Hello/Goodbye (Uncool)

Hello/Goodbye (Uncool)

Lupe Fiasco (Ft. UNKLE)

This song tells us about a world where everyone lives in terror and fear and the air is so dangerous the citizens are told, “Not to breathe the air.” And how the government can easily take a person that has been loyal to them, and quickly turn them into a national threat just to make the public feel safe when he is killed.
It isn’t just a fantasy world. In America, we seem to thrive off of what the media tells us, and the media tells us about what we should fear. Y2k, africanized killer bees, sharks, hurricanes, razor blades in candy, the black guy down the street… We’re kept in a state of fear and paranoia and corralled around like sheep.
