Track Name: Ethnic Writer
Ethnic Writer

Verse 1

I am an ethnic writer
at least that's what the readers say.

Write about the victim
they'll like you better - that way.

Write about the loss of your people
Write about how nobodies equal.

Sit at white house panels
representing every ethnic angle

I'm an ethnic writer
at least that's the rumor

I write on a magic carpet
dropping stories on kids and baby boomers

Refrain 1

"Do you like American Music?"
"Yea, I like all kinds of music."
"Do you consider yourself an ethnic writer?"
"Um, I was born in this country..."

Verse 2

I'm an ethnic writer
at least that's how the media acts

They need to compare me
to some other artifact

And I forgot about my story
Forgot about what I had to say

They ask how I could be so angry
cuz I write using "...a series of clever wordplay."

I write about the place in between
negotiating the American Dream.

I'm just trying to pay my rent
so I'll be as ethnic as our President.

Refrain 2

"So how do you feel about like having a weird name,
and how do you feel about islamophobia,
and how do you feel about like um Asian Stereotypes,
and like how do you feel about..."
"Um...I'm sorry I was thinking about my hair. I don't really care."

[Guitar Solo]

Verse 3

I am an ethic writer
at least that's what the publishers say.

Write about the immigrant
you'll get more readers that way.

Write about the loss of your people
Write about how nobodies equal.

Sit at unpaid writers panels
representing every single asian angle.

I'm an ethnic writer (x4)
Track Name: I'll Be Your Terrorist
verse 1

and sing you lullabies
and if you resist im gonna persist
and scream a rallying cry

and put a bomb right in your thigh

gonna make a guide to this life to follow like my own personal 911
cuz all this time im fightin to stay alive your just fightin to have some fun

verse 2
if u dismiss ill blow you a kiss
in the blink of an eye
and if u exist im gonna assist

i aint a put on or a verse out of the qu'ran
right - or a suicide singer

cuz im'about to my missle in your burqa

(repeat chorus)
Track Name: Young Muslims Survival Guide
Yo its the Young Muslims Survival Guide
You do or die barely living just to survive
what type are you,
a fundie, a convert, a sufi
keeping secrets like assasins creed on the roofies


Talking about the world victimizing
I'm sick of these so-called Muslims antagonizing
coming from within, they say the war is unjust
but all I hear is big talk, small walks and dust
talking like they the prophet then hittin up hooters
but that aint the half of it - feel the wrath of it like iraqi looters
because im about to conjure up shaytan and confront some shit
what u doin? sitting on your ass listenin to it?

Yo its the Young Muslims Survival Guide
You do or die barely living just to survive
what type are you,
a fundie, a convert, a sufi
keeping secrets like assasins creed on the roofies

You call yourself religious that you stick to the pillars
fuckin hypocrite i hear u gossipping about your brothers and sisters
like a runon sentance, its generation same old shit, same old fits of
rage unpronounced like palestinians slingshot scimitar
wake the fuck up, your genocide aint a blip compared to the tatars
where were you were Russian knocked at my famlys door
shut the fuck up bitch your suburban spoken word is useless spillage

Yo its the Young Muslims Survival Guide
You do or die barely living just to survive
what type are you,
a fundie, a convert, a sufi
keeping secrets like assasins creed on the roofies

Welcome to your awareness, this aint your shayk collecting money in the bank to spread racist
views reverse enginnered koranic my rhymes are shaytanic designed to cause panic
shut the track off hijabi you got homework to do with your mommy this is for big girls and boys who question the corruption
the reconstructed interpretations by wahabs in Saudistan added suras based on burning graves of saints,
and so-called pure muslims in capes killing babies for the love of hymens and grapes

Yo its the Young Muslims Survival Guide
You do or die barely living just to survive
what type are you,
a fundie, a convert, a sufi
keeping secrets like assasins creed on the roofies

More like the love of death, you obsessed sociopathic terrorists,
i bet your father is sitting at his computer complaining about the censorship
under house arrest loosen your hijab show some chest you aint winnin my heart and mind sayin i been led astray,
if god was a cook and i was a shish I would ask for mercy and its instant switch
you judgmental cocksuckers got nuttin to do but obsess about taqwas ill black rock all ya's
