This song may sound familiar. Paris lifted the second verse from the masters for the song "Throwyahandzup" with Dead Prez and T-K.A.S.H. on the album Hard Truth Soldiers Volume 1. The last lines of the verse were quoted in the Pop Matters review of that album (online at www.popmatters.com/pm/review/various_artists_hard_truth_soldiers_vol_1 )


Let's rock.
Yo, check it.

Verse 1:

Microphones get blown to pieces
Every piece of art that I drop is like Mona Lisa
Don't want to see no Hollywood in the women
Don't ever follow them
Hollow head chickens getting their lips shot up with collagen
Slip a cartridge in, I'm ready for the worst
With an automatic weapon that off in steady bursts
Every verse I release is aimed at hurting the beast
Why the wages keep falling while the work is increased
No justice to no peace, or feasts
For the rich while we're starving
From Republica Dominicana, the Philippines to Harlem
A guerrilla sees a problem and takes it in his own hands
Grown man taking control of his own land
Just being responsible, we've got a lot to do
First step, open up the hospitals and make it possible
For all to receive health care, without an obstacle
All we've got to do is make a move, so what's stopping you?


Make a move (We ain't got nothing to loose)
Make a move (We ain't got nothing to loose)
So make a move (We ain't got nothing to loose)
Make a move (We ain't got nothing to loose but our chains)

Make a move (We ain't got nothing to loose)
Make a move (We ain't got nothing to loose)
Make a move (We ain't got nothing to loose)
So make a move (We ain't got nothing to loose but our chains)

Verse 2:

Peace, rice and beans get ate up and swallowed quick
Deal with politics using nickle plated hollow tips
Now see if you can follow this, affecting all of us
Dwelling in hell ask and I'll tell exactly how hot it is
We deal with wage slavery until the day when we abolish it
Capitalism is a prison no matter which name you calling it
Revolution is coming, get involved with it, form a faction
Join a union, start a people's army, forms of action
A war of classes, the system we fitting to smash it
Don't be scared to make a move, that's why we've never had shit
Imagine, food for everybody, no homeless
And we're owning the full value of what we making
So fuck debating, liberation is our motivation
We unite worldwide saying no to nations
No divisions, now we're going to make our own decisions
Fuck politicians and living in poor conditions


Verse 3:

Counterrevolutionaries change or get put to bed
You prove deadly like drinking out of cups of lead
Catch a busted head trying to go against the movement
All we're trying to do is, make the people equal
How could you oppose this, yo are you evil?
Why do you need so much when so many have got zero
We don't need a hero, our strength lies in unity
Unleash the force of the world's working community
Soon to be the rulers and controllers of our destiny
Together we'll overcome all armies and their weaponry
When will we combine is my only line of questioning
The more threatening the system will get until we hit them back
Get the gist of that? This is fact, it ain't just a rap
Get the map, and make moves international
Guerrilla war, hit from out of the trees like an assassin do
Attacking you, rich ruling class, tired of asking you
