[CHORUS:] [KRS-ONE:] Need I say the C.I.A. be criminals in action cocaine,crack unpackin' high surveillance trackin', prominent blacks & whites giving orders for mass slaughters I want all my daughters to be like Maxine Waters when they flooded the streets with crack/cocaine I was like Noah now they lower 'cause the whole Cold War is over Communism fell to the dollars you were grabbin & all the assault & battering; in the name of Intelligence gathering? Now it's calm & you're battling a losing fight I chose the mic to recite, ignite light in the night, aiiight we should beat em President Clinton should delete 'em It's not hard the CIA simply has no more job oh my Goddess mother you can fix this we rock over mixes not 666's yo this is the message to all that can hear it if you got secret information now's the time to share it call your Congress woman, your Senator, your Mayor It's time for all the scholars to unite with all the playas rearrange & see times are definetely changing G. they used to tap the phone now they're tapping while you're paging me it's crazy B. yet it's plain to see who's the enemy who's left? the NRA, the ATF, the AMA, ok, ok, it's all irrelevant 'cause in the new millenium; there'll be no Central Intelligence. Uh! yeah! uh! yeah! throw your hands up, You know what's up kid Throw your hands up, Ha Ha! yeah! Ha Ha! yeah!
