Rabbi Darkside – Animal Farm Lyrics

I’ve been working like a dog and I’ve been eating like a pig
But I’ma give it my all until it’s curtains on the gig
Until I feed my folks

THE CITY
The city is a tar pit
Ash covers the carcass
Cash cows in apartments and alternate side parking
The city is a target
A few farmers markets
Bugs me out to walk Broadway and see Creature and Marvelous
But no Fat Beats
The city is a card trick
Surviving is a hardship psoriasis and large spliffs
The city is an artist
Asphalt’s a chalkboard
Everybody walk slow everybody talk more
Everybody buy cars everybody invest
Everybody say Ahhhh everybody ingest

The city is a tar pit
A petrified park bench
A checkered cab jet lagged gentrified armpit
The city is a target
Malignant rigged to blow
Everybody drive the lane but nobody can pick and roll
The city is a tribal war Times Square cyber porn
Accented by the siren soars noted in the crime report
The city is a blotter and the city is brothel
The city is a hostel and the city is a hospital
The city is a pothole where tires pop
And retired cops fire shots into china shops
The city is a casting call a cannonball a caterwaul
Get attacked attack ‘em back speed traps traffic laws
The city full of dump trucks, City leave me dumbstruck
Getting by on dumb luck party till the sun’s up

I’ve been working like a dog and I’ve been eating like a pig
But I’ma give it my all until it’s curtains on the gig
Until I feed my folks
Free my folks

THE CITIZENS

The citizens need a dental plan a pension plan
A 5 Pointz protection plan instead of a pentagram
The citizens don’t need 5-0
Citizens need live shows
Civic center revivals
Consistent train arrivals
Citizens need side roads sideburns chicks like
Citizens need dive bars trust funds fixed bikes

PSYCH!
The characters look like comic books
Villainy got Gotham looks
Diabolical Octopus
The citizens need an invisibility cloak
I mean an indivisibility building to build with folks
Citizens need scissors and citizens need blunt wraps
Kids they need sticky notes Wiki and a thumbtack
Man we need an image search of real emcees
Those who never spit a written verse and call it free
The citizen needs a limousine and a doorman
The citizen is a rich man stepping on the poor man
In the same flower patch watch the same hourglass
Till the lights black out and all want the power back

I’ve been working like a dog and I’ve been eating like a pig
But I’ma give it my all until it’s curtains on the gig
Until I feed my folks
Free my folks

THE COUNTRY

The country don’t need drones
The country don’t need clones
The country don’t need cologne
The country needs a soul
The country needs a blues band
And to drive with two hands
A morning trip to the newsstand
Instead of trips to boot camp
Country need a PDF
Country need a GPS
Minus INS
And muthaf*ck a standrized test
The country needs a rest
And needs less arrests for nothing less than being possessed
A deity in the flesh a DVD of the death
The GDP in a check Alicia Keys in a dress
The key to freedom at best the path to peace at the least
And happenings where they used to say things like Pass the Peas
Pass the peas like they used to say
The country need a couple new tunes to play
The country need a Q&A before we war like Blue and Grey
City harvest for the citizens on truth parade

I’ve been working like a dog and I’ve been eating like a pig
But I’ma give it my all until it’s curtains on the gig
Until I feed my folks
Free my folks
