lyrics

take what’s not profound, turn it around
make it sound like it is.
it’s just like the news, lies become the truth
just because they say so.

there’s a spider on the tree outside
there’s a spider on the tree outside
there’s a spider on the tree
there’s a spider on the
a spider on the
Spider on the tree outside.
(dance)

take a simple phrase, you can create a craze
you make the public believe.
black men locked in jails because the news folk say
that they’re responsible for all the crime.

someone’s programmed the youth, made them think it is cool
to disrespect each other.
glamorized ghettos, make them think they won’t grow old
don’t need no knowledge cuz they’re going pro.

take what’s not the truth, put it in reality shows
if they see it they’ll believe.
all just an excuse to withhold the truth
that that life is fiction.

chorus

with the use of image, they rewrite history
to make it look so pretty
they market they facades, put it up on movies screens
to make the public believe.

but some people know the truth
and when they try to spread it through
it seems the others try and stop them.
shoot down their videos, saying we don’t need to know
if you don’t speak it then it won’t exist.

take what’s not profound, turn it around
make it seem like it is.
it’s just like the news, lies become the truth
just because they say so.

there’s no spider on the tree outside
there’s no spider on the tree outside
there’s no spider on the tree
there’s no spider on the
no spider on the
Spider on the tree outside.
(dance)
