See we know, it's just us, no justice in this bitch Throw Away The Key by AWKWORD 30

The facts back this up. Look them up. People of color (and the poor) are disproportionately targeted and sentenced for crimes the rich (and white people) commit on a larger scale. Justice is what this country claims to pride itself on, but instead in AmeriKKKa we experience Just-Us, leaving the rest out to wither and die.

The sick and the starving, the lost ones, stuck with no options
It's awesome, like pulling people straight out of their coffins
Throw Away The Key by AWKWORD 30

I do what I do not for me but for the people in need: the sick and the starving, the ones lost with no options. And it feels good to do good. In some cases, almost like resurrecting the dead. But I can’t and don’t do it alone. There is no savior and saved here. For empowerment we work together, and I am merely a facilitator.

On the real, call this the first hint of a problem
And when I say some shit's a problem it's not industry jargon
The problem I'm causing, gonna have the CIA watching
Throw Away The Key by AWKWORD 30

Rappers like to call their song or album “a problem”. But the problem I am referring to is revolutionary and societal. This is bigger than rap, bigger than Hip Hop. This is about using music to help spark change that strikes fear in the CIA, the Fed, etc.

Pause, none of us is goblins, except that one guy Throw Away The Key by AWKWORD 30

The rich treat the poor like paupers. The mostly white ruling class treats people of color like monsters. But we’re not, we’re human beings (perhaps other than that one guy who took bath salts and became a zombie).

I'm sorry Mr. President, I'm sorry Mr. Senator
I'm sorry Mr. Governor, we can't, recover her
See this country of ours, see this world of ours
Was never really yours, we just got a little bored
Nowadays, you got to deal, with all breeds, of all types
I guess you, the type right, to type right, all uptight
Throw Away The Key by AWKWORD 30

We can’t recover their conservative ideal of this country, because it was never real to begin with. Now more than ever the powerholders are confronted with this fact. There are more of us, and we are better organized to form a new country that does not discriminate based on race, class, gender, etc.

They come with they cars, and they laws, and they bars
They come at you sideways, no way you'll get off
And your whole life, you heard, stay away from them cops
And your word and your balls, is all that you got
Throw Away The Key by AWKWORD 30

Cops can come on foot, in unmarked vans, even on bikes or horses. But they usually come by car. And they also bring THEIR laws and THEIR bars. And we are afraid because the laws are not designed to protect us, and we can be locked away for nothing. For this reason, we’ve always been warned to stay away from the cops and live by our own rules.

Father might be gone, or he's working two jobs Throw Away The Key by AWKWORD 30

The fatherless child dilemma is real in impoverished neighborhoods. The good fathers are often working more than one job to help the family survive.

The vista from the stoops, Marine billboards, you bored Throw Away The Key by AWKWORD 30

The military knows where to spend its advertising dollars. In areas where young people are not going to college and need a way out. Marine billboards, for example, paint a picture of foreign travel and earned respect and college tuition. This isn’t the real picture, but some kids join for the simple reason that they’re bored on their block.

When you live without shit, go head and worship them cars Throw Away The Key by AWKWORD 30

I can only speak from my perspective. And I never speak ill about other rappers who talk about cars, clothes, jewelry, etc., in all of their music. There is a reason the culture is obsessed with these topics. When one is poor and observing the other side, the appeal of that other side becomes stronger and stronger. In other words, people want what they can’t (or haven’t) had. And our society celebrates material wealth, so who wouldn’t strive to attain it?

Born into prisons, most ghetto buildings got bars Throw Away The Key by AWKWORD 30

Bars on residential building windows is more than symbolism for the bars around prison cells and prison grounds. It has a profound emotional effect.
