Rage Against The Machine
In the right light, study becomes
But the system that dissed us
Teaches us to read and write

So - called facts are fraud
They want us to allege and pledge
And bow down to their God
Lost the culture, the culture lost
Spun our minds and through time
Ignorance has taken over
We gotta take the power back
Bam, here's the plan
Mother fuck Uncle Sam
Step back, I know who I am
Raise up your ear, I'll drop the
style and clear
It's the beats and the lyrics they fear
The rage is relentless
We need a movement with a quickness
You are the witness of change
And to counteract
We gotta take the power back

We gotta take the power back
We gotta take the power back

The present curriculums
I put my fist in 'em
Eurocentric every last one of 'em
See right through the red, white and
blue disguise
With lecture, I puncture the
structure of lies
Installed in our minds and
To hold us back
We've got to take it back
'Cause holes in our spirit are
causin' tears and fears
One-sided stories for years and
years and years
I'm inferior? Who's inferior?
Yea, we needa to check the interior
Of the system who cares about only
one culture
And that is why

We gotta take the power back


The teacher stands in front of the
But the lesson plan he can't recall
The student's eyes don't perceive
the lies
Bouncing off every fucking wall
His composure is well kept
I guess he fears playing the fool
The complacent students sit and
listen to the
Bullshit that he learned in school

Europe ain't my rope to swing on
Can't learn a thing from it
Yet we hang from it
Gotta get it, gotta get it together
Like the mother fuckin' weathermen
To expose and close the doors on
those who try
To strangle and mangle the truth
'Cause the circle of hatred
continues unless we react
We gotta take the power back


No more lies
