The Lyrics Are Below

 

Township Rebellion

Rebel, rebel and yell

'Cause our people still dwell in hell

Locked in a cell

Yes, the structure's a cell

Mad is the story I tell

How long can we wait?

Come on, seein' what's at stake

Action for reaction

If your mind's in a somewhat complacent state

Get a check up

This is a stick up

Our freedom or your life

Lord, I wish I could be peacful

But there can be no sequel

 

 

Now freedom must be fundamental

In Johannesburg or South Central

On the mic, 'cause someone should tell 'em

To kick in the township rebellion

 

 

Yeah, what about that sucker?

 

Yeah, so you thought you could get with the hardlines

That fill your mind

Thoughts, battles fought

And lessons taught

Yes I'll display the fitness

And flip like a gymnast

Raise my fist and resist

Asleep, though we stand in the midst

Of th war

Gotta get mine

Gotta get more

Keepin' the mic warm against the norm

'Cause what does it offer me?

I think often it's nothin' but a coffin

 

Gotta get wreck

'Till our necks never swing on a rope

From here to the cape of no hope

 

 

Now freedom must be fundamental

In Johannesburg or South Central

On the mic, 'cause someone should tell 'em

To kick in the township rebellion

 

 

Why stand on a silent platform?

Fight the war, fuck the norm (4 times)

 

(Guitar solo)

 

Why stand on a silent platform?

Fight the war, fuck the norm (4 times)

 

What's it gonna take?

Euuurrrggghhhhh!

 

Shackle their minds when they're bent on the cross

When ignorance reigns, life is lost

Shackle their minds when they're left on the cross

When ignorance reigns, life is lost

Shackled our minds when we're bent on the cross

When ignorance reigns, life is lost

Shackled our minds when we're left on the cross

When ignorance reigns, life is lost, lost, lost!

 

Shackle your minds and you're left on the cross!

When ignorance reigns, life is lost!

Just shackle your minds when you're bent on the cross!

When ignorance reigns, life is lost, lost!

 

Why stand on a silent platform?

Fight the war, fuck the norm (4 times)
