"Leaving The Past"
[Verse 1]They told me I would never make it, I would never achieve it Reality is nourishment, but people don't believe it I guess it's hard to stomach the truth like a bulimic it's a dirty game and nobody is willing to clean it But this is for the paraplygics, people dreamin' of runnin' ladies married to men who don't please 'em, dreamin' of comin' urbanly murderers like David Berkowitz when I'm gunnin' Some cowards on the internet didn't think I would sell scared to talk shit in person, cause they stuck in a shell and couldn't understand the pain of being stuck in a cell Hell is not a place you go, if you not a Christian it's the failure of your life's greatest ambition It's a bad decision to blindly follow any religion I don't see the difference in between the raw and the wrong Soldiers emptyin' the clips at little kids and they moms I'm just like a desperate motherfucker strapped to a bomb Humanity is gone, smoked up in a gravity bong by a democrat republican Cheech and Chong Immortal Technique, you never heard me preachin' a song I'm not controversial, I'm just speakin' the facts Put your hands in the air like you got the heat to your back and shake your body like a baby born addicted to crack And since life is a gamble like the craps tables at Vegas I freestyle my destiny, it's not written in pages
[Verse 2]I hate it when they tell us how far we came to be as if our peoples history started with slavery Painfully I discovered the shit they kept us secret this is the exodus like the black Jews out of Egypt I keep it reality based wit the music I make brought the truth to your face with the style I run wit [ From: http://www.metrolyrics.com/leaving-the-past-lyrics-immortal-technique.html ] like the navy missile that shot down flight eight hundred I'm like the Africans who came here before Colombus and from the 15-hundreds until after the model I watch Latin America get raped in the sorrow You see the Spaniards never left despues de Colon and if you don't believe me, you can click on Univision I never seen so much racism in all of my life every program and newscast, all of 'em white It's like Apartheid with ten percent ruling the rest that type of stress'll make me put the fucking tool to your chest Step in my way nigga, I wouldn't wanna be ya I burn slow like (a) pissing drunk with gonorrhea I'll do a freak show in North Korea, burning the flag while Jay Edgar Hoover politicians dress up in drag Try to confuse you, makin' it hard to follow this: capitalism and democracy are not synonymous You swallow propaganda like a birth control pill sellin' your soul to the eye on the back of the dollar bill But that will never be me, cause I'm leavin' the past like an abused wife with the kids, leavin' your ass Like a drug addict clean and sober, leavin' the stash unbreakable Technique leavin' the plane crash I'm out with the black box and I refuse to return I spit reality, instead of what you usually learn and I refuse to be concerned with condescending advice cause I'm the only motherfucker that could change my life
[Ending]Some people think I won't make it but I know that I will Escape the emptiness cause that shit is slow and it kills the flow and the skill I made y'all believe that it last You can make the future but it starts with LEAVING THE PAST
