Immortal Technique and DJ Green Lantern
3rd World motherfuckers

Im from where the gold and diamonds are ripped from the earth
Right next to the slave castles where the water is cursed
From where police brutalitys not half as nice
It makes the hood in America look like paradise

Compared to the AIDS infested Caribbean slum
African streets where the passport's an American gun
From where they massacre people and try to keep it quiet
And spend the next 25 years try'na deny it

Im from where they cut your hands off if you make a fist
And niggas grow cocoa 'cause the job market doesnt exist
Except slave labor modern day company store
And peace keepers dont ever, ever, ever come here no more

From where the bombs that they used to drop on Vietnam
Still has children born deformed 8 month before they gone
Im from where they lost the true meaning of the Quran
'Cuz heroin is not compatible with Islam

And niggas know that but grow that poppy seed anyway
'Cause that food drop parachute does not come every day
Im from where people pray to the gods of their conquerors
And practically every president's a money launderer

From where the only place democracy's acceptable
Is if Americas candidate is electable
And they might even have a black president but hes useless
'Cause he does not control the economy stupid

Lock and load your gun where Im from the 3rd world son
Been to many places but Im 3rd world born
Guerrillas hit and run where Im from the 3rd world son
You polluted everything and now the 3rd worlds gone

The water is poison where Im from the 3rd world son
700 children died by the end of this song
Revolution'll come where Im from the 3rd world son
Constant occupation leaves the 3rd world torn

Im from where the Catholic church is some racist shit
They helped Europe and America rape this bitch
They pray to white Spanish Jesus whose face is this
But never talk about the black pope Gelasius

Im from where Soviet weapons still decide elections
Militarys like the mafia you pay for protection
Catamite sex tours is what the country sells
And rich white business men make the best clientele

Im from where they too pussy to come film Survivor
And they murder Coca-Cola union organizers
Im from where the justice system esta podrido
Fuck government niggas politic over perico

Rebelde concido, enterado vivo
Como otro Argentino desaparecido
'Cause RICO laws dont apply to the CIA
And muthafuckas make sneakers for a quarter a day

Im from where they overthrow democratic leaders
Not for the people but for the Wall Street Journal readers
From where blacks, indigenous peoples and Asians
Were once the slaves of Caucasians

And its amazin' how they trained them to be racist against themselves
In the place they was raised in, you kept us caged in
Destroyed our culture and said that you civilized us
Raped our women and when we were born you despised us

Gentrified us agent provocateurs divide us
And crucified every revolutionary messiah
So Im a start a global riot that not even your fake
Anti-communist dictators can keep quiet

Fuck your charity medicine tryna' murder me
The immunizations you gave us were full of mercury
So now I see the 3rd world like the rap game soldier
Nationalize the industry and take it over

Lock and load your gun where Im from the 3rd world son
Been to many places but Im 3rd world born
Guerrillas hit and run where Im from the 3rd world son
You polluted everything and now the 3rd worlds gone

The water is poison where Im from the 3rd world son
700 children died by the end of this song
Revolution'll come where Im from the 3rd world son
Constant occupation leaves the 3rd world torn
