about

Sun Rise Above New York, New York

"Reframing Public Enemy's uncompromising calls for revolution within a more millennial sonic paradigm, Sun R.A. manages to give political rap its groove back. That's not to be confused with groovy, of course; R.A.'s beats charge from the gates with all the thoroughbred intensity of the [Wu-Tang] Clan's." - Editor, CNet ... more

Track Name: Prelude / The Jump
[Prelude]

Prisoners of war.
Wake up. The sun's rising.
I'm feeling good today.
I've warned the global.
Now it's time for revolution, to break the chains.
It's all about education.
And the war of information.
Who's going to prevail? History will tell.
But history is in our favor.
The working class will rise up.
What up?

Verse 1:

We're prisoners of war, get your back up off the wall
It's time for revolution, what the fuck you think I'm rapping for?
Crack the jaw, of any counterrevolutionary
He who goes against the people represents the evil
We oppose the system capitalism and what it stands for
We demand war, revolutionaries stand tall
Yea y'all, this is how the slaves get freedom
I've jotted down some rhymes, now allow me to read them

[The Jump]

Yea. Live and direct.
You've got Sun R.A. Sun Rise Above.
Revolution all day is what they call me.
You know what I'm saying?
Yea.
Yo. It's time for the people to rise.
So one, two.
On the mic, you've got Sun Caesar, ready to get loose.
What's up?

Verse 1:

I took the time last night to write in my book of rhymes
Trying to walk a straight path out of these crooked times
Looked at signs during Global Warning now I'm overturning
Freeing Prisoners of War while I'm world touring
Spent the whole morning with my seeds, then eventually
When they went to leave, had my heart piece emptying
Caught the bus and showed up at the booth
Sneaky Mike record the vocals while I spit these lines I wrote you
Hope you listening so I ain't just spitting them for the hell of it
I ain't one of these rap cats whose raps are irrelevant
If you bought my album just to shake your ass, then you should take it back
I'm making raps as part of the struggle, I ain't faking jacks
And making facts available, blasting out of your radio
Make you say to your girl, this is some shit that you've got to hear
With beats that make the speakers shake, like they've got a lot of fear
Blast it when you pass the cops, they stop like what's the problem here?
Ain't nothing pig, back up off me before I bust your wig
We ain't gotta hide in fear, 'cause the time is here
We're gonna rise and yeah, we will win this I promise you
Listen, capitalism we will abolish you

When I say let's get, y'all say free
Let's get (free)
Let's get (free)

When I say let's get, y'all say free
Let's get (free)
Let's get (free)

When I say Revo, y'all say lution
Revo (lution)
Revo (lution)

When I say Revo, y'all say lution
Revo (lution)
Revo (lution)

Yeah
Track Name: Break The Chain
Yeah.
Take a look at the past so we can create the future.
And shape the future.
You know what I mean?

Verse 1:

There were times all day was spent on Broadway
Hardly move, 7 sip brews nonchalantly
Play the spot we, chilling, relaxing
Watching Dominicana fly girls passing
Peep cousin asking for digits and names
Spitting his game, but yo something isn't the same
It lives in the brain, listen to trains speeding overhead
Decisions remain, smoking lead or a loaf of bread
You know it was said by Jesus Christ
It would be easier to fit a camel through a needle's eye
Than for a rich man to go to heaven when he die
When will I? Probably on the war field
'Cause revolution pumping through my veins is all I feel
Don't get it twisted, I ain't enlisted in no religion
Or superstition, but take the jewels and leave the lies
See through the eagle eyes, see that's how we survive
Some live illegal lives, the criminal is the rich man
We just trying to dig ourselves up out of this ditch man
Land of opportunity, but you don't see that shit man
Five fifteen, nine to five, it's a bitch man

Chorus:

I reminisce on times, my rhymes never miss
It's a bitch ain't it? This shit's tainted
Operating, in the interests of the rich, while we ain't got shit
But the little bit of crumbs that gets thrown on our way
We on our way, to make a change
And all I say, is revolution break the chains

