Verse 1Pharoahe Monch

Left, huh, left-right, left-right
Wing hates exposure, but love a defeatist to death, right?
Beat the defeatist morality 'til there's no feet left, right?
Teach us the killer mentality to shove us some tech
We are just another formality of government threat
But Lord, what's worse is even after I served
After I followed the scriptures and honored the word
After I fought for America, got what I deserved
Came back to racism, absurd
You look down on me while I pick the garbage, you enjoy your melanin curb
I'm like, "what's your thoughts, son, your bird's eye, bitch?
You probably thinkin' I'm itchin' for my post-traumatic, huh?
Is it because I'm twitchin' from the most dramatic shit I've ever seen?"
My commanding officer yelling at the pregnant woman to drink from the latrine
Little baby body layin' face down on the ravine
I thought I'd be an action figure
Kung-fu grip, and that ain't even the half, my nigga
When I needed medication the doctor wouldn't respond
Even when I told him I was the very first to respond
He said..

ChorusPharoahe Monch

Step left-right, left-right
Step left-right, left-right
Step left-right, left-right
Right, left-right, left-right

Verse 2Reks

Complexities of our complexion
Different shape and size, look in the eyes, see a reflection
Of what we feed mind, and body get chose
Your alkaline skin glows
Pharmaceutical companies pimp us like hoes
With quick fixes mixin' the elixirs, too addictive
Momma's prescription is the side effect, small printin'
It's all business, industrial, revolution music
You listen to it to just numb the reality
Desentizized mentality, tablet to tongue to have relief
The doctor's bedside manner make nana have belief
Soilin' the soil tap water, we need to boil no seeds
It's GMO if it grow, it needs to spoil, man-made
Manipulation unpure, it's unnatural
Doctors said it, we say it's factual, watch the ph scale
Don't let them sell you on depression pills and chemo
Lessons from the keynote, speaker on systems, we know

ChorusPharoahe Monch

Step left-right, left-right
Step left-right, left-right
Step left-right, left-right
Right, left-right, left-right
