Kublai Khan - True Fear Lyrics




There's no justice. Am I crazy?
To think that all this is crazy?
Another march for a nation that's hurting
Pain pushed back like the force you're exerting
There's nothing to say
When people are killed daily
By cops with a hard on for violence
Mad cause I'm yelling, I'm mad cause you're silent

Stay calm
Don't breathe or you might get beat to fucking shit
Right hand on his right hip
Thumb resting on the pistol grip
Do you even speak English?
Are your tattoos gang affiliated?
No I just wanna get home
Searched my shit. Let me go
(And to think I had it easy)

So I'll tell you
If you ask me
If I have doubts
Trusting the police

Look around you
Unarmed men shot in cold blood
While a kid with a dime bag
Serves more time than a rapist
What kind of lie are we living
(What kind of lie are we living)
When so few are protecting and serving

People protesting
Against the ones protecting
It's a fucking red flag
It's a sign of the struggles they've had

Fuck those who kill

Every time I see an officer behind me
I can't help but view them as an enemy
True fear systematically
Time's up, you fucking cowards

  6. Kyle

    Great song. But lyrics are shit. fuck outta here with that sjw shit. Cops ain't bad. don't be a fucking degenerate! Fuck the police! So edgy!! LMAO!!

  7. shoe mender

    All cops do is collect revenue for the state. We need to change our whole concept of policing society. Mostly we don't need anything but self autonomy. They're working class too but class traitors. I'm tired of the upper class taking my money and charging me for every single little fucking thing; the cops enforce it.

    gunluvr20

    If your view on cops is related to “money for the state”, or traffic enforcement then your just another typical civilian sheep that thinks that’s all police do. Traffic is less than 12% or all policing in America. That’s a direct statistic published by police one magazine from UCR reporting. Go do a ride along and get back with me when you realize your wrong.

    WAKANDA lie are we live in?

  17. Kamehamedouken

    I still believe in the original intention of law enforcement protecting us and keeping order, but also acknowledge that there are bad cops that give these lyrics a legitimate and justified grievance. Yes it is possible to acknowledge both. Love these Hardcore lyrics and how real they are. Hardcore 4 life 💪

    Mike

    Качевый Тяжёляк крышу сносит!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  28. Dave Johnson

    This song makes me want to kick God in the fucking nuts.

  29. Phillip Clark

    Also, if you all hate the police so much, defend yourselves. Look after your own skin. Nobody has the right to tell you how to live, nobody has the right to rule over you. You're your own ruler. Abolish government.

  30. Phillip Clark

    Coming from an AnCap/Individualist anarchist, this is why government should be overthrown. no rulers, no oppressors, nobody to infringe your rights, just you living how you want without anybody infringing on your rights to life, liberty, and your pursuit of happiness. (Inb4 posers comment on how I'm a nazi because my anarchist views aren't far left)

  31. Trevor Philips

    If this song doesn’t light a fire in you / strike lightning through your veins... we’ve got a problem

  34. hatred is power

    so glad i heard these guys on the jasta podcast hooked ever since

  35. d0ngstin

    Really strong message about how fucked up our country is, I love this song

  36. Ása-Þórr

    I understand why some don't like this, because it demonizes cops, no matter who it is. That generalization doesn't sit well. That's like cops coming out and saying every black person is a thieving thug, all Mexicans are MS-13, etc. When you have a line that's says you every cop as an enemy, what do you expect? Especially when innocent cops are being killed, because some racist cop killed a person on the other side of the country... explain that thought process. That's what people don't like about it. I feel threatened walking around downtown Richmond, VA because I've had guns pulled on me for "being in the wrong neighborhood". Where are those songs? I like this band and their music, but people shouldn't wonder why this message doesn't sit well. Hate is hate, no matter the person. You tell people not to hate a certain group, while hating. Call cops cowards, while 72 people died over the weekend in Chicago due to civilians killing others... silence. Cowards are those who choose to ignore one group, and not the other.

  37. febrianto joko

    so five minutes alone riff with modern style💞💞🤘🤘

  38. Mick Mauer

    THIS SHIT IS SO PISSED FUCK YES

  39. Dolorious The Glorious

    Just wanted some info on the Mongol warlord

  40. Austin Hazlewood

    Saw them play this song live with 4 cops protecting the stage they were playing on..

    gunluvr20

    Orb Plant There’s a bigger picture to his comment. Hopefully you get it.

    AVXVA

    Orb Plant who would Matt call if someone broke into his home? Or physically assaulted him? The police. They would do there best to help him regardless of his Whiney lyrics.

    Cameron Owens

    @AVXVA You missed the entire point of the song. Matt isn't screaming about how he hates cops or that he wouldn't call them. He's screaming about how they don't do their job correctly and he wants it to change. He's screaming about how if he or another black man may call the cops for a break-in, and then end up getting arrested because the cops could assume they were the criminal (which actually has happened btw).

    Tiny Supreme

    @Cameron Owens Can you cite an instance where cops detained a black homeowner? I'm having a hard time finding one.

    Cameron Owens

    @Tiny Supreme Yep! Happened right here in my own state!