Verse 2:

I ain't slaving for your company, so fuck what you want from me
I'd rather die free than to ever live comfortably
You're an owner, I'm a worker, nothing's the same
And a raise in the wage ain't changing our pain
We create all the profits that go into your pockets
And what do we get? A little check from your office
I'm on a work stoppage, I refuse
To make your ass richer while my whole class loose
I grab mics and spit for whoever is listening
Frankie in Connecticut, Isha out in Michigan
Chris and them, hold me down in the Bronx fam
To my man 7Wounds down in Maryland
Steady making tracks that hit cats like heroin
My daughters, think about you no matter where I am
Sorry things happened like they did, and I really miss you
Keep your daddy in your heart and I'll always be with you

(Chorus)

Verse 3:

While the here and now is occurring, it's turning to the past
And it's too late to save it
But the future don't occur, we create it, let's make it happen
According to the time line, it's my time to take some action
Of revolutionary shape and fashion, by break and bashing
You know attacking the system
Twenty four seven in whatever chance I get sun
Fuck politicians, let my ammunition hit them
Same with cops, army generals and naval ops
Revolution burning inside of me 'til my days are stopped
That's the only way I'll stop, this I promise you
You'll never see me quit, like electricity to an Amish dude
What the fuck is wrong with you, waving the flag
That stands for the annihilation of the Indians
Same flag was waving, they was enslaving the Africans
The past is the path to the future, tell me what's happening

(Chorus)
Track Name: Prisoners of War
We dealing with doomness, they are killers man
They take pride in wiping people out
That's how they make their living
Those cats don't play
This is a war, we've got to use every weapon at our disposal
Verse 1:

Fuck the rich, I'm poor
My girl lives in a shack on the shore of the Atlantic
Ocean that spans gigantic expanses
My fighting mind is known for writing rhymes in Sanskrit
That advance this fight for liberation
I write for penetration, hoping my words sink in
To your brain and remain in your thinking
Cats are drinking big doses of indoctrination
They've got this nation right where they want it
And those who speak out get put on a wanted sign and hunted
Like Martin Luther King, you know he had a dream
But as you see, the ruling class didn't agree
There's getting to be more thrown behind bars for political cause
Free Leonard Peltier, Sherman Austin plus the Cuban Five
Who's in line next up to be doing time for their views?

Chorus:

They never talk about that on the news at ten
Government and corporations are using them
Who's your friend, who's your enemy is what I ask you
Bring the facts forward, first attack in the class war

Verse 2:

True history is the sickest saga
The CIA sponsored the contras who slaughtered the people of Nicaragua
All the Sandinistas wanted was freedom and equality
Their dreams were smashed by the wrath of big monopolies
It's awful these stories are true
Now you wonder why the news kept these stories from you
'Cause they're under the control of the ruling class, the government too
So don't let democracy fool your ass
Or pull your ass to the voting booth, yo know the truth
About the world you're in, organize we've got a world to win
Shit going down is fucking outrageous
Coca-Cola killing workers in Colombia who wanted raises
Where's the papers? Filling pages with stories on Kobe
Lying, the Sudanese genocide killing civilians slowly
Roll these facts into raps, spit them for the people
United States controls the world's oldest colony, Puerto Rico

(Chorus)
Track Name: Make A Move
Let's rock.
Yo, check it.

Verse 1:

Microphones get blown to pieces
Every piece of art that I drop is like Mona Lisa
Don't want to see no Hollywood in the women
Don't ever follow them
Hollow head chickens getting their lips shot up with collagen
Slip a cartridge in, I'm ready for the worst
With an automatic weapon that off in steady bursts
Every verse I release is aimed at hurting the beast
Why the wages keep falling while the work is increased
No justice to no peace, or feasts
For the rich while we're starving
From Republica Dominicana, the Philippines to Harlem
A guerrilla sees a problem and takes it in his own hands
Grown man taking control of his own land
Just being responsible, we've got a lot to do
First step, open up the hospitals and make it possible
For all to receive health care, without an obstacle
All we've got to do is make a move, so what's stopping you?

