  • It's so loud inside my head
    With words that I should have said
    As I drown in my regrets
    I can't take back the words I never said
    I can't take back the words I never said

    I really think the war on terror is a bunch of bullshit
    Just a poor excuse for you to use up all your bullets
    How much money does it take to really make a full clip
    Nine eleven building seven did they really pull it?
    Uh, and a bunch of other cover ups
    Your child's future was the first to go with budget cuts
    If you think that hurts then, wait here comes the uppercut
    The school was garbage in the first place, that's on the up and up
    Keep you at the bottom but tease you with the upper crust
    You get it then they move you so you never keeping up enough
    If you turn on TV all you see's a bunch of "what the fucks"
    Dude is dating so and so blabbering bout such and such
    And that ain't Jersey Shore, homie that's the news
    And these the same people that supposed to be telling us the truth
    Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn Beck is a racist
    Gaza strip was getting bombed, Obama didn't say shit
    That's why I ain't vote for him, next one either
    I'ma part of the problem, my problem is I'm peaceful
    And I believe in the people
    Yeah

    It's so loud inside my head
    With words that I should have said!
    As I drown in my regrets
    I can't take back the words I never said
    I can't take back the words I never said

    Now you can say it ain't our fault if we never heard it
    But if we know better than we probably deserve it
    Jihad is not a holy war, wheres that in the worship?
    Murdering is not Islam!
    And you are not observant
    And you are not a Muslim
    Israel don't take my side 'cause look how far you've pushed them
    Walk with me into the ghetto, this where all the Kush went
    Complain about the liquor store but what you drinking liquor for?
    Complain about the gloom but when'd you pick a broom up?
    Just listening to Pac ain't gone make it stop
    A rebel in your thoughts, ain't gon' make it halt
    If you don't become an actor you'll never be a factor
    Pills with million side effects
    Take 'em when the pains felt
    Wash them down with diet soda
    Killin' off your brain cells
    Crooked banks around the World
    Would gladly give a loan today
    So if you ever miss a payment
    They can take your home away

    It's so loud inside my head
    With words that I should have said!
    As I drown in my regrets
    I can't take back the words I never said, never said
    I can't take back the words I never said

    I think that all the silence is worse than all the violence
    Fear is such a weak emotion that's why I despise it
    We scared of almost everything, afraid to even tell the truth
    So scared of what you think of me, I'm scared of even telling you
    Sometimes I'm like the only person I feel safe to tell it to
    I'm locked inside a cell in me, I know that there's a jail in you
    Consider this your bailing out, so take a breath, inhale a few
    My screams is finally getting free, my thoughts is finally yelling through

    It's so loud inside my head
    With words that I should have said
    As I drown in my regrets
    I can't take back the words I never said Writer/s: Alexander Junior Grant, Holly Hafermann, Wasalu Jaco
