Soundtracks: Rage, Riots, Revolution

Burnin‘ in no particular order:

„Tell me what you would do with no phone or pagers
No Kinkos, no Fed Ex and no ATMs
What you gone do when the police state vegin
Well it already began but I guess it depends on what’s really going on
what’s happening, huh
Military target practicing
They finna write another patriot act again
The days is short the nights is long
The fight goes on
The pistol and the pipes are drawn

The middle of the night
We fight like barbarians
In sight of the former might
You might think that it’s a waste
Of our time
And I think you would be right
Till he drop that rhyme“

„This morning I woke up in a curfew
O god, I was a prisoner, too – yeah
Could not recognize the faces standing over me
They were all dressed in uniforms of brutality. eh!
How many rivers do we have to cross
Before we can talk to the boss? eh!
All that we got, it seems we have lost
We must have really paid the cost“

„I got a letter from the government
The other day
Opened it and read it
It said they were suckers
They wanted me for their army or whatever
Picture me givin‘ a damn, I said never
Here is a land that never gave a damn
About a brother like myself
Because I never did
I wasn’t wit‘ it, but just that very minute…
It occurred to me
The suckers had authority
[…] Public enemy servin‘ time, they drew the line y’all
They criticize me for some crime“

„It’s a start, a work of art
To revolutionize make a change nothin’s strange
People, people we are the same
No we’re not the same
Cause we don’t know the game
What we need is awareness, we can’t get careless
You say what is this?
My beloved lets get down to business
Mental self defensive fitness
(Yo) bum rush the show
You gotta go for what you know
Make everybody see, in order to fight the powers that be
Lemme hear you say…
Fight the Power“

„And burn
Like fire
Burn like fire in Cairo
Burn like fire
