Lyrics Wake Up

Come on uh
Come on
Although ya try to discredit
Ya still never edit the needle I'll thread it
Radically poetic
Standin' with the fury that they had in sixty six
And like E double I'm mad
Still knee deep in the system's shit
Hoover he was a body remover
I'll give ya a dose
But it will never come close to the rage
Built up inside of me
Fist in the air in the land of hypocrisy
Movements come and movements go
Leaders speak movements cease
When their heads are flown
'Cos all these punks got bullets in their heads
Departments of police
The judges, the feds
Networks at work keepin' people calm
You know they went after King when he spoke out on Vietnam
He turned the power to the have nots
And then came the shot
Yeah back in this
Wit' poetry my mind I flex
Flip like Wilson
Vocals never lackin' dat finesse
Whadda I got to, whadda I got to do to wake ya up to shake ya up to break the structure up
'Cos blood still flows in the gutter
I'm like takin' photos
Mad boy kicks open the shutter
Set the groove
Then stick and move like I was Cassius
Rep the stutter step then bomb a left upon the fascists
The several federal men who pulled schemes on the dream
And put it to an end
Ya better beware of retribution with mind war
Twenty twenty visions and murals with metaphors
Networks at work
Keepin' people calm
Ya know they murdered X
And tried to blame it on Islam
He turned the power to the have nots
And then came the shot
What was the price on his head
What was the price on his head
I think I heard a shot
I think I heard a shot
I think I heard a shot
I think I heard a shot
I think I heard a shot
I think I heard
I think I heard a shot
Wake up
Wake up
Wake up
Wake up
Wake up
Wake up
Wake up
Wake up
How long?
Not long
'Cos what you reap is what you sow
