Lyrics:

I’m livid when, the gimmicking wins/
From beginning to end, no gimmick; If I rap it, dude I live it then/
And you can’t do it, so ain’t no need for mimicking/
I’m not innocent. I’m on a mission, so let me finish it/
Matter of time before they summon the army in/
I’m probably on the FBI’s most wanted list/
I’m probably going to end up hung like an ornament/
I’m on a life mission to abolish all the government/

It’s dumb and I’m beyond pissed/
So we’re going to cut to the chase and get rid of metaphorical nonsense/
None of that eloquent bogusness/
I want you to know what it is sucka kid, y’all people keep voting in/

They rob, kill, and steal by the day/
I’d be a buffoon to trust the state/
You’re a tool and fool. Just keep taking the bait/
Making mistake, after mistake, after mistake/
Believe me, this ain’t the typical “Oh the government’s corrupt.”
Bro, that’s too easy/
You gotta take responsibility because you willingly
Give power to the state, when it’s the state that is your enemy

Stuck on stupid, you gotta be on it/
Cry about violence but they got a monopoly on it/
And you keep on buying in to what that man say/
Not knowing that every mandate, just expands the state

Hook:
Look around tell me what you see, because it’s..
Coming down, coming down. Are you listening?
Stop and look. This is what I mean:
It’s going down. It’s going down.

Look, it ain’t really hard to keep up
The politician just hypnotized you with free stuff
More and more statism, and y’all people just eat up
Yet crying and you’re protesting about how the police suck
Y’all don’t get no sympathy from me, because that’s the bed that you made
So you gotta lay
More inconsistent by the day, making mistake after mistake after mistake

At some time you gotta realize/
That the same crap that you despise might be your demise/
And I’d advise that you become more knowledgeable on subjects like economics that benefit/
Not memes on the internet
So when you’re mad and you get so combative, you gotta step back and take a stab at your voting habits/
The average man don’t understand that he don’t know;
You can be free or be a slave, but you can’t be both.

Hook

Craig Mabbitt: Open Your Eyes
The state you’re in, is a state of mind.
Freedom disguised, the state you’re in is a state of mind

So they’re wanting a savior?
Yet everyday, we go through voluntary exchanges/
They say “who’s going to build the roads?” without taxation/
So you give them a reason to confiscate my payments/
And that’s exactly what the state needs
for you to think you need them. But it’s fake, see?/
Maybe you’d see that they are what they swore to prevent/
A monopolized corporation, it’s called government/
