[Intro] Bang on the drum Bang on the drum Bang Heart! Bang on the drum Bang bang on the drum Heart! [Verse 1] I don't protest I am one And my throat is my handgun I'm a Protextor You an amateur I'm a glowstick and I'm cracked up I been watchin' the sitcom But it isn't funny Like I'm stuck in Philladelphia But it isn't sunny I swear they playin' with different money They slick as a fox That's why I been Scully Don't got a single dollar in my pocket Don't belong to someone else already so If I'm late on my rent again... I don't need no one's help! I'm steady on it Just lemme be an American male Lemme be in debt Insecure And upset as all hell (Sick!) Germs flyin' You can see me spit Creatin' culture out of nothing Like a petrie dish That's we how do it 'round here: We don't see these fences We don't see this ceilings We don't need these lessons This one's for the underfunded Who been misjudged for where they from When they was young Or the d** they done did Or who they love Or who they run with Cuz you and us makes 1, ya dumb sh** We got a pool of love And it's cool to jump in Stay you in the hive mind No need to be afraid of the high dive So Take me with a grain of salt Take me with a gram of weed Take me with a Tylenol Take me a dramamine Just don't take it too hard when I take the lead We don't forget who we are And this is I is we High as we Might just be We ain't blind Eyes can see I can be who I am but see Now I can leave I can be free and be the whole world in a minute I see you Khaleesi It's easy I feel it [Verse 2] WE filter out these average Joes WE regularly be right at your throat WE will accept cash for your hope and WE earned the right to pa** this so I'ma pa** it to the right Get ‘em frantic Get ‘em panicked With the type of note we pa** low We pa** ‘em hope like Doncha know? I'm so alive You 'bout to go They promise magic if you put some cash in this basket and pa** it on I call that pa**in' the buck I say that I'm ha**led enough Though I thrown down to those who practice compa**ion and love Cuz I know That can be tough [Verse 3] It's only wine til you drink it Then it's what's inside You can pop a pill to see God motherf**er Try You can pray With a bu*ton You can f** With a touchscreen What the f** did I just jerk off to?! What the f** did I just see?! I think I saw a black man die... I think I saw this in a movie – wait I think I saw this on a TV show – no I think I saw it in Newsweek I think I heard the storm roof leak I think I heard of a shooting About 2 weeks ago Is it the same one? The news so deja vu The news so deja vu I stay numb Cuz it's a crime to be different But the times they are shiftin' And my mind keeps driftin' I get so high when it's windy… So tell me whatever you're inta We can do it til you can't get no better I'm meant to uncensor your agenda Til' the pendulum swing and the rope go CRACK [Outro] I don't protest I am one And my throat is My handgun The law is against my heart So my heart is against the law We get stronger They get older Days get longer Night gets colder SHIFT!
