Which side are you on? (refrain)

(G1)
See I gotta draw the line, I can't take it no more
If you ain't down with revolution what you waitin' for
Makin' money for suckas and our communities poor
Rippin' flags off of coffins, man, this ain't our war
Colonized and terrorized by the world's biggest killers
The US government, the biggest weapon and drug dealers
Fillin' prisons with children incarceratin' the future
Myspace and facebook, they got us stuck on computers
Stuck on stupid bumpin' music that's abusive to the shorties
And the nonsense that you spittin', they just listen and absorb it
I've been dormant, I've awoken, I'm a giant, I'm ready
I'm with the APPO in Oaxaca and we holdin' machetes

(RodStarz)
I rock hard like Palestinian children holdin' slingshots!
I'm with every single kid that's down for hip hop
For the culture, the life, what it really stands for
This music is resistance, it's the voice of the poor
I'm on the side of the workers, the teachers and lunchladies,
On the streets with brown mommys raisin' our brown babies,
I'm with youth organizers cleanin' up the Bronx river
I'm like Jaime Escalante when I stand and deliver
I'm with Evo Morales, man, he runnin' Bolivia
Distribution of the land so they could all live bigger
Im with Hugo and Fidel, Grandmaster and Melle Mel,
with the Panthers up in Queens, justice for Sean Bell,
I'm with Camacho Negron, im with Ojeda Rios,
freedom for Oscar Lopez, time to get an appeal,
I'm with Abu-Jamal, I'm with Assata Shakur,
I'm with the compas in Immokalee getting a penny more!

(chorus:)
Which side are you on?
Chi city!!!
Which side are you on?
South bronx!!!
Which side are you on?
Oaxaca!!!
Which side are you on?
Palestina!!

I'm with Elvira Arellano, I'm with Rudy Lozano,
I'm for a world without borders and a better tomorrow.
I'm with Mothers on the Move, I'm with sistas on the rise
I'm with La Pena del Bronx, keepin' culture alive
I'm with the kids at the Batey, watchin' a beat battle
Mean muggin' all these yuppies in shorts and brown sandels
I'm with parents everywhere fightin' for good schools
And for all these good women to find some good dudes
I'm with Salvador Allende, man, I'm Super Anti Momio!
Con el pueblo en la Havana grito Viva Cuba Cono!
I'm for immigrants, activists, unions, and freelancers
For djs, mcs, bombers, and breakdancers
I'm with editors, engineers, and indymedia
I'm with my family and my crew Rebel Diaz
I'm with Dj Disco Wiz, a Latino pioneer
Cuz it's dope when the elders break bread with the kids.

(G1)
I'm for tellin' the truth exposing the lies
Think about the dead soldiers when you're drivin' your ride
Them people died for the oil and Daddy Bush's revenge
I'm with the widows, the children, and the lonely best friends
I'm with Families Stayin Together as ONE
I'm not for the raids and the deportations!
I'm with Victor Toro and The M.I.R.
So watch out for those snitches in that unmarked car!
And for Lil Saulito, we gonna fight for your moms.
So we gonna shout her out, twice in one song.
I'm for twelve million workers and Elvira Arellano
I'm for a world without borders and a better tomorrow

(chorus)
