    « It’s the mystery of inequity
    Said it’s the misery of inequity
    Said it’s the history of inequity
    When it all, all falls down
    Telling you all, it all falls down

    Children eat your bread
    Little children eat your bread
    ‘Cuz it all, all falls down
    Telling you all, it all falls down

    Yo, ya’ll can’t handle the truth in a courtroom of lies
    Perjures the jurors, witness despised
    Crooked lawyers, false Indictments publicized
    It’s entertainment the arraignments, the subpoenas

    High profile gladiators in bloodthirsty arenas
    Enter the Dragon, black-robe crooked-balance
    Souls bought and sold and paroled for thirty talents
    Court reporter catch the surface on the paper

    File it in the system not acknowledged by the Maker
    Swearing by the Bible blatantly blasphemous
    Publicly perpetrating that, « In God We Trust »
    Cross-examined by a master manipulator

    The faster intimidator, receiving the judge’s favor
    Deceiving sabers doing injury to they neighbors
    For status, gratis, apparatus and legal waivers
    See the bailiff, representing security
    Holding the word of God soliciting perjury

    The prosecution, political prostitution
    The more money you pay the further away solution
    Legal actors, Babylon’s benefactors
    Masquerading as the agency for the clients

    Hypocritical giants, morally non-compliant
    Orally armed to do bodily harm
    Polluted, recruited and suited judicial charm
    And the defense isn’t making any sense
    Faking the confidence of escaping the consequence

    That a defendant is depending on the system
    Totally void of judgment purposely made to twist em’
    Emotional victim blackmailed by the henchmen
    Framed by intentions, inventions whereby they lynch men

    Enter the false witness slandering the accused
    Planting the seed openly showing he’s being used
    To discredit, edit, headed for the alleged
    Smearing the individual fearing the unsuspected

    Expert witness, the paid authority
    Made a priority to deceive the majority
    Of disinterested peers, dodging duty for years
    Hating the process waiting to be returning to their careers

    Do we expect the system made for the elect
    To possibly judge correct? Properly serve and protect?
    Materially corrupt, spiritually amuck
    Oblivious to the cause, prosperously bankrupt

    Blind leading the blind, guilty never defined
    Filthy as swine, a generation purin’ it’s own mind
    Legal extortion, blown out of proportion
    In vein deceit, the truth is obsolete

    Only two positions, victimizer or victim
    Both end up in destruction trusting this crooked system
    Mafia with diplomas keeping us in a coma
    Trying to own a piece of the « American Corona »

    The revolving door, insanity every floor
    Sky scraping, paper chasing, what are we working for?
    Empty traditions, reaching social positions
    Teaching ambition to support the family superstition?

    When the Son of Perdition is Commander in Chief
    The standard is Thief, brethren can we candidly speak?
    Woe to the men, trusted in the chariots dem’
    Leaning on horses, they run their intellectual sources

    Counterfeit wisdom creating the illusion of freedom
    Confusion consumes them
    Every word they speak it turns them out really white
    Internally they absent of light

    Trapped in the night and bonded to the Cain of the night
    Under the curse, evil men waxing more worse
    Faxing the first, angelic being cast to the earth
    It’s time for rebirth, burnin’ up the branch and the root
    The empty pursuits of every tree bearing the wrong fruit

    Turning me ill, let him who stole, no longer steal
    Oh, it’s real, surrender for Jehovah is real
    How long will you sleep
    Troubled by the thoughts that you keep, the idols you heap
    ‘Causing the destruction you reap

    Judgment has come, find it and return to the One
    Abandon the flesh, self-interest, Broadway to death
    Pride and the greed, hide and subdividing the seed
    The knowledge of good and evil is what caused us to lie

    Caused us to die, let your emotions be crucified
    Renounce all your thoughts
    Repent and let your mind be re-taught
    You’ll find what you sought was based on the deception you bought
    A perception of naught, where the majority remains caught

    Loving a lie, not realizing in Adam, all die
    Loving a lie, not realizing in Adam, all die
    Loving a lie, not realizing in Adam, all die
    Loving a lie, not realizing in Adam, all die

    It’s the mystery of Inequity
    Say it’s the history of Inequity
    Say it’s the misery of Inequity
    When it all, all falls down
    I’m telling you all, it all falls down »
