    All I wanted was an education!
    So please, try to
    understand my frustration.

    The recruiter man didn’t tell me that
    I might have to die so you
    could get your thrill.
    Naw, all he said was that
    I would qualify for the
    GI Bill.

    Man, this **** is a trip.
    You want me to murder my own people
    like I’m some type of Crip;
    or a Blood, spilling the blood of
    my brothers and sisters who are struggling
    to survive – like me – ALONE
    If I do make it back home
    I won’t even get a loan
    cause you got give a loan to United Air
    Yeah, you say “united WE stand”
    I say, this **** ain’t fair.

    But I just wanted an education!
    Not to participate in world desecration.

    You think I don’t want to protect
    my country?
    I would if I had a reason of validity.
    America is my home yet I’m treated
    like a foreigner.
    If I die over there, will somebody call
    the Coroner and
    Bury my body away
    so you can keep playing
    the games you play.
    Hell yeah, I got something to say.
    How dare you order me to participate!
    Do the Palestinians have their own state?

    A-T-T-E-N-T-I-O-N
    This game is foul son
    and if I complain you’ll have me
    locked up for treason.
    Live from Baghdad
    like son, like dad
    with your sneaky grin
    look at all the **** we’re in.

    See all I wanted was an education!
    The babies in IRAQ don’t have enough food,
    yet you still sanction.

    Hut one, hut two, hut World War III.
    Are you trying to make a
    fool out of us all, or just me?
    Well I detest the cloth from which
    this evil was made.
    To accuse Saddam of having biological weapons
    but yours injected Africa with AIDS.
    These fatigues I wear make me even more a slave.

    A perfectly orchestrated master plan,
    Have the Black and Brown go in and
    kill some “******” in the sand.
    When that’s over you take their land-
    then you’ll try to obliterate us;
    ashes to ashes, dust to dust;
    all under the guise of In God We Trust.

    Sure you’ll let a few of us sing;
    while you clone your new army and
    continue controlling…

    Controlling the minds
    Controlling the dollars
    Controlling the lives
    Controlling the future
    Controlling the skies
    Controlling the history
    Controlling the lies

    How can I control my despise?

    Now all I wanted, was an education!
    But this, this is a castration;
    a mutilation.
    Tell me, do you get off on the sensation
    of your sick and disturbed masturbation?
    This country is jacked!

    I need to get the **** out the military;
    so I can be ALL I CAN BE.
