You must be
A radio station
And who are we, we must be
A number one songs spinning all day long

And over again and over again
And over again and over again
And over again and we know when
When we call in and nothing's free

Sounds to me like
State run radio, state run radio
State run radio, state run radio
State run radio, state run radio
State run radio, state run radio

We interrupt this broadcast
To bring you this special message 'bout the forecast
The future's cloudy and it's rainin' on the poor class
Road to peace is closed, heavy traffic's on the war paths

Love is ballin' on a budget
The military says it's gon' need more cash
To keep fighting for your gas, keep us in our hoods
And hope we never explore pass, stay inside of your half

Believe the lies you learned in your class
That there's no treasure in your trash
And the ceiling has the same feeling that the floor has
And that's where you should stay, this is what they play

Over again and over again
And over again and over again
And over again and we know when
When we call in and nothing's free

Sounds to me like
State run radio, state run radio
State run radio, state run radio
State run radio, state run radio
State run radio, state run radio

Your now tuned into the weakest
Frequency of fear, keep you locked right here
And hope you never leave this, never be a leader
Think inside the box and follow all procedures

Never ever believe that you will never need this
Hit up all your friends and tell them to repeat this
Hi, you're on the air, now what you wanna hear?
We ain't got the truth but how about a remix?

Different is never good, good is only what we pick
You ain't got a hit unless it sounds like these did
Not too smart, you will be a superstar
And if you dumb or something maybe you could be number one

Over again and over again
And over again and over again
And over again and we know when
When we call in and nothing's free

Sounds to me like
State run radio, state run radio
State run radio, state run radio
State run radio, state run radio
State run radio, state run radio

So beware what's on the airwaves
And be more aware of what's not getting' airplay
Independent spirit, you can barely hear what they're sayin'
Truth ain't gettin' on like shampoo on an airplane

Propaganda's everywhere, constantly on replay
All the hits, all the time, back to back on relay
When really where it lives, make the records we play
Build your own station, become your own DJs

You must be
A radio station
And who are we, we must be
A number 1 songs spinning all day long

And you put me
In daily rotation
You're on the air, we know your scam
But we don't care, we'll play here

Over again and over again
And over again and over again
And over again and we know when
When we call in and nothing's free

Sounds to me like
State run radio, state run radio
State run radio, state run radio
State run radio, state run radio
State run radio, state run radio

State run radio, state run radio
State run radio, state run radio
State run radio, state run radio
State run radio, state run radio

JACO, WASALU / MAZOOR, DAVID
