And if the revolution comes before I rise and wake I hope you understand I’ve struggled and I’ve made mistakes and all my yesterdays embarrassments I’ve just embraced because those lessons brought me where I firmly stand today fertilized by mentors, teachers, stoner types persevered through colonized indoctrinated lessons like Pastors preaching gospel flaunting Abercrombie steez and coaching high school athletes to get between their knees talking hypocrites on power trips but life wasn’t that bad brainwashed to believe we are free inside this land and in every single facet of society we see exploitation re-enforced through what you buy and eat politricking gimmicks in survival of the fittest object to your perspective so perplexing to a witness what’s a gift if you’re not giving, what’s a life if they keep taking enslavement of a nation so that war is second nature, no peace I don’t really have a home, what I thought was my tradition was contrived to keep me lost. in the midst of my retreat, I found love in a disaster no empire will defeat reinventing the design that the system serves the wallet, preaching run it on the man. get your knowledge take their profit. on a plane to Honolulu, 20 dollars in my pocket, never gonna get a job until it’s worth all of my options luminous glowing on fiber optics fluorescent generic rhyming on circuit boards with a vise grip arrive enlightenment by changing up my environment, disregarding the climate, faker than the horizon, keep on rising, flip the bird to ignite em, remind em we’ll never fold to authority or their violence so what’s my options, augmented by profit low-income the target, marginalize to market just a product of society’s stereotypes take the detriment they sending in as reason you fight so when your average joe and jane stop and stare at you twice, just an apathetic ignorant excuse for a life cockroaches they’ve tamed, train trapped in their ambition charging credit away streaming New Girl to Community the corporate sustained and you forget these very shows keep the elite in their place Donald Sterling sold the Clippers make a billion off his slaves and we follow sports statistics but are clueless to the way that our freedoms in this way of life enables war campaigns I’m not saying that I’m perfect but the status quo must change I’m not saying that I’m perfect but the status quo must change

Need to stop twiddling fingers and sit smoking the reefer Life steadily races, Time seizes your greatness, they're saying the rise of the people should not be possible profiteering on obstacles, irrevocably prodigals robbing you, lying and poisoning for their pocketbooks legislate, enslaving the populace into poverty propping GMOs through FDA and their subsidies cancerous in their recipes, breeding us into felonies cocking a doodle just at the crack of you running a headless chicken so mindless with indecision, right back at you, guide out the pony Fela and Frif, as the dog and pony show reconvenes on your t-v and I cease, desist the order of their disease ignorance or its apathy packaging to deceive and all silliness put aside our willingness makes us weak our silence is our defeat, as I'm toiling through the race, our reliance is what they need, if my taxes will go to war am I funding a terror scheme? resist, the order of their disease ignorance or its apathy, zombies are out to feed chump the truth is not the lie they're selling you the realest lie they bought and sold is advertised for you to own delivery right to your home teach your kids to lose their soul and I am guilty of the foe the people that I dearly love taught me meditation is the existing in the present love, we're too often disconnected, apprehended by obsession environment of our hypertension let go. the industry is in syncope, taking bigotry make it ancient history ever single inter-feed representing peace humility. building up an infantry of art evolved communities Or shall I replicate their excrement, representing marijuana they don't understand her essence yet. living being for your wellness,not abusing or rebelling. Let me take the time to paint it, you goody two shoes needs stop with your complaining always rearranging the degrees of your attack, hypocritical at the mass Stuck inside concept of don't do drugs, when the government poisons our food and our lungs Drink that sugar soda take another pill, the reason it's not legal is because it really heals.

