Renegades

This song is by Rage Against the Machine.

Yo, I was a fiend before I became a teen
I melted microphone instead of cones of ice cream
Music orientated so when hip-hop was originated
Fitted like pieces of puzzles, complicated

Shot grabbed the mic and try to say, " Yes y'all"
They tried to take it, and say that I'm too small
Cool, 'cause I don't get upset
I kick a hole in the speaker, pull the plug, then I jet

Back to the lab without a mic to grab
So then I add all the rhymes I had
One after the another one, then I make another one
To dis the opposite then ask if the brother's done

I get a craving like I fiend for nicotine
But I don't need a cigarette, know what I mean?
I'm raging, ripping up the stage and don't it sound amazing
'Cause every rhyme is made and thought of
'Cause it's sort of an addiction, magnetized by the mixing

But back to the problem, I gotta habit
You can't solve it, you silly rabbit
The prescription is a hyper tone that's thorough when
I fiend for a microphone like heroin

Soon as the bass kicks, I need a fix
Gimme a stage and a mic and a mix
And I'll put you in a mood or is it a state of unawareness?
Beware, it's the reanimator

A menace to a microphone, a lethal weapon
An assasinator, if the people ain't stepping
You see a part of me that you never seen
When I'm fiending for a microphone

'Cause I take it to the maximum, I can't relax
See, I'm hype as a hyperchrondriac
'Cause the rap be one hell of a antidote
Something you can't smoke more than dope

You're trying to move away but you can't
You're broke more than cracked up
You should have backed up for those who act up
Need to be more than smacked up
