Escape the Beast

by Troytribe

To the east my brother
To the east my sister
To the east my people 
Escape the beast
The white hard disease
The brutality of the police
The heat of a piece
The name brand fleece
The ice we think thatís sleek
The mind not at peace
The ignorance mouthpiece
The squawking of tainted beaks
The ghetto mentality increase
The self love decrease
The swollen unhealthy physiques
The greasy fat fried feast
The paddling up murky creeks
The unwilling laziness to seek
The urge for late night creeps
The family gatherings thatís weeps
The lost children under the stairs we sweep
The sexual tag of freaks
The self-blame we preach
The lost ones we canít reach
The hearts that sour and leaks
The belief that we arenít unique
The criminal mystique
The insight thatís always bleak
Escape the beast my brother
Escape the beast my sister
Escape the beast my people
And rise like the flames
From the east
