    Before I'm banned blocked
    spammed or just have my mouth crammed
    with restrictions of a stripped first amendment
    injected with truthless syrum
    or some mysterious infections
    that prevent me from having erections of
    ver ba bu la ry commentary
    on governmental mental conditioning
    and have me listening to Garth Brooks
    and Perry Como
    and swear it's hip hop

    Let me Stop
    and freeze frame references of the
    game we call "ConArtists - the mindbenders"

    We been shipped across the Atlantic
    amidst chaos and panic
    the original brown package
    before UPS
    but cost less
    see we weren't even considered
    human so we didn't have to
    pay first class just a stamp
    on the backs of our *****
    was how they shipped our
    divine hued man masses
    we were sold to the highest bidder
    treated as if we were one of a litter
    cause even though they didn't want to
    admit it /we were cool cats /

    we been sprayed with hoses
    chased by dogs/penned in like hogs/
    and still some act as if they have truly
    been granted American status
    that's the ConArtists objective
    to make our memory selective
    even though this history is defective
    check it....

    while singing anthems
    and doin' all that patriotic chantin'
    does anyone take into account that we
    were once considered 3/5ths of a man
    and woman were considered less
    even though our queens were constantly
    raped by the beast or as they say
    the real "mutha****as"
    to say the least
    while singin' anthems and slinging
    flags for the druglord we call Uncle Sam
    is it realized that we have been placed
    on reservations? we call them ghettos\
    with defined outlines and within the confines
    of another big brother bag of tricks
    we have become reflections of addictions
    to Jerry Springer rikki lake shows
    not challenging our minds/but
    entering stages of mental regression unspoken
    confessions that are minds are not working
    but sucking on dysfunctional gumdrops
    while doing the busstop to Vidal Sasson
    commercials

    everyday is a rehearsal
    for the next 'til we demand respect
    to the death from all from self

    before i'm banned pushed into the blackhole
    of a broken universe a dead birth canal
    a lobotimized lobe of a mannequin
    with no thought but predressed into
    propaganda formed opinion

    Let me ask why
    we wave so fervently for the country
    and not for our unity? For a country
    known to maim us
    scapegoat us
    blame us
    degrade us
    enslave us
    commit us to stereo types
    of stereo listening,tap dancin, ball
    carryin', sexual predators?

    For a country known to disease us
    purposely from Syphillis to AIDS
    don't think that **** ain't manmade
    from providing guns to drugs
    laying the blueprint on how to be a
    third class thug/knowing they're the real criminals
    and letting us teach each other
    that "keeping it real" is projecting
    bullets from the steel at each others dome
    as mothers and fathers cry in the shadows of thier
    homes/

    we've been mentally bent brainwashed
    whitewashed at all cost
    plus shipping

    so before I am banned blocked spammed
    therapy shocked until i hit the stage
    of vegetate let me say

    they better pull the plug on this tongue quick
    cause the truth does stick/even if it does make
    folks sick.
