"Peace without justice is tyranny, neutrality in the face of oppression is complicity, and hope without action is apathy…”

lyrics

"Dare to Struggle"

[Intro]
Yo...
Rey Holliday on the beat
Thought Crime Collective in your ears

[Hook: Northern Draw]
We All Got Our Dreams
All Got Families
Hate, Love, Fear, and Need
We All Die and Bleed
We All Got Our Dreams
We All Fight and Scheme
Love, Hate, Fear, and Need
We all die and bleed (x2)

[Verse 1: Strife]
Life's a daring adventure
Or it's nothing at all
Don’t be scared
Or apprehensive
Grab the bull by the horns
Take risks
I’m on the offensive
Against those living large
While children starve
The system scars
Fight back
Like theres no tomorrow
Melt the prison bars
Find maps
Follow the hidden stars
Keep ya head up
Stand tall
The time has risen, ya’ll
Our plans will make the man fall
Make demands
This is your call to arms
Take chances
And turn your life to beautiful art
Ignite musical sparks
That burn down this gilded prison
Take courage to heart
And insist on better living conditions
Actualizing potentials
Amidst a sea of indifference
Don’t be ruled from your room at a distance
Consumed by big business
Your too strong to give in
Smash television wombs
That stole you vision
Left you lost
You’re better than that mission
Don’t allow yourselves to be farmed
Do more than get by
Despite the pain
All of us should swarm
Nows the best time
To rearrange the game
and flip the house of cards

[Hook: Northern Draw]
We All Got Our Dreams
All Got Families
Hate, Love, Fear, and Need
We All Die and Bleed
We All Got Our Dreams
We All Fight and Scheme
Love, Hate, Fear, and Need
We all die and bleed (x2)

[Verse 2: Strife]
Dare to care
or indifference will haunt you
Share with others who dare to wander
Let no one treat you like a number
I’ll never be conquered
No potential squandered
They’re the predators
We’re the prey
So it's time hunt the hunters
Wake the fuck up from your slumber
Tired of waiting for summer
To do what we wanna
Ya killing time
I’ll be the first-responders
I see the big picture
So call me a long distance runner
Tearing the whole system asunder
Don’t support pillage and plunder
Lift the boot heel your necks under
That keeps us estranged from one another
Get back into the fray
Or be a consumer goner
Obey the rich till your old and grey
That’s a foolish mantra
Don’t cave to sordid sponsors
Plunge the blade into this corporate monster

[Hook: Northern Draw]
We All Got Our Dreams
All Got Families
Hate, Love, Fear, and Need
We All Die and Bleed
We All Got Our Dreams
We All Fight and Scheme
Love, Hate, Fear, and Need
We all die and bleed (x2)

[Verse 3: Strife]
How can a plant grow if you don’t nurture it
How can we overcome the feelings of worthlessness
Searching for meaning in the merciless pit, fiendin'
For more than forfeited dreams and a death-wish
How can the wound heal if ya don’t address it
I’ll open your heart
Reveal the essence
To transcend the present
See the past
Glimpse the future
Speak your vision
Manifest it
Free to grasp
the roots of class collision
A rebel perspective
Don't settle for concessions
You swallowing bad medicine
I’m taking ya’ll on an exodus
Away from you fall off the precipice
Most aim to be respectable
That'll turn you to a vegetable
Letting fear get the best of you
Leaves ya readily digestable
I’m gritty and irrepressible
Witty and unpredictable
A chess professional
Cause conflicts inevitable
Know my enemies move ahead of em
and throw royalty off they pedestals
