When I was a kid I would go to the show and see the rock star
I'd play my records and look at the album cover at the rock star
Sometimes I'd check out the R & B
But the polka, salsa, classical scene just was not me.
I wanted to be like Bootsy Dr. Funkenstein or Jimi the rock star.
Color meant nothing to me
Everything was equal as far as I could see
Ignorant the racist music industry music industry music industry
Music industry... white rock star
Everywhere I look...white rock star
Read it in the paper...white rock star
Watch it on the TV...white rock star
Only for a rock star
Sing no rock star
Sometimes for the flavour of Japanese
No communication but it's overseas.

Nuaware of how propaganda works
I soon became a victim, a trick at work
With my black brotha's playin' rock & roll
signed and ho'in for a major label
selling my soul as a rock star.

Do the rock star ohh
Do the rock star yeah
Break a window, smash a TV
We're some hott mother fucka's
It's no doubt about, we do the rock star ohh
Do the rock star yeah
Get real drunk, fuck, fuck, fuck
Kick in the radio, smash up a chair
Do the rock star wooh
Do the rock star yeah
Wreck your hotel room, catch a Lear Jet
Stay in debt, manic depressed
Sweat & jerk to the best
Smoke a cig, fuck, fuck, fuck
Lie fry, loosin' your mind like a rock star
Loose it !
I got supposed fortune & fame
with existential potential of runnin' the game,
but it the greedy of the whitey at the top of my frame that's
Blurrin' my art piece, makin' it Weak see
makin' it watered down
Dilutin' my funky sound
But it's all you need when to be in this weak society
Powder puffy rock star dumb
Keepin' people stupid and dumb
Do the rock star ooh
Do the rock star hey
Shhot up some heroin
Snort some cocain
Smash your guitar
Wreck a Jet plane
With a short gunto your brain
For the price of fame like Kurt Cobain

Doin' the rock star main
Color meant nothing to me
But now I just can't escape
From the rains that drive me ape
of their white fear through the television in my eyes in my ears
Racism !Separation ! Media !
So I guess you can say I'm an angry brotha
Can't play my music 'cause of barrier of color
Deep in debt with a seven record set
Videos and funky shows but no one knows
The major pain and misery of bein' radical
Speakin' of what you feel in a world that's sad and dull
But the rock stars got the money and the fuck fuck right
action lights and plane flights
Drugs and press
But in reality, it's a lot less to do the rock star oooh.
