    I was listening to this song today and all I could think about was the Trayvon/Zimmermon case, Florida and the US government.



    Lyrics provided:

    Watching me [7 times]
    Ah
    Watching me [7 times]
    Ah

    (yawn)

    First thing when I wake up
    and right before I close my eyes at night
    I think,
    sense,
    Feel man like
    I'm under some kind of microscope
    satellites over my head
    transmitters in my dollars
    hawking, watching, scoping, jocking
    scrutinizing me
    checking to see what im doing
    where i be
    who i see
    how and where and with whom I make my money
    What is this??

    Excuse me miss
    May i have your phone number and your social security?
    Who me?
    When all i came to do is buy my double or triple A batteries
    Please
    I DECLINE!!!

    Watching me [7 times]
    Ah
    Watching me [7 times]
    Ah

    Look here at this watch of mine
    Gotta open it up
    Don't know who's been in it
    Tracking where I go
    Finding out all my business

    Sucurity

    Video cameras locked on me
    In every dressing room
    On every floor
    In every store

    Damn can i get that to my democracy

    and
    Equality and privacy

    You busy watching me, watching me
    That your blind baby
    You neglect to see
    The drugs coming into my community
    Weapons coming into my community
    Dirty cops in my community

    And you keep saying that im free
    [3 times]

    Busy watching me
    ah

    Watching Me [7 times]
    AH
    Watching Me [7 times]

    I ain't got no bars to this cage
    If I'm gonna stay here
    I'm gonna build me a lead house
    Keep them satellites out
    Direct TV
    Am I watchin' it or is it watchin' me?
    Man I don't really know
    but I feel like

    I feel like I'm being scoped y'all

    Watch y'all
    Somethin' ain't right [2 times]

    [CHORUS]

    And you keep sayin' that I'm free [6 times]
    AH
    And you keep sayin' that I'm free [6 times]
    AH
