    America's paranoia
    Don't eat the food
    Don't drink the water
    And don't let that Mad Cow disease
    Cross the border

    Don't have sex
    But how can your reproductive system
    Turn killer
    Nature don't work like that
    Sex was meant to be enjoyed not
    Subject to russian roulette

    Somebody slipped a mickey
    Into the ancient city
    Now it makes life risky
    When you try to get BUSY

    They keep you paranoid and scared
    Don't stay in the sun don't breathe the air
    So you're either ultra-conservative
    Or like me you just don't care

    The birth of man was on the African continent
    But what I don't get
    Is the raunchiness
    EBOLA and AIDS from my ancestry, yes?
    Yeah, okay
    Yo it's been one million years and now you detect
    You suspect
    Yeah I bet
    "YOU" invaded a land with "YOUR" plague and disease
    and "YOUR" human neglect
    and you want to know why I'm upset?
    "You" ran us out of Afronet

    "You" will never hurt us
    The truth will surface
    So I make you nervous
    Cause I provide a service

    I come from the slaves, it's in my DNA
    Close is the day
    When we will have our way
    And keep "YOU" at bay

    Go to the supermarket and
    you think the food is for your health
    When it's about profit and how much it SELLS
    Generic one-dimensional
    Saturated with toxic chemicals
    This makes the death slow and undetected
    How else can they make profit if this was mentioned
    And all the truth I'm unfolding
    Can cause cancer in my colon
    So the So'ja keeps praying and hoping
    That you get the message
    Now that the "GATES OF TRUTH" are open

    When you're from the streets like me
    Paranoia don't effect ya
    Cause we already neglected
    So to my people living comfortable
    I'm just passing the message

    Peace From Under The Streets
    In The Basement

    Big up!

    Word up So'ja! To be blessed with eyes to see is half the battle. Your eyes have been blessed. As a matter of fact! It was the Conquistadors of Europe who sexed the South American LLamas and introduced Syphilis & Gonorrhea to the human race. These diseases exist in this animal without harming them. CURSED is their memory! CURSED be their way!

    Stay live ma brother!

    JAH Lives.
