  In Allah we trust

In Allah we trust
Separation of church and state
All the cover-ups and lies
Government conspiracies to keep up out of the light
Wanting us to join to fight
A war not even ours
Pushing our beliefs of our system on them
When we donít even have faith in ours
Crooked systems, crooked politicians
We decide who president
Such a joke
Look at Florida and now maybe Ohio
We are like laboratory animals
Used for a purpose then thrown away
Used and abused caste to the side
Another civil war
Federal vs. citizens
When will it ever end?
Yea we do got it better then some folks
Not a third world country
But our blocks say a different story
Slumlords giving us fucked up places to live
Drug dealers mis-wiring our kids
Roaches and rats as common as dogs and cats
Drive by on a timely manner
Third grade education for emancipated adults
And you wonder why employment so high
13 year olds popping out kids before puberty hits
No proper supervision because parents always gotta work
Community centers?
Jokes on us
Over population arun with aids
Whereís the cure?
Oh yea, population control
Only Allah can save us now
Better to go to church
But that donít work
Pastors taking the Lords money for his own pleasure
Shit, the priests are taking the little boys
When will it all end?
The conspiracies to commit murder
The DA going crooked with the cops
Now sooner then later
That I do know
When will it all end?
All this hurting in the world
When some man put EVE at the top of the nation

Good points. I agree with your sentiments exactly. Religious fundamentalists controlling this country is no different from the Taliban controlling Afghanistan.
