RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE


Township Rebellion Lyrics

Rebel, rebel and 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?
Come on, 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 peaceful 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

Yeah, what about that sucker?

Yeah, so you thought you could
Get with the hard lines that fill your mind thoughts
Battles fought and lessons taught
Yes, I'll display the fitness
Then flip like a gymnast

Raise my fist and resist
Asleep, though we stand in the midst of a war
Gotta get mine, gotta get more
Keepin' the mic warm against the norm
'Cause what does it offer me?

I think often it's nothin' but a coffin
Gotta get wreck till 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, fuck the norm
Why stand on a silent platform?
Fight the war, fuck the norm

Why stand on a silent platform?
Fight the war, fuck the norm
Why stand on a silent platform?
Fight the war, fuck the norm

Why stand on a silent platform?
Fight the war, fuck the norm
Why stand on a silent platform?
Fight the war, fuck the norm

Why stand on a silent platform?
Fight the war, fuck the norm
Why stand on a silent platform?
Fight the war, fuck the norm

What's it gonna take?

Shackle their minds when they're bent on the cross
When ignorance reigns, life is lost
Shackle their minds when they're left on the cross
When ignorance reigns, life is lost

Shackle their minds when we're bent on the cross
When ignorance reigns, life is lost
Shackle their minds when we're left on the cross
When ignorance reigns, life is lost, lost, lost

Shackle your minds and you're left on the cross
When ignorance reigns, life is lost
Just shackle your minds when you're bent on the cross
When ignorance reigns, life is lost, lost

Why stand on a silent platform?
Fight the war, fuck the norm
Why stand on a silent platform?
Fight the war, fuck the norm

Why stand on a silent platform?
Fight the war, fuck the norm
Why stand on a silent platform?
Fight the war, fuck the norm
