LyricsEdit

I've got a soul
That can not sleep
At night when something
Just ain't right

Blood red
But without sight
Exploding egos
In the night

Mix like sticks
Of dynamite
Red black or white
This is my fight

Come on courage
Let's be heard
Turn feelings
Into words

American equality
Has always been sour
An attitude
I would like to devour

My name is peace
This is my hour
Can I get
Just a little bit of power?

The power of equality
Is not yet what it ought to be
It fills me up like a hollow tree
The power of equality

Right or wrong
My song is strong
You don't like it
Get along

Say what I want
Do what I can
Death to the message
Of the Ku Klux Klan

I don't buy supremacy
Media chief
You menance me

The people you say
Cause all the crime
Wake up motherfucker
And smell the slime

Blackest anger
Whitest fear
Can you hear me
Am I clear

My name is peace
This is my hour
Can I get
Just a little bit of power?

The power of equality
Is not yet what it ought to be
It fills me up like a hollow tree
The power of equality

I've got tapes
I've got CD's
I've got my Public Enemy

My lilly white ass
Is tickled pink
When I listen to the music
That makes me think

Not another
Motherfuckin' politician
Doin' nothin' but something
For his own ambition

Never touch
The sound we make
Soul sacred love
Vows that we take

To create straight
What is true
Yo he's with me
And what I do

My name is peace
This is my hour
Can I get
Just a little bit of power?

The power of equality
Is not yet what it ought to be
It fills me up like a hollow tree
The power of equality

Madder than a motherfucker
Lick my finger
Can't forget
'Cause the memory lingers

Count 'em off quick
Little piccadilly sickness
Take me to the hick
Eat my thickness

I've got a welt
From the Bible belt
Dealing with the hand
That I've been dealt

Sitting in the grip
Of a killing fist
Giving up blood
Just to exist

Rub me wrong
And I get pissed
No I can not
Get to this

People in pain
I do not dig it
Change of brain
For Mr. Bigot

Little brother do you hear me
Have a heart oh come get near me
Misery is not my friend
But I'll break before I bend

What I see is insanity
What ever happened to humanity?
What ever happened to humanity?
What ever happened to humanity?
