​Mindfuck (A New Equation)

This song is by The Coup and appears on the album Pick a Bigger Weapon (2006).

They're givin' us a mind fuck
They ain't gotta put our hands in cuffs
They can tell us stay put and that's enough
We bust, they feel the earth vibratin'
It ain't a earthquake, we just need a new equation

Mind fuck; they ain't gotta put our hands in cuffs
They can tell us stay put and that's enough
We bust, they feel the earth vibratin
It ain't a earthquake, we just need a new equation

The fog rolls in like the thickest cream
Nightfall comes and the crickets scream
Deafened by the latest lotto ticket schemes
Cement lies and white picket dreams

The pain on his face is glistening
No one's eyes are listening
Till his 44 starts whistling
Hairs on necks bristling

You can holla so loud till the silence comes
Ask that hustler with the Midas tongue
He was born after you but not quite as young
Waitin for the day when the fighters come

She said, "Seem like traffic lights is always red"
"Your application's on file," is all they said
She wish the great leaders wasn't always dead
She could resurrect 'em inside of her instead

Mind fuck, they ain't gotta put our hands in cuffs
They can tell us stay put and that's enough
We bust, they feel the earth vibratin'
It ain't a earthquake, we just need a new equation

Mind fuck, they ain't gotta put our hands in cuffs
They can tell us stay put and that's enough
We bust, they feel the earth vibratin'
It ain't a earthquake, we just need a new equation

He was killed in the end by quiet persuasion
Not the FBI home invasion
Nor the cross on his lawn emblazoned
The predictable fights didn't phase him

Bullhorns-off, Holdays given
House notes - nine to five prison
He yells at the news sayin', "There'd be a movement
If the new generation was a little more driven"

One mind, two hands, four walls
She says Babylon's gon' fall
She'll tell you the signs since everybody's dumb
She'll be home waitin for the Messiah's phone call

There was pride in the fact that the blunt was massive
Tight like the ships in the middle passage
They escaped through the flames, then wondered
If the flame in their soul, if the smoke has smashed it

Mind fuck, they ain't gotta put our hands in cuffs
They can tell us stay put and that's enough
We bust, they feel the earth vibratin'
It ain't a earthquake, we just need a new equation

Mind fuck, they ain't gotta put our hands in cuffs
They can tell us stay put and that's enough
We bust, they feel the earth vibratin'
It ain't a earthquake, we just need a new equation

Day broke in like a fiend with a ladder
Suicidal dew drops splatter
Teeth on shirtless bodies chatter
A blowjob short of a breakfast platter

Crowded rooms on lonely souls
At work before the whistle blows
They never known their strength in numbers
So power seems so mystical

They're waiting for that perfect day
When they've paid all their bills
They kids are grown, they graduate
And guerillas come out the hills

And for her it gets too much
Till she won't accept my touch
She'll fix it by herself
She's fallen into their mind fuck

Mind fuck, ain't gotta put our hands in cuffs
They can tell us stay put and that's enough
We bust, they feel the earth vibratin
It ain't a earthquake, we just need a new equation

Mind fuck, ain't gotta put our hands in cuffs
They can tell us stay put and that's enough
We bust, they feel the earth vibratin
It ain't a earthquake, we just need a new equation
