"Avalanche" as written by and Prince Rogers Nelson....
He was not or never had been in favor
Of setting are people free
If it wasn't for the thirteenth Amendment
We woulda been born in slavery
He was not or never had been in favor
Of letting us vote so you see...
Abraham Lincoln was a racist who said
"You cannot escape from history"

Like the snow comin' down the mountain
That landed on Wounded Knee
Nobody wants to take the weight
The responsibility

Hear the joyous sound of freedom
The Harlem Renaissance
Hear Duke Ellington and his band
Kick another jungle jam
Ooh, do you wanna dance?
Who's that lurking in the shadows?
Mr. John Hammond with his pen in hand...
Sayin' "Sign you're kingdom over to me
And be known throughout the land!"
But, you ain't got no money, you ain't got no cash
So you sign yo name and he claims innocence
Just like every snowflake in an avalanche...

Like the snow comin' down the mountain
That landed on Wounded Knee
Nobody wants to take the weight
The responsibility
