We Need A Revolution

This song is by Dead Prez and appears on the Mixtape Turn Off The Radio (2002).

I'm tired.
I'm tired.
I'm tired of struggalin, dog.
I'm tired of struggalin, dog.

The system ain't gon' change,
unless we make it change.

The White House is a rock house,
Uncle Sam is a mother fuckin' pusher man.
What I gotta do to make sure ya understand?
Spit it on the beat-box Timbaland?
What I gotta do? (Uh?)
Kidnap Aaliyah,
take her melody?
Make it relevant? Hold her harmony hostage
to these people-army verses?
Stash the arms in the churches,
bombs in the purses.
Just when you think it's calm on the surface,
we bomb on the first.
Uncle Toms get nervous every verse.
Revolution ain't a curse words. (Uh-ha.)
First come, first served.
It ain't no lost slug,
Freedom cost the blood.
That's word to the mouth, bird, nigga.

We need a revolution,
We need a revolution,
The system ain't gon' change unless we make it change.
We need a revolution,
We need a revolution,
The system ain't gon' change unless we make it change.

(Black Power)
We need a revolution, (RBGs)
We need a revolution, (RBGs)
(RBGs) (Nigga, that's that RBGs.)
(Black Power) (RBGs) (RBGs) (RBGs) (Nigga, that's that RBGs.)

Got a cure for AIDS and cancer.
Wanna know? Come, follow me now.
Diabetes and sickle-cell even mad cow.
Wanna know how?
I can stop these cops from killin'?
I can feed the' hungry children?
I can stop racism, a product of cap-it-a-lism?
I can unpack the prison
and turn religion back to we livin'?

I can stop the bloods from pillin'
caps
and the crips from pillin'
back
and get yo' cousin off
crack

I can stop the war
(Tat-tat-tat)
that's in the black hood.
Send the money right back to the po', fo' sho, an',
if you with me nigga, let me know
let's go, if ya really wanna know.
(I wanna know)
(We need a real solution)
Mutha fuck they constitution.

RBGs off in this thangs,
they hip to the game,
get it off the chain.

The system ain't gon' change, unless we make it change.

We need a revolution, (Come on, Come on)
We need a revolution, (Come on, Come on)
The system ain't gon' change, unless we make it change.
(They say)
We need a revolution,
(They say)
We need a revolution, (Come on, Come on)

(People army, nigger.)
Biggest dope dealer's in the White House. (we need a revolution)
Can't get no justice in the court house. (we need a revolution)
Politician' cars comin' out the crack house. (we need a revolution)
How the fuck you gon' take us out
Same thing goin' on at yo' house.
Same thing goin' on at my house.

??? layin' up in the penthouse,
so we ain't
