RISE



F*ck the police.
F*ck the government too.
But most importantly
F*ck you.

They’ve got their hands in your pockets,
And a boot on your neck.
Helter skelter
Is coming down fast.

The time has come to rise!
The time has come to rise, rise, rise!
The time has come to rise, rise, rise!

Never apologize
To the mob!
They’re a bunch of
Self righteous slobs!

Black, white, brown,
Yellow, blue, and red.
When will you learn
They have a gun to your head?

The time has come to rise!
The time has come to rise, rise, rise!
The time has come to rise, rise, rise!

Now were in
The eye of the storm!
I’ll never wear
Your uniform!

The dogs obey
And the pigs will rot!
Here I come,
Ready or not!

The time has come to rise!
The time has come to rise, rise, rise!
The time has come to rise, rise, rise!