And the struggle continues I drop bombs on palms begging peace over beats, born and slaved on an island 13 North, 144 east. Where America's day begins by the order of a gun, Anderson Air Force and Big Navy take up 1/3 of the sum Religion and patriotism got people in line, paying for cancer. Every corner store market got that GMO product, and these colors don't run but these prices keep us captive When I'm asked to pledge allegiance to a corporate oligarchy under guise of class warfare We are government property, human assets and collateral damage We are illegal, insurgents, unincorporated, organized territories adorned in manifest destiny We mistake jobs for opportunity and paychecks for freedom if you're poor, brown or gay they're trying to take your life So I rock a suit and tie to destroy the suited type, this song is called no regrets No regrets but I made mistakes and most my family just can't relate have you felt despair, a disillusioned state, fabricated ultimatums are the perfect bait pay an income tax, still enslaved /as the bottom bracket, pays a double rate bunch a Ultracrepidarians lust the fame sang started from the bottom and they dug their grave (fucka) what facts opinions will dictate pig puppets and sheeple are thirsty allegedly dropped out and back-slain burn rubber to hustle your past ways Keep fighting-for your rights-the movement Bright shining-a new light-conducive spark fire- to burn out-the useless No Regrets a lesson that's proven what facts opinions will dictate pig puppets and sheeple are thirsty allegedly dropped out and back-slain burn rubber to hustle your past ways Keep fighting-for your rights-the movement Bright shining-a new light-conducive spark fire- to burn out-the useless No Regrets a lesson that's proven More talk about their excuses, putting profit over solutions campaigning and slanging diffuses, education deduces confusion the military kills the innocent, the real gangs party city hill Big Banks are too big to fail, nah homie just too rich to jail Uncle Sam wants you to be useless. flooding all your news with enticing muses charge the credit card patronize abuses, oppressing poor folks into lush recruitment I call it victimization, basic needs into privatization, legislate wealth into their rotation, same bullshit on the radio stations I'm just saying, I was born on an island based on subjugation, Guahan to Guam took a transformation, now it's, shopping malls and military bases and I see it repeat, mitigated proclamations guarantee defeat we are owned by the owners of a war regime, extortion in the form of democracy (plutonomy) No regrets the only way bridges always burn with an aftertaste accolades are a bitter weight, past mistakes keep you wide awake nightmares in the day reoccurring dreams, scene after pheen buying finite tease city after county on bended knee, diasporas victimized from that corporate greed (c'mon) what facts opinions will dictate pig puppets and sheeple are thirsty alledgedly dropped out and backslain burn rubber to hustle your past ways Keep fighting-for your rights-the movement Bright shining-a new light-conducive spark fire- to burn out-the useless No Regrets a lesson that's proven what facts opinions will dictate pig puppets and sheeple are thirsty alledgedly dropped out and backslain burn rubber to hustle your past ways Keep fighting-for your rights-the movement Bright shining-a new light-conducive spark fire- to burn out-the useless No Regrets a lesson that's proven Fight back until we break the ballot, fuck that eviscerate the madness our clan instigate the traffic, despite NSA-ing tactics poverty's premeditated, might as well be prison wages corporations are raping slave heads, new slaves in the form of patrons - shopping to save it by the bargain, lining up for sales, driving thru just an option Johnson Johnson general mills Kellogg and nestle, coca cola, Procter & Gamble, Kraft and Pepsi CBS, Viacom, news corp and Disney poison to consume and advertise the jury Naked and Odwalla bullshitting bout organics nomenclatures paid into these asterisks Get live, cuz the truth is violent terror wars come with profit vices politicians accepting bribes then CEOs paying for your silence government keeps the cycle rampant kill the artist makaveli fashion No Regrets when my pockets empty No Regrets when they bailed out Wall Street

