Song Lyrics

My advice, don't stop rhymin', UPS not hirin'
And this ain't the glory days, you can't get consignment
It's Top Ramen, it's Boko Haram
It's non-violence in Afrikaans
That's three round burst firin'
It's Miriam Mekeba openin' for Paul Simon
Rufaro stadium, pull up in the blue Renault
All the ministers have Mercedes, or the new Peugot
That's when you kindly know, it's that kind of show
They the type, hit your blunt, just let the run go
I'd rather come through your front door
Shorty can't eat no book, what I told Ta-Nehesi Coates
The room was thick with smoke
CD changer had a remote, remote battery low
I laughed, 'cause sadly you think it's a joke

Told my children Western education is forbidden
Might as well sell what's left of your Ritalin
No loose ends, took an acetalyne torch to the filaments
Told my children Western education is forbidden
Might as well sell what's left of your Ritalin
No loose ends, took an acetalyne torch to the filaments

Lines like Aikman in '95, whole team high
Plot twist, told Leon, "let me drive"
Took my sweet time, the scenic route
The leaf, kaffir lime
Hit police with crisp hand signals, then the peace sign
Wood burnin', we don't slice up this type of pie
Gears turnin', certain e'rything I learned in community college was a lie
Called him, the call's comin' from inside
Farenheit was set in '99, but it wasn't fire this time
The touch screen cold, glow, shine
Couldn't read a book if I tried
A failure of imagination, they say the treatment outpatient
E'rything outdated the day it come out
Hurtlin' down the ground racin'

Release and stay
Or I let you flay
All these games, I
You can take me, you can take me
But you'll never take my name
You can take me, you can take me
But you're just mining for my name
Started light but they scarred and white
Oh freedom, oh freedom
The
Oh freedom, oh freedom
Who's watchin' anyway