  43. NiqueyLovesIt

    if you "don't agree with the message" why are you here lmao you can't consciously support punk or hardcore without having an anti establishment, anti racist mindset. yall would probably cry if you went to a show and had to listen to the politics behind the music. must be nice coming from privilege and being able to ignore the kind of shit talked about in these songs

    NiqueyLovesIt

    @Read My Profile Picture To Cure Your Blindness you can't be racist and consciously support music that's anti racism bro that's a Snapple fact

    Read My Profile Picture To Cure Your Blindness

    @NiqueyLovesIt You can. And I don't know if you're calling me a racist, but I hope you aren't. You can indeed support music that you don't agree with. I listen to many artists who have different political views, religious views, etc, but I enjoy it because it's good music. I like MUSIC. Saying that you can't enjoy music if you don't agree with it is very small minded. If it sounds good it sounds good. End of story, dude.

    iDrinkJ4ck

    Much edge, are you 14?

    NiqueyLovesIt

    @Read My Profile Picture To Cure Your Blindness idk how you vibe to music you can't fully understand or appreciate but go off

    Read My Profile Picture To Cure Your Blindness

    @NiqueyLovesIt How can I not fully understand or appreciate the music? With family in the police force who are amazing people, I sympathize with others who have had awful experiences with police. It's like if a young child has a bad experience with a dog. They grow up to either purely dislike them, or be terrified of them. I can't have sympathy because I'm personally pro-police? Again, that's small-minded.

    How about you go on another 8 month hiatus from this conversation so you can give that thought a second contemplation.

  44. Brandon Smith

    I keep seeing “I don’t agree with the message” throughout the comments. That’s frustrating.

    @SnaggleTOOTH I'm ignorant? Tell me why. Please, I'd love to hear your thoughts.

    SnaggleTOOTH

    Indyphobic Casuals Are Killing Professional Wrestling
    Oh? How about this. What is there to disagree with on the message? The song is anti-police brutality and even touches on the justice system itself when it comes to sentencing times of drug users and malicious pedophiles. You either disagree that police brutality exists/justice system issues or that they exist but it isn’t an issue. Either way that’s ignorant af.

    Is that more clear for you?

    Read My Profile Picture To Cure Your Blindness

    @SnaggleTOOTH There's plenty to disagree with! I don't think that people should see police as enemies. Police "brutality" is rare and the killing of people is sometimes necessary. I'd love to see the band yell at officers who shoot an active gunman. I understand there's some dicks, but fear mongering and spreading hate towards nearly a million individual people based on the selfless career they chose is not okay.

    Now for the justice system and courts, I do disagree also. People don't go to prison for having an ounce of weed on them. People go to prison for having mass amounts of illegal narcotics on them. Not only is having things like cocaine, meth, bathsalts, weed (state depending) on you illegal, but people who go to prison for 10+ years usually have enough to sell and distribute. Taking that in mind, you're comparing the possession and possible distribution of something that is deadly, to rape. Neither is good, and comparing the two is not even close to fair. On one hand RAPE (most people who rape don't fair well in prison BTW), then on the other hand the possession (and depending on the amount) possible distribution of a narcotic that is in second place for killing people right behind cars. Doesn't seem so easy to say which is worse. Also adding on the fact that after you're released from prison for rape you're added to an offenders list. Making job opportunities, housing, gun ownership, insurance, etc. Incredibly difficult or even literally impossible. So, yeah. It isn't a bunch of rainbows and cupcakes. The topics this song covers is beyond the point of complicated, and the fact they act as if police and judges are at fault shows how truly little they know. This song is definitely a bop, but relying on them to give political opinions is not smart.

    *Genuinely sorry for the long ass reply.*

  76. Spikey Slug

    This comment section is a shithole of whiney little bitches who really needs to either grow a fucking pair, or leave it with Metal and Hardcore.

    What is your problem ? Don't understand the concept of Hardcore Punk ? Why can't you just assume at once the shit you listen to ?? This is supposed to be EXTREME music, so naturally, it ain't gonna talk about happy shit, duh !

    Are you butthurt these guys are calling on a real injustice happening right now outside of your little gold bubble paradise ? They're making what Hardcore is supposed to do : point our the social injustice and schock you with a violent message, make you think and react, not make you feel good in your comfort zone like Pop always does.

    "Wah wah, dis iz edgy... wah wah..." Fine ! Fuckoff then ! Is it Metalsucks's fucktardery useless drama Gestapo that corrupted your mind ?

    Extreme Music + Political correctness = ERROR : EPIC FAIL !
    (You should've known that when you started to really get in Metal and stopped it with BvB)

    You can't assume the shit you listen to ? Then just get out ! Because this music isn't for you and you proved it by reacting like a crybaby to its message. Kisses.

    FUCK. THOSE. WHO. KILL.

  86. Dillon Hicks

    I've been following this band since they played in my hometown back in 2011. I've always had great things to say about them. But Nomad was disappointing. And I don't agree with the messages in some of their songs on the new album and this is one of them. But I guess after so many songs, you can't keep writing about personal struggles and overcoming/dealing with them. Maybe I'm just getting old but man is this disappointing.

    iDrinkJ4ck
