    Not fearing the truth seeing with eyes close
    Because I don't want to be mislead
    Into a believeth I know that’s not right
    I see the lie
    Mix into terms that can only be interpret
    By a lawyer
    Or A Webster dictionary

    Taxes cut
    Are you given back?
    Education cut
    Are you taking back?
    ensuring the benefits
    Of a certain class
    Want to use the FICA
    To play the stock market

    Painted smiles
    Half truth
    Full lies

    Laughing crazy

    You have no ideal of my people strength
    The depth of how we question and do think
    Because you have no interest in US
    You think we travel on a short bus
    Yet there are some of US who do care
    More then you can count or bear
    That education our children on a higher level
    And not use the tools giving to US by the devil
    We place our trust in our faith
    Bank our funds away from your face

    You lost counts years ago
    So you really don’t know
    See
    That's what happens when you lose interest
    See
    That’s what happens when you have no interest
    For US to investment into ourselves
    Is something you thought wouldn't never sell
    Yeah it’s like that the wheels are turning
    Just sitting back, watching Rome burning

    Maaan....

    Blue...I'm not sure I've ever felt
    a current that forceful beneath
    your flow...
    I was definitely caught in the undertow
    of your emotion, frustration and insight...

    keep it flow sister...
    U know this was an awesome write.
