POLITICALLY MINDED MUSIC

Recommended Posts

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

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.

Born Against

 

Mary and Child

 

Once again the battle field is your body and those who want control have laid

down their terms in black & white and red all over they keep the backstreet

butchers in business as advertised from a bullhorn and the all knowing man

has set up his make-believe graveyard with tiny white crosses for millions of

make-believe souls someday I'd like to see a cross set up for a real live

human being who bled to death to maintain the sanctity of mary mary & child

scream the bigots who couldn't care less about human life obey their self-

righteous lies while your sisters & daughters die all decisions are final your

body is forbidden.

 

WELL FED FUCK

Are you a good team player remember the boss is your best friend kill your

head. (repeat over and over)

No, they just seem to be contrived, bitchy and usually wack as shit nine times out of ten. There are of course exceptions, but that is my general take on things. Just seems to me that politics are pretty unique to the individual, so it is hard to find something that actually falls in line with what I think on things, blah blah blah.

 

And instrumentals are far from mindless, so let's leave it at that.

not to mention that they aren't actually doing anything about what they preach about. oh wait i forgot, they hand out leaflets that say free mumia on them at their shows that are wall to wall high school "punk" kids or college freshman who took their first political science class and are gonna be revolutionaries.

 

the last good politically minded album was some public enemy shit from the 80's. AND THAT'S ONLY BECAUSE THE SHOCKLEE BROS. HOOKED UP THE BEATS SO WELL.

:haha: :haha: :haha: :haha:

I can't believe noone said Crass. I mean they only INVENTED the anarchy sign. And the Dead Kennedy's are another no brainer. I would say more but I'm not near my music collection. Oh I don't know... random stuff. . . Oi Polloi .

The Proletariat . Naked Aggression .

Oh are we supposed to say things that aren't punk? Or whatever?
