The prophet speaks
His language reeks
A vile dogma that steams and stinks
His plot is weak
He's an oil shiek
Information leak
Operation tweak

There's no security in the battlefield
Metal cannons shake the human shields
A brand new country they're gonna build
One more riot that's self willed

State out of control
It's out of control
State out of control
We're outta control, we're outta control
We're outta control, we're outta control!!!

Inject the poison into the bloodstream
Look over your shoulder, do what you're told
The probe is out, the watchdog grows
To incredible legnths and incredible lows

Well off your target you have missed
Deliberated lying and reckless
Don't get crushed by the iron fist
Resist resist resist resist resist!

    General CommentGreat song. It's on the need for speed underground soundtrack. Anyways it is about corruption. And the effects of corrupt governments. RESIST RESIST RESIST RESIST is my favourite part.

    General CommentI can't believe there's only 3 comments on this.
    Really not 100% sure what it's about but I love the sound and particularly this line
    "Don't get crushed by the iron fist
    Resist resist resist resist resist!"
    I just saw Rancid in orlando... I wish they would have played this song.
