It's time to realize,
The truth in disguise,
The lies in their eyes,
It's the best policy,
to look in the face of evil,
it's no fallacy,
and now you see,
the truth in me,
the faith, to be.
or not to be,
is that the question? Or the ANSWER?
Listen to me, and It'll set you free.

Gotta take it,
never break it,
'till your awake, yet
your asleep.
Deaf, dumb, blind, and unaware of your surroundings
they surround you.
I'm not trying to state the obvious,
but expose the sneaky,
the words that come from the snake-like jowels of the media,
I'll give you more info on them than Wikipedia.

I give you the image,
the stereotype,
the one full mold that is generic.
Used for the everyday man,
the do what you can,
but dont do what you plan,
instant life...ban.
These people are more rascist
then the Ku Klux Klan.
And yet, they're subtle.
They stare you down like a dog,
and judge you, mess with your head,
and when they finish, the make it hard for you to even sleep in your own bed,
instead, just smile and stay for a while,
join me in the reform I like to call,
The Long Mile.
