  • Don't you dare
    Interrupt the white house ball,
    Were living scared
    It's in foreign fields the soldiers fall
    Ooh la la la

    Snatch em in the prime, go ahead that's fine, that's fine
    Just go drill for grease
    Like a diamond thief
    There mamas will be alright
    Just give em time,
    Go get you money right
    You wont loose no sleep tonight

    Nominate your kids I think they'd prove your theory right
    Would you watch them die

    Like tryna get a hold of smoke and water,
    Coming up with nothing every time
    How come we ain't getting any closer
    Tryna find the truth behind the lies

    Look up look up,
    See a dead man walking,
    See his baby face
    Hey lets duplicate a few,
    Ooh la la la la
    That don't mean much to you
    If you need some help,
    Send some hippies in to help you think more than you do
    Hows about another line or two,
    To pick u up, pick u up
    While your people drown

    I hope your happy and you sleep so great at night
    While the lovers cry

    Like tryna get a hold of smoke and water,
    Coming up with nothing every time
    How come we ain't getting any closer
    Tryna find the truth behind the lies

    Hm hm hm hm
    Hm hm hm hm

    How many lives will you sacrifice,
    Will you ever be satisfied
    If in god you trust,
    Can't you hear him still
    I ain't no preacher but
    Thou shalt not kill

    Govermental, confusion
    Govermentalist, delusion
    Govermental confusion
    A bunch of govermentalist, it's delusion

    Like tryna get a hold of smoke and water,
    Coming up with nothing every time
    How come we ain't getting any closer
    Tryna find the truth behind the lies

    Hm hm hm hm
    Hm hm hm hm

    Govermental, confusion
    Govermentalist, delusion
    Govermental confusion
    A bunch of govermentalist, it's delusion

    And all that were left with is a hand full of nothing,
    Hand full of nothing
    That's all that I got
    Hand full of nothing

    Hm hm hm hm
