Lyrics[2]

  • Skin head, dead head
  • Everybody gone bad
  • Situation, aggravation
  • Everybody allegation
  • In the suite, on the news
  • Everybody dog food
  • Bang bang, shock dead
  • Everybody's gone mad
  • All I wanna say is that
  • They don't really care about us
  • All I wanna say is that
  • They don't really care about us
  • Beat me, hate me
  • You can never break me
  • Will me, thrill me
  • You can never kill me
  • Do me, Sue me
  • Everybody do me
  • Kick me, strike me
  • Don't you black or white me
  • All I wanna say is that
  • They don't really care about us
  • All I wanna say is that
  • They don't really care about us
  • Tell me what has become of my life
  • I have a wife and two children who love me
  • I am the victim of police brutality, now
  • I'm tired of bein' the victim of hate
  • You're rapin' me of my pride
  • Oh, for God's sake
  • I look to heaven to fulfill its prophecy...
  • Set me free
  • Skin head, dead head
  • Everybody gone bad
  • trepidation, speculation
  • Everybody allegation
  • In the suite, on the news
  • Everybody dog food
  • black man, black mail
  • Throw your brother in jail
  • All I wanna say is that
  • They don't really care about us
  • All I wanna say is that
  • They don't really care about us
  • Tell me what has become of my rights
  • Am I invisible because you ignore me?
  • Your proclamation promised me free liberty, now
  • I'm tired of bein' the victim of shame
  • They're throwing me in a class with a bad name
  • I can't believe this is the land from which I came
  • You know I do really hate to say it
  • The government don't wanna see
  • But if Roosevelt was livin'
  • He wouldn't let this be, no, no
  • Skin head, dead head
  • Everybody gone bad
  • Situation, speculation
  • Everybody litigation
  • Beat me, bash me
  • You can never trash me
  • Hit me, kick me
  • You can never get me
  • All I wanna say is that
  • They don't really care about us
  • All I wanna say is that
  • They don't really care about us
  • Some things in life they just don't wanna see
  • But if Martin Luther was livin'
  • He wouldn't let this be
  • Skin head, dead head
  • Everybody gone bad
  • Situation, segregation
  • Everybody allegation
  • In the suite, on the news
  • Everybody dog food
  • Kick me, strike me
  • Don't you wrong or right me
  • All I wanna say is that
  • They don't really care about us
  • All I wanna say is that
  • They don't really care about us
  • All I wanna say is that
  • They don't really care about us
  • All I wanna say is that
  • They don't really care about us
  • All I wanna say is that
  • They don't really care about us
  • All I wanna say is that
  • They don't really care about us
