Rage Against The Machine – Degeneration X lyrics

Are you ready?
(Ad libbed)
You think you can tell us what to do You think you can tell us what to
You think that you're better Well you better get ready)
Bow to the masters...
Break it down!
Degenerate into something fool.
We just got tired of doin what ya told us to do
That's a brace, boy yeah
That's a brace, little man
Break it down
Degeneration X!
Think you can tell me what to do?
You know who yer talkin to?
Well you better get used
To the way the ball bounces
I see what you got,
It measures in ounces
That's a brace, boy, Yeah
That's a brace, Little Man
Break it down!
Think your a big man?
Ha Ha Ha!
Treat you like your a little man
Yo tell me what it's like to be half a man
It must break your heart
To see what I am but
That's a brace, boy
That's a brace, little man Break it down!
(Degeneration X part doubles)
Think you can tell me what to do?
Know who you're talking to?
Just stop wanting me to be someone else
Put it away like a book on a shelf
That you can't read boy, Yeah
That you can't read Little Man
Break it down!
(Repeats and fades towards the end)
