Wake Up Lyrics


Come on!

Although ya try to discredit
ya still never edit
the needle i'll thread it
radically poetic
standing with the fury that they had in '66
and like E-double im mad
still knee-deep in the systems s***
hoover, he was a body remover
ill give ya a dose
but it can 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
cause all these punks got bullets in their heads
departments of police(what)the judges(what)the feds(the feds)

Networks at work, keepin people calm
ya 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 gotta, whadda i gotta do to wake ya up
to shake you up, to break the structure up
cause blood still flows in the gutter
im 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 the left upon the fascists
yea, the several federal men
who pulled schemes on the dream,
and put it to an end

ya better beware, or retribution with mind war
20/20 visions, and murals with metaphors

Networks at work, keepin people calm
ya know the murdered X
then 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 (2 times)

i think i heard a shot (5 times)

*spoken* Black Nationalism
'He may be a real contender for this position should he
abandon his supposed obediance to white liberal doctrine
of non-violence...and embrace black nationalism'
'Through counter-intelligence it should be possible to
pinpoint potential trouble-makers...And neutralize them,
neutralize them, neutralize them'

Wake up! Wake up! Wake up! Wake up!
Wake up! Wake up! Wake up! Wake up!

How long? Not long, cause what you reap is what you sow
