!!!
It has begun…The beginning of the end.
The voice of racism preaching the gospel is devilish.
A fake church called the prophet Muhammad a terrorist.
Forgetting God is not a religion, but a spiritual bond
And Jesus is the most quoted prophet in the Qu’ran.
They bombed innocent people, tryin’ to murder Saddam.
When you gave him those chemical weapons to go to war with Iran.
This is the information that they hold back from Peter Jennings
Cause Condoleeza Rice is just a new age Sally Hemmings.
I break it down with critical language and spiritual anguish
The Judas I hang with, the guilt of betraying Christ
Through murdered and stole his religion, and painting him white.
Translated in psychologically tainted philosophy.
Conservative political right wing, ideology.
Glued together sloppily, the blasphemy of a nation.
Got my back to the wall, cause I’m facin’ assassination.
Guantanamo Bay, federal incarceration.
How could this be, the land of the free, home of the brave?
Indigenous holocaust, and the home of the slaves.
Corporate America, dancin’ offbeat to the rhythm.
You really think this country, never sponsored terrorism?
Human rights violations, we continue the saga.
El Savador and the contras in Nicaragua.
And on top of that, you still wanna take me to prison
Just cause I won’t trade humanity for patriotism.
It’s like MK-ULTRA, controlling your brain.
Suggestive thinking, causing your perspective to change.
They wanna rearrange the whole point of view of the ghetto.
The fourth branch of the government, want us to settle.
A bandana full of glittering, generality
Fighting for freedom and fighting terror, but what’s reality?
Read about the history of the place that we live in
And stop letting corporate news tell lies to your children.
Flow like the blood of Abraham through the Jews and the Arabs
Broken apart like a woman’s heart, abused in a marriage.
The brink of holy war, bottled up, like a miscarriage
Embedded correspondents don’t tell the source of the tension.
And they refuse to even mention, European intervention
Or the massacres in Jenin, the innocent screams.
U.S. manufactured missles, and M-16’s.
Weapon contracts and corrupted American dreams.
Media censorship, blocking out the video screens.
A continent of oil kingdoms, bought for a bargain.
Democracy is just a word, when the people are starvin’.
The average citizen, made to be, blind to the reason.
A desert full of genocide, where the bodies are freezin’.
And the world doesn’t believe that you fightin’ for freedom
Cause you fucked the Middle East, and gave birth to a demon.
It’s open season with the CIA, bugging my crib
Trapped in a ghetto region like a Palestinian kid.
Where nobody gives a fuck whether you die or you live.
I’m tryin’ to give the truth, and I know the price is my life
But when I’m gone they’ll sing a song about Immortal Technique.
Who beheaded the President, and the princes and sheiks.
You don’t give a fuck about us, I can see through your facade
Like a fallen angel standing in the presence of God.
Bitch niggaz scared of the truth, when it looks at you hard.
