Rebel, rebel and yell
Locked in a cell
Mad is the story I tell
Come on, seein' what's at stake
If your mind's in a somewhat complacent state
This is a stick up
Lord, I wish I could be peaceful
Now freedom must be fundamental
On the mic, 'cause someone should tell 'em


That fill your mind
And lessons taught
And flip like a gymnast
Asleep, though we stand in the midst
Gotta get mine
Keepin' the mic warm against the norm
I think often it's nothin' but a coffin
Gotta get wreck
From here to the cape of no hope
Now freedom must be fundamental
On the mic, 'cause someone should tell 'em

Fight the war, **** the norm
Fight the war, **** the norm
Fight the war, **** the norm
Fight the war, **** the norm
Why stand on a silent platform?
Why stand on a silent platform?
Why stand on a silent platform?
Why stand on a silent platform?


When ignorance reigns, life is lost
When ignorance reigns, life is lost
When ignorance reigns, life is lost
When ignorance reigns, life is lost, lost, lost!
When ignorance reigns, life is lost!
When ignorance reigns, life is lost, lost!
Why stand on a silent platform?
Why stand on a silent platform?
Why stand on a silent platform?
Why stand on a silent platform?
