Violent (1991)

They claim that I’m violent, just ’cause I refuse to be silent
These hypocrites are havin’ fits, ’cause I’m not buyin’ it
Defyin’ it, envious because I will rebel against
any oppressor, and this is known as self defense
I show no mercy, they claim that I’m the lunatic
But when the shit gets thick, I’m the one you go and get
Don’t look confused, the truth is so plain to see
Cause I’m the nigga that you sell-outs are ashamed to be
In every Jeep and every car, brothers stomp this
I’m never ignorant, getting goals accomplished
The underground railroad on an up rise
This time the truth’s gettin’ told, heard enough lies
I told ’em fight back, attack on society
If this is violence, then violent’s what I gotta be
If you investigate you’ll find out where it’s comin’ from
Look through our history, America’s the violent one
Unlock my brain, break the chains of your misery
This time the payback for evil sh** you did to me
They call me militant, racist ’cause I will resist
You wanna censor somethin’, motherfu**** censor this!
My words are weapons, and I’m steppin’ to the silent
Wakin’ up the masses, but you, claim that I’m violent
