License to Be Violent

Hook:

The way things are, is not the way they outta be
They use authority to extend our poverty
No prisons bars, destroy private property
Fuck those in charge, overthrow the aristocracy

Verse 1:

I don’t wanna live til I’m old,
rather die bold, be bolder
I’m tired of the weight of the world on my shoulders,
instead of getting what’s mine
what I’m owed, sir
They want me passing time,
behind bars busting boulders
They raise walls but I’m a get over (x 2)
Guns go bust, when you a soldier
I’m a soldier in this class war, I thought I told ya
We burn millionaires mansions till they smoulders

Hook:

The way things are is not the way they ought to be
They use authority to extend our poverty
No prisons bars, destroy private property
Fuck those in charge, overthrow the aristocracy (x2)

Verse 2:

I don't stick to to life that scripted
I don't think the rich are god's gift cause they're tight-fisted
the necks of these pigs might get twisted,
for leaving us poor, sick, and evicted,
neglected, cold, hungry, and naked,
lift em off their feet in a second
left us with less to eat, we got digested
feed the world starve the rich,
since they invested
in paying us pennies for boring routines,
assign chores til we feel we we're born to please,

Hook:

The way things are is not the way they ought to be
They use authority to extend our poverty
No prisons bars, destroy private property
Fuck those in charge, overthrow the aristocracy (x2)

Verse 3:

Fuck a right to be silent
I gotta license to be violent
Overthrow ruling class tyrants
Meet in the streets, start a food riot
Make the rich choke on gold
Like that fool king midas
You fearin this? Just listen
Watch as I topple pyramid systems
Fuck power-hungry politicians
Backed by big business villians,
Cut the noose of profits
The time has risen (x2)
We demand greater options
Than dying in a gold-plated coffins
Stop playin' possum (x2)
If you're following stock-tips,
You'll be swallowing glock clips
Don’t knock this
Challenge the path of least resistance
Betray privilege gained through indifference
Take the less traveled road
It’s time to lock and load
Take the less traveled road

Time to take back what were owed (x2)
