the third world war

i’m about to start a third world war

in this so called first world,

and yeah i know that sounds so absurd.

but i’m just a second

class citizen

and i don’t think that even

my countrymen

can

understand,

so then

countrywomen

and children

can

we stand

on a higher plane and

plan?

i’m gonna start a third world war,

not world war three.

see,

cause psychologically

what this country

be

doing to me-

it’s making me

go crazy.

we need

solutions

to help things

be.

and i’m not a puppet

for the state to bleed,

simply, to feed the need

of corporate greed.

i’m gonna start a third world war

for all displaced,

underrepresented, and

ignored

populations of the planet

that are sick and tired

and have had it.

that don’t just want

to be statistics

for the market,

or some kind of social project.

i never signed a social contract,

in fact,

my whole life

has been a request

for permission to protest,

and i regret to inform

that existence falls short

from hell and heaven.

but i’m just a second

class citizen

and i don’t think that even

my countrymen

can

understand,

so then

countrywomen

and children

can

we stand

on a higher plane and

plan?

so don’t be surprised when tomorrow

millions of bodies decide

that they’ve had enough,

that they want no more

to do with any of this.

and don’t be alarmed

when the lunatics

start pulling the alarms.

cause everyone’s screaming,

and just making noise-

trying to be heard and

acknowledged by a society

that’s in such a hurry

to make us all commodities.

cause how much are you worth?

and what can you produce?

we’re not human beings anymore,

but a percentage or a statistic

in the numbers rich folks collect

to decide if you’re worth the investment.

so they pass out tests

to see what you have learned,

and see what i have taught.

but they can never know

of what it is we share.

the love that they can’t measure,

but that doesn’t matter at all-

we’re not human beings anymore.

don’t be surprised

when we start raising hell,

so you can smell what we’ve gone through.

as we have waited for so many years

just to be a part of history,

but his story is filled with so many

inaccuracies, and who’s been doing all the dictating?

but i’m just a second

class citizen,

and i don’t think that even

my countrymen

can

understand,

so then

countrywomen

and children

can

we stand

on a higher plane and

plan?

i’m gonna start a third world war

for all of you all.

i’m gonna start a third world war

for all of you all.

i’m gonna start a third world war

for all of you all,

for all of you all,

for all of you all,

for all of you all,

for all of you all.

cause what can you produce?

and how much are you worth?
