Does the court system employ racists? Then why are so many black boys in cages? Why shouldn’t I be paranoid of hatred? Just look at the curious case of Troy Davis Let travel on down to savannah In the state of Georgia just south of Atlanta Where they wave the rebel flag like a bandanna Hung our ancestors then posed for the camera A white police officer was shot and killed Over and argument he tried stop and heal And here’s where the plot gets real The main suspect blamed Troy went to the cops and squealed And with no physical evidence or weapon Troy was arrested for a 187 He said he was innocent man was a when he was questioned But they said that he did it who needs a damn confession They just need is a witness they can press to cry Tell em what to say or they arrest the guy Then Put em on the stand and make em testify Swear to god to tell the truth and do they best to lie And they did so troy was found guilty Sent to death row by police so filthy Even though his innocence is true We pray they don’t reminisce over you But the truth always comes to light And Troy Davis didn’t give up the fight He kept filing appeals until it was reveled The state of Georgia wants an an innocent man killed That’s why a who’s who wants him out cause there’s just too much doubt And witness after witness came forward and admitted the only reason they did it cause the police insisted so wicked so vicious The system’s broke so fixed 2 decades no Christmas Execution dates 4 listed get organized show resistance go online sign those petitions Black Americans know the difference It’s a new day but the same old lynchings I am Troy Davis families destroyed be cases why can’t we avoid the Matrix instead of giving his children toys to play with he’s waiting his execution hoping the court stays it I’m praying and doing we need action we need movement cause his innocence is true I pray they don’t reminisce over you

Welcome to America's Most Livable City Please ignore the invisibles with me See Pittsburgh rebuilt it's economy But we still lead the Nation in black poverty Welcome to America's Most Livable City Just ignore the invisibles with me And state ya business, cause here the place ya living depends on ya race and privilege They call it clipsburgh pistolvania Where block dictators will launch missiles to bang ya Where hot metal come whistling out the chamber To maim ya twisting you like wrestlemania And what's crazier the bishop wont pray for ya Ya families so poor they can't even afford a crate for ya And in them skyscrapers Brah they can't wait for us To move out the hood so they can take it lace it up Transit cuts a brother can't even take the bus This is the ugly truth no need to make it up Then some magazine comes along and places us As most livable in the USA what? Say what? Guess they didn't survey us Cause life is cut shorter than razors where they raise us Judges are racists and quick to hang us And police taze us until we never wake up Welcome to America's Most Livable City Please ignore the invisibles with me See Pittsburgh rebuilt it's economy But we still lead the Nation in black poverty Welcome to America's Most Livable City Just ignore the invisibles with me And state ya business, cause here the place ya living depends on ya race and privilege And downtown it's a bunch of new buildings Glass and steel cathedrals the cost a few million They make billions to treat a dudes illness With medicine and pharmaceuticals so who's dealing But the schools are failing screw children Just make sure the office has a see through ceiling Pitt University and CMU killin classes cost thousands I don't see you fill em How we gonna get a job in biotechnology if all we ever learn is survival psychology and why we so poor if yall revived the economy but we don't get nothing besides and apology Tear down the projects and put up a target then build new homes so they can stimulate the market But move us out the neighborhood so we can never harvest the only thing we guaranteed in Pittsburgh is charges Welcome to America's Most Livable City Please ignore the invisibles with me See Pittsburgh rebuilt it's economy But we still lead the Nation in black poverty Welcome to America's Most Livable City Just ignore the invisibles with me And state ya business, cause here the place ya living depends on ya race and privilege

