[Verse 1]
I’m from where the gold and diamonds are ripped from the earth
Right next to the slave castles where the water is cursed
From where police brutality's not half as nice
It makes the hood in America look like paradise
Compared to the AIDS infested Caribbean slum
African streets where the passports an American gun
From where they massacre people and try to keep it quiet
And spend the next 25 years tryna deny it

I’m from where they cut your hands off if you make a fist
And niggas grow coca cause the job market doesn’t exist
Except slave labour modern day company store
And peacekeepers don’t ever ever ever come here no more
From where the bombs that they used to drop on Vietnam
Still has children born deformed 8 months before they gone

I’m from where they lost the true meaning of the Koran
Cause heroin is not compatible with Islam
And niggas know that but grow that poppy seed anyway
Cause that food drop parachute does not come everyday

I’m from where people pray to the gods of they conquerors
And practically every presidents a money launderer
From where the only place democracy's acceptable
If Americas candidate is electable
And they might even have a black president but he’s useless
Cause he does not control the economy stupid!


[Hook]
Lock and load your gun where i’m from the 3rd world son
Been to many places but I’m 3rd world born
Guerillas hit and run where i’m from the 3rd world son
You polluted everything and now the 3rd world’s gone
The water is poison where i’m from the 3rd world son
700 children died by the end of this song

Revolution'll come where i’m from the 3rd world son
Constant occupation leaves the 3rd world torn

[Verse 2]
I’m from where the Catholic church is some racist shit
They helped Europe and America rape this bitch
They pray to white Spanish Jesus who’s face is this?
But never talk about the black pope Gelasius
I’m from where Soviet weapons still decide elections
Militaries like the Mafia you pay for protection
Catamite sex tours is what the country sells
And rich white businessmen make the best clientèle

I’m from where they too pussy to come film Survivor
And they murder Coca-Cola union organisers
I’m from where the justice system esta podrido
Fuck government niggas politic over perico
Rebelde conocido, enterado vivo
Como otro Argentino desaparecido
Cause RICO laws don’t apply to the CIA
And motherfuckers make sneakers for a quarter a day
I’m from where they overthrow Democratic leaders
Not for the people but for the Wall Street journal readers

From where blacks, indigenous peoples and Asians
Were once slaves of the Caucasians
And it’s amazing how they trained them
To be racist against themselves in the place they was raised in
You kept us caged in

Destroyed our culture and said that you civilised us
Raped our women and when we were born, you despised us
Gentrified us, agent provocateur divide us
And crucified every revolutionary messiah
So i’m a start a global riot
That not even your fake anti-Communist dictators can keep quiet
Fuck your charity medicine tryna to murder me
The immunisations you gave us were full of mercury

So now I see the 3rd World like the rap game soldier
Nationalise the industry and take it over


[Hook]

[Outro]
Lock and load your gun where i’m from the 3rd world son
Been to many places but i’m 3rd world born
Guerillas hit and run where i’m from the 3rd world son
You polluted everything and now the 3rd world’s gone
The water is poison where i’m from the 3rd world son
700 children died by the end of this song
Revolution'll come where i’m from the 3rd world son
Constant occupation leaves the 3rd world torn
