Let me now turn to our program for the future
The economy right now, is extremely supportive
Of the President and his policies
FBI scientists have found chemical traces

Consistent with a bomb or a missile on a piece of wreckage
Police using clubs and tear gas against demonstrators
They called me a motherfucking so and so and a white fascist
Like they said, "You're getting some of your own medicine"

Telling lies to our children
Telling lies to our children
Telling lies to our babies
Only truth can take us

You can't fool all the people all of the time
But if you fool the right ones, then the rest will fall behind
Tell me who's got control of your mind, your world view
Is it the news or the movie you're taking your girl to?

Know what I'm saying 'cause Uncle Sam got a plan
If you examine what they telling us then you will understand
What they planting in the seeds of the next generation
Feeding our children miseducation

No one knows if there's UFOs or any life on Mars
Or what they do when they up in the stars
Because I don't believe a word of what the President said
He filling our head with lies got us hypnotized

When he be speaking in cold words about crime and poverty
Drugs, welfare, prisons, guns and robbery
It really means us, there's no excuse for the slander
But what's good for the goose, is still good for the gander

See

I don't believe Bob Marley died from cancer
31 years ago I woulda been a panther
They killed Huey 'cause they knew he had the answer
The views that you see in the news is propaganda

Telling lies to our children
Telling lies to our children
Telling lies to our babies
Only truth can take us

I don't want no computer chip in my arm
I don't wanna die by a nuclear bomb
I say we all rush the Pentagon, pull out guns
And grab the intercom, my first word's will be I believe

Man made God outta ignorance and fear
If God made man then why the hell would He put us here?
I thought He's supposed to be the all loving
The same God who let Hitler put the Jews in the oven

We don't fall for the regular shit, they try to feed us
All this half-ass leadership, flipping position
They turn politician and shut the hell up and follow tradition
For your TV screen is telling lies to your vision

Every channel got some brainwashed cop shit to watch
Running up in niggas cribs claiming that they heard shots
It's a plot but busta can you tell me who's greedier?
Big corporations, the pigs or the media?

Sign of the times, terrorism on the rise
Commercial airplanes, falling out the sky like flies
Make me wonder what secrets went down with Bob Brown
Who burnt churches to the ground with no evidence found?

It's not coincidence, it's been too many studied incidents
It coulda been the Klan who put that bomb at the Olympics
But it probably was the FBI, deep at the call
'Cause if they make us all panic then they can start martial law

I don't believe Bob Marley died from cancer
31 years ago I woulda been a panther
They killed Huey 'cause they knew he had the answer
The views that you see in the news is propaganda

I don't believe Bob Marley died from cancer
31 years ago I woulda been a panther
They killed Huey 'cause they knew he had the answer
The views that you see in the news is motherfucking propaganda

Police is telling lies fooling millions
What are they teaching our kids in these school buildings?
Televised, enterprised in all the killing
Controlling our lives, this ain't living, no this ain't living

FBI, CIA, ATF, KKK
IRS, TNT, CBS, NBC
FBI, CIA, ATF, KKK
IRS, TNT, CBS, NBC

Telling lies to our children
Telling lies to our children
Telling lies to our babies
Only truth can take us

We view each other with a great love and a great understanding
And that we try to expand this to the general black population
And also people, oppressed people all over the world
And, I think that we differ from some other groups simply

Because we understand the system better
Than most groups understand the system and with this
Realization, we attempt to form a strong political base
Based in the community with the only strength
That we have and that's the strength of
A potentially destructive force if we don't get freedom
