or any item or instrument that can be used as a weapon

UN peacekeeping garrisons have severed all data transmissions

Any violation of martial law will result in immediate arrest and trial for treason
All traitors will be shot
America is now engaged in civil war

It's already started, maybe too late to stop
It's already on, they shooting the cops
They pushing the line, racism is high
The country's divided, you know the f*ck why
The press of the pull, and push of the truth
The public is dumb, delusional youth
Our leaders are evil, lie after lie
The public is armed, and ready to die
(Ready to die)

(Civil war)
What side you on when the shit pops off?
Black or white, wrong or right?
(Civil war)
Rich or poor, urban war
Shit might just jump off tonight
(Civil war)
What side you on when the shit pops off?
Black or white, wrong or right?
(Civil war)
This shit is true
Coming soon to a town near you

They don't care about nothing, just personal gain
These politicians wouldn't mind a war, motherf*ck your pain
Cops are killing people and never do time
In the hood we killing each other like that ain't no crime
I'm feeling the tension, don't tell me you don't
These fools will get us all killed, don't tell me they won't
There's guns on the streets, it's already too late
The net's overloaded with pure racial hate
Depressed, just instigate, they love a fight
Don't give a f*ck about who gets hurt just news that night
They try and twist the problem like it's white and black
But if you come to shoot me, yo I'm shooting back

(Civil war)
What side you on when the shit pops off?
Black or white, wrong or right?
(Civil war)
Rich or poor, urban war
Shit might just jump off tonight
(Civil war)
What side you on when the shit pops off?
Black or white, wrong or right?
(Civil war)
This shit is true
Coming soon to a town near you

(Civil war)
What side you on when the shit pops off?
Black or white, wrong or right?
(Civil war)
Rich or poor, urban war
Shit might just jump off tonight
(Civil war)
What side you on when the shit pops off?
Black or white, wrong or right?
(Civil war)
This shit is true
Coming soon to a town near you
