The Lyrics

Well hopefully all you AIR member remember one of the first original rap songs by Grandmaster Flash… I’ve updated to reflect some new societal issues. Enjoy (or not!). Your choice…
It’s like a jungle some times and yet you wonder
Why we’re fighting with each other

-Watch your ass - everywhere
-People shooting up a school - they offer thoughts and prayers
-The children they yell, guns they destroy
-Yet the N-R-A will shout - it’s my freedom’s voice
-Deals in the back room, stab us in the back
-Riots at the rally wearing MAGA hats
-They’re gonna get away and it’s so bizarre
-Cause a man who is colored wouldn’t get too far

[Hook:]
—Can’t you see we’re all close to the edge
—Pol-i-tics make us lose our heads
-It’s like a jungle some times and yet you wonder
-Why we’re fighting with each other

-Qanon the nut group following my pillow
-Spreading all the crazy lies, that’s what makes the money flow
-Crazy lady, Karen is a drag
-Eating avocado kale, flies her Union Jack flag
-Winters in Orlando, thinks her hubby’s Rambo
-A Botox princess who has lost her senses
-Down at the Trump show hanging with her peeps
-The ignorant they worry we’ll invade their home
-They don’t like the city they don’t deserve our pity
-She better get a grip or she will reap what she has sewn

[Hook]

-Another guy who’s mad on the Fucking T.V.
-People watching too much, it's just not healthy
-Watching Piers in the daytime,Tucker at night
-To them its all a game getting people to fight
-The spam detectors protect my phone
-A way of life we all bemoan
-Got a get vaccination just to take a vacation
-Can't take the train to the job, covid’s crippling the nation
-Cops come a-long - kneeling on your back
-You stop and look around, victims all are young and black
-The streets are blood stained, tensions too strained
-Some people they have gone insane
-Get off on just inflicting pain!

[Hook]

-A child is born all ready behind
-If white skin color ain’t what you find
-They’ll be looking at you with a point of view
-In life you will suffer and it’s good for you
-You'll live in a ghetto yes it is your fate
-And if you rebel they’ll say it’s Deep State
-The prices you pay and what you say
-They will control your day-to-day
-They’ll conspire all the Wall Street deal makers
-White collar butchers yes they’re all law breakers
-Starting our wars, having powerful friends
-And if you stop and look up - they’re all old white men, huh
-Judges, lawyers, bankers, vandals
-Rigging the game of the casino gamblers
-They make the rules - and we’re the fools
-We’re at their sweat shops while their at their swimming pools
-Now your hope’s destroyed, your paranoid
-Life to you is a big hemorrhoid
-You were a good kid but look what they done did
-Fucked you up till you hit the skids
-Now your manhood is shook and that’s the price tag
‘Blame the last four years on the orange scum bag
-Then the black man refused and Trump he fell
-Was the day we said it was time to rebel
-It was you and me that is why he lost
-Yes we knew had to fight him at any cost
-And now we all sing a Black Lives song
-Of don’t repeat the past and save the young so

[Hook]
