Yo, I wanna get high
I wanna get high

Walking through campus with my backpack
Bailin' to orientation
So I can change the nation
See many faces but none of 'em mirror me
Show my ID to the punk ass security
Step on the quad, lookin' for the track squad
Walked by a bitch who think she's God
Passing me a flyer, talkin' 'bout the Messiah
She wanna take me higher
Keep your rhetoric in the heavens
Look and see a bro' with a fro like Michael Evans
Done spent 6 years in the college
Always telling me to question the knowledge
Sittin' in the black hole with the black stroll
And not even one cave bitch in our click
Sayin', fuck Professor Fitz
I come from the land of the Bloods and the Crips (What's up nigga)
Don't like scholarships because they hurt me
Nothin' but a slave to the university
That's why ya see me on the track field run by ya
Caught by a liar who wanna take me higher

Shit, he wanna take me higher
Wait until they get a load of me, shit shit
I wanna get high, so high
Chocolate Thai

I wanna take flight, ya goddamn right
It's a party every fucking night
Been there for about six weeks
Walked by the freaks
Look, black greeks
How the fuck ya figure
I dig ya me bein' from niggafied nigga
White boy in the room with me
Who never saw BET, what the fuck
He's about to erupt and turn red
Start hangin' with the muthafuckin' skinheads
'Cause he can't deal with the overkill
College ain't nothin' but niggerville
And he regret that his school is filled
With niggers, jews and wetbacks
Plus chinks, now he drinks
Hour after hour, screaming white power
Motherfucker want me to call him sire
He wanna take me higher

Shit he wanna take me higher
Shit wait until they get a load of me
Shit shit shit

A girl gets date raped just like that
At a frat, now she chase the cat
Feminist saying women is God's gift
Do you need a lift, can I take a sniff
Do I sound sexist 'cause I'm chasin'
After Deja, she from Texas?
Down to kick the asses of the fascists
Who wanna put me in the oven and burn me to ashes
But I'm not burnin', the world keeps turnin'
And nobody learnin'
'Cause college is full of shit
Teachin' me to memorize nothin' but the lies
Chillin' at a rally for peace
The beast from white power up in the tower
With the M-1 gun and a scope on dope
Thinkin' he's the great white hope
Motherfucker levels off
He wanna see me six feet deep shoveled off
'Cause Columbus University is nothing but a empire
Who wanna take me higher

Shit they wanna take me higher
Wait until they get a load of me
Shit they wanna take me higher
They wanna take me higher
Unh damn, they wanna take me higher
Damn, wait until they get a load of me
Damn, unh, they wanna take me, they wanna take me
Them muthafuckas'll never break me, shit
