Martin Luther King died for his love! Kennedy died talking about something he couldn't even understand, some kind of generalized love, and he never even backed it up! He was shot down! Bullshit, Love is the only weapon with which I got to fight. I've got a hell of a lot of weapons to fight! I got my claws, I got cutlasses, I got guns, I got dynamite, I got a hell of a lot of fight! I'll fight! I'll fight! I will fight! I will fight! I will fight! I will fight!

Let them hear it in the night! Yes, well fight! Theyre listening. Let the night roar! Let the night roar, because they can hear us, they know we mean it. Well kill them if they come!

Mao Tse Tung said change must come
Change must come thru the barrel of a gun
Not thru talkin' and not through waitin'
And sittin' around just contemplatin' the facts
'Cos we know what they are
So let Mao Tse Tung be your guidin' star
Pick up a gun and learn how to fight
All thru the day and all thru the night
'Til come the day when the last fight's won
I want you to listen, son
'Cos Mao Tse Tung said change must come
Thru the barrel of a gun
I want you to listen, son
Change must come
Change must come thru the barrel of a gun

Mao Tse Tung said
Change must come
Mao Tse Tung said
Change must come
Mao Tse Tung said
Change must come
Change must come thru the barrel of a gun

Okay. What was the basic premise of Mao? Mao Tse Tung said theres only one way a revolution can come. Do you know, Millie? How did Mao Tse Tung say the only way you can bring a revolution and keep it?

Where you onliest way I think you can keep it is by being at peace and being honorable.

Oh, shit, I aint no being at peace? Mao Tse Tung said that?

Oh

No no no no

Wait a minute Oh

hes the head of China. Hes the head of the Revolution of China.

No, Im sorry.

He marched 6000 peopleon the Long March.

I had my mind on something else.

Okay then, wha wha whatd he say? There only one way you can bring about a revolution for people.

Only way you can only way you can bring it on, that by is by killing.

Well, what yes, thats okay, Im going to let you pass it but whatd he say? He had a nice little phrase that everybody should know. Change only comes

Oh

You got it. Change comes through

through by a barrel of gun.

Thats right, senior. And thats good. Cos you by rights would have every reason to forget some things. Change must come through the barrel of gun, said Mao Tse Tung. This place would be a paradise tomorrow if every department had a supervisor with a submachine gun.

Let them hear it in the night! Yes, well fight! Let the night roar, because they can hear us, they know we mean it. Well kill them if they come!

Mao Tse Tung said
Change must come
Mao Tse Tung said
Change must come
Mao Tse Tung said
Change must come
Change must come thru the barrel of a gun
