Verse 1: The Human Animal

I’m from where homeless guys cooking dogs on trash cans
And asphalt stretches suffocating the land
Broken families, no sense of loyalty or sanity
The devil’s hands in the barcode of humanity
I wonder why y’all mold yourselves into slaves
For these top shelf barons of black gold, the waves
Burn black in the summer, burn black in the hummer
Burn black like an atmosphere that cracked with thunder
Shit we dumb it down, educated with withdrawal
From Walmart to Hallmark American strip malls
A lost chapter, we rip rappers into halves
Till the fat lady sings and the helicopter laughs
We wanted sovereignty, they gave us diabetes
We wanted land rights, they gave us dead trees
A dead history, scalped skin, diseases
A dead God but thank God for Jesus
So here’s the body of your Christ, bitch, take this
From the hands of the priest serial rapist
Native leaders crying blood over broken treaties
The arrogance of even thinking freedom coming easy
You see the people with the green need pigs
To ensure all illiterate animals in a crib
Till their minds go gonzo, no fozzy bear
Indoctrinating the child, psychological warfare
And we gon’ die there, buried under basements
Of high rises of those who paying rent surviving
Alive with the clarity of diamond eyes
Seeing the face of satan every time the President smiles
Fucking wit X-File fetishes, alien fucking immigrants
Pedofiles sucking on kid dick like ministers
Silly hair styles kicking lines of rap
We accelerating your heart until your rib cage crack
