The lies
The revision
The rhetoric
We're too old for this shit
It aint high school no more, no more bullying
How do you account for all'a shit you can't count
Opportunity cost just continues to mount
Somewhere buried out there in your infinite wisdom
Is the knowledge that you carry of this frivolous system
How could we ever measure the intensity of hate
Amount of lives lost? Amount of spit one person takes
To the face? The amount that the master race
Has convinced them that they're worth all that? Great
And these are our debates
Well if that's the case, my lips is never outta shape
Tho my heart is almost outta faith in the road we take
Don't wanna look back at destruction in our wake, no
We too busy on that other stuff
That "I'ma tear down my brother" stuff
When will we say that enough's enough?
And realize if we together we can muscle up?
I just wanna be normal
Although I ain't got a clue what that means
I don't wanna be mortal
I wanna live in the sky, in the clouds, in the dreams
Because it's after sundown
And round here I don't know if you know what that means
That means I cannot come round
And if I ever dare try, I either die or I leave
We stronger together but we can't get together
Cuz we all chasin' cheddar
We wanna do better but it's hard to do better
When it's been this way forever
The blacks are like this, Latinos like that
And Jews keep us all down, can we all cut the crap
A Palestinian killer ain't inherently violent
He just got little to lose and he's tired of staying silent
Peaceful way'ee might've tried it, voice drowned out
Now it's a shortlist of choices he's thinking about
And then you want to say his race is not legitimate?
Maybe you're right - you made it, did you consider it?
Box people into corners with green lines and red lines
Draw up nonsense borders to meet hasty deadlines
I'm sick of it, same story, different day, ain't no different shit
And our differences ain't based on how our skin just is
Or our blood just is and, well not until we make em be
That's an American, screaming out, Where you takin me?
On their way to the black site sittin' in Homan Square
The that you aint close since we told you it was there
I just wanna be normal
Although I ain't got a clue what that means
I don't wanna be mortal
I wanna live in the sky, in the clouds, in the dreams
Because it's after sundown
And round here I don't know if you know what that means
That means I cannot come round
And if I ever dare try I either die or I leave
Why can't we get the sun to set
Will you take steps
Why you want to forget
Blood tears and sweat
We stronger together but we can't get together
Cuz we all chasin' cheddar
We wanna do better but it's hard to do better
When it's been this way forever
Let the truth set you free
It's up to you to know who's got an agenda
Cuz some of what they say might be true
But what's their motivation
Cuz everybody's got one
Even you
