They watered us down so they forces believe
That they won us through force and greed
The “forces” are the external pressures for Pro Era to sell out and commercialize their talents, thus, watering down the lyrical content and replacing it with a quick ignorant catchy hook. The “forces” will attempt to coerce Pro Era by force and by greed. The greed can be seen as the external pressures of a big payday for Pro Era to sell out, as well as the greed of the big wig record exec who doesnt care about the music and just wants to make money off of Pro Era’s talents.
