lyrics

Verse 1:

Yo, I noted this rhyme as I focused my mind
Noticed it's time for revolution so I loaded the nine
I hear cops talk, but I know that they're lying
Convertible flying down the block as I walk to the train
My voice to the mic is like thoughts to brain
Cats lost in the fame, off the cost of their chain
I constantly rain down flames like a meteor
And read to you facts you won't hear in the media
'Cause it's controlled by the corporations
It's time for the orchestration and rise of workers' nations
Or more starvation and inequality is what lies ahead
And if at first we don't succeed then we'll rise again
Yea, your propaganda is not phasing me
An equal day's pay to me is still wage slavery
Until the days when we control what we making
The rulers will take it, our souls will be vacant

Chorus:

Dedicated to the revolutionary lifestyle
Run up in the power plant put their lights out
Molotov cocktails, to the White House
Yo it's time to make a move, when?
Right now

Dedicated to the revolutionary lifestyle
Run up in the power plant put their lights out
Molotov cocktails, to the White House
Yo it's time to make a move, when?
Right now

Verse 2:

I study Karl Marx, in the parks after dark
By candle light, getting spied on by satellites
'Cause the government's watching you
So you better watch what they put in those shots at the hospital
Try to make it impossible to be overthrown
With the global sewn, FBI tap your mobile phone
CIA up in your crib when you're not at home
Prisoners of a war that we're living in
Read your email? Shit, they invented the internet
How you figure that they work for the people?
Working class, ruling class, never equal
There's a few in command that's ruling the land
So who's gonna stand for our liberation?
Lead the world in murders each year in the killer nation
America eats its youth, I speak the truth
Hoping that I'm reaching you

(Chorus)
