[Chorus: x2]
I want to talk to the mayor, the governor, the motherfucking president
I want to talk to the FBI, and the CIA, and the motherfucking congressman

[Nas]
Step up to the White House let me in
what's my reason for being I'm ya next to kin
And we built this motherfucker 
You want to kill me because my hunger?
Mr. America young black niggas want ya
I want to talk to the man understand  Understand this motherfucking G-pack in my hand
Look what happened to San Fran young girl hit by policeman  Twelve shots up in her dome, damn
 Niggas thought we slept but the architect sent
The Pentagon's from Egypt, government secret
The 99 to 2-G computer shutdown, what now
 Extension on Earth, human cut-down
 Niggas play with Playstations, they build a spacestations 
On Mars plotting civilizations
 Dissing us discriminating different racists 
Tax payers pay for more jail for black Latin faces 

[Chorus]

[Nas]
I'm just a black man why y'all made it so hard damn
 Niggaz gotta go create their own job
Mr. Mayor imagine if this was your backyard 
Mr. Governor imagine if it was your kids that starved 
 Imagine your kids gotta sling crack to survive  Swing a mack to be live  cart ack to get high
It's the ghetto life yea I celebrate it I live it
And all I got is what you left me with I'ma get it
Now y'all combinin all the countries we goin do the same
 Combine all the cliques to make one gang
It ain't all about a black and white thing
it's to make the change, citizens of a higher plane

[Chorus]

[Nas]
What y'all waiting for the world to blow up
 Before you hear this rewind this 4 minutes before we timeless 
Let y'all niggas bang my shit before ? is
The Nastradamus tell us what time it is
They try to buy us with doe
Fake black leaders of puppets always talking bout the city budget 
The news got it all confused lyin to the public 
They eyes watching stay wise move above it
 Water floods predicted hurricanes twisters 
Its all signs of the Armageddon three sixes  People reverse the system politics verse religion
Holy war muslim verse christians  Niggaz in high places they don't have the balls for this
 People in power sit back and watch them slaughter us
Mr. President I assume it was negligence 
The streets upside down, I'm here to represent this

[Chorus: x2]

[Nas]
Can I talk to you Mr. President  Niggas trying to get with the computers 
We ain't John Henry  Banging down machines and shit
Part of establishment 
That's what we are stepping up for
This shit is real

 Total Package in this nigga  LES in this nigga 
Ill Will nigga 
Mr. President want to keep us from establishment 
 Niggas are American baby
 American Made
