Public Enemy - Black Steel In The Hour Of Chaos

  • I got a letter from the government
    The other day
    I opened and read it
    It said they were suckers
    They wanted me for their army or whatever
    Picture me given' a damn - I said never
    Here is a land that never gave a damn
    About a brother like me and myself
    Because they never did
    I wasn't wit' it, but just that very minute...
    It occured to me
    The suckers had authority
    Cold sweatin' as I dwell in my cell
    How long has it been?
    They got me sittin' in the state pen
    I gotta get out - but that thought was thought before
    I contemplated a plan on the cell floor
    I'm not a fugitive on the run
    But a brother like me begun - to be another one
    Public enemy servin' time - they drew the line y'all
    To criticize me some crime - never the less
    They could not understand that I'm a Black man
    And I could never be a veteran
    On the strength, the situation's unreal
    I got a raw deal, so I'm goin' for the steel

    They got me rottin' in the time that I'm servin'
    Tellin' you what happened the same time they're throwin'
    4 of us packed in a cell like slaves - oh well
    The same motherfucker got us livin' is his hell
    You have to realize - what its a form of slavery
    Organized under a swarm of devils
    Straight up - word'em up on the level
    The reasons are several, most of them federal
    Here is my plan anyway and I say
    I got gusto, but only some I can trust - yo
    Some do a bid from 1 to 10
    And I never did, and plus I never been
    I'm on a tier where no tears should ever fall
    Cell block and locked - I never clock it y'all
    'Cause time and time again time
    They got me servin' to those and to them
    I'm not a citizen
    But ever when I catch a C-O
    Sleepin' on the job - my plan is on go-ahead
    On the strength, I'ma tell you the deal
    I got nothin' to lose
    'Cause I'm goin' for the steel

    You know I caught a C-O
    Fallin' asleep on death row
    I grabbed his gun - then he did what I said so
    And everyman's got served
    Along with the time they served
    Decency was deserved
    To understand my demands
    I gave a warnin' - I...
