Huh! Yeah, we're comin' back then with another bombtrack Think ya know what it's all about Huh! Hey yo, so check this out Yeah! Know your enemy! Come on!
Born with insight and a raised fist A witness to the slit wrist, that's with As we move into '92 Still in a room without a view Ya got to know Ya got to know That when I say go, go, go Amp up and amplify Defy I'm a brother with a furious mind Action must be taken We don't need the key We'll break in
Something must be done About vengeance, a badge and a gun Cause I'll rip the mike, rip the stage, rip the system I was born to rage against 'em
Fist in ya face, in the place And I'll drop the style clearly Know your enemy...Know your enemy! Yeah!
Hey yo, and dick with this uggh! Word is born Fight the war, fuck the norm Now I got no patience So sick of complacence With the D the E the F the I the A the N the see the E Mind of a revolutionary So clear the lane The finger to the land of the chains What? The land of the free? Whoever told you that is your enemy?
Now something must be done About vengeance, a badge and a gun Cause I'll rip the mike, rip the stage, rip the system I was born to rage against 'em
Now action must be taken We don't need the key We'll break in
I've got no patience now So sick of complacence now I've got no patience now So sick of complacence now Sick of sick of sick of sick of you Time has come to pay Know your enemy!
Come on! Yes I know my enemies They're the teachers who taught me to fight me Compromise, conformity, assimilation, submission Ignorance, hypocrisy, brutality, the elite All of which are American dreams

Jorge from Bronx, NyRock n Roll has been labeled Rebellious,and Heavy Metal Anti Christ,but who cares,they speak the truth,that's the bottomline!
Jared from Nampa, IdBoth pickups are run through the killswitch on Tom's guitar. He has a volume for each pickup and an overall tone. The switch is ON/OFF/ON.
Wouter from Hilversum, NetherlandsActually, Tom has a special 'button' for it on his guitar, a so called killswitch. You can also get the effect by 'muting' one pickup like Nick said.
Sean from Melbourne, AustraliaVery nice solo , love it! great song!
Nick from , Scotlandfor the intro Tom puts one pickup on 10 and the other on 0, and uses the pickup selector like as a kill switch. He then changes pickup quickly to give the cool effect
Valerie from Brooklyn , Nyi knew that that the lead singer had a part in this song! ^_^ i seriously love this song.
Anon. from Twin Cities, MnFYI, in the US, Rage Against the Machine is referred to both as Rage and RATM. Go search wikipedia, both bands (RATM and the German band Rage) are listed under "Rage".
Dave from Cardiff, WalesDave NY - You've seen RAGE play this live? I doubt it, it's not their style. Rage were a critically acclaimed rock band of the 1980s who scored a transatlantic hit in 1992 with a electo version of Bryan Adams' "Run To You". Nothing to do with Rage Against the Machine, who are normally referred to by the abbreviation RATM in the UK so as not to cause confusion with the band Rage.
Oskar from Bilbao, SpainRock n Roll should be like this: a cry against the SYSTEM!
Dave from New York, Nyi've seen rage play this live with MJK singin his part...so fruckin weird haha...he stands there with his hands folded the whole song and he doesnt move...then he just sings his part and goes back to standing there...so wierdddd...how good you not jump around lie crazy being on stage with Zack? I'd drop dead before i just stood there
