lyrics

No rest in the midwest, no peace in the middle east
An empire of bases all around the globe, & it seems like the bombs never finna cease
More kids dead, more money for bullets than books,
Then treat you like shit because you couldn't read
Worst of all is that they convinced you, you shouldn't dream
Before you take that from me you'll have to throw me in a guillotine

That's half the reason people let the bullets free
& I don't blame 'em, but start aiming at the 1% it's killing me
[We] need unite and fight against the real disease,
Buzzkill, a real MC, revolutionary love and respect goes out to Fred Hampton,
The dead Panther, who's rad answers for society's problems,
Earned him a red matress

// Chorus //
Destroy what destroy what destroy what destroys you

Take a look around yourself, ask yourself what have we become?
When every magazine and music video got a skinny girl dancing in bikinis, whaaa?
What happened to the discourse? Pitchfork - well I guess maybe we just dumb
But I refuse to believe that everybody buys the bullshit just 'cuz it seems more fun

We gonna drop knowledge, know that we're gonna do it in a way that will teach more young
While the radio is gonna dumb ya down to increase their funds, and grease more palms
We gotta stop all this, yeah, from the music biz the the seats of the gov
He who has the gold, makes the rules, no debate there, how do you say? yeah the system is fucked

// Chorus //

Destroy what destroys you, unleash the beast that lives deep inside
They poison the soil, the water, the air everything we need to survive
Your choice is turmoil, for the kids or let everything rot,
Destroy what destroy what destroys

// Chorus
