Yeah, now uh

Turn off your radio

Turn up your stereo

Northwest rock, rock on, what's the scenario?

Four years ago two students skipped a class, went and crafted an album, some called it a classic, but

We've grown past, it was good while it lasted

Now it's time to put the education into practice

Beats, rhymes, rice be the breakfast of champions

We hold the whole town down together with the plan to hold the mic with compassion like Yuri did Malcolm

Traveled down the coast since we dropped the last album

That plus one is how long we've been war-torn

It's the return of the hard-knock and hardcore

From hard rock to hip-hop

The migration of flocks who once mocked what we ride for

It's psy-war, from sidewalks to billboards and stores telling all poor people that the world is yours

But this money is ours, you can get a little back

You start putting in hours, you can widen the gap

But you can see it in the towers standing next to the squatters who be wandering the city in search of a job offer

The first generation in the U.S. of A.

To get paid less wage then the ones who came

Before the wicked waged war in the dessert terrain

24 short bars couldn't measure the pain, so now I

Greet the neighbor daily

He's on his porch, smoking

Overhead, thunderclouds move in slow motion

Came across an ocean in hope of some better days

Expatriated citizens of third-world decay

Where children translate for their parents sake in a landscape where the working class can't escape

These languages twisted

Tongues get unraveled

Can't understand each other in this modern day babel

Now we trying to get a piece of what the city broke down

Barely claiming families but quick to claim the town

Recognize it's serious but ain't afraid to clown

Trained for confrontation there's no other way around

These sacred ground desecrators

They tried to decimate us

They hit the ballot like the mayor's gonna save us and

It pains me to say this but pain is what made this

It's gonna take more than just rain to change this

Just some rain to change this...