I used to write in cursive thought that penmanship was worthy I used to take my medicine and fluoride nice and early still fighting with my preaching to the members of the clergy but I promise I won't ever stop the focus of the journey we are all enslaved, played and so deranged from the illusions of the day. Egyptians then the Romans now the USA uses terror, fear and constant news to keep us in a cage Lost inside a school, the biggest waste of time is when you follow all the rules. They only give us freedom to metastasize the root and if you don't pay your taxes they are coming after you I got love Lauryn Hill, fuck a industry that fuel the corporation ails Everywhere I look a human farm is now for sell and for the right price you can buy yourself a jail This ain't your typical rap song This ain't your typical rap song, pawn to glorify by harlequin bear claws manipulate the masses to sequester to cat's paws pummel to the Queen Gaia, remedy lacks cause another victim to false stars, fronting like a Goodwill charity pimp squad. branding all these tags they exploit to become God chest beating rage like a primate in shit guard. typical rap song, reality enslaved within a living room caucus neighborhood chains all look the same irregardless regurgitated feed stupefying their markets, walking dead is upon us bailing out a system that destroys our existence monopolize accounts with derivative hit-lists Dowing on Nasdaq S&P mission, evict our tradition lost in deception of our past prejudices our recollection is a vengeance of brilliance time swallows truth and the media twists it and they call me a cynic typical resistance of conspiracy theorist but what has really changed as a result of their dominion, the infinite is in-explicit democrips rebloodicans banging round the clock, on your block, to your kids democrips rebloodicans banging round the clock, on your block, to your kids

The system wasn't supposed to be set up this way altered definitions of reality The richest need a war to support their dynasty the market profit margin means invading sovereignty Replace the people's leaders with a rigged democracy Use the CIA to infiltrate opposing western beef while they're cooking up our taxes, we're just shopping for relief levy artificial debt for mortgage backed securities corporations are not people they are psychopathic thieves turning prisons into billions forming modern slavery, back to Ronald Wilson Reagan funded trained Mujahideen to fight the Russian forces in Afghanistan you see Osama Bin Laden financed to the throne Al Qaeda, Taliban, the Brotherhood from the grove And Every president shows the same puppet logic it go profiteering freedom means a military option drone striking on the target, there ain't a target they're just bombing massive attack upon the mass appeal aftermath in the tragedy of a weapons guild artifacts in faculties of the Vanderbilt s Rockefeller s, Carnegie s, now every town a Walton will they're building an empire of willing slaves using our reptilian basic brains time's wasting away what's your remedy leave a legacy or lose another memory equity in entropy consequence of settling knowledge is the weaponry but most will boast that apathy, tacit passive gadgetry, martyr every casualty, freed fearless as a teardrop bleeds I know what is right and what is wrong I'm sure as death these laws are flaws new cigarettes in forms of jobs So Robin Hood your vigilante cause infiltrate the reigns of great, stack your weight and get your start blissful ignorance snickered capital fees sickened incidents calculated with greed figure differences polarizing our grief new conditions is money to keep the peace But all money's created out of a debt and the public and private sector are loaning to keep ahead. Our jobs and purchases strengthening the elite and the interest with the inflation enslaves societies. Pardon the logic, science and facts, we got dinosaurs wearing saddles while golfing on stolen land and now you're asking if I hate our Uncle Sam truth be damned to break the scam to shoot the hand of the oppressor when the business of their business makes a hit-list of our efforts accomplice to the conglomerate till they bend their backs to serve us give a fuck about a CEO in social justice programs majority of charities exist as tax deductions billions upon billions and they send it overseas to evade the type of taxes that is forced on you and me and they hire new attorneys to keep drafting legal jargon and present their new equation to the lobbyists they market stuff their new semantics into convoluted bills and let's not forget the pork barrel spending for the thrill what a deal, it's a steal like how they colonize to kill the true Holocaust began, when the Pilgrims came to build and this is not the end, everywhere I bring this message new beginnings taking stead for the retribution, revolution action up ahead, i'm already in the kitchen kneading through this doughy bread. I know what is right and what is wrong I'm sure as death these laws are flaws new cigarettes in forms of jobs So Robin Hood your vigilante cause infiltrate the reigns of great, stack your weight and get your start moment of silence as the willing are instilled moment of silence as my teardrops pay the bill
