got to keep this scope for real when I'm out making the deal
switch blade in the sand looking at what Obama has done
have we become another hip hop Republican ?
let's look to the sun so I said it before your tripping how you want to feel
Trump in his ivory tower do you think he cares ?
No the worse for wear he's gotta cheap slogan, "Drain the swamp".
the mystery is over as we grow a little older and our nation grows a bit colder
North Korea cute guy in a fat suit glued to the seat that squeaks
have to laugh when I here him speak lest i repeat
the message is getting clearer something is drawing nearer
going to take you higher blown up in its fullest desire
it all comes down to the wire were going to start a big fire
got Eminem on a free style rap thingy
come and join his resistance in all circumstance to take part in the dance
there is the talk of a great wall stand more then ten feet tall coming out of a mouth of a know it all
should i push it to the curb as if you haven't already heard
folks are going to have to watch where O.J. goes maybe back to Vegas
Puerto Rico still without power have to come together even if the weather is bad
faces, traces & spaces
reading the news like its on Hill Street Blues we all have to pay our dues
like poets to poetry all of life is a mystery a challenge to be set free
something inside of me is blinded from reality
this is are destiny the willingness to achieve yet you may not agree
got to give props where props is due
if Trump is our president the where is Trump's president ?
Were in the rap game yet who am I to blame yet we started this flame
Seek for better days amidst the grave gotta be brave
These are the days when anything goes yet its coming down to the wire
Going to take you higher
