Dead Prez – What If The Lights Go Out lyrics
Aye, aye, there go the rescue
Aye, there they go right there
They lookin' for us
There go the helicopter
Yo hey aye
Yo don’t do that man, you gon' get shot man
We right here
Yo, right here, right here
Aye where y'all going?
Man, they ain’t coming to help us man
Where y'all going?
We got to help our motherfucking self

Whatever gonna be I’m ready
Got my AR-15 ready
Water in my canteen ready
When the shit hit the fan I’m ready
Can’t get no dough off your car
Can’t eat no money, no credit
Can’t get no food from the stove
But the struggle won’t break my spirit
The strong survive and we perish
A man with a plan don’t panic
Survivor candles, solar panels
Chapters from my soldier manual
Organization, communication
Clarity, family, solidarity
The dollar bill is just a piece of paper
If the lights go out it ain’t gon' save ya

What if the lights go out?
Right now right now right now right now right now right now
What if the lights go out?
Right now right now right now right now right now right now

Raindrops falling from the sky
Teardrops falling from your eye
Is anybody out there on your side?
Lights out, it’s on the night
Disorganized humanity
Is borderline insanity
But don’t panic, be cool
No code to the streets and no rules
They don’t alert you, about the curfew
First they search you, then they merk you
Psychological, diabolical
Biological, highly volatile
Knocked on the door with Josephina
Dropped herself in your arena
What did we learn from Katrina?
I hope you can swim if you’re waiting on FEMA

What if the lights go out?
Right now right now right now right now right now right now
What if the lights go out?
Right now right now right now right now right now right now

Follow your heart, follow the light
The light within, it will show you the way
Follow your heart, follow the light
The light within, it will show you the way

What if the lights go out?
Right now right now right now right now right now right now
What if the lights go out?
Right now right now
