Do I purge? do I binge? Do I take this drug from the syringe?
while knocking every door off the hinge
Do I renounce my culture, the pants and the tims?
absorb negativity, when things are looking grim?
every man is responsible, for their own sins
disrespecting family, plus killing the kin
people fear the devil, fear satan, fear the Jinn
looking for a heaven, but the chances are slim
rotating atoms, with a faster spin
spark brain cells with light, but the lights are dim
half empty glass, philosophy is grim
every demon and evil, is added to my dark skin
to my lips, to my curly hair, to my four limbs
Europe created 'voodoo' dolls, sticking me with pins
making me a puppet, sambo, harlequin
exercise the mind, I visit the mental gym
reading books, analyze law, wherever thoughts swim!
