about

One of the best songs about racism that you will ever hear. so I have heard.

lyrics

I stole your library card
I stole your library card
this is your liberry card(ah ha)
Look what I'm holding its Golden

I stole your library card (look at what I'm holding its golden you know now that I stole it)
I stole your library card
It's your liberry card
I I told you I stole it

I bet the air is thin up there
was my life taken or was it given well
pain and drugs left me devastated

no education degradates me
my president is black but my neighborhood is segregated (boooooooooo!!!)
whites wed denial down the aisle of deceit
the poor for ever holds their piece until their souls released
now thats a lot grease covering peace
when Deniece keeps a fleece and ski coat from greece
i was at the flea market sipping some tea
with my brothers the Enforcer and Que the MC
I'll seek the flame and that change you can keep it
what's (cents,sense) when the presence of the pretense is frequently indecent

I'm not picking up the phone (yeah)
Because I'm out shopping for a home
'Cause I'm a bum I'm a man with no household
I just got a cardboard box and
I'm not picking up the phone because I'm out shopping for a home
I spend most my time alone 'cause I'm a bum
I'm a man with no household

Recently I've been to the precinct please bring me
my slippers What should I wear TO dinner
also for my interviews can I wear that ugly suit
what did you put in this food, I'm lucky I'm not darker
you couldn't get much harsher if I were a telemarketer
I'm on the drums like Marvin Gaye and Karen Carpenter
if short hair is the sign of a prisoner
I'mma close the blinds when/while my mind is taking visitors
time and the blood on my hands produce colors to die for
now I'm rich enough to protest so
if my mistakes make experience the best play
then place it on my resume and the set the date
I could be an astronaut, a fireman, a drug store
a person that gives hugs more maybe even plug four
my paradise is a pair a dice and a scarred whore, before
I used to pour on to this hard cardboard but now I'm homeless

I'm not picking up the phone
Because I'm out shopping for a home
'Cause I'm a bum I'm a man with no household
I just got a cardboard box and
I'm not picking up the phone because I'm out shopping for a home
I spend most my time alone 'cause I'm a bum
I'm a man with no household
BREAK TIME

WHAT I NEED WITH PROPERTY, WHEN I GOT ALL THIS SKIN
I CAN SLEEP ON/OFF, or UNDER THIS HERE BRIDGE

i'm not picking up the phone, i'm not picking up for you, i'm not picking up the phone,
i'm not picking up the home I'm not sticking up for you

we the great great great Grand children of slaves
white mans property you best behave
born in the land of the raped and the used
I guess this makes me nameless too
