Coup Detat

This country 
These people 
have pushed me to this edge 
The ledge was never that stable 
My people are beat in the head with labels 
I guess that's why my condition is unstable 
Our troops who fight this war 
are battling two foes 
Amerikkka and our brothers & sisters 
who are high off this matrix taking no dose 
They're conditioned to accept 
this condition, brainwashed by this system 
at Amerikkka's front gate it reads 
house negros wanted, free admission 
It's sickening
Yeah we say we tired
but all I see is marching and protesting 
Why abide by the laws & statues 
when they use that as a weapon against us 
We been diagnosed with a sick-nus 
What is it gonna take for us rise up & strap up
I can still hear amerikkka laughing at us 
Our pain our struggle its a joke to them 
they hold up signs March in solidarity 
claim they feel our pain 
but not enough to bang wit us militarily 
they sided wit the beast 
the only reason they're here 
is because this is a state of the police 
I actually hate that chant 
no justice, no peace 
I'm done talking, I've said enough 
anyone who believes violence isn't the answer 
obviously hasn't been patient enough 
The system doesn't hold them accountable 
So we will do what should've 
been done a long time ago 
Coup d'état 
Stand with us or become
the ones who get disposed
