Both lines go together: "Ain't no smilin' faces lyin' to the races." The word "races" here refers to minority races, specifically the African-American race. (See, for example, "Race Records .")

The phrase "smilin' faces" in this context refers to the duplicitous nature of the white establishment, proverbially showing a friendly face to African-Americans while undermining them behind their back. (See also: "Smiling Faces Sometimes ," a 1971 hit by the Undisputed Truth.)
just sock it to me is a phrase that I understand to mean, just do it, gimme some more, bring it, etc.

Lyin to the races - most songs that rise up out of field hollers, spirituals and gospel tend to refer to freedom from slavery/oppression - as a black race. So - no smiling faces (fake smiles) lyin' to the races (we respect your race).

The song is talking about music transitioning you to another level away from the cards of the world. Listen with an open mind. It reaches beyond race relations. Its not about Blacks against White or the oposite.
It's a song about "HEAVEN", or at least that's the way I hear it. Sing it with SOUL and put your hands in the air.... <3
To deceive a race into believing that there is a place called heaven or hell!
