HOH

about

Akrobatik's new single "HoH" takes an in-depth look at life in America in 2020, with a particular focus on the nation's current political climate. Likening the USA to a "House of Horrors", the track itself has a horror movie-themed beat (produced by ZMY DaBeat) that sets the grim tone of our reality here in the States during these unprecedented times.

lyrics

Man....
They got everybody.. locked up in their cribs
Unmarked federal agents whisking people away and shit..
It's like a real haunted house..some nightmare shit
Some Freddy Kreuger shit, man... what the fuck!?

For this one I'll probably get a drone at my window
When all Im doin is smoking some indica
Only weapon that I'm holding is a pen to flex my 1st Amendment rights, aight?
I'm even spitting at a frantic pace living in this manic place
Man, it takes a lot of damn mistakes to make a planet break
Highest office in the land got a rogue candidate
And his clan's saying they won't be replaced
From the tiki torches and Ouija boards
They're claiming everything they're doing is to please the Lord
But that's looking at it oddly, it's hardly Godly
When you do us like George Floyd or Ahmaud Aubery
Nah, we pulled the curtain back and we see you hurting
Black, brown white people and asians
They wanna do us all and the reason's amazing
To build empires on our backs and call themselves made men
Fuck out of here thats truly wack
All that Hollywood movie crap is a booby trap
To distract us from the facts of the matter
Feds come around and attack and we scatter
This is the place of fables, this is the House of Seven Gables
With a joker in charge of getting it stable
They're ready for their dinner and they're setting the table
Then they're jetting to the cable news station
To get us fighting about whose nation it is
Meanwhile priests are raping the kids
And a non-violent offender's facing a bid
Because he's homeless and got caught taking a piss
This is one of history's craziest ages
Separate families! Put the babies in cages!
Outrageous! The House of No Compassion
Cry for help you might get your skull bashed in

Welcome to the House of Horrors
The modern day Sodom and Gomorrah
We can expect much more of the shit show
Tore up floor up from the get-go

Welcome to the House of Horrors
Hey, yo - who boarded my doors up?!
Nobody can afford any more of this shit show
Tore up from the floor up from the get go

Cronie-ism, phony wisdom - and we all gonna be victims
We all know he should be lonely, but he's got his homies with him
Nepotism - never hidden - it's live on television
If it was you or me I guarantee we would be lead to prison
Look! It's Freddy Kreuger and Michael Myers
Trailed by a steady crew of psycho liars
They've got the people ready to light more fires
Because we can't trust what the news cycles supply us
Don't fall down that ramp champ
You wouldn't wanna show off that Vladimir Putin tramp-stamp
Your vitriol gets your camp amped
But it's bullshit! - We all know you're about as bright as a damp lamp
...so we get the daily Kayleigh McEnany
I've got something she can address, guess - its black and veiny
The heart of your master - it pumps coal
You dumb troll its too late to save Trump's soul
Man, the world's spinning out of control
Want to catch a devil just follow where the funds go
Evangelists cant handle this
They don't want him, but they're scared to abandon ship
Unaware they're the ones being tested
Tell him good riddance this ain't about religion
This is Crips and Bloods with fancier duds
They just hide their hands so we can't see the blood
But they can't hide from their track record
All it takes is a little bit of fact checking
I've been qualified - calling out all the lies
And the bullshit that's got everybody horrified

Welcome to the House of Horrors
The modern day Sodom and Gomorrah
We can expect much more of the shit show
Tore up floor up from the get-go
Welcome to the House of Horrors
Hey yo who boarded my doors up?!
Nobody can afford any more of this shit show
Tore up from the floor up from the get go

I thought the bad guy was supposed to wear the mask...
I thought the bad guy was supposed to wear the mask...
What's going on?
Where are we?
