Being kicked by the angry feet of oppression
Being thrown into the river of segregation
And so, my friend, I ask,
What has happened to this nation?
The people of the Country refuse to Embrace
Their differences with those of a different race
And so, once again, I ask,
Why does the American dream go to waste?
A black man is this, A white man is that
And you are retarded as long as you're fat
And why do I need to ask,
Do you have to look at people like that?
People fought for freedom, which surely is gone
They died for rights they couldn't hold onto for long
And then again, I plead
Don't you think that that is wrong?
Now look with your heart, not just with your eyes
And don't take it by surprise
But the river of rights is flowing away
And the water will wash out to the bay
And the time to change our ways is TODAY
And listen closely, as I ask
Do you want freedom to run away?
