"Everyone Deserves Music" as written by Michael Franti, Carl Rogers Young and David Shul....
Everyone deserves music, sweet music
Everyone deserves music, sweet music

Seven in the morn' step on the floor
Walk into the kitchen and you open the door
There ain't much left in the bottle of juice
Because the seeds that you planted never reproduced
Computer still runnin'
But your mind has crashed
Because the plans that you made never came to pass
Now you reconizin' the times is hard
When you tryin' to take a bite out of your ATM card

[Chorus]
Everyone deserves music, sweet music
Everyone deserves music, sweet music
Even our worst enemies Lord, they deserves music, music
Even the quiet ones in our family, they deserve music

Ginny's home life wouldn't stabilize
At the age of 15 learned to drink and drive
No one ever could seem to empathize
Makin' babies in the back seat on traquilizers
Papa never was much a rolling stone see
He just like to sit and drink alone
Mama always tried to do the best she could
She would work all day and then come home to cook but,
We all vain, we all strange
We all drained, we all love to just complain.
But nobody wants to seem to get along, ya see
We got shame, we got pain
We got blame, we all a little bit insane
So that's why I sing this song ya know because

[Chorus]

So I pray for them and I'll play for them
So I pray for them and I'll play for them
We all vain, we all strange
We all drained, we all love to just complain.
But nobody wants to seem to get along, ya see
We got shame, we got pain
We got blame, we all a little bit insane
So that's why I sing this song ya know because

[Chorus]

    General CommentSpearhead is definitely underrated. This is a brilliant song with a catchy tune to it. The song is definitely saying that when you're in a rough patch in life, you need to remember that you need to have some time for yourself too, (or enjoying music, as it's presented here). So I think the "music" can be literally music, or just some time for yourself.

    Great song, I only wish more people would find out about Spearhead.

    General Comment^ Totalli agree.

    Spearhead is completely underrated. Not enough exposure in the world of gangster rap and industrial pop.


    But hey, more for me right.

    General CommentLove it. The lyrics hold sooooooooo much truth within their prose that certainly apply to the current state of our society. Both here in the US as well as around the world.

    Ditto on the opinions about Franti being so overlooked/underrated.
