"Livin' In A New World" as written by Tarik L. Collins, Karl B. Jenkins and Khari Abdul Mateen....
[Chorus: x2]
Turn up the boom-box, put on your high-tops
Come on outside, today's goin' be the day we
Start livin' in the new world

[Black Thought]
Yo, they got high-powered lenses on the cameras outside
It ain't nowhere to run it ain't hardly nowhere to hide
They hear you when you whisperin' so try to keep quiet
You don't even realize that you's a twinkle in the all, seein' eye
From the time you in the bar gettin' high
To havin' conversations on your phone through the wire
You can drive but it's definitely footage of your ride
Livin in this day and time, it's a funny kind of vibe
From the corners of the ceiling feel its eyes in back of me
I couldn't tell you why I think they constantly after me
Maybe it's cause the news put it to me so graphically
How niggas don't obey no laws, not even gravity boy
No benefit of doubt he had to be from
He from the corner where they known to get they casualty on
Another day another scene to perform, spotlight him on Friday
Come and lock him up Saturday morn, c'mon

[Chorus]

    General CommentI really really really love this song!

    The surf hippie vibe, the hip hop- it's all about being free.

    I think this song explains the situation of big bro really well. We're all getting used to cameras being around but the paranoia still gets to you.

    He's angry with the media and all the propaganda and needs to get away from it all, but the chorus is inviting anyone else that wants to come along too.

    General Commenti totally agree. living free from the restraints of everything around us. and crowd participation is a must if we are ever to live in a free world.

    General Comment"another day,another scene to perform- spolight him on friday,
    and lock him up on saturday morn, cmon.."

    i think its also about how the system is set up in a way to get out people to "tap dance" for the media.

    also feel like cause sometimes we cant stand it and we need to block out the world cuz zome times its too much we end up blastin our music just to get us going.

    i think this is also about us comming together under a new understanding. thats all i am gonna say for now.

    General CommentCall me crazy but this song is about the illuminati. I don't neccisarily believe in the illuminati but i definately believe that the few control the many, which people may call those few the illuminati.

    take a look at this lyric,
    "they hear you when you're whispering so try to keep quiet
    you won't even realize that yous a twinkle in the all-seeing eye."
    the all seeing eye is considered by many an illuminati symbol.so this whole song is pretty much talking about someone knowing what your doing and saying through cameras and phones and such, then he throws that lyric at you to let you know whos listening. that your a twinkle in the all seing eye.

    another illuminati thing you will hear about is the new world order. well, look a the title livin in a new world. new world. new world order.

    well thats what i have to say, not that i beleive in all this crap anyways but i dont disbelieve in it. so go crazy with paranoia that someone knows what your doing all the time and is controling you... or dont
