King Technology Lyrics: The time has come for America to hear the truth (Martin Luther King Jr. speech excerpt) Verse 1: Fellow huemans lady huemans Ameri-blacks This is F.Y.I. I want to talk to you about one of our most deadly killers in the world today I had a vision the other night as I was posted in my living room As I zoned out, I started dreaming I dreamt I walked in a place I saw lights flashing, screens blinking, words being typed by the minute And I found out it was technology That deadly drug that goes in your brain He said I came to this world for the sake of man's ego Ever since then I been worshipped by the people My little black microchips boost ships into space Within seconds information is replaced I'm a world of power, yes, all of its true Use me now and you'll know it too I can make a wimp kid be a cyber bully I can make a preacher forget his faith fully I can make a husband cheat on his wife Send a pedophile to prison for the rest of his life I can make a man revolt on-line Televised burning of flags Make girls sell they bodies for likes and hashtags Some think my invention is the definition of evolve But I'll teach you how to make and distribute the next school bomb In cell phone cases I found my way From player palaces to cells upstate I'm made in Asia, consumed in the West Respected worldwide where men will invest I take my addicts and make them happy, angry, cry Then they search for a blog to show they suicide So be you white, yellow, black, or Mex I can make heterosexual high schoolers confused about they sex So now, now homeboy, you go on, play that role Keep logging on to your favorite page To you lose your soul Now delusion is taking you from under my wing You like to read about conspiracies of the Illuminati Now you sitting there, in a chair, blank stare Where you got your attention for hours without a care Some is spoiled, comfortable, got fat, lazy Rather live in a made up world, then live in a real one, it's crazy Cursing each other, texting foul speech You can send any drunk thought when you in my button's reach Now you in the comfort of your own home You became a czar to your destiny Fear not young man or woman, I'll be there when you lonely Don't be afraid, don't run, I won't crash Sure my name is technology, you'll see that I'm moving fast Trust, you're hooked, your foot is on the pedal Hurry up, step on the gas, and ride him cruising For the digital car of technology will ride you to confusion Confusion Will ride you to confusion Until you are lost (Amen), lost brother,lost This is a revolution of the spirit Get your mind unplugged And go live for real That's the plan
