How I Won The War (Slug)

This song is by Atmosphere.

the first time they came to get me for their war
They were easy to play I acted dumb and grinned
Contrary to what we might assume everybody loves a dummy
Cause you aint gotta squint when the lights are dim
They read their papers out loud to me
I smiled and nodded my head up and down careful not to make a sound
They told me when and where im supposed to arrive
Never gave a second thought to whether or not I would oblige
I imaged the look on their face as they looked
At their face of their clocks, tapping their foot as they wait
How long would it take to realize
I must have skated or got lost on the way before they called it a day
Fuck that, im on the other side of the city
In a bed breathing heavy with my favourite betty
And I'll be damned if im gonna catch a slug for you
So I changed my name to slug so that ya'll would never catch me

The second time they found me they wanted to drown me
Yes man doesn't like being made into mice
Started running their shmeal about love and dedication
How I should feel, as if I owe their nation my life
"look boy" they say, "don't you love your freedom?"
I told them freedom is a road seldom travelled by the multitudes
And I said they were suckers, as I pulled out my mess
And started jerking off right there on top of their desk
Picture this, me standing their digging my fist
Like, what what what? Bought to bust on a nut on their list
They cursed and gave me an informal dispersal
But im like "sir won't you let me get my rocks off first yo?"
Its weird how acting like a hype is like being a hype
Its just a thin line that separates the two
And now my mind likes to walk both sides of the stripe
If only I could manifest my fate for the way I do

The third time they came was a charm
And I was tired and tried barely hanging from this yarn
The last two times I lost my path and my mind
What the hell I might as well as lose the farm
Take me, make me, train me, break me
teach me to hold my anger like a lady
Show me the right way to save these babies
Throw me into this world that hates me
Here I am in a land that don't feel foreign
Following a plan, trying to find my portion
Still lost and still fondling my foreskin
Make me into a man but I still feel like an orphan
But I learned how to stand behind a purpose
The world is a circus and im a soldier guarding the tent
Weapon in hand, I represent and defend my hip hop nation until the end

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the hip hop cultures four elements
And to the originality in which it stands the Zulu nation under god
Peace love unity and justice for all (x7)
