Strange Fruition

Casey Benjamin, Lupe FiascoBuy this song

Now I can’t pledge allegiance to your flag Cause I can’t find no reconciliation with your past
When there was nothing equal for my people in your math
You forced us in the ghetto and then you took our dads
The belly of the beast, these streets are demons’ abs
I’m telling you that setup in them sit-ups is so sad
The system is a slab Corruption is the swinger sittin’ high ridin’ dirty, drag racin’ into danger And it’s so clean, pine trees smellin’ good
With work off in the trunk and niggas in the hood
So I can’t shed blood on any battlefield of yours I pray the ugly truth comes and shatters your decor And as it all falls down and tatters on the floor I shed tears, I don’t know what really matters anymore Cause I don’t know what really matters anymore 
Many things, strangest things you ever seen
Oh, look at how they swing, would you look at how they swing? Embedded they go, no eyelids gone low
Or gone by sundown, they're dodging 5-0

Now as I wander through the city goin’ mad
I see the fruits of planting evidence instead of grass A swindled generation with no patience, full of swag
Man, they so impatient with the stations that they have
As long as they look good when they be doin’ bad
Then the separation from the truth is gettin’ vast, fast
Be a slave at first or free at last
Double-edged choices make a nigga wanna pass
Double-headed voices from the eagle on the staff The pyramid where eyes will split the spirited in half Divided over money Delighted by the dummyin’ down of the importance of crowns we’ll never have
That’s why my sounds and sermons are so full of wrath Baptize your mind, let your brain take a bath
Swim inside the river get delivered from the craft Of the witches in this business that be livin’ off your sad
Hatin’ on your happiness you hit ‘em off with laughs Smile ‘til they surrender, then you kill ‘em off with glad Hello evil, I’m back

Many things, strangest things you ever seen
Oh, look at how they swing, would you look at how they swing? Embedded they go, no eyelids gone low
Or gone by sundown, they're dodging 5-0
