Try to pull the curtain back crack goes police whip

from El-P (Ft. Nick Diamonds) – Stay Down Lyrics on Rap Genius


This is a reference to the line “Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain”, from the Wizard of Oz, which is said during the critical moment before Dorothy and her friends realize who and what the “great” wizard really is.

Except in El’s Oz if you try to expose the powers-that-be for what they really are, you’ll get brutally oppressed by the police.
