lyrics

i look around me, and I cower
I see people in shambles and people in power,
a mass in the gutter
upperclass has devoured
the chances of getting out are getting fewer by the hour
in this day and age we're made thralls and payed slaves
minister smiles and displays his rape face
work will free you,
thats how you speak
tell the truth bitch,
cuz thats newspeak

every second at work our time is wasted every penny we earn times a thousand is
housed away in the pockets of big shots,
and your house will never be worth half of his wrist watch
the older i grow the more that i get caged,
focus is growing on needing to get payed
they're feeding me with sick shit in sick ways
a pawn playing a planned part in a sick game
soon enough though, times will be changing
time to break free from all these chains and raise our fists at the deranged lies and
keep our eyes on the prize: uprising

I see the backlash
I see gunners
i see before me sight of wonder
I see the final fight, the bright thunder
I'm finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel

things aint changed up on my block
i still hold weight with the ones I got
i still paint the walls and I still throw rocks
But I aint do shit if I aint got caught
Never thought I'd feel like this right now
Bobby said I really need a wish right now
I need six clips and a spliff right now
spit at the politics empty the clip right down

The working class are no schemers
they don't want to seem like bad people
the few who still believe we're all equal
wouldn't ever dream of doing something illegal
who wrote law hm? and who decides your rights
who cuts the trees down plants the ideals?
you should have money; fail its your fault
and the people with power
pity they're all bought
stop paying taxes start raising racket
they've got the papers but we've got the hatchets
who allows them? Show them who's boss,
what we are without them, cuz what are they without us?
strike deep into the heart of the problems
sometimes violence is the only way to solve them
see them screaming like stuck pigs
revolution is legal if succeeds
so arm the weak and arm the homeless
arm the nurses its time to purge this world of scourges, s
shareholders, high rollers, the pain in your back
they plan to strain in fact until it finally cracks
but now comes the time were we reign at last
the capitalist plan was never made to last
this whole game of egoistic crap
damn i'd really like to see this shit collapse

things aint changed up on my block i still hold weight with the ones I got
i still paint the walls and I still throw rocks
But I aint do shit if I aint got caught
Never thought I'd feel like this right now
Bobby said I really need a wish right now
I need six clips and a spliff right now
spit at the politics empty the clip right down to the last bullet.
