    [Verse 1]
    First off say peace to Pine Ridge
    Shame at all the damage the white man wine did
    Ghost dance, Trail of Tears, 5 million beers a year
    And all that other crime did
    More peace to the teachers of blind kids
    To rebels in small cells keeping their mind big
    Say everything's hostile
    Suicide bombers and prosperity gospels, emaciated models
    With cocaine and blood pouring out their nostrils, they got to
    Just to stay awake on the catwalk of life
    where everybody watch you
    Straight hair, high heels and a handbag
    Crucifixes, racism and a land grab
    Katrina, FEMA trailers, human body sandbags
    A peace sign and a pants sag
    A money toss cause a 9 stripper mad dash
    A friend request following a hash tag
    Now everybody want it like the last laugh
    A Michael Jackson jacket or a daft mask
    Purple Jordans or the mixed girl in your math class
    Stable is when the Ba'ath had Baghdad
    But corporate jets really had to have that gas bad
    War and they hope they all fall from the ratatat
    Cause that's just more dinosaur for the Cadillac

    [Hook]
    Live from the other side what you see
    A bunch of nonsense on my TV
    Heaven on Earth is what I need
    But I feel I'm in hell every time I breathe
    Reporting live from the other side what you hear
    A bunch of nonsense all in my ear
    Rich man, poor man, we all gotta pay
    Cause freedom ain't free, especially 'round my way

    [Verse 2]
    And we marvel at the state of Ottoman
    Then turn around and treat Ghana like a garbage can
    America's a big motherfuckin' garbageman
    If you ain't know, you're part and parcel of the problem
    You say no you ain't, and I say yes you is
    Soon as you find out what planned obsolescence is
    You say no they didn't, and I say yes they did
    The definition of unnecessary-ness
    Manifested
    Say that we should protest just to get arrested
    That goes against all my hustling ethics
    A bunch of jail niggas say its highly ineffective
    Depart from Martin, connect on Malcolm X tip
    Insert Baldwin to similar the separate
    To me, the truth is more fulfilling than a meth hit
    Or finding really fast internet to have some sex with
    It's all one song short of a set list
    Couple croissants shy of a continental breakfast
    Or blowing out your birthday candles just to make a death wish
    So absurd word to Chief Bone Necklace
    Down at the Lakota Sioux Casino
    A whole culture boiled down to giving you paquino
    I go as left as a heart in the chest
    Cause the Horn of Africa is now starving to death

    [Hook]
    Live from the other side what you see
    A bunch of nonsense on my TV
    Heaven on Earth is what I need
    But I feel I'm in hell every time I breathe
    Reporting live from the other side what you hear
    A bunch of nonsense all in my ear
    Rich man, poor man, we all gotta pay
    Cause freedom ain't free, especially 'round my way

    [Verse 3]
    An all white Los Angeles, the dream of Mr. Chandler
    Hope and pray they take Columbus day up off the calendar
    South Central an example of God's gifts
    So shout to all the mothers raising babies in spa 6
    The projects of Oakland city, Detroit ghost towns
    Monopolies on poverty where D-boy coke bound
    It's parts of Manilla like the video for Thriller
    But the US Embassy is reminiscent of a villa
    If poverty is chocolate and privilege vanilla
    Then what's the flavor of the Sunday preacher's pedophilia
    Cash rules everything around these niggas
    As classrooms everywhere around me wither
    Hither you can be Mr. Burns or Mr. Smithers
    The tyrant or the slave but nowhere in the middle
    Of the extremes of America's dream
    Freud fighting Neo, Freddy Krueger refereeing, naaa?

    [Hook]
    Live from the other side what you see
    A bunch of nonsense on my TV
    Heaven on Earth is what I need
    But I feel I'm in hell every time I breathe
    Reporting live from the other side what you hear
    A bunch of nonsense all in my ear
    Rich man, poor man, we all gotta pay
    Cause freedom ain't free, especially 'round my way
