Immortal Technique (Spoken):
You know what? Fuck Dirty Harry.
We got guns too, nigga!
Fuck the Terminator, nigga.
Fuck Rambo, nigga!



The ghetto is like a prison with invisible bars
No matter where you at always follows you where you are
And it's hard out there for a pimp to get outta
But it's harder for the hooker that he beat the shit outta

I got niggas underground in the confederate states
Ironically runnin' from slavery that prison creates
So I never hate on the south, I respect they vision
I just hate on the niggas that promote Samboism

And white execs that love to see us in that position
They reflect the stereotypes of America's vision
They want us dancin', coonin' and hollerin'
Only respect us, for playin' sports and modelin'

More than racism, it's stay-in-your-place-ism
Our people are trapped in practical black-face-ism
So fuck a civil war between the north and the south
It's between field niggas and slaves that are stuck in the house

Chuck D:
Civil war for the soul of a nation
This is a struggle to save civilization
Demonstrations overthrowin' the occupation
The annihilation of mental colonization

Civil war for the soul of a nation
We fight for the future of our civilization
Destroy the corrupt government organizations
Tryin' to survive cultural assassination

Killer Mike:
Crip niggas, blood nigga, eses, asians
Why the fuck we warring with each other's population
The devil want us dead, all our population
People in folk nation, why the separation

Why we got Jamaicans hatin' on Hatians
When the British and French raped both nations
Mexicans and Blacks kill each other, straight hatin'
While the government profits from prison population

If you on the bottom, be you Anglo or Asian
You gotta recognize the realness of what I'm sayin'
You gotta recognize another G ain't the enemy
When the police ride, they kill us frequently

We gotta make the youth see, where the truth be
If you a G, then go and develop GD
50 years of gangs and our people still poor
If we really run the streets, we should really end war

Chuck D:
Civil war, for the soul of a nation
This is a struggle to save civilization
Demonstrations overthrowin' the occupation
The annihilation of mental colonization

Civil war, for the soul of a nation
We fight for the future of our civilization
Destroy the corrupt government organizations
Tryin' to survive cultural assassination

Brother Ali:
Listen, our hearts were torn apart just like Yahweh's
Watchin' towers full of souls fall to sawdust
Every time we called your office you ignored us
Now you holdin' hearin's on us all inside of Congress

Microscopes on us, ask if we're Jihadists
My answer was in line with all of the Founding Fathers
I think Patrick said it best, Give me liberty or death
I shall never accept anything less

You claim innocence, you play victimless
But you gave the kiss of death in the name of self-defense
Slavery and theft have brought other nations to the end
To pacify your citizenry with success

We believe in freedom, justice, security
But they're only good when applied universally
So certainly if I rage against the machine
My aim was only to clean the germs out of the circuitry

Heard you need puttin' fear inside your heart
Make you burn Qu'rans and tell me not to build a Mosque
Me, my wife and babies we ain't never made Jihad
We just want to touch our heads to the floor and talk to God

Ask him to remove every blemish from our heart
The greatest threat of harm doesn't come from any bomb
The moment you refuse the human rights for just a few
What happens when that few includes you

Civil war
