LYRIC

I was taught that education is the only way to make it

Then how'd I get so much money inside my savings?

My teachers never saw the heights that I was fucking aiming

Did the man who invented college, go to college? Hm, okay then

Am I the only one that noticed humans on the same shit?

Y'all thoughts are sailing on the same ship

And if that's the case, then that's the reason that you ain't shit

Let me enlighten you my niggas, just let your brain drift

First of all, the best type of marketing is marketing that doesn't feel like marketing

It makes the people feel like they a part of it

And when it's done right, corporations think its marvelous

They feed us these ideas and then we place 'em in our hearts to sit

It's why players are good at getting chicks

It's why Nike is good at selling kicks

It's why Disney is loved by all the kids

Why McDonald's owners are super rich, we too blinded to ever see 'em pitch

See when this happens we take our health, wealth, lives and just hand them off

Thinking that we did this from organic thoughts

I know you seen parents trick kids with candy, toys, and Santa Claus

The same method is used to trap adults

But instead of candy it's with money, religion, drugs and alcohol

Mention that shit and it's gon' arouse us all

I done seen niggas get into fights over cigarettes like a pack of dogs

They get you hooked and then they laugh at y'all

I really hate to break it to you but your life's being played with

You have not witnessed the world cause you're stuck in the Matrix

Everything we have been taught was all a lie

Open your eyes, open your mind, and fly

Man, can't you see we're robots who know not what we do when we got no shot

In the real world until we climb out of this ice cold box

Your whole life has been part of a whole plot

To keep you at the bottom while they on top, stay quiet, then they won't stop

They always tryna show us what we don't got

They do it to all of us 'til we finally break and go cop a gold watch

Knowing we need the cash for rent

My ass is sick just thinking about how rich and powerful all these bastards get

They package ideas like it's oxygen

They make us feel like if we ain't got it, we fucked and we cannot fit in

This fucking system is not your friend

And understand they controlling your thoughts cause they got a lot to win

Niggas get turned away when I mention this

Ignorance is bliss but I don't give a fuck, I won't censor shit

The Matrix is real when you done entered it

It's way too intricate for you to ever realize that, you fucking simpleton

I really hate to break it to you but your life's being played with

You have not witnessed the world cause you're stuck in the Matrix

Everything we have been taught was all a lie

Open your eyes, open your mind, and fly

Yo, fuck Hollywood, fuck all these reality shows

Making us feel lame unless we blowing stacks on new clothes

Making us feel like we ain't cool unless we have a few hoes

Making us feel like we ugly, unless we have a new nose

I see naturally beautiful women get Botox, fake tits

Fake lips, they so brainwashed and it doesn't make sense

Focus on your life and the path you're pursuing

Cause y'all too busy worried about what Kim Kardashian's doing

Check it, most of this shit that you sheep are watching on television

Is fake as fuck and is not real, I rebel against it

It's the Devil's business, they just reel y'all in

If they say it, we do it, yo, I'm tryna tell y'all man

The system created the stereotype for the Black image

That's why my people are scared to be different, why don't you get it?

I'm done practicing these ridiculous rituals

It's time I become a real individual and just do me

I really hate to break it to you but your life's being played with

You have not witnessed the world cause you're stuck in the Matrix

Everything we have been taught was all a lie

Open your eyes, open your mind, and fly

Use your mind, be yourself

And, and nobody else but you

You and the meaning of life has no rules, no rules, no rules

Fly away

Fly away

Fly, and fly, away

Life's too short just live it

The world is just complete

Just go and get it, it's beautiful

Hopsin - FLY - lyrics
