Mic Check Lyrics

by Rage Against The Machine

Oh wait a minute now
Ha aha c'mon
Wait a minute now
Check

To the young R to the E the B to the E the L
Never give up just live up fed upon America
I be spittin' it up rippin' it up even amount in each cup
To my brothers burning bare feet on black top
Whose curled neath the shadows from the gaze of the cops
Whose huntin' for 9 to 5's through factory locks
Is now hunted on this modern day auction block

Mic check, ha aha
I be the anti-myth rhythm rock shocker
Mic check, ha aha
I be the anti-myth rhythm rock shocker, what?
Mic check, ha aha
I be the anti-myth rhythm rock shocker
Mic check, ha aha
I be the anti-myth rhythm rock shocker, what?

Te te te te te huh
Back in

Flexin' and mashin' with complex text
Fast and in a fashion that snap back necks
Quicker than a fed cash the company checks
Huh, I be the fire only Marley could catch
Yes, I be the flame in the cellar beware
Where nameless cold millions gaspin' for air
The naked and wage less scream within cages, huh
They make you pull your shit just to get your share, what?

Mic check, ha aha
I be the anti-myth rhythm rock shocker
Mic check, ha aha
I be the anti-myth rhythm rock shocker, what?
Mic check, ha aha
I be the anti-myth rhythm rock shocker
Mic check, ha aha
I be the anti-myth rhythm rock shocker, what?

Huh go, huh go, huh go, huh go
Huh go, huh go, huh go, huh go
Huh go, huh go, huh go, huh go
Huh go, huh go, huh go, huh go
Welcome down with the warrior sound, uh

With this mic device I spit nonfiction
Who got the power this be my question
The mass or the few in this torn nation?
The priest, the book or the congregation?
Politricks who rob and hold down your zone?
Or those who give the thieves the key to their homes?
The pig who's free to murder one Shucklak
Or survivors who make a move and murder one back?
