Rage Against The Machine - How I Could Just Kill A Man Lyrics




Hey don't miss out on what you're passing,
you're missing the hootah of the funky Buddha,
eluder of the fucked up style's that get wicked
so come on as I start to kick it,
'Cause we're like outlaws striding while suckers are hiding,
jump behind the bush when you see me driving by
hanging out my window, and my magnum taking out some putas
acting kind of loco I'm just another local
kid from the street getting paid for my vocals.
Here is something you can't understand,
How I could just kill a man

Here is something you can't understand,
How I could just kill a man
Here is something you can't understand,
How I could just kill a man
Here is something you can't understand,
How I could just kill a man
Here is something you can't understand

I be doing all the dumb shit yo
'Cause nothing is coming from it
I'm not gonna waste no time fucking around I got ya humming
humming coming at ya! Then you know I had to gat ya!
time for some action just a fraction of friction
I got the clearance to run the interference
in to your sattle light shining a battle light
Sen got the gat and I know that we'll gat you right
here's an example just a little sample:
how could I just kill a man
one time tried to come in my home take my chrome
I said yo it's on. Take cover son or you're assed out
how do you like my chrome then I watched the rookie pass out
didn't have to blast him but I did any way, young punk had to pay
so I just killed a man

here is something you can't understand,
how I could just kill a man
Here is something you can't understand,
How I could just kill a man
Here is something you can't understand,
How I could just kill a man
Here is something you can't understand,
How I could just kill a man

It's gonna be a long time before I finish
one of the many missions that I have to establish
to lite my spliff ignite you with incite so if you ain't down
bullshit. Say some punk tried to get you for your auto
would call the one time and play the role model?
No! I think you'll play like a thug
next hear the shot of a magnum slug, humming coming at ya!
yeah you know I'm going to gat ya. How do you know where I'm at
when you haven't been where I've been, understand where I'm coming from.
While you're up on the hill in your big home
I'm out here risking my dome,
just for a bucket or a fast ducket,
just to stay alive yo I got to say fuck it.

here is something you can't understand,
how I could just kill a man.
here is something you can't understand,
how I could just kill a man.
here is something you can't understand,
how I could just kill a man.
here is something you can't understand,
how I could just kill a man.

Here is something you can't understand,
How I could just kill a man
Here is something you can't understand,
How I could just kill a man
Here is something you can't understand,
How I could just kill a man
Here is something you can't understand,
How I could just kill a man
Here is something you can't understand,
How I could just kill a man
Here is something you can't understand,
How I could just kill a man
Here is something you can't understand,
How I could just kill a man
Here is something you can't understand,
How I could just kill a man

How I could just kill a man
How I could just kill a man

  7. bevy bear

    ✏️ 😋

  8. NNJ

    Now this is how you make a cover. Take the original and completely make it your own. I prefer this over the original and the original is one of the most iconic hip hop songs of all time. I mean how cool is that

  9. Jason Martinez

    Can't decide who did a better version of this song their both amazing!

  10. Gungywamp

    Wow, no Trump/5th avenue jokes in the first couple dozen comments. Big shame.

  11. Kevistic Mac fly

    Biggest explosive cocktail ever heard!!!

  12. Ethan Wunder

    there's 100% percent chance you headbanged at 1:24

  13. 40 4

    When he said "putos" bro I really felt that

  14. Hayden Clay

    There is a huge gap between Rage Against The Machine singles.

  15. Hayden Clay

    This is the final Rage Against The Machine single to release in the 2000s decade.

  16. Hayden Clay

    This version of this song was released in October of 2001.

  17. Mark Carter

    UltimateGITTPUMMPPTTTTSONG!!!!!!!

  18. BigC

    They need this in GTA

    Mark Carter

    Soothing my groovin

    Metalhead Michael

    The Cypress Hill version's in San Andreas, so close enough

  19. Robin Alberti

    I'd never got a woman but I'm gonna put that whore in a fucking barrel.....


    K...A...R...M...A....

    Robin Alberti

    Because my husband and my daughter bitch? Where the fuck are they?

    Robin Alberti

    Bye Felicia

  20. Robin Alberti

    one time tried to come in my home....

    bye bye

    Jayden Hamley

    Robin Alberti
    Hilarious.

  21. Barba Ro

    Maybe one day I'll understand it.

  22. Ammar Siddiqui

    better than any rap nowadays

  23. P M

    I love this version

  24. Joe Rogaine

    Leftist propaganda aside, they're a pretty sick band

    Joe Rogaine

    @InkyGhoul also, Zach de la Rocha grew up in Irvine CA..... And has songs about being in a gang... All the homes in Irvine CA were and still are worth a million dollars a home, and had the lowest crime rate in the NATION, for years. He's bullshitting you, he's a propagandist

    Harold Sullivan

    Joe Rogaine fuck off class traitor

    Joe Rogaine

    @Harold Sullivan Tell that to Zach, communist traitor to humanity.

    THOTslayer

    They aren't leftist as much as they are independent. Tom is Trump is a Trump supporter and they called out Obama on his unconstitutional war on terror.

    StrawberryFields Forever

    @THOTslayer lol, Tom is the furthest thing from a Trump supporter, he had 'Fuck Trump' written on the back of one of his guitars and has called him an 'orange-faced demagogue'.He identifies as a socialist and hasn't been shy about this. The entire band is heavily left leaning. Not sure why you think they're anything but that.

  25. Reeses Inpieces

    RATM has gotten me through some tough times

    Chozeh Abaddon

    How so? By whining?

    InkyGhoul

    @Chozeh Abaddon Probably by giving him the attitude to say fuck it.

    Neon Deity

    @InkyGhoul When Rage Against the Machine Makes you a total badass

    False Flag

    @Chozeh Abaddon Why the fuck are you here if you dont like them you stupid fat headed bitch

  26. Sierra Strawn

    "...and you you know I had a getcha!" Nuff said- if you dont get it, esp. by now, ya never will.

  29. Jeffrey Ober

    The way rage could do whatever they wanted to do and it always turned out kickass

  30. KONNOR KaRn

    My favorite song by them

    evulmievl

    Be even better if it was by them. Great cover though.

  31. Mrsteisag2

    Jim Boeheim right now

  32. Leonard Ghostal

  34. Drew Hawkins

    Acting kinda loco I'm just another loco kid

    Ricardo Simoni

    Yes indeed "Acting kinda loco, I'm just another local kid"

  35. Judeau Tenebrae

    I like the original and I like RATM. I used to be scared to mix the two. I bet people used to feel that way about chocolate and peanut butter.

    pyronite59

    “You got your chocolate on my peanut butter!”
    “No, you got your peanut butter on my chocolate!”
    ..........*single shot fired*.........One man walks away with the recipe for Reese’s.

  41. Cream Soda

    This is one of the rare times where I like the cover more than the original.

    Sam Dryden

    If you could put the original vocals over this you'd have something.

    balisong boi

    Inquisitive Cameron

    Eric m

    This statement speaks volumes... The ghetto attitude I deal with daily has taken any empathic value from those who display the attitude...