What if the tea party was black Holding guns like the Black Panther Party was back If Al was Rush Limbaugh and Jesse was Sean Hannity And Tavis was Glenn Beck would they harm they families If Sarah Palin was suddenly Sistah Soaljah Would they leave it with the votes or go and get the soldiers Yall know if the tea party was black The government would have been had the army attack What if Michael Baisden was on ya FM dial For 3 hours every day calling the president foul Would they say free speech or find evidence how To charge him with treason like see he's unamerican now What if Minister Farrakhan prayed for the death Of the commander in chief that he be laid to rest Would they treat it as the gravest threat or never make an arrest Even today he's still hated for less What if President Obama would have lost the election Quit his job so he could go talk to the left and Bash the government for being off of direction Fraught with deception And told black people they want all of our weapons And we want our own country and called for secession Would he be arrested and tossed in corrections For trying to foster aggression Against the people's lawful selection Our questions What if the tea party was black Holding guns like the Black Panther Party was back If Al was Rush Limbaugh and Jesse was Sean Hannity And Tavis was Glenn Beck would they harm they families If Sarah Palin was suddenly Sistah Soaljah Would they leave it with the votes or go and get the soldiers Yall know if the tea party was black The government would have been had the army attack What If black people went on Facebook and made a page That for the death if the president elect we prayed Would the creators be tazed and thrown in a cage We know the page wouldn't have been displayed all these days What if Jeremiah Wright said that everybody white Wasn't a real America would you feel scared of him If he had a militia with pictures that depict the president as Hitler They would kill and bury that Wait What if Cynthia McKinney lamented the winning of the new president And hinted he wasn't really a true resident With no proof or evidence Would the media treat it like a huge press event They would have attacked whatever group she represents They would have called her a kook on precedent And any network that gave her due preference Would be the laughing stock of the news so our question is What if the tea party was black Holding guns like the Black Panther Party was back If Al was Rush Limbaugh and Jesse was Sean Hannity And Tavis was Glenn Beck would they harm they families If Sarah Palin was suddenly Sistah Soaljah Would they leave it with the votes or go and get the soldiers Yall know if the tea party was black The government would have been had the army attack

Scott Walker works for multi billionaires John Boehner works for multi billionaires while corporations get billions in welfare and millions in this country been out of work for years Sarah Palin works for multi billionaires American workers vs multi billionaires they wanna end social security and medicare while millions in this country don't have a dime to spare Can main street get a bailout Tell the president our checks weren't mailed out Tell the house of representatives and senate And whatever business got the stimulus and spent it Now they getting record profit that's tripling with no limits But they cutting jobs and unemployment benefits have ended How we gone live with no income coming in And the little help we get is cut from the budget then What's the role of government Do workers stand a chance if multi billionaires are running it Oh now you worried bout the deficit and cutting it But when them banks needed billions you had enough for them. Them car companies you had bucks for them 2 wars rebuilding 2 countries guess we stuck with them the average citizen just ain't lucky then cause we be getting pimped so I guess we getting fucked again Rush Limbaugh works for multi billionaires Bill O'Reilly works for multi billionaires while corporations get billions in welfare and millions in this country been out of work for years Sean Hannity works for multi billionaires Crazy Glenn Beck works for multi billionaires they wanna end social security and medicare while millions in this country don't have a dime to spare When did the American worker become the enemy Why is wanting a living wage such a penalty What happened to justice and liberty These billionaire haters wanna crush us literally On the box is Murdoch and his foxes And if you watch it you might as well be an ostrich They terrorists cause they hold facts hostage 24 hours straight of we hate what Barack did If you want to unionize your a communist But if you buy a congressman they just call you a lobbyist It's so obvious but here's where the problem is they act like regular Americans but they sloppy rich Why you think they wanna cut taxes cause every single one of them in the higher brackets This ain't white or black it's class warfare time for action Just look at wide the gap is American workers vs multi billionaires The middle class vs multi billionaires while corporations get billions in welfare and millions in this country been out of work for years Rupert Murdoch is multi billionaires the Koch brothers are multi Billionaire they wanna end social security and medicare while millions in this country don't have a dime to spare

