where are you going
black eyed girl
can you explain this tangled world
I thought that freedom
was the key
but here you know
nothing's free

at night I dream
of being young
why didn't childhood
keep me long
why am I fighting
for my voice
when I could sing
way back then

where are you going
black eyed girl
is hatred winning?

she thinks I'm fucked up
cuz I think
I can do good things
and still see
the vicious cycle
dissolving me
and hatred continuing

well you can't keep
a good woman down
we gotta know
who's keeping us down
before we can rise
(we can rise)

the way I see it the enemy
is not my sexuality
stop pointing
your fat finger at me
cuz I will not be shut up
no I will not be shut up
no I will not be shut up

    General CommentThis was the first b&a song i heard, since then i bought 2 of their albums. I love the beat and the feel to the song, the lyrics are so meaningful.
