[Intro:] Huh! Yeah, we're comin' back in with another bombtrack Think ya know it's all of that, huh Hey yo, so check this out... Yeah! Know your enemy! C'mon! [Verse 1:] Born with insight and a raised fist A witness to the slit wrist As we, move into '92 Still in a room without a view Ya got to know, ya got to know That when I say go, go, go Amp up and amplify, defy I'm a brother with a furious mind Action must be taken We don't need the key, we'll break in Something must be done About vengeance, a badge and a gun 'Cause I'll rip the mic, rip the stage, rip the system I was born to rage against 'em Fist in ya face in the place and I'll drop the style clearly Know your enemy! Know your enemy! Yeah! Hey yo, get with this... uggh! [Verse 2:] Word is born Fight the war, fuck the norm Now I got no patience So sick of complacence With the D, the E, the F, the I, the A, the N, the C, the E Mind of a revolutionary, so clear the lane The finger to the land of the chains What? The "land of the free?" Whoever told you that is your enemy Now something must be done About vengeance, a badge and a gun 'Cause I'll rip the mic, rip the stage, rip the system I was born to rage against 'em Now action must be taken We don't need the key, we'll break in [Bridge: Maynard James Keenan] I've got no patience now So sick of complacence now I've got no patience now So sick of complacence now Sick of, sick of, sick of, sick of you Time has come to pay! Know your enemy! [Outro:] C'mon Yes, I know my enemies! They're the teachers who taught me to fight me! Compromise, conformity, assimilation, submission Ignorance, hypocrisy, brutality, the elite All of which are American dreams [х8]
