Rage Against The Machine
Rebel, rebel and yell
'Cause our people still dwell in
Locked in a cell
Yes, the structure's a cell
Mad is the story I tell
How long can we wait
Come on, seein' what's at stake
Action for reaction
If your mind's in a somewhat
complacent state
Get a check-up
This is a stick-up
Our freedom or your life
I wish I could be peaceful
But there can be no sequel

Now freedom must be fundamental
In Johannesburg or South Central
On the mic, 'cause someone should
tell 'em
To kick in the township rebellion

Yea, so you thought you could get
with the hardlines
That fill your mind
The thoughts, battles fought
And lessons taught
And I'll display the fitness
And flip like a gymnast
Raise my fist and resist
Asleep, though we stand in the midst
Of a war
Gotta get mine
Gotta get more
Keepin' the mic warm against the
'Cause what does it offer me
I think often it's nothin' but a

Gotta get wreck

'Til our necks never swing on a rope
From here to the cape of no hope


Why stand
On a silent platform
Fight the war
Fuck the norm
