High Crimes 08:55
Call him a liar call him a cheat Robber baron in a penthouse suite Call him a conman call him a thief Now call this criminal "commander in chief" Spoons made of silver toilet of gold Make his first millions when he's one day old No constitution crown himself king When you're a star they let you do anything He's gonna fight, fight, fight for what's white He's gonna make America hate again Refugee family, not quite white enough He say LOCKEMUP Walk across the desert with dreams of America He say LOCKEMUP Little brown baby cries for mama He say LOCKEMUP There’s a racist criminal in the oval office, what do YOU say? We say LOCKHIMUP You want your wall, you deserve it so How bout four stone walls with some bars on the window Ninety nine years breakin rocks all day Don't even sweat the rent cause we gon get Mexico to pay There'll be some very fine people sittin on both sides and a big framed portrait of the Central Park Five Three hots and a cot and plenty of time to get to know every deep dark corner of your pitch black soul He's gonna fight, fight, fight for what's white He's gonna make America hate again We gotta fight, fight, fight for what’s right Can’t let him make America hate again

The gig is up, the fix is in The books are cooked, and you know who wins It's the ones who've been keeping score They have it all and they still want more They own the land, the own the laws They got the weapons, they got the claws They can't be stopped from their crusade They just need you to be afraid CLASS WARFARE Boots are on the ground CLASS WARFARE You're under attack CLASS WARFARE Bombs are raining down, but they only call it CLASS WARFARE when you fight back They try to kill you with the air you breathe Cleaning up the mess, it just ain’t something they believe They poison you with the food you eat They won't think twice if it feeds their neverending need CLASS WARFARE Boots are on the ground CLASS WARFARE You're under attack CLASS WARFARE Bombs are raining down, but they only call it CLASS WARFARE when you fight back You must draw blood, you must feel pain You must kill to climb the human food chain You destroy to hold your wealth Until you die just like everybody else You kill the young and you feel no shame But I don't have to play your game We don't need guns, we don't need knives We just need to get organized