Chorus:

Make a move (We ain't got nothing to loose)
Make a move (We ain't got nothing to loose)
So make a move (We ain't got nothing to loose)
Make a move (We ain't got nothing to loose but our chains)

Make a move (We ain't got nothing to loose)
Make a move (We ain't got nothing to loose)
Make a move (We ain't got nothing to loose)
So make a move (We ain't got nothing to loose but our chains)


Verse 2:

Peace, rice and beans get ate up and swallowed quick
Deal with politics using nickle plated hollow tips
Now see if you can follow this, affecting all of us
Dwelling in hell ask and I'll tell exactly how hot it is
We deal with wage slavery until the day when we abolish it
Capitalism is a prison no matter which name you calling it
Revolution is coming, get involved with it, form a faction
Join a union, start a people's army, forms of action
A war of classes, the system we fitting to smash it
Don't be scared to make a move, that's why we've never had shit
Imagine, food for everybody, no homeless
And we're owning the full value of what we making
So fuck debating, liberation is our motivation
We unite worldwide saying no to nations
No divisions, now we're going to make our own decisions
Fuck politicians and living in poor conditions

(Chorus)

Verse 3:

Counterrevolutionaries change or get put to bed
You prove deadly like drinking out of cups of lead
Catch a busted head trying to go against the movement
All we're trying to do is, make the people equal
How could you oppose this, yo are you evil?
Why do you need so much when so many have got zero
We don't need a hero, our strength lies in unity
Unleash the force of the world's working community
Soon to be the rulers and controllers of our destiny
Together we'll overcome all armies and their weaponry
When will we combine is my only line of questioning
The more threatening the system will get until we hit them back
Get the gist of that? This is fact, it ain't just a rap
Get the map, and make moves international
Guerrilla war, hit from out of the trees like an assassin do
Attacking you, rich ruling class, tired of asking you

(Chorus)
Track Name: Dollar Bill
Verse 1:

Y'all know my style, I'm foul, my nickname is greenbacks
I show up on the scene and cause recovered fiends to relapse
I've seen cats murder and thieve to get me back
When I was kidnapped, you need me to buy bullets to get kids capped
A sick fact, but it's true, and wouldn't you
Do just about anything to get me in amounts of a million
You know, piles to the ceiling, if you're down and you're willing
Then make a move, come free me from this prison, they call it a bank
When you ain't with me, how bad you want to be, is all you can think
You're calling a shrink, for what? Trying to get me off your mind
But I pop up again, in the cost of his time
Rappers floss in their rhymes, I'm all around you
Bound you down to constantly stalking me, there's no way around
Stop stallin', 'cause if you ain't involved in
Some pursuit of me then you starving, it's appalling

(Chorus)

My name is dollar bill, for real, the root of all evil
Through need I instill greed into all people
Y'all will never be equal, as long as I'm here
I don't care what you got to do, just come get me!

My name is dollar bill, for real, the root of all evil
Through need I instill greed into all people
Y'all will never be equal, as long as I'm here
I don't care what you got to do, just come get me!

Verse 2:

I move from man to man, land to land, hand to hand, I'm filthy
Used to melt me in the old form of gold, I moved on
To paper currency, now I'm the only paper that you care about
Numbers tattooed on my back trace my whereabouts
I'm used to buy everything from Cadillacs to toothpaste
Catch me locked down in a politician's suitcase
The poor can never have me while the rich can never have enough
The type of kid to make a brother flip and stab you up
I can tell you that, cats are wildin' off the smell of cash
Women that will sell their ass, the shit that will forever last
The name is cash, aka, Dollar Bill, so what's up?
Y'all know my steelo, big faced, I be folded up
Holding up liquor stores to get you more of my company
Can get you locked in a cell block, but what you want from me?
Start selling crack to get stacks, it's a possibility
By I ain't really feeling these communists out for killing me

