    "Caged"

    It's been a long time comin'
    But I'm still huntin' and runnin'
    Still pushin' and shovin'
    Still dodgin' and duckin'
    Still waitin' cause I know my
    Change is comin'
    Quickly--even though it seems to tarry
    And even though my circumstances seem to vary
    I feel very--
    Caged up inside by the politics
    Makes me so sick, bout to turn into a lunatic
    They think they can cage me for long
    I'm not havin' it
    Getting tired of the spooned fed lies
    The pain-sheered lullabyes
    That administration tries to disguise
    As news--only to confuse the views
    Of the masses
    Forgetting the facts, its their tactic
    Killing the truth
    And here is our proof
    They keep us down and cooped
    In the projects and the ghettos
    On foodstamps and minimum wage
    Yet they expect us to maintain
    Yet we need to obtain
    By any means neccessary
    Make this whole nation very scary
    Make each day look like Black February
    Yet there is a reason why
    More brothas are in jail than in college
    In the university of prison is where we get
    Our knowledge
    A BS in slingin bricks
    With a masters in raping chicks
    Got my PhD in crack cocaine
    And my minors in putting a bullet
    In brains
    And they wonder why we're so insane
    cause this what ya get
    For keeping us caged
