David Banner – Evil Knevil Lyrics

[Verse]
They gave us Obama like
It was gonna stop the fight1
Like it was gonna stop the cause2
Folks still scraping3
The IRS is coming so I’m back on these beats4
Barack pushed hope
Reagan pushed dope5
Clinton pushed something down a young gal’s throat6
Yah, and since we talking about throats
White folks, what you know about ropes?7
Yah, what you know about trees
And men swinging from them that look like me?8
How you say that don’t affect us?
Tuskegee, how you let them infect us?9
It’s fear of the black semen
Putting sage on a page to eradicate these demons10
This for Tulsa, Oklahoma, this for Rosewood
This for Philly when the cops bombed the whole hood11
This for Harlem when the pigs stop and frisk12
All my folks from the Congo tell Belgium suck a, suck a13
Boy wonder? Nope, meant Dick Grayson
I’m essential like the Moors were to the Masons
The kush (AFRICA), the black push
Aborigines I love you, take back the bush14
Oh, we are back on presidents
George was so irrelevant15
But he did send the country to hell
And a lot of black folks to jail16
If we are blind, that’s fine, I’ll spit it in braille
Drop an F-bomb in cursive, put that whore in the mail17
P.O.s (POST OFFICES) they are about to shut down
I was on my way to heaven then I stopped and turned around
The government, yes, it did shut down
I was on my way to heaven but I stopped and turned around for my people18
I’ll try to never leave you
This is a war against evil19
Knievil

[Outro: Ernestine Johnson]
Lifetime of pain
You can’t wash away these stains
You can’t soak me in a tub full of bleach
And brighten the shadows you left on my past20
Or whiten those dark stones you placed on my path
Where is the love?21
Mentally institutionalized by a nation plotting our demise
Sicknesses is created for our numbers to be cut22
Love is like you’re staring at us with your eyes wide shut
Love? What love? Where are you?23
