Our time has come, watch me set it off
It’s been a while but we back
So you can count it loss

We lay and wait, don’t hesitate
When opportunity knocks
Break the locks and rush the gates
Seize the day, we got moves to make
It’s got to be now
Cause we’re half past late

Say what you say, but you ain’t shown me nothin
If you want me to feel you
Then you best to show me something
All bark and no bite, talking all hype
I hang with the illest
You I don’t recognize

Desensitize and paralyze
Sabotage headquarters
Flood your bloodlines, we sterilize

Here we come
Chant down dem Babylon
The wicked man when he sees me I go run
Me understand
Why dem cowards don’t want none
Underground blaze the sound to Armageddon

Chorus (2x) :
RISE - Let your spirit fly
RISE- Stand up for yourself
RISE- Hold your head up high

Our time has come
Set it off

Choose my battles, unravel your crew
Dismantle, they still can’t handle or fathom
What I throw at ‘em

I can’t imagine, they babblin’
Acting like I’m laughing, don’t find it funny
But I smile at your sarcasm

You plastic, so tragic, you fake
So you mask it, no gimmicks, no antics
We real and we’ve outlasted

Your phoniness, so you best to come correct
You want to disrespect
Why do cowards talk the loudest

Papa didn’t raise no punk
On everything I love, if you ready
Then come and get it son

Overpower the strong tower
Infiltrate top ranks
Count down the final hour

Here we come
Chant down dem Babylon
The wicked man when he sees me I go run

Me understand
Why dem cowards don’t want none
Underground blaze the sound to Armageddon


We made it this far don’t you quit on me

    General CommentThis is an awsome song. POD is heavy but not too heavy. Right to the point where its enjoyable. This was the best way to start off Satalite. A must for fans. I give it a thumbs up!

    General Commentfor those who havent heard this song yet, it rocks. i feel that this is the best song form pod. i love them because they are my brothers, but this song takes the cake, it is truely about living radically for the Lord which this song oozes with. in todays times its about being hardcore, and pod is hardcore, they influenced me to be more hardcore, and they encourage me to stay strong, and dont give up no matter how hard it gets. because being a Jesus Freak in todays times isnt easy, but the Lord gives me strength to endurance and he gave me music from pod to uplift my soul, so that i may glorify his name.
    "dont you quit on me!!!!" "Papa didnt raise no punk!!!"

    General CommentThis is a great song. I haven't heard a P.O.D. that I haven't liked though. I personally think this is kind of a song that shows that no matter the troubles we face all we need is to have faith in the Almighty. Because when we are weak He uses us for great things. So my quick interpretaion is fight for Him and the spirit will always be there for you.

    General CommentI hate to make a non-lyrical comment, but, for the most part, the heavier the band is, the more talented they are on their instruments. It's dumb to be prejudice against music for some meaningless reason. Only talent matters, that's what music is for. I'm sorry, but I had to counterpoint Aftermath. Don't get me wrong, POD is very talented, the bassist is jaw-dropping on Snuff The Punk.
