    so i've been listening to reflux all day. they're one of my favorites for intelligent politics in music (propagandhi a close second). anyways, i just wanted to get their words out and see some other politically minded music...

    i gotta type this because i can't find 'em online...(related note: this band is hugely conspiracy-theory based, illuminati, masons, etc..., amusing)

    MODERN DAY BABYLON

    turn over your dollar bill
    translate the words
    they have painted this picture.... painted it so well
    but the colors do run.
    they steal what they claim to protect.
    and when we shed light on the theft, we're the ones they try to catch

    "in our battle against those that detest our free and prosperous society, we cannot sacrifice any of the pillars our nation stands upon, namely respect for the constitution and the rule of law. we must demonstrate to the world that america is the bets example of what a solid constitution with properly enforced laws can bring to those who desire freedom and safety. if we become hypocrites about our own legal system, how can we sell it abroad or question legal systems different than our own?"

    forcefeeding this artificial pride, as our freedom is tossed to the side
    how can we liberate others, when we can't liberate ourselves?
    when they said that it was legal, they took it all away and when they too all of it away, freedom died that day.
    and we watch as they dry the blood on their hands with the flames of the constitution.
    all lies.
    they sold us illusions and promises.
    our amendments are dropping like flies.
    it is all part of the novus ordo seclorum.
    modern day babylon
    give us back our rights




    now you post words...

    dont know if this belongs here but it is political so w.e

    "Cause Of Death"

    [Talking]
    Immortal Technique
    Revolutionary Volume 2
    Yeah, broadcasting live from Harlem, New York
    Let the truth be known..

    [Verse 1]
    You better watch what the fuck flies outta ya mouth
    Or I'ma hijack a plane and fly it into your house
    Burn your apartment with your family tied to the couch
    And slit your throat, so when you scream, only blood comes out
    I doubt that there could ever be...a more wicked MC
    'Cuz AIDs infested child molesters aren't sicker than me
    I see the world for what it is, beyond the white and the black
    The way the government downplays historical facts
    'Cuz the United States sponsored the rise of the 3rd Reich
    Just like the CIA trained terrorists to the fight
    Build bombs and sneak box cutters onto a flight
    When I was a child, the Devil himself bought me a mic
    But I refused the offer, 'cuz God sent me to strike
    With skills unused like fallopian tubes on a dyke
    My words'll expose George Bush and Bin Laden
    As two separate parts of the same seven headed dragon
    And you can't fathom the truth, so you don't hear me
    You think illuminati's just a fuckin conspiracy theory?
    That's why Conservative racists are all runnin' shit
    And your phone is tapped by the Federal Government
    So I'm jammin' frequencies in ya brain when you speak to me
    Technique will rip a rapper to pieces indecently
    Pack weapons illegally, because I'm never hesitant
    Sniper scoping a commission controllin the president

    [Hook]
    Father, forgive them, for they don't know right from wrong
    The truth will set you free, written down in this song
    And the song has the Cause of Death written in code
    The Word of God brought to life, that'll save ya soul..

    Save ya soul motherfucker...save ya soul..

    Yeah, yeah, yeah

    [Verse 2]
    I hacked the Pentagon for self-incriminating evidence
    Of Republican manufactured white powder pestilence
    Marines Corps. flat (?) vest, with the guns and ammo
    Spittin' bars like a demon stuck inside a piano
    Turn a Sambo into a soldier with just one line
    Now here's the truth about the system that'll fuck up your mind
    They gave Al Queda 6 billion dollars in 1989 to 1992
    And now the last chapters of Revelations are coming true
    And I know a lot of people find it hard to swallow this
    Because subliminal bigotry makes you hate my politics
    But you act like America wouldn't destroy two buildings
    In a country that was sponsoring bombs dropped on our children
    I was watching the Towers, and though I wasn't the closest
    I saw them crumble to the Earth like they was full of explosives
    And they thought nobody noticed the news report that they did
    About the bombs planted on the George Washington bridge
    Four Non-Arabs arrested during the emergency
    And then it disappeared from the news permanently
    They dubbed a tape of Osama, and they said it was proof
    "Jealous of our freedom," I can't believe you bought that excuse
    Rockin a motherfucking flag don't make you a hero
    Word to Ground Zero
    The Devil crept into Heaven, God overslept on the 7th
    The New World Order was born on September 11

    [Hook]

    [Verse 3]
    And just so Conservatives don't take it to heart
    I don't think Bush did it, 'cuz he isn't that smart
    He's just a stupid puppet taking orders on his cell phone
    From the same people that sabotaged Senator Wellstone
    The military industry got it poppin' and lockin'
    Looking for a way to justify the Wolfowitz Doctrine
    And as a matter of fact, Rumsfeld, now that I think back
    Without 9/11, you couldn't have a war in Iraq
    Or a Defense budget of world conquest proportions
    Kill freedom of speech and revoke the right to abortions
    Tax cut extortion, a blessing to the wealthy and wicked
    But you still have to answer to the Armageddon you scripted
    And Dick Cheney, you fuckin leech, tell them your plans
    About building your pipelines through Afghanistan
    And how Israeli troops trained the Taliban in Pakistan
    You might have some house niggaz fooled, but I understand
    Colonialism is sponsored by corporations
    That's why Halliburton gets paid to rebuild nations
    Tell me the truth, I don't scare into paralysis
    I know the CIA saw Bin Laden on dialysis
    In '98 when he was Top Ten for the FBI
    Government ties is really why the Government lies
    Read it yourself instead of asking the Government why
    'Cuz then the Cause of Death will cause the propaganda to die..

    [Man talking]
    He is scheduled for 60 Minutes next. He is going on
    French, Italian, Japanese television. People
    everywhere are starting to listen to him. It's embarassing

    yeah immortal technique rocks, pretty much the only hip hop i listen to these days. other good heavily political songs of his are 'the 4th branch' 'peruvian cocaine' and 'the poverty of philosophy'

    sorry man, but that band is complete bullshit.
    their arguments are vague and petty, music is weak and bitten.
    not to mention all they do is bitch about the U.S. when in fact they are from canada and have every perk in the world up there.
    trust fund activists.

    i bought immortal technique's revolutionary volume one the other day, it's so sick, that song dance with the devil made my stomach turn. a well thought out repudiation of mindless thuggery in hip hop.

    dead prez have always been high up on my list.

    and mos def- mathematics.
