Gil Scott-Heron

Question,

Did you ever realize who the biggest kingpin is?

They say real eyes realize real lies

Well the Revolution will not be televised

So, I was sent to open eyes

It doesn’t matter how much the government and media trys to wash things with soap, dope is dope

One of their jobs is to cut the hope and serve the dope

Yes, it sounds remote

But the Revolution will not be televised

So, look past the lies

Corrupt system but nobody takes note

Instead they sugar coat and turn us against each other

Only the snakes and roaches will stay afloat

You keep getting side tracked with Trumps diversions and ass eyes

Stay Woke!

Let your real eyes realize real lies

Because, the Revolution will not be televised,

The Revolution will not be televised,

The Revolution will not be televised!

Open your eyes the Revolution is now

The Revolution is Live!!!
