Culture of Fear Lyrics

Seems to me like they want us to be afraid man

Or maybe we just like being afraid

Maybe we just so used to it at this point that it's just a part of us

Part of our culture

Security alert on orange

It's been on orange since '01 G

I mean what's up man

Can't a brother get yellow man

Just for like two months or something

God damn


Sick o' that

Mic check

The groove is dead so I'm a rhyme like a lunatic

I do this sh*t with an unassuming wit

The corporation conjured up the bass and the tempo

My name is Liff that's the intro now let's go

The flow of life throwing strife into the mix

The big dark condition and the word is sick

The powers that be

A power in me

To speak a cause

Stress and strife that I see every day

And more to speak upon

Culture of fear

It's up in your ear

They're telling us terrorists about to strike

May be tonight


Let me just back up slowly

With critical analysis of those who control me

It used to be we just had a screen in the crib

On the TV

But now we carry screens when we leave see

Laptops smart phones now we're never alone

A new affliction I call it media dome

But on the road famine is the programming

You want to watch a favorite show because it's so slamming

Hold hands and let's gaze into the beautiful glare

While we're here so immersed in this culture of fear


We fear the IRS fear the INS

Fear God

I'm more afraid of the planet than the terror squad

Weapons overseas

Mastercard and visa want to buy me the greed

They deceive

The enemy is in the fine print

They assassinate sally

With no sense of the selling

Represent an element ahead


A sentiment that you feel on the road for real

The deal starts with a spark concludes with a hand shake

Physical to alter the subliminal landscape

Relief thinking I can really trust that guy

To be honest could have should have really punched that guy

Now it's operation shank a banker

Thank you for the loan

See you when you come to repossess my home

Alone at night sweating with visions of Armageddon

I never seen the threat

Yet I feel threatened

Parts of our society designed to smear

Freedom don't succumb to this culture of fear


Fear fear fear

Don't succumb to this culture of fear

Fear fear fear


Don't succumb to this culture of fear
