Rage Against The Machine - Wake up

 

 



Come on!

Uggh!

Come on, 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 hypocrisy



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 calm

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



Yeah!



Yeah, back in this...

Wit' poetry, my mind I flex

Flip like Wilson, vocals never lackin' dat finesse

Whadda I got to, whadda I got to do to wake ya up

To shake ya up, to break the structure up

'Cause blood still flows in the gutter

I'm like takin' photos

Mad boy kicks open the shutter

Set the groove

Then stick and move like I was Cassius

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 metaphors



Networks at work, keepin' people calm

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



Uggh!

What was the price on his head?

What was the price on his head!



I think I heard a shot (5 times)

I think I heard, I think I heard a shot



Background: 'Black nationalism'

'He may be a real contender for this position should he

abandon his supposed obediance to white liberal doctrine

of non-violence...and embrace black nationalism'

'Through counter-intelligence it should be possible to

pinpoint potential trouble-makers...'

'And neutralise them'



Wake up! Wake up! Wake up! Wake up!

Wake up! Wake up! Wake up! Wake up!



Spoken: "How long? Not long, 'cause

what you reap is what you sow."
