lyrics

We in the age of information
Few role models and viral inflammation
Distracting the masses, all these Temptations
Running away with me, it was just my imagination

Burn through the lies a lyrical conflagration
Of everything playing on these television stations
Rare demo tape from a Midwest basement
Mic check 2-1-2, here go my statement

At the epicenter of the DMV
The newest preconceived stunt aired on TMZ
So the all the real things happening, we won’t see
Court-side to game that we won't peep
The way they move and Creep just like TLC
They so C.L Smooth
I Rock hard like Pete
With these gems and truth
Needed Negro News
Cutting Free speech in the living room
I don’t need no booth


Ok, ladies and gentlemen
Boys and girls
Everybody on the web
And the whole wide world
From the first to the 2nd, even the 3rd world
For the ones with straight hair and the ones with curls

Listen, open up your eyes and ears, yea
You need to know
How and why we got here, yea
You need to know
No lies just the real, yea
You need to know
Don’t let nobody tell you otherwise cuz
You need to know

Ok, ladies and gentlemen
Boys and girls
Everybody on the web
And the whole wide world
From the first to the 2nd, even the 3rd world
For the ones with straight hair and the ones with curls

Listen, open up your eyes and ears, yea
You need to know
How and why we got here, yea
You need to know
No lies just the real, yea
You need to know
Don’t let nobody tell you otherwise cuz


Now we got pop instead rap
FOX instead of facts
And now we C the SPAN of the cultural collapse
Everything we CNN in the media is Headline News
Premeditated and defeasible

The hidden agenda
Created by somebody still wearing suspenders
The powers that be and all their wonderful splendor
Pour the poison in your cup and sweeten it with a Splenda
Let me spit an addendum

Gotta Believe none of what you hear
And half of what you see
Especially when produced and packaged on TV
They got us yelling stay woke, now we don’t sleep
Make us Spend it all and stay broke, now we don’t eat
How we on the same team, yet they making us compete?
So the quest for unity remains forever incomplete
Yea they post lies, lather rinse, then it all repeats
I’m loading truth in the clip then driving by in these streets


Ok, ladies and gentlemen
Boys and girls
Everybody on the web
And the whole wide world
From the first to the 2nd, even the 3rd world
For the ones with straight hair and the ones with curls

Listen, open up your eyes and ears, yea
You need to know
How and why we got here, yea
You need to know
No lies just the real, yea
You need to know
Don’t let nobody tell you otherwise cuz
You need to know

Ok, ladies and gentlemen
Boys and girls
Everybody on the web
And the whole wide world
From the first to the 2nd, even the 3rd world
For the ones with straight hair and the ones with curls

Listen, open up your eyes and ears, yea
You need to know
How and why we got here, yea
You need to know
No lies just the real, yea
You need to know
Don’t let nobody tell you otherwise cuz
You need to know
