Yes you've got to stand up, stay strong, start moving in the right direction 
Don't wait too long, for people promising divine intervention 
Nineteen nine three, now I'm taking matters into my own hands 
So fast, I can't see a revolution is the only way we can change, change, change 
I want to fight the power 
  
Well it's hard times, white lines, kids of nine getting down with gun crime 
War zones, no homes, ain't it the time we gave the dog a bone 
Say brothers, sisters, get up and put yourself in the picture 
This time you know a revolution is the only way we can change, change, change 
I want to fight the power 
  
Question, answer, shake your hand and smile for the camera 
But it's no good you should spend time in your neighborhood 
Where black kids, white kids 
Now you're working overtime to be a crack kid 
No job, no cash a revolution is the only way we can change, change, change 
I want to fight the power 
  
Still we don't seem to understand we need a revolution 
Everybody wants a revolution 
  
Now who is this man, I'm having trouble knowing where I'm coming from 
Preconceptions, it's eternal human infection 
One chance, learn how you're gonna change the habit of a lifetime my soul
Concerned that a revolution is the only way that we can change, change, change 
I want to fight the power 
  
Higher, higher, now we're gonna learn how to fight the power 
Sunshine, new day, I only know how to go to the right way 
Faster, stronger I help my brother and my soul lives longer 
Blinded I can't see a revolution is the only way that we can change, change, change 
I want to fight the power 
  
No doubt in time, everything is sweet sunshine but in the 
Meantime, mankind is having trouble where to draw the line 
We still don't, respect, and yet I thought we had intellect 
Sometimes I think the music is the only hope we have for revolution 
  
Still we don't seem to understand we need a revolution 
Everybody needs a revolution
