Guru - Lift Your Fist (feat. The Roots) Lyrics

  • f/ The Roots
  • [Guru]
  • Yeah.. Guru, huh, The Roots
  • Yeah, c'mon y'all uh, lift your fist
  • Uhh, yeah, lift your fist c'mon
  • (Uhh)
  • [Chorus: Black Thought]
  • To all my people, just lift your fist
  • Seem like it ain't no peace, no justice
  • How you want it, the bullet or the microchip?
  • Either way you got to lift your fist; we get it down like this
  • To all my people, ball up your first
  • Seem like it ain't no peace, no justice
  • How you want it, the bullet or the microchip?
  • Either way you got to lift your fist
  • [Black Thought]
  • Yo, c'mon
  • We livin life close to the edge, don't push
  • But this ain't eighty-three and it's not the Cold Crush
  • It's kids on the street strapped, huffin that kush(?)
  • They eyein the next cat, livin all plush
  • I guess frustration make a brother do what he must
  • What's the combination that can make a human erupt
  • Team leaders gettin mutinied up, who couldn't read
  • the signs, thinkin the day and times is (??)
  • [Guru]
  • Indeed, we blast, refuse to kiss ass
  • Quick fast, ready to mash cause of a bugged out past
  • Swallow the pain, follow the mental terrain
  • It takes a hell of a man, nowadays to maintain
  • Garments bloodstained, face bruised and battered
  • Our eyes reflect the agony, of dreams that were shattered
  • And they love it, when we wild out and kill our own
  • but the greater responsibility, yes, is still our own
  • [Chorus]
  • [Guru]
  • Uhh, worldwide famine, ghetto people demand
  • that somebody do somethin soon, and let's examine
  • the facts, behind the violent attacks
  • Behind the daily gunplay the cocaine and the crack
  • Thug season - what's the reason for the treason?
  • Everybody's gotta eat, some gotta resort to thievin
  • Take money money make money money money..
  • [Chorus]
  • [Black Thought]
  • Yo - from the time they eyes open til the clock strike death
  • Brothers is stressed, walkin 'round holdin they chest
  • They got the government surveyin they steps and can't breathe
  • They dynamitin them projects to smithereens
  • Money comin but them days too few and far between
  • You tryin to taste just what the world's offering, ya'mean?
  • I seen enough to make a grown man scream
  • Brothers thirsty and hongry to get that thing
  • [Guru]
  • Too many tears of pain, too many years of struggle
  • Too many drops of blood, too many problems to juggle
  • Too few jobs available, too few schools equipped
  • Too few role models; just gangsters and pimps
  • Will you succumb, will your heart grow numb
  • or will you save the world, and use your mind like a gun?
  • I'm the one - I turn a stick-up kid to a soldier
  • Me and The Roots, word up, we takin over
  • [Chorus] w/ variations (2X)
