Os Rage Against the Machine são uma banda de rock norte-americana, uma das mais influentes e polêmicas da década de 1990.

Uma forte característica do RATM é a mescla de hip-hop, rock, funk, punk e heavy-metal, com letras enérgicas e politizadas. Junto com a música de protesto, demonstraram a luta pela causa política, contra a censura, a favor da liberdade e em prol dos menos afortunados.

O som do grupo é bastante diferenciado, devido ao estilo rítmico e vocal de Zack de la Rocha e as técnicas únicas de Tom Morello na guitarra.

Testify – Rage Against the Machine

The movie ran through me

The glamour subdued me
The tabloid untied me
I’m empty please fill me
Mr. anchor, assure me
That Baghdad is burning
Your voice, it is so soothing
That cunning mantra of killing
I need you, my witness
To dress this up so bloodless
To numb me and purge me now
Of thoughts of blaming you
Yes, the car is our wheelchair
My witness, you’re coughing
Only silence mocks the legless
Ones who travel now in coffins
On the corner

The jury’s sleepless
We found your weakness
And it’s right outside your door

Now testify
Now testify
It’s right outside your door
Now testify
Yes testify
It’s right outside your door

With precision you feed me
My witness, I’m hungry
Your temple, it calms me
So I can carry on
My slaving, sweating the skin right off my bones
On a bed of fire, I’m choking on the smoke that fills my home
The wrecking ball is rushing
Witness your blushing
The pipeline is gushing
While here we lie in tombs
While on the corner

The jury’s sleepless
We found your weakness
And it’s right outside your door

Now testify
Yeah testify
It’s right outside your door
Now testify
Now testify
It’s right outside your door

Mass graves for the pump and the price is set
And the price is set
Mass graves for the pump and the price is set
And the price is set
Mass graves for the pump and the price is set
And the price is set
Mass graves for the pump and the price is set
And the price is set

Who controls the past now controls the future
Who controls the present now controls the past
Who controls the past now controls the future
Who controls the present now?

Now testify
Testify
It’s right outside your door
Now testify
Testify
It’s right outside your door
