I'm anti-imperial
anti-trust
anti-gun, if the shit won't bust ??
anti-corporate, anti my essence ??
anti-snortin' those anti-depressants
but I'm not pro-poppin' 'em
I'm provocative
And pro-stoopin' them FBI operative
Who procession of the black man pounce
And hand you a sentence that you can't pronounce
I'm also anti-narco, anti-vice
9-1-1 marks the anti-christ
They anti-social, pointing those M-16s
Guess I'm anti-the-anti-nigger machine
Proletarian, funkadellic-parliamentarian
Pro-revolt in the 21st cent'arian
Pro funning up to congress sayin' "fuck it all"
But bring the people wit' you that's the protocol

This beat is joyful like jailbreaks
The whole world is anti united snakes
So check it out, anticipate the anti-venom
and move your antibody to this revolution rhythm
We goin' be fuckin' with them
Pro union, but most lost they bite
Anti-motherfuckers crossin' the strike
Take a look around, be for or against
But you can't do shit, if you ridin' the fence

Ride the fence
Now you don't really ride the fence
Now do you you really wanna ride the fence
Now, would you really wanna ride the fence
Don't ride the fence
Ride the fence
Now you don't really ride the fence
Now, would you really wanna ride the fence
But would you really wanna ride the fence
Don't ride the fence

I'm anti-uppin' your dollars with telekinesis
I done tried everyday and that shit decreases
Anti-the-anti-crimebill pieces
We need cash and that's the anti-thesis
Pro overthro' of the hip-hop nation
Pro layin' low 'til I'm off probation
Pro people control of the cash and corporation
Pro prophylactic, yet pro creation
Anti watered down drinks in fancy cups
Anti promoters who don't ante up
But I'm the anti-thug
I know that power is the most effective anti-drug
I'm pro Zapatista, pro Cuba viva
Pro La Raza, sayin' "?fuck La Migre"
"policia se asesina"

Let me show you what I mean
I'm anti-republican and democratic
If they self-desturct that's anti-climactic
Tired of being hunted like a antelope
Take the system by the throat
that's the antidote
So I pose a proposition
Take a look, be in support of opposition
Be proactive, proceed with confidence
'Cause you can't change shit by ridin' the fence

[refrain]
Ride the fence
Now you don't really ride the fence
Now, do you really wanna ride the fence
But, would you really wanna ride the fence
Don't ride the fence
Ride the fence
Now you don't really ride the fence
Now, would you really wanna ride the fence
But would you really wanna ride the fence
Don't ride the fence

    General CommentUse your mind and take a stand for your beliefs "Take a look around, be for or against
    But you can't do shit, if you ridin' the fence" or things will never ever change.
