You have to speak the truth
You have to speak your mind

Everytime I speak my mind I'm lyrically critical
The pinnacle of being revolutionarily pivotal
Beyond everything ever studied that's metaphysical
Man, fuck a minority I'm not politically minimal
But obviously terminologies that're statistical
Are manufactured to be unequivocally subliminal
Transmitted by monopolized media visuals
So I riddle hypocritically pitiful criminals
Habitually utilizing typical rituals
With false pretense in attempts to be spiritual
To individuals who believe in biblical miracles
Instead of themselves cause they're not thinking original
And the color of their skin makes them feel invisible
Like microscopic miscarriages lynched with the umbilical
Only a fuckin' imbecile would think they're uncorrectable
Cause you're susceptible to becoming more than a spectacle
Remember that you're flesh and blood and your body's dissectable
I'll beat you until you're a vegetable
And wake up in a hospital covered in poisonous chemicals
In a fetal position with your face sewn to the intestinals
Thinkin that you'd been kidnapped by extraterrestrials
You got heart? I'm the blood that pumps in your ventricles
Technique, I'm like your soul nigga, indispensable
With no respect for those who cower at the hour of revolution
Because the goverment owes my people restitution
Instead of sedatives like cocaine and prostitution
Conclusion is that you'll have to violently silence me
Cause I raid the airwaves at cutthroat piracy
In school my teachers blinded me
But now I can see
Now I'm mentally and revolutionarily free
Broadening horizons about what my people could be
If we wasn't set up to get shot, locked or OD
You see families bleed because of corporate greed
And monopolizing weed is virtually impossible
So it won't be legalized and that's another obstacle
But I'm still rollin up pocketfuls of tropical
The government's involved directly so it's unstoppable
Like a nuclear rocket full of biochemical toxins that invade the ecological
Improbable that the average intellect could understand
So I encrypted this into hip hop that's in high demand
And spread it through the ghetto of every city like contraband
Stomp a man of any complexion with a devilish nature
Cause I'm trying to save the earth, but you're just getting in line to rape her

    General CommentAnother favorite of mine I just had to write out on SM. The last line is so poignant it hurts.
    I love how long he can keep the -al rhyme at the beginning without sounding repetitive.

    General Commentthe music in the background is a part of the 2nd movement from J.S.Bach's 5th Brandenburg Concerto, which is a wonderful piece of music.
    i would never have imagined that a rap verse could be set to it.
    major props to Tech...and general props for paying homage to Bach by using the sample.
