    "Nighttrain [Album Version]" Lyrics

    Public Enemy

    Land of the free
    But the skin I'm in identifies me
    So the people around me
    Energize me
    Callin' all aboard this train ride
    Talkin' 'bout raw hardcore
    Leavin' frauds on the outside
    But the bad thing is anyone can ride the train
    And the reason
    For that is 'cause we look the same
    Lookin' all around at my so called friend
    Light skin to the brown

    The black
    Here we go again
    Homey over there knows Keith an
    But he be thiefin'
    I don't trust him
    Rather bust 'em
    Up out goes his hand and I cough
    He once stole from me
    Yeah I want to cut it off
    The black thing is a ride I call the nighttrain
    It rides the good and the bad
    We call the monkey trained
    Trained to attack the black it's true
    'Cause some of them look just like you
    Stayin' on the scene
    Sittin' on the train
    See all the faces
    Look about the same

    There go the sellout who's takin' a ride like Cargo
    'Cause he deal
    The keys from Key Largo
    Runnin' Nat narcotic
    By George he got it
    Takin' makin' the G erotic
    And the fiends they scheme
    So he can put 'em down
    But his method is wreck 'em
    Put 'em in tha ground
    Got tha nerve as hell
    To yell brother man
    He ain't black man
    Known to murder his own
    Traitor on the phone
    Ridin' the train
    Self-hater trained
    To sell pain

    The master's toy
    Little boy
    Hard to avoid he look wit' it but he null 'n' void
    'Cause he ridin' the train you think he down for the cause
    'Cause his face looks just like yours
    More of the same insane who sayin'
    Like flowin' like night train
    Runnin' the pain of the black reign
    You look, you laugh
    You doubt and go out
    And I'm gone
    But the bass goes on
    To talk the talk, but walk the walk
    The king of New York
    Crack a lack attack the black
    To crack the back
    Once again I test a friend wit' sincerity
    Or consider him an enemy
    Who am I to tell a lie
    Rather push da bush
    Hope da cracker get crushed
    I'm rollin' wit' rush
    Leader of the bum rush
    Russian I ain't
    Spreadin' like paint
    Lookin' at the put I got
    And its kickin'
    But it ain't chicken
    But it's livin' for a city
    So sick 'n' tired
    Of a scene buckwild, piled in a file
    Senile or Chile
    They said it never been no worser
    Than this, I'm on the night train
    They hope ya don't miss it
    Give ya what dey gotta give you just go
    You mustn't just put your
    Trust in every brother yo
    Some don't give a damn
    'Cause they the other man
    Worse than a bomb
    Posin' as Uncle Toms
    Disgracin' the race
    Blowin' up
    The whole crew
    Wit' some of them lookin'
    Just like you
