“”¦wake up, don’t join the Army
Kill your own peoples, but fear Illuminati’s
And they ain’t even real, or are they?
But you wouldn’t even know, because you partay
Too ***** much, if you start to doubt
They already in your mind, and comin’ out yo’ mouth”
Fiasco continues by saying: “It’s not a trick, ***** it’s a trap/ Survival of the fit, is what they aimin’ at.”

Wash them down with Diet soda!
Killin off your brain cells”