(Chorus)
Track Name: Get A Job
(You need to get a job.)
What?
(You're always sitting around here writing rhymes...)
Man, got ahead with that bullshit.
(...and reading your books or whatever. You need to get a job man, we've got bills to pay.)
Yeah, I don't know about that, right?
(Welfare ain't feeding the kids like they need to be fed, you know what I mean?)
Man, go ahead with that.
(You need to get off your lazy ass and get a job)
Man, get the fuck out of here. I'm going to go work for these rich motherfuckers? Every 8 dollars they pay me, they're making 90 off of my work.

Verse 1:

Get a job, that's what they tell me, the system failed me Trying to throw me in the belly of the corporate machine
Working for greed, getting paid $5.15
Minimum wage, men in a cage
9 to 5, I ain't a slave but I survive
Coming of age and I'm expected to be directed
Like a sheep, into the system, without a peep
Every day wake up go to work, come home and sleep
Oh and eat, when I can afford to, I'm forced to
Sell my labor to some prick that's rich
But I'm doing all the work and I ain't got shit
What do I get? Taxes taken away from me
That's used to pay for these crooked cops
And wars where bombs is dropped on boys and girls Men and women that's just trying to make a living like us
While the one's that's making the decisions is living it up
And the working class dies on the front lines
Track Name: Grow
Verse 1:

This is a message, for all of y'all living happily
In your own little world, content with your apathy
Acting like this is the way that the world has to be
The majority of people are getting exploited actively
Acting passively will never actually achieve a social change
And that's the only aim, from now until my older days
You know the way I advocate, overthrow with no delay
Capitalism overstayed its welcome, so we help them out
Rich man beware, we'll remove your wealth
Spread it out evenly and then we do for self
Nationalize the hospitals and improve our health
What did this system ever do to help? Not shit

Chorus:

Can I reach you? When I release the raps on wax
I'm like Che overthrowing Batista
Increase the equality, consciousness and unity
You know that's what I'm for, so let's grow as a community

Can I reach you? When I release the raps on wax
I'm like Che overthrowing Batista
Increase the equality, consciousness and unity
You know that's what I'm for, so let's grow as a community

Verse 2:

Why does a small elite control all of the wealth?
While we die to compete to make a little for self
As the cost of living rises, we try to feed our babies
They still pay the same though, it seems so crazy
There's no job for a high school drop out single mother
Even if she finds one, she can't afford the child care
Forced to the projects, even though it's wild there
You're acting like it's just her fate
But this is the shit the system creates
Which is why it's the system we hate
Open your eyes up, realize what?
It's time for all of us to rise up, in the interest of our own
And fight the revolution within inches of our homes
This rings the bell of truth as it sinks into your dome
I would die for what I'm saying, please don't think it's just a poem
This rings the bell of truth as it sinks into your dome
I would die for what I'm saying, please don't think it's just a poem

(Chorus)

Verse 3:

It's time for a change, it's time to take some action
Form a faction, comrades let's make it happen
Take my rapping to heart like a coronary
This is revolution, not your everyday ordinary
War is very harsh, but living life is hard already
If you ain't willing to die for something you're alive for nothing
So why are you fronting? When poverty is all I see
You'd rather be rich or have freedom, justice, equality?
It's calling me, so I fight for my freedom
And I'm taking control of the life that I'm leading
So that life ain't leading me, some of y'all see
Injustice in the world, but you'd rather leave it be
Never that, when can make it better
We've got to keep fighting even if takes forever
Never that, when can make it better
We've got to keep fighting even if takes forever

(Chorus)

Can I reach you?
When I release the
Raps on wax

When I release the
Raps on wax

I'm like Che overthrowing Batista
Track Name: Hang Over
Hey yo son.
Have you ever been so drunk that you can't even see?
Like your eyes don't even work and shit.
I ain't ever trying to get drunk like that again.

