I have been struggling to express my frustration with the current social climate in the United States. I think we live in a luxurious place, overflowing with opportunity for everyone. But there are people, and systems in place that specifically target, whether intentionally, or unintentionally, historically oppressed people. Over the course of 3 days, I feel like I have made my point more clearly than I have been able to in months passed.

Peace and blessings,
Sheldon

lyrics

Chorus:

This is revolution music
Better get used to it
This is revolution Music
Better get used to it

Verse

Why must you apologize
Every single time you lie
Caught you red handed put the cookie jar down
Thought that you were on my side
You took me on a ride
Now I've got you cornered and there's nowhere to hide

Chorus:

This is revolution music
Better get used to it
This is revolution Music
Better get used to it

Verse 2

So the health care, and the cop shootings
Got me over here thinkin' about moving'
Maybe changing teams
I was with the Bruins
Now I'm up in Canada Hokey puck shooting'
Oh, but you want my money though
Isn't it funny how cash and compassion go hand in hand
You couldn't send me to school
But you had the cash to send me to Pakistan

Damn

Chorus:

This is revolution music
Better get used to it
This is revolution Music
Better get used to it

All jokes aside, I'm tired of living in prejudice
I wanna force eyes upon the color blind Edipus
And make him deal with his Edifice
Let him know when he spits from the precipice
That it lands on me and they never miss

When he cries it lands in my eyes
So when I shed tears I cry for both lives

What a wonderful burden to bear
Always the one to be fair
Always the one to secede
Always the one to believe
Always the one to be there when you need
but when I need you most you just get up and leave

This is revolution music

You thought that this might be the end of the song but you're dead wrong
Still living in slavery times
Working on black-tory lines
Prisons filled to the brim with innocent minds
Who were just trying to survive

Native Americans still not part of the conversation
Mexicans threatened with deportation
Y'all were the one's who invaded this nation
Face it

Wait, here I go blaming again
Pointing the finger at you and your friends
When there's more of us that you ever have been
If there was a battle we surely would win

This is revolution music
