Dead Prez – Propaganda lyrics

Intro: (news snippets)
"let me now turn, to our program for the future..."
"the economy right now, is extremely supportive of the president and his
Policies"
"fbi scientists have found chemical traces, consistent with a bomb or a
Missle, on a piece of wreckage... "
"police using clubs and tear gas against demonstrators..."
"they called me a mother -(bleeped out)-ing so-and-so... And a white
Facist... Like they said, 'you're getting some of your own medicine'... "

Singing:
Telling lies, to our children
Telling lies, to our children
Telling lies, to our babies
Only truth, can take us...

Verse 1:
You can't fool all the people all of the time
But if you fool the right ones, then the rest will fall behind
Tell me who's got control of your mind? Your world view?
Is it the news or the movie you're taking your girl to? (uh)
Know what I'm sayin cause uncle sam got a plan
If you examine what they tellin us then you will understand
What they plantin in the seeds of the next generation
Feeding our children miseducation
No one knows if there's ufo's or any life on mars
Or what they do when they up in the stars
Because I don't believe a word of what the president said
He filling our head with lies got us hypnotised
When he be speaking in cold words about crime and poverty
Drugs, welfare, prisons, guns and robbery
It really means us, there's no excuse for the slander
But what's good for the goose, is still good for the gander
See...

Chorus:
I don't believe bob marley died from cancer
31 years ago I woulda been a panther
They killed huey cause they knew he had the answer
The views that you see in the news is propaganda

Singing:
Telling lies, to our children
Telling lies, to our children
Telling lies, to our babies
Only truth, can take us...

Verse 2:
I don't want no computer chip in my arm
I don't wanna die by a nuclear bomb
I say we all rush the pentagon, pull out guns
And grab the intercom, my first word's will be I believe
Man made god, outta ignorance and fear
If God made man, then why the hell would he put us here?
I thought he's supposed to be the all loving
The same God who let hitler put the jews in the oven
We don't fall for the regular shit, they try to feed us
All this half-ass leadership, flippin position
They turn politcian and shut the hell up and follow tradition
For your tv screen, is telling lies to your vision
Every channel got some brainwashed cop shit to watch
Running up in niggas cribs claiming that they heard shots
It's a plot, but busta can you tell me who's greedier?
Big corporations, the pigs or the media?
Sign of the times, terrorism on the rise
Commercial airplanes, falling out the sky like flies
Make me wonder what secrets went down with bob brown [?]
Who burnt churches to the ground with no evidence found?
It's not coincidence, it's been too many studied incidents
It coulda been the klan who put that bomb at the olympics
But it probably was the fbi, deep at the call
'cause if they make us all panic then they can start martial law

Chorus:
I don't believe bob marley died from cancer
31 years ago I woulda been a panther
They killed huey cause they knew he had the answer
The views that you see in the news is propaganda

I don't believe bob marley died from cancer
31 years ago I woulda been a panther
They killed huey cause they knew he had the answer
The views that you see in the news is muthafuckin propaganda

Singing:
Police is telling lies fooling millions
What are they teaching our kids in these school buildings?
Televised, enterprised in all the killing
Controlling our lives, this ain't living
No this ain't living

Chant:
Fbi, cia
Atf, kkk
Irs, tnt
Cbs, nbc

Fbi, cia
Atf, kkk
Irs, tnt
Cbs, nbc

Singing:
Telling lies, to our children
Telling lies, to our children
Telling lies, to our babies
Only truth, can take us...

News snippet:
"uh, we view each other uh, with uh, a great love and a great understanding
And that we
Try to expand this to the general, uh, black population and also people,
Oppressed people all over the world, and, I think that uh, we differ from
Uhmm... Uh, some other groups simply because we understand the system better
Than uh, most uh, groups understand the system, and uh, with this
Realisation, uh, we attempt to form a strong political base based in the
Community with the only strength that we have and that's the strength of uh,
A potentially destructive force if we don't get freedom. "
