Speak upon an issue strain your brain tissue
But you don't raise your voice 'cause you're afraid someone will diss
Words are needing saying so you'd better say them quick
'Cause second lady Tipper's gonna zip a fucking lip

And what are you going to do when Uncle Scam has got your tongue-tied
I don't waste a word 'cause I know well that more than one died
To get across the thought the point the words we take for granted
But you live in the U.S. Tianamen Square's another planet

Injustice anywhere threatens my security
'Cause I'm no shining example of a racial purity
Mr. David Duke is not a fluke or threat or promise
He's a mighty voting block to keep the real humans honest

You've got to get up stand up be conscious every day
Cast your vote in the ballots plus the dollars that you pay
If St. Ids's supplies the sorrow then it's time to get wise
Cast out the bottle open your eyes and rise


From the center of my being I'm seeing a growing movement
In my youth I was seeking truth where as now a social improvement
Generation X has got to flex on politicians
When they're on a power mission and money makes their decisions

Hypocrisy has got to be the root of this democracy
It'd mean a lot to me to see a Mabon lobotomy
All discrimination contradicts our father's nation
Give us your sick and tired and hungry unless they're sick and tired
and Haitian

Because we hate them foreigners and imports but then again
We never seemed too fond of our own Native Americans
Ethnic cleansing we say is something we're against
But it's called domestic policy on this side of the fence

We're willing to step in and get in and push Iraqis off of you
It's just too bad they've got no oil out in Bosnia
We're willing to make a move but it depends on who's attacking you
'Cause damn we still have a lot of money tied up in South Africa

I'd look in the paper but I can't see through all the smoke
Everyone's complaining but not registered to vote
It takes a lot of effort in the nineties to survive
Give it up for revolution if you can't compromise


Come down all youth when me say open your eyes
Lick a shot if you know you must rise
Come down all youth when me say open your eyes
Give it up for revolution if you can't compromise

Come down all youth when me say open your eyes
Lick a shot if you know you must rise
Come down all youth when me say open your eyes
