No More (Spoken Word) – Shahroz

Lyrics for No More

by Shahroz

[Verse 1]
I hate the way they paint a picture of us, villainous/
a stroke of genius, just a way to up the ratings with/
i’m sick and tired of these liars always blaming us/
acting like we’re responsible for the radicalization of/
a religion, that gets hijacked, just like any other in fact/
It’s funny they don’t talk about Christian militia killing civilians and using bible verses to justify it/
So what’s the difference? Please do not rationalize it/
I don’t place blame on you for the crusades, slave masters, or the KKK/
Even though black americans are still facing the aftermath from your ancestors racist ways/
So let me break down the way the media is supplying it/
Black man commits a crime, must be a product of his culture & environment/
Muslim man commits a crime, Islam is a cancer that’s dividing us/
White man commits a crime, insanity was underlying from his childhood/
They wanna fill ignorant citizens with patriotism to get support for/
Profiting off oil and war, while nobody talks about Nigeria or Darfur/
And now they got the nerve to talk about freedom of speech?/
But if someone says something homophobic, racist, or anti-semitic, it’s a news story for weeks/
So they think we shouldn’t get upset when someone makes a mockery of our Prophet/
Just stop it, the double-standard and hypocrisy is about adding dollars to your pocket/
[Verse 2]
They told me I should keep my mouth shut and avoid controversy/
Well if i reverse the verse, ill be in a hearse with my mouth shut involuntary/
I can’t worry about protecting my rep, or being politically correct/
When the politics were designed to keep us impotent/
So in effect, whether you’re Muslim or not, please don’t fall for the ignorance/
Because fear is control, that’s why you’re getting tapped on the internet/
I hope you understand why i’m so frustrated, i’m running out of patience/
I got trust issues when spies start infiltrating the holiest of places/
I still love this country but i’m just tired of being targeted/
Bring the power back to the people, the ones who can actually harbor it/
The ones who are caring, loving, intelligent and honest/
But it’s a minority with the power and a superiority complex/
Divide and conquer, has always been the mantra/
If that’s what they call freedom, then freedom is an imposter/
I take my nickel, quarter, & dime, throw it in the air/
Put the weight(wait) with the gravity, so I know change is near/
