So when they cant stop, wont stop/
who keep the tank topped?/
who reaps the good sleep, keeps the receipts?/
I seem em sucking up the last drops/
drop the H2 stretch H3/
where the party at democrat?/
sittin on a muggy summer bench/ sippin muddy water/
peepin newsweek/ see whats up with sergeant slaughter/
hotter days on the way/ turn your A.C. Slater up/
Burn/ aloe vera green/ apple now and later/
yup/ pass that (sweet)/
Mike Mictlan/ where the mask at?/
hand over what?/
hand over yours run that/
man over bored with the same crap down/
dehumanize communities like Black Hawk Down/
they realize immunities and rape them towns/
so we speak our minds so fluently with raw/ rap sounds/
alright tykes/ a Klondike bars on the line/
we need a blind eye turned/ keep em simple/ refined/
oh the black gold/ Texas tea (hah)/ youre kiddin/
there aint been good oil in Texas for a minute/
thats why we knocked over our own thrones/
then watch it combust/ end up in free speech zones/ that shock and awe was on us/
watch me ex-pat Brazillian/ if 85% of Guantanimo is civilian/
blood pumps vermillion/ beats dump all over a chump populous/
keeping they focus on Paris Hilton (ick)/
Prada dead guilty as any internet thread/ big check/
probably got a lot of bad head/
all night vision/ all night missions/ all right/
Christ risen?/ tight/ nope/ call the prisons/
yikes/ the middle pickin the simple drivel/
the riddles a head ripper/ splitter/
suburbanites will get the kibble/ (listen)/ t
he double speech is legit/
they on some/ stand up for yourself you worthless piece of shit/
bet it all lose it all forget it/
and saying fuck Bush gave that douche a splash/ too much credit/
but smoking on Kush makes cats/ so apathetic/
cant beat em with a bat/ so we join em and spit the ethics/
(or)/ we beat em with a bat (yeah)/
POS steadily wreck it for anybody who raps/ or naps on facts/
fill the in line six to End Hits/
the oval office and the lobby/ prolly listen to Fugazi singin/
this ones ours lets take another/ x2
Then they dance away clean like/ Savion Glover

    General CommentThe line “This one’s ours let’s take another" is from the song "Five Corporations" by Fugazi. From the Album End Hits. Awesome refrences.

    General CommentDefinitely hints at the current problems with our countries policies. From global warming ("hotter days on the way, turn your ac slater up")("alright tykes, a klondike bars on the line" [polar bears becoming endangered]), to our occupation of other countries (with the fugazi line "this one's ours let's take another"), and our obsession with oil ("I see em suckin up the last drops, H2 stretch H3"). awesome song.

    General Commentthere is also a reference to George Orwell's 1984 "The suburbanites will get the kibble/ (listen)/ The double speech is legit/

    Doublespeak is the totalitarian government used to cloud the minds of the citizens so they'd believe what ever the government said.

    To me this song is saying "It wasn't good when Bush was in, and it's not getting any better" I agree.

    General Comment"who keep the tank topped?
    who reaps the good sleep, keeps the receipts?"
    Refers to the government, of course. "Keeping the tank topped" is actually talking about military tanks. The other two pieces are straightforward.

    "I seem em sucking up the last drops
    drop the H2 stretch H3"
    I agree, it's about the oil obsession.

    "hotter days on the way, turn your A.C. Slater up
    (Burn) aloe vera green, apple Now and Later
    yup pass that (sweet)"
    Referencing two major problems in the world today, deforestation and global warming. I think that he's talking about how we're drawn away from what we should care about by the goverment (i.e. candy).

    "we need a blind eye turned; keep em simple, refined"
    To turn a blind eye away means to me that it's dead in our faces but we don't know it's there, and are drawn away from it by other things (the media, etc.) to keep us occupied.


    "there aint been good oil in Texas for a minute
    thats why we knocked over our own thrones
    then watched it combust, end up in free speech zones - that shock and awe was on us"
    I think this is going back to the Alamo. We took Texas from Mexico and added it to the U.S., which is, of course, a "free speech zone".

    "watch me expat Brazillian if 85% of Guantanamo is civilian"
    "Expat" = expatriate: to expel from a country. Guantanamo is a massive, high-security prison.

    "but smoking on Kush makes cats so apathetic
    cant beat em with a bat, so we join em and spit the ethic"
    (or) we beat em with a bat (yeah)"
    Apathy is a state of indifference. This quote refers to the old saying "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em." Because we can't get rid of the druggies, many of us "join 'em" and take up drugs ourselves. It seems like he's against drug use because of the last line of the quote.

    the oval office and the lobby prolly listen to Fugazi singin
    this ones ours, let's take another
    this ones ours, let's take another
    this ones ours, let's take another
    Then they dance away clean like Savion Glover"
    The line from Fugazi has already been explained. This one's about governmental greed, pretty straightforward. Savion Glover is a world-class dancer and choreographer.

    General CommentThe problem with ghalladay's interpretation is that the song is a remix of the same track from a Doomtree album in 2007 and even this version was released weeks after Obama's inauguration, so I see as a much more clear-cut anti-Bush and GOP policy song. The final line "Then they dance away clean like Savion Glover" refers to Bush and company being able dance away off-stage without any repercussions for the damage they did.

    "this one's ours, let's take another" could just as easily reflect their desire for another Republican presidential term.
