Ring the Alarm pt. 1, pt. 2, pt.3

Album: Masters of the Sun, Vol. 1 (2018)
  • Pt.1
    [Intro]
    Wake up!

    [Verse 1: will.i.am.]
    I wanna say what's on my motherfuckin' conscious
    The whole world right now is fucking bonkers
    The internet is the brand new conqueror
    So watch out for the motherfuckin' monsters (yikes)
    The trolls are the taunters, whoever controls the data got the answers
    They the ones that got the code to the launcher
    And they be having dinner with the Pope and the mobsters

    They know the cure for the cancer
    Cure for the AIDS and they prolly killed the Panthers
    Put us in a cage got us living like hamsters
    Put us in the dark but I got me a lantern
    Open up my third eye, then I illuminate
    Willy got a bird eye view when I elevate
    No Illuminati, baby, I'm god body
    The rapture like Blondie wakin' up zombies
    Wake up!

    [Chorus]
    Wake up, wake up, sound the alarm
    Revolution time has come
    Wake up, wake up, sound the alarm
    Tell the people here come the storm
    Wake up!
    Wake up, wake up, sound the alarm
    Revolution time has come
    Wake up, wake up, sound the alarm
    Ring the alarm, ring the alarm

    [Refrain]
    Ring the alarm, ring the alarm
    Ring the alarm, ring the alarm
    Ring the alarm, ring the alarm
    Ring the alarm, ring the alarm
    Wake up!

    [Verse 2: Taboo & will.i.am]
    A wise man said knowledge is king
    Know thyself and you can do anything
    Know thyself and you could shine like bling
    Know thyself and you're the king of the ring, ha
    But they don't teach kids nothing
    All they know is iPad, sugar in their muffin
    They don't know division, don't add to nothing
    Send them off to prison when you know they did nothing

    He in the streets cause he always cuttin'
    The teacher ain't teaching him nothin'
    All they do was stuffin' 'em and stuffin' 'em
    Stuffin' 'em and stuffin' 'em and stuffin' 'em
    Stuffin' 'em and stuffin' 'em and stuffin' 'em

    Stuffin' 'em with stuff he can't use
    So he sell crack, that's what he know to do
    His daddy was a hustler, so he hustle too
    And that's why you see the lil' killer in the news
    It's kinda like they got us in a trap
    It's kinda like they knowin' how we act
    I'll be like "fuck your fuckin' laboratory, I am not a rat"
    I am light, I am God body, wise to the fact
    Wake up!

    [Chorus]
    Wake up, wake up, sound the alarm
    Revolution time has come
    Wake up, wake up, sound the alarm
    Tell the people here come the storm
    Wake up!
    Wake up, wake up, sound the alarm
    Revolution time has come
    Wake up, wake up, sound the alarm
    Ring the alarm, ring the alarm

    [Refrain]
    Ring the alarm, ring the alarm
    Ring the alarm, ring the alarm
    Ring the alarm, ring the alarm
    Ring the alarm, ring the alarm
    Wake up!

    [Bridge]
    Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
    Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up

    Pt.2
    [Intro]
    Wake up!
    Wake up!

    [Verse 3: apl.de.ap]
    Eyes open, who's watching the watchers?
    Clock ticking like we're running out of options
    Villains in the White House, heroes in their coffins
    Leaders double cross while we kneeling to our crosses
    Whose policing the police, why they stalking?
    All lives matter 'till your color is the target
    Fox running up the sheep for the slaughter
    Money over people while they reaching for that dollar

    All I see's lies on the screen
    Land of the free, but what the fuck's free?
    What does it cost to let a nigga breathe?
    King had a dream but we all still asleep, huh
    They robbed you blind and knowledge is a crime
    The shit's designed to keep you on a grind
    Rise and shine, cause now it's the time
    We all God body if you open up your mind
    Wake up!

    [Chorus]
    Wake up, wake up, sound the alarm
    Revolution time has come
    Wake up, wake up, sound the alarm
    Tell the people here come the storm
    Wake up!
    Wake up, wake up, sound the alarm
    Revolution time has come
    Wake up, wake up, sound the alarm
    Ring the alarm, ring the alarm

    [Bridge]
    Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
    Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up

    Pt.3
    [Verse 4: will.i.am.]
    Ain't nothing impossible, I tell myself
    That I am possible
    I know that devil is out there and plotting those plans
    To stop me and put me in hospital bed
    I said "Yo, I would not be toppled, I'm down with Jesus and I roll with apostles."
    We got that big love, that love that's colossal
    We meditate ain't no need to get hostile
    You cannot penetrate me with the hate
    We got that good vibration on vibrate
    Stay on that way up cause we elevate
    We got that big love, the love heavyweight

    Wait, wait, that's the gospel
    That's the motherfucking gospel
    Ha, that's the gospel
    That's the motherfucking gospel
    I tell them, yo
    The movement's unstoppable
    Pausing the flow, that is not optional
    I let 'em know, everything's solvable
    When you know science, everything is plausible
    I am defiant, I'm also logical
    Politicians be tripping, they comical
    So I sit back and listen to audio
    Spiritual hip-hop, I call that hypnoticals
    We Budda-Boy, B-Boy phenomenals
    We Zulu-kill zombies in chronicles
    We ain't falling cause we ain't dominoes

    That revolution is on go
    Go, go, that's the gospel
    That's the motherfucking gospel
    Yup, that's the gospel
    That's the motherfucking gospel
    Uh