Verse 1:

One time for the one line, uptown on my way
Lost of focus, lost the day, unplug the RCA
Fuck the cost, 'cause everybody take a loss someday
One stray from the chair, unfair like this life been
Veered down the stairs, twisted like rifling
In a barrel, singing carols about the best of years
Lay to rest the fears, caught up in a loss of discipline
Screaming in a bottle, 'cause ain't nobody listening
Not this again, when you're alone booze can feel like the biggest friend
Enlisted men from here to Michigan
Officially put me out of commission man
Feeling like a fish out of water in the boat of a fisherman
Fidgeting, I can't get to sleep
Got rhymes in my head and my hand wants to creep
To grab a pen, and jab it in a notebook
Quotes took over my body, sober not hardly

Chorus:

With that rum in my system like a gun to my liver
Poor that shit in the sink, son I'm done with the liquor
Hit you like a ton of bricks, or a slug from a shotty
It's all about discipline and listening to your body

That rum in my system like a gun to my liver
Poor that shit in the sink, son I'm done with the liquor
Hit you like a ton of bricks, or a slug from a shotty
It's all about discipline and listening to your body

Verse 2:

Brugal, Dominican rum pumping through my veins
Brutal, feeling like a lost a shootout
And who's in pain? Make you feel like you're insane
When you get so smashed that you can't use your brain
And you can't move a thing, passed out
It's funny though, 'cause I still managed to get this rap out
Close the curtains in your glass house, if you start throwing stones
I'm gonna mash out and chuck cinder blocks
Hey yo, where's the cops? I give a fuck if they come through
Hope I hit them too, mic check one, two
Show you how the Sun do, light in the dark
I write from the heart, if you like it or not
You were thought that the Sun never rests
I emerge in the East, and I'm setting in the West
Yo this could have been a test, but non-fiction is what I'm rapping in
I promise that I'll never get drunk like that again

(Chorus)
Track Name: Time Is Now
Verse 1:

Yo, I noted this rhyme as I focused my mind
Noticed it's time for revolution so I loaded the nine
I hear cops talk, but I know that they're lying
Convertible flying down the block as I walk to the train
My voice to the mic is like thoughts to brain
Cats lost in the fame, off the cost of their chain
I constantly rain down flames like a meteor
And read to you facts you won't hear in the media
'Cause it's controlled by the corporations
It's time for the orchestration and rise of workers' nations
Or more starvation and inequality is what lies ahead
And if at first we don't succeed then we'll rise again
Yea, your propaganda is not phasing me
An equal day's pay to me is still wage slavery
Until the days when we control what we making
The rulers will take it, our souls will be vacant

Chorus:

Dedicated to the revolutionary lifestyle
Run up in the power plant put their lights out
Molotov cocktails, to the White House
Yo it's time to make a move, when?
Right now

Dedicated to the revolutionary lifestyle
Run up in the power plant put their lights out
Molotov cocktails, to the White House
Yo it's time to make a move, when?
Right now

Verse 2:

I study Karl Marx, in the parks after dark
By candle light, getting spied on by satellites
'Cause the government's watching you
So you better watch what they put in those shots at the hospital
Try to make it impossible to be overthrown
With the global sewn, FBI tap your mobile phone
CIA up in your crib when you're not at home
Prisoners of a war that we're living in
Read your email? Shit, they invented the internet
How you figure that they work for the people?
Working class, ruling class, never equal
There's a few in command that's ruling the land
So who's gonna stand for our liberation?
Lead the world in murders each year in the killer nation
America eats its youth, I speak the truth
Hoping that I'm reaching you

(Chorus)
Track Name: Free Your Mind
Verse 1:

