Standing against the odds to take back what they took
Some fight with stones, some fight with guns
But instead I choose to fight with my pen and my notebook
Nothing for the ninth ward, just more of the same
Wealthy wolves smell the blood of opportunity
Send in the sheep to develop a New Orleans
A new twist for an old division game

New wars, new kings
The pigs came here to take everything
No wars, no kings
We gotta stop the blood-letting

New wars, new kings
The pigs came here to take everything
No wars, no kings
We gotta stop the blood-letting

What about the overcrowded projects where desperation calls?
What about the lack of education and the lack of love?
But most of all:
What about the innocent in rooms with bars and three walls?
Can you tell me, where is the justice in Philly for MOVE and Mr. Jamal?

New wars, new kings
The pigs came here to take everything
No wars, no kings
We gotta stop the blood-letting

New wars, new kings
The pigs came here to take everything
No wars, no kings
We gotta stop the blood-letting

I've read about people found without the copper tokens around their necks
Whose hands you cut off and left bleeding to death
I've read about Hampton's murder by the state while he slept
Our lives are all on trial and you still remain the judge
While the injustice machine stays greased up with innocent blood

No war
No war
No war
No war...

    Song MeaningCan some american please clearify some content of this song?

    for instance:

    "Nothing for the ninth ward, just more of the same."
    "Send in the sheep to develop a New Orleans.
    A new twist for an old division game"
    "overcrowded projects where desperation calls?"
    "innocent in rooms with bars and three walls?"
    "While the Injustive machine satys greased up with innocent blood."

    And who are the "new kings" actually?
