Lyrics

WHATZ GOING ON

Written By: GRIOT BABA BIKO

YOU PEOPLE SITTING HERE THINKING AMERICA CARES ABOUT YOU, AMERICAN DOESNT CARE ABOUT YOU, AMERICA CREATED AN ENTIRELY STAGED ACTIVITY ON SEPT 11 JUST TO BRING ABOUT NEW WORLD ORDER.
WHEN THE CREATOR WILLED THAT THE LINE OF LIGHT SHOULD PENETRATE BEYOND THE FIRST NIGHT AND PROCEED PAST THE VOID ON THE RIGHT, THE DEPARTURE FROM THE ABSOLUTE CREATED A FIGHT. THE STAGES BETWEEN THE SEED AND THE TREE OF GENERATION TRYING TO REACH A POINT OF PROGRESSIVE SEPARATION TO REACH THE POINT OF FULL MANIFESTATION OF THIS EVIL EXPLORATION. DEVINE EMANATIONS THE LAW OF INITIATIONS BECOMING REVELATION FOR THE COMING OF GOVERNMENT EXPERMENTATIONS.
THIS ONE THEY SAY IS FOR BABYLONS DAUGHTER THEY PUT HER UNDER THE NAME OF NEW WORLD ORDER, PUPPET PRESIDENTS WITH THEIR 33RD CONFER, GOT POWERS SO SWEET THEY DONT NEED MYRRH; AND WHAT I SPEAK IT REALLY IS NO LIE, THEY CREATED HIV AND EBOLI, IN THERE QUEST TO DESTROY EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN CREATED CASULTIES OF WAR WITH 9/11 WHAT IN THE WORLD IS GOING ON?
THE NEED FOR FOOD IS ON THE RISE, NOW THERE MANUFACTORING CHICKENS THAT GOT SIX THIGHS. CREATING BIGGER BETTER MORE POUND TO THE OUNCE LIES. NO ONE TRIES TO FIND LIES BETWEEN EYES NOT BETWEEN THIGHS I AM NOT AUTHORIZED TO CAPITALIZE ON YOUR ENTERPRIZE. LET ME EMPHASIS THE DEMISE OF SURPRISE WHEN SPIES TERRORIZE THE PEOPLE.WHAT I AM ASKING YOU IS TO PUT YOUR FEAR ASIDE, THROUGH KNOWLEDGE WE AVOID GENECIDE WHAT IN THE WORLD IS GOING ON.
