Rage Against The Machine – Killing In The Name lyrics
Killing in the name of!

Some of those that wear forces
Are the same that burn crosses.
Some of those that wear forces
Are the same that burn crosses.
Some of those that wear forces
Are the same that burn crosses.
Some of those that wear forces
Are the same that burn crosses.

Killing in the name of!
Killing in the name of!

And now you do what they told ya
And now you do what they told ya
And now you do what they told ya
And now you do what they told ya
And now you do what they told ya
And now you do what they told ya
And now you do what they told ya
And now you do what they told ya
And now you do what they told ya
And now you do what they told ya
And now you do what they told ya
And now you do what they told ya

Those who died
Are justified
For wearing the badge, they're the chosen whites
You justify
Those that died
By wearing the badge, they're the chosen whites
Those who died
Are justified
For wearing the badge, they're the chosen whites
You justify
Those that died
By wearing the badge, they're the chosen whites

Some of those that wear forces
Are the same that burn crosses.
Some of those that wear forces
Are the same that burn crosses.
Some of those that wear forces
Are the same that burn crosses.
Some of those that wear forces
Are the same that burn crosses.

Killing in the name of!
Killing in the name of!

And now you do what they told ya
And now you do what they told ya
And now you do what they told ya
And now you do what they told ya
And now you do what they told ya, now you're under control
And now you do what they told ya, now you're under control
And now you do what they told ya, now you're under control
And now you do what they told ya, now you're under control
And now you do what they told ya, now you're under control
And now you do what they told ya, now you're under control
And now you do what they told ya, now you're under control

Those who died
Are justified
For wearing the badge, they're the chosen whites
You justify
Those that died
By wearing the badge, they're the chosen whites
Those who died
Are justified
For wearing the badge, they're the chosen whites
You justify
Those that died
By wearing the badge, they're the chosen whites
Come on!

(Guitar Solo)
Uggh!

    They are saying that the government, the people who "wear forces". As in, military personnel or people who control the military, who say they keep you safe, are the same people who will burn a cross of something that is there as a guideline of life and way to make it to a perfect afterlife. And that they won't do what the government tells them because the government isn't anymore right then you and I. They are corrupt and the nation shall fall. Go to beast and the harlot lyrics and read the interpretation there by truthofknowledge or someone like that. It is scary accurate.

    Killing in the name of! Killing in the name of.
    Gotta do what they told ya. (x3).
    Those who die are justified, for wearing the bade and are chosen white. Justify, those who die for wearing the badge and are chosen white! Then the rest is right I guess. (i think I didn't read it all.) and that's it.
