lyrics

You made yourself a slave to the man
You made yourself a slave to beer can
You made yourself a slave to the crack
You made yourself a slave to the payback
You made yourself a slave to herd
You made yourself a slave to wrong words
You made yourself a slave to hate
You made yourself a slave to going rate

You made yourself a slave to grass
You made yourself a slave to wrong ass
You made yourself a slave to vd
You made yourself a slave to tv
You made yourself a slave to grind
You made yourself a slave to wrong minds
You made yourself a slave to a fake god
You made yourself a slave to the cash wad

Get up, get up, get up, get up
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
Stand up, stand up, stand up, stand up
...and get down

What's the price you pay for being a slave
What's the price you pay for the roads you don't pave
What's the price you pay for being cool
What's the price you pay for being a fool
What's the price you pay for being dumb
What's the price you pay for getting some
What's the price you pay for being asleep
What's the price you pay for not making a peep

What's the price you pay for being greedy
What's the price you pay for ignoring the needy
What's the price you pay for hating the ladies
What's the price you pay for not feeding the babies
What's the price you pay for being numb
What's the price you pay for dropping the bomb
What's the price you pay for being a slave
What's the price you pay for the lives you don't save

Get up, get up, get up, get up
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
Stand up, stand up, stand up, stand up
...and get down

It destroys your goals to be such a fool
It steals your soul to be such a fool
It eats your mind to be such a fool
It burns your eyes blind to be such a fool
It ends your schemes to be such a fool
It crushes your dreams to be such a fool
It costs you your name to be such a fool
It makes you lame to be such a fool

It takes all your power to be such a fool
It makes you a coward to be such a fool
It cuts you like a knife to be such a fool
It ends your fucking life to be such a fool
It spends all your ends to be such a fool
It drives away all your friends to be such a fool
It makes you a slave to be such a fool
It drives you to your fucking grave to be such a fool

Get up, get up, get up, get up
Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
Stand up, stand up, stand up, stand up
...and get down

about

Revolutionary Exchange Records Washington, D.C.

Trying to be both Chuck D and Flava Flav

My music has been described as "Nerdcore." I'm okay with that.

My rhymes are so dense you're gonna need footnotes.

More pop culture references than you can shake a boomstick at!

Lyrical collage. Intellectual barrage.

And other semi-clever phrases that make me smile and make you think less of me as a human being!
