Rage Against The Machine
Although ya try to discredit
Ya still never edit
The needle, I'll thread it
Radically poetic
Standin' with the fury that they had
in '66

And like E-Double, I'm mad
Still knee-deep in the system's. shit
Hoover, he was a body remover
I'll give ya a dose
But it'll never come close
To the rage built up inside of me
Fist in the air, in the land of

Movements come and movements go
Leaders speak, movements cease
When their heads are flown
'Cause all these punks
Got bullets in their heads
Departments of police, the judges,
the feds
Networks at work, keepin' people

You know they went after King
When he spoke out on Vietnam
He turned the power to the have-nots
And then came the shot

Wit' poetry, my mind I flex
Flip like Wilson, vocals never
lackin' dat finesse
Whadda I have to do to wake ya up
To shake ya up, to break the
structure up
'Cause blood still flows in the
I'm like takin' photos
Mad boy kicks open the shutter
Set the groove
Then stick and move like I was
Rep the stutter step
Then bomb a left upon the fascists
Yea, the several federal men
Who pulled schemes on the dream
And put it to an end

Ya better beware
Of retribution with mind war
20/20 visions and murals with

The networks at work, keepin' people
Ya know they murdered X
And tried to blame it on Islam
He turned the power to the have-nots
And then came the shot

What was the price on his head