Get live, 'cause I still don't want to die
Twenty one years breathing, it's the mister Sunny Season
Any reason to rhyme is a reason of mine
Seizing the time space and place for freeing the mind
Leaving behind bullshit, vision leading the blind
Seeing as I'm the MC ripping the mic
Allow me to spit what I like, it's kind of strange
But light has more effect in the night than in the days
In the ways of this world, while it's spinning around the sun
Shrouded in mystery and the history has just begun
It's been fun, it's been horror, but we seem to manage
Even with greedy people trying to take advantage
See the damage, our species has inflicted on the planet
The human brain invented things from lingerie to cannons
And it never seems to stop, guns go pop, pop, pop
Every time I watch the news another dude got shot

Chorus:

Human beings ain't seeing the signs, reason we blind
It's time to start freeing the mind, see what you find
But don't nobody want to do like that
We just dance to the drums and we cool like that

Human beings ain't seeing the signs, reason we blind
It's time to start freeing the mind, see what you find
But don't nobody want to do like that
We just dance to the drums and we cool like that

Verse 2:

Free your mind and your ass will follow, that's the motto
All that bullshit they try to feed you, don't ever swallow
'Cause a hollow head is easy to fill, with all of that
While a free mind is open to deal, with all the facts
Leave tracks on repeat, make rhymes in my brain
Sometimes can't explain, how they make it out the pen
Taking them, to the end of the tunnel, out of the darkness
The sun shine, light up the night, focus your optics
Break you out of the boxes, where the thoughts flow free
Growing like an oak tree or the mighty red wood
Your head could be productive or a piece of dead wood
Lead could, pop you in the brain stop your train of thought
My point is, waiting for making a move is pointless
You've got to act now, for change don't back down
When this rap sound come, crashing out of your system
Hope the lyrics leave you seeing the vision, if you didn't already

(Chorus)
Track Name: Fuck The System (ft. 7Wounds)
Verse 1:

(Sun Rise Above)
Plan for the long run son, but in the short time
I contort rhymes, and now here the song comes
Long gun rifle game, accurate sniper aim
We lived in peace until the beasts and vipers came
Fight for praise, righteous days will rise again
And I ain't scared to die, 'cause I'm survived by kin
Riflemen, guerrilla troops, chill in stoops and tops of buildings
Cops are killing, revolutionaries are locked in prison
We bring the war, bring the cure like amoxicillin
Toxic living, eating swine, I remind
These are symptoms of a beaten mind, keep in time
Wake a sleeping mind, Slit my wrists and I bleed the time

Chorus:

This is revolution
Fuck the system, wisdom tells me burn the constitution
This is our solution
We don't stop the shooting
Until the cops is loosing
Hip hop infusion over tracks, know the facts

This is revolution
Fuck the system, wisdom tells me burn the constitution
This is our solution
We don't stop the shooting
Until the cops is loosing
Hip hop infusion over tracks, load the gats

Word.
This is Sun Revolution All day.
You know what I'm saying?
This shit is real.
This is real life.
Yo 7Wounds, let them know.

Verse 2:

(7Wounds)
I came underneath the flag of Bed Rock, Shell shocked with gamma radiated
Pearl handled syndicated nightmares, and the locks don't work
Trapped in the alley and the Glocks don't work
Trapped in the city where the cops don't work
Watch the next nigga's hammer cock and jerk, and pop in your shirt
And watch your body drop to the dirt, and watch your wiz for cocking her skirt
And she's screaming out stop, 'cause it hurts
Can't rape the willing, killing towers manned by collage sisters
That rock M dash knowledge sixes
And god forbid, missiles deliver
Prepare for nine eleven syndrome, heathenish bastards
All hail my skin tone, carve scriptures in big stone
The seven in the six cornered star split bones
Five falcons snap your wishbone and chant culture
Out of spiral in papyrus holsters
We're rolling boulders from in front of holy Sepulchres

(Chorus)

Verse 3:

