  • Hungry people don't stay hungry for long
    They get hope from fire and smoke as they reach for tha dawn
    Hungry people don't stay hungry for long
    They get hope from fire and smoke as they reach for tha dawn

    Tha spirit of Jackson
    Now screams through tha ruins
    Through factory chains
    And tha ghost of tha union
    Tha forgotten remains
    Disappear to their new homes
    Tha knife tha thrust
    Tha life burns to tha raw bone
    Tha blood on tha floor of tha tear is still dryin'
    Cover tha spread sheets
    Tha Dow Jones skyin'
    Tha cell block live stock
    Tha bodies they buyin'
    Old south order
    New northern horizon

    Violence in all hands
    Embrace it if need be
    (Violence in all hands, Embrace it if need be)
    Livin' been warfare
    I press it to CD
    (Livin' been warfare, I press it to CD)
    Violence in all hands
    Embrace it if need be
    (Violence in all hands, Embrace it if need be)
    Livin' been warfare
    I press it to CD
    (Livin' been warfare, I press it to CD)

    A fire in tha master's house is set
    A fire in tha master's house is set
    A fire in tha master's house is set
    A fire in tha master's house is set

    Hungry people don't stay hungry for long
    They get hope from fire and smoke as the wheat grows strong
    Hungry people don't stay hungry for long
    They get hope from fire and smoke as they reach for tha dawn

    Yo, yo, check tha high tech terror
    Of tha new order athletes
    Peering into tha eyes of tha child already on trial
    These armies rippin' families apart
    Get 'em on file
    Convictions fit tha stock profile
    All tha while films of dogs
    Ripping through homes
    Ripping skin from bones
    Yes tha new millennium homes
    Privatizing through private eyes
    An era rising
    Of tha old south order
    New northern horizon

    Violence in all hands
    Embrace it if need be
    (Violence in all hands, Embrace it if need be)
    Livin' been warfare
    I press it to CD
    (Livin' been warfare, I press it to CD)
    Violence in all hands
    Embrace it if need be
    (Violence in all hands, Embrace it if need be)
    Livin' been warfare
    I press it to CD
    (Livin' been warfare, I press it to CD)

    A fire in tha master's house is set
    A fire in tha master's house is set
    A fire in tha master's house is set
    A fire in tha master's house is set Writer/s: BRAD J. WILK, THOMAS B. MORELLO, TIMOTHY COMMERFORD, ZACK M. DE LA ROCHA

  • Chris from New York, NyThe opening riff is a Moby Dick by Led Zeppelin redeux...
  • John from Glasgow, Scotlandthe rage/tool collaboration (titled "Revolution") is really good.
  • Brooks from Arroyo Grande, CaThis is a fantastic song that I think has a lot to do with government opression. Huge corperations want you to buy their products and live the "AMERICAN DREAM"
