    Crack the music up

    Bring that shit in
    Huh

    Yeah, the movement's in motion with mass militant poetry
    Now check this out
    Huh

    In the right light, study becomes insight
    But the system that dissed us
    Teaches us to read and right
    So called facts are fraud
    They want us to allege and pledge
    And bow down to their God
    Lost the culture, the culture lost
    Spun our minds and through time
    Ignorance has taken over
    Yo, we gotta take the power back
    Bam, here's the plan
    Motherfuck Uncle Sam
    Step back, I know who I am
    Raise up your ear, I'll drop the style and clear
    It's the beats and the lyrics they fear
    The rage is relentless
    We need a movement with a quickness
    You are the witness of change
    And to counteract
    We gotta take the power back

    Yeah, we gotta take the power back
    Come on, come on
    We gotta take the power back


    The present curriculum
    I put my fist in 'em
    Eurocentric every last one of 'em
    See right through the red, white and blue disguise
    With lecture I puncture the structure of lies
    Installed in our minds and attempting to hold us back
    We've got to take it back
    Holes in our spirit causin' tears and fears
    One-sided stories for years and years and years
    I'm inferior? Who's inferior?
    Yeah, we need to check the interior
    Of the system that cares about only one culture
    And that is why
    We gotta take the power back

    Yeah, we gotta take the power back
    Come on, come on
    Yeah, we gotta take the power back


    Hey yo check, we're gonna have to break it, break it,
    break it down
    Awww shit

    Huh
    (Solo)

    And like this
    Huh

    Come on
    Yeah
    Bring it back the other way
    Huh

    The teacher stands in front of the class
    But the lesson plan he can't recall
    The student's eyes don't perceive the lies
    Bouning off every fucking wall
    His composure is well kept
    I guess he fears playing the fool
    The complacent students sit and listen to some of that
    Bullshit that he learned in school

    Europe ain't my rope to swing on
    Can't learn a thing from it
    Yet we hang from it
    Gotta get it, gotta get it together then
    Like the motherfuckin' weathermen
    To expose and close the doors on those who try
    To strangle and mangle the truth
    'Cause the circle of hatred continues unless we react
    We gotta take the power back

    Yeah, we gotta take the power back
    Come on, come on
    Yeah, we gotta take the power back


    No more lies
    No more lies
    No more lies
    No more lies
    No more lies
    No more lies
    No more lies
    No more lies

    Huh
    Yeah

    Take it back y'all
    Take it back, a-take it back
    A-take it back y'all, come on
    Take it back y'all
    Take it back, a-take it back
    A-take it back y'all, come on


    Huh
    Yeah
