lyrics

The people booed, the crowd was in a rage/ they're throwing everything they can lift up at the stage/ including what they used to support from what I gauged/ everybody and their momma was with it then turn the page/ management was perplexed and they canceled it same day/ they told the heads up stairs they would handle it right away/ formed a team of pros to start digging with no delay/ but they ain't have a fucking clue on what's popping on any day/ running out of time and the money slipping away/ which is really unfortunate because management under pay/ the plans they used before would already over stay/ but time is money honey the question is who are they?/ could it be the ones who took over baseball in '45?/ that thing that made it outta South Bronx is still alive?/ if I spell it out for you you wouldn't know how to act/ you gon hit the panic button when I tell em "bring it back!"

HOOK: when the people burn it down who else gon be around/ who gon really be around when it's time to come and arrest me?/ when this world burns down whole be around?/ who gon be around when they come serve and protect me?

With the focus concentrated on another human killed/ by the parasitic sentinels our government fullfilled/ we uncover some wounds some people actually thought had healed/ the blissful people thought it was coming from left field/ so yeah he had a rap sheet and pocket knife concealed/ but he seen them boys in the hood and fucking pealed/ when brothers get confronted it equals a nigga dead/ these cops have absolutely lost it and thing they're Judge Dredd/ who the fuck you serving and who the hell you protecting/ bet they wouldn't even come if I called s'why I'm defecting/ yes people started a riot they're hella fed up/ if this happens anywhere on the globe the people stand up/ but in this country this is the perfect time for a cover up/ let's justify more violence and killing, yeah that's what's up/ the nation concentrated on the Paquiao - Mayweather/ so we all can be misguided and stupid together

HOOK: when the people burn it down who else gon be around/ who gon really be around when it's time to come and arrest me?/ when this world burns down who'll be around?/ who gon be around when they come serve and protect me?
