The American way
How real is this
Wishes deemed Mission Impossible
Mad at the President cause he wasn't confessing
But why'd it take 30 million dollars to teach him a lesson?
Our actions leave many questions and suggestions
Now don't get me wrong
I'm glad Kosovo doesn't have to live in fear
But when are we gonna deal with the black people here?
Give our old enemy Russia loot to get back on their feet
While kids walk our streets without food to eat
In the land of the free
Home of the brave
Land of the hate
Birthplace of the slave
Protecting lands far away from their present memory
Now Red blood, White lights and Blue scars is all they see
Is this the red, white and blue that represents our country?
Cause this melting pot is giving off a foul aroma to me…..
How many lives must it be?
As many graves have been dug
For people who weren't freedom fighting when someone pulled their plug

Eye of the golden bull
Where will you be when your plug is pulled?
Fine men and women being sent to fight wars overseas
But the biggest war is on drugs off in the black communities
I plead immunity over the perils of sin
Unity! The herald for black skin
$180 million dollars spent on research for AIDS
By the time it goes public 180 million more graves
Slave to the cause providing poetic knowledge to the poor
Opening up mental doors..American Apple Pie?…rotten to the core
I spit out these seeds because Uncle Sam ain't apart of my family tree
I'm free, and I'd rather be buried alive than for America to make a puppet of me
$80 billion blown on some military jet
Yet we can't provide shelter for the homeless?
Trillions of dollars being wasted on Lotto
A lotto things go on in the ghetto that you don't know
Truth is the water for your roots…now sit back and watch them grow
Stay out of the sun-light…
