    It's a hard pill to swallow
    when
    the laws you follow
    are enforced on land
    your ancestors were
    wrongfully mounted on
    and
    the very principles
    this country's founded on
    can't be counted on
    in times of
    crisis and confusion.
    What an illusion
    they've pulled off on us
    mis-used and lost our trust
    too many times
    but
    ain't too many rhymes
    been written about this.
    so
    I'm pissed
    because for some odd reason,
    we feel it's better
    that less is said
    but for Gods sakes niggas,
    they left us for dead...
    dyin!!
    and there's no denyin'
    those fathers cryin'
    with
    their families sidewalk ridden.
    what was so cleverly hidden
    is now in plain vision
    for all to see.
    We want ya'll to see
    how this country
    does
    it's poor and down trodden.
    This,
    is an instance that
    must not be forgotten.
    It's for keeps!
    Long after the media sweeps
    political name calling
    and lying.
    You see,
    cinematography
    has de-sensitized the eye
    so we don't cry no more
    when
    we see people dying...
    in despair,
    we don't care.
    We just change
    the station.
    We live in a nation
    where
    the poor have nothing
    but time to spend
    so
    we're left waiting
    tailgating flood waters
    outside the SuperDome
    home no more
    shown no more love
    than
    some of them "3rd world" countries
    we take over.
    This is the real rape over!!
    and
    this ain't young, frustrated emotion,
    this is grown man rationale.
    It's hard to admit
    my national
    don't give a fuck about its own
    but
    the evidence is clear enough
    to stack it up.
    Young Kanye
    just made a statement,
    black ice
    is here to back it up!!!

    It's a beautiful world
    we live in
    But
    ugly souls push the buttons
    the gluttons of society
    top priority
    making sure the rich folk
    stay rich folk
    pitch fork type thinking.
    New Orleans' been sinking.
    This is no new issue.
    The ninth ward has been the tissue
    that the city wipes
    its ass with.
    Like in the pass
    with the historical first flood
    way before Bush
    contracted Halenburton
    to restore back
    the order.
    They used dead black bodies
    to hold back the water.
    such disorder
    in a country that
    burns so much money
    I'm tellin' you
    you learn so much Money
    if you'd just
    open up a book
    and look inside.
    That's where they hide
    the evidence
    these fucked up presidents
    and their constituents
    pit you against
    your own kind,
    fuck with your mind.
    Yeah, they got jobs
    and opportunities for the poor.
    It's called prison life
    and warfare.
    Nigga!!
    that's your share
    of the American pie.
    But you gotta
    lie
    steal
    and cheat to get it
    step on someone's feet
    to get it and...
    our toes have been swollen
    for so long
    they do us so wrong but,
    we just stand here and take it
    nature's ripped the mask off
    so
    now they can't fake it
    we're here...
    butt naked NIGGA.
    This is your nations poor
    yet
    you still turn around
    and ask us for our kids
    for war?!?!?
    What about
    those battalions from the Bayou
    that don't know
    what their over there
    fighting for.
    What the fuck can you
    possibly say to them?
    When
    they learn their parents died
    casualties of the war
    on poverty
    waiting for help
    outside
    a fucking
    stadium.
