ONE DAY AS A LION


One Day As A Lion Lyrics

Blood - soaked - earth - that you call - home
Blood - soaked - earth - that you call - home

Close your eyes but don't sleep
We comin' like peoples army
For the people who can't eat
Who work with no sleep
For the child with no shoes on their feet
A generation who flash heat
Who roll up on the banks for their cash, see
Are the criminal
You got the nerve to ask me
Tear mics 'till my voice get raspy
Faced flame for five centuries
And if L.A. were Baghdad we'd be Iraqi
With our straps in the back seat
Next to a general tied up with shit in his khakis
Best leave my mic alone, I'm full grown
And I'm off to the Green Zone
Leave my mic alone, I'm full grown
And I'm off to the Green Zone

After dark my city's a fuse
After dark my city's a fuse
One day - I say - today - we live as a lion
After dark my city's a fuse
After dark my city's a fuse
One day - I say - today - we live as a lion

Blood - soaked - earth - that you call - home

I heard this cat got life in the pen
Crossin' sand in the back of a truck bed
Twelve deep, heard sirens and lights red
Was smacked on his dome with the club of a white fed
No food no water no rights read
He came north to keep his seeds and his wife fed
In the middle of the darkest night bled
Stepped to the law and said:
"You a minuteman? Wait a minute, man"
Talk like that might limit your life span

After dark my city's a fuse
One day - I say - today - we live as a lion
After dark my city's a fuse
After dark my city's a fuse
One day - I say - today - we live as a lion

And when our cubs grow
We'll show you what war is good for
And when our cubs grow
We'll show you what war is good for
And when our cubs grow
We'll show you what war is good for
And when our cubs grow
We'll show you what war is good for
And when our cubs grow
We'll show you what war is good for
And when our cubs grow
We'll show you what war is good for
