It's time, Alright
For us to stand up and fight
It's time, Alright
To set the story straight tonight

I look around today
I see a messed up place
This world we live in
Doesn't have a clue
About the things you say
Decisions that get made
They affect our lives
So where's our try, yeah

It's time, Alright
For us to stand up and fight
It's time, Alright
To set the story straight tonight

You say we waste our time
Leading worthless lives
At school and home
We've done nothing wrong
Judge us on what we wear
And how we cut our hair
But we're the future
So it's up to you Yeah
It's up to you Oh Yeah

It's time, Alright
For us to stand up and fight
It's time, Alright
To set the story straight tonight

You'd rather run away
You'd rather run away
You'd rather run away
You'd rather run away

It's time, Alright
For us to stand up and fight
It's time, Alright
It's just not right
It's just not right
It's just not right Yeah!

It's time, Alright
For us to stand up and fight
It's time, Alright
To set the story straight tonight

You'd rather run away
You'd rather run away
You'd rather run away
You'd rather run away...

    General CommentThis is about going in a bar and being the king of the bar...you know, not letting anyone trample over you "Set the story straight". It says "Run Away" at the end because normally no one acts tuff, they just go to bars to have a good time, Xcept rappers of course, damn them weirdos
