We Got The Whip

Album: The Civilian Project (2002)
  • Oooh
    Oooh
    Oooh
    Oooh

    Long days and nights you fought for truth
    Gotta hand it to you
    Uprising paid for in blood
    Only to lose
    We're gonna hang you up
    You've got balls but

    We got the whip
    we got a better bomb
    We got the whip
    We got the whip
    we got a better bomb
    x2

    Oooh
    Oooh

    Heartache and strife is all you've known
    A slave since your youth
    And only one life to bargain with
    And ration is due
    We're gonna string you up
    You've got balls but

    We got the whip
    we got a better bomb
    We got the whip
    We got the whip
    we got a better bomb
    x2

    Yeah
    Fearlessness in the face of death
    Pain with a smile
    Braving the fight until the end
    I know I will never be anything like you

    We got the whip
    we got a better bomb
    We got the whip
    We got the whip
    we got a better bomb
    x2

  • Sfwriters from West Hartford, CtI don't think the "whip" here means what it means in the R&B and Hip Hop world.
  • Bert from Pueblo, NmGotta love Cornell singing, "We're gonna hang you up, you've got balls, but.."
