- LyricsRobert's got a quick hand.
He'll look around the room,
he wont tell you his plan.
He's got a rolled cigarette
hanging out his mouth.
- LyricsRise above, gonna start the war!
Oh, what you want, what you need,
What'd you come here for?
Well, an eye for an eye and an 'F' for fight
They're taking me down as the prisoners riot
- LyricsSometimes life it takes you by the hair, pulls you down
Before you know it, it's gone and you're dead again
I've been in places and I won't pretend
That I'd make it out just to fall on my head
Wake up strange I take the walk downstairs
- LyricsCall it what you want
(Yeah yeah yeah)
Call it what you want
(Yeah yeah yeah)
I said just call it what you want
- LyricsNever want to stand upon myself
Never want to get in the way I said it
I don't know what the plan is,
But you can share with me.
'Cause I'll be a listening ear to everything you say
