Flatbush Zombies - Best American Lyrics




[Erick Arc Elliott:]
Hey, I'm just doing everything that I can (I can)
Never been jealous of the white man
Black skin, I'm not better, I'm just different
He ain't never sold drugs, this is all a false image, hey

Who's the best American? Is it you?
And I say never love again, but I do
Whole planet under sieze boy, that's how we do
And they know we keep a blind eye to hide the truth
Who's the best American? Is it you?
And I say never love again, but I do
Whole planet under seize nigga, that's how we do
And you know we keep a blind eye to hide the truth

Pay a load of tax, take it out your check
Boy, I know you know this debt
Til you hesitate and right before you purchase that
New chain, new fame, original black
We are well-anointed with the knowledge of the slaves
Land of the free, yeah, home of the brave
Hard to close my eyes at night, I'm dreamin' of the day
Dark terrors in the ferry, turn the world grey
Somehow we gotta pray, it ain't 'bout religious praise
This is real shit, nigga this is not a phase
Born afflicted, misinformed children on the way
Eyes teary, blind feary, cryin' to be saved
Find another way, while escapin', a rude awakenin'
While we caged in, abomination
Clean water for the cavemen, salutations
Signin' off with a molotov, throwing salt
While we marchin' off for the common cause

Who's the best American? Is it you?
And I say never love again, but I do
Whole planet under seize boy, that's how we do
And they know we keep a blind eye to hide the truth
Who's the best American? Is it you?
And I say never love again, but I do
Whole planet under seize nigga, that's how we do
And they know we keep a blind eye to hide the truth

[Zombie Juice:]
This a new world, artificial
Second brain in my pocket, tell me how that live through
Y'all don't hear me
Unless I talk about my skin tone, and what comes with it
If you live it then you stand strong, that's how we do it
Ain't no father figure, live n' learn
Gotta get the money little nigga making earns
Another day, another cop killed an honest man
Black skin, young-aged, probably had a kid, it never ends
They say government control the weather
How we bustin' all these guns but we can't get together
Start a, and make that bread together
Are they crooks, are they pedophiles or politicians
Plottin' FDA poisonin' our children now
That's how we living, throwing niggas in prison
Unlivable conditions, repeat offender
Brown, broke
That's the agenda, never surrender
Keep your eyes wide shut, nicca

[Erick Arc Elliott:]
Who's the best American? Is it you?
And I say never love again, but I do
Whole planet under seize boy, that's how we do
And they know we keep a blind eye to hide the truth
Who's the best American? Is it you?
And I say never love again, but I do
Whole planet under seize nigga, that's how we do
And you know we keep a blind eye to hide the truth

[Meechy Darko:]
Say "God bless America"
To the red, white, blue noose on my neck, wylin' for respect
Guess freedom ain't free, huh?
Really wanna see a difference, kill some politicians
Red men get executed and forgotten
Black men spent 200 years pickin' cotton
Now they poison our minds and put shackles on our conscious
But they will never get mine, never get mine, dawg I promise
Black American Psycho, ya like Tae-Bo, ya might just get
American ream be double up the money with no minusin'
Hate is a disease with no paradise they can't find that shit
Honestly this shit here's wave make climate shatter thermometers
Promise my mama, I see mañana, no matter what it is
Coppers be killin' niggas for nada, that shit gotta end
You probably think slavery's abolished homie they got your brain
Never forget what they did to the man with the moccasin

[Erick Arc Elliott:]
Who's the best American? Is it you?
And I say never love again, but I do
Whole planet under seize boy, that's how we do
And they know we keep a blind eye to hide the truth
Who's the best American? Is it you?
And I say never love again, but I do
Whole planet under seize nigga, that's how we do
And you know we keep a blind eye to hide the truth

"We are all the problem, when we don't make sure our dollars stay in our communities for more than six hours. We are all the problem when we don't make sure that our children are safe going to the public school, to prison pipeline. We are all the problem when we don't hold school, our children, after school. We are all the problem when we lay down and expect somebody else to do the work for us. We are all the problem when we don't stand up to oppression. We are all the problem if we go back into slavery. That makes us all the problem"

  26. Steffen Conrad

    3:25 - 3:56 dont ignore the reality, 95% of the worlds population are slaves with benefits: "panem et circenses" - juvenal, roman poet.

  27. Micaela Adwell

    I miss when you kept the words short and clever, or short yet telling a whole story.
    Fly Away is literally a short story in a paragraph. One that makes you go "Ohhhh!" after realising what it's about. Gramz chorus is a prime example of clever wording. Not a short story, but a statement constructed rather clever. Not to mention (gramz chorus) still gives me chills even after overplaying it long ago.
    More with the beats, less with the words.

    This song isn't the same Flatbush Zombie I'm a fan of.

  28. Arizona Guerrilla

    The elete will try to get rid of these conscious Rappers. Especially for talkimg about the government and weather control. STOP SPRAYING SHIT IN THE SKY!!!

  29. Imad H
