    "Shut Em Down [Album Version]" Lyrics

    Public Enemy

    I testified
    My mama cried
    Black people died
    When the other man lied
    See the TV, listen to me double trouble
    I overhaul and I'm comin'
    From the lower level
    I'm takin' tabs
    Sho nuff stuff to grab
    Like shirts it hurts
    Wit a neck to wreck
    Took a poll 'cause our soul

    Took a toll
    From the education
    Of a TV station
    But look around
    Hear go the sound of the wreckin' ball
    Boom and Pound
    When I
    Shut 'em down
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
    What I use in the battle for the mind
    I hit it hard
    Like it supposed
    Pullin' no blows to the nose
    Like uncle L said I'm rippin' up shows
    Then what it is
    Only 5 percent of the biz
    I'm addin' woes
    That's how da way it goes

    Then you think I rank never drank, point blank
    I own loans
    Suckers got me runnin' from the bank
    Civil liberty I can't see to pay a fee
    I never saw a way to pay a sap
    To read the law
    Then become a victim of a lawyer
    Don't know ya, never saw ya
    Tape cued
    Gettin' me sued
    Playin' games wit' my head
    What the judge said put me in the red
    Got me thinkin' 'bout a trigger to the lead
    No no
    My education mind say
    Suckers gonna pay
    There gonna be a day

    'Cause the troop they roll in
    To posse up
    Whole from the ground
    Ready to go
    Throw another round
    Sick of the ride
    It's suicide
    For the other side of town
    When I find a way to shut 'em down
    Who count the money
    In da neigborhood
    But we spendin' money
    To no end lookin' for a friend
    In a war to the core
    Rippin' up the poor in da stores
    Till they get a brother
    Kickin' down doors
    Then I figure I kick it bigger
    Look 'em dead in the eye
    And they wince
    Defense is pressurized
    They don't want it to be
    Another racial attack
    In disguise so give some money back
    I like Nike but wait a minite
    The neighborhood supports so put some
    Money in it
    Corporations owe
    Dey gotta give up the dough
    To da town
    or else
    We gotta shut 'em down
