Me I started a class war? C'mon you gotta be kiddin
It was goin on before I was born. Ain't even all that hidden
Oh it might be forbidden on your corporate controlled nightly network news
but I'm about to bring a few reviews, make ol' Mr. Buffet sing the blues
cause see I can't really start a class war no matter what I do
but hey maybe the one that stirrin up a class war was you

When you forced serfs to work your plantations
that's what started your class war
Disney sweatshops full of Hatians
that's what started your class war
Bernie's billions in Worldcom fraud
that's what started your class war
Unleashing fire hoses and dogs
that's what started your class war

There was class war in 1215 class war in 1492
and when they put the Irish in those work houses, that was class war too
draggin Africans overseas and whippin em till they bleed
And oops took too many to feed and a few of em got disease
so hey let's throw em in the sea what the hell they're property
And you still wanna say the one started up a class war is me

When you put people in chains
that's what started your class war
Deliberately destroying their brains
that's what started your class war
Warrantless inspections
that's what started your class war
How bout syphillis injections
that's what started your class war

Remember United Fruit using U. S. troops on the Guatemalan poor
remember Ronal Reagan's boy Ollie North in Nicaragua and Salvador
remember CIA assassinations in Chile, Panama, Ecuador
destroying those duly elected democracies you lying hypocrites
are always claiming to be for
Yeah. I'll tell you right where you can stick your starting class war
Your PR firm can help you spin it Don't knock it until you're finishe

IMF funds and World Bank loans
that's what started your class war
Who, who jailed Mother Jones
that's what started your class war
Who's telling lies into your vision
that's what started your class war
Who's closing schools but building up prisons
that's what started your class war

Channel one in our kids' schools
that's what started your class war
Changing all of our food like fools
that's what started your class war
Mr. Bourgeoisie make life so tough
that's what started your class war
When the poor have had enough
that's what started your class war

Not me you know it's just a simple case of what you reap
still being what you sew
That's why you look around these days and you see so many revolutionary cats
because when you have a whole society built on rat race
You got winners but they're rats
