The Heat Is On


"Fight the Power Pts. 1 & 2 is a 1975 protest funk song by The Isley Brothers, released on their T-Neck imprint. The anti-establishment song was originally thought of by Ernie Isley while the group was recording for another socially-conscious song, Harvest for the World. [...]
The Isleys inspired a rap version of its "fight the powers that be" battle cry by Public Enemy in their even more militant version fourteen years later."

(Alessandro)
Time is truly wastin'
There's no guarantee, yeah
Smiles in the makin'
You gotta fight the powers that be
Got so many forces
Stayin' on the scene
Givin' up all around me
Faces full o' pain

I can't play my music
(They say my music's too loud)
I kept talkin' about it
(I got the big run around)
And when I rolled with the punches
(I got knocked on the ground)
With all this bullshit going down

Time is truly wastin'
There's no guarantee, yeah
Smiles in the makin'
You gotta fight the powers that be
I don't understand it
People wanna see, yeah
Those that got the answers
Red tape in the way
I could take you in easy
That's just half the fun, oh boy
Seeking satisfaction
Keeps me on the run

I can't play my music
(They say my music's too loud)
I kept talkin' about it
(I got the big run around)
And when I rolled with the punches
(I got knocked on the ground)
With all this bullshit going down

Time is truly wastin'
There's no guarantee
Smile's in the makin'
You gotta fight the powers that be
If you & I can - we got the power
Fight it, fight the power
Fight it........baby, baby, baby, yeah
Fight it, fight the power...
