A lost art, no apprentices in it trained
And they brainwashed, no interest in its stain
And the minds weary, all the adrenaline in it drained

from Lupe Fiasco – Glory Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Revolution is dead but gang culture remains prevalent because the minds of these gangsters are being brainwashed by rap culture. Therefore, the same minds that we need to start a revolution, are weary or exhausted from ignorance. Therefore these same men are caught in a imaginery dream world that where ganglife is cool but stressful and adrenaline to respond to the stress.
