Public Enemy Lyrics

"As Long as the People Got Somethin' to Say" lyrics

As long as the people got something to say

Now, we don't control shit
No education enforcement economics
Depending on them governments
Now we forever in a plantation state
Damn, yeah you know that's why I hate hate
I wanna do something for the people
To make us equal
Instead of creatures
Who got human features
Let the whole world reach you
Things classrooms can't teach you
Now can you dig it?
Sing the song till we all get along
Feed the poor
Damn the law
When they trained 'em, taught 'em
Killed 'em when they caught 'em
Set up wet up
Then they no longer could afford 'em
Put disease across the seas
Got the earth on their knees
Get it
As long as the people got something to say

As long as the people got something to say

At this critical junction the
Administration can't function
Taking our civil liberties over
High price luncheons it's nothin'
When your considered a sheeple
As long as the people got something to say
"We the people"

They need a war to justify the
Taking of lives, they manage
The lie behind the lie behind the lie
Now you can't run and hide
It's high tech genocide
They never taught you the truth
Or, how to survive
They clone doctors to put a spin on it
Hip hop heads to shook to pull the cover off it

It may effect their sales tip the scale
The way it looks you'll end up dead or in jail.

We busy spinning and grinning on 26's you sitting
Change your god for your wealth
Thinking heaven your gettin'

You must be pre-sistance in mass resistance
Love thy enemy and make this commitment
To engage in struggle, with a clench fist lift it
Be true to self before the G.O.D. ends this.

Yo! Public enemy we back in your.........

As long as the people got something to say
