Album: Rage Against The Machine (1992)

Crack the music up...



Yea, the movement´s in motion
With mass militant poetry
Now check this out...


In the right light, study becomes insight
But the system that dissed us teaches us to read & write
So-called facts are fraud
They want us to allege & pledge and
Bow down into their god
Lost the culture, the culture lost
Spun our minds & through time
Ignorance has taken over
Yo, We´ve got to take the power back
Bam, here is the plan
Mother f*ck uncle sam
Step back i know who i´m
Raise up your ear, i will drop the style & clear
It is the beats & the lyrics they fear
The rage is relentless
We need a movement with a quickness
You´re the witness of change & to counteract
We´ve got to take the power back


We´ve got to take the power back
Come on! Come on!
We´ve got to take the power back

The present curriculum
I put my fist in ´em
Eeurocentric every last one of ´em
See right through the red, white & blue disguise
With lecture i puncture the structure of lies
Installed in our minds & attempting to hold us back
We have got to take it back
´Cause holes in our spirit are causin tears & fears
One-sided stories for yeahrs & yeahrs & yeahrs
I am inferior? who has inferior?
Yea, you needa check the interior
Of the system who cares about only one culture
And that´s why
We´ve got to take the power back


Hey yo check,
We are going to have to break it, break it, break it down
Awww shit!
And like this...uggh!
Come on!
Bring it back the other way!

The teacher stands in front of the class
But the lesson plan he can not recall
The students eyes dont perceive the lies
Bouncing off every f*cking wall
His compusure is well kept
I guess he fears playing the fool
The complacent students sit & listen to the bullshit
That he learned in school

Europe, ain´t my rope to swing on
Can´t learn a thing from it
Yet we hang from it
Have got to get it, have got to get it together then
Like the motherf*cking weathermen
To expose & close the doors on those who try
To strangle & mangle the truth
´Cause the circle of hatred continues unless we react
We´ve got to take the power back


Take it back y´all, take it back, take it back, take it back y´all, Come on (x2)
