    I am not evil.
    I'm an American man.
    I believe in your ideals.
    Fix them if you can.

    Most of them are full of [email protected]( as the Irish would say).
    I'm not asking you to kiss my arse ( as the Irish would say ).
    But your laws, and the way you do things.
    They are not working today.

    They stifle my progress and cause me strife.
    They linger for ever, a choke on life.

    You do things on purpose directed at me.
    It’s a race depression in the plan you weave.

    Cut the crap, Mr. Man aren't you tired of this?
    The same old cheat you practice on me.

    Don't you call me boy, another nasty trick?
    To elevate your libido, get a woody for you trick.

    Try a new deal, just be nice.
    You play the Christian life.
    Haven't that game gone on long enough.
    You know the lord is tired of your stuff.

    Let me put this thought on your intellectual mind.
    How you feel.
    The ( muslims ) Iraqi's have you sacred this time.
    See they will die for a cuase they believe is right.
    There is honor in death, but its a suicide life.

    Think about the way you made my ancestors feel.
    The same.
    You know now.
    How the nightmare is real.

    On guard, under attack.
    Doing what ever you like.
    Striking fear in the land,
    cloven horses at night.

    The similarity like in the Vietnam War.
    The enemy all look a like.
    Your confused now and scared.

    You write about history, but you learn nothing there.
    Don't ask me to study it.
    Its done nothing for you.
    Showed you how to practice some of the deceit you do.

    Can't trust this one, all suspect that one in fact.
    I know how you feel.
    It’s a race attack.
    I feel the same about you.
    Don't know which ones to trust.

    Turn my back you place a knife in my ribs and stuff.
    So change the way you deal with me.
    The world will change how they act towards you.

    Because once you get over your take over ways,
    causing war and turmoil in places you graze.
    Bring democracy, some real freedoms, put some truth in this place.

    You’re a thief in the night.
    Can't let you in.
    Looking all along to cause trouble
    always fighting and you bring sin.

    It's so bad you can't stand yourself.
    Radical religious right blaming left.

    Said the Africans practice some strange evil ways.
    What about witchcraft and Wica and night time rituals you crave.

    I'm not evil, but you are.
    Try another way to get along in life.
    Work from individual actions.
    Not the group lumping negative stero-types.

    Yes, the powers that be try to make it seem like we are devils, when they are the ones holding the pitchfork and plotting to kill us off, slowly. This was an intense look at how we are so sadly treated, and a tight flow Hodee.
