Immortal Technique - The 3rd World lyrics

I'm from where the gold and diamonds are ripped from the earth Right next to the slave castles where the water is cursed From where police brutality's not half as nice It makes the hood in America look like paradise I'm from where the gold and diamonds are ripped from the earth Right next to the slave castles where the water is cursed From where police brutality's not half as nice It makes the hood in America look like paradise I'm from where the gold and diamonds are ripped from the earth Right next to the slave castles where the water is cursed From where police brutality's not half as nice It makes the hood in America look like paradise Compared to the AIDS infested Caribbean slum African streets where the pa**port's an American gun From where they ma**acre people and try to keep it quiet And spend the next 25 years try'na deny it I'm from where they cut your hands off if you make a fist And n***as grow c**a 'cause the job market doesn't exist Except slave labor modern day company store And peacekeepers don't ever, ever, ever come here no more From where the bombs that they used to drop on Vietnam Still has children born deformed 8 month before they gone I'm from where they lost the true meaning of the Qur'an Cuz h**n is not compatible with Islam And n***as know that but grow that poppy seed anyway 'Cause that food drop parachute does not come every day I'm from where people pray to the gods of their conquerors And practically every president's a money launderer From where the only place democracy's acceptable Is if America's candidate is electable And they might even have a black president but he's useless 'Cause he does not control the economy, stupid Lock and load your gun where I'm from the 3rd world son (ain't nothing nice) been to many places but i'm 3rd world born, Guerillas hit and run where i'm from the 3rd world son (ain't nothing nice) you polluted everything and now the 3rd world's gone. Water is poison where i'm from the 3rd world son (ain't nothing nice) 700 children died by the end of this song, Revolution'll come where I'm from the 3rd world son (ain't nothing nice) constant occupation leaves the 3rd world torn. I'm from where the Catholic Church is some racist sh** They helped Europe and America rape this b**h They pray to white Spanish Jesus, whose face is this? But never talk about the black pope Gelasius I'm from where Soviet weapons still decide elections Military's like the mafia you pay for protection Catamite s** tours is what country sells And rich white business men make the best clientele I'm from where they too p**y to come film Survivor And they murder Coca-Cola union organizers I'm from where the justice system esta podrido (is rotten) f** government n***as politic over perico (snow - slang for c**aine) Rebelde concido, enterado vivo, como otro Argentino desaparecido (Rebel known, heard live, as another Argentine disappeared) 'cause RICO laws don't apply to the CIA And muthaf**as make sneakers for a quarter a day I'm from where they overthrow democratic leaders Not for the people, but for the Wall Street Journal readers From where blacks, indigenous peoples and Asians Were once the slaves of Caucasians And it's amazin' how they trained them To be racist against themselves in the place they was raised in You kept us caged in Destroyed our culture and said that you civilized us Raped our women and when we were born you despised us Gentrified us agent provocateurs divide us And crucified every revolutionary messiah So I'ma start a global riot that not even your fake Anti-communist dictators can keep quiet f** your charity medicine tryna' murder me The immunizations you gave us were full of mercury So now I see the 3rd world like the rap game soldier Nationalize the industry and take it over
