Come with it now
Come with it now

The microphone explodes, shattering the molds
Ya either drop tha hits like de la O or get the fuck off the commode
With the sure shot, sure to make the bodies drop
Drop and don't copy yo, don't call this a co-opt
Terror rains drenchin', quenchin' the thirst of the power drones
That five sided fist-a-gon
The rotten sore on the face of mother earth gets bigger
Tha triggers cold empty your purse

They rally round the family
With a pocket full of shells
[X4]

Weapons not food, not homes, not shoes
Not need, just feed the war cannibal animal
I walk the corner to the rubble that used to be a library
Line up to the mind cemetary, now
What we don't know keeps the contracts alive an movin'
They don't gotta burn tha books they just remove 'em
While arms warehouses fill as quick as the cells
Rally round tha family, pocket full of shells

Rally round the family
With a pocket full of shells

They rally round the family
With a pocket full of shells
[X3]

Bulls on parade

Come with it now
Come with it now

Bulls on parade
Bulls on parade
Bulls on parade
Bulls on parade
Bulls on parade

    It's about capitalism and commercialism and how it affects society bh making them less capable of thinking for themselves. Its also about how republicans tried to sell the war in iraq to americans and make us believe it was really justified.

    Capitalism leads to ignorance. This ignorance keeps us in check with violence. Keeping the masses uneducated (they don't gotta burn the books, they just remove them) keeps them controlled and ignorant. Media not reporting all the details in events leads to injustifiable war on other countries, contracts with weapons makers renewed and sought. Politicians work for these weapons makers, they've got the pockets full of shells. Why would we try to maintain the lives in another country with their needs, we can just wipe them out.

    Big industry "drones" feeding on families on which they trick for thier own purposes whether it be for war or just to hold them as slaves.. In other words uncle sam or the bull taking advantage of the common folk