(Sun Rise Above)
This is revolution, coming through the mic device
Strike at night, government hate me 'cause I incite
Mass uprisings, don't act surprised when
Riots break out, can't escape out the violence
That we can inflict, the people is sick
Of years of oppression, fear of neglect and
You hearing the message, armed uprising
Classes colliding, no capitalist surviving
Organized, we become much stronger
The working class of the world must conquer
Before greed and lust conquer

You know the deal.
Word up.
You've got to fight for whatever though.
And cling to every fucking inch.
Track Name: Guerrilla Warfare
Yea.
Straight out of the jungles.
You know what I mean?
Yea.
We're going to do one for the people's armies of the world.
Those who died in the struggle.
Those who fought with the preferred method of combat for the people.
Yea. Guerrilla war.
Guerrilla war.

Verse 1:

Guerrilla war, hand to hand leave them fearing the fist
Uppercut to the jaw of imperialists, They're wary of this
Movement and its seriousness
My theory is this, Karl Marx and Che Guevara
Combined and applied in these days of terror
Strike like blazing arrows from the last natives fighting
Nepalese people's army, right in the front lines
The Black Panthers like Fred Hampton
Zapatistas and Shining Path in Peru
Yo I dedicate my rapping to you
The true freedom fighters
Lead a life dedicated to liberation with a nation
Facing war and imperial invasion
The Mau Mau, Puerto Rican independistas
Who fought for their cause and got thrown behind bars
The Sandinistas and the Tupac Amaru
And everyone who died for a better tomorrow

Yea, dedicated to the people's armies.
You know what I mean?
Past, present and future.
Track Name: Stop
Verse 1:

Certain shit has go to stop like cops and their brutality
Stop letting our people turn into casualties
Stop dropping bombs instead of dropping food
Stop the war, yo somebody stop George
Somebody stop the helicopters from flying over my building
Yo parents, stop being your children
Stop the killing over crack and whose block you're on
Stop not paying attention when my motherfucking songs are on
Radio stop playing bullshit nonstop
People stop buying albums that's not really hot
Men stop calling women hoes
Drug addicts, coke addicts, stop putting that shit in your nose
All that shit has got to stop and you've got to know
The one thing you'll never stop is my flow, it's like the Nile
Yo, rappers stop biting styles, how many times I hear a rhyme
Sounds like somebody already spit it, You need to quit it

Verse 2:

Stop talking about diamonds every time that you're rhyming
Think about the Africans dying when they mine them
Plus you lying, look around nobody is rich in the hood
So stop acting like shit is all good
To the government (fuck y'all), come on y'all stop cutting the welfare
And give these 43 million people some healthcare
Stop acting like the children in the ghetto ain't worth me
Stop acting like it's our fault that we were born poor
Stop paying for more war when there are people at home
That gotta to sleep in the street because they don't got a home
Feed the hungry, home the homeless, shoe the shoeless
And stop acting you motherfuckers can't do this
To the poor, to the workers, stop acting like friends of these
Bosses and business owners that's clearly our enemies
We create all profits that pay for their lifestyles
So stop sitting on your ass and join a union right now (IWW)

(Chorus)

Stop what you're doing
Take a look around and
Stop what you're doing
Take a look around yo
Stop what you're doing
Stop, stop, stop, stop

You need to stop what you're doing
Take a look around and
Stop what you're doing
Take a look around yo
Stop what you're doing
Stop, stop, stop, stop

Yea.
Prisoners of War.
Yea.

We're going to bust free.
We're fighting for freedom.
And fighting for freedom until we've got it.
And not some bullshit freedom on paper.
But the real.
You know what I mean?
We're going to Break the Chain.
It don't stop here.
We're going to spill into the streets right now.
The masses are going to rise up.
You know what I mean?
Peace to the comrades all around the world.
Peace to the men. Peace to the women.
Peace to the boys and girls.
Those that wasn't born yet.
Those that already died.
You know what I mean?
The missing in action.
The Prisoners of War.
It's a constant struggle.
The Class War.
You know what I mean?
I'm going to see y'all in the battlefield.
Peace.
