Does history guide you or do you set out to change it?

Breached, not broken
Breached, not broken

Do you set out to change me?
Thank you for that you giant human rat
Fuck your skinned-alive designer wear
Fashion shades and salon hair
Heels to help where nature failed
Artificial teeth and nails

The wasp's nest expands

So, clap your hands
It's her, the one black woman who's success you don't credit to Affirmative Action
The way of the future is corporate sponsors raising your kids
Maternal love is nothing compared to what seven dollars gives
Put in, suck out plastic body parts
It's the ever-growing industry of cosmetic arts
Bombarded with idealized shots, dysmorphic, self-destructive plots

Physical flaws are a mental blank, a mental blank
Physical flaws are a mental blank, a mental blank

So pay your surgeons, it's your parents who you should thank
These eyes are blind to several hundred left behind (lest we forget again)
But the border is breached but not broken
Who tries to find the several hundred left behind
When the border is breached but not broken?

Co-existing in a twisted society
Where youth is a crime and wasteful sweat-shop expenditures is how luxury is defined.
Now the KKK has found a new masquerade
Fuck your self-claimed supremacy 
You hide your face and your shame

Identify right and wrong when all fact is merely opinion
You cannot know the sweetness of victory without first dwelling in the agony of defeat

These eyes are blind to several hundred left behind (lest we forget again)
But the border is breached but not broken
Who tries (who tries) to find the several hundred left behind
But the border is breached, the border is breached, the border

(These eyes are blind) to several hundred left behind
We forgot again
