I left Edmonton where ghetto black boys caught cases / but back then still hung out with pill popping pill shotting ravers / til I watched middle class white boys catch cases,/ yes there are ghetto white boys too, I’m middle class n black, I’m not racist./ Just stated the facts, face it, that’s the case it’s / those boys who kept fear and loathing in Las Vegas / in silver flight cases. Dodging bats, police dogs / and 9 to 5 wages, cos they don’t like wakin, / if they see 9 AM… it’s most likely they’ve been / out all night ravin. I doubt that I’d blame them. / I probably provided soundtracks for countless 5 to 9 blazin / And like twelve volt Joe be 60 n still free party ravin.
There’s no independent nature to class or even race yeah.
But if you’re darker they say they’ll more likely incarcerate yer,
that’s not under debate but we’re here with more than blind faith
That we can shine love and wisdom over blind hate…
