there's nothing left for you to do,
except for standing down,
i'll fight you 'till the end of time,
and break your fucking crown.

(so what?) effect does it have on me?
(so what?) about your western ideologies?

no matter what you do,
no matter how hard you try,
i know you'll never get one up on...

it don't matter how much they all
try to bring us down
oppress us, arrest us,
we'll keep coming back around.

suppress our thoughts,
restrict our knowledge,
can't resist the underground scurge to bring,
you all crashing down.

no matter what you do,
no matter how hard you try,
i know you'll never get one up on me.

you'll never get one up on me
[repeatx5]

your global policies
are just a culture of poverty
you've got no excuses left
but your catastrophic effects.

trading arms for oil,
and oil for arms,
m-a-d causes no alarms,
trading arms for oil,
and oil for arms,
w-m-d tell me where's the harm.

you try, and you try to say they'll never make a difference
like he-man vs skelator and his battle of resistance,
would you have the balls to tell g.i. joe he's fighting for a lost cause,
or captain planet he's gotta clean up a nuclear war.

who did it? somebody else did.
who cares if it wasn't me?
why bother to pick up the pieces?
when everyone's dead you will...
who did it? somebody else did. [repeatx3]
when everyone's dead you wil see (see)
you'll never get one up on me [repeatx3]
