Lyrics:
Huh! Yeah, we're comin' back in with another "Bombtrack" Think ya know it's all of that, HUH! Hey yo, so check this out... Yeah... Know your enemy! Come on! Born with insight and a raised fist A witness to the slit wrist As we, move into '92 Still in a room without a view Ya got to know, ya got to know That when I say go, go, go! Amp up and amplify Defy, I'm a brother with a furious mind Action must be taken We don't need the key, we'll break in Something must be done About vengeance, a badge and a gun Cause I'll rip the mic, rip the stage, rip the system I was born to Rage Against em! Fist in ya face in the place and I'll drop the style clearly... Know your enemy! Know your enemy! Yeah! Hey yo, and get with this... ugh! Word, is, born! Fight the war, FUCK the norm! Now I got no patience So sick of complacence With the D, the E, the F, the I, the A, the N, the C, the E Mind of a revolutionary, so clear the lane The finger to the land of the chains WHAT?! The "land of the free?" Whoever told you that is your enemy! Now something must be done About vengeance, a badge and a gun Cause I'll rip the mic, rip the stage, rip the system I was born to Rage Against em! Now action must be taken We don't need the key, we'll BREAK IN!! I've got no patience now... So sick of complacence, now... I've got no patience, now... So sick of complacence now.. Sick of, sick of, sick of, sick of...you.. Time...has...come...to...PAY!!! Know your enemy! Come on! Yes, I know my enemies! They're the teachers who taught me to fight me! Compromise! Conformity! Assimilation! Submission! Ignorance! Hypocrisy! Brutality! The elite! All of which are American dreams! All of which are American dreams! All of which are American dreams! All of which are American dreams! All of which are American dreams! All of which are American dreams! All of which are American dreams! All of which are American dreams!
