Ben Harper - Black Rain lyrics

you left them swimming for their lives

down in new orleans

can't afford a gallon of gasoline

with your useless degrees and contrary statistics

this government business is straight up sadistic

now you don't fight for us

but expect us to die for you

you have no sympathy for us

but still i cry for you

now you may kill the revolutionary

but the revolution you can never bury

don't speak to us like we work for you

selling false hope like some new dope we're addicted to

i'm not a desperate man but these are desperate times at hand

this generation is beyond your command

and it won't be long

'til the people flood the streets

to take you down

one and all

a black rain is gonna fall
