well how much further have we gotten did you say?
200 years ago we still had slavery and a yellow plague.
100 years ago we had our boys in the mines while their wives and children were starving.
and 40 years ago it took the nat'l guard to let the black kids in public school.

and you dont think we got it so bad no more, no, you dont think we got it bad today.

the greatest nation in the world as you say has been at war since i can remember,
and miners black lung has been replaced by cancer,
it takes everyone away.

well blacks and whites dont trust each other:
you can call it paranoia or affirmative actions reverse psychology.
thats what it seems like to me.

when the bosses found out we wont take it lying down they packed up their factories and moved to mexico.
took all the jobs to mexico.

im not trying to bring nobody down, just saying our fight aint over yet.

    General CommentGreat song about how we need to continue to strive for reform. We've changed the face of the world before, and we need to keep doing it now. No more complacency, don't be satisfied, continue to struggle.
