Ignorant Ish

lyrics

Lock away the secrets and water the books
Knowledge for a few who I argue are some crooks
With all of that aside, let's take a deeper look
33 degrees, on your knees and now you're hooked
Read between the lines, pay attention to the symbols
Awareness is the key, walk this line so nimble
Thread it with a thimble, analyze the patterns
History will show you the growth of dark matter
Watch the evil spread, we sit and break bread
Then turn on each other put that gun up to my head
Go on pull that trigger, show me what you're not
An independent thinker, yes I see that you forgot
Let the tables turn as we thicken up the plot
You thought you on top till they busted in your spot
Ended your parade, destroyed your charade
And your brother was the one who dropped the dime that they should raid

Trust, we got none
Lust, we got tons
Driven by desires, we're too focused on self
Greed fulfills our needs when we know nothing else

Legal pill pushers, legal pill poppers
Medicated nation yeah it's too late to stop them
Obsessed with their profits, laboratory, office
Feed them with religion, be submissive, no stopping
Put them in the coffin, to the ashes we toss them
Away, the day, the pain, the fix
The needle, the spoon, the flame, the chemist
The money trickles up as they label us a blemish
Keep the cycle spinning, propagate distractions
Move behind the curtains while we watch the main attraction
Tinker with our food, numb all our senses
Control of the masses is always the mission
The sugar, the soda, the water, the screens
Grasping what we want but neglecting what we need
Lost in translation, lost in our greed
Playing for our self when we're on the same team

Trust, we got none
Lust, we got tons
Driven by desires, we're too focused on self
Greed fulfills our needs when we know nothing else

Pimping ain't easy with a pocket full of stones
I'm sorry Mrs. Jackson stack this bread all on my own
Influences bad habits onto younger generations
Without having the most critical conversations
That shiny gold chain, it's still just a chain
Brag about riches but they still control your fame
You signed away your image, you signed away your name
Now they getting wealthy off of every move you make
Took that advance now the balance you can't shake
Molding you in their image but you cannot relate
The disconnect grows, you question all your faith
You're leaping off the edge into a pit full of snakes
Gasping for air in a world full of fakes
Fifteen minutes pass and they all forgot your name
You blew through the money now you got nothing to save
Welcome to the dark side where dreams bleed away

Trust, we got none
Lust, we got tons
Driven by desires, we're too focused on self
Greed fulfills our needs when we know nothing else
