Immortal Technique - Civil War lyrics

[Immortal Technique] The ghetto is like a prison, with invisible bars No matter where you ride, it always follows you where you are And its hard out there, for a pimp to get outta But its harder for the hooker that he beat the sh** outta I got n***as underground in the Confederate States Ironically runnin from slavery that prison creates So I never hate on the south, I respect they vision I just hate on n***as that promote Samboism And white execs that love to see us in that position They reflect the stereotypes of Americas vision They want us dancing, cooning and hollering Only respect us for playing sports and modeling More than racism, its stay in your place-ism More people are trapped in practical blackface-ism So f** a Civil War between the North and the South Its between field n***as and slaves that are stuck in the house [Chorus: Chuck D] Civil war for the soul of a nation This is a struggle to save civilization Demonstrations overthrowing the occupation The annihilation of mental colonization Civil war for the soul of a nation We fight for the future of our civilization Destroy the corrupt government organizations Trying to survive cultural a**a**ination [k**er Mike] Crip n***as, Blood n***a, eses, Asians Why the f** we warring with each others population? The devil wanna dead all our population People in Folk nation, why the separation? Why we got Jamaicans hatin on Haitians When the British and French raped both nations? Mexicans and Blacks k** each other, straight hating While the government profits from prison population If you on the bottom, be you Anglo or Asian You gotta recognize the realness of what Im sayin You gotta recognize another G aint the enemy When the police ride to k** us frequently We gotta make the youth see, where the truth be If you a G, then grow and develop GD 50 years of gangs and our people still poor If we really run the streets, we should really end war [Chorus: Chuck D] Civil war for the soul of a nation This is a struggle to save civilization Demonstrations overthrowing the occupation The annihilation of mental colonization Civil war for the soul of a nation We fight for the future of our civilization Destroy the corrupt government organizations Trying to survive cultural a**a**ination [Brother Ali] Listen, our hearts were torn apart just like yall was Watching towers full of souls fall to sawdust Everytime we called your office you ignored us Now you holding hearings on us all inside a Congress Microscopes on us, ask if were Jihadists My answer was in line with all of the Founding Fathers I think Patrick said it best; Give me liberty or d**h I shall never accept anything less You claim innocence, you play victimless But you gave the kiss of d**h in the name of self defense Slavery and theft have brought the nations to the end Of pacifying your citizenry with excess We believe in freedom, justice, security But theyre only pure when theyre applied universally So certainly if I rage against the machine My aim was only to clean the germs out of the circuitry Heard you need putting fear inside your heart Make you burn Qurans and tell me not to build a mosque Me, my wife and babies we aint never made jihad We just want to touch our heads to the floor and talk to God Ask him to remove every blemish from my heart The greatest threat of harm doesnt come from any bomb The moment you refuse the human rights of just a few What happens when that few includes you?
