lyrics

ARISE AS ONE

Ahh, I don’t really know what to say man…
Yo, yo, check…

Verse 1:

How do you reduce your enemy to the power of three
it’s basic mathematics, don’t take an hour to see
how the fat cat multiplies til he devours the cream
it’s division of the masses, either cower or flee
private militia’s paid off at an hourly fee
degress of corruption in the east from the prowling beast
the iron triangle, warfare? It’s a power machine
there’s no fair, no fowl, just a howling scream
innocent kids massacred by our artillery
ask hillary, ask hague, grenades and typhoons
were made to fight through
i’m thinking why choose sides man we’ll both die soon…

Hook:

See we keep marching to the drums of war
it’s dumb we don’t wonder
whose thumb that we’re under
so when I hear the thunder roar
on a cold London night, thumbs are soar
X2

Verse 2:

Like the weed and the crack I stay seated in the streets
like the weed in the crack I stay seeded in the beast
bleeding coz this grief has got me needing my beliefs more than ever
and more than ever
just like the weed in the crack I stay reachin for the sky
preaching that this systems gonna be of our demise
and realise that love is our only means to survive
coz we’re taught to horde cash but can’t afford to relate
don’t ignore the borders you’ve drawn in your brain
coz after darkness, horizon, its sun
since we’re essentially light, we’re arising as one
we’re arising as one

Hook:

See we keep marching to the drums of war
it’s dumb we don’t wonder
whose thumb that we’re under
so when I hear the thunder roar
on a cold London night, thumbs are soar
X2

Verse 3:

I stay writing, way through the slumber calls
or my numbers called coz I know this chain
bleak streets, can’t speak coz I’m choked with rage
with these coked up bankers
britain aint’ broke if you focus straight its an open cage
complete with no gates, just fences and hopeless days
and take note, stay focused, coz you know this game
this is the last days, stay fighting the beast
riots with police, bright lights blinding the streets
armed police, they stay sparking the heat
flares fire in the streets where we marching for peace
watching carcasses go hard on the street
hearts scarred, stay dark coz we’re marred by the grief
no last laugh when you dance with deceased
no, half heart in this part of the scene
no camera’s, action, depart for the green
take life in two hands hold fast and believe
we’ll, outlast this whole farce to deceive
if we’re the last left breathing we’ll blast and we’ll squeeze
police in parks, streets, bear the mark of the beast
there’s a whole world to save, we’re the masters and queens
but we march for the present coz the past is a dream
march for the present coz the past is a dream

Hook:

See we keep marching to the drums of war
it’s dumb we don’t wonder
whose thumb that we’re under
so when I hear the thunder roar
on a cold London night, thumbs are soar
X2
