Krs-One – Don’t Fall For It Lyrics

Don’t you fall for it
Don’t you fall for it

Keep your head up, never let up
Never let them get you fed up
You just step up, get your rep up
Get your cash up, get your check up
The whole system’s a setup, it’s time we really get up
We been about this revolution from the time we met up
Take it back, I got my fist up, Malcolm X in ’88
But revolution only works for those that will participate
You are great, they are fake
Yo, it’s time to demonstrate
Higher level mental states
Conscious people, congregate!
Show the love, not the hate
This is basic, no debate
But these people are debating and they hating, they should wait
It was bickering amongst ourselves that got us in this state
Yeah, the truth is inconvenient, but the truth is never late

You can’t see what they be doing?
How they thinking? How they moving?
You can’t see what they pursuing?
Making claims, none approving?

Don’t fall for it, don’t fall for it
Don’t fall for it, don’t fall for it

We can see who is the enemy
Sovereignty’s the remedy
You don’t need telepathy
It’s white supremacy

Don’t fall for it, don’t fall for it
Don’t fall for it, don’t fall for it

Bringing it raw, doing it all
Government officials bringing the law
You never see what you never saw
303, open the door
Knowledge reigns, that is the game
Ignorance, that is insane
Don’t fall for it, the Reps and the Dems are the same
This one’s shooting us up, that one’s locking us up
This one gotta stop, that one’s outta luck
You could front if you need to, the cycle never ends
No justice, but in four years they hyping us again

Don’t fall for it, don’t fall for it
Don’t fall for it, don’t fall for it

If you thinking and you earning
And you drinking and you burning
And you really not concerning
With the news and what they learning

Don’t fall for it, don’t fall for it
Don’t fall for it, don’t fall for it

If you love it, never hate it
You agree and don’t debate it
[?] you educated
Your degree is highly rated

Don’t fall for it, don’t fall for it
Don’t you fall for it, don’t fall for it

Yo, me, I’m not a fake dude, I’ma keep it real real
They see through it all, that "America needs to heal" deal
America ain’t really sick, this is what it really is
Gunshots and cages for black and brown little kids
Now they acting like they not the cause of how we live
Do not tell me what you gonna do, I can see what you did
Look at her, look at him, look at them, look at me
Do you see our interests represented in society?
No you don’t, and you won’t ’cause democracy’s a joke
Every four years these same people asking us to vote
Nothing changed but the Range Rover switching lanes over
I remain the flamethrower, knowledge reigns, game over
Don’t fall for it, don’t you fall for it
Rodney King, George Floyd, man, we all saw it

So don’t protest with defiance
But don’t move with self-reliance
While the soul was being silenced
By the religion of science

Don’t fall for it, don’t you fall for it
Don’t fall for it, don’t you fall for it

If you thinking and you earning
And you drinking and you burning
And you really not concerning
With the news and what they learning

Don’t fall for it, don’t you fall for it
Don’t fall for it, don’t you fall for it

There’s no justice in the courts
We are always taking shorts
They can shoot us like a sport
And it’s our trust that they want?

Don’t fall for it, don’t you fall for it
Don’t fall for it, don’t you fall for it

Take it up!
Take it low now

Don’t fall for it, don’t you fall for it
Don’t fall for it, don’t you fall for it
