Beautiful Eulogy - Don't Listen To Me lyrics

I'm not delusional This most likely is your first experience with me Greetings, my name is Propaganda I wrote my first rap in '93, simply put Fire baptized battle rapper Who's heavily influenced by folk music and found creative freedom in poetry Combo is strange, I know But let this one bake your noodle I'm the son of a Black Panther With a Mexican spouse and Caucasian best friends And my writing tone, now Is not one that offers you a neat little bow To tie all your little problems up with I learned enough to know that I don't know that much I know God became a man to save us And we still can't explain pyramids I know ancient Mayans and Egyptian astronomers had a far greater understanding of outer-space than we do I know academia is so drunk on arrogance and racism That they'd rather credit these accomplishments To aliens than to admit that we are not the smartest civilization to ever live I know I really love my wife, my daughter, and mangos And for some reason folks find it illogical To think that a perfectly designed universe screams of a designer I know sarcasm is really the only time people tell the truth I know chilaquiles and In-and-Out will be served in Heaven I know it's a much better decision to shut yo' mouth When you don't know what you talkin' 'bout Than to validate what everybody already thinks of you I know color theory very well I have a degree in illustration and intercultural studies And a teaching credential, yet I rap for a living Let that sink in Apparently I don't know that much I just know the gospel and good hip-hop I'm a pretty simple dude All I got is my all and I promise to give you that You know lower standards will lower the culture The Roman empire was destroyed because of lower standards and moral decay You know they fed each other to lions for entertainment Humans, when left to their own devices, seem to be hopelessly selfish And bent on their own destruction It seems that unless a power greater than us captures our hearts Nothing will change that trajectory Wealth, knowledge, success seems to only feed the beast But don't listen to me We just met What do I know?
