Couldn't Hide It From Me


Take your hand and spread the olive oil in shape of a cross
Brainwashing compilations of communities lost
Propaganda ran rampant through the streets
While gentrification just takes away a place to sleep
Oh the vagrant families
Gunshots taking lives like a thief
You wouldn't believe how many people here could die in a week
They couldn't hide it from me
Uncle Sam didn't care
Dogmatic appearance
Indoctrination everywhere
Televised lies and obloquy envelope the nation
In the hour of apocalypse
Society's changing
And I refused to stand here waiting on another to come
Like I missed the last bus in a hurry for prom
I think its time for us to open up our eyes
Bureaucracy's skewed
And hoping you don't see the lies

The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
