WHAT YOU CRYIN FOR – Anku

Crime…
The problem it is not!…
The Symptom…it is…
Violence…
The tool of the verbally handicapped!…
The problem it is not!…
The Symptom…it is…
Poverty…
The rule of the mentally defeated!
The problem it is not!…
The Symptom…it is…
Blame…
The tool of the ones that rule…
The problem it is not!…
The Symptom…it is…

We don’t learn in schools…
We all learn from fools
That live in a box
That cable concocts…
Our vision is lied to
(Get Help)
I tried to…
But how do we listen
When we can’t hear the vision?
I try to make my mind
But you hand me my decision…
So why blame the crime
When the crime in us all?
‘Cause We All Criminals, Crime In All, This Is Yall, And It’s Me!
And WE are the symptom
Of years of neglect
No respect
Kept In cheques
That we pay to our bills…
This is what is instilled
From the time of our birth
From the time we reach earth
That is all filled with the Symptoms

The Crime
The Violence
The Poverty
The Blame
There’s more I could name
But they really all the same…
It’s really jus a shame
That the symptoms seem treated…
The problems never cured…
The symptoms now deleted…
The problems all ignored…
So what you cryin for?
