Scroll lower for the song's lyrics.

Dphrepaulezz was born in western Massachusetts, the eighth of fifteen children. His father was a deeply religious Somali Muslim who, Dphrepaulezz recalls, had "a lot of rules" for his children. Dphrepaulezz and his family relocated to Oakland, California, when he was 12 years old. He began selling drugs as a teenager in Oakland, telling the Guardian, "We were all selling drugs, man. We all carried pistols. There was a crack epidemic. [....] I was the kind of kid who would sell fake weed [...]. Sometimes I would use tea." He became inspired to teach himself how to play music after listening to Prince's album Dirty Mind and hearing that Prince was a self-taught musician. He learned to play music by sneaking into music classrooms at the University of California Berkeley despite not being a student there. (bio here)

 lyrics
Americans pills will wreck and deal
American pills will wreck and kill
Oh, men are reaping in a twitching hand
The 50-foot whole of addiction men
Do you, do you understand?
Let's break out these chains
Let's burn it down
Let's break out these chains
Let's burn it down
Let's break out these chains
Let's burn it down
Let's break out these chains
Let's burn it down
No no no, this shoving liberty
She wanted everything that he did not have
And If I keep writing everything I say
American pills will wreck and kill, yes they will
Break out these chains, let's burn it down
Let's break out these chains
Let's burn it down
Let's break out these chains
Let's burn it down
Let's break out these chains
Let's burn it down
Caged them on a with a witting hand
Caged them on a with a winning hand
People get caught on a needless spell
Oh, they keep buying everything they sell
Break out these chains, let's burn it down
Let's break out these chains
Let's burn it down
Let's break out these chains
Let's burn it down
Let's break out these chains
Let's burn it down
