Give up, dumb down
forgetting all your dreams
so buy in, take out,
and grabbing all you see
you sold out your ideals
when they got in your way
forgot about compassion
when it affected your pay
so 1..2..3..and all i want to know
is money all you see
when you let your eyes close?

so go, and sell it, your life is what you make of it
so go, and sell it, this is the only life ive got and im not gunna waste it.

[Chorus]
go..fight..know your rights..demand your society provide a better life

nice house, nice car, nice life, nice yard
pre-planned outline, its not that fucking hard
well everyone can do it if you follow all the rules
be tough, believe in god, and graduate school.
something for nothing?
well look at whose paying
something for nothing?
well look at whose paying
your freedom is the currency
and you spend it so fast
with an artificial urgency, cause you know it

so go, and sell it, your life is what you make of it
so go, and sell it, this is the only life ive got and im not gunna waste it.

[Chorus]

    General CommentThese are the wrong lyrics.

    Here's what they should be:


    Rock and roll,
    expand and contract
    redisgn repackage and shove it all back
    into your face, false release
    reassign perspective put it all in its place
    well the notes are for profit
    and the violence is a whore
    corruption sex and power stand for rock and roll
    pay to play
    expand and contract
    redisgn repackage and shove it all back
    into your face, false release
    reassign perspective put it all in its place
    well the notes are for profit
    and the violence is a whore
    corruption sex and power stand for rock and roll

    from '55 to '99, what was once rebellion got
    consumed
    alive
    recreated, replicated, mass apeal you
    synthesize
    emotion but you still can't feel

    The sound of the street isn't here anymore
    Rap stole the bite from the working class poor

    from '55 to '99, what was once rebellion got
    consumed
    alive
    recreated, replicated, mass apeal you
    synthesize
    emotion but you still can't feel

    Rock and roll,
    expand and contract
    redisgn repackage and shove it all back
    into your face, false release
    reassign perspective put it all in its place
    well the notes are for profit
    and the violence is a whore
    corruption sex and power stand for rock and roll

    The sound of the street isn't here anymore
    Rap stole the bite from the working class poor
