PROPHETS OF RAGE
"No Sleep 'Til Cleveland"

[Intro:]
No sleep 'til - Brooklyn

[Pre-verse: B-real]
Yeah
Ain't nothin' but a party y'all
[Pre-Hook]
No sleep 'til - Brooklyn

[Verse 1: Chuck D & B-real]
2016 the number another summer (get down)
Sound of the funky drummer
Music hitting your heart cause I know you got soul
(Brothers and sisters, hey)
Listen if you're missing y'all
Swinging while I'm singing
Giving whatcha getting
Knowing what I know
While the Black bands sweating
And the rhythm rhymes rolling
Got to give us what we want
Gotta give us what we need
Our freedom of speech is freedom or death
We got to fight the powers that be
Lemme hear you go

[Hook:]
No sleep 'til - Brooklyn (gotta fight the power)

[Verse 2: Chuck D & B-real]
Elvis was a hero to most
But he never meant shit to me you see
Straight up racist that sucker was
Simple and plain
Mother fuck him and John Wayne
Cause I'm Black and I'm proud
I'm ready and hyped plus I'm amped
Most of my heroes don't appear on no stamps
Sample a look back you look and find
Nothing but rednecks, for 400 years if you check
Don't worry be happy
Was a number one jam
Damn if I say it you can slap me right here
(Get it) let's get this party started right
Right on, c'mon
What we got to say
Power to the people no delay
To make everybody see
In order to fight the powers that be

[Hook:]
No sleep 'til - Brooklyn (gotta fight the power)

[Guitar Solo]

[Outro:]
No sleep 'til - Brooklyn (gotta fight the power)
No sleep 'til - Brooklyn (gotta fight the what y'all)
No sleep 'til - Cleveland (gotta fight the power)
No sleep 'til - Cleveland (gotta fight the powers that be)
