Pull the sword out the sheath keep the wolves off of the sheep

from Brother Ali – Fajr Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This is a metaphor:
If the wolves are the predatory lenders and corporate executives that take advantage of the American working class, then Ali may be suggesting that the government should intervene on behalf of those with no power to defend themselves. He may be alluding to the newly established role of the Consumer Financial Protection Committee in Congress asking them to do their job.
