Mankind, the public enemy's not the man who speaks his mind
The public enemy's the man that goes and acts blind
Searching for an answer that he'll never find
An action from reaction and you can't make a retraction
Once you've put your head out

And then you're blue in the face as you try to state your case
You can think with your dick but it can't shout

Yo, I try to understand what the hell is going on
I can't imagine how things ever got so far gone
You separatists, say you want your own state
I'll give them a state, a state of unconsciousness

Retribution, no solution, constitution
Discrimination through the nation raining hatred

I yell
When there's schism, you must rebel
I yell
So you'll hear
I yell
I refuse to live in your hell
I yell
I'm what you fear

I'm the truth, I don't keep it in the family
Live your life, take someone else
Keep it in the family

The real world's outside your door
You can't keep it in the family
You've got the longest way to fall
Keep it in the, keep it in the, keep it in the family

Don't even try to tell me what you think is right
When to you blacks are niggers and Jews are kikes
And you expect to be taken seriously
But your actions, they're more than curiously

Juvenile, you emulate what you hate
And you don't even know why you feel this way
'Cause daddy hated this and mommy hated that
And your own ability to reason's like a tire gone flat

Yo, I try to understand what the fuck is going on
I can't imagine how things ever got so far gone
You separatists, say you want your own state
I'll give them a state, a state of unconsciousness

Retribution, no solution, constitution
Discrimination through the nation raining hatred

I yell
When there's schism, you must rebel
I yell
So you'll hear
I yell
Yeah, I refuse to live in your hell
I yell
What you fear

I'm the truth, I don't keep it in the family
Live your life, take someone else
Keep it in the family

The real world's outside your door
You can't keep it in the family
You've got the longest way to fall

When you keep it in the, when you keep it in the
When you keep it in the family
When you keep it in the, when you keep it in the
When you keep it in the family, yeah

Reacting out of pure cold hatred
'Cause of what another's race is color of another's face
Is different and your own frustrations taking on a violent nature
Full of hate, so full of hate, you'd kill a man, is that your fate?
Your street becomes a police state, why the fuck do you hate?

Hate, hate, hate, hate
Hate, hate, hate, hate, hate
I'm not gonna stand for it, someone's gonna pay for it
I yell

We rebel, we're the truth, we don't keep it in the family
Live your life, take someone else
Keep it in the family

The real world's outside your door
You can't keep it in the family
You've got the longest way to fall
Keep it in the family

I'm the thing that you most fear
I don't keep it in the family
I am the truth that you won't hear
Keep it in the family

The real world's outside your door
You can't keep it in the family
You've got the longest way to fall
Keep it in the family, keep it in the family
Keep it in the family, keep it in the family
