The Evil Empire Of Everything

“Non mollare la lotta!”, anche per la causa ambientalista.

Il ritornello cita Get Up, Stand Up di Bob Marley e infatti è cantato col figlio di Bob, Ziggy Marley.
I occupy the planet Earth
I testify, it's a piece of work
I'm gratified down to the dirt
Been around the world a few times, I seen the hurt
Quakes, hurricanes, and tornadoes
Warning times to man's designs
Under that concrete y'all call the street
Is the heart of land, you can hear the beat

The pain in all the lies, uh
And the pain in all them lives
The pain of losin' homes, yeah
With the pain of the unknown, yeah
And the pain of what you spent
The pain of government
No matter what you say, you don't pay
Here they come to take it away
So don't give it up

Don't give up
You don't give up the fight
Don't give up
You don't give up the fight

The foreign lands and the seven seas
Radiation is the world's disease
Bringing nations down to the knees
Mother Nature, she ain't pleased
Trees diseased, deep freeze
Doin' us like that government cheese
Smell that burning in the breeze
Summertime, a hundred-twenty degrees

The pain in all the lies, uh
And the pain in all them lives
The pain of losin' homes, yeah
With the pain of the unknown, yeah
And the pain of what you spent
The pain of government
No matter what you say, you don't pay
Here they come to take it away
So don't give it up

(Hey!) Pay close attention
Don't be distracted by invention
All the rappers around the nation
This is how you'll find redemption

So shut 'em down in appreciation
Of the world itself and God's creation
What good is the 'hood if you up to no good
Them government gangsters would hang you on wood
Stop the tape, my mind's stuck in sixty-eight
Haight Asbury, now our ass buried in hate
I paraphrase beyond the gaze
A haze hovers over a crowd that disobeys

The pain in all the lies, uh
And the pain in all them lives
The pain of losin' homes, yeah
With the pain of the unknown, yeah
And the pain of what you spent
The pain of government
No matter what you say, you don't pay
Here they come to take it away
So don't give it up

Don't give up
You don't give up the fight
Don't give up
You don't give up the fight

"How to fight the power, cannot run and hide"
"How to fight the power, cannot run and hide"
"How to fight the power, cannot run and hide"
"How to fight the power, cannot run and hide"
"How to fight the power, cannot run and hide, shouldn't be suicide"
"How to fight the power, cannot run and hide, shouldn't be suicide"
"How to fight the power, cannot run and hide, shouldn't be suicide"
"How to fight the power, cannot run and hide, shouldn't be suicide"
