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

The system ain't gon' change
Unless we make it change

The White House is the rock house
Uncle Sam is the motha fuckin' pusha man

What I gotta do to make sure ya understand?
Spit it on a beat by Timbaland?
What I gotta do?
Kid-nap 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 gets nervous every verse
Revolutionary curse words
First come, first serve
It ain't no lost love
Freedom cost blood
That's word to the Mossberg, nigga

[Hook]
We need a revolution
We need a revolution
The system ain't gon' change
Unless we make it change
(Black power)
R.B.G.'s x3
Nigga this that R.B.G.'s
X2

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 killing
I can feed these hungry children
I can stop racism, a product of capitalism
I can unpack the prisons
And turn religion back to we livin'
I can stop the Bloods from peelin' - caps
And the Crips from peelin' - Back
And get your cousin off crack
I can stop the war that's in the black hood
Get the money right back to the poor for sure and
If you wit me nigga , let me know
Let's go, if ya really wanna know
(I wanna know)
(We need a real solution)
Motherfuck they constitution!

R.B.G.'s off in this thang
They hip to the game
Gettin' off the chains

The system ain't gonna change, unless we make it change

You are now listening to WRBG - The People's Radio
It's a takeover, not a makeover
