This time the bullet cold rocked ya, yeah
A yellow ribbon instead of a swastika
Nothin' proper about ya propaganda
Fools follow rules when the set command ya

Said it was blue when ya blood was read, yeah
That's how you got a bullet blasted through ya head
Blasted through ya head, blasted through ya head

I give a shout out to the living dead
Who stood and watched as the feds cold centralized
So serene on the screen, he was mesmerized
Cellular phones soundin' a death tone
Corporations cold turn ya to stone before ya realize

They load the clip in omnicolour
Said they pack the 9, they fire it at prime time
The sleeping gas, every home was like Alcatraz
And mutha fuckas lost their minds

Just victims of the in-house drive-by
They say jump, you say, how high? Yeah
Just victims of the in-house drive-by
They say jump, you say, how high?

Just victims of the in-house drive-by
They say jump, you say, how high? Yeah
Just victims of the in-house drive-by
They say jump, you say, how high?

Checka, checka, check it out
They load the clip in omnicolour
Said they pack the 9, they fire it at prime time
The sleeping gas, every home was like Alcatraz
And mutha fuckas lost their minds

No escape from the mass mind rape
Play it again Jack and then rewind the tape
And then play it again and again and again
Until ya mind is locked in

Believin' all the lies that they're tellin' ya
Buyin' all the products that they're sellin' ya
They say jump and ya say, how high?
Ya brain-dead, ya got a fuckin' bullet in ya head

Just victims of the in-house drive-by
They say jump, you say, how high? Yeah
Just victims of the in-house drive-by
They say jump, you say, how high?

Uh

Ya standin' in line believin' the lies
Ya bowin' down to the flag, ya got a bullet in ya head
Am I standin' in line? Am I believin' the lies?
I'm bowin' down to the flag, I got a bullet in my head

Bullet in ya head, bullet in ya head
Bullet in ya head, bullet in ya head
A bullet in ya head, a bullet in ya head
A bullet in ya head, a bullet in ya head

A bullet in ya head, a bullet in ya head
A bullet in ya head, a bullet in ya head
A bullet in ya head, a bullet in ya head
A bullet in ya head, you gotta bullet in your fuckin' head

Yeah, yeah
