"The Revolution" as written by Edward Theodore Riley, Y , Michael Joe Jackson, Ivan Rene Moore and Bruce Swedien....
Combat, better prepare to bust back. (x2)

The Revolution will be televised.

Bust back, bust back, bust back.k.k.k.k.k.k...

Yeah! The Revolution...(x2)

The Revolution will be televised.

The Revolution...

Welcome to the world
of computer chips and manuscripts
where everybody seals their lips.
Wrong or right we came to clear your sight.
Combat, better prepare to bust back.

TV screens get you the satellite beams.
Wrong or right we came to clear your sight.
This type of game comes as no surprise
Bloody divide
The Revolution will be televised.

The Revolution will be televised.
The Revolution will be a war of attrition.
Wars against the sleeping.
The Revolution will be fought in all forms of media.a.a.a.
It'll be fought on phone lines...
on cable modems...
on our cell phones
on our palm pilots...
The revolution will be fought on...st...t...t...t...t...t

We stand in the face of a quickening...
and the great dumbing down of our people
and in our greatest minds
and we wage war
by whatever means necessary...
By punishing awakening.
Into our sences and into our thoughts...
By blaming ___________ out of our Pleasantville.
Out of our gray slumber.

This revolution is not free.
This revolution is not free.

It's powerful.
This revolution is our revolution.
And we embrace our revolution.
We've been signing beyond the shakles of years of lies and false revelation.
This is our revolution and our revolution is key.

The revolution...(x3)
The Revolution will be televised ...

The revolution...(x3)
The Revolution will be televised ...

The Revolution will be televised
