All that I feel
All that I want to be
Burned, blistered and raw
Tearing apart
All that is sane to me

Rain down blood like fire
Born to sire
Racist breed
His dominance of ignorance
Was rhetoric that made no sense
Some believed in all the lies
But in my mind I know what’s wrong
Way too fucking strong
Taste revenge on my tongue



And now is my time to rise
And now is our time to rise
Our time

Rise, I can’t feel like you
Rise, never be like you
Rise, time for us all to
