    Let's find us a terrorist in the form of 400 years oppression
    Who blames others for the economic regression and continental depression
    Terrorists be in session on Capitol Hill
    Getting a great big thrill off bringing the pain to you
    At the cost of drops of your children's innocent blood
    Flooding airwaves and brainwaves with American propaganda
    Pandered to politically powerless peoples
    Enslaved by capitalistic culprits cunning countless minds on corporate plantations
    The math they don't want you to figure out
    Equates to this
    He who controls human interests
    Controls world interest
    In stocks and bonds
    Which generates capital
    For the Capitol
    And he who has these
    Has the power to control your world
    To reshape your reality and your mind
    So yes let's finds us a terrorist
    Whose name ain't bin Laden
    Cuz it's your government that's been plotting
    Been bombing
    Been stealing
    Been killing
    Been lying
    Been hiding
    Behind the mask of patriotism
    Where politrick-tians masquerade for the mindless media
    Who masters you
    Yes the TV is your all knowing source of misinformation
    Misconceptions mutilating and murdering the Truth
    You buy in , you sell out
    To the convoluted convictions of Americanism
    Caught up in the bars and stripes of your prison sentence
    To this country that waves a banner stained with your ancestors’ blood
    Blinded by Hollywood stars
    In this cast of political pawns
    Trapped in a game of international chess
    Where the next move is undetermined by your own choice
    You have surrendered your voice to the Puppet Master
    You let him speak for you
    Strategically place you in peril
    This war is not in the name of God, but is a scheme of the Devil
    So yes let's find us a terrorist
    Whose religion is not Islam
    This **** sure ain't no Holy War
    The seeds of Abraham have risen against one another
    Isaac and Ishmael
    Cousins killing cousins
    Blood relations engaging in generational devastation
    Only to have a third party nation
    Step in and keep the ruckus going
    So the money and oil can keep flowing
    Into their pockets
    Launching missiles and rockets
    Targeted not in the pursuit of peace
    But dollars, and more dollars
    Confounding us all from simple men to scholars
    Christians and Muslims are even at odds
    Don't you know you both serve the same God
    Just different names
    You've all been caught up in the game of religion
    Shackled to doctrines that cause division
    The whole world is being twisted and tricked
    Terrorized by the lawmakers, who really are the lawbreakers
    The soul takers
    The profit from the people makers
    Let's find us some real terrorists
    And put them in their graves
    Or remain enslaved to this mockery of democracy
    This whore of mass hypocrisy
    Let's Chant Babylon Down
    Let's start a Revolution Now
    Let's Get our Minds Right
    Let's Stand Up and Fight
    And if we Must Die
    Then Let Us Die Free
    Show and Prove
    That all can have Liberty, Justice, and Equality

    say that then!

    Almost too much truth to this!(if that's possible)
    Makes it hard to see the real threats out there.
    Way to put it down!

    Legacy, I stand and appalaude you.
    As a non-American it is easy for me to see the wrongs the Governement commit, but to finally hear those words flow from an American gives me hope, that one day soon the terrorism will end.
    Great peace.
