"How Do You Sleep ?" as written by Christopher Bridges, Sean Garrett and Raymond / Oglesby....
So, you don't like it when we talk the truth
You don't like it when we wake up the youth
So you want us to keep it quiet
'Cause you wanna keep treating them like fools
Using them like tools
But let me tell you
We won't abandon our souls, no (selling?) for your down appearance
'Cause more than money we're seeking for wisdom
Trying, trying to bound freedom
Hey, there is no insanity nursing in our bosom
Still you wanna treat us like hot-dogs

You're lying, you're cheating, you're killing
But we're still standing, shouting, protesting, resisting
Fighting for our yearnings
Tools and fire we are spitting
While your lies and propaganda keep spreading
Our mothers are crying in (?) because your police and your son just keep killing
Mothers always crying and you never seem to hear them
You say there is peace while the bombings go (?)
You say there is welfare while my people keep starving
You say there is love when there is only hatred growing

But let me tell you, all :
We won't sell nor abandon our souls for your dog bills
Here we are standing to speak the truth, wake the youth and make them resist through (?)
'Cause you've been lying to them much too long
And now you keep spreading your lies and propanganda while you're talking for the truth, while you're shouting for the truth
How are you treating us now ?
This is the way you are keeping us under under under some human bondage all along the time
And you know we won't take it no more
'Cause today we are Sunday
You could send them, tell them
Still, we're gonna resist
And I know you don't like it when we talk the truth
I know you don't like it when we're trying to wake up the youth

You say there is peace when blood keeps flowing
You say there it's welfare while people stop starving
You say there is love when hatred keeps growing
You say it's a killer when fire keeps burning
Now, tell me Mr. President, how do you sleep at night ?
Yes, tell me Mr. President, how do you sleep at night ?
You don't like it when I tell the truth
You don't like it when I wake up the youth
