    From "Proletariat Rock" dropping later this year #prcampaign

    Thinkin bout this bread chase got me red faced
    Got me all sorts of fucked up in my head space
    If you don't get it yet
    You must be privileged
    It don't affect you personally
    That's the difference
    Call me a hypocrite
    For how I'm livin, shit
    Knowin how the system is
    But still I'm a participant
    As white Americans
    Here is our inheritance
    Centuries of power
    From generations of terrorists
    Can't fix that with a conversation with a therapist
    Your petty personal problems can't be compared with this
    Military force opened up the doors
    For corporate interests to inch in and plot their course
    Divvy up the world and drain every resource
    Dump our plastic trash in their backyards in heavy portions
    Outta mind outta sight
    Outta line; we oughtta fight
    But everybody got a reason
    Why they ain't the problem, right?
    I wanna see the collapse of the middle class
    Maybe that'll get some of these people off they little asses
    Fuck a Republican
    Fuck a Democrat
    Both push a global capitalistic agenda. Fact.
    Which also happens to be antiblack
    Misogynistic and stacked against everybody but white psychopaths
    No amount of perceived peace love and unity
    Ends the oppression you can see
    And all its casual cruelty GO

    Cuz this is war that we're facin
    We can't support this immoral occupation
    We don't want the quid pro quo
    As the status enforced by the pig pork po
    The fattest cat gets fed but where the poor folk go
    Cuz this is war that we're facin
    We can't afford to ignore or be patient

    I'm a 21st century
    Descendant of peasantry
    In essence subsistin on a system of white supremacy influencing culture
    Based on a mythic nonscientific premise we
    Proved to be untrue but it's endlessly
    Subtle but sometimes it's blatant
    Pointed out in history but then denied evaded
    I wanna live to see it completely annihalated like a lion ate it
    I feel hopeless like I'm trapped in an iron maiden
    That's just how I relate it
    Then I get labeled contrarian
    For not bein a good American providin for the rich denyin the proletarian
    I query and question
    One of us will learn a lesson
    Viewpoint's invalid without the proper context in
    Vexin the most entitled, ignorant. Confession:
    I'm still both workin to be a little bit less than Show less
