Asian Dub Foundation – Modern Apprentice lyrics

Written by: lisa das

I am a modern apprentice
I believe in the life-long learning
'ain't gonna take away this natural yearning
To know the truth
The truth about the lies you've been giving
It's not a state of affairs that that I'm prepared to live in
I will find out for myself
No I ain't gonna be your clone
Ain't gonna be working my fingers to the bone
To feed your mouths
When the poor around me are starving
And you the fat cats are sitting pretty and laughing
I will do it in spite of you
I'll educate myself
Then I'll empower others
So that we can make our own wealth
Yes I'll empower others
So that we can make our own wealth
