autimaton:

You gotta be tired, the process, systematic

Sheltered, ignorant and meek –

Peeps need to kick the sheep

Like Fifa or a bad habit.

While the powers that be

Still label the others as savage,

There’s no relief for a media addict.

.

Yeah, you’re an addict.

I’m an addict too.

After all, this is on the book

So, yes, I’ve seen the madness too

But if you’re a savage,

You know that I’m a savage too.

.

Now, I know this is a sensitive concept

So let me try to explain:

The motherland remains neglected in times of struggle and pain

While dumb oil-hungry motherfuckers go hunt Saddam Hussein

Or how when Ebola struck

All the concern was on the US of A?

Speaking of, Mr. Officer, when did shooting blacks become okay?

.

So when I use the word savage,

It is because this place still treats you like one.

Not all the time,

Not from everyone.

But slavery, oppression – it still exists.

.

However, the eye that rarely gazes towards them,

Cannot help but see –

.

The others in themselves.
