my submission for the "I Swear It's True!" Contest, started on the BBS by NeonProject. I was invited to participate. The Final will be aired on Radiogrounds on the 18th July at 6PM EST. If you have IRC and like the track, toss me your vote!

The article I based this song off of is
http://www.projectc ensored.org/top-stories/a rticles/4-ilea-is-the-us-

The original beat is KillBill's 'March of the Demons', to which I did a little editing.

it's elementary elements in every entity
ending the empathy, embarrassing the century
the eulogy is read, our minds are dead and hopeless
the focus is on safety, but inside we really know that this is
just a character, fiction livin inside cement walls
carried bloodied bruised and broken, bleeding down the halls
while something inside us calls out, "this isn't right!"
we pretend that it's our conscience we need to fight
despite the shackles that will drag us down to the grave
we relish the torment that holds us, knowing we're slaves
if we gave a damn to change the plan and save a man's spirit
every frequency would fill the air, no way not to hear it
as you near it's epicenter, with your next of kin
dissent is just beggin and pleadin "let me in!"
protesting thespians and guerilla mechanics
rise up with me, because we won't stand it!!

The International Law Enforcement Academy
the new School of the Americas, terrorizing actively
actually their actions and tactics are secret
Another dirty war? Tell em WE DON'T NEED IT

2nd lesson, it's time to break it down into statistical
why is it that the percentage of south american criminals
is literally police violence against the populace
breaking down the doors and strong arm robbing us
from protecting and serving to military action
creating factions and political assassins
actin as if they can hide behind a badge and a vest
they say it's drug dealers killing police? incorrect
the best guess would've been, it's the women and men
who suffer dictators and genocide, time and again
but what is the antagonist's reasoning in this fable?
so those willing and able, capable of doing damage
let us rise up as one, proving we can stand and
Fight! let's do it tonight
before they black bag us all, turn out the lights

It's quite unfortunate that someone like you is behind a song against US-funded training of Latinamerican police and military forces. I'll assume your political ideals sway to the left. Nothing wrong with that. The problem lies in the fact that you assume left-wingers in latinamerica are the same as civilized left-wingers in the rest of the world, and that's not the case. We don't want people like Chavez, Ortega, or Castro in power, let alone puppets like Zelaya. Left-wing extremist scum is better off dead.

You, of course, don't live here and don't understand the need for a right-wing conservative dictatorship, the kind that comes in flavors of Pinochet and Somoza, the kind that's shunned for so-called "human rights abuses" (social purging would be more appropriate) while they make their respective countries progress economically and culturally. The US used to back such governments until idiots like Jimmy Carter came along and created instability. I'll take military dictatorships over communism -anyday-.

Might also want to lookup the atrocities that the FARC (Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia) has committed, the same group that's linked to drug trafficking in south america, the one that's funded by Chavez' and Ortegas' governments.

Other than that, song's decent.

pretty raw

great flow, great beat, good mixing. enough said. keep it up!


I'm definitely a fan of this. Good to see some angry conscientiousness. Only suggestion: turn up your vocals a tad bit more. Other than that, this is perfect

Gasmasq responds:

Figured you'd like it Wyze. Of course, the only reason I keep my voc's low is so I can keep getting 9's from you. lol.

Actually, I'ma try to get Billy to EQ me correctly...

I dig this, very original

I really like this style of hip-hop. Would give it a ten (and normally I don't take off anything for this) but I wish that some of the EQ was tweaked to give me more slam on the kick, and also that the vocals were a little more crisply recorded, but writing music myself I understand that awesome recording equipment isn't cheap to come by.

Gasmasq responds:

you're absolutely right, and I wish the same thing. thanks for the review though! i'll get that damn equip one day... XD
