Public Enemy (Cyclone Temple)

Telling the truth is like the edge of a knife Hit the wrong nerve it could cost your life All heard him Most feared him The media slants the truth Said he's the enemy [Bridge:] You're a rattle on the snake of democracy Can a free man speak or is he really not Just a boil on the ass of all decency See what King and X got Shot [Chorus:] Just a man teaching non-violence A sign of fear for those who rage free We want the truth and nothing but the truth We want the truth and nothing but Just a man who said let freedom ring She'd a tear for those who killed me We want the truth and nothing but the truth We want the truth and nothing but Why is it that those who speak of unity Can't escape the grip of fatality Pose a threat without the use of deadly force For those who follow lynched with no remorse [Bridge / Chorus] And they marched Bloody but unbowed Against the grain Only the strong survive Hear the battlecry We shall overcome Fight for the dream even when I must die
