Rage Against The Machine - Township Rebellion lyrics

> Lyricspedia > Lyrics Search > Rage Against The Machine > Township Rebellion >
Album: Rage Against The Machine (1992)

Rebel, rebel & yell
´Cause our people still dwell in hell
Locked in a cell
Yes, the structure´s a cell
Mad is the story I tell
How long can we wait?
C´mon, seein´ what´s at stake
Action for reaction
If your mind´s in a somewhat complacent state
Get a check up
This is a stick up
Our freedom or your life
Lord, I wish I could be peacful
But there can be no sequel

Now freedom must be fundamental
In Johannesburg or South Central
On the mic, ´cause someone should tell ´em
To kick in the township rebellion

Yea, what about that sucker?

Yea, so you thought you could get with the hardlines
That fill your mind
Thoughts, battles fought
And lessons taught
Yes I will display the fitness
Then flip like a gymnast
Raise my fist & resist
Asleep, though we stand in the midst
Of the war
Have got to get mine
Have got to get more
Keepin´ the mic warm against the norm
´Cause what does it offer me?
I think often it isn´thin´ but a coffin

Have got to get wreck
´Until our necks never swing on a rope
From here to the cape of no hope

Now freedom must be fundamental
In Johannesburg or South Central
On the mic, ´cause someone should tell ´em
To kick in the township rebellion

Why stand on a silent platform?
Fight the war, f*ck the norm (4 times)

(Guitar solo)

Why stand on a silent platform?
Fight the war, f*ck the norm (4 times)

What´s it going to take?
Euuurrrggghhhhh!

Shackle their minds when they are bent on the cross
When ignorance reigns, life´s lost
Shackle their minds when they are left on the cross
When ignorance reigns, life´s lost
Shackled our minds when we are bent on the cross
When ignorance reigns, life´s lost
Shackled our minds when we are left on the cross
When ignorance reigns, life´s lost, lost, lost!

Shackle your minds & you are left on the cross!
When ignorance reigns, life´s lost!
Just shackle your minds when you are bent on the cross!
When ignorance reigns, life´s lost, lost!

Why stand on a silent platform?
Fight the war, f*ck the norm (4 times)
