Somewhere between prayer and revolution
Between Jesus and Huey P. Newton
Thats where you find Jonny 5 shoot, shootin
Water guns at the audience while youre scootin'

Youre gluteous max due to the fact that hes tootin'
On the horn, gonna warn you that I'm rootin'
For the other team in the culture wars
So, I stab the beast belly as the vulture snores

Yo Joe, let it blow with convulsive force
Till walls fall off their false supports
Till Jericho's aircraft carriers alter course
And all brave young Americans are called ashore

Cause we've already lost the war they keep wagin
Splatterin the streets in battles that keep ragin
Bloodyin each page in the story that we're studyin
Each day the same just the names keep changin

Sayin the same things over again
Repeatin the same slogans, we don't know where we've been
We've been all over the globe on our government's funds
Leavin man, woman and child dead, bloody and numb

Sayin the same things over again
Repeatin the same slogans, we don't know where we've been
Weve been overthrowin leaders with legitimate views
Democratically elected but we didn't approve

How many times can the line divide?
How many wars to uphold some pride?
These fears uncontrolled just swoll the tide
Of blood in the streets while the people die

Ima keep on tryin, long as suffering's multiplyin
And why not?
These souls gettin tossed and left out to rot
My backs broad enough to help lift your cross

As long as you help with mine
The process of healin will take some time
To see the pain in your face is the same as mine
Its not a game or a race but the stakes is high

We maintain our mistakes for the sake of sides
As long as it takes, Ill say it one more time
As long as it takes, I'll say it one more time
As long as it takes, I'll say it one more time

Sayin the same things over again
Repeatin the same slogans, we don't know where we've been
We've been all over the globe on our government's funds
Leavin man, woman and child dead, bloody and numb

Sayin the same things over again
Repeatin the same slogans, we don't know where we've been
Weve been overthrowin leaders with legitimate views
Democratically elected but we didn't approve

(Same thing)
U.S. is not us
(Same thing)
And us is not we
(Same thing)
And we are not satisfied

(Same thing)
Were tired of the same thing
(Same thing)
And were ready to make change
(Same thing)
Are we ready to make change?

We want money for health care and public welfare
Free Mumia and Leonard Peltier
Human needs, not corporate greed
Drop the debt and legalize weed

We say yes to grassroots organization
No to neoliberal globalization
Bring the troops back to the U.S.A.
And shut down Guantanamo Bay

Who let 'em overthrow Jacobo Arbenz?
Who let 'em overthrow Mohammad Mosaddeq?
Who let 'em assassinate Salvador Allende?
I didn't let them but they did it anyway

Who let 'em overthrow Kwame Nkrumah?
Who let 'em overthrow Aristide?
Who let 'em assassinate Oscar Romero?
I didn't let 'em but they did indeed

But dont let them assassinate Hugo Chavez
Dont let them assassinate Evo Morales
And bring back Martin, Malcolm, Medgar
Hampton, Schwerner, Goodman, Chaney

Sayin the same things over again
