Know Your Enemy – Rage Against The Machine!

Huh! Yeah! We’re coming back then with another bombtrack
Think ya know what it’s all about. Huh!
Hey yo, so check this out. Yeah!
Know your enemy! Come on!

Born with insight and a raised fist
A witness to the slit wrist, that’s with
We move into ’92, still in a room without a view
Ya got to know, ya got to know
That when I say go, go, go
Amp up and amplify, defy
I’m a brother with a furious mind
Action must be taken
We don’t need the key, we’ll break in

Something must be done
About vengeance, a badge and a gun
‘Cause I’ll rip the mike, rip the stage, rip the system
I was born to rage against ’em

Fist in ya face, in the place
And I’ll drop the style clearly
Know your enemy, know your enemy! Yeah!

Hey yo, and dick with this. Uggh!
Word is born, fight the war, fuck the norm
Now I got no patience, so sick of complacence
With the D the E the F the I the A the N the C the E
Mind of a revolutionary, so clear the lane
The finger to the land of the chains
What? The land of the free?
Whoever told you that is your enemy?

Now something must be done
About vengeance, a badge and a gun
‘Cause I’ll rip the mike, rip the stage, rip the system
I was born to rage against ’em

Now action must be taken
We don’t need the key, we’ll break in

I’ve got no patience now
So sick of complacence now
I’ve got no patience now
So sick of complacence now
Sick of sick of sick of sick of you
Time has come to pay
Know your enemy!

Solo

Come on! Yes I know my enemies
They’re the teachers who taught me to fight me
Compromise, conformity, assimilation, submission
Ignorance, hypocrisy, brutality, the elite
