peace not greed lyrics – kottonmouth kings

good evening, this is los angelos

a lonely teenage daydream
of things i just might be
a surreal kind of thinking
keeps on drifting in on me
my twisted body is lifeless
not so their twisted minds
peace through power their motto
power through peace their crime

product of our environment (x8)

maybe one day they will legalize weed
in the year two “g” the planet could be deceased
we plead to the fleece while we’re beggin’ on our knees
in our hometown cali with bears and green trees
birds and the bees, hot sand on the beach
sh*lls in the sea and i’m living in peace
like a dog on a leash locked up with no key
i gotta smoke under cover, motherf*ck the police

yeah, see the matching hand and they’re robbing from the hat
the laws an illusion to symbolize that
putting us in jail for the with us living tax tax
i can see the wires in the levitating act
i can hear the lies and they’re calling them facts
i can see the bars and they’re olokin all cracked
i read between the lines but the lines are all cr*p
i can feel the knife turning in my back

how would life be if the world smoked weed?
guaranteed there’d be peace not greed
see, it’s h*ll
living in a cell
legalize the plant only time will tell

how would life be if the world smoked weed?
guaranteed there’d be peace not greed
see, it’s h*ll
living in a cell
legalize the plant only time will tell

you are a sacred being of light
projected into reality for a purpose
demand the right to your moment
in this holographic gift with no rules, no borders
except for those who you choose to accept and live by

abolish government is nothing to me
forget about god, he’s not here to see
we live by a system, a perfect mold
people perfect people who are poor and old
lies were spent on a sad defense
they said we’re lookin for a method in this world?
presidents are named
presidents are labeled highest man on the government table

america, land of the free
free to the power of the people in uniform (x2)

how would life be if the world smoked weed?
guaranteed there’d be peace not greed
see, it’s h*ll
living in a cell
legalize the plant only time will tell

how would life be if the world smoked weed?
guaranteed there’d be peace not greed
see, it’s h*ll
living in a cell
legalize the plant only time will tell

society, f*ck it!
i’ve had enough!
the system’s full of crooks, straight up corrupt
you look like a decoy bobbing like a duck
and your money keeps em smokin on a bc bluff
you’re caught up in the headlights of my v-dub bus
tsol and the kings about to even things up
your birds will take all the air out the sky
bring em down to our level
you can work, can’t hide

product of our environment (x8)

a lonely teenage daydream
of things i just might be
a surreal kind of thinking
keeps on drifting in on me
my twisted body is lifeless
not so their twisted minds
peace through power their motto
power through peace their crime

the government keeps our control over the population
while the schools teach the kids restricted education
murder, rape, s*x, and underage prost*tution
they got the war on pot, they got the wrong solution

i wake and i bake, nowhere to escape
livin’ life in a tank they invade my sp*ce
betrayed full of hate while they’re shootin all blanks
society’s lost in a paranoid state

it’s the illusion of ownership, it’s take what you can get
the banks are the loan sharks and everyone’s in debt
and if you get ahead how quickly you forget
you’re hanging from a burning rope without a safety net
they tax you when you sell
they tax you when you buy
they take half when you live
then they take half when you die
these are the lies that they are stating as facts
i can see the wires of the levitating act

how would life be if the world smoked weed?
guaranteed there’d be peace not greed
see, it’s h*ll
living in a cell
legalize the plant only time will tell

how would life be if the world smoked weed?
guaranteed there’d be peace not greed
see, it’s h*ll
living in a cell
legalize the plant only time will tell

i’m glad that i can read
i’m glad that i can write
i read their f*ckin bullsh*t
every single night
when off in my head went a little f*ckin light
it told me what was wrong it told me what was right
world bank-power and control
issuing the money and they’re dollin’ out the roles
charging what they want to with the money, the control
living in their nightmare, giving them your soul!