And I too shed tears on 9-11 asking God why looking for the signs in heaven But let me remind the reverend When it came to lynching the Christian knights were behind the weapons When burning crosses in the nighttime were present In the name of Jesus we were terrorized no question Our hurt is the witness but we aint hate the church or religion We put the blame on the person who did it you should search for forgiveness this verse for the critics you're totally wrong why did Thomas Jefferson have a Holy Qur'an when you mention radicals why is it only Islam wasn't Timothy McVeigh OK with a bomb didn't the government fund Saddam and the Taliban in Afghanistan before it was Obama's Vietnam didn't ya forefathers come to these shores and waters to escape persecution religious wars and slaughter and wrote the Constitution will you ignore the authors without freedom of religion then do you see us as citizens burning Qur'ans just leads to more division ain't that what the terrorist wanted which sides really winning Imagine being denied a place to pray in America where your just trying to make a way Is this the land of the free I think it's safe to say we coming face to face with hate today wasted racists make it seem like Islam's the enemy callin Obama a Muslim want him gone like Kennedy wasn't love thy neighbor how Jesus formed his ministry but I don't qualify cause I'm the wrong identity say good bye integrity and so long dignity They say it's not religion just the mosque vicinity to Ground Zero then dishonor the 1st responders by denying em health care is that how you crown heroes this is the way truth sounds in ya earlobe stop listening to those Fox clowns and weirdos how you gonna justify vilifying and hating when the funder of the Kingdom foundation owns ya station and if it's about freedom what are we really debating if we all brothers and sisters why aren't we relating they say it's about respect then call us terrorists Nazis, jihadists, but never Americans

Look what Sarah Palin done started A bunch of candidates with the intellect of starlets On the surface they seem like they're harmless But what if they win and end they up in congress The result would be carnage I'm just being honest How high's your education if you can't name your college I guess your resume needed polish I'm you you not me that's y'all witch Look what at what they'll do to win a office Pour 100 million dollars down a faucet Now that's flossin but you cut cost when Them undocumented workers you was bossin And whose crazier than Michelle Bachman And the loonies in that tea party caucus Plus her wild eye ranting causes More shame for Minnesota than all the texting Farve did Republican Woman stay away from me Republican woman you are so crazy Don't come hanging ya signs on my door I don't wanna see ya debate no more I got more important things to do That waste my vote casting it on you Now woman I said stay away Republican woman listen what I say Dear God I wonder could you save me Cause these republican women are so crazy Like that Governor out west in AZ Saying we got headless bodies but still come my state please And she must have never heard of debating Really, how do you mess up on ya opening statement plus ya hatin made ya state look racist The fact that your even governor's amazing It's like they candidates don't even know the basics but if you watch em they use the same playlist every time they see the press they skating unless it fox news where they can do fund raising if they positions not popular they change em hoping Rush, Hannity and Beck can save em They faker than wrestling it's something to see they even drafted the chick from WWE Republican Woman stay away from me Republican woman you are so crazy Don't come hanging ya signs on my door I don't wanna see ya debate no more I got more important things to do That waste my vote casting it on you Now woman I said stay away Republican woman listen what I say

Put ya lighters up Put ya lighters up now put ya money down they need the midis touch This is war lace my gloves let the fighters touch Haitians are dying plus they're fate lies with us Put ya lighters up Put ya lighters up now put ya money down they need the midis touch This is war lace my gloves let the fighters touch Haitians are dying plus they're fate lies with us After the quake hit we donated with no patience to see if the dough made it then the days went and the saints win reporters that came went so no more statements Or pages and the funds raised went to the same pimps so nobody was paid shit and then it started raining attention we stopped paying so who was gonna save em Then Wyclf went and announced that he was running for president so Haiti took precedent but his charity was accused of negligence Sean Penn lectured him said he wasn't present when people needed betterment and Pras questioned him and his experience if the people elected him said they needed veterans so many pressured him poor Clef even his family they threaten them then we found out cause he wasn't a resident that the country he loved he couldn't represent I guess the lesson is that politics is more gangster than the record biz hell yes it is and since Clef is out, then the press is out but the people are still left without with a less amount while the rest accounts for overhead costs crucified on a red cross and now a year later and the fears greater they need so much more than just to hear prayers Haiti needs sincere care not showing up with a camera to show that we're there cause they raised billions but didn't raise building and the soldiers they aint stop the killings they was guarding banks inside armored tanks while mothers and fathers sank it makes my heat just break see these forces are that cold they want their resources the black gold while we kept are distance through the epidemic I got an idea let's prevent it how much could we change if we all represented with the best intentions while the rest lamented if you got jokes put the mic down a voice with no value makes Cipher Sounds
