Makes You Blind - Public Enemy

Yo
Look out
Come on now
I can feel it now
Y'all got me feeling like Ray Charles up in here
I feel it, oh, I believe all the way to my soul
You got me feeling like Stevie Wonder, what the hell is going on?
Oh, yeah
You know what? They're blind and still can't see
When the master strikes you

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven
Rap like hell, make it sound like heaven
Seven, six, five, four, three, two, one, zero
Black superman is back as your hero
Here ye, here yo
America the beautiful
Beautiful, the plentiful
Now lookin' sorta pitiful
A third of the world at war
Wait a minute
Gotta take care of that rock if y'all wanna live in it
Medicine and Medicare, 'cause they don't care
Your favourite millionaire is in the air
See him everywhere but they ain't there
So rally and protest against the world in fear

Now, people, people
Can we take it to the square?
(Yeah)
Yeah, yeah
Now, you don't matter and they don't mind
'Cause these be the things that make you blind, come on

(Makes you blind, makes you blind)
(Makes you blind, they can't see)
(Makes you blind, makes you blind)
(Makes you blind, they can't see)
(Makes you blind, makes you blind)
(Makes you blind, they can't see)
(Makes you blind, makes you blind)
(Makes you blind, they can't see)

Pimp or preach, same thing
Nothing worse than a new black church
Who be lying on the truth 'cause it hurts
Black man came first in the sweet name of Jesus
Cost me a dollar at the floor of Creflo
Like, how the hell he supposed to know I see their ass?
In the name of the Allah, running to the radio
And the TV issues and views shaped by one-sided news
Got us like Planet of the Apes on their CDs and tapes
Preachy, young cats asking old heads, teach me
Yeah, album of beats that reach me
Radiation of a radio TV movie nation
On your goddamn mind, uh
Makes you blind

You don't matter and they don't mind
'Cause these be the things that make you blind
I say, you don't matter and they don't mind
'Cause these be the things that make you blind, come on

(Makes you blind, makes you blind)
(Makes you blind, they can't see)
(Makes you blind, makes you blind)
(Makes you blind, they can't see)
(Makes you blind, makes you blind)
(Makes you blind, they can't see)
(Makes you blind, makes you blind)
(Makes you blind, they can't see)

Now, y'all keep bouncing to what I said
'Cause these be the facts that's gonna blow your head
Y'all know what I said, when I say no to a thug
Thug life runs at the top and y'all thought it was Pac
These government gangsters making robots who forgot hypnotic
In the 2000 by 3000 mile box
35 years old, lost in a Xbox
PlayStation and videos, so that's how it goes?
The world begins and ends at the tip of they nose
It ain't Eminem, it's M and M and M
McDonald's, MTV and Microsoft
Can't you see they got the young strung at a cost?
Yes, it's that treacherous three, go off, go off

Now, you don't matter and they don't mind
'Cause these be the things that make you blind
I say, you don't matter and they don't mind
'Cause these be the things that make you blind, come on (blind to the fact, they can't see)

(They can't see, they can't see)
(Blind to the fact, they can't see)
(They can't see, they can't see)
(Blind to the fact, they can't see)
(They can't see, they can't see)
(Blind to the fact, they can't see)
(They can't see, they can't see)

So I pray to God my life and health, uh
I feel like I got a church in myself
So I, I jump back and kiss myself
Cutbacks, look out, I can't get no help
Throw your hands in the air, Bush and Blair don't care
While the unaware, uh, they just stare
This nation said, screw the organization of United Nations
Yeah, across them TV stations
They said to the masses, they consider them asses
Take a look at the world, another sons of Bush disaster
Do the math, 'cause the loudest they coming after
These the same cats who wiped out half of Africa
And you don't know the half, the have-nots robbed by the haves
Signing new money like signing autographs
McDonald's billions sold, America billions told
Houston, we got a problem, isn't this a bitch?
When I want to hear blues, I be turning on the news
See, the rich get richer and the poor keep bitching
Buckle down, knuckle up, when time is rough
Buckle down, knuckle up, when time is rough

Say, you don't matter and they don't mind
'Cause these are the things that make you blind now
You don't matter and they don't mind
'Cause these be the things that make you blind, come on
Y'all don't know, y'all don't know
Y'all don't know, y'all don't know

(Makes you blind, makes you blind)
(Makes you blind, they can't see)
(Makes you blind, makes you blind)
(Makes you blind, they can't see)
(Makes you blind, makes you blind)
(Makes you blind, they can't see)
(Makes you blind, makes you blind)
(Makes you blind, they can't see)

Y'all don't know, y'all don't know
Y'all don't know, y'all don't know
Y'all don't know, y'all don't know
Y'all don't know
Y'all don't know, y'all don't know
Y'all don't know, y'all don't know
Y'all don't know, y'all don't know
Y'all don't know (oh, yeah)

I've always had a respect for all music, as well as Flava
And you know music is, is one to make a change
You know, communicate to all
