about

Warning Signz is a collaboration between blctxt (MC) and AWOL (producer). The two met in Atlanta around 2009 before AWOL moved back to Rhode Island. While kicking around ideas for a song topic and wanting to do something different than they both were used to, the idea that is now Warning Signz came up. This single is a part of AWOL's Mayhem Muzik Monday series. ENJOY!!! [work = Love]

lyrics

Verse 1:
In the midst of a revolution on television, the plot thickens
People sitting watching unconscious to hidden agendas
(Not getting the picture)
Their state of mind is so delicate
Kicking knowledge on a situation seems irrelevant
(Boy stop)
These folk is sick and tired of being sick and tired
They’re losing hope in all the change they thought that they’d acquire
The possibilities are endless for conspiracy
How could I make this up when I know folk out there agree with me
They call it revolutionary
But it’s more like necessary
My lyrics are ammunition for the weapons you carry
Load it to the top and you aim it at your fear
Hold your breath and squeeze the trigger until your target is clear
I say, this a warning shot to let them know that you ain’t down
We the people have the power, we can shut the system out
Cut the strings and pull the curtains
Show’em we ain’t playin’ ‘round
If you with me throw your fist in the air and say it loud

Chorus:
This is a warning sign, for those in line
Listen and pay attention for once this time
I’m just telling the truth, just telling the truth
Just telling the truth, homie I’m spitting the truth
This is a warning sign, for those in line
Listen and pay attention for once this time
I’m just telling the truth, just telling the truth
Just telling the truth, homie I’m spitting the truth

Verse 2:
It’s like we slave in the Matrix with wool on our eyes
Slave for a paycheck, never see a dime
You would call me crazy cuz I ain’t in the line
Just to get a vaccine for a flu that’s been designed
We are human and they treat us like we’re cattle
Poke us and prod us with products and kill us in battle
You don’t see it’s a problem?
Then maybe you ain’t fit to live
I don’t go without a fight
I’ma tell it like it is, listen here
They call it revolutionary
But it’s more like necessary
My lyrics are ammunition for the weapons you carry
Load it to the top, aim it at your fear
Hold your breath and squeeze the trigger until your target is clear
I say, this a warning shot to let them know that you ain’t down
We the people have the power, we can shut the system out
Cut the strings and pull the curtains
Show’em we ain’t playin’ ‘round
If you with me throw your fist in the air and say it loud

Chorus:
This is a warning sign, for those in line
Listen and pay attention for once this time
I’m just telling the truth, just telling the truth
Just telling the truth, homie I’m telling the truth
This is a warning sign, for those in line
Listen and pay attention for once this time
I’m just telling the truth, just telling the truth
Just telling the truth, homie I’m spitting the truth

Bridge:
Freedom ain’t free, so tell me what it costs
I’d rather pay the price than let the system be my boss
Freedom ain’t free, so tell me what it costs
I’d rather pay the price than let the system be my boss
Freedom ain’t free, so tell me what it costs
I’d rather pay the price than let the system be my boss
Freedom ain’t free, so tell me what it costs
I’d rather pay the price than let the system be my boss
