It's safe to say
There are darker things in the streets these days
Than kids with guns and moms on drugs
Things that we don't let on

If you're free
Then take to the city streets
With your god-given speech
Screaming "fuck the police"

You can see the state
Getting armed for the new class war
Perpetuate divide
And say it's the law
There are blacker things
Living deep within all our hearts
There are darker things in our hearts
Than we let on

And it's safe to say
There are darker things in the street these days
Than dirty skies and getting high
Things that control our lives

And the priests
Were all demoted and released
Check the property value
The neighbors didn't even mind

You can see the state
Getting armed for the new class war
Perpetuate divide
And say it's the law
There are blacker things
Living deep within all our hearts
There are darker things in our hearts
Than we let on

Doesn't anyone want to start again?
Create a new aesthetic for the new American
Not state traitors taking, day trading and date raping
To their hearts content as the work day ends

I laid down so tired
I woke up awakening

    General CommentYou can see the state getting armed for the new class war

    ...And he references several weapons the state uses in this class war; gun control, religion, economics and the war on drugs (among others). This is a warning us the the government's intentions when they are trying to ratchet up the fear factor of one thing or the other. They have far darker intentions
