You try to get success directly
But there is one to destroy us
Sometimes the way is out of ?
Perhaps you may get ignorant

Do I gotta get ignant and show my pigment on the job?
slap the darkest part of my hands across jaws?
these days and times with jobs hard to find
you gotta work a salt mine or work an assault nine
most folks barely staying afloat through proper channels
and think the rich sit with black candles and slaughter mammals
and run the globe through mind control and designer sandles
but life's a skinny bitch it's a struggle to get a handle
I'm about to just break bad like Malcolm's dad
be Meth Boy-R-Dee with a lab and a yellow cab
so I can get the white picket fence and yellow lab
that American dream makes me wake up and scream
it consists of old money buying shiny new things
that I'ma about to break as I'm creating a scene
you can use as an anthem for Kanye's tantrums
cause I'm about a thumb and a finger away from snapping

Get ignorant
Get ignorant
Sometimes the way is out of ?
Perhaps you may get ignorant

I'm early everyday, never took a vacation
through mandatory overtime I always stayed patient
through all the pettie dramas i'm calmer than a sloth
but THE shit don't change like if Obama would've lost
I done worked my ass off for bout 20 leven years
and I'm usually far from anything that Heaven fears
but I'm feelin off kilter, nah I ain't bout to kill ya
but I am about to loosen up the filter
here's you...jerkin' off to Halle Berry on the shitter
then firing a nigga cause he checkin' on his twitter
you mad 'cause ain't nobody taggin you in pictures?
well here's a good one of you taggin ya wife's sister
like that! I've been knowin' ways to fight back
Vimeo of you sayin you don't like blacks
clearly though, full HD and in stereo
ya network's got holes my dude, cheerio!

Get ignorant
Get ignorant

Success is just a thought, yet it can push us to the edge
put in our heads at an early age like the pledge
give our allegiance, while you're at it give ya souls
won't tell ya till ya grown that all that glitters ain't gold
but we love to watch em race, love to watch em chase dreams
so dirty ain't a cycle that could make clean
got the athletes juicin, singers gettin naked
the rappers spendin' all they money before they even make it
actors scared to age shootin acid in they faces
slaves to the ratings every show is more tasteless
faithless as angels cuttin' wings from they scapula
to trade it all in and be Dracula?

Genocide in east Africa, but you watchin Battlestar Galactica
Fillin up the data in the back of your digital camera
Taking glamorous
Shots of your mammaries
Surrounded by Vanity Fair magazine
And stuffed animals, in a house your parents paid for
Built by hand on land people slaved for
Get ignorant, stay ignorant in fact get belligerent
If you feel my sentiment attack
Keep kicking and screaming for your sense of entitlement
Flip me off with the same hand you hold the Bible with
All that Botox, every cream, every vitamin
Can't cover up the ignorance thats inside of you
I wouldn't lie to you, it can't cover up the ignorance thats inside of you
