*Ahem*

I go by the name of Rukus

Turn me up a little bit…yeah

The news said they’re stealing purses at churches…
That someone out there’s dying the moment our mothers birth us,
That the ozone has holes and pretty soon the earth is,
Gonna burn like a furnace from too much sun on the surface…
Yo – we all just trying to find our purpose,
People love these lyrics, but none of’em love to purchase,
And artists sign to labels, but all of the musics worthless,
So I’m writing in the studio, wonder if this is worth it…
Meanwhile, there’s babies being aborted,
their mothers can’t afford it, and their maga wants it sorted,
The news said teachers paychecks being shorted,
While governors spend 200M to get cars imported,
Bullet proof? Boko Haram killing youth,
We hop inside a voting booth, but I think we all know the truth,
We’re secretly praying our generation aint doomed
The news said we’re getting light very soon…(Hmmmm)

There’s reason I sing these blues,
While watching that 10 o’clock news…
The news aint changing
Fighting
Killing
Same ol thang now –
We keep watching…
We keep watching…
(oh)We keep watching…
We keep watching…

The news said 60% of Naija is poor,
That Dangote’s one of the richest men in Forbes,
And the Super Eaglets beat Mexico by 3 scores,
But under 17? Nah – they over 24;
I’m kidding, but motives are never hidden,
Money stolen by government officials unforgiven,
The way people are living, got’em begging on the streets,
Asking for something to eat, with blisters all on their feet,
Thats why we lie and we cheat – trying to get a little edge,
Trying to make dirty money, call it agege bread…
And the news said we’re one of the fastest growing,
GDPs in the world, but how come none of its showing?
And I heard its now illegal to be gay,
And I wonder if that should really be the focus nowaday,
Leave the judging to God, – see its all a facade,
To distract from our progress – our economy and jobs…
Somethings wrong, its the same old song,
We’re corrupt, we’re too greedy since the British have been gone,
And what’s sad is if I buy a bentley when I blow,
I go drive the thing on unpaved road…na so.

There’s reason I sing these blues,
While watching that 10 o’clock news…
The news aint changing
Fighting
Killing
Same ol thang now –
We keep watching…
We keep watching…
(oh)We keep watching…
We keep watching…

The news said people are getting kidnapped,
That we love afrobeat, but we no sabi rap,
That a plane just crashed, from Abuja to Lagos,
10,000 in the Philippines never got to wakeup,
And if that’s true, we could all die soon,
But I hope a typhoon takes all of our tycoons,
while I’m in my room, writing another tune,
There’s a governor in office just handing his brother spoon –
Nothing is earned –
The news recently confirmed teachers still on strike, how can kids learn?
if you tell people the truth, it feels like a bridge burned,
Someone cuts in front of you, they’ll tell you its his turn…
Its cool, mama never raised a fool,
Beggars they want money but they never raised a tool..
The news says better days are ahead,
Just turn it off and just play this instead…(Use your head)

There’s reason I sing these blues,
While watching that 10 o’clock news…
The news aint changing
Fighting
Killing
Same ol thang now –
We keep watching…
We keep watching…
(oh)We keep watching…
We keep watching…

There’s reason I sing these blues,
While watching that 10 o’clock news…
The news aint changing
Fighting
Killing
Same ol thang now –
We keep watching…
We keep watching…
(oh) We keep watching…
We keep watching…

Ruk!

Yum.
