“You’re angry about people dressed in black burning banks and breaking windows? Just wait till your hear about the people dressed in suits burning countries and breaking people.”

lyrics

"Insurrection"

Verse 1:

Born into shit,
I’m sworn to resist,
Always been a thorn in the side of Big Biz,
We can’t afford to submit, time to Think big…
Take over ya workplace, hand ya boss a pink slip
Told us we're all pre-rich
i believed em, till the sherriff came to evict
and my debts eclipsed, my right to exist, i've seen shit
Protests been villianized, I mean it,
it’s getting late
the states militarized, plain as day
free speech ain’t free, the cost is a cage
speak up- get framed and locked away
maybe lost in the rat race maze
but it’s not too late,
I’ve lived under the gun,
and I’ve lived under strain
Still Driven to overcome the hunger pains
while some brains get branded and tongues get trained
I Reveal the puppeteers who fund campaigns
See the bank in flames will burn gepetto’s strings
Lemme explain the game and set it straight
we don’t stop em now, how can we see a better day?
In this free market state,
control breeds hate
wall street the target
let’s clear the slate
test ya free-will, time to wrestle fate
Manifest with skills, don’t just speculate
We’re not vassals or slaves
Grab tha torch and storm the castles gates

Verse 2:

I’ll bring it to ya face cause
Talk is cheap
Mean what you say,
Say what you mean
Our Love & Rage
We’ll take it to the streets
The owners won’t let us dream
We won’t let em sleep
I’m in ya corner
Best believe
I gotcha back
Til we’re wild and free
Launch attacks
Till we get what we need
Don the black mask
The math doesn’t add up
That’s a haunting fact
Raid the rich
take the sponsors cash
we’re coming for the king
now the pawns have gats (x2)

Bridge

Tip the scales
Of robber-baron policy
Pistol sales can
Flip the script of inequality

Verse 3a

Get off your knees
the foods under lock and key
Soon charged you for clean air to breathe
It’s Manufactured scarcity
we make ends meet precariously
you got the match, (huh.)
I got the kerosene
Now we baring our teeth
And sharing their feast
I’m daring to get free
They’ll never break me,
I ain’t a rat
chasing fast cheese
Manipulation leads to catastrophe
Gentrification is dastardly
Don’t accept it passively,
That’s not how it has to be
Blast with me,
Turn ya life to a masterpiece
Learn from trouble strife and tragedy
In struggle we’re all one human family
So Get the last laugh with me

Bridge

Not surprised our rights been neglected
Watch us rise tonight, it’s insurrection

Verse 3b

Back Against the Wall
Waiting for the Axe to Fall
Facing Shock and awe
we cock and draw, plan and plot,
Get your neck off the chopping block
It’s the final straw,
It's the last stop
We’re the have-nots
Why we share what we got
Tired of being double-crossed
Strike while the irons hot
All ya need is
spray-paint, rocks, and molotovs
go to war, don the black camoflauge
smash the chain stores
it’s economic sabotage,
