lyrics

They say waking up a sleepwalker’s a dangerous thing to do
and i agree, haven’t you seen the news
There’s people bombing buildings and shooting up their schools 
Not the banks or prisons or the mansions on the hills
I guess women’s health care centers are warfare zones
so are gay clubs,black churches,And our homes

Well it seems to me that there’s a level of hate
In a white man’s world for another gender or race
a refusal to see humanity when it’s staring you in the face
And their fear has built up a police state
Now don’t know who is sleeping but i sure know who’s awake
And I wouldn’t trust the media of a corporate controlled state

Cause what people see and hear is what they’ll regurgitate 
It’s true for drunks and it’s true for heads of states
Representative Democracy is a myth in modern day
How could they bring justice to problems they’ve never faced
Or how do you reform a system that was built to enslave
How do you use your master’s tools to break out of your chains

well There’s a street in every city named after M.L.K.
But what’s it matter, shit’s just as racist these days
look at Mr.Trump up on center stage
or the police protecting nazis marching in parades
well it Seems to me that the police only protect the interests of the state
And if they cannot keep us down the army will take their place

Now I dont believe in violence but I believe in self defense 
And I believe that Malcolm X put it best
defense against tyranny is a sign of intelligence
and that the truth has always on the side of the oppressed
and modern slavery is in debt not chains
locked up in a cell working for cents a day

So for every slave that took the name of a president 
and for the stolen teeth in the rotten skulls of dead white men
for the tortured and locked up in this Disneyland
and For the kids bathing in poison up in Flint,Michigan
They’ve been trying to bury us, didn't know that we were seeds
and The bullets that they’ve sown, well that’s what they’re gonna reap
